We’ve had nearly two days to explore the patch and much of the early player interest and conversation concerns the Diablo 3 Patch v1.07 crafting plans/designs, where to find them, and what to craft from them. We posted all the official details about plans, Demonic Essences, and more in the patch analysis article yesterday, so I’m not going to restate all of that here. There is some new info though, or at least clarification to stress.

The first round of “Ask the Dev” questions have just become available for your viewing pleasure. The transcript is rather long, so you can read more past the fold.

A rather large update from Lylirra this weekend for what essentially boils down to a name change. Perhaps anticipating the knicker-wringing that would follow they felt longer was better.

Blizzard made a big announcement about a bug fix and buff to the effect of Rubies in weapons, and it’s valuable info about Diablo 3 bugs.

Fans posted questions about the questions for upcoming Ask the Devs and got blue replies. The full thread gets redundant and nit picky due to people not reading the OP Blue announcement, so here are quotes of the core bits. Click to the blue source if you want to read every word, though it’s mostly people asking if the questions must be about v1.07, why the questions are about v1.07, if anyone knows what the questions are supposed to be about, etc.

In a move to answer the most burning questions from the community Blizzard are to hold monthly Diablo 3 Q&A sessions on the official forums.

Diablo 3 economy strategy time! With the new patch available this afternoon, I hopped on the PTR and tried some stuff out. I tested out my Monk with the new buffed skills, found Demonic Essences, bought the new armor Plans from Squirt, found another Plan from Ghom, crafted a few of the new items, and more.

The Diablo 3 patch v1.07 is live and playable on the PTR and the patch notes have been posted. Keep in mind that these may change and be added to during the testing period, before the patch goes live on the full realms. The notes are extensive and detail huge buffs to a number of Monk skills, the properties of the new level 15 Marquise gems, and more. Click through to read the full list, because long.

With the new, level 15 gem coming in the v1.07 patch, the prices for Diablo 3 gems have increased dramatically across the realms. I noticed last night when I went to sell a Star Topaz (just something I’d cubed up from idly picking up Flawless Topaz while doing runs) and was surprised when the suggested auction price was considerably higher than I remembered.
