Diablo 2 Sanctuary, Server Status
3:27 PM | Charles George | Comment on this story

If you managed to score a copy of Diablo 2 at Macworld or a local retailer and already need some help with the game, Blizzard has come to your aid. Blizzard's new Diablo 2 walkthrough/hint page The Chaos Sanctuary opened for buisness yesterday. If you don't have the game yet, or are waiting for your copy, you can read about the monsters, goodies and quests in-depth. Since all "spoiler" sections are clearly labeled, you can read without fear of ruining your experience.

Also, the Diablo 2 development team made a post to their message boards which became a short Q&A about the progress on the Battle.net Realms (localized game servers). According to Blizzard, Diablo 2 sold so fast that the Battle.net realms could not keep up with demand, but they are back on track and ready for Mac players. Here is an excerpt:

"Q: Will the Realms be prepared for the Mac Gamers about to
assault the servers?

A: The work we are doing on the Diablo II Realms and Battle.net
will benefit Macintosh players as well, so we are looking forward
to making our entire community as happy as we can. We are very
excited to be welcoming Macintosh gamers to Diablo II so quickly
after launching the game on the PC and we hope that our Macintosh
fans will be as excited as we are to bring them the world of
Diablo II far quicker than any game in our company's history."

Trust us guys, the Macintosh fans are even more excited than you are about getting this game in our sweaty, grasping hands so quickly. Bravo, Blizzard!
