Diablo III Hotfixes for Patch 1.0.5 - October 23

Changes include a reduction in damage from Monster Power creatures in Inferno

Hotfixes in Patch 1.0.5
The Diablo III server was given a large set of hotfixes today, including two large changes for players hunting pieces to get the Hellfire Ring, in Inferno. One set of changes reduced the damage done across the board, for Inferno monsters in Monster Power level 1 or higher, as detailed yesterday.

Today's hotfixes also brought some nerfs to the keywarden Xah'rith. Xah'rith was much more difficult than the other keywardens, so this brings it back in line.

Jump past the break for all the hotfix 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.
