For those who might have missed it, a live version of the patch preview just aired on the Dreamhack stream. Lucky for you, I jotted it all down like a big nerd.

Exp gain increased and decreased based on relative level ( less for lower more for higher )

Gold Per 10 Items
Minor nerf to Philospher's Stone regen
Unique PER item ( one of each only )
