More Diablo III 1.04 Details

A post on the Diablo III Website has more on planned changes in the upcoming version 1.04 patch for Diablo III, outlining how they will change the Legendary items in Blizzard's action/RPG to help them better live up to that label. This includes the addition of new affixes and they go on to describe their hopes that this will introduce more build diversity to the game. They also explain the ill conceived planning that made legendaries "kind of crappy," and how they are looking to de-crappify them going forward. They also talk about how this will impact set items (which are also legendary items themselves), and offer this video showing how the artists have been working to make these items have cooler appearances.

Some classes require you to shop in the auction house as soon as nightmare to be able to continue. Unacceptable, and it apparently isn't planned to be changed.

? I have every class at Inferno or into Hell at this point, and your statement simply isn't true. Normal and Nightmare modes are pretty much roflstomp, faceroll, or your term of choice for ludicrously easy, with any gear you find. I haven't used the RMAH at all, and only used the GAH to buy some blacksmith plans(a huge mistake ) for like 20k. All my gear is found by myself or by my coop partners, and I'm up to Act 3 inferno on my barb, Act 2 Inferno on my WD and Monk.

To be fair, there were certainly some dry spells for my WD as he leveled up first, where he had woefully underpowered gear, but he still completed Normal and Nightmare with ease. Only Belial in Hell gave him any trouble at all, and I had to farm a bit to get some more hp, and drop my beloved pet spec.

This is a little off topic, and probably will be even less relevant when 1.04 is actually released, but it had to be said. GAH/RMAH are not required, just expect to do a little old fashioned farming.

*EDIT* some stats: roughly 300+ hours played across the 5 classes, 9 legendaries or legendary plans found, 1 set item. Many ilvl63 rares, some actually usable. One of the legendaries (a shield, Denial) was actually usable when I found it, the rest are all crap basically. Legendary buff and Blizzard buffing my favorite skill, Seismic Slam, will basically be awesome for me.
