Diablo III: Reaper of Souls ANZ launch times

Aus/NZ General Discussion
The time is nearly upon us to defend the realm of Sanctuary once more. As any Crusader knows, preparation before battle is the key to success. While heroic adventurers hailing from Australia and New Zealand can purchase a copy of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls directly from www.diablo.com, they can also pick up the game at their favorite retailer on Tuesday, March 25.

For a handy reference, the Reaper of Souls game servers will go live at:

New Zealand Daylight Time: 5:00 PM
Australian Eastern Daylight Time: 3:00 PM
Australian Central Daylight Time: 2:30 PM
Australian Western Standard Time: 12:00 PM

So settle into a chair and pour yourself a flagon of mead before you set off on your journey to Westmarch.
Cool beans, I thought it was going to be 6pm AEDT. 3pm is good though!

Don't forget the collective of Australia and New Zealand, sometimes New Guinea as well, is Australasia.
2:00pm for us Queenslanders! Woot!
just a quick question , yes the servers go live at 3pm , but if i go down and pick up my physical copy at 9 am can i then go home and install it , and register the key and all that jazz before hand?
also , will i still be able to play the vanilla game (ie before expansion) until the ROS servers go live? or are all servers down due to weekly maintenance?
Thank for this reply! i asked about this in another thread
Yes you can install the game and have it ready to go for when the servers go live. You should also be able to play vanilla up to the launch time. But keep in mind there may be some maintenance at some stage around the launch period to ensure the best game play experience possible.
Whats the point of releasing on Tuesday when there's going to be maintenance ~6hrs later?
Awesome. I will be home at 5pm to either start playing straight away.. or maybe wait a little bit till error 37 issues go away. fingers crossed that expansion release goes better - good luck blizzard.
Am going to book 26th of March off from work now so i can play all night on Tuesday.

Looking forward to this!

Generally unless something goes wrong Blizzard do not have scheduled maintenance on launch Tuesdays. It happens this way for all there games.

The last few expansions for WoW and the last for SC2 didn't have scheduled maintenance, just a server reboot when the game went live.
3pm! bam!

the better half goes to Malaysia on monday night for a week so i get to thrash ROS all week :D

Can I still expect the wings of valor if i order on the 24th?

Do YOU think it's worth the extra $20 for 3 extra hero slots & transmog gear?
im still confused about the launch times, is it evry1 get to play at the same time or is it by region?

lately you guys been releasing by region time and for RoS im confused
