A bunch of hotfixes and bug kills today, as they fine-tune everything in D3v2 just in time for Reaper of Souls to completely overwrite it all in just a few days.

    Patch 2.0.3 Diablo 3 Hotfixes – Updated 3/21


    • Resolving a number of issues related to powers that apply stacking damage shield buffs, such as Spectral Blade and Magic Weapon
    • These abilities should now provide the appropriate amount of shielding, absorb the correct amount of damage, last the appropriate length of time, and will no longer break prematurely when hit by multiple enemies at the same time.
    • Reduced the amount of damage reflected by certain monster abilities.
    • The “Swing That Bloody Hammer!” achievement no longer requires crafting an item with Life Steal to complete.
    • The “Gorging the Forge” achievement no longer requires crafting an item with Magic Find to complete.
    • Players should no longer be incorrectly informed that they have earned a bonus chest after failing a Cursed Chest wave event.
    • Players matchmaking for Any Quest (or All Acts) games when no existing games are available should no longer receive an error.
    • Skills that deal Physical damage should no longer benefit from items that increase elemental skill damage.
    • Fixed an issue where players would occasionally be unable to complete the Skeleton King fight, which would block progression.
