A lot of players do think that pre-expansion Patch including Loot 2.0 would come shortly after the close of Diablo 3 Gold Auction House and Real Money Auction House in 18, March 2014. As to how soon, it should come the same day or the following week. Expansion Reaper of Souls would come next month or next two month. Shutdown of AH and Loot 2.0 would bring the media attention and bring players back. Then the launch of ROS would see a big sale. But this is all all assumption.
Community Manager Grimiku has promised to share us with more details as long as there are something craved in stone.
Paragon respecs are still under discussion. This means that this system is still a long time away. A log of players think there should be a D3 Gold charge on the respecs so you would not change the point every second. What do you think? Do you think this would increase the creativity of players to come up with new build?
