Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls pre-orders offer Hearthstone Expert Card Packs

Blizzard is crossing streams with its franchises, once again, when it comes to pre-orders. The publisher is offering Hearthstone Expert Card Packs in the latest pre-order incentive for Diablo III: Reaper of Souls.

Now that Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft has officially launched, Blizzard can now begin offering up certain new carrots as pre-order incentives for some of their other games. In this case, the publisher is making a last-minute push to get players into the upcoming Diablo 3 expansion, Reaper of Souls, by offering up Expert Card Packs for Hearthstone players.

Battle.net details the pre-order offer. Those that order the Reaper of Souls standard edition will receive one Expert Card Pack, while those that buy either the Digital Deluxe Edition or the Retail Collector's Edition will receive three Expert Card Packs. Blizzard makes sure to point out that a maximum of five Expert Card Packs can be redeemed on a single Battle.net account.

This latest incentive adds to the cosmetic Wings of Valor item for Diablo 3 and the unlockable Imperius, Archangel of Valor for Heroes of the Storm that was previously revealed last month.

Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls arrives on March 25 on PC. That means that this is the last weekend to level up your existing Diablo 3 character before the expansion arrives. Good thing Blizzard is offering double XP through Monday.

        Your free pack is waiting for you. Come play again, we're not all Legendary throwing, pay 2 winnners. At least, I'm not. (I stop myself from buying packs every paycheck.)

      wait, what do you mean "...it's your last weekend to level up your existing diablo 3 character"? What happens after the Reaper of Souls expansion launches? I've been playing for the past hour, and I don't really feel like continuing if it's just going to wipe or something on Tuesday.

        Ok, I could have been clearer, so I added "before the expansion arrives."

          The Paragon levels I've already earned are good though? That's what I meant by getting wiped on the 25th.

            Nothing is getting wiped. They've been giving a 50% bonus to XP gains all this month (100% for this weekend), and that's ending when the expansion is released. That's all.

        All your existing characters get converted to paid DLC.

        once ROS arrives you will only be able to play the new class, no other classes allowed

        In accordance with Blizzard lore, once RoS hits all of your existing characters go insane and turn into Diablo.

          haha. I love all these stupid replies. I just wasn't sure if the paragon levels were some kind of test for the new patched in system.
