Diablo-3

Diablo 3 devs address balance changes in patch 2.6.1 Okay, it’s no secret I’ve been playing a lot of Diablo 3 lately. The most recent Season utterly grabbed my attention, and only Shadows of Argus managed to even slow me down. Even, so I’m closing in on Paragon 500 on my Seasonal Barbarian and greatly enjoying twirling my way through Greater Rifts. Still, I have noticed...

Diablo 3’s patch 2.6.1 PTR sees even more class changes The PTR for patch 2.6.1 has been rolling along for a while now, and there have been changes to drop rates and other adjustments throughout the testing.

Diablo 2.6.1 PTR update brings more changes to items, set bonuses, and Rifts Diablo 3 is chugging away on its patch 2.6.1 update, with the PTR in full swing. Blizzard recently released a list of new changes — no major rollbacks or deviations from what we’ve already seen, but some interesting progression in terms of what we’re going to be looking at. First up, the change to the...

Do you pay attention to Diablo’s story? I’ve been playing my Seasonal Hero in Diablo 3, trying to get the Seasonal Journey down. I noticed that the two new zones they added in patch 2.6 included a bit of weird story in the Temple of the Firstborn. When you get to Vidian (the bounty I had was to kill him) there’s a...

Diablo 3 is free to play on Xbox One this weekend If you’ve been nearly-but-not-quite swept up in all the recent Diablo 3 hype, Blizzard is certainly trying their hardest to change that. For the remainder of July (i.e., until Monday at 11:59 p.m. Pacific), Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls – Ultimate Evil Edition is free to play for anyone with an Xbox One and an Xbox...

The Queue: Barbarian

My Season 11 Barbarian has 3 levels to go to hit 70 and I just killed Malthael, so it’s Adventure Mode for now. I’m still using the Seismic Slam build — I know it’s not the best GR clearing build, but I’m not likely to do Greater Rifts any time soon, so I’m just plugging away at my own pace.

Let’s talk about Blizzard stuff.





Win a Diablo-themed prize pack through Blizzard’s latest contest Season 11 in Diablo 3 is finally upon us, and it’s the first Season since the release of the new Necromancer class.

Diablo patch 2.6.0a fixes Necromancer portraits, transmog bugs Diablo 3’s Patch 2.6.0a isn’t the big content-heavy patch that 2.6.0 itself was, but what it brings us is relief from some bugs, updates to things meant to be updated before now, and some cleaning-up of the dust left behind in the wake of a major content patch. In addition to fixes for the German...



Exploiters have earned a Diablo 3 suspension during double XP weekend If you remember a while back, the Diablo 3 team was forced to wipe the Era leaderboards due to a bug that managed to slip into the latest patch. As a result of this bug and the required leaderboard wipe, the Diablo 3 team set up a double XP weekend (starting today, July 14th at...

Diablo 3 Rise of the Necromancer and 2.6.0 patch notes It’s a joyous day for those who want to raise the dead, because the Necromancer has finally arrived in Diablo… for a price. Fortunately, it’s not a price to be paid in blood (unless you know a local blood bank that offers cash): the Necromancer DLC will set you back $14.99 in the Blizzard Store....

Are you excited for new Diablo zones? So in addition to the Rise of the Necromancer pack, we’re likely to get Diablo 3’s patch 2.6.0 tomorrow, and with that patch comes a whole lot more — among those are three new zones to explore and adventure in. In addition to the Shrouded Moors detailed in the video below, two other zones — the...

Diablo 3 Season 10 ends June 23, Necromancer may be on the way Season 10 of Diablo 3 will be coming to a close June 23, followed by an unusual delay before season 11. When the season ends, your seasonal characters, their gear, experience, paragon experience, blood shards, and just about everything else will roll over to your non-seasonal character roster. If you’ve yet to achieve your season...

Latest Diablo 3 beta patch adds more ways to break things, number tuning, and more Not long after we got to take a look at the new cinematic intros for the Necromancer, we’re being treated with a new patch for Diablo 3’s beta — which, by the way, is still offering increased experience and Blood Shard gains until tomorrow night. Most of the changes in today’s build are tweaks to...
