Diablo III Patch 2.1.1 Goes Live on PC

Some Crusader and Witch Doctor skills have been tweaked!

Even thought console versions of Diablo III have been getting most of the love lately with Ultimate Evil Edition, that doesn’t mean the PC version has been left out to dry. PC players will find that a new patch, Patch 2.1.1, went live a couple of days ago in North America and did quite a bit to enhance the game as it stands today.

With various modifications to pets, character classes, items, Adventure Mode, crafting, and the various monsters we encounter in the game. It is unknown when the console versions will receive this patch in the future. Check out the full patch list below to view all the changes now added:
