Blizzard has taken the Reaper of Souls beta down for a day to implement the new patch and character wipe.
At present, we anticipate that we’ll be keeping the beta offline until our patch and character wipe can be completed. This means that once the beta is brought back online, a new patch should be available and all beta characters should be wiped.
We apologize for the short notice and would like to thank everyone for their feedback thus far!
What’s going to be in the patch? They haven’t said much about it, but word of a new/returning/renamed feature was sneaked into another reply about end game content. Here’s the new bit:
It doesn’t sound like that’s coming in the patch tomorrow, if they’re talking about sharing details when it draws closer. Which means the Reaper of Souls beta patch contents are still put-near a total mystery. We shall unwrap them like surprise Christmas prezzies! As for Cursed Chests, I’m taking that as good news because, 1) randomly-spawning Jar of Souls style “waves of attackers” events sounded like a lot of fun, and 2) Blizzard bowed to popular sentiment and changed the name to not include the overused word, “Nephalem”.
