Patch 0.7 is in beta testing right now. (Is there a such thing as a beta within a beta?)


Patch 0.7 Notes

Memory Usage

    * Fixed a UI-related memory leak
    * Fixed a clothing and armor texture-related memory issue

User Interface

    * New Party Panel interface that helps players find other players for creating groups more easily.
    * Reorganized the De-modificator, Augmentrex, and Nanoforge interfaces to appear in the left-hand panel area.
    * Added an auto-transparency feature to the chat interface. This feature can be toggled in the Game Options menu.
    * Players should now be able to skip all startup logo splash-screens with a single click.

Nightmare Difficulty

    * The difficulty of Nightmare has been rebalanced. More overall experience is earned in Nightmare levels, scaling of group experience and difficulty has been improved, and the overall level progression has been adjusted.

Skills

    * Fixed skills getting added to and/or removed from Shift activation when swapping weapons.
    * Investing a skill point into an Aura skill will no longer automatically cause it to activate.

Templar

    * Taunt skills are no longer reduced in effectiveness when grouped

Blademaster


    * Path of Righteousness now applies damage from offhand melee weapons.

Guardian

    * Prayer of Retribution can now be used while poisoned.
    * Prayer of Healing can no longer be used while poisoned.

Cabalists

    * The Summon Ember and Summon Fire Elemental skills should no longer conflict when granted through items.

Evokers

    * Fixed a bug that caused Drain Power to charge an upfront power cost.
    * Tempest’s targeting range has been increased and should now properly lose targets that move out of range.
    * Fixed a bug which prevented Boneshards from having any effect on every other cast.
    * Fixed a bug which prevented Evokers from using any other skills for two seconds after casting Boneshards.

Summoners


    * Hand of Nostrom correctly adds more beams as the skill level increases.
    * Fixed a bug which sometimes caused the Warper’s pet icon to not show up.
    * Master of the Flame’s skill effects now display properly in the skill description tooltip.

Engineers
          o Engineer Drone behavior improved.
          o Fixed a bug that allowed Repair Drone to be used at no cost.
          o Drones will now level properly along with their owner. Existing Drones that are below your character’s level will automatically be raised to the correct level.
          o Drones now receive correct health bonuses with skill level after re-summoning it.

Marksmen
          o Overshield now gives the correct amount of shields.
          o Fixed a bug that prevented Homing Shot from activating properly

Quests

    * Fixed a bug with the Cannon Street Rails Quest Bug.
    * Fixed an end of Act 4 bug where Maxim and Arphaun occupy the same place, allowing you to only talk to one of them, thus preventing you from completing the quest.
    * Fixed a bug where Slaughterbeast occasionally doesn't spawn as expected for the “Regular Customer” quest.

Items

    * Improved the drop rate of various recipes and analyzers.
    * New blueprints have been added for Focus items and Boots.
    * Focus items and Boots can now be made by crafters.
    * Fixed a bug where Auras would turn on and off when swapping weapons that grant aura skills.

Guilds and Groups


    * Fixed a bug where players were not seeing Guild invites.
    * Introduced new Auto-Party logic to provide better matches.

World Movement


    * Fixed additional instances where players were sometimes randomly teleported when other people use portals.
    * Players can now use the /stuck command when in Ghost form.
    * Fixed rare instances where certain areas were impassible.

Miscellaneous


    * Fixed a bug where Founders saw all character names in blue text.
    * Fixed rare issues with being unable to properly apply the Multiplayer patch.
    * Fixed a bug with mods on weapons not being properly equipped when loading a character.
    * Fixed rare cases where the PRD became unusable.
    * Fixed a bug where numerous pets would show up in Stations.

So in other words, they've done nothing to improve the UI.

That transmogrifier (aka Horadric Cube) will definitely fuel the rumors of a cow level.

Hellgate has been deleted off my HD for the time being until they releases about 10 more patches that actually get the game to a real 1.0 level.

Ohh and put a damn skill respec option in Flagship!

I'm seriously considering trading the game while it's still worth something.

I did just that. I sold my copy. That was seriously the most unfinished release I can remember since Descent to Undermountain.

Hmmm, does this mean if I put the original Hellgate DVD into it, it will "transmogrify" into a version 1.0 DVD?  bowdown

Maybe I'll put MOH: Airborne and perhaps SWAT: Target Liberty (PSP) into there, and they'll become something new and wonderful too!  nod

Actually I've heard if you put Hellgate into it, along with a hair follicle from Steig Hedlund (Diablo II lead designer, and unemployed Gods & Heroes designer), and a few misbegotten magazine headlines such as  "Diablo II Killer!", along with some fingernail clippings from current Blizzard employees you get...
