Twelve years is a long time to wait for a game, but the Diablo faithful have had to do just that since developer Blizzard released Diablo II in 2000. Since then people have leveled and looted for years and gradually mastered its gameplay systems. Blizzard too has learned a lot over the last decade, and has wisely applied these lessons to the design of Diablo III.

At its most basic level, Diablo III is still largely the same game, but with flexible skill systems that encourage you to constantly reshape your hero into whatever you need them to be. In the end, Diabloâ€™s classic, lootdriven formula where you pick from a few pre-determined classes and level them up proves to be incredibly addictive the third time around.
Some people love Diablo III for its story, and the third’s narrative is stronger than its predecessor, but still filled with clichés and predictable twists. But that doesn’t really matter all that much, because the story merely serves as a way to tie together the various dungeons and quests in your hunt for gear. Quality voice acting and some truly incredible cut-scenes between Acts help flesh out the universe, but past the first playthrough it’s not really anything worth paying attention to.
What is the Diablo® III auction house system? Acquiring epic new gear for your characters has always been a big part of the Diablo® experience. Because of this, players found numerous ways to trade and otherwise obtain items both within and outside of the game. Many of these methods were inconvenient and either tedious (e.g. advertising for a desired trade in Battle.net® chat channels and waiting for responses) or unsafe (e.g. giving credit card information to third-party trading sites). With Diablo III, we’re introducing a powerful auction house system that will provide a safe, fun, and easy-to-use way for players to buy and sell the loot they find in the game. Two different versions of the auction house will be available in Diablo III: one based on in-game gold, which players acquire through their adventures, and one based on real-world currency.

Quests Guide In each of the four acts of Diablo III, as the hero or heroine you have a special set of tasks to undertake to save the world of Sanctuary from certain peril, and of course in the role-playing world these are referred to as quests. Many of these quests are granted to your adventurer by the nonplayer characters of the game, often the townspeople you encounter, while others you may simply stumble upon as you work your way through the game.Similarly, some of these quests play an integral part in the plot and are required to advance in or between the areas and acts. Others can be skipped to focus on completing the ultimate goals of the game, namely slaying the Lord of Terror and his most formidable minions and allies, but there are trades-off to skipping them.Quests in Diablo III tend to lean on the simpler side.
Tips and Tricks 1) Show item stats: CTRL + Mousing over and item on the ground (outside of inventory) shows stats. (kallell) Doing this while having your inventory open should compare the item on the ground to what you currently are wearing as well. (broken1000) 2) Force Move: There is a “force move” (labeled “Move” and is unbound by default) button that is unbound by default. This is helpful for running through packs of monsters and not accidentally clicking and attacking one. (need to manually bind) (kallell) 3) Link Items: You can link items by bringing up the chat text box and shift+clicking an item, making it easier to show items to people to see if they need them or if you're in different areas. (twincannon) 4) Inspection: If you think you have an upgrade for someone you're playing with, instead of asking him you can inspect him by right clicking his icon on the top-left. (twincannon)
