Patch 1.0.5 Preparation and Barbarian Paragon Leveling Update

News for patch 1.0.5 has started to be released. It seems like this patch will be another good step forward for Diablo 3. In this patch you can expect to see the Infernal Machine and the new Monster Power system.

Infernal Machine is a type of machine that you will need to gather parts (from item drops) in order to complete it and once it’s completed you will get to fight the uber bosses. As of right now we know of one reward from this is a legendary ring (that is bind on account). Not sure how hard this will be, but hopefully it will be challenging.

One thing I think they should do is add uber versions of D2 bosses into D3. That would be pretty cool. 🙂

The Monster Power system is like the “players 8” command in Diablo 2. You get to increase the difficulty (health and damage) of the monsters and you will earn more xp, better loot, etc. Pretty easy to understand. One thing I want to do is find my specific Monster Power number in which I will be able to get awesome rewards while still farming fast.

The system goes from 1-10 with the current Inferno difficulty is around 2-3. That leaves some awesome scaling on difficulty for 10 I hope. Worst thing that could happen is Monster Power 10 being not difficult enough.

That’s pretty much all we know (for these 2 topics) at the moment. I’m hoping they bring out more info pretty quickly and bring the patch kinda fast.
