As usual, the newest installment of The Diablo 3 Podcast is now available early for site Pals. Check this thread in the Pals’ Forum to get access, and if that’s not you but you want it to be, here’s where to support Diabloii.net. The podcast will go live for everyone early Tuesday morning, (hopefully) not long before Patch 2.3 goes playable on the PTR.
Patch 2.3 coming very soon to the PTR, so more analysis, including new and improved Item Set properties from datamining. Also T7-T10 scaling issues, shared LGems, and purist mode Hardcore? Featuring Aahz, N3rdwards, and Flux.
