Diablo 3 Patch 1.0.5 Notes Released
Filed under: DIABLO 3, PATCH, BLIZZARD
Blizzard's official Diablo 3 web site announces a PTR (Public Test Realm) for the popular action RPG. This, of course, coincides with the developer's next update - 1.0.5 patch.

Here are the 'General' improvements (read the full patch notes here):

  • Resplendent Chests will now operate similarly to Elite packs in Inferno difficulty:
    • When players open a Resplendent Chest, they will receive a reward based on how many Nephalem Valor stacks they have active at the time
    • Opening a Resplendent Chest will grant one stack of Nephalem Valor
  • Major in-game events will now grant one stack of Nephalem Valor when completed by a level 60 character in Inferno difficulty If completed in a multiplayer game, all eligible characters in the party will receive the buff regardless of whether they participated in the event or were close to the event's location
  • Major in-game events in Inferno difficulty that involve a special chest or Unique monster (ex: ) will now also drop additional loot for every stack of Nephalem Valor a player has active at the time of the event's completion
    • Several events have had Unique monsters added to them for this purpose
  • Experience Shrines can now appear in Inferno difficulty
  • Two new shrines have been added to all difficulty levels:
    • Empowered Shrine ' Increased resource regeneration and reduced cooldowns
    • Fleeting Shrine ' Increased movement speed and pickup radius

It's good that they keep tweaking their game. Gotta stay dedicated.

In better news: Torchlight 2 is out. I don't see any reason to play Diablo III anymore.

Meh. I gave up on Diablo 3 a while ago. The storyline isn't worth playing again. Once you beat it on normal, it's nothing but a grind-fest. Gets boring in a hurry. Not to mention that 'always online' bullshit. Can't count how many times my connection dropped when I was in a battle.

When Heart of Swarm comes out, Blizzard better let us play offline as a guest!

Finished it on inferno but still mess with it some for a drop. Although I think Torchlight 2 is a D3 killer...

with all these tweaks the game is certainly improved but i don't see the point of going back.

no incentive to really kill stuff when you can buy anything on the auction house.

If they do an expansion pack somewhere down the line I'll probably take another look.
