Diablo III Patch Reduces Item Wear

Blizzard announces a new patch is now live for Diablo III in the Americas, updating their action/RPG sequel to version 1.0.3a. The new version addresses several bugs and also reduces the amount of "wear-and-tear" damage to items by 50% (not to be confused with the 10% item endurance death penalty).

If you're having trouble getting through Act II Hell without using the AH then the problem was not the game, it was you.


Like WoW starts at Level Cap, Diablo 3 starts at Inferno. Or used to.

That's some elitist braggart bs right there. "durrr-yup, da game starts at da end! That's how it's supposed to be...noob!"

Reminds me of that dude that beat hardcore inferno the other day and listening to his shit, you just know that guy lives alone. lol

This post gets my vote for most ironic of the year...


For a lot of people, WoW and D3 start at max level... Personally, I enjoy levelling, so that's a big part of either game for me... However, now that I've played D3 at 60, levelling (or more accurately, the collecting of phatty lewts) is less fun, because it's all going to be vended (or AH'd) at some point...

But the argument could be made for Inferno gear, even ilvl 63 stuff; It just may last longer.

Plus, there's the whole difficulty factor... I thought D3 scaled well (starting about mid nightmare, IIRC), and even Inferno Act I... Act II seemed extreme, but that was the point, so that's fine. Now that Inferno is nerfed, the difficulty curve evened out, and it's more challenging (and less stupid-hard/spiked). But the point is, Inferno is where 'the real game' starts for people that want the challenge... Or like to farm gear for ages, which admittedly, is more fun with a full stack of NV than in previous games (in the genre).

Anyhoo... I'm still enjoying it. My friends are still enjoying it. They haven't done much Inferno and considering how much they stand in the poo, I'm thinking they're going to have a hard time with it (when my OP Barbie isn't there).
