d3 Diablo 3: More Patch 2.4.0 Issues & Hotfixes

1 post in this topic

15508-diablo-3-more-patch-240-issues-hot

As the older bugs are getting fixed, new issues for Patch 2.4.0 keep appearing. Fortunately, the hotfixes are equally increasing in number.

 

A few days ago, we reported a list of known issues that have been around since Patch 2.4.0 hit the live servers. Since then, the official post with all the known issues has been updated. One of these issues involves a serious bug with Monk's Earth Ally, which makes the Monk lose half of his/her health each time he/she interacts with a Healing Well or performs a similar action. The issue was first spotted by Reddit. Here's the updated list with the known issues; we remind you that it doesn't contain all bugs that are ingame at the moment, but only the most important ones that the team plans to fix soon.

Combat

  • Monk - Mystic Ally: Interacting with a Healing Well, dropping or equipping items, or performing other similar actions can cause players to lose health equal to the health bonus provided by the Earth Ally.

 

Items

  • The Lianna’s Wings item model is incorrectly clipping into the player model while sheathed on the player’s back
  • The Custom Engineering Hellfire Amulet passive may stop functioning properly after a few minutes of play

Moreover, there is an issue that the community has noticed, but hasn't been addressed by the D3 team yet. Apparently, when you zone into Leoric's Manor from Halls of Agony level 1, you enter into the older version of the Leoric's Manor zone. This means that there are no Royal Quarters! You can check the relevant Reddit topic, which also provides video evidence of this bug.

 

Thankfully, the list of hotfixes is longer this time. The issue that made the power of the Carnevil Legendary Voodoo Mask not work has been fixed, to the relief of many Witch Doctors. Here's the full list with the hotfixes that went live the day before yesterday:

General

  • Fixed a crash that would occur when the Skeleton King attempts to continue to whirlwind after he has been defeated (1/20)
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent some players from logging in (1/20)

Wizard

  • Black Hole
    • Fixed an issue where enemies affected by both Black Hole - Event Horizon and Taunt would remain at 1 hit point and be unable to be killed (1/20)

Witch Doctor

  • Fetish Army
    • Fixed an issue where fetishes could stop casting Poison Dart while using the Carnevil Legendary Voodoo Mask (1/20)

Adventure Mode

  • Set Dungeons
    • Fixed an issue where the game could crash when a Set Dungeon begins, but there is not a valid portal saved (1/20)
    • Fixed an issue where taking fatal damage in a Set Dungeon could cause the Set Dungeon to be empty the next time it was entered (1/20)

There's a respective list of hotfixes for consoles, which can be found here. There have also been several reports for lag/performance issues by console players. The team is still investigating this; Kauza encouraged console players to post their feedback in a dedicated thread in the US official forums. The community manager especially asked players to submit more videos, since this would help the team resolve these issues faster.

We're continuing to investigate these issues and want to thank everyone who has contributed reports so far. We've been able to check a number of potential causes off of the list, but getting this to happen reliably on our end has proven difficult.

We'd like to make another request from players who are experiencing frame rate issues. Videos posted by players in this thread are giving us a much clearer picture of the different ways players are being affected, so we'd like to get a larger set of videos to analyze.

So, if you're affected and want to help us keep these investigations moving forward, please upload a video of the issues using the platform-specific share features for your console. Then, please post a link to that video in this thread.

Please also make note what type of game you're playing (Adventure Mode, Greater Rift, etc.), if you're in an offline or multiplayer game, and what difficulty your game is set to. If you've identified any other items, abilities, or circumstances that make the issues especially evident, please make note of those as well.

Thank you again for helping us gather information.

Lastly, EU players had noticeable problems with queue times, especially during the last weekend. The issue was vastly improved the next days, the reason being Blizzard deploying some extra hardware for the region. Cheers!

Hi everyone,

As you may know, some players have been experiencing brief queues when creating new games in Europe over the past few days. These queues can be necessary during times of high demand to ensure that all players have a smooth gaming experience, but they are obviously no fun.

We wanted to let you know that we’ve been working to reduce the queues by making additional resources available for players in Europe, and we’re continuing to monitor the situation and will add more hardware as needed.

Thank you all for your patience, and we hope you enjoy Patch 2.4.0 and Season 5.

      This thread is for comments about our Wizard Manald Channeling Build.

      Rainbow Portrait is coming to consoles with the patch that brings Seasons, The rest blue posts deal with The Barber, Juggernaut affix and the duration of the Darkening of Tristam event.
      Rainbow Portrait on Consoles
      The rainbow portrait isn't currently available on consoles. The implementation of portraits will come with the patch that brings Seasons to consoles (Season 10 maybe). Until then, you can earn portraits through the Darkening of Tristam event.
      Nevalistis
      So, with the 1.15/1.16 patch, will this portrait drop now on the consoles?
      Sorry for the delay in response, but I had to do some digging on this one. On console, Sir William does not currently drop the Whimsyshire portrait. The reason why is because full portrait integration isn't actually active yet for the Ultimate Evil Edition on PS4/XB1, though a couple of portraits can be earned through the Darkening of Tristram event (see here for more information on that). Full integration will be coming with the patch where Seasons become available on console.

      If this is something you guys would like to see in the future once portrait integration is in, I'll be happy to pass along that feedback to our console development team!

      The Darkening of Tristam Event Duration
      Another posts informs that the Darkening of Tristam event will last until the end of January and will return every January from here on out.
      Nevalistis
      When does the Darkening of Tristram event end?
      Just to confirm, The Darkening of Tristram event will last until the end of this month (January), and will return every January from here on out.

      The Barber Nerfs
      A player has submitted photographic evidence that The Barber has been nerfed. Here's a blue post related to it.
      Tyvalir
      I'm using it with a build I'm working on and I like it even though it's not doing insane amounts of godly damage like on the ptr.
      Glad you're liking the revamped Barber! As more people play with this item, there will doubtless be interesting new builds they create that are worth trying out.

      It's also worth noting that with the changes to certain items in patch 2.4.3, we've seen players talk about how these compare to the most powerful Legendary and Set items available in the game. 

      To clarify, our goal when updating Legendary items is to open up new build opportunities for players to explore. Along with this, it's important to note that not every item is designed to push the current best Greater Rift level. Some will be better for speed farming builds, and others will simply be a means to create fun novelty builds (like Manajuma's Way, for instance).

      There's more than one way to compare an item's relative worth, and more than one way to incorporate it into various builds. Even so, I'm glad to see people trying the new items out and sharing their experiences. It helps, for sure!
      Is it really not guaranteed elemental damage though?
      As for the weapon not rolling the additional damage modifier, that does seem buggy - I will pass this on, and thanks for reporting it!

      Juggernauts in Greater Rifts
      They now have lots of health and resistance to damage, intended? The information below was taken from the latest patch notes.
      2.4.3 Patch Notes - Juggernaut
      Juggernaut New enemy affix Juggernaut monsters are permanently immune to crowd control effects, but move more slowly than normal monsters Along with this change, enemies with this affix take 30% more damage from all sources Only a rare Elite enemy can be a Juggernaut (Source)
      There may even be a visual indicator for affixes on elites in the works!
      Tyvalir
      OK I got it - immunity to cc means a whole bunch of procs that raise damage or debuff won't work.
      Just wanted to clarify for those who haven't seen the new Juggernaut affix in-game or read our recent patch notes that this is correct. As with all enemy affixes, some will be easier for certain builds to handle while the inverse is true for others. 

      One of our goals when adding new enemy affixes is to broaden the types of enemy variety you see in the game and the kinds of challenges you'll face. This helps achieve both of those goals while (hopefully) encouraging you to think more tactically in certain cases as a CC-dependent character.
      Damn! Will have to actually look at affixes now - it would be nice to have a visual indicator on the elite.
      Totally fair feedback! I'm happy to pass this on and thanks for sharing it.
