Diablo 3 has received a wide variety of patches
since its release in May but now, starting with the update 1.0.5
, all of them will be tried out on a Public Test Realm by fans ahead of their official launch.
We already posted a list with some of the many changes included in the patch, based on the changelog for the Diablo 3 PTR, focusing on the two big additions: the Monster Power system, which allows players to modify the power of their enemies, and the Infernal Machine mechanic, which gives players access to even bigger challenges.
Now, Blizzard has revealed a new version of the patch 1.0.5 changelog, adding even more bug fixes to the already massive update.
Check out some of these changes below. Follower Bug Fixes
