If you rolled a nine, deduct 500XP for cheating.

Only a few months remain between you, the reader, and Reaper of Souls, the upcoming and puzzlingly long-awaited first expansion for 2012′s Diablo 3. Roll a D6 to determine your course of action.
If you rolled a one or two, rejoice in the news that the expansion drops on March 25, and mentally put aside $49.95 for the retail version or $45.95 for the digital version.
If you rolled a three or four, dive into the depths of your wallet to summon $64.95, as that is the cost of the Digital Deluxe Edition. It comes with exclusive helm- and weapon-transmogrification recipes; a Spectral Hound minion; three additional character slots for new heroes; World of Warcraft in-game companion pet the Treasure Goblin; a set of StarCraft II Crusader-themed Battle.net portraits; and Malthael-themed decals.
If you rolled a five or six, marvel in delight at the physical Collector’s Edition, which will set you back $89.95 but comes with all of the in-game bonuses from the Digital Deluxe Edition, a full-colour hardcover art book, a behind-the-scenes Blu-ray/DVD two-disc set, and a mouse pad bearing the impenetrable visage of Malthael, the Angel of Death. Blizzard says supplies will be limited and encourages eager beavers to pre-order.
If you cheated and read all three paragraphs, consider yourself fully informed on this subject.
Don’t forget that you can opt-in for a chance at a slot in the Reaper of Souls beta.
