Now with more Paragon than ever before.

The upcoming Reaper of Souls expansion will bring substantial changes to the way the Paragon system works, Blizzard revealed in a blog post update late last week.
Paragon 2.0 will remove the cap on Paragon levels, as well as sharing all of your Paragon levels account-wide. This is segregated by game mode, so your Normal characters will share one Paragon level, and your Hardcore characters another.
“We made this change so players wouldn’t feel obligated to continue playing the same hero over and over again in order to maximize their farming efficiency,” say Blizzard. “We want players to have fun with the game, to experiment with different classes, and to feel rewarded for their time investment, regardless of what hero they’re playing.”
“We also want everyone to fully enjoy the new content coming in Reaper of Souls — including the Crusader class — without feeling as though they’ve ‘wasted Paragon levels’ on a previous hero.”
Perhaps the biggest change now is that instead of constant bonuses to statistics like Magic Find, each Paragon level will bring with it new Paragon Points to spend in four specific areas. Details and screenshots explaining how this works can be read over here at the official site.
