1.0.4 Official Patch Note Additions

More details about changes that happened in the patch.

Diablo III Patch 1.0.4
The recent patch included a ton of changes, so many that they didn't all make it into the official patch notes that Blizzard put up. They're back with a list of more additions and tweaks that went in with the patch, giving info on some of the undocumented changes that we listed earlier.

"Look! More hidden footprints!"

We recently added some new information to the patch notes for 1.0.4. Please note that everything documented below went live yesterday with the patch, but was not included in the original version of the patch notes.

In the spirit of transparency, I've called out each of those additions below. If a line already existed in the patch notes, but had new information added to it, I've identified that new information with italics.
