1.2.3a has dropped and with it we have some quick changes to Uber Unique drop rates, some vampire power updates, and a few bug fixes.
- Echo of Duriel drop rates for Uber Uniques will now be doubled until January 8th
This is a massive boost to the drop rate so get out there and farm. Blizzard developers have stated this is only a temporary changed ending on January 8th. So, consider it a holiday gift and get out there to farm your target pieces of gear.
- Vampire Power Update:
- Metamorphosis: Unstoppable duration changed to a flat rate instead of scaling with vampiric power level.
- Unstoppable duration changed to 2.5 seconds at all levels. No longer increases per level.
- Damage increased from 80%/120%/160% to 110%/180%/250%
Note that the in-game tooltip will not relfect these new values and will be updated with a later client update.
Fixed an issue where in extreme cases, Charged Bolts would result in stability and performance issues.
