After months of waiting, Diablo 3 RoS Patch 2.2 has finally been released in the Americas server! Return to Sanctuary to check out all the new Treasure goblins, Legendary gear, gems and potions that the patch has in store for players.
Let?s take a look at the most significant changes for all players and what they imply:
Three new treasure goblins
While these goblins don?t drop additional or special loot compared to other pygmies, they have new mechanics. One of them brings in a mob, the other splits into smaller goblins and the other drop enormous amounts of gold (even more than what they usually drop). The three new goblins can only be foundin Bounties and Normal Rifts.
Increase your blood shard cap by pushing your best in Solo Greater Rifts
For some reason, Diablo 3 RoS? developers don?t want to just give us a higher blood shard cap. Apparently, they want us to work for it. This is why you have to get your best in Greater Rift times to push the shard cap up.
New Legendary potion tweaks for tanks.
Take a look at the new tweaks for the potions that are sure to help those tanks players:
- Bottomless Potion of the Leech
Life on Hit increased from 1500-3000 to 15000-20000 for 5 seconds
- Bottomless Potion of Mutilation
Life on Kill increased from 4000-8000 to 40000-50000 for 5 seconds
- Bottomless Potion of Regeneration
Additional Life gained increased from 25000-45000 to 75000-100000 over 5 seconds
- Bottomless Potion of Rejuvenation
Gain 20-30% of your maximum resource when used below 50% Life
Release of Legendary gem that can be socketed into weapons.
In keeping with the Rainbow Gems from Diablo 2, you can now find a gem that can be socketed into weapons. Introduced in Season 2, you can put the gem of Ease into any weapon to make that weapon suitable for a Level 1 character. This is supposedly to help players make new toons.
Crafting gems doesn?t take forever.
You used to have to wait for your gems to finish crafting. Now, you just indicate how many gems and Shen crafts it all in one go. Very handy for making Imperial gems.
Among other changes include new Legendary set items and whole new sets for Barbarians, Witch Doctors and Demon Hunters.
