The Diablo 4 patch notes for the second week of the beta are here and offer up a number of changes and fixes to improve the performance of the game and allow you to play more smoothly. However, the proper balance changes and bigger alterations will not arrive until the full game.

With the Diablo 4 release date still a while away, these changes will be a good starting point before we get the launch patch notes in late May or June. So, no matter which of the Diablo 4 classes you are, there will be something in the patch notes to improve your gameplay experience.
