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 drop rates for high-end items (items level 61-63) have been increased for Acts III and IV of Hell difficulty and Acts I IV of Inferno difficulty:
    • 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: 7.9% to 12.6%
        • iLvl 63: 2.0% to 4.8%
      • Inferno Act II
        • iLvl 61: 18.6% to 23.3%
        • 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%

Bosses

  • Bosses are now guaranteed to drop at least 1 Rare item for players with 4 stacks of Nephalem Valor and at least 2 Rare items for players with 5 stacks of Nephalem Valor

I appreciate the suggestion... I've considered putting some range in my build (maybe even spear with 'rage flip'), but I'm hesitant to put stuff in a build I'm really not going to want around after the one fight...

Your build seems to have all damage passives, and I'm not sure I can cope without some bonus armor/reduced damage.. : )

Well, your mileage may vary, but I literally do not have the gear to tank Inferno, on any character(except possibly my Monk who is still leveling up). I can get like 9000 Armor, somewhat crappy resists(300-400), and all the Barb defensive passives, but I still get killed in 2-3 hits. Damage seems more viable to me, until I get some more gear. I have used the Spear a bit, it's pretty good actually, but it ties you into using Rage Flip and No Escape. All of the other spears just bring enemies you are trying to avoid right into melee range...

Still, Spear is somewhat viable, and I'll probably go back to it once I get a better two hander, to make those Spear throws outright kill white trash/seriously damage rares/elites.



*Note: White Trash in this instance refers to non-rare/elite monsters in Diablo 3.
