He later transitioned to the Diablo III community team and changed his posting name to Bashiok, with his avatar being a Fallen Shaman. After the launch of Diablo III he returned to the WoW team and his former fel-tree avatar, but retained the name Bashiok. During his time on the WoW Community Team, they were awarded the “Best Community Management Team” at DragonCon 2012.[2]
