Blizzard has announced that patch 1.0.4 will be coming to Diablo 3 in the fourth week of August and has released some of what can be expected when it is released. Most of the changes are geared towards encouraging co-op play instead of solo play. However, no changes will be made that will be a detriment to those that wish to play solo. The first change is to remove the averaging of magic and gold find in co-op games, allowing all players to take full advantage of their gear. Monster health will also scale evenly across difficulty levels instead of changing based on the difficulty level being played. Normal monsters will receive a bit of a health buff, while champion and elite packs will have their health brought down. Weapon damage is also receiving a buff that will give two handed weapons a fighting chance against a single handed weapon and off-hand item, and level 61 and 62 items will have the potential to match damage of level 63 weapons. Blizzard also plans to announce several updates for each character class as part of the patch so stay tuned.
