Diablo 3 To Get Better Co-Op, Identify All
Patch 1.0.8 for Diablo 3 is shaping up to be quite a doozy. There’s the new itemization, of course, and also the new customization scheme. Quality of life features are the next addition to this information dump, and Blizzard has quite a few planned.
The game-changing rework in this patch is easily the buff to co-op. When playing with other players, you will now receive a 10 percent bonus to XP, gold, and magic find per each other player in the match. Got a full team of four? You will get a 30% bonus to all three stats, and this bonus will exceed the normal maximum (meaning you can get 330 percent magic/gold find). Enemies also scale to 50 percent tougher per player, rather than 70 percent tougher.
There are a few more features in the list to make the experience of playing Diablo 3 more responsive. Identify all is a particularly important one, given how loaded with rares a high-level player can get. Players will be able to tag their matches with labels like “questing”, which weights the matchmaking to find players looking for the same thing. Engaging an Elite or a Treasure Goblin will send a ping to all players in the match, informing them of your discovery. All in all, it’s shaping up to be a pretty decent patch. You can look at the full details over on the Diablo 3 blog.
