"Paragon System" Coming to Diablo III
At level 60 and have nothing else to do in Diablo III? Well, the new Paragon System is here to help. Starting in patch 1.0.4, any experience gained after reaching level 60 will go towards new “Paragon” levels.
Each new Paragon level will get you basic stat increases, as well as an extra 3% Magic Find and Gold Find. The amount of experience points required to get to the first Paragon level will be on par with how many points it takes to get from 59 to 60.
Also, your character portrait will get a special border around its in-game party frame to show your achievements in the Paragon levels. You will get a totally new frame every 10 levels.

Well folks, it’s been a long wait. Since the year 2000, in fact (12 years…can you believe it?) since Blizzard released Diablo II. And what a memorable game it was, with all the nostalgia of the first game, but with more goodies and little surprised that made it even than its predecessor. The real question today is…does Diablo III bring the same concept to the table? Offering both the feeling that Diablo fans have been waiting for, AND new and exciting aspects that comes with today’s technology? Stay a while and listen, and find out.
Diablo III Coming April 17th?
More rumours have started to float around on what Diablo III's possible release date. The new date appears to be April 17, but it's not 100% confirmed.
The new rumour comes from Italian website mmorpgitalia, which claims that Acitivision Italy has informed retailers to clear some shelf space on April 17. Blizzard has yet to comment on this new rumour, but Game Director Jay Wilson that an all-important announcement” will be on its way soon (maybe the confirmation of this release date or a future date?).
Anyway, for the time being, don’t get too excited.
