Diablo III received the long-awaited 1.04 update today which incorporated a lot of the standard class-balancing and bug fixes we've become accustumed to over the months. However, Blizzard snuck in something big, and it's an important one for endgame players.
Patch 1.04 adds a new Paragon System which creates a whole new layer of reward and bonuses beyond the current level cap of 60 and effectively extends the highest obtainable level to 160. Blizzard summed what it is and what increased Paragon levels grant you in the patch notes, which state the following:
Admittedly, this does nothing to add new gameplay content beyond the four Acts included at the game's launch, but the upcoming PvP patch might be the solution to that admittable weakness.
In case you're wondering how sweet you'll look as you progress in Paragon levels, below is an image which shows all of its 11 stages of progression.
Ooh, ooh! I want a giant Diablo emblem around my avatar! Better get to work!
