BlizzCon 2010 took place at Anaheim Convention Center on 21-22 October 2010. The fifth character, the Demon Hunter was revealed, along with Diablo III's PvP Battle Arenas, which were playable by fans on the show floor, along with all five characters in a new PvM demo.

A great deal of new game information was revealed during the panels and interviews, and through new media releases.

Panels[edit | edit source]

When Blizzard released the Blizzcon 2010 panel line up, the Diablo communtity was less than overjoyed to see only three panels, one of them an open Q&A. (Compared to the 6 Starcraft IIand 7 World of Warcraft panels, just 3 for Diablo III seemed stingy.)

The 3 Diablo III Panels were Diablo III Gameplay, Crafting Sanctuary, and Open Q&A.

Diablo III Open Q&A[edit | edit source]

This open Q&A put the developers on the stage and lots of fans in the audience. As usual, it was mostly filled with "noob" questions covering old info, but there were some new tidbits to enjoy. A rough transcript of the "new" information questions can be seen here:
