PTR Maintenance Tomorrow, PvP Reminder, Blue Posts

PTR 1.0.5 Update
For anyone who missed the blog post this morning there was a new update to PTR patch 1.0.5, which fixed a lot of bugs. Make sure to click this link in order to check what got fixed.

PTR Maintenance Tomorrow
A maintenance is scheduled for tomorrow October 11, most likely to apply the latest patch we mentioned earlier today.

[blizzquote author='Blizzard' blue='' battle='']The PTR will be down for maintenance starting tomorrow (October 11) at approximately 10:00 a.m. PDT. We anticipate it will be back online between 12:00 p.m. PDT and 3:00 p.m. PDT.

PvP Reminder
Vaeflare came on the forums to remind people that PvP will be a free feature that will come in future patches (likely 1.1) and that Blizzard likes giving players lots of free content through the patching method.

[blizzquote author='Blizzard' blue='' battle='']As we’ve stated previously, the PvP content we are currently working on will be included in a future patch at no additional cost, just like the content we provide in our ongoing patches (1.0.4, 1.0.5, etc.).

It shouldn’t be all that hard to believe, because we’ve never charged extra for our ongoing hotfixes, patches, or features in any of our Diablo titles (Diablo III included), and PvP is no exception. In recent months, we’ve added new and improved Legendaries, the Paragon system, and, coming in patch 1.0.5, the Monster Power system and the Infernal Machine event. We want to make Diablo the best possible game it can be, and we’re committed to making PvP be worthwhile and compelling as well.

[blizzquote author='Blizzard']Set Items on Followers
As it stands currently, in order to receive the benefits of set bonuses, the set items need to be equipped on your main character. Set items equipped on Followers will not contribute to set bonuses.

We’re aware that this isn’t ideal, and we’re looking into some possibilities that would make using set items on Followers a more appealing choice in the future. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
