Beta Patch 15 this weekend


Big day for Diablo 3 news today, with release date announcement earlier today and now it seems we will get yet another Patch for the Beta. Jay tweeted earlier that the state of the game after Patch 14 is what they intend to ship with, so it will be very interesting to see what this Patch will bring.

We will bringing the Diablo III test servers down for maintenance at approximately 10:00 a.m. PST tomorrow morning for database updates and to launch the next beta patch. We anticipate that maintenance will conclude at approximately 10:00 p.m. PST on Friday, March 16.

While we are not planning to wipe characters with this patch, we will be resetting all auctions on both the gold and currency-based auction houses. If any changes are made during maintenance that may require a character wipe, we’ll be sure to provide an update in this thread.

Thank you for your patience! As always, patch notes will be posted here once the patch is live.

Stay tuned as we’ll keep you updated on everything Patch 15 as the news comes in, together with official and of course unofficial patch notes.

Quick update: Due to some additional fixes going into beta patch 15, we will indeed be performing a character wipe. Please note that this wipe will also affect gold, items, achievements, auctions, followers, and artisans.

  1. My guess would be that it’s another minipatch that fixes bugs rather then a major one… hope I’m wrong and they change skill level requirements again so we get to play with something new 🙂

  2. That’s not what Jay said exactly. Read the full quote and you’ll understand that he said : the skill and rune system in patch 14 is what they intend to ship, nothing else.

  3. New skill/rune interface please. The rune and skill systems can stay the way the are, just not the new interface.

  4. Blizzquote

  5. Does anyone know if blizzard will still be giving any opt in beta keys anymore or are they done ?

  6. I hope they add an option to be able to turn off those annoying “Massacre,” “Mighty Blow,” “Destruction” pop ups, they really take away from the atmosphere. I’m not terribly fond of the red screen glow when your health is low either, it’s very distracting. Also, instead of the Barbarian moon physics, maybe we could have Martian physics. I know they’re intended to make you feel god-like, but really, they’re just goofy.

  7. I’m reeeeally hoping this patch fixes the “loading twice stutter”. If it ships with that I am going to be pissed (but still die at the computer from exhaustion and malnutrition).

    • I always thought the stuttering problem was relating to texture loading but I haven’t heard anything of the “loading twice stutter.” Is there a post on that somewhere?

  8. Jay never said that patch 14 is what they intend to ship. You should improve your reading skills 🙂
