Diablo III PTR Updated

Blizzard offers an updated set of PTR patch notes for the upcoming version 1.07 update for Diablo III. There is one new achievement listed along with a number of bug fixes for the action/RPG sequel, including some with the Public Test Realm itself. Arguably most significant is the change so that players are considered "elites" within the game, which will impact certain item effects in PvP combat. Looking beyond the release of this new patch in the live version of the game, a forum post from a Community Manager says Blizzard is working to address player complaints that characters are merely the sum of their gear:

We know that (for many players) its much more rewarding to gear up from items that you find while playing normally than it is to necessarily go through Auction House, and were working to make improvements in that area. There are a lot of ways we could attempt to reach that goal, and choosing the best one(s) to go with is not always a fast process. I want to encourage you all to continue to post your thoughts on the subject and I promise we will keep reading and relaying them.

Yes, it's F2P, and one of the most generous F2P games I've seen. They're adamantly opposed to selling power in any form. Most things are just going to be cosmetics like different weapon effects, pets, graphical effects for your character, different skill effects. They also sell more character slots, but they give you 24 slots for free. They also sell more stash tabs, but they give you quite a lot for free.

There are some other things in the works for the shop like custom ladders where you can just invite your friends/guild.

Basically, you don't feel gimped if you don't want to pay anything. You'll have access to the full game.
