Beta patch 16

Full patch notes here. Unofficial changes listed here.

It's a very light patch which is healthy, the game is almost done.

For the Witch Doctor Haunt got reduced duration which is a very nice buff (it does its damage quicker), Locust Swarm got higher damage and Sacrifice got higher damage. Generally a good patch for us. Haunt - Resentful Spirit is now really useful doing 287% weapon damage over 2 seconds (then presumably jumping to another target if it kills).

Dots are rather redundant in Beta but will be useful for the harder difficulties.


  1. Hidden yet pesky change

    Removed the 1,25 flat auction fee, introduced a nasty 15% fee on everything (gold, items, ...),

    Selling something for 100$ will reward Blizzard with 15$, instead of 1,25.

    Greedy Blizzard.

  2. I think I'll be doing a lot of trading via the trade channel > secure trade screen.
