No offense, but one picture is shown 2 times, even in same size.

Are you not able to zoom in? You must click on the image a few times and then you should be able to zoom in and read it, it's caused by our forums software, sorry about that.

I meant in the journal itself, the picture with wizard near the fountain - one is to the bottom right of red DIABLO text, and second is just above the rating field.

      It's been quite a while since we heard anything from Diablo 4, as we wait for the third quarterly update which should be arriving by the end of the month. However, there has been some movement on the staff front, in addition to the recent recruitment post for a monetization expert. We have two new job postings to take a look at today, with Global Digital Marketing Manager and a Senior PR Manager positions being available.
      This may indicate a faster ramp up in the development of Diablo 4 (and, to a lesser extent, Diablo Immortal), as all of these positions are sales-related, so the infinite speculation over the exact year D4 is releasing in (and mild chatter about when Diablo Immortal is coming) can continue unabated!

      We have a few blue posts for the Diablo franchise, as community manager PezRadar has chimed in on two very high interest issues. Let's start with a possible delay for Diablo 3 Season 22, which should also be about a month and change away if recent season durations are any indication, but this one might take a little longer:
      D3 Season 22 (source)
      Tbh the s22 and q3 update is too clumped up. They need to spread the hyoe trains abit
      after all the silence you could clarify a bit more on both q3 and ptr notes tbh
      Quarterly Blog.
      PTR is still a bit further down.
      "A bit further down" is a pretty loose definition, but if the season is indeed scheduled to end in a month, and with the new PTR lasting 2 weeks + 1 additional week to implement the changes, it seems like we might get an extended Season 21. Putting aside the actual information shared, the very short responses are somewhat uncharacteristic for PezRadar, making the whole thing a little weird.
      We're also all still waiting for the third quarterly update for Diablo 4, which is due to arrive by the end of this month, as pointed out by official forum user Venaliter, and PezRadar confirmed this in another somewhat weird post:
      D4 Quarterly Update (source)
      Third quarter ends the end of September. Anywhere from now, to slightly past then.
      This is the expected. So nothing new there, the update is coming, probably around the end of this month (and you can check out the previous two here and here).

      Here's the Diablo intro cinematic upscaled from 320x156 to 8K with enhanced lightning effects and colorization.

      We have some more Diablols to share, as Carbot has made 3 new videos since the last time we checked in! Once more we get some really accurate and true depictions of the various scenarios tha happen in D2, from the high level player coming to a game an throwing out free loot and causing mayhem, some Blood Raven action as she faces off against a very fluffy druid, with a very authentic Amazon getting frustrated with the multiplayer loot system, and finally some very electrifying Rakanishu action.

      I always have the salvage item page open when I play so that I know if the legendary item I have found is valuable or not.  Each legendary on the salvage page shows a link to the build in which it is used.  Sometimes the link opens to the intro page of the build and sometimes it opens to the gear page which is the page I really want.  The gear page tells me which attributes are important on that item
      Could someone please change all the links on that page so that they go to the gear page always? 
      As always, thanks for the great website
