Quote fromNo, I am well aware that Bashiok does not post here which is why I asked someone else to ask him. The blizzard forums are confusing with the CD keys and it keeps yelling at me and I don't care/have the time to worry about it.
I just thought it was a cool question if someone wanted to post it on Blizzards website.
I don't recall Blizzard doing anything such as Free item with pre-order, or an early-start program thing.
Blizzard will never give out actual items to make leveling easier etc. But what they will/currently do is something like they do for the World of Warcraft collectors editions and give out mini pets and other random thing that dosn't affect game play little things like that.
