With the upcoming Reaper of Souls expansion for Diablo 3, there has been plenty of speculation about what will change in the game. One of those elements that are going to be overhauled with this new act is the Paragon end-game system, which was first implemented to make playing the game past Inferno and level cap more interesting.

The new patch had just been implemented; another update to fine tune the game by fixing what needs to be fixed and improve what could to be improved. As announced before, the Holiday Present Sack will be removed with this update since it's no longer the Holidays.
