Another small Diablo III patch was released today, covering a handful of bug fixes for the auction house, the general chat, and the tooltips. There are no changes to item drop rates or other tweaks to the gameplay like we've seen in other patches.

You can check out all those other patches notes, too, for more information on what's changed the last few iterations (patch 1.0.2, patch 1.0.3, patch 1.0.3a, large June hotfixes). Of particular note is that Inferno Mode has had its barrier to entry significantly reduced now and provides for a much less head-desking time when farming items.

Still no PvP patch yet. That one's a bit off in the future.

Diablo III Patch 1.0.3b – v.1.0.3.10485

Bug Fixes
  • The "Bid" and "Buyout" buttons will now be correctly grayed-out in the confirmation window when attempting to purchase an item with insufficient gold

Bug Fixes
General
  • Fixed a bug where leaving a heavily-populated General chat channel would prevent players from rejoining any General chat channel until they logged out and logged back in
  • Fixed several tooltip-related bugs that were occurring when viewing items with 2 or more sockets in the auction house and profile pages
  • Fixed a rare crash with tutorials on item pickup
