Diablo® III

Wizards Meet & Greet

MVP - Diablo III
View profile
Other class forums are already doing this, so as per Vaeflare’s request, here’s where wizards can get together for a Meet & Greet session :)

Tell us about yourself!

I’m Jeff from New York. I currently do PR for small businesses and I used to be a fulltime bartender. I’m about 2.5 years removed from college so I’m actually quite young compared to many of the players here (or so it seems). I live by myself, but my ‘rents and kid brother stop through every weekend to hang.

Here’s a photo of me sitting on the edge of the Grand Canyon this past summer:

Edit: Just to add. The wizard wasn't actually the class I was gonna pick when the game first came out. In fact, buying D3 was just a spontaneous decision on my part (wasn't hyped, didn't care, but got bored and saw it on launch day—bought it). Checked in on a bunch of friends and tried to figure out who's gonna run what. I was gonna use the DH, but some of my friends already picked the class. Same goes for the monk, barb and WD. I was left with the wizard. The rest is history.

Your turn.

I'm Junger. I can't tell you what I do IRL otherwise, I might get terminated. I am old, with 2 boys and a wife from NJ that won't ever let me order pizza from Pizza Hut or Papa John's because she's a NJ Pizza snob.

NJ Pizza snob

didn't know NJ had a good pizza? I love Pizza Hut but I no longer like Papa John's. It used to be really good when I lived in Chicago around 1997. but ones here in NJ are not that good anymore.

Hey Thanks Jaetch!

I work for an engineering firm (that as of 10 mins ago - lol) said they were expanding. I have been doing Computer Drafting for almost 7 years as my FT job, and also make websites (close friends and family) as my own personal 2nd, along with the Blizzard fan site being a 3rd and being married...well...you can say I am busy \oo/. Enjoy my family and time with them - just try to get it all done.

Would it surprise anyone my name is Jennifer/Jen?

Here's my other name (it's on my other passport): 何嘉枚

If you are illiterate Chinese, the pinyin is He Jiamei. If you know nothing about Chinese naming, our family name comes first.

When I was a little girl, my family called me Mei-Mei. Nobody calls me that anymore.

Good amount of NY wiz's. I'm also from NY, but just northwest of the city. I'm 35, have two kids, and a great dane. I run a commercial real estate group for an institution just over the GWB in Jersey.

(ps, Junger/Yoda, there are still a few great jersey pizza places, but they seem to be well hidden)

Hi mum,
I'm Robert, I live in Central Europe, and I am Operation Expert in #1 Worldwide Digital Security and Mobile Communications company. Wherever on our world you live, I probably take care of applications on your SIM card, SIM card itself, and your MSISDN.

(Why I personally use Windows Phone, and not iPhone or Android, might be some hint from behind the scenes... :-D)

My hobbies are programming, design, composing music and football (soccer).

Here is cover of my latest album (2010):

@jen/Void - mine: "黃守龍" But not one really addresses me by Chinese except my unassimilated super Asian relatives.

Hi!

My name is mzy. My given name is too unusual to share here, but I'm Dutch, I'm 26 years old, and for a living I create software for ground traffic management on airports.

I started playing Diablo 3 relatively late, in December, when my brother wouldn't shut up about it. He quit a few months later, but I stuck around. Found the forums a while later, looking for some people to interact with. The EU forums are cobweb-infested, but this place is relatively lively. Sucks I can't play with you guys, though.

Ooo! My guess: you run the NSA surveillance program!
