Diablo 3 patch 1.0.3a patch notes


Hot off the presses are the patch notes for Diablo III 1.0.3a. Mainly these are bug fixes, but they also fix a nasty issue with unique mobs' not dropping the right amount of loot. Blizzard has steadily been fixing D3 issues as they come up, and it's good to see another bug fix patch.

The full patch notes are as follows:

Diablo III Patch 1.0.3a – v.1.0.3. 10235

Witch Doctor
Bug Fixes
  • Zombie Charger -- Skill Rune – Zombie Bears -- Fixed a bug where Zombie Bears were unable to attack targets on slopes
  • Zombie Bears should no longer become stuck on objects with which they shouldn't have collision

  • Equipped items will now take "wear-and-tear" durability damage at half the previous rate
  • Please note that durability loss as the result of normal combat is different from the 10% durability loss characters will incur when they die. Equipped items have always suffered durability loss while fighting, and we are simply slowing the rate at which the loss occurs.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a bug that was causing Unique monsters to not drop the appropriate amount of loot when slain
  • Fixed a bug with linking items with 3 gem sockets
  • It is no longer possible to create fake achievement links
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed a bug that was causing the "Switch Hero" button to occasionally disappear after leaving a game while in town
  • Fixed several gold and leveling exploits
  • Fixed several game and service crashes (for Mac and PC)
