Diablo III Patch 1.0.4 Info Previewed

Announcements of upcoming announcements are... announced.

The Blizzard PR department is spinning up, to roll out about large amounts of information about Diablo III patch 1.0.4. Details have been posted about four developer blogs that will be published in the upcoming weeks, covering many of the changes in the upcoming patch:
  • System Changes
  • Legendary Item Improvements
  • Magic Find Update
  • Class Changes
Beyond this, the final patch notes will be published before the patch is released, which is rare for Blizzard's typical patch rollout. Jump past the break for the nitty-gritty details!

The Diablo III developers have been hard at work on some exciting new features and updates for the game. Many of you have asked for more details, and we're busily preparing several developer blogs filled with information on what's coming in patch 1.0.4. In the meantime, here's an overview of the information we're planning to share here on the Diablo III community site in the not-too-distant future.

Please keep in mind that this list isn't set in stone, but it should provide a useful preview of what we'll be revealing in the days ahead.

We're also planning to run some interviews and developer chats surrounding patch 1.0.4, and we’ll be sharing those on the Diablo III front page. Be on the lookout, as we'd love to get you involved in any live chats we host.
