Post news RSS Version 3.36 officially released

It's a big update for many balance changes and a little nostalgia. Plus, act bosses are moderately weakened so that an experienced player can defeat them more easily even without the help of teammates. The core of Diablo is still single player, and I hope more players enjoy challenging the ultimate evils alone.
