Diablo III is often referred to as the single-player alternative to a massively-multiplayer online role-playing game, a moniker that truly comes into play when the game receives one of its many regular, free updates. The most recent patch, one that upgrades the game to Version 1.0.3, includes a variety of adjustments and fixes that effect users of both high and low levels.
According to IGN, the main fix coming to the game’s earliest levels will be the reduced cost of upgrading the Blacksmith and Jeweler as well as a lessened price for their respective forms of crafting; everyone looking to build equipment, from level 1 to level 59, will benefit from this reduction in expense.
On the other end of the spectrum, Blizzard has made a variety of adjustments to make the game’s Inferno mode slightly less intimidating for those that have reached its unfriendly gates. In Version 1.0.3, items belonging to the game’s highest ranking, level 63, now have a chance of dropping in Act I on its Inferno setting. The road to the game’s final encounter on its highest difficulty will also become easier in that the damage output of enemies in Act II, III, and IV of Inferno mode has been reduced.
Like with any regular patch, there are a variety of fixes that greatly alter the landscape of Diablo III that range from an entirely new set of armor to buffs to the game’s many boss enemies. For a full listing of the alterations made by Blizzard, you can find the Version 1.0.3 patch notes on Battle.net.
