Follower Items Disappearing in Diablo III Console

Follower skills are resetting and items disappearing, as one of the known issues for the Console Diablo III

Followers in the Diablo III Console versions can be affected by a bug that resets them entirely - all their skills are reset, and more importantly any items they have equipped disappear entirely. This is one of the many bugs on the Console Diablo III Known Issues list, and will be patched in an upcoming game patch for the PS3, and title update for the Xbox 360.

This is a more serious bug than the previously reported bug of items disappearing in inventory, since that bug didn't actually remove the items, it just made them temporarily invisible. The bug with followers deletes items entirely that a follower has equipped. Fortunately it only has been seen in limited circumstances, so most players won't have it happen to them.

This is in the Console Bug Report forums Known Issues List:

We are hoping to have a potential resolution for this in our next patch/title update. I can't provide an ETA for that at this time, but we hope to get that out as soon as possible.
