Update: Method has now defeated the Butcher in Inferno mode!

Diablo 3 - Most Awesome Video Spoiler Ever. Blue Posts, Giveaway

Breath of the Black Prince
To go along with the new The Black Prince faction there are some quests that end with the reward of a legendary item, the Breath of the Black Prince! This item is likely used to upgrade your gear in some way. Before helping Wrathion, you first share a drink with him while talking about the future of Azeroth.

The first quest in the series requires an honored reputation level, which is earned by killing the mogu and mantid in the Townlong Steppes and the Dread Wastes, as well as any raid creatures.

You must also collect Sigil of Wisdom x 10 and Sigil of Power x 10 from Mogu'shan Vaults, Heart of Fear, or Terrace of Endless Spring. While you are raiding, you need to defeat the Sha of Fear in Terrace of Endless Spring to obtain a Chimera of Fear.

At some point after this he will reward you with a Breath of the Black Prince, but the quests are not chained yet, so we can't be certain as to what the requirements are.

According to the quest descriptions he seems heavily invested in the fate of Pandaria, even hinting towards the oncoming Horde and Alliance war fleets that will turn the beach of Krasarang Wilds into a battlezone in Patch 5.1.

Bonus Level-90 Arena Pass Realm

In addition to granting access to the exclusive level-85 Arena Pass realm, players will also gain access to the special level-90 competition when the realm reopens a few weeks after Mists of Pandaria launches. This means that Arena Pass subscribers who have purchased the expansion will be able to access level-90 gear and talents, and be able to take a level-90 monk into the Arena with top level gear.

Players who purchase an Arena Pass and participate in the competition can earn an Armored Murloc in-game pet. The top players will also contend for a chance to achieve the “Vanquisher” title for their live characters.
If you would like to demonstrate your Arena prowess, are eager for a chance to earn exclusive loot, or just want to reserve a spot in the level-90 Mists of Pandaria Arena Pass realm, the time to register is now!

Inferno Skeleton King Cleared
Method has taken on Inferno Skeleton King and defeated him!

They have only killed the Skeleton King at this point. Do note that up to the Skeleton king is only part of the first act and they still have lots of the game to go till they complete act 1.

Another point to be made is that this is a group of fully co-ordinated, skilled, dedicated and hardcore gamers who have been playing regularly since the moment of release. It will take quite a while longer for the average player and even most seasoned gamers to reach this point. That being said, it's amazing to see the speed in which they have reached this stage of the game, but remember that the hardest is yet to come...

Meh, I prefer to take my time, soak up the atmosphere, listen to the story, and loot every single damn barrel I find.

But yeah, as others here have said, completing normal mode is by no means finishing the game... It's just the start. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Diablo 3 Beaten in 6 Hours
That's the problem... people are used to playing Skyrim
You can beat Skyrim in a few hours if your intent is to rush to the end of the game as fast as possible. You can beat the original Super Mario Bros in 5 minutes.

If your intent is to simply race to the end of the game as quickly as possible I'm sure you can complete Normal difficulty in very little time. If your intent is to take your time and enjoy it, stop worrying about what people rushing to the end of the game think.

Luckily, unlike other games, regardless of how quickly you want to rush to the end, the near-limitless content provided through randomized events, dungeons, enemies and items (and their random drop chance) mean that you'll be able to play for years to come. Welcome to Diablo III, please enjoy. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    I know, discussed a lot of times, if only the name of the site was changed you wouldn't get the fuss
    See the reply to the same question below.

    The fact that D3 was bundled with the annual pass for over a million players makes it "slightly" relevant.

    I am not sure what is so hard to understand about this? You don't tell the man who invites you into his house what to do in his house.

    Whatever your comment on D3s longetivity is concerned, I believe you are just as spot on as people who proclaimed Age of Conan, Warhammer, Aion, Rift and SWToR to be the next WoW Killer.
    because only things YOU like are the ones that last forever... yea that makes you soo less ignorant. You see the future better then everyone else? Diablo isn't an mmo it dosn't compete directly with wow, different fan base. Why you bring up other mmos and thier ignorance that matches yours is beyond logic. Then gain Blizzard worshippers have never been logical.

    btw to you and all the other bobble head posters agreeing with you, internet=/=house. It's pretty much infinitely closer to a business and customers/recipients matter a lot more there.

    It's amazing how people who love blizzard are so close-minded then yell at others for being close minded. The hypocrisy makes you much worse.

    Yea it's pretty stupid. Despite this site being called MMOchamp it is incredibly biased on reporting basically only 1 mmo and even then it loses focus because their god blizzard released a second game.

    They might as well report who beat every other game that comes out first if they ever want to be thought of anything other then blizzard slaves with no mind.

    So there will be a level 90 Arena Pass realm after Mists comes out. The Arena Pass season is six weeks starting end of May.

    Yeah, I'm still going to stand by my August Mists release statement.

    I love Diablo. I have the Annual Pass. I haven't played WoW save when Diablo servers were down since the games release.

    That said, reading over various thoughts and view points on the validity of Diablo news here on mmo-champion, I must wonder if there's any incentive (read: $$$) for the reports (read: advertising) of Diablo 3 here. As other have said, it's not a MMO, merely another Blizzard product. I don't recall this many reports on other actual MMO's that go as in depth as these ones have. A mention of SWTOR? Sure. A tidbit about Conan? Yup. An in depth analysis of classes, mechanics, and systems within those games? Not really.

    To answer that post from Captainarlong, D3 is just way more popular than those 2 games you mentioned. Hell I don't play them and don't know anyone else who plays them either. Not saying those games aren't popular but D3 is way more popular than them. D3 brought in old diablo players,WoW players, and new players. Just saying... This site should be called MMO-Complainer.com All i see on forums is a bunch of complaining about the most stupid crap, at least it's entertaining though lol.

Updating with it on the site just because its them seem like a fanboy service to me.

    In regards to the other news the legendary item sounds interesting tbh. Would be fun if they made a new way to obtain a legendary (as long as its not overly easy ofc).
    I think ppl are missing the point why it's on the front page of MMO lol. It's because it's the most recent popular game released... derp. Keep raging ppl you making me laugh! lol.

    All of these people are on Inferno Mode, and I'm still trying to get a computer to run D3. Certainly didn't take people long to poop-sock the game.
