Do you want to know what are waiting for you in Patch 2.0.1? This would be all you have if you do not want to buy Diablo 3 Expansion Reaper of Souls.
Game Settings: Right after you have log in the game, you would find the Game Settings. You can choose Mode between Campaign and Adventure(which require expansion), choose Act and Difficulty. In the difficulty, as a level 60 players, you can only access to Normal, Hard, Expert, Master. Torment can be unlocked by one of your heroes reaching level 70. I have tried my Wizard in the Master. It gives me the impression of MP2 or 3 in the current setting.
Clan and Communities: You can find the new icon at the right bottom corner. You can create or search the communities or Clan you are interested. For example, there is Reddit clan, Barbarian Clan. And you can create a community with your friends.
Map: Press "M" you would get all the Waypoints of this act. You do not have to run to that specific waypoint to get to another place. This is pretty convenient.
Monster: Mortar affix monster would draw a circle on the ground when the fire drops. This kind of damage can be avoided. If you want to choose low level, just press "Esc" without leaving game. But if you want higher difficulty, you have to leave game first.
Revive Change: When you died, you have three options, revive at corpse, revive at last checkpoint or revive in Town. Of course, the death penalty still remains with 10% lose of your items duration.
Paragon Points: I have two paragon level 100 heroes, Paragon level 81 Wizard and some other level 60 heroes. I got 181 paragon points to use, 46 Core points, 45 Offense points, 45 Defense points and 45 Utility points. And you can reset the paragon points without costing anything. Just a click. Life on Hit can be added at the Utility. I guess you would not lost the points into Gold Find.

New skills: Passive skill Dominance "Killing an enemy grants a shield that absorbs 4954 damage for 5 seconds. This effect can stack up to 10 times."
