It’s time to get testing the upcoming Diablo 3 2.2.0 patch while you can.
Testing is now underway this morning for the latest Diablo 3 patch which will eventually be pushed to the live servers at some point in the future. This update brings quite a few changes including new and improved legendary items, a few class changes, tweaks and changes to Adventure Mode and Bounties, some monster behaviours tweaks, and also a few location changes.
This is also the first version of Diablo 3 to utilise Blizzard CASC file system with MPQs now becoming a thing of the past. This will allow Blizzard to deploy hotfixes easily and generally make updating and patching a lot easier in the future.
Speaking of hotfixes, the first for this PTR patch one has also just been pushed live and it’s an item fix.
- Oculus Ring
- This item’s legendary affix has been temporarily disabled due to performance issues (2/25)
- This item has temporarily been disabled from dropping (2/25)
The full 2.2.0 update notes are quite lengthy so you can read through all those right here.
