WRUP: Diablo 3 Diablo 3 Diablo 3 Diablo 3 Diablo 3


Every week, just at the start of the weekend, we catch up with the WoW Insider staff and ask them, "What are you playing this week?" -- otherwise known as: WRUP. Join us to see what we're up to in and out of game, and catch us in the comments to let us know what you're playing, too!

Diablo III, man. Diablo III.

Diablo III Diablo III Diablo III Diablo III, Diablo III. Diablo 3? No, no, no: Diablo III.

So, Diablo III -- What aRe yoU Playing? This week's Diablo III: What's your preferred Diablo III class?

Adam Holisky
I'll be in the MoP beta, leveling with ease, since most people are D3ing it up right now. In Diablo III, I've got a wizard that just finished Act IV. Amazing stuff.

Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) Diablo III and some Diablo III. And maybe the beta. But mostly Diablo III. I'm playing a demon hunter at the moment because shooting the crap out of things is incredibly entertaining.

Basil Berntsen (@outdps) There's only time for one game in my life, and I'm not switching. I'm playing WoW.

Chase Hasbrouck (@alarondruid) (@alaronmonk) Barbarian solo, demon hunter duo with a friend. Maybe I'll think about that WarcraftWorld game; I hear it's pretty good.

Christian Belt I thought I might finally dig in to a little indie game I've had sitting around on my hard drive for some time now. Diablo, I think it's called? I believe this is the third game in the series, though this is the first I've heard of it. I got it free with my World of Warcraft subscription, downloaded it but never played it. I hear there are loots, and demons, and such? I'll see if there isn't some kind of wizard class and try this game out. I love supporting the little guys!

Dan Desmond (@antigen_) Diablo III Friday. Diablo III Saturday. Diablo III Sunday. I'm playing a monk solo on my first playthrough, then probably joining up with some friends on a jaunt into Nightmare.

Daniel Whitcomb (@danielwhitcomb) Yeah. Diablo III. I'm playing a witch doctor because the combination of pets, sweet targeted AoEs, and crowd control is right up my alley. Plus the witch doctor is just a righteous dude, man.

Dawn Moore (@dawnwow) I was playing a monk, but I don't think it's quite for me. I think I'll try a demon hunter or a wizard next. Believe it or not, though, I've been playing more MoP beta the past few days since most of my friends couldn't put in many hours on Diablo 'til this weekend.

Elizabeth Wachowski (@leeatwaterlives) I'm giving Diablo III a shot, because I love dungeon crawlers even if I never made it far in Diablo II. I started with a witch doctor but I wasn't really feeling it, so now I'm trying out a monk and wizard.

Fox Van Allen (@foxvanallen) My last weekend in Boston, so I'm checking things off my Boston bucket list: Newbury Street, Christopher's, Tealuxe, b.good, Harvard Square, and the South End. When I'm not living it up like a terminally ill patient, I'll be playing Diablo III, of course. I chose the witch doctor after asking my friend @windkeeper4 what class I should play. No regrets, but I'm totally over the sound of him shooting darts. Enough already.

Kelly Aarons (@Cadistra) It's the May long weekend over here in Canada-land, so I'm hoping to get some outdoorsy time in. My tendonitis is just too painful right now to play anything for long periods of time, so I'm going for little 30-minute chunks of Diablo III. I will be playing a monk. :>.

Mathew McCurley (@gomatgo) Diablo III, Diablo III, and I'll be catching up on all my work that I missed for the last three days. Oy. I am playing a barbarian.

Matt "Matticus" Low (@matticus) Diablo III! Wizard, just because I like having different ways to blow things up!

Matt Rossi (@MatthewWRossi) MATT SMASH!

Matt Walsh (@Rhidach) I'll also be playing Diablo III. This is my first game in the series, and I'm really liking it. Currently playing a wizard, and channeling Emperor Palpatine while throwing out chaining Electrocutes and yelling "unlimited power!"

Megan O'Neill (@slowpoker) Demonology beta! Also rebuilding my live WoW UI after a corrupted file borked it. Playing on beta prepared me for default UI raiding, I swear. I have beta and alts to keep me occupied for a while, so I've still yet to fully download D3.

Michael Gray (@writegray) I really want to be contrary guy and buck the trend but ... Diablo III. I'm wizarding it up with my wife, the monk.

Olivia Grace (@oliviadgrace) I haven't even downloaded Diablo III. I really do play WoW the vast majority of the time and barely have the time or inclination for other games. I might have a look at it after it's calmed down a bit, but for now it's PvPing on the priest and the mage, and a bit of really awful huntering on the Arena Pass!

Robin Torres (@cosmicgeek) Diablo III. Monk solo. Demon hunter with The Spousal Unit's Barbarian.

The weekend is the perfect time to kick back, relax and enjoy some game time. Are you an achievement junkie? Can't get enough raiding? Rolling a new alt? Considering taking the leap into roleplaying? Whatever your favorite way to play World of Warcraft, let us know in the comments what you're playing this weekend!
