Blizzard are taking the European Diablo 3 server offline between the hours of 3am BST tonight and 1pm BST Wednesday, June 20th in preparation for the launch of version 1.0.3. Similar downtimes are scheduled for the American and Asian servers, with work completed globally by 8am BST on Thursday. The patch will address a dizzying host of concerns, adjusting drop rates, generating more legendary Legendaries, axing bonus monster damage per additional co-op player and ramping up repair costs for max level characters.
There’s a complete overview of the what the patch aims to achieve over on the Battle.net blog, including a rather comprehensive overhaul of Blacksmith and Jeweler costs. Covetous Shen’s going to be way out of pocket, essentially.
