Blizzard is issuing a new update to Diablo 3 in the public test realm (PTR) to put the next update through its paces before it becomes widely available. The 2.6.9 patch will begin its two-week testing phase on Thursday, May 21. Those who participate in the test will be able to check out some new gear for Demon Hunter and Necromancer, with some special items to help speed you on your way.
The main draw of the patch is the two near gear sets, one for Demon Hunter and one for Necromancer. The Demon Hunter set is called Gear of Dreadlands, and if you manage to collect all six pieces, your primary skills do 10,000% more damage. Necromancer gets the Masquerade of Burning Carnival, which gives you a 3300% Bone Spear damage buff every time you consume a corpse.
Both classes also get a bunch of new other buffs and adjustments, and there are some skill changes for both Necromancer and Witch Doctor.
