    1.0.6 Official Patch Notes
    Patch 1.0.6 is here. The official patch notes round up everything there is from the users point. There were only two strings to be datamined. Both strings are nice additions to help reduce trade scams. Otherwise a very small patch.

    General
    • We will soon begin limited testing on minor updates to Battle.net's communication and login functionality. Patch 1.0.6 includes some of the data for this testing, but please note that the changes will not be visible to players or impact your play experience in any way. For more information, please see this blog post.
    Bug Fixes
    • Fixed an issue that allowed players to bypass the one-second trade timer when exchanging items via the Trade window
    • Fixed an issue that caused the same item to occasionally drop for players using Threatening Shout with the Grim Harvest rune

    Patch 1.0.7 in the Coming Weeks
    Don't let the small bug patch of 1.0.6 get you down. Patch 1.0.7 is coming, and it should have some goodies. As always keep checking back to diablofans, as we will post up any datamined goodies once the patch goes up in the coming weeks.

    Patch 1.0.7 is planned to be a larger patch than 1.0.6, and will contain much more than just bug fixes. Many of the changes we've discussed in these forums recently are currently scheduled for 1.0.7, and we are looking forward to sharing more details with you concerning it in the coming weeks. :)

    Any other information you're able to share? I'd imagine I'm not the only one that would like to know a little more about the upcoming patch(es), more detailed information, etc. For instance you say, "Many of the changes we've discussed in these forums recently..." - like which ones? Would be awesome to know. Keep up the great work. Cheers!
    We’re not quite to the point where we’re prepared to delve into the details surrounding patch 1.0.7 and what’s being included just yet. We’re still busy working behind the scenes on a variety of changes, and we want to ensure which changes will be making it into patch 1.0.7 before we formally announce anything.

    Hang in there, we have some good stuff on the way!

    "The Hunger"
    by Erik Sabol

    The sand was cool between his toes. Beads of sweat dotted his forehead beneath a heavy thatch of red-brown hair. They trickled down and ran over the swell of his cheeks.

    His pulse quickened. He shuffled closer—a stout, fleshy silhouette in the dim moonlight—and the sound went quiet. Rigley offered a quick glance over one shoulder. Lidra hadn't moved. Her face was peaceful in the fading firelight.

    He stepped into the shadow of the old wagon. The hiss returned, bled through the gaps in the warped, crooked planks, and the frame seemed to tremble.

    Rigley laid a shaky hand on the timber. He looked through a narrow slit between two boards, but inside the wagon was dark.

    Carefully he crept around the side, fork quivering in his hand, and peeked into the cabin. "Who's there?" he said, and something shifted among the inventory. He reeled back, utensil extended, eyeing the cargo in the shadows.

    The hiss intensified, then faded into a long, throaty groan. An alabaster jug rolled from the wagon and thudded to the sand. Sitting where it had been was Lidra's sack—a small, crudely woven bag tied off with twine. At least, that was what it had appeared to be when Lidra had first carried it into his wagon. But now, now the cloth was on fire with purple light. Rigley stepped nearer and saw that the light had taken the form of runes, ancient letters, which writhed around the sack as if they were serpents.

    Rigley took another step and tried to get a closer look. He was no expert in magical artifacts, but he knew that they could be of immense value if one spoke with the right people. The woman, Lidra, she must have been trying to fool Rigley into thinking this was just a mundane bag, for she had simply tossed it into the back of the wagon with the rest of her gear. What better way to hide a fortune? Rigley grinned at her cleverness... and at his own. Now to find out what jeweled treasure lay inside.




    "Theater Macabre: The Dark Exile"
    by James Wough

    "I saw glimpses of a war in the Hells. The great Prime Evils were taken aback by the brazenness of the Lessers. Demons fought each other, and pain and agony reigned. Cries of anguish! I could see the fury of warring beings beyond comprehension, staccato flashes of demonic beasts fighting in a pit of flame. It was hot. Oh, so hot. I felt as if my skin was burning. And then the heat washed away, and the images coalesced until I found myself in the chambers of the Lessers and the serenity of a moment free from warfare.

    "Andariel and Duriel were arguing; they wanted to break the pact with the other Lessers. I could hear their voices. 'What have we done?' Duriel asked in a trembling tenor. 'They will destroy us all. They will never stop until—'

    "Belial—I could see him—a spindly wraith with a jaw full of razor-sharp teeth, revolting yet powerful, had stepped into the cavern. 'How dare you question! How dare you deny yourselves victory! Long have the Primes lorded over us. Long have they thought themselves our betters. Diablo... Diablo will fall, as will the rest. Do not be swayed or led to fear by him. Do not, for each of you will reign. Each of you will share the power we will earn.' I could feel his lies. I knew that Belial spoke with his own interests in mind, that he had machinations beyond what he'd show his family.

    That doesn't have to be obvious? You could have a new patch contain less changes than its predecessor.

    "Many of the changes we've discussed in these forums recently are currently scheduled for 1.0.7"

    For those of us that stay away from the terrible place called battle.net forums, what are these changes exactly?
    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

    if a new patch contain less than this one then they need to stop calling it as Patch ... I was surprised with this one, but then I see the 'patch' notes ... useless

    lol did you see the patch notes for 1.0.6? Two tiny bug fixes, and a "limited testing" that won't even affect players (for now). It'd be hard to make a smaller patch than that.
