RoS Closed Beta Patch Notes:
New Act: Explore Westmarch, the Blood Marsh, and Pandemonium
The latest chapter in Sanctuary’s epic saga is now available for testing. Adventurers can explore the dark and sinister alleys of Westmarch, trudge through the murky Blood Marsh wetlands, and take the fight to the Angel of Death himself on the ancient battlefields and lost strongholds of Pandemonium. All content from Act V is playable (excluding the final boss fight).
New Level Cap: 70
Players can now advance their characters to level 70.
New Class: The Crusader
The newest class, the Crusader, is at your command! Deck yourself out in battle-ravaged full plate, pick up a mighty tower shield, and smite your enemies with righteous Wrath. This Strength-based, mid-ranged melee hybrid warrior has been fully integrated into all Acts of the game with all-new character interactions, quests, and gear.
New Gameplay Mode: Adventure Mode
Adventure Mode is Diablo III’s new sandbox, where players have the freedom to explore and play the game however they like. In this mode, all waypoints are unlocked, so players can go where they want, when they want—across any Act as well! Adventure Mode also includes two new features: Bounties and Nephalem Rifts.

New Feature: Bounties
Bounties are optional, randomized objectives available only in Adventure Mode. In addition to providing players with a guided experience within a specific Act, Bounties are also intended to showcase all the different content Diablo III has to offer. Some examples of Bounties you can pick up include slaying a unique monster (like Mira Eamon), killing a boss (like Queen Aranae), clearing a dungeon (like the Khazra Den), and completing an event (like Last Stand of the Ancients). Each Act will have its own set of randomized Bounties for players to explore and conquer, and you’ll receive new Bounties each time you start a new Adventure Mode game.
For completing a single Bounty, players will receive gold, experience, and a new currency called “Blood Shards.” For completing all five Bounties within a single Act, players will also receive a greater Horadric Cache, full of randomized loot and crafting materials. Bounty hunters will also be rewarded with a new item, Rift Keystones. Rift Keystones grant access to another feature we’re introducing in Adventure Mode: Nephalem Rifts.
