Filed under: april fools, funLet's face it: April 1st and its tradition could as well be ignored if it wasn't for the fine and perfectly well done pranks Blizzard does for its games
In case you missed the 2010 and 2009 april fools:
At first it looks like Clippy rose from its bin to haunt us with Zen Brainfarts in Comic Sans, but at a second glance this idea could as well be turned into an actual addon that's
- either useful for beginners ('it looks like you are keyboard turning...')
- or gives raiding hints ('seems you've died in a fire because of boss mechanic xy')
Starcraft gets a console port with an own Kinect variant called Motion Overdrive!, and the Diablo developers present the Horadric Cube Mobile App which reassembles old apps into new ones.

Filed under: april fools, armory
I just visited the armory, and found out my character turned into a Tuskar
Walruses like tuna, good thing that both professions of all players are now fishing. If you check your achievements feed, everybody can now see that you ninja'd all your items and cheesed your achievements.
Not only that, but Blizzard presented the introduction of a long-awaited feature.
The new EPEEN (Equipment Potency EquivalencE Number) feature will render ilvl and Gearscore checks obsolete.
Also visit the Blizzard Store to order the new Battle.Net Neural Interface. Not only will you be able to steer your char with your brain waves, the immersion will be total, and you get a new ingame pet with it!
Once this neural link is formed, do not attempt to remove the Battle.net Neural Interface for any reason. Blizzard Entertainment is not liable for any temporary or permanent loss of brain function as a result of improper use of the Battle.net Neural Interface.
Tough and durable - Lasts for months, and replacement is theoretically possible.
Comes in pink, Gray and Black, but is already sold out, despite the price of $14'999.-
Good thing I preordered mine last week
If you can' afford the $15k neural interface, you may instead want to visit the Diablo III shop instead and pimp your car's GPS with the Deckard Cain GPS Voice Pack. Or but a Diablo III X-Treme Gamer Blanket or Body Pillow.

Like last year, Blizzard hasn't forgotten to add April Fools features for their upcoming games, such as Diablo III:
