Patch 15 Unofficial Changes + Official Patch Notes

  • #83
    So they have. I wonder why that version of the Templar needed changing at all; didn't seem like he was overpowered.


    He wasn't overpowered, but it was obvious that after he became your follower, his damage went way down. It seemed stupid. He's just more consistent now. I'd like his damage output to be a little higher; but at least he's the same weaponless and with weapons (ie, useless).

    Some nice change in there. Gonna check how it works! :)

    hydra has shit vision range...d2 hydra was good because you could deal with flaw by covering the screen with em...higher dmg per shot just increases the chance that the next shot is too much overkill...would rather less dmg more hydras...i definitely want you to be right and me to be wrong though...too bad we dont get to play with it


    Well, seeing as we don't actually as you said get to use the hydra in the beta its hard to tell how good of a skill it will actually be. About the vision range I have no idea how it will work out although I'm confident that if its somehow broken that Blizzard (the company and not the skill ;)) will hopefully fix this really quickly.

    However seeing how much time they're spending into developing this game I think basically all skills will be viable in some way or another come release. I can see why you think the hydra in D2 was better and not having a limited amount would indeed be quite powerful if not overpowered in this case (if the other stats remained the same) :P

    When it comes to overkill I don't think this is much of a concern in Diablo 3. Well it should not be that big of a deal in nightmare and even less so in hell and inferno difficulties. If you look at hydra and how it would play out in the beta and like the first third of Act I in normal mode I suppose it'd not be as great but once it actually takes some time killing monsters in higher difficulties I could see the hydra being quite useful in some or hopefully even most situations :) (here's hoping I'm right about this) :D

    what is a "IGR player" ?


    I would like to know this as well...adding "playtime" sounds like a subscription to me...no like.


    Remember how they said certain regions would be given a subscription base system rather than paying for the game in its entirety?

    My guess is this is for all the third world gamers out there that have to use Internet cafes to play.


    Someone on incgamers said it is short for Internet Gaming Room

    • The monster affix "Thorns" has been renamed to "Reflects Damage"
    • Jondar Poison damage has been increased

    [...] As for the monster affix, it's just talking about the display under a mob's health bar, right? Not the item affix?


    I wondered about this too. I do not recall any monster affix called "Thorns". I don't even think there are any hidden abilities that monsters have to reflect damage. I hope that means it's a new affix we'll see in this patch.


    Well guys, this statement is clear and obvious. All they did is RENAME affix from "thorns" to "reflects damage" on MONSTERS (aka info what kind of affix that mob is). Items have nothing to do with this. You might have not seen any mob with this affix because they are just not available in the beta(but exists somewhere) and theres probably maaaany more affixes we never heard about that awaits us in retail version.
    I stand alone... and if they keep coming, I will never stop killing!

    Would it be possible putting those long threads in appropriated spoiler boxes so that I don't get a finger cramp scrolling down the main page? :P

    I think they re-formatted the only hard drive with a working copy of diablo on it.
  • #100
    It just makes me worried about live servers ... the patch team seems a little shaky. But maybe that's the way they treat beta. Who's betting on midnight connection issues on launch ;)
  • #101
    The launch of their last two patches (at least) have been debacles. Not a good indication, when launch is (relatively) close.

    maybe the hamster died?
    I can see what you see not. Vision milky, then eyes rot.
    When you turn, they will be gone. Whispering their hidden song.

    Then you see what cannot be. Shadows move where light should be.
    Out of darkness, out of mind. Cast down into the Halls of the Blind
