Blizzard removes unintended cap on new Diablo III players

Purchasers of the digital version of Diablo III will now be able to progress past level 13 and the game's first Act, according to Blizzard. These restrictions were an "unintended consequence" of the studio's security measures put in place to "help ensure the integrity of the game and auction house service."

Of course, there are still other restrictions on those aforementioned players until payment verification can be completed by Blizzard. Once again, they are:

  • No public game access for unverified digital purchasers
  • No auction house access (real-money or gold) for unverified digital purchasers
  • Unverified digital purchasers cannot trade items or drop items for other players to receive
  • Unverified digital purchasers are not able to chat in any public or game channels
  • Unverified digital purchasers cannot attach a custom message to friend requests, but they can send/accept friend requests, and play with their friends
  • Global Play is not available for unverified digital purchasers

Still unfortunate to see, but not quite as aggravating. If you happen to be playing Diablo III on Hell or Inferno, you'll be interested to hear that the drop rates were increased for items level 61-63, among other recent hotfixes.

...And it begins
It's probably for the best
The original and Reaper of Souls across all platforms
Diablo finally sacks the Middle Kingdom
It's not like you were using it anyway
+100 percent buff
I mean, what else is there to say?
A higher Legendary drop rate
$60 on new consoles, $40 on old
They successfully transformed my opinion of the game
