Reaper of Souls Collector’s Edition

Diablo 3 CE Reaper of Souls Pre OrderLast but not least, there is a retail Collector’s Edition for hardcore fans. The Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls Collector’s Edition comes with all of the exact same exclusive loot that’s included in the Deluxe Digital Edition, plus these extras:

  • Malthael Mouse Pad – Collector’s mouse pad featuring the Angel of Death.
  • Exclusive Collector’s Edition Hardback Art Book – This collector’s book will showcase the artwork that went into developing Reaper of Souls.
  • Behind the Scenes Blu-Ray/DVD – This 2 disc set includes in-depth interviews with the development team as well as members of the Diablo 3 community.

Buyers of the Collector’s Edition will receive a redeemable code for 3 Hearthstone Expert Card Packs.

Assuming the exclusive hardbound art book is similar to the one included in the original Diablo 3 CE, that alone will be worth $20.

Reaper of Souls Bonus Loot

Update: Blizzard announced that they will reward players who pre-order the game by granting 2 additional loot items: Wings of Valor & Valla the Demon Hunter. Wings of Valor are an aesthetic item similar to the wings included in the original Diablo 3 CE. Valla is a future hero unlock for Blizz’s upcoming MOBA, Heroes of the Storm. Purchasers of the retail edition just need to redeem their in-game key by March 31st in order to get the bonus loot, so you can still qualify even if you don’t pre-order, just as long as you redeem your game key by March 31st.

And yet another update: Blizz has sweetened things a bit more by adding Hearthstone Expert Card Packs to the offer. No pre-order necessary. Standard versions come with 1 pack, Digital Deluxe and CE come with 3.

      I used a dodge / backlash build when I had rellay poor gear (this was before inferno got nerfed at first time, no MP levels etc.) but since I got some better ones, I can tell you that it’s far more effective to stay alive by LoH / LS and passive damage reduction by armor and resolve. h ttp://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/SaltyDaveIV-1453/hero/1370583 With these (nowadays cheap) gear I can faceroll MP7 Act3, often 2 rarely 3 elite packs at the same time.
