I have been trying to create a character (after login) and all of my attempts give me a reply of Error 300008 and Error 3006. Both saying Request timed out.

Is this just because the servers are currently experiencing high volume of requests? Or is there something more on my end to resolve first?

Note: I am already logged in.

  • Launch date means an uber amount of requests: expect to receive timeouts frequently. If you're logged in there are no problems on your end -- any Internet issues on your end would cause you to be automatically logged out.

Blizzard's twitter has linked to this article to try to work around it.

However, that all assumes the problems are local to you. Given this is the D3 launch, I think it's reasonable to assume that's not the case for 99% of us. In other words, just keep retrying unless you think you may have a legitimate network problem on your end.

  • Thank you, After waiting 30+ minutes, I was able to get in.
