Blizzard Details Diablo 3 Patch 1.0.5
Blizzard recently announced patch 1.0.5 for Diablo 3 and in addition to several of the defensive skills being modified, a pair of major features are also being included. The bigger of the two, in my opinion, is the Monster Power mechanic. This will "allow players set a monster power level, and the higher they set the level the bigger the bonuses they'll get to magic find, experience and loot drops -- but the harder the game will be." Gamers will be able to ramp the difficulty up or down to suit their play style and should enable the highest level players to get even richer as they will have access to even better drops. The second feature is the Inferno Machine, which will have players looking for pieces that can be combined into a device that will unlock additional bosses in the game. This feature isn't fully detailed, and the developers hope that it will be an adventure for players to find all the details.
