Diablo 3 paragon level system in patch 1.0.4

Patch 1.0.4 introduces hero levels: the Paragon system

The patch 1.0.4 hype machine has been going non-stop for the last two weeks.

How does loot roll its stats? And what can Blizzard do to make it more fun?

Kripparian just released a video explaining how the loot is rolled in the game and how that affects your loot.
