Buying Diablo 3 in a different region

I live in EU and my account is set in EU.

I’m going to be on during some days in NY, so I was thinking in buying the game there (US).

  • Why do some legendaries have stats beyond their definitions?
  • How does Thorns work?
  • Is there a way to keep my map visible while I walk around?
  • How do I increase my chances of finding the Liquid Rainbow, Gibbering Gemstone, and other Staff of Herding reagent drops?
  • Where do recipes drop in Diablo 3?
  • Where is Cryder's Outpost
  • What happens when I go back to EU and I put the key in my account? Can I download the EU Client? Or my key is linked to the US Client?

  • When can I get Eirena's conversations for the Secret of Ages achievement?
  • How long does dropped loot last?
  • What's the Expected Value of number of runs required for a hellfire ring?
  • What's the highest DPS Wizard rotation for a single-target fight?
  • What happens when you die?
  • Where do recipes drop in Diablo 3?

    Diablo 3 is cross-region. It’s the same as Diablo 2 and StarCraft 1.
    You select the region in-game and can create characters on that region, and change at any time (characters aren’t available cross-realm).
    It’s not like SC2 where you need 4 versions.

    So, whether you buy the US or EU version, it differs not.

    As an addendum to XSlicer’s post, there is one restriction you need to be concerned about when deciding which region to register your game in: The real-money auction house.

    While you can play on any region you want (each with its own set of characters, its own friend list, and its own gold auction house), you can only use the real-money auction house of the region in which you registered your game.
