Diablo III patch reduces equipment wear, fixes zombie bears

By Brenna Hillier, Wednesday, 27 June 2012 00:12 GMT

Just over a week since the release of patch 1.03, Blizzard has pushed out a small incremental update for Diablo III.

Version 1.03a is live in the US and will hit other regions soon; you may not be able to use global play until it does.

The main meat of the update is big fixes – go go zombie bear pathfinding – but a key point is that equipment will accumulate wear at half the previous rate. You’ll still suffer major damage when you die, but you’re less likely to blunt your claws while grinding.

Thanks, Blue.
