That's a very strange way to officially announce the patch go live. Whatever. I'm happy. :) Must go plan hunting!

did they change the drop rate for plans? i remember ppl saying that you can just keep killing ghom over and over since he is easily accessible...

Yes, they changed the drop rates for plans and Demonic Essences to scale with MP. More info on the latest PTR patch notes here.

Also, in the 1.0.7 Ask The Devs Q&A one of the questions was about the buff to drop Blacksmith Plans and Jeweler Designs by 400%. They stated that Legendary Plans will not have their drop rate adjusted, and will continue to be scarce.

It's a shame about the increase in plan drop rates, as I have a number of plans that were worth millions but since the PTR notes aren't worth much at all. Not sure why they changed drop rates for *all* blue/rares plans, kinda killed a market there.

Would getting a group together to go 'plan' farming be good? Hmm now I'm thinking it, what would be the best way to divvy up plans you already have?

Sadly not much has excited me about this patch apart from the XP boost :l I'll likely craft an amu at the end of each run but that's about it.

None of my char's are high end geared, and there's no way for me to find similar players of my level for PVP. It's all a bit of a snorefest :S

Ghom is the fastest for a single plan (Skycrown Battlements for 4-5 stacks, Keep 3 for the last). Tack on Keep 2 for extra XP. If you're willing to do a little more, you can run Cydaea through Rakanoth getting a boss kill inbetween (Subjagators in Act 4 might make this a bad idea for HC).

Demonic Essence farming is going to be Vault of the Assassins in Act 2, buy you'll have to run MP1.

My gem auctions are going to finish during the maintenance so I'm going to miss the immediate post-patch bump and the initial flurry of Archon plan selling. Boo. Probably shouldn't call in to work sick...

I personally believe the prices won't go very high. These plans are really easy enough to get yourself, so I don't see people spending a lot on them.
I might be wrong... but I'm not going to cry if i miss the launch.

I agree that over the long-run the plans won't be worth much, but there's going to be a large spike within the first hour when there's no supply and a small amount of demand. After the first handful of sales gets Gold flowing, the sellers will use the Gold they earned off the Strength recipe to buy an Intelligence recipe, etc. As the supply increases, the prices will decrease, but there will probably be a lot of action through the end of the night. The best prices will probably come within the first hour, however.

If you're one of the lucky ones to catch an Emerald or Ruby Marquise Gem recipe early, you'll be in for a big payday.

With the server coming up during an off-peak time, there won't be a huge mass of players hunting for the plans. Beyond that, you have to kill the bosses at MP5 to have even a 50% chance of having the plans drop. The number of players that can efficiently farm Act 3 MP0 vastly outnumbers the number of players that can efficiently Key farm at MP5 (the equivalent to Recipe farming). There's no good gauge right now for how quickly the recipes will be piling up, particularly the desirable Amulet, Gauntlet and Razorspikes recipes. There were a surprising number of people on the official forums mentioning shoulders so even those will have a market for a while.

In fact, as players realize they're going to need to be running MP3-5 to have any worthwhile chance of finding the recipes and DEs, they're going to have to add dps to their low-MP farming builds which they've been running for months. I would bet the very good gear market ~10-30 million Gold will pick up over the course of the week while people build dps. I'll probably be in that boat with them, unfortunately.

Besides, even if they plans are only going for 50k by the end of the week, that's still 50k I wasn't getting before for killing bosses. The XP bonus for MP3-5 will be an added benefit.

@gnawol Latest official word:
We will be performing scheduled game maintenance for Diablo 3 on Tuesday, February 12th. Maintenance will begin at 03:00 AM PST and is expected to last for 10 hours. During this time Diablo 3 will not be available for play. In addition, many web services will be unavailable.

It was originally "8 hours" so the estimated time is now pushed back to 13:00 PST.

@ecocd thanks, i see it's been pushed back again until 3pm pst, i definitely won't stay awake for that. Was planning to get in early on finding/selling some crafting plans, 3am local time is too late for me though to bother
