Patch 1.0.5 Sneak Peek
Posted September 13th, 2012 at 2:01pm by AstrayA quick look into 1.0.5 was posted on the official website this morning, providing some insight into what players can expect in the upcoming patch. Incoming damage is being reduced across the board while defensive skills are being changed (I'm going to go out on a limb and say they'll be nerfed a bit) to promote build diversity by making defensive skills less mandatory.
They'll also be adding an option for players to toggle monster difficulty, similar to the "Players 8" command in Diablo 2. Lastly, but most interestingly they're implementing a new mechanic Diablo 2 players are familiar with, a way to fight "uber" versions of the bosses.
More details will be fleshed out in the coming days when the blogs are posted. We'll have the unofficial datamined changes up as soon as the patch is on their servers so keep an eye out for that.
