Update: With the latest patch you don't have to rejoin chat every time you logout and back in, so join chat and be friendly. =D

Greetings fellow ANZ players,

We now have an officially(unofficial) ANZ Community ingame and I hope everyone will join so we can play and chat together.

I've put this guide together so that people can see some of the FAQ I'm getting and have a good guide for how to join in case you where unsure.

  • Q: Why a community instead of a clan?
  • A: Clans have a member cap of 120 but Communities are unlimited, plus you can only join 1 Clan but can join 5 Communities at the same time.

  • Q: Is there an ANZ clan I can join as well?
  • A: There is no 'ANZ' named clan, however several other players have taken it on themselves to create ANZ Clans for smaller 'nit' groups of players, seek one out and I'm sure they will be happy to have you.

  • Q: I've seen you in game with a <ANZ> Clan tag! You just said there wasn't one so why?
  • A: I admit to making an ANZ Clan, I did so to reserve the name so that people wouldn't get the Clan and Community confused and then miss out on joining up with a lot of ANZ people. Within 24 hours of release we already had over 120 members in the Community, so as you can see a Clan wouldn't be enough. I will be keeping the ANZ named Clan on my Best Friends(who doesn't play D3) account just to keep the name so people don't get confused.

  • Q: How do I join the Community?
  • A: Below I have done an in depth guide in joining the Community and joining chat.

  • Joining the Community

  • 1. Log in to Diablo 3 and look to the bottom right of your screen, you will see an icon with a chat bubble, this is the Clans & Communities tab.

    2. Finding a Community is down the bottom of this window, this is where most make the small mistake of looking at the top which is for Clans.

    3. Make sure you are set to English in the dropdown box, not English(SEA).

    4. Search for ANZ, the ANZ clan should show first, however if it doesn't you can click on Communities without joining them to display it's leader and officers, I am the Leader and I have selected a few trusted ANZ members as officers(more to come).

    5. Once you have hit Join you will have the ANZ community in your Clans and Communities window. Don't forget to join chat so you can discuss things with your fellow members.

    6. If you click on the ANZ Community you will bring up the Community Information window, this will display messages from officers in the News section(I'll be trying to post maint etc here). Unfortunately due to a database issue because we have over 100 members the Roster will only display Officers so you cannot see a full list of members.

    Currently there is no / command for Community chat, if you're talking in another channel and wish to talk in Community chat you will need to open the Clans and Communities window and click the Chat icon.

    I hope this helps and I look forward to seeing you all ingame in the Community, if you ever have any questions or issues feel free to post or message me ingame.

    Now I know how Narull felt when he talked about clans during the beta. ANZ community doesn't have the same vibe. It lacks the notifications when clan members go online, whenever someone picks up a legendary, scores an achievement and the auto chat.

    maybe I'm doing something wrong, I go to communities, click "English" not the british or sea one and search for ANZ, i get those 2 results?

    You're browsing for clans, not community which is at the base of the menu.

    Thanks for arranging the community Narull. Excellent work mate.

    Just got back home today after keeping tabs of the patch 2.0 rollout while on holidays and I must say that I'm quite surprised by how good the game feels despite the bugs on rollout. Can't wait for RoS to hit..
