Diablo III Patch Rolling Out

The Diablo III Forums have word that Blizzard's action/RPG is currently offline in North America for maintenance as the promised new version 1.04 patch is installed, bringing the new Paragon endgame to the action/RPG sequel (no word on whether this patch will fix the Server Status Page which could be helpful at times like if it worked properly). The post includes the full version 1.04 patch notes to check out while waiting for the game to come back online, which is currently slated for around 4:00 pm EDT today. The European servers are scheduled to start updating tonight and the Asian servers will be patched tomorrow, and this will prevent global play until they are all once again running the same version.

a) increase the $1 transaction fee rate via the RMAH, as more and more people will migrate there. even naysayers.

b) Blizzard is desperate seeing how over 85% of purchased copies stopped playing altogether as of 4 weeks ago.

c) appease the angry mob that is the entire BNET forum, while Blizzard gets to work right away on a much needed story re-write via Necromancer expansion, which for faith restoration, should be a free gift from Blizzard. If I were Mike, I wouldn't think twice about this.

but most of all, I am curious to do some epic damage with my 2H Barb, that already possesses a godly damage stat, now it's going up to 700% on rend, lol, reinstalling is worth it just to see that.

Why do you think more folks will migrate towards the RMAH? Sounds like more drops and better loot with negate this...

Do you have a valid source for B or just spouting off BS?

Also, the Bnet forum is seriously the WORST gaming community I have ever witnessed in my gaming life.

As far as the 2H go, I could be wrong but I was under the impression that only new drops will have the new stats, not current ones.


more drops, yes, better loot, marginally than before, but the elite set items and epic Lengendaries, only at RMAH, as were before. Blizzard can and do, what they want, the entire game is just designed this way.

I too was skeptical, I don't have a valid source, but I only speak for myself and my own gut instinct, that, I played Diablo 1 and 2, and really tried hard to want to love 3 the same way. Anyone with enough gaming time under their belts, have become disenchanted with Diablo3. Since I returned from vacation , computerless for 3 weeks, I really need to be dragged back onto my modern workstation to want to play D3 again, even with 1.04.

& to expand on Source, It's also common sense, a human trait that is severely lacking in today's day and age. Google and Facebook don't teach you that.

yes, new drops for new stats, but I have a current 2H that was worth 20 Million Gold in 1.03, that I snagged luckily? at a buy it now, on a newly listed item for 400K. +11 attack speed, +260 STR + 150% DMG, and already has 1100K Base Damage. It will work with the new and improved! 1.04 Rend, and Hammer of Ancients.

Curious to see what the new drops are, but I will judge only after a months time, as I play no more than 2 hours nightly, and am already in Act 3 inferno (just started, and wickedly hard)

took be 15 tries to finally get Belial down in Act2. I have only 4,000 elite kills and 150 hours of played time, and own 3 legendary items, and permabanned from D3 forums 6 weeks ago, for having stated that the next Blizzcon keynote presentation is going to be held behind bulletproof smoke mirrored glass, but I kid. I'm the type of guy that stops his car on the highway, to set free a trapped fly from my windshield wiper.
