The first patch for Blizzard's loot-collecting clicker Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls is now live, bringing with it a rather large list of changes and fixes to classes, bugs and of course that precious loot.

Of the classes to be tweaked and changed, the Crusader seems to be the most affected with a rather large portion of the patch notes dedicated to the valiant warrior. Having been made available on the launch of the expansion, it was clear that certain balances were going to be seen as more players handled the class, though from a glance they still seem to play exactly like advertised: lots of smashing and lots of holy light.

Other changes include Nephalem Rifts getting layout tweaks, increase drop rate to Malthael's Reaper Fear legendary crafting material, Resplendent Chest increases to make loot much more appealing and the increase in survivability of pets summoned by several skills or items.

All this and more can be read in Blizzard's full patch notes. Let us know your thoughts on how Reaper of Souls is doing since its launch and if you've found any sick loot in the comments below!

Anyone else see this incoming hotfix?

The bonus legendary drop rate for rifts is being increased from 25% to 100%!
*This means that while in a rift your chance to find a legendary item from monsters, chests, elites, and everything else is double what it is outside of rifts. No this does not mean opening bounty bags in rifts is the new hotness. ;P

Kadala’s legendary drop rate has been significantly increased.
*Blood Shards are meant to be a compelling element of rift rewards and something players are excited to get.

Thank god for the increased legendary chance...

I havn't found a single legendary in the last day of gameplay and it was constant non-stop rifting with 3 others...

It is super nice having local shards now, hopefully that means they can delay patches until later our time to push through.
