** Even after release, the game director quite the industry andany aspects were redesigned and tweaked. Conceptually, the game wasn't truly done being "developed" until ''Reaper of Souls'' introduced Loot 2.0 and closed the Auction House.

** The Male Barbarian was supposed to be the same guy from 2, but this [[http://forums.battle.net/thread.html?topicId=27508584306&postId=275061593826&sid=3000#0 idea was scrapped]] by Blizzard, possibly because if it was the same guy he'd be 30 years older, and they would have to explain why the game doesn't start him out at level 40+ and fully decked out with high level magical gear.
