Patch 1.0.4 Known Issues, and Undocumented Changes

Many changes and oddities that weren't in the official patch notes.

1.0.4 Patch
In patch 1.0.4 as with all Diablo III patches, there are always changes that weren't in the official patch notes. Some of these are improvements and tweaks to the game that just didn't get mentioned, and others are the more annoying bugs that weren't fixed in the latest patch.

We have two large lists, that cover those areas. First is the official known issues thread for patch 1.0.4, with various bugs and oddities that either are new to the game, or have been around for a while and still aren't fixed in this patch. There is also a list of undocumented changes, from a list compiled on Reddit.

Jump past the break to see both lists, and learn about all the little changes and oddities.

Patch 1.0.4 Known Issues
Hello everyone, and welcome to Patch 1.0.6a! Below you will find the Known Issues list for our 1.0.6a patch (patch notes are available here). 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 1.0.6a patch. What it is listing are issues that are active and confirmed as bugs by Quality Assurance. 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 rare 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 the Diablo III!!!
