We're in the process of sending out 275,000 Diablo III beta invites to our opt-in testers. As it’ll take us a while to notify all the lucky invitees, we recommend heading to your Battle.net Account Management page and seeing if you've received a Diablo III beta license. If you have, you're good to go! Download the beta client and use your Battle.net account and password to log in once it's installed.
While you're logged into your Account Management page, don't forget to create your BattleTag. You can choose this permanent account-wide nickname by clicking on the BattleTag "Create one now" link on the left side of your main Battle.net Account page. Choose your name wisely, as we currently only offer one free name change. A BattleTag is required to play Diablo III, so whether you get into beta or not you should pick one while you're there.
Keep in mind that with such a large amount of invites for our test hardware we fully expect a strong possibility of stress test issues, such as an inability to log in, disconnections, and potential lag/latency. We'll also be testing our queuing system ,which you may see when attempting to enter a game.
Thank you for your continued help, feedback, and patience as we approach the May 15 release.

Don't get too excited there isn't much to test in the D3 beta. Only a very small portion of act 1. There are other things like professions to try out too.
If interested here is a killshot of the skeleton king which is the last thing you can kill in the beta.
