You'll receive the update automatically with Patch 2.0.1, arriving in the weeks leading up to the March 25 release of Reaper of Souls. If you want to upgrade your launcher in advance and save yourself a little time on patch day, just download Battle.net now!

Download the Battle.net App

Battle.net features single sign-on functionality that allows players to log in once to access Diablo III, World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, and the upcoming Heroes of the Storm, and lets you stay logged in for up to 30 days. Players can also install games directly through the app and keep them up-to-date automatically, as well as stay on top of the latest Blizzard news. For more information, check out the Battle.net web page.

Once Patch 2.0.1 goes live, the upgrade process will begin automatically the next time you start up the current launcher for Diablo III—or click here to download the app now and get ahead of the game.

More on the Legendary Drop Rates

Feedback on drop rates is still highly valued on the official forums. Go and give your opinions!

The overall drop rate of Legendaries has not been changed, and is thus the same as before. Granted, the drop rates on some specific Legendaries with really powerful abilities were lowered though, which was done because said Legendaries are now accessible through the Blood Shard vendor.
The drop rates that we currently have is probably not final and will most likely be changed until release so just relax and don't complain about things like this when we're still in beta
Complaints do not help much indeed, but constructive feedback does. The line betweeen complaints and constructive feedback is not always easy to identify though, but that is okay as long as the feedback is objective :-)

We are still testing and tuning the drop rates and the reward structure, so we are looking for feedback on this. To those of you who are concerned about the drop rates, could you tell us a little more about why you think the drop rates are not what they should be? Also, what would be a decent drop rate in your opinion?

The Boulder Barb Beta Build

Forum user TheWaldemar has put together a very well working build for the Barbarian, where the primary tool for destruction is the Ancient Spear/Boulder Toss. He has given a good explanation of the build in his topic and has also put out a nice video of it. So far the feedback from our Barb forums has been great!
