The Diablo III beta is currently undergoing maintenance as we prepare to deploy the next beta patch. We anticipate that downtime will last for about 8 to 9 hours, until approximately 8:00 p.m./9:00 p.m. PDT.
Please note that Beta Patch 16 will include a character wipe. As with previous character wipes, this wipe will also affect gold, achievements, items, followers, and artisans.
Thank you for your patience!
No patch notes yet.
I'd guess they'll change the skill trees around to show off some different skills (it seems as much marketing as game design at this point) and they'll do some fixes to the auction house UI.
