Diablo 3 Character Profiles go live

Blizzard plans to add more functionality in the future

Blizzard's launched Diablo 3 Character Profiles on


According to the developer, the Profiles provide for "easy sharing, comparing, and refining of your heroes as you pursue monster-slaying mastery."

It adds: "In fact, we like profiles so much that we plan to add even more functionality to them as Diablo III evolves, including detailed statistics and tabs for achievements and artisans."

Profiles give players 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 theCareer 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.

Blizzard has said recently that it's working on max-level content for Diablo 3, to give high-level characters a reason to keep playing.
