Diablo III Hotfix Improves High-End Drops

Battle.net now offers a list of hotfixes for Diablo III dated today (thanks Chris). The new server-side update addresses some bugs and increases the rate of high-end item drops for Acts III and IV in Hell difficulty and the entirety of Inferno difficulty. Here are the new approximate drop rates:

Items

    • The new approximate drop rates are as follows:
      • Hell Act III and Act IV
        • iLvl 61: 9% to 13.9%
        • iLvl 62: 1.9% to 3.45%
        • iLvl 63: 0% (no change)
      • Inferno Act I
        • iLvl 61: 17.7% to 23.9%

        • iLvl 62: 12.4% to 18.6%
        • iLvl 63: 4.1% to 9.3%
      • Inferno Act III and Act IV
        • iLvl 61: 24.1% to 27.1%
        • iLvl 62: 16.1% to 21.7%
        • iLvl 63: 8.0% to 16.3%

Link please.

Sure, this is the Bashiok post on the Natalya Set bonus accident and how it caused them to start re-evaluating their direction in some things (balance, retroactive item changes, etc). I hope many more examples will follow and kudos to Blizzard for listening to the player feedback and having an open mind.

I love how 2 million LVL 60 Diablo3 players are jumping up and down for joy over this hotfix, but little do they know that the quality of those items are nerfed down, and will still require AH/RMAH to get the best items for play that Blizzard themselves , generate in there.

The entire item DB is known dude, there is nothing on the AH that can't drop aside from artisan items. Same is true of the actual item modifiers and properties. There isn't any grand conspiracy here, you can do a side by side comparison of the RMAH, gold AH and the actual drop DBs if you don't want to take my word for it.
