Diablo 3 Patch 1.0.5 Notes Released

There’s a mess of changes in the pipe for Diablo 3, with the upcoming patch 1.0.5 hitting the public test realm.

You can read the full patch notes right here; it’s an extensive list. Here are a few quick hits:

  • Resplendent Chests will now operate similarly to Elite packs in Inferno difficulty:
    When players open a Resplendent Chest, they will receive a reward based on how many Nephalem Valor stacks they have active at the time
    Opening a Resplendent Chest will grant one stack of Nephalem Valor
  • Major in-game events will now grant one stack of Nephalem Valor when completed by a level 60 character in Inferno difficulty

    If completed in a multiplayer game, all eligible characters in the party will receive the buff regardless of whether they participated in the event or were close to the event’s location

  • Major in-game events in Inferno difficulty that involve a special chest or Unique monster (ex: ) will now also drop additional loot for every stack of Nephalem Valor a player has active at the time of the event’s completion
    Several events have had Unique monsters added to them for this purpose
  • Experience Shrines can now appear in Inferno difficulty
  • Two new shrines have been added to all difficulty levels:
    Empowered Shrine – Increased resource regeneration and reduced cooldowns
    Fleeting Shrine – Increased movement speed and pickup radius
  • Followers, pets, and summoned creatures will no longer attack enemies that are in an idle state unless the player is within 10 yards of the enemy
  • The reduction of snare effects against Elite monsters has been reduced (in the player’s favor):
    Normal: 20% to 0%
    Nightmare: 30% to 15%
    Hell: 40% to 25%
    Inferno: 40% to 25%

We also know there will be a new level 60 event called The Infernal Machine and a new “Monster Power” ability that allows you to adjust the challenge monsters give you on each difficulty tier.

Nothing can fix this abomination which they called Diablo 3, this isn’t even a Diablo game.

I want a new D2 patch, since that is what I’m currently playing.

Too few too late…

I’m totally into Torchlight 2 now, waiting for XCOM: Enemy Unknown and still spending some time playing Borderland, while wondering if I should pay full price for Borderland 2 or wait for a discount or a future bundle with all DLCs (and bugs found and fixed)…

You lost your chance Blizz, no time for your messy D3 anymore…
