Obvious vote is obvious… now that you’ve had a week to test out (or to complain and refuse to play while wearing your best “NO” face) the Diablo III v1.04 patch, what do you guys think? The patch brought buffs to dozens of character skills/runes, weakened monsters in many ways, increased drop rates, greatly improved Unique items, introduced the grind-tastic Paragon system, and much more.
