Very nice optimization and those are similar requirements to SC2. So no big surprise here, you don't need to buy new parts unless you computer is very old. Remember that those are not Diablo 3 game requirements ! Those are Beta Specifications !

Fixed an issue with Dashing Strike where casting it would sometimes cause the character to become stuck performing the ability repeatedly, at no resource cost.
 Fixed an issue that allowed characters to receive the Divine Protection buff witout having an Alabaster Runestone socketed in Mantra of Evasion.


Helm icons will now properly display for both male and female characters.


Act 1

New Tristram
 Fixed an issue where the southern gate out of New Tristram would not be open for all characters on the quest “The Fire From the Sky: Talk to Leah inside the Inn”
 Fixed an issue that did not properly remove a character’s way points and checkpoints when restarting the beta after killing the Skeleton King wile on the qust “Reign of the Black King”.

Leoric’s Passage
 Players will no longer receive error messages when cancelling out of the cutscene for the quest “The Legacy of Cain: Save Deckard Cain.”

Chancellor’s Tomb
 The portal in the Chancellor’s Tomb returning you to the Defiled Crypt is now correctly labelled.
