Diablo 3 Patch 1.0.5 Deploys Tomorrow

According to an official forum post, tomorrow will see the release of Diablo 3′s patch 1.0.5. Maintenance — in other words, server downtime — will begin at 3:00 a.m. PDT and will conclude by approximately 1:00 p.m. PDT.

The biggest changes the patch will bring are two new systems: “Monster Power,” which allows you to increase the difficulty of the monsters you face in a manner similar to Diablo 2′s “players 8″ command, as well as “The Infernal Machine,” an end-game event similar to Diablo 2′s “Uber Tristram” that has you battle several beefed-up bosses at once.

While none can argue that these changes are a step in the right direction, have you already given up on Diablo 3? Will the eventual PvP patch have a chance of bringing you back?

Five months after release and there’s still no PVP? On the one hand, I wasn’t interested in PVP anyway, and at any rate I quit halfway through Hell difficulty when I got sick of never finding upgrades outside the AH. On the other hand, that’s quite the delay for a major game feature. Has Blizzard said anything about the time-frame for PVP?

I quit 6 days after launch. Had reached max level and was roadblocked in act 2 inferno just like everyone else. Was frustrating, not fun.

Yes I will definitely re-install to experience PvP if and when that ever happens. And I will quit it right away if it turns out that better gear yields an advantage in PvP. Player skill and team coordination should matter and nothing else.

This update introduces monster power levels which is a difficulty meter with 1 being easy and 10 being the hardest setting, Pre patch inferno has been ranked around monster power level 3 so if you where stuck in act 2 you should be able to finish all of inferno now.

I gave up on Diablo 3 in the first month, check on patches and updates notes and with the changes made, I still do not care to come back to D3.
