Aztec Gaming: “Diablo III” major system changes announced


by Shane Carpenter

Jay Wilson, Blizzard Entertainment’s game director for “Diablo III”, announced today many major game system changes coming to the game, including:

  • Scrolls of Identification are gone – players can now identify rares/legendary items without them.
  • Button ‘5’ is now dedicated to potions.
  • The Mystic artisan has now been removed from the game.
  • The Cauldron of Jordan and Nephalem Cube have been removed.
  • The Stone of Recall is now a button at the bottom and has been renamed “Town Portal”.
  • The Blacksmith is now responsible for salvaging players’ items.
  • Common (white colored) items are no longer salvageable.

Let’s hope that these changes don’t delay this already long-in-the-making game any further from its projected Q1 2012 release date.

Leave comments below on how you feel about these changes or “Diablo III” in general.
