Diablo 3 Game Changes -- Increased Drop Rates And Bug Fixes


Posted June 28, 2012 - By Leah Jackson

Blizzard Planning Big Diablo 3 News For BlizzCon This Year

Blizzard has made a few great changes to Diablo 3 over the past few days that increased the drop rate of high-end items and fixed some game-breaking bugs. Before this change, gamers like myself could spend hours trying to get rare items off of bosses in Diablo 3 only to be rewarded with low-level items worth nothing on the Auction House. With Blizzard's fix, rare items that could potentially be worth a lot of gold now have more than double the chance to drop.

Additionally, Blizzard fixed an unintended bug that was restricting anyone who bought Diablo 3 digitally from playing past Act 1 of the game. After the break, we've posted Diablo 3's most recent change log.



  • The drop rates for high-end items (items level 61-63) have been increased for Acts III and IV of Hell difficulty and Acts I – IV of Inferno difficulty:

            The new approximate drop rates are as follows:

                Hell – Act III and Act IV
                    iLvl 61: 9% to 13.9%
                    iLvl 62: 1.9% to 3.45%
                    iLvl 63: 0% (no change)

                Inferno – Act I
                    iLvl 61: 17.7% to 23.9%
                    iLvl 62: 7.9% to 12.6%
                    iLvl 63: 2.0% to 4.8%

                Inferno – Act II
                    iLvl 61: 18.6% to 23.3%
                    iLvl 62: 12.4% to 18.6%
                    iLvl 63: 4.1% to 9.3%

                Inferno – Act III and Act IV
                    iLvl 61: 24.1% to 27.1%
                    iLvl 62: 16.1% to 21.7%
                    iLvl 63: 8.0% to 16.3%

    Bug Fixes

        Fixed a bug with several items that would allow those items to block pathing when dropped on the ground



  • Bosses are now guaranteed to drop at least 1 Rare item for players with 4 stacks of Nephalem Valor and at least 2 Rare items for players with 5 stacks of Nephalem Valor

Bug Fixes


  • Fixed a crash that could sometimes occur when a player was interacting with environment objects (e.g. opening chests or clicking on a lectern)
  • Fixed several additional game and service crashes
