Diablo III has been updated to v1.0.3a in North America and Europe, Blizzard announced. Equipped items will now take "wear-and-tear" durability damage at half the previous rate. Note that durability loss as the result of normal combat is different from the 10% durability loss characters will incur when they die. Equipped items have always suffered durability loss while fighting, and developers are simply slowing the rate at which the loss occurs.
