          • Zombie Bears should no longer become stuck on objects with which they shouldn’t have collision
  • General
    • 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.

    • Fixed a bug with linking items with 3 gem sockets
    • It is no longer possible to create fake achievement links

Scheduled Maintenance

We will be performing scheduled maintenance for Diablo III starting tomorrow at 5:00 a.m. PDT in order to deploy patch 1.0.3a. We anticipate that maintenance will conclude and that all services will be available by approximately 7:00 a.m. PDT. 

Important: Please note that you will not be prompted to download patch 1.0.3a until the patch is live in your home region. If you are logging in from a European or Asian client, you will need to wait for this patch to release in that region before it can be installed. Additionally, if your home region is the Americas, you will be unable to log into Europe or Asia using Global Play after patch 1.0.3a is live until those regions have also patched.
