One of Blizzard’s major concerns for Diablo III stems from the lack of end-game content to keep players engaged after they’ve completed the game. In patch 1.0.4 Blizzard will introduce the Paragon System, one that is designed to address Magic Find gear-swapping and offer an extended progression system for players that have already completed their journey to level 60.
After a player hits level 60, any further experience earned from slaying monsters will count towards the player’s Paragon level. Hitting Paragon levels will increase core player stats, and will increase Magic/Gold finds as well. Initially, Blizzard will offer 100 Paragon levels that will be marked on the player’s portrait with the Paragon progression. A new design will be unlocked after every ten Paragon levels.
Dealing with Magic Find items, Blizzard will be capping Magic Find at 300%. This cap will be reached at Paragon level 100, and once capped players can focus solely on equipping for survival and strength. For the complete run-down on the new Paragon system, head over to Battle.net for all the details.
