Basically when you create a new B.net character in DII you can choose whether it is ladder or non-ladder. If you pick ladder and they reset it your char(s) become non-ladder. So it is a completely fresh start from that point until the next ladder reset which I think can span anywhere from 6 months to over a year. That is a lot of time to trade and sell items, including elites.

I was just referring to ladder resets in general. I don't think we will see them in D3 if it involved deleting people's characters. But what you pointed out (choosing ladder or non-ladder) it makes much more sense.

I'm sure we won't have that feature at release, however.

Edit: also forgot to mention, here's some exciting news!!

We're currently in the process of preparing the next beta patch for release and wanted to provide all beta testers with a heads-up that a character wipe will be included. Please note that, as with previous character wipes, this wipe will also affect gold, items, followers, and artisans. (Beta Bucks will be reset, as well.)

We're hoping to release Beta Patch 13 before the weekend, but we don't yet have a precise ETA. As always, we'll provide more information as it becomes available, and patch notes will be posted here once the patch is live.

Thanks for your continued feedback and testing!

And to back it up, we now know it's the patch everyone has been waiting for!

I would honestly be surprised if they don't have ladders. It's one of the things that has kept diablo 2 alive for all these years... if everyone just keeps their character forever, there ceases to be a point in playing. With a fresh ladder, you get the rush of trying to get a fully equipped character before everyone else does, and ithe economy is so much more vibrant and interesting (crappy items are suddenly prized when nobody has any items).

Also ladder resets are an amazingly good idea after patches. Blizzard needs to tweak some item stats and/or drop rates? Well on the ladder, you won't have to compete vs people who go the item easy before the drop rate was reduced.

Yeah I just never participated in the ladders, but by the sounds of it apparently it's a pretty big deal redface.gif

I honestly just don't have the time to compete in them, otherwise seems like quite the rush biggrin.gif

When Blizzard resets the DII ladder, your characters and items are still available but just on non-ladder. What is the deal with the rune system in DIII? Not really sure what it is all about tbh.

You don't really compete in ladders, trying to get and stay at a high rank is pretty dumb and pointless. Its just fun to start from scratch with everyone else.

Heres a example of what a rune can do to your abilities.

There should be a vid like this for every class on blizzard's D3 class site.

Yeah, every rune changes the spell visually as well as the effect. I'm not sure if every rune rank changes it visually too, though.

are those RUNES or GEMS that change your skills? are the RUNES different colours now instead of rankings? or both?

Runes change your skills. There should be an article posted soon on the Diablo3.com homepage that gives more information about the rune and skill system (they are revising it, just like the System Changes article posted a couple weeks ago).

Gems are just like D2. Except, there's a crapload more qualities of them.

Gems enhance items with sockets in them. You place gems in the sockets to give bonuses based on the gem.
