With Patch 2.4.0 hitting the servers last Wednesday and Season 5 going live last Friday, we've had five days to enjoy the new Diablo 3 update. However, as it usually happens when a major patch is deployed, there have been a few bugs.

 

We already covered the changes to inspecting players: the Inspect button is gone and it has been merged with the View Profile. Wyatt Cheng assured that this is intended and not a bug.

 

What is a bug though, according to Wyatt, is the "mechanic" that allows Barbarians to cancel their Furious Charge, thus increasing its overall damage output. The bug has been around since Patch 2.2, but the team didn't want to change it mid-season. They also didn't have enough time to fix it before Season 5, so the bug will be staying around for a while. It will be fixed later on, but for now Barbarians can enjoy creatively using this mechanic.

Hey Barbarian friends,

For those who don’t know, it is currently possible in the live game to cancel the Furious Charge animation by moving, allowing you to start another Furious Charge slightly earlier and resulting in a damage increase. Some players have wondered if this is a bug or a feature.

This is a bug, and not a new one. It was a result of some of the optimizations we made to Furious Charge in Patch 2.2, when we were working to make using this skill smoother, more responsive, and allow you to hit monsters more easily than before. While we would like to fix this, we have a long-standing philosophy to avoid making changes (even bug fixes) that could cause a class to perform worse than before during a season. Due to the nature of the change needed, we cannot fix it before the start of season while still ensuring Furious Charge retains its current level of power.

So, for Season 5, Barbarians who enjoy the trick and want to play around with using the animation cancelling should feel free to do so. For those who don’t enjoy that style of play, there are many other builds that are fun to use and highly effective. We will fix this bug in a future patch and, when we do, we will certainly re-examine the power level of Furious Charge and the Raekor set relative to other sets across all classes at that time.

Another noticeable bug is the display issue with Achievement Toasts, the ingame pop-ups you get when you complete an achievement. While the achievement is rewarded normally and can be viewed in the Achievements tab, the pop-up itself may stop appearing, thus leaving you clueless if you happen to get an achievement. The issue has yet to be resolved.

There is currently an issue impacting what we call Achievement Toasts – the large, flashy pop-ups that alert you that an achievement has been earned during gameplay. Under some circumstances, these Achievement Toasts will not appear for players as they complete the requirements for achievements.

This issue affects only the Achievement Toast itself. The achievement will still be earned and can be viewed elsewhere in the game.

We are currently investigating a fix and hope to have it ready soon.

Below, you can also see a list of known issues from the relevant thread in the official forums. The list doesn't include all bugs ingame at the moment, only the most important ones that the team has been keeping track of and intends to fix soon.

Achievements

  • Achievements that are tracked with counters or multiple criteria checkboxes can visually "reset" when players enter a new game session.
  • Workaround: This is a visual bug only. Completeing more objectives or criteria towards the completion of the achievement will cause your actual progress to reappear for a time

Items

  • Enemies affected by Black Hole with the Event Horizon rune while the wizard has the Boyarsky’s Chip gem equipped may become stuck at 1hp and become unable to be killed

 

 

  • The Lianna’s Wings item model is incorrectly clipping into the player model while sheathed on the player’s back

 

Set Dungeons

  • Set Dungeon failed messages will spam players continually after failing the “Maintain Sweeping Wind” objective in the Dungeon of the Monkey King’s Garb

(source)


Workaround for Black Screen in Desolate Sands/Act II

  • Some players using AMD Radeon video cards may experience a black screen when entering the Desolate Sands zone in Act II
  • WORKAROUND: AMD has released a new 15.9 driver that is confirmed to resolve this issue. However, this driver is still a BETA driver and may have stability issues or other bugs. Please see our post here for more information.

Thankfully, there have been some hotfixes in the past 3 to 4 days. I remember seeing my Diablo 3 client downloading a small update at least once, so all these hotfixes should be in the game at the moment. Here they are:

Sorry in advance, I know this is probably the wrong place to post this, but do you think that all of the 'end game' builds by Deadset are equally viable? Or are some of them more powerful than others? Is it possible to get a tier list as to what builds are stronger than others?

Also might be worth it to state if some builds are easier than others to complete, based on how hard it is to get certain items or some items might be harder to get the right stats or rolled correctly.

So far I have been building a jade build and a thorns build following your end game guides to great success, thanks for all your hard work!

Hey.

 

I've had the same concern as you regarding the difficulty up to which our builds can go to, since it is not currently stated. I've passed it along to the big boys and they'll see what to do.

 

For now, my guess would be that they are not all equally viable. A good place to check the viability of each build would be their respective topic in our Diablo 3: Guides forum.

 

Thanks for your feedback and hopefully we'll have an update about this soon!

      It's that time again as there's a new season looming and the current one ends, with only 2 weeks left in Season 13! As usual there's a little break between them as everyone struggles to fit 2 entire stashes into one on the non-seasonal side of things and 14 starts on June 15th (which is just annoyingly confusing)!

      Here we are again, nephalem. As we prepare to close out another Season in Diablo III, it's time to take a moment to remember what you have achieved and ensure that you're ready for the next.
      If you haven't experienced the end of a Season, there's a lot to know about what happens to your gear, your progress, and your characters. Don't fret! We're here to give you a full overview of what to expect when the current Season ends and the next one begins.

      If you've played through a Season before, you know that all the gold, gear, and Paragon experience you earned don't just disappear. But what exactly happens to all that hard-earned progress when a Season ends? The short answer is that you get to keep just about all of it.
      Here's a list of all the rewards from this Season you can expect your non-Seasonal heroes to enjoy:
      Heroes
      Seasonal heroes will be converted to either non-Seasonal Normal or Hardcore mode heroes, as appropriate. There's no need to delete any characters to make room for them; your Seasonal heroes will continue to use the same slot they currently occupy in your roster after the rollover. You’ll also be able to use Season Rebirth to convert any non-seasonal character into a Seasonal level 1 character once the next Season begins. Gold
      Any gold you earn during the Season will transfer to your non-Seasonal heroes. Paragon Experience
      The total amount of Paragon experience earned is the amount that rolls over, but not the raw total Paragon levels that you gained. For example, if your Seasonal heroes reached Paragon 300, and your current non-Seasonal heroes are already Paragon 400, your new non-Seasonal Paragon level will still be less than Paragon 700, since Paragon levels require more experience to earn the higher you go. Blood Shards
      Much like how it works with gold, any Blood Shards you have available at the end of the Season will transfer to your non-Seasonal heroes. If your non-Seasonal heroes are currently at the Blood Shard cap, any Blood Shards you earn once the Season ends will temporarily ignore the cap. You can spend these at your leisure; however, you can’t pick up any additional Blood Shards until you are below the current cap. Items
      Items that are currently equipped on a hero or in that hero's inventory will stay on that hero as it moves to a non-Seasonal game mode. Items that are in your Seasonal stash will be sent through the in-game mail system to your non-Seasonal heroes. These items can be claimed by any non-Seasonal hero up to 30 days from the time you first log in after the Season ends. To access these items on PC, enter a game and hit the Mail icon located in the lower left corner of your screen to open your inbox. Console players can do the same by visiting the mailbox found in any town hub. If you’ve unlocked Primal Ancient items by completing Greater Rift 70 on a Seasonal hero, you’ll also be able to obtain them on non-Seasonal heroes after the Season ends (if you have not previously unlocked them for non-Seasonal heroes).  Artisan Progress and Recipes
      If your Seasonal Artisans are a higher level than your non-Seasonal Artisans at the end of the Season, their level will transfer to your non-Seasonal Artisans. Any recipes you have on your Seasonal Artisans that are not available to your non-Seasonal Artisans will be transferred as well. Shared Stash
      Any Shared Stash slots or tabs you purchase during a Season that are not currently available to your non-Seasonal heroes will be transferred accordingly. Achievements
      Any achievements earned or achievement progress made during the Season are automatically applied to your non-Seasonal achievement profile. This happens in real time and does not require the Season to end first. Your achievement point total is also updated appropriately throughout the Season. Kanai's Cube
      After the Season rollover, any Legendary Powers unlocked using Kanai’s Cube on a Seasonal Character will become available on non-Seasonal characters as appropriate. At the start of a new Season, Seasonal characters will not have access to any Kanai’s Cube Legendary Powers unlocked during previous Seasonal or non-Seasonal play. Season 13 Rewards
      All players who reach level 70 on a hero in Season 13 will unlock exclusive transmogrification appearances for helm and shoulders. These appearances will unlock immediately upon hitting level 70 on a Seasonal hero, and will be available on Seasonal and non-Seasonal heroes alike (even before the Season concludes). To access your new appearances, simply visit Myriam the Mystic and open the Transmogrification tab. Players can also earn portrait frames and an exclusive cosmetic pet for completing various chapters of the Season Journey. Note: All heroes, rewards, and progress will convert to the appropriate non-Seasonal game mode. Any items, gold, Paragon experience, achievements, Artisan levels or recipes, Stash space, and Blood Shards earned on Normal Seasonal heroes will transfer to your Normal non-Seasonal heroes when the Season is over. Similarly, anything you’ve earned on Hardcore Seasonal heroes will transfer to your Hardcore non-Season heroes instead. 
      Season 13 Conquests
      Unlike other rewards, Conquests do not roll over at the end of the Season (because they aren’t available to non-Seasonal heroes). This also means that your non-Seasonal Achievement point total will not be affected by any Conquests you earn during a Season.

       Season 13 Leaderboards
      Once the Season ends, all Seasonal Leaderboards will be wiped and you’ll be unable to attain new Leaderboard ranks until the next Season begins. The results of the previous Season’s Leaderboards will remain available for viewing in-game for PC players. Once the new Season begins, PC players can view a handy dropdown menu to compare current and previous Season records. Similarly, console players will be able to view their rank for the previous Season.
      PC players can also view current and past Leaderboards on our website.

      In addition, the non-Seasonal Greater Rift Leaderboards on PC will be wiped sometime after the end of the Season. However, players on this platform can immediately compete in the currently active Era with their non-Seasonal heroes (including those who have just rolled over), and will not have to wait for the start of the next Season. 

      Season 13 End & Season 14 Start Dates
      You can sort through your Seasonal rewards and review your progress on the Leaderboards between Seasons. It’s a great time to reflect on the accomplishments you’ve made and enjoy the fruits of your pre- and post-Season loot hunts!
      Season 13 will end on the following dates:
      North America: Sunday, June 3 @ 5:00 p.m. PDT  Europe: Sunday, June 3 @ 5:00 p.m. CET Asia: Sunday, June 3 @ 5:00 p.m. KST Season 14 will begin about two weeks afterward on the dates below:
      North America: Friday, June 15 @ 5:00 p.m. PDT  Europe: Friday, June 15 @ 5:00 p.m. CET Asia: Friday, June 15 @ 5:00 p.m. KST For time zone assistance, check out this handy guide. We look forward to seeing you in Season 14!
      Ready for the Rollover?
      How have you fared during Season 13? What was the highest Greater Rift you reached? Did you complete any Conquests? Any other exciting accomplishments to share?
