Diablo III Hotfixes for Patch 1.0.5 - October 18

Many bug fixes make up the first set of hotfixes for the new patch

Hotfixes in Patch 1.0.5
Patch 1.0.5 has only been out a couple of days, and the first round of hotfixes is now live. This first batch is just bug fixes, mainly fixes to remove some of the crash fixes in the client since the patch. Another fix is for the Reflects Damage monster affix, which was not reflecting damage all the time for pet classes. Combined with the main change to the Reflects Damage affix in the patch itself, it's a more deadly affix all around.

These hotfixes are already active on the Americas server, where they went live on Thursday morning.

Jump past the break to see all the details!

Below you'll find a list of hotfixes which address various gameplay and service issues affecting Diablo III. Hotfixes are updates we make on our end without requiring you to download a new patch. Some of the hotfixes below will go live the moment they are implemented, while others may require a restart to go into effect. Please keep in mind that some issues cannot be addressed without a client-side patch update. We will continue to update this thread in the days ahead as additional hotfixes are applied.
