I wanted to write this after couple of months after the launch.
However the bloody game simply couldn’t settle down and still is subject to major changes.
Its far from being settled down since Loot 2.0 and Paragon 2.0 will be patched before Reaper of Souls comes out (ie. before March).
But I have no choice but to write this late review now, as I speculate the new features to be patched not far from the release of RoS and it would be too late by then.
So, here we go.
Better late than nothing
Diablo III Review
The best ARPG?
Diablo 2’s legal but not spiritual successor.
Blizzard has announced a new patch for Diablo 3 Beta and has now applied the patch.
The change log can bee seen here
See the changes >>
However, there are some unmentioned minor changes, which are summerised below
1. Hardcore characters
Hardcore characters are now available after completing the campaign in Normal difficulty
hardcore characters have more benefits than normal ones, however their death is permament.
2. Low FX option
Low FX option has been added for those who does not have a strong PC to run the game smoothly.
3. In Game Clock
In-game clock has been added on the top of the minimap, allowing the users to check the time without having to go back to the desktop
4. New levelup icons for followers and Quest Complete Pop-up
A red notification appears on the top of the follower’s portrait when he level-ups, reminding you of the new skills available for him.
Small pop up appears on the bottom of the screen when you complete a quest, reminding you of the great achievement made.
5. Pages for artisans
From now on, gold is required to increase level of the artisans until level 4,
furthur increase requires Pages like on the picture.
That kinda summerises the minor unmentioned changes in the Beta Patch 10
There is also an issue that the game crashes when the user places his mouse on a specific item
Blizzard is aware of this issue, and hopefully it gets fixed in near future.
All these information were collected from
and gentle reminder that I never played the beta to check the changes, as I was not selected as the beta tester.
