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).

All in all the game is progressing in a good direction.

Have to completely disagree, I've quit after the fiasco that was patch 1.03.

They increased the feeling the game is like being at work, with grinding out less 'take home' gold due to excessive repair costs from wear and tear from mob killing. Pre-1.03, I might have had one drop that was better than what was on the AH. Then patch 1.03 lowered the drop rate of rare items as well, making it more likely you have to go to the AH for gear.

And with the RMAH opening, good gear started to shift over there. So pay-to-win for the RMAH and grind ever devaluing gold for the gold AH became the way Blizzard wanted us to play.

No thanks. I'm sure the player base is dropping like flies, and Diablo 4 is going to be a tough sell.

I got my 100+ hours out of Diablo 3 (stopped as a Barbarian on Inferno Act 3), but if I was to do it over again...I'd wait for a huge price discount on Diablo 3 since it has zero longevity.

I understand the bad feelings I really do, the DH and Barbarian really got hit the worst, but hey here is a patch which will lower the wear and tear costs and yet the high death penalty will remain (as it should be). In all other respects patch 1.03 is an improvement over what went before. The drop rates from champion and elite packs are higher than ever (I switch to MF gear and regularly get 3-4 yellows per elite pack)

I just dont get the boohooing over gold though. Thats the most fucked up subjective argument ever. So people were okay with items costing over 100Milion Gold??? Really? Gold was becoming so worthless because all the gold sinks in the game were shitty, and now that there is a valid and good gold sink people bitch yet again.

What a load of shit. Before 1.03 I knew that there was no hope for me to use the AH to buy a better bow, prices were inflating way faster than I could ever farm gold or loot, and now that they fixed this what? Boohoo some more? Fuck that.

How can you even defend this piece of " GOT YOU haha") crap! just look at what they sold to the gamers , how it all went down the BIIG hype maschine to get people to buy it , the failed try to hide the only reason they made this betacrap the noreply attitude they showend the eu forums the "do it your self" peps had to FIND out how to get the game going from other sites than blizzies
If this crap had been in beta still np with all the " Going in the right direction shit" but it was not sold as a beta nono full price full intended "low in stock" games so that they would get alot of att
The hole greasy way they went with this piece of crap just showed what they have become. " The prime evil them self"

Greedy bastards
