Bashiok posted a quick update on the status of the long-awaited D2X:v1.13 patch.
Work commences on patch 1.13. We won’t be providing any information on when the patch will be available, except that we expect the PTR to be available “soon”. We will provide some amount of warning very, very shortly before the PTRs become available. Please keep in mind that any number of factors could delay the start of the PTR and ultimate release of the patch. Thanks for being patient, we’re getting close now.
PTR = Patch Test Realm. We’re going to get to try this one out before it goes live, and yes, they’re planning to introduce respecs (in some unknown form) into D2 with this patch.
