Diablo 3 Patch 1.0.2 Released

Blizzard has released Patch 1.0.2 for Diablo 3, which will download automatically the next time you log on to play.

Changes include a nerf to the Monk’s Serenity skill and a buff to Mantra of Healing, an attempt to repair the Achievement issues people have been experiencing, as well as several Auction House fixes. Further, players are now automatically dumped into the General Chat channel upon logging in. You may find yourself rapidly reaching for the “leave channel” button — right click on your chat box button to do so.

Here are the full patch notes, which, of course, exclude any potential stealth nerfs:

You may want to include the fact that this patch is causing all sorts of issues and that they just took the US server down. Again.
