Diablo III Hotfixes

The Diablo III Website has a list of hotfixes implemented over the past couple of days in Blizzard's MMORPG sequel. There is just one fix listed from yesterday, but there is a longer list of changes from the day before, but these carry a warning saying: "If you have not yet completed Diablo III on Normal, some hotfixes described in this list may include spoilers."

We're having some fun with the game, but primarily because we are playing cooperatively. My Barbarian is relatively boring to play whereas her witch doctor is entertaining.

Overall, loot seems really broken. I rarely, rarely get an upgrade from my own drops, but I get an excessively large number of demon hunter and wizard drops. Pretty much any upgrades from direct looting come from my wife's witch doctor.

Meanwhile, my charactr is level 29 and it is not uncommon for my drops to get in the level 15-25 range. Then I made the mistake of looking at the auction house - for as low a range as 500g-1000g, I can get at-level yellows with stats that favor my build. It sucks to search through, but it is the way to go. Which ties back into my limited sense of fun - I am playing a loot treasure hunt game where I nearly never get anything useful, but then I go to an AH which just makes my charactr a god.

I realize the graphics will likely hold up longer due to the more cartoon-inspired design, but the areas have seemed relatively flat and boring, at least through the first third or so of act three. Also, can the crafting system possibly be crappier? Really, in three levels, I can gain access to something that is worse than what I am currently wearing? And that is presuming I even get a combination of stats that favors my class? I cannot even level up the gemcrafter until I play through again?

I am definitely getting some enjoyment out of the game, but I think I will be hard pressed to find a reason to play it again.
Not bad, but not great. Too safe in some ways with flawed loot.
