With the release of Reaper of Souls just around the corner, the Diablo III Dev team has been hard at work getting the game systems revamped and ready for the new Crusader class and continued story in Act V. And we aren't talking just adding in another class icon to the UI and calling it a day, either. What we have been treated to in the latest patch is essentially a reworking of several of the games core systems, including the one that drives the majority of Diablo's game play: The Loot System. Only the foolish will deny that it is the "epic loot" that compels us to click the everloving snot out of things until they explode like overfilled blood and treasure piñatas.
Behold the official Blizzard video after the jump, where they break down what new changes patch 2.0.1 has brought to the world of Sanctuary. While you watch, be sure to be on the lookout for a sly nod to one of World of Warcraft's most famous legendary weapons. Not mentioned in the video: There is currently a 50% Experience boost buff that will vanish when the expansion drops - so if you want to get your D3 on, now is as good a time as any!
