In this episode, we are back up to full strength with our 4th Musketeer rejoining us after his massive household move. After catching up with Lanntonio we get down to business by discussing what we’ve been up to in-game: Lanntonio managed to squeeze some game-time in at his parents, Nevik is dropping meteors and loving MP7, Breja has been massively busy with work but managed to sneak in a tiny bit of time in with his demon hunter, and Jen triumphantly hit level 60 with her barbarian and is now in Inferno!

Links for you to Visit:
* Our dear friend, Jaetch, finalized his labor of love the Archon Wizard guide. It weighs in at nearly 90 minutes of comprehensive details on how to build, gear, and play the Archon wizard. It is well worth your time to check it out if you’ve been toying with creating one.
* The fine folks over at Penny Arcade and PVP Online recently sat down and played some Diablo III on the Playstation 3 and recorded it for prosperity! The entire thing clocks in over 2 hours, but you can check out the highlights below.
* Flux over at Diablo.IncGamers started up a research project on magic find and legendary item drops. Check out the compilation results of his crowd-sourced research to see if it falls in line with your own experiences.
* Have you acquired enough gear to speed run MP10 Ubers? No? Fret not, neither have we (nor will we likely ever). However, these folks have and managed to defeat all SIX Uber bosses in under 57 seconds. Crazy-sauce.
* In case that previous video soured your mood let this hilarious animation back from the days of Diablo II brighten your day. Make sure to turn on the close captioning for a rough translation of the Korean being spoken in the video.
