For the first time, maybe ever, Blizzard has released information about one of their games before it was datamined. The official Diablo 3 community site was recently updated with information on the classes (overview, skills, background, unique equipment, and armor progression), items (common, crafted, legendary, and set), and even a Skill Calculator that is complete with runestone effects for each ability.
While there is a disclaimer at the bottom of the page stating: “Note: Content is not final and is subject to change at any time.”, all these updates are very exciting even though they only contain what is currently in the game’s database.
Browsing all of this information is sure to put a smile on your face as there are quite a few references to previous Blizzard games, especially Diablo 2. However, if you are anything like us, most of your time will be spent building the perfect PVP build with the Skill Calculator- even if the information may change before release. We are also going to start posting theorycrafted builds explaining our skill and runestone decisions as well as discussing situations in which to use them, so be sure to check back soon!
