Infernal Machine Demonic Organ Drop Rate Boosted

Plus a bug fix patch for the Ultimate Evil Edition on consoles

Diablo III - Idol of Terror
Recent updates for Diablo III provided small but important changes, for both the PC edition and the console Ultimate Evil Edition. The Infernal Machine event has become much more popular since the arrival of Diablo III PC Patch 2.1, since it can now create a Hellfire Amulet as well as the previous Hellfire Ring. A hotfix was applied to the Diablo III PC servers that boosts the drop rate of the Demonic Organ crafting materials that are used to make the Hellfire items. With the new change, the crafting materials are now a guaranteed drop at Torment VI! On the console Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition, a tiny bug fix patch rolled out to squash some annoying bugs.

Hotfix for the Infernal Machine
Obtaining a useful Hellfire Amulet involves farming up keys from Keywardens, killing the Ubers for demonic organs, and then hoping to get a worthwhile passive along with other stats. That's a lot of random chances, even for a game as based on randomness as Diablo III! The developers decided to make the final part of the process easier, by increasing the drop rate of the crafting materials in all Torment difficulties, up to a guaranteed drop at Torment VI. This is double the old maximum of 50% drop rate at Torment VI, before the hotfix.
The following hotfix is now live in all regions. There are no upcoming hotfixes to report at this time.



Ultimate Evil Edition Small Patch
The Ultimate Evil Edition on consoles is a little behind the PC version of the game in patches. The game will eventually be patched up to patch 2.1, on the two next-generation consoles of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. But first, a small patch rolled out to get rid of a handful of bugs. As noted in this blue post, patch 2.1 is still on the way, but this was just a small patch in the meantime.
As Halaa and Joseph have stated, today's console update addressed a few bugs. Although I don't have an ETA to share at this time as to when 2.1.0 will be released for next-gen, you can be sure we'll spread the word as soon as we can.

Here are the patch notes for the recent tiny patch. The Ultimate Evil Edition is still on version 1.0.3 on the Xbox 360 and PS3, and on version 2.0.9 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
  • Bonus Acts will now cycle daily.
  • Nephalem Glory description updated.
  • Belial will no longer become immune after using vortex abilities on his arms.
  • Massacre bonuses will be the same for all players in a local game.

We will have more details on the big patch 2.1 that will be arriving for the Ultimate Evil Edition, just as soon as it is available!
