It’s difficult to forget Error 37 – the horrible error message that destroyed the dreams of many Diablo III players back when the game first launched. Since then, Blizzard have gone a long way in making up with their player base thanks to the fantastic, game-fixing, and all around good Reaper of Souls. The expansion has seen regular content updates which has kept many people clicking, long after release. Patch 2.2.0 is no different. It will keep Diablo III fans glued to the game for even longer, and it arrives just in time for the start of Season 3.
The patch is live on both PC and Console. Click on whatever platform you use to see a detailed breakdown of what you’ll be getting. Here are some of the highlights, as pointed out by Blizzard themselves:
- Three new Treasure Goblins have made their way into the realm of Sanctuary. Riches await for those who can catch them!
- When crafting gems and items, the entire quantity will now be crafted at once
- You can now increase your Blood Shard cap by achieving a personal best in Solo Greater Rifts
- Two new Legendary potions, two new Legendary gems, and dozens of new and revamped Legendary powers have been added
- Several sets across all six classes have received significant improvements and new Barbarian, Demon Hunter, and Wizard sets have been added to the game
These changes of course, coincide perfectly with the start of Season 3 which for us in South Africa, kicks off this Friday evening. Over on Reddit, there is a neat thread which summarises everything you’d need to know about it.
I’m excited for Season 3, and I’m happy with the new additions and changes brought by patch 2.2.0. I thought I was done with Diablo a while back, until a fuzzy friend of mine pulled me back in. That old bug has bitten me – I simply must kill ALL the things, keep my eyes peeled for that odd juicy drop, and fill that experience bar at the bottom… over and over again!
I will definitely be visiting Sanctuary more frequently. What about you? Are you still enjoying Blizzard’s mad clickathon, or have you left your demon slaying days behind?

Is this still not Offline playable? I’d love to get into this on my laptop but I have no internet connection.
