Diablo 1.1.1 Patch Preview: All 99 Class Buffs, Plus A Release Date

After Diablo 4’s disastrous nerf-heavy patch earlier this month, Blizzard promised they had learned their lesson and that not only would they not swing that hard in the future, they were going to come out with a large patch soon addressing two hit-hard classes, Sorcerer and Barbarian.

The result is a sprawling list of changes that are 100% buffs to classes, 99 in total that I could count, with well over half of those going to Sorcerer and Barbarian alone. Sorcerer in particular got a huge amount of help to its fire and lightning based branches, plus lots of damage reduction.

These are not yet finalized patch notes. 90-95% of things will probably make it to the patch, and some values may change. But they are trying to be more open about changes more early. The release date for the patch is Tuesday, August 8. Official patch notes that sort of look like this list will be out August 2.
