The time has come, well almost, for what will hopefully be a population re-builder for blizzard’s Diablo 3 and that is Patch 1.0.4!
Yes, I am speaking of patch 1.0.4, which lowers difficultly, improves group play, and most importantly, gives legendaries some real stats, and unique stats at that!
They have improved just about all of the crappy legendaries, and left a few untouched, for example helm of command. Many of the items now have visual stats, and monster affixes, like fire chains, or a percent to a certain skill damage to make niche builds more common.
There will also be new sets, names, and many items in sets and legendaries are going to ilvl 63 from 61 or 62. A big weapon change will also be that ilvl 61 & 62 weapons can roll ilvl 63 dps, but just not as many stats as the pure ilvl63s.
This patch will hopefully revive the game for many people, myself included, and even most of the top hardcore players have fallen off out of boredom as of late. Let’s hope this can be a great patch with much more to come in the future, because I want to love it I do, make me love it blizzard!
