Hotfixes, Patch 1.0.7a, and Patch 1.0.8 Details

Info on a hotfix and multiple patches on the way for Diablo III, detailed in a new guide

Diablo III Hotfixes
The Diablo III development team is very busy right now, cranking out fixes for the current patch 1.0.7 along with development on the patch 1.0.8. We have pulled together all the information posted so far from the developers and Community Managers, and compiled it into a big list:



There are details there about the next minor "fast-patch" that will likely be Patch 1.0.7a, to take care of the ongoing Auction House errors. The majority of the information is about the patch 1.0.8, which is in full development at this time. Apart from the Ask the Devs session going on right now, the developer team is busy deciding just what will be going into that next major patch.

Even before that happens, there are hotfixes going on all the time, to take care of minor bugs that can be fixed on the server without a client patch. There have been multiple hotfixes lately, even though they weren't fully documented at the time. See the Patch 1.0.7 Hotfixes info for details on those.

Another hotfix is also scheduled, most likely arriving during the 6 hours of Diablo III server downtime scheduled for Tuesday. This upcoming hotfix will include a fix for a bug that cropped up in patch 1.0.7, involving the Arcane Power on Crit item affix.
During the development of patch 1.0.7, a Wizard bug relating to Arcane Power on Crit was introduced when we fixed a bug that was causing Blizzard to not proc it at all.

The good news is, as of patch 1.0.7, Blizzard can now trigger Arcane Power on Crit! The bad news is, by fixing the bug with Blizzard, we introduced a new bug that was causing Archon: Disintegration Wave, Disintegrate, Energy Twister, Meteor, and Ray of Frost to trigger Arcane Power on Crit twice per proc rather than once per proc, resulting in a higher than normal proc rate. We plan on fixing this bug very soon, and wanted to give you a heads-up about it.

See the Future Patches for Diablo III section for all the info we have right now, and check back regularly as more is available.
