Diablo 3 Patch 1.0.2 is Now Live

The promised patch that Blizzard announced last week is now available for download for those who wishes to have a smoother performance and balanced gameplay.

The 1.0.2 patch for Diablo 3 can be downloaded automatically upon booting the game client. The patch is too small that it will only take seconds to download.
