Diablo III Blog on Class Changes Coming
Blizzard contacted a few fansites to inform us of a change coming with Patch 1.0.5. When we post the unofficial datamined changes for patch 1.0.5 they will appear as if a lot of classes have been nerfed. However Bashiok informs us that these nerfs will be out of context, (and are not nerfs but buffs.)

Those changes will be compensated in other ways so that the changes actually end up as a net-buff for players. They do plan to have a blog for these changes, but we may have this information datamined before this happens. Keep checking back to Diablofans for any news on 1.0.5!

PTR Download Button Active On Launcher
Don't freak out just yet, there is nothing to download at this time. However horadric.ru found that the button has now become active. This could simply be a mistake that it was flipped on too early, but we did get word that patch 1.1 (The pvp patch) will be on the PTR a few months back.

We’re going full steam ahead on the PvP patch, which will also include a number of game changes unrelated to PvP, and we look forward to sharing more about that as we get closer to opening up a PTR, where you’ll be able to test out our changes -- and enjoy mercilessly slaughtering one another in the PvP arena.

We’re aware that some players have reported difficulties noticing Legendary item drops, and we’re working on some solutions to make them much more apparent.

We do not anticipate that they will be hand-delivered by vibrantly-colored equines, however. (Blizz Tracker / Official Forums)
