How do you upgrade Legendary Gems? Take a look: 1. Go on a Greater Rift run as usual and have the gems with you along with the materials needed. Take note that as of the moment, the mats and resources for upgrading Legendary gems have not been finalized. Since you can’t access your inventory inside the Rift, it’s best you have the requirements and the gems with you.
The 2.1.0 update will herald the launch of the game's first Season. In case you were wondering when Diablo III’s first new “Season” is starting, Blizzard community manager Vaneras announced that it’ll begin with the release of the upcoming 2.1.0 title update for the game and its expansion pack, Reaper of Souls.
Diablo 3 quality assurance Tsarnis posts one list of known issue for current 2.1.0 build on the official forum. Here is the original post: "Hello everyone, and welcome to the Patch 2.1.0 Public Test Realm! Below you will find the Known Issues list for our current 2.1.0 build. Please do not report bugs that you see on this list, as we already know about them, and help out other players reporting bugs by referring them to this list.
Health potions are a poor gameplay mechanic in Diablo 3, and players want that to change. Health potions in Diablo III are a hassle. They drop often and fill up your inventory unnecessarily. The newly added bottomless health potions—legendary items in Reaper of Souls—are much better, however because you still automatically pick up regular health potions, the hassle still exists.
Here’s the full list of the Seasonal Legendaries, which as the name suggests, can only be found by ladder characters. The properties (and names, obviously) are subject to change during further PTR testing.
Aside from the Seasonal Legendary Items, most of the existing skills, items and game mechanics have been changed as well. Here are the most notable tweaks on the Diablo 3 RoS PTR: Nephalem Rifts The cost to open a Nephalem Rift has been reduced from 5 Rift Fragments (total) to 1 Rift Fragment (per player) Each player must pay the 1 Rift Fragment cost in order to enter a Nephalem Rift
A lot of game mechanics, items and weaknesses are simply accepted as the way things are on Diablo 3 RoS. Just like how some pets can hit harder than a tank, how the RNG sometimes screws you over or how 2-handed weapons aren’t viable except for Crusaders. Crusaders’ Heavenly Strength skill that allows them to wield two-handed weapons in only one hand, freeing one of their hands up for a shield or another sword, axe or mace. Suffice to say, it’s just been accepted that Crusaders can wield two Furnaces easily.
Since the Blizzard devs have recently boosted 2H weapon damage on the PTR to see if the additional damage can change a lot of builds. We’d like to provide you with a a list of the weapons you should consider using the new mechanic. With the recent changes, the devs are hoping that the damage and skill selections can be enough of a reason for players to change up.
Aside from the great gold rewards from Diablo 3 RoS bounties, there are some awesome Legendary Items found in Horadric Caches. One of these is the Ring of Royal Grandeur that reduces by 1 the number of items you need in a set to activate the set bonus. Another awesome item is the Pauldrons of the Skeleton King, which acts like a monk’s Near-death Experience passive. When you die, you can proc back to 25% life and instantly make your enemies flee.
The Diablo 3 designer John Yang made a further explanation on the official forum about the adjustment of 2-Handed weapons. He responds the questions why the 2-Handed Crossbows/Bow are not changed, and why they don’t add some extra stat rolls and sockets to the 2-Handed weapons. And the main reason is to avoid more critical hit damage. Here is the original post:
Diablo 3’s Public Test Realm Patch 2.1.0 has released, bringing with it a batch of changes. The patch brings four major additions to it: Seasons are optional, but are a great way to break up gameplay.
