I got some footage recorded from my early look into the PTR last night before I started streaming. If you're interested in my Stream recording which consists of leveling from 1-10 using Monster Power 10 (an interesting watch, it's actually challenging) and some Infernal Machine farming, you can see the VOD here
This video is a look at the overall system changes taking place in Diablo 3 on patch 1.0.5. Also listed are some UI changes as well as some undocumented features of the patch.

guys, i got one question, if i enter solo in a game set at mp 5 for example, and one of my friends join in, will the life/dmg of mobs further increase because we are 2 in the party?
i had this question in mind over the past 2 days but i was waiting for someone else to put it around here, maybe i missed it, can anyone help pls?
Yes, monster scaling still happens for multiplayer, but it has been nerfed from what it was on Live (1.0.4). The Party Leader dictates the Monster Power you play under, so if your friend joins, it will not change the setting you made when you started.
