Diablo 3 Patch 1.0.8 Bug: Character Display

There are always some issues with new patches, and DiabloWikiv1.08 is no exception. The game features seem to be working, after their PTR testing, but many players are experiencing issue with logging in and with changing characters. Often with humorous visuals.

Lylirra: We’re currently looking into two issues that are affecting players who’ve patched up to 1.0.8:

  • Item Label Display is reverting back to “Push to Show” after changing it to another setting.
  • When trying to switch to a different character, the character model (including its class, gender, name, and banner) in the menu does not update, but equipped gear will. This appears to simply be a visual bug, as joining a game session will use the correct character.
  • We’ll be sure to provide an update in this thread once we’ve more information. In the meantime, thank you for your reports! To help keep the conversation streamlined (this will help us talk to you better, and vice-versa), we’re going to be locking and redirecting posts to this location.

    Another bug is that barbarian Inspiring Presence may or may not be affecting the barb himself. This was reported in the PTR forums as a bug, and is believed to be simply a tooltip/display issue, but it would be nice to have it confirmed. Is everyone but the barb getting the buff, or is the barb also getting it, too?
    Grimiku: Thanks for the report. We sent this up so it could be looked at as well. Of course, as soon as we have an update we’ll let you all know. Thanks again!

    Various players have submitted cool screens of the display bug, showing one character equipped with the gear from another character, and they’re good for a laugh. Two examples below; if anyone else has a good one put the link in comments and I’ll add to the gallery.

    1. I’ve seen this before on older patches… nothing new… its nothing to bitch about… sometimes graphics display drivers can show some funny shit like this too 😉

    2. That actually looks bad-ass. DH’s should get dual wield melee weapons, and give her melee skills/passives like in the beta. Ninja-style, yo!

      • This is where I believe Blizzard went wrong by allowing only Demon Hunters to use bows and crossbows only (because of the way skills work). It would have opened up interesting characters.

    3. 1 Year + 2 month PTR = BANG! WW always berserker shadows DHB SAVAAAAGE…and sad once again…

    4. Wow I took screenshots of this right as it came out to. I have some crazy insane shots, like my witchdoctor in barb gear dualwielding his weapons, holding my wizards wand and offhand, and holding a manticore with some nats gear on but the nats chest is glitched. I would gladly post these up here If the mods hit up my email and give me credit!!

      • Also, i might add that they look really badass I wish my witchdoctor looked like that naturally without a stat loss. Hes pimpin an IK chest, a mempo of twilight, and a bleeding weapon with echoing fury on the mainhand.
