If you’re still grinding away in the depths of Hell trying to gear up your hero (or heroes) to the max, yet have no massive player towns to stand around in showing off all your epic lootz, then rejoice raiders! Because today Blizzard has just released Diablo III character profiles that can be viewed and shared online. Similar to Blizzard’s other game World of Warcraft, character profiles give you the power to:
- 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.
To view your own character profile, just log in to your Battle.net account from any page on the Diablo III community site and then make sure that you’ve selected your Diablo III BattleTag in the login box. Once you’ve selected your BattleTag, choose ‘view profile’.
Blizzard has also announced that they plan to add even more functionality to the profiles as Diablo III evolves, including detailed statistics and tabs for achievements and artisans.
Character profiles are great and all, but maybe Blizzard should focus on releasing some bigger features. You know, like the PvP modes that were originally supposed to be included when the game launched back in May…
