Rare Items Always Identified - Only PTR or for Live?

  • This may have been covered before but are Rare items (yellow) going to not need identifying in the Live game or are they just this way on the PTR for testing purposes?

    Kind of miss the excitement of identifying an unknown rare (not as epic as identifying an unknown legendary) but a good moment none the less.
  • When patch 2.0.1 arrives you won't need to identify rare items anymore, since they'll drop already identified and ready to equip. You'll still need to identify Legendary items, though, and that should preserve some of the excitement with discovering the details about potential upgrades. The Book of Cain will still be useful for situations where you have multiple Legendary items to identify, so we don't plan on removing it at this time.
