Blizzard switch on Diablo III character profiles

The time to appreciate your Diablo III heroes is now as Blizzard enable character profiles where players can bog at the gear and stats of their own assortment of demon slayers.

It also gives easier tracking for Act progress as well as reveal the (embarrassing?) hours you've clocked up, and of course you can inspect the heroic deeds of your Battle.net chums.

Blizzard has blogged a little about the character profiles which are there to provide "easy sharing, comparing, and refining" of player heroes. There'll be adding more features.

"Yup, they’re ready," blogged Battle.net. You can view character profiles by logging in and then checking the "upper-right hand corner of your screen" of any Diablo III community site. "Make sure that you've selected your Diablo III BattleTag in the login box, and, once you've selected your BattleTag, choose 'view profile'."

Character profile highlights:

• 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 the Career 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.


More development is planned: "We like that profiles provide for easy sharing, comparing, and refining of your heroes as you pursue monster-slaying mastery. 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," added Blizzard.

Bloody hell, Blizzard is getting more and more ridiculous by the day.
Diablo III was multiplayer only because Blizz wanted to give us the possibility to track and compare stats of our characters?
Besides, they enabled this "high-profile" comparation and grindability for what? Their game can be finished in 20 hours. SO WHAT'S THE POINT?
Hah, I wouldn't touch it with a stick.

Well if somebody lends you his account it's still worth giving it a try :).
A buddy got bored of it without even finishing it once though so there is that possibility.

Well, there's that. But Blizz ain't getting my money.
It's going to Runic instead.

I still love the game, but they spend so much time on the new upgrades for the game, that they don't even attend to the problems we are still facing... like unsuspecting ping increases.

Blizzard in my opinion has got terrible support, at least on the European side (not sure about other servers).
