Diablo 3 – Patch 1.0.8 Now Live

The Diablo 3 Patch 1.0.8 is now live in the Americas.

Here are the Social features within the patch:

Social:

  • Players can now add a note about a friend by right-clicking the name in their Friends List
  • Players can now enter a message that will be broadcast to their friends
  • Players can now create multi-user conversations
  • There are multiple ways to start a conversation or invite other players to an existing conversation:

          To start a conversation, open Public Chat Options, then select Invite Friends > Start Conversation or use the “Start a Conversation” option in the Social window by right-clicking on a friend’s name To invite or add friends to an existing conversation, open Public Chat Options, then select Invite Friends or use the “Invite to a Conversation” option in the Social window by right clicking a friend’s name and selecting the desired conversation
Similar to public channels, private conversations can support up to 99 players

  • A new section has been added to the friends list called “Players Near You”

          Any player who is on your local network will be displayed here (even if they’re not currently your friend) If needed, this feature can be disabled from the Social Options of the Game menu

  • Players may now be marked as a “Party Guide”

          The Party Guide is assigned to the first person who joins a Public Game
          If multiple characters join a Public Game at the same time, the game will choose the hero with the highest level or Paragon level to be Party Guide
          When a Party Guide leaves the Public Game, a new one will be chosen automatically
          Alternatively, the Party Guide can right click on a party member’s portrait and pass them the Party Guide title
          The Party Guide will have a unique icon that will appear on the mini-map

  • Names in your “Recent Players” list will now expire if they become older than a month
  • Blocked players will no longer appear in your “Recent Players” list

You can check out the full and massive patch notes on the official Diablo III website.
