Diablo III’s Patch 2.2.0 adds and improves items

hooray sorta

Health potions are one of the core elements of Diablo III, but they’re not actually interesting to stock up on. The game has thus removed them altogether; Legendary potions are unchanged, but you normally just have a bottomless health potion to heal you. The change is simple, straightforward, and as good a lead-in to a patch full of item changes and additions as any.

Legendary rings have been added to the game for players to find and incorporate, and several existing Legendary sets have been altered. The Barbarian, Wizard, and Demon Hunter also have access to new Legendary sets, and several items and Legendary Powers that have been altered across the game (these alterations are not retroactive except in the case of item sets, however). Players should peruse the full list of changes to get a sense of the scope; class abilities have been changed a bit, but the item changes may very well require a whole new approach to the game.

From what I’ve read, Blizz is not going to add controller support for PC. They’ve actually made design choices to tune D3 around using a KB&M vs a controller. There are 3rd part apps that let you map the PC controls. But, other people have reported that they’re not a perfect solution.
The only reason I bought D3 for console was for the controller support. After being bored to tears by the constant click-to-move, I found the controller playstyle to be quite refreshing.

I reinstalled D3 yesterday and started playing a lvl 43 barb I never lvl’d up, and I must say the game is really fun now, just on my way to 50 I found ~10 legendary items, all of them except one was an upgrade, and the last one was because it was a 1h weapon and I was using 2h at the time. 
The stats on legendary items was all for my class, and they had interesting additions to them, for example the belt i found, it makes my whirlwind barb throw out knives… Now THAT is sick!

They have really turned this game around.

Man took me an hour earlier cleaning out Season 2’s goodies and breaking them all down.
Ran a 39 GRift to unlock bloodshard space.  Hopefully it’s unlocked for Season 3 as well and is account wide not just for normal season that 500 limit sneaks up on you pretty fast.  Gonna be going with a Demon Hunter for this round, first one ever.  They’re just too good not to play one anymore.  The new looting thing is a huge boost.

Detton camelotcrusade … or you get really good at it.  That happens, too.  What can I say, I’m pro-improvement.  Games, porn, whatever.

My index finger thanks Blizzard for the new vacuum looting mechanics.

Ironically, the forums lead me to a petition for Blizz to release patch 2.1 on the 360 / PS3 ;)  *signed*

Dope_Danny It wasn’t a 10GB download, though. It was listed as 350MBs or so. I think the big deal was about the format change so it needed a lot allocated space for that.

camelotcrusade Once you know how porn is made, ti loses it’s magic, and just requires a lot of clean-up.

There are things better left unknown, and I consider this a healthy analogy that doesn’t indicate anything awry with my brain-thinky-stuff.
