Diablo 3 Patch 1.0.3 Datamined

Posted 16 Jun 2012 by

Patch 1.0.3 is now on the servers (although not live to download). These are the skill changes you can expect to see once the patch is live.

Please note Stun Grenades and Weapon Throw HAVE NOT BEEN NERFED they were always 1.5 seconds but the tooltip was rounding and Blizzard has corrected it this patch. Again, neither abilities have been nerfed it’s just a tooltip correction.

The following tooltips had spelling changes or were just slightly reworded: Juggernaut, Impale – Impact, Archery, Shock Pulse – Piercing Orb

Elemental Thorns have now been added to the affix pool
