Former World of Warcraft and Diablo Developer Travis Day Has Passed Away
Former Blizzard developer Travis Day passed away yesterday. Also known as Indalamar, Travis is remembered as a legendary figure among Warriors, responsible for the evolution of the classes' early development, which helped start his 13-year career working on World of Warcraft, Diablo III, StarCraft, and more. He was 41 years old.

This and similar work in theorycrafting helped land him a job at Blizzard Entertainment in 2005, alongside his brother Morgan Day, who now serves as associate game director. In more than 13 years at Blizzard, Travis spent time on every major franchise, including every World of Warcraft expansion through Legion and Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, where he was honored by items such as
