It’s been a long time coming, but Blizzard has finally launched the online character profile system for Diablo III, meaning if you have a web browser, you have the ability to gloat about your in-game prowess.
It’s essentially the same system we’ve seen for World of Warcraft, with information on everything you could want to know about your character: Gear, stats, difficulty progression… you can even see which classes you prefer, if you’re a multi-class sort of player.
And it’s not just your own stuff that’s on display: Your friends’ profiles are also now available, and you can check out all of their stats, specs, and what sort of gear they’re luggin’ around.
- View your heroes’ gear, stats, and skills. How high have you raised your characters’ attributes? What are they wielding in each slot? What are their most prominent gear bonuses? What skills comprise their current build? Nuance awaits you in the Heroes tab.
- Track your game progress. How many acts have you cleared? What bosses have you shredded in each difficulty? How far have you leveled up your hardcore and normal artisans? Find out in the Career tab. You can also check your play time (by class) throughout your entire Diablo III career, and learn how many monsters and elites you’ve slain.
- Share with your friends. The Friends tab lets you check out your BattleTag friends’ characters, so that you can quickly compare notes on gear, skill & rune choices, and everything in between. You can also click on a BattleTag in the Diablo III forums to go directly to that player’s profile.
But wait – there’s more. The Blizzard web team reports:
We like that profiles provide for easy sharing, comparing, and refining of your heroes as you pursue monster-slaying mastery. In fact, we like profiles so much that we plan to add even more functionality to them as Diablo III evolves, including detailed statistics and tabs for achievements and artisans.
…and they’re open to suggestions, too. If you’ve got any ideas about what you think should be included in these Diablo III character profiles, make sure you let Blizzard know – the Diablo III forums are a good place to start.
