Didn't know it was coming so fast after talking it up. Good on em to end the fire hose when it dropped.

Hopefully it helps clean up some issues people have. I want to love this game more!

A few changes I thought were interesting no one has mentioned so far:

* The last follower a player had active in a single-player game will now be restored automatically after leaving a multiplayer game
* The frequency of follower dialog has been reduced

Both seem like good ideas.

Farming anyone? Let's go find some of those new badass Legendaries.

I started playing my Non-HC characters again in anticipation of the patch: he's much closer to 60, and there's no way I'm farming Inferno in HC any time soon.

Drop rates are definitely better along with monsters generally weaker and players generally stronger. I went back and played for an hour last night and actually accumulated money and better items (e.g. blues actually dropped from ash jars, and gold every now and then, not back to pre-1.0.3 but way better).

The best part... Tomes and potions are no longer white -- they are a light blue so stand out way better (I'm sure I accidentally left a lot on the ground when they were white)

I think your findings are correct. I got way more blues and yellows and they were better. More gold. Monsters were easier and there were more of them I found.

Attacks I didn't normally use WAY more powerful. Oh and it was fun for a bit and then I went back to Skyrim. All told, its a good improvement and I am eager to play it more.
