Blizzard Entertainment released today the Diablo III patch 1.02 which addresses the server issue fixes mentioned in the recent developer article, but they managed to squeeze in some last minute class changes for monks and witch doctors.
The monk's Mantra of Healing got a bit of a boost that might benefit all party members in Inferno -- increasing health regen by 310 per sec. The Boon of Protection rune for Mantra of Healing allows party members to gain health per hit.
