Diablo III‘s next major patch is a quality-of-life patch, meaning that it’s not going to come with a huge influx of new content. If you’re tired of seeing the exact same rift layouts every single time you jump into a rift, though, it’s a very good thing. The patch will include new tilesets and new layouts both, so you’ll be finding something new to explore instead of familiar and worn-out places.
And what awaits you for exploring? New armor, for one. Three new endgame armor sets are being added to the game with the patch, along with 15 new Legendary powers. You’ll also have new bounties, new goblins to chase, and a new cosmetics window for all the pretty toys that don’t affect gameplay. Along with the usual variety of bugfixes, it’s not going to be a patch replete with new content, but it should make playing through familiar content more enjoyable.[Source: First Look: Patch 2.2.0]
