SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,658MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

The Diablo III site has been updated with the news that a public test realm for the game will be forthcoming and that interested players can check out v1.05 before it hits live servers.


Patch 1.0.5 will soon be available for testing on the PTR. Once the PTR is up and ready, we'll enable posting in this forum and the PTR Bug Report forum so you can share your feedback and report any issues you may experience while playing. 

In the meantime, be sure to check out the patch 1.0.5 PTR patch notes and the information below to find out how to set up your PTR account.

    The PTR patch notes actually look like an improvement to the game.  

     

    Guess JW must have went on vacation while the rest of the dev team worked on this patch, hah.

    These patch notes look pretty good.  Especially that monster tweaker.  Now if only they could get rid of the Auction House entirely, and make the loot drops appropriate it would be able to compete with Torchlight 2.

    This patch looks amazing. And it is massive!! Dropped just when I started playing tl2. Coincidence? Oh well I will probably go back to d3 after finishing tl2.

    Yea, I plan on doing the same thing.. But man is TL2 awesome.. The pacing, map sizes, skills etc and yea there looting drops is much more interesting.. I could be lv 13 and use a level 20 item, that's cool..

    All these changes to D3 is lining up for the xpac to be much better than the original, which is similar to what happen in D2..

    I am quite happy that there are quite a few ARPGs coming out. D3, TL2 and BL2. This is my favourite game genre and it has been severely lacking in the last few years. Now we are spoilt for choice with 3 very good ARPGs. I will probably play D3 for the PvP and for the item hunting thrills whereas I will play TL2 for the hopefully crazy good mods. Runic released the editor, so we should have a LOT of mods.

    Don't forget about Path of Exile.  IMO it's the spiritual successor to D2. =)
