Blizzard Posts Diablo III Starter Edition & Guest Pass Deets

Blizzard has posted more details about the Diablo III Starter Edition & Guest Pass. They’re not earth shattering, but if you have questions, we now have answers.

First up, the Starter Edition is a chance to get your beak wet, so to speak, without committing fully. It’s a limited version of Diablo 3 available for free. NOTE: in the Starter Edition, players have access to act I, but only up to the Skeleton King. There is also a level 13 cap, no access to the real money auction house, and you can only experience matchmaking with other Starter Edition players. Obviously, if you want to do more, you’ll have to pay.

Oh, there’s a catch: You can’t actually get the Starter Edition until Diablo 3 has been out for 30 days. Unless you have a guest pass. The Guest Pass is a feature available to fully paid-up Diablo 3 players, allowing them to give the Starter Edition to a friend, and they’re included with all boxed copies of Diablo 3.

I’d love to receive a guest pass if anyone has a spare.
My e-mail is

It could sway me to buy the game, as currently i’m not planning to. I don’t like how it’s being called a WoW clone, among other things. But only way to know if that’s true is to find out for myself.

Anyway it would be greatly appreciated.
