    Source is from a Blizzard Email newsletter I got about 5 minutes ago.
    Personally I don't like WoW nor Diablo games, but I know they're big, so this'll probably be nice news to some of you.

    Sign up link to the Annual Pass with free Diablo 3 is here (US Only, as far as I can tell): http://us.media.bliz.../wap/en-us.html

    I see an asterix.

    This is a trap.

    What do they want? >>;

    (That, and I'm not entirely sure if Diablo ]I[ is worth playing that sh*t game called WoW)

    This news is quite old actually. To get Diablo III you have to pay for a year of WOW which can be between time cards or the recurring options offered through the website. So if you already play WOW and plan to continue to for a year then this is a good deal otherwise it is sorta crappy.

    Haha, I just looked at the link, and the asterisk pretty much repeats what it already said :P
    Also, this is somewhat old news. Don't know why they took so long to email you though.

    I just got the newsletter like 15 minutes ago, and I couldn't find it posted here anywhere yet. If it's found already posted, please delete this thread mod/admin/pingie.

    This was announced around the time of Blizzcon when Mists of Pandaria was revealed.
    For people who actually play WoW, the incentive of guaranteed beta participation is every bit as valuable as (if not more than) a free D3 license. WoW players also get a free flying mount on all characters to one WoW account.

    (i have multiple WoW accounts on one battle.net account, but only one copy of D3 will be granted per battle.net account in this deal, at least that was the fine print when i signed up.)

    Sorry it may not have been posted, I was just stating that this has been going on for a month or 2 already, so a few people may already know about it. I still thik it oy benefits the people who continue to play WOW monthly since a year of WOW is more than the game will be at retail.

    That's actually pretty cool of Blizzard. I try to avoid casual MMOs, so I can't take advantage of this, but it's a good deal for WoW players.

    I started this deal about 2 months ago at least. It's pretty old news.

    I got an e-mail about this before, but just deleted it.

    Never going back to WoW, but for those who play, that's a sick deal.
