Is there any way to display the current latency or ping in the game?

I'm seeing some strange behaviour with my skills, sometimes they're not working at all and I'd like to verify that these problems are caused by lag as I suspect. It would also be useful to determine the amount of latency before dying to some elite mobs due to that latency.

    roll a four sided dice, multiply the result by 100.

There's a green/yellow/red vertical bar next to your mana/spirit globe. If you hover over it it will tell you exact latency value in milliseconds.

    Hmm, I completely overlooked that bar the whole time I've been playing now. May 18, 2012 at 9:49

    Took me some accidental luck to find it's even there and not a graphical eye-candy )

    on mine, green seems to mean 200-400

  • @horatio indeed, Blizzard's definition of 'good latency' appears to disagree with every gamer in the world. Green bar + rubber banding is awesome.
