Diablo III Cheats
PC | Submitted by GamesRadar StaffGet to Whimsyshire, Diablo III's cow level
Diablo III has its own secret level akin to the Secret Cow Level of Diablo II. It's called Whimsyshire, and it's a colorful, amazing place.
To get there, you need the plans (which drop from Izual in Act 4) and the following items:
Black Mushroom: Spawns in the Cathedral Level 1 in Act 1
Shinbone: Located in the fireplace in Leorics Manor in Act 1.
Liquid Rainbow: Located in the Mysterious Cave in the Mysterious chest in the Oasis in Act 2. Save the old man near it and he'll open it up for you.
Wirts Bell: Sold from one of the merchants in the city on Act 2.
Gibbering Gemstone: This item drops from Chiltara in the Caverns of Frost Act 3. If you get to the Ice Caverns just make a new game - the mob is random.

In old Tristram, the cows that were alive in the first game and corpses in the second game are now skeletons. They don't moo anymore.

Old Tristram Road
While traveling along Old Tristram Road you might come across a pile of corpses near a burning wagon. One of the bodies can be interacted with to reveal that it's Diablo II's Wariv, who comes with a journal entry.
Diablo III Hints
PC | Submitted by GamesRadar StaffTurn on Elective mode to allow for greater character customization
At a glance, Diablo III seems limited in terms of customization, but there's a fix. Go into the Gameplay section of the Options menu and click on Elective mode. It lets you map any spell you want to an open ability slot on your tool bar, no matter which category it falls into. They don't share cooldowns, either, so you can really go wild. It’s really useful for those who like to kill outside the lines.
PC | Submitted by GamesRadar StaffTurn on the Show Advanced Tooltips option
One of the greatest advantages is checking the “Show Advanced Tooltips” option. It will show you exactly how much damage your spells do and how each of them works. It replaces a general statement like “Haunts an enemy with a spirit,” to “Haunts an enemy with a spirit, dealing 575 percent weapon damage as Arcane over 12 seconds.” It is really helpful and gives you exactly the information you need.

If there's a room full of destructible stuff, destroy it! If you break it all quickly you can be given an experience reward.
PC | Submitted by GamesRadar StaffKill treasure goblins fast!
If you ever see a treasure goblin, kill it! Kill it as fast as you can! These little misfits will run around the stage dropping bits of gold as they go. They drop some nice blue items when they die, but if you wait too long they will summon a portal and disappear forever.
PC | Submitted by GamesRadar StaffSave some magical items for crafting
Crafting your own magical (or “blue”) items is a new addition to Diablo III. Early in the first act you will get the ability to break down blue items into their magical components and recombine those reagents into other magical items. So be sure to save all your blue items in Act I to break them down for crafting material.
This becomes a balancing act, however. If you break down too many items you won't have very much money. Also, if you spend too much money upgrading your crafter, you might not have the cash to pay them to make you the gear or expand your Stash.
So break down those blue items, just remember to sell them when you start hurting for gold.
PC | Submitted by GamesRadar StaffUse your Stash to mule items
Your Stash is now shared between all of your characters in Diablo III. Now you can use your stash to mule weapons between each character. The change is a bit of a double-edged sword: though it is now easier to get items to characters that need them most, the shared item bank will fill up more quickly. You will only start off with 14 slots to store all your extra loot between all characters. It cost 10,000 gold each time to add 14 slots to the stash. You can have up to 5 tabs of bank with 70 slots per tab totaling a max stash size of 350 slots. But gold will not be stashable since it is also a shared resource between all your characters. Hardcore heroes will also have a separate shared stash than non-hardcore characters.
PC | Submitted by GamesRadar StaffGrab every health orb you can while your potions are on cooldown
In Diablo II when you got low on health you could just chug health potions like a sixth-year frat boy at a high school kegger. Not any more. Now there is a cooldown timer dictating how many potions a warrior can drink. But not to worry, health orbs are the cool new way all the kids are using to refill their health bar. You will still need to drink potions for a quick boost of health. Just hit the "Q" key to drink one, so you don't have to use your cursor.
Enemies will now drop health orbs and all you have to do is walk by them and pick them up. You can even equip armor that extends the range at which you pick up health and gold. When you pick up a health orb it also heals your pets, followers and allies. So everyone on your party will be sharing in the revitalizing goodness.
