YouTube sensation Rhykker released a video outlining the upcoming Diablo 3 2.1.2 patch. The new patch features 3 kinds of Treasure Goblins, two new gems and a new zone. They are also adding new legendary affixes, items and ancient items.

Blizzard is doing much to keep Diablo 3 updated and address player feedback. Will any of these changes get you to come back to Diablo?

Sweet! Now I'm wondering if it will fix the issue I'm currently having where the Gibbering Gemstone isn't being dropped very often by Chiltara, the last item I need to make the Herding Staff. Apparently, the drop rate was 100%, but then was decreased. I saw where some people were complaining about the decrease and Blizzard said it would fix it in a later patch.

Hopefully that is rolled up in this patch as part of the bugs they fix. What is the new drop rate for that gemstone?

I'm not sure, but it's definitely not common, neither is the monster that spawns it. I'd say the monster is more common because I've defeated it plenty of times now.

I like that the game is still getting updates and more things to do. I like that Blizzard keeps giving us more reasons to get back into the game. I only recently got back into the game after finding out about the "cow level," Whimsyshire. Since then, I've been working on obtaining the ingredients to create the Herding Staff, so I can get there. If you want to follow that discussion, check it out in the forum post I made.

I've only played two classes so far, Barbarian and Crusader. The Barbarian was the first character I created and as I'm working on my current "quest" (mentioned above), I've been using him. Sometime I may pop back in the game as my Crusader to finish what I was doing with him, which was just playing the game with that class. I am still aware of the other classes and I am interested in playing them. This video (above) made me want to play some of the other classes as well.
