Despite its rocky launch a few years ago, Diablo III has grown into a stellar title with a lot of promise and it took, once again, the reigns when it comes to being the best action packed RPG you can play. Diablo III: Reaper of Souls took the game one step forward with a wide range of interesting and appealing changes such as a new class and a new act.
But Blizzard seems to be committed when it comes to creating the best action RPG experience and it has released a new patch specifically for the Diablo III: Reaper of Souls and the Diablo III: Ultimate Evil edition versions.
This new update, named 2.1.2, is set to provide numerous fixes and additions to your Diablo III: Reaper of Souls experience, but another main reason for creating it was that the first Season is close to an end, as the experience will finish on February 3. There’s no word in regards to when the Season 2 will start, but we do know that the upcoming season is due soon.
Included in the patch 2.1.2 you can find a wide range of class, general as well as item specific changes. Some general class improvements include better prioritization of abilities that are using damage shields. Other changes have been made to the way pets behave, and each specific class has received some nerfs as well as numerous interesting skill modifications.
When it comes to achievements, this 2.1.2 patch has added the new Season 2 conquests, preparing the Diablo III: Reaper of Souls experience for its next season, which is neat. It’s important to know that the “Lord of Bells” isn’t required to complete the “You’re not the boss of Me” challenge. This is important news for the achievement hunters.
We find it important to note that even the monsters and their abilities have been tackled with in this patch, specifically the anarch, corrupted angel, inferno zombie, treasure goblins and punishers, among others.
On top of that, other notable changes include the nephalem and greater rift modifications that now bring you the unique ability of reviving at corpse with a spawn timer instead of reviving you instantly at the checkpoint. This is an amazing change that the developers made, since it removes the need for continual backtracking.
In regards to the end of the season, it’s important to note that the seasonal heroes will be converted to the hardcore and normal modes, and you will be able to carry all the blood shards, gold, items and so on in this rollover. The downside is that the achievements and leaderboards will not carry to the next season, although the player progress will remain visible inside the game.
This new Diablo III: Reaper of Souls patch is definitely an interesting one, and it makes the experience even better. If you have the game, then it should have been updated to the latest version, so go ahead and check it out right now!
