Seems the Blizzard devs are quite pleased with the effect they’ve achieved in Diablo 3 which highlights dungeon entrances and exit areas. Apparently they’ve managed to implement an indicator that is subtle, yet awesome.
Here’s what Bashiok had to add to the conversation during a recent Battle.net forum thread where fans were hoping for blue input on this new effect…

To explain, it’s the effect that when you mouse over a dungeon entrance or exit, it lights up (or in some way indicates it’s a clickable entry/exit).
It’s one of those things you don’t really think about, and only realize how much it adds after it’s implemented. Plus the ones we have are just sweet looking.
This is sort of game-designery geekiness at work; reveling in our own creation. 😉
