Important: Patch 1.0.6 Now Live

PvP Blog Soon
Jay Wilson has recently returned to posting on his Twitter account and has also given us some great thing to talk about - PvP. There will be a PvP blog soon, but not much other info is given. You can also check our datamining post from September where we managed to find some pretty awesome stuff, like banner rewards, PvP items and lots and lots of strings and accolades. Also this post containing a few pictures of an unfinished arena and this one containing lots of pictures of what appear to be already finished arenas. Finally this post includes the audio for the PvP vendors.





Diablo III Hotfixes -- November
A hotfix was deployed that removed the nasty bug where monsters spawned with a part of their health missing and also a fix for some issues involving the Blade Wings from the Heart of the Swarm Digital Deluxe addition.

    "a few weeks ago"...nice spin on 8+ weeks...plus Blizzard's version of "soon" is meaningless...Jay is trolling
  • #2 Zek
    "Very soon" is a reasonably definitive statement, i.e. probably this week or next. My guess is 1.1 PTR a couple weeks after that.

    Does anyone know how the PvP gear will be acquired? Will it be farmable? Will Blizzard sell the stuff?

    It won't be one shot if it's like it was back in 2010.

    The only thing we know(tentatively from datamined content) is that there is a PvP vendor that sells gear in exchange for PvP tokens. My guess is there will be no special PvP exclusive gear, or if there is PvE gear will still be usable. There might be some sort of stat flattening to make matches more fair though. We do know that low level characters will be upscaled to level 60 for PvP, so they must have some systems in place to make that reasonably fair.
