Hatred and Discipline by Micky Neilson

Hatred and Discipline is a short story that was released in 2012. It was part of something Blizzard was doing in the days before Diablo III was released. You can read Hatred and Discipline online (or download it as a PDF).

Blizzard revealed each of the five classes of playable characters in Diablo III, one by one, before the release of the game.  There was a “Gathering of the Heroes” page (which has since been taken down) where players could watch a class video, and learn more about a specific class.

Season Journey Chapter III (Season 7)

Season Journey Chapter III complete Season 7Players who reach Chapter III in the Season Journey (for Season 7) have hit Level 70 and more than likely have started working on their Paragon Points.  Players start Chapter III with two of the set pieces offered by Haedrig’s Gift this Season.
