Recent updates include fixes for the Vault and Arcane Torrent skills

Diablo III Hotfixes for Patch 2.0.3
The Diablo III hotfixes continue, to get rid of as many little bugs and issues as possible, before the release of the Reaper of Souls Expansion. Some of the latest updates that have rolled out include fixes for the Wizard Arcane Torrent skill, and the Demon Hunter Vault skill. As always, there is also a list of Known Issues that can't be fixed right now. Read on for all the info!


Here are the latest hotfixes, that have been added since the patch 2.0.3 went live. See the full list of Patch 2.0.3 Hotfixes for all the hotfixes, so far.

Arcane Torrent - Power Stone
One of the hotfixes above dealt with the rune Arcane Torrent - Power Stone. Before the hotfix went live, Nevalistis discussed the issue, and why it was being changed so that only the Wizard who spawned the Arcane Stone could benefit from it.

Running with a monk? A Barb? WD? DH? If they get the stone, you still get the AP.


This? This is a design we currently like. It promotes teamwork in gameplay, and feels pretty cool to have your buddies help you out.

Running with a wizard? If your fellow wizard brethren gets the stone, you BOTH get the arcane power.

Uh oh.


This behavior is not intended. This particular "synergy" too overtly encourages class stacking, and that's something we'd like to avoid. We do have a hotfix in the works to correct this behavior so that only the Wizard who generated the power stone receives the Arcane Power generated from it.


Guaranteed Rare Items on Act Bosses
In the Diablo III Patch 2.0.3 Patch Notes, one listed change is: Act Bosses now always drop a rare quality item. The question came up, whether that meant that those bosses could only drop Rare items. The answer is that they can certainly drop Legendary items as well, but now there's always at least a guaranteed Rare drop.

I've had a few act boss kills with only blue drops.

Yellows drop so often, it didn't bother me at all - just weird to kill the boss and not get one.


We thought this felt a little weird as well, hence this change.

I do want to clarify that bosses always have had and still do have a chance to drop a Legendary. They'll just now always at least drop a Rare as well.


Hexing Pants of Mr. Yan Resource Regeneration
Sometimes, what looks like a bug with an item is a matter of an incorrect description. The legendary pants Hexing Pants of Mr. Yan look like they should provide increased regeneration of both Hatred and Discipline, for Demon Hunters. But they are intended to just restore the primary resource, so Discipline is not increased by them.
This is actually working as intended. I followed up with our designers and these pants are only supposed to contribute to Hatred Regeneration, not Discipline. I'll make a suggestion that they reword the tooltip, but I can't make promises as to whether or not that will happen.


Known Issues for Patch 2.0.3
Finally, here is the current fairly short list of Known Issues, as listed by the Diablo III QA team.
Hello everyone, and welcome to Patch 2.4.1! Below you will find the Known Issues list for our 2.4.1 patch. Please do not report bugs that you see on this list, as we already know about them, and help out other players reporting bugs by referring them to this list.

As a reminder, this list will not list every bug that is active in the 2.4.1 patch. What it is listed here are a select few issues -- chosen due to visibility and impact -- that are active and confirmed as bugs by Quality Assurance with verifiable steps and (in most cases) an expected fix. Just because a bug is not on this list does not mean we don't know about it! In addition, potential exploits and the like will never be listed here.

Please note that documented bugs may not always be fixed in the order in which they were reported. In some cases, we may not have a timeline for a when a bug will be fixed and some bugs may not be able to be fixed at all. If we are able to verify that a documented bug cannot be fixed, it will be removed from this list.

Thank you for your continued reports, and enjoy Diablo III!!!
