Known Issues in Day 1 Patch 1.0.1

Even with so much time for Blizzard to polish the game, we still find some minor problems straight off the bat in the Day 1 Patch. Interesting that we see issues in this list that were present in the Beta and still not fixed like the “Running programs that put an overlay over Diablo III (such as Mumble, Xfire, and MSI Afterburner) can cause Diablo III to crash” for some players.

In the list of very pressing issues are:

  • “You cannot list equipped items that have been bought from a vendor.”
  • “Damage over time debuffs are not benefiting from items that grant crit chance.”

These issues must be fixed very quickly.

Hello everyone, and welcome to Sanctuary! Below you will find the Known Issues list for our 1.0.1 patch. Please do not report bugs that you see on this list as we already know about them, and help out other players reporting bugs by referring them to this list. Thank you!


      • The description of the Feat of Strength for “One of the Chosen” does not specifically state that it was granted to Closed Beta players, not all Beta players.
      • The description of the achievement “Why’d It Have To Be Snakes?” is misleading.
      • The description of the achievement “Crispy Critters” implies that all critters are found in one zone, but they are not. Good luck finding them!

Auction House

      • You cannot list equipped items that have been bought from a vendor.

      • It is possible to get ERROR 37 (The servers are busy, please try again) when logging in if the servers are under heavy stress. This error literally means that the servers are busy and that you should try again, so please try again in a minute or so!
      • Very quickly entering, leaving, and switching chat channels over and over can cause a player from getting locked out of chat channels.
      • It is possible for a friend to be on your friend’s list with no name if that friend has a BattleTag but has never logged into Diablo III and is offline.
      • Changing your account’s Parental Controls while you are in Diablo III can disconnect you from Diablo III.

Workaround: Exit Diablo III before changing Parental Controls.


      • Damage over time debuffs are not benefiting from items that grant crit chance.
      • The resurrection animation speed is being calculated by the player’s attack speed. It actually should be a set amount across all players.


      • Act 2 – Players who cast Town Portal while standing in a tar pit will cause the tar pit slowing debuff to stay on your character until you leave the game or manually walk into and out of a tar pit.


  • The gold dropped from Treasure Goblins can be picked up by all members of the party. Items dropped by the Treasure Goblins are still individual player drops.
  • It is possible for Champion-class monsters with the Waller affix to cast their walls at their location rather than at the player’s location.


  • The total life for Followers is rounding incorrectly and is off by 1.

Starter Edition

  • When a Starter Edition character hits level 13, the experience bar will read 0/0. If the player upgrades, they will start a 0 experience towards level 14.


    • It is possible for your cinematics to stutter and not play well if you begin playing Diablo III immediately when reaching Yellow Data.

    Workaround: Exit Diablo III and fully patch your game. Your cinematics should play fine then.

    • If the user has any connections configured in “Dial-up and Virtual Private Network settings” and they’re set to “Dial whenever a network connection is not present”, the install won’t proceed past 10%.


  • Running programs that put an overlay over Diablo III (such as Mumble, Xfire, and MSI Afterburner) can cause Diablo III to crash. Use these overlays at your own risk.


  • The Restore Hero button does not become available after deleting a hero until leaving and returning to the Select Hero page.
  • Game client window becomes unresponsive when a dialog box is opened in the background.

    1. Usual stuff. I suspect we’ll be hit with a bunch of patches in quick succession over the first few weeks.

    2. Hmm, so people who are waiting for the game to arrive on the 15th can play the starter edition at 00:01? If that’s the case then its awsome, hopefully you can add a Guest Pass after you reached lvl 13 so you can play till 8~9 am.

      • I tought I saw a blue post quote from the blizzard polish forum saying that guest pass have the same restrictions, aka max lvl 13 and can’t go beyond skeleton king.

        I’m actually surprise to see D3 Starter Edition enabled on my bnet account right now. I hope that mean I can play at midnight while waiting for my CE. Also I dont have the annual pass, maybe they gave the starter edition to all people in the closed beta if anyone  can confirm. 

        • I don’t see it enabled over here…
          and wasn’t in the closed beta, so I guess that is it then. 

        • You are right, I have a starter edition availible instead of the beta profile ( when beta/PTR profiles from other Blizzard games are still there, I have a Cataclysm beta account even though that was 2 years ago), so I guess I’ll be able to get level 13 on all classes before I get my CE from….

    3. Sooo, am I in some kind of Twilight zone? I’ve read these several times over and I still don’t get how do we have a day one patch 1.0.1 three days before… day one?

      • No the patch will be out when you install the game but they put up the known issues already and patch note will not be so far away

        • This may be a silly question, but if they already know the issues, why don’t they solve at least some of the minor ones? Isn’t this like saying, “tomorrow it’s going to rain” and then going outside wearing t-shirt?

          • Before you can patch new content out to live players, you have to get each of the changes tested, as well as running a smoke test on the rest of the game to ensure you didn’t break any of the existing content. When they fix even 1 small thing, they have to create a whole new build of the game, so usually they wait on minor issues and patch those fixes out at the same time as the larger fixes, as it’s more efficient that way.

            • Yeah.  Patches for even extremely minor issues often break other things and need to be tested thoroughly.  

      • Also, they probably don’t want to mess around too much with the final stable build. You wouldn’t want them to screw up the launch just because of a minor text change do you? 😛

        Once everything is stable and had been launched successfully in a Live environment, then they can work on the patches properly… 

    4. Crispy Critters?  Finding animals?  AWESOME.
      Tar Pits?  AWESOME. 
      Confirmation of Starter Edition? AWESOME way to hook friends on the crack. 

      I also see that the Mac slowdown is no longer on the list.  Bravo Blizzard… otherwise I had no solid mobile option. 

    5. Wait, there’s a Starter Edition?! Hmm, that might be how I can convince more of my friends/family to pick the game up.

      Get ’em hooked on the cheese; stay for the wine. (c) 2012, dragon457.


    6. Damn ! My futureshop won’t do a midnight launch. I have to wait until 8 a.m of may 15th.

      • If it is like WoW, you will be on a different server, which keeps you from trading items.

      • i had starter edition before i purchased dl version… now standard is visible… starter is no longer visible…

      • “Mac

        Game client window becomes unresponsive when a dialog box is opened in the background.”

        I laugh at you, Mac users.

    7. Not a biggie, will play on windows till Mac bugs have been fixed. too bad no Xfire…

    8. Don’t forget ATI GPU issues. I have a 6770 and it worked fine in the early beta but I didn’t even load up d3 beta towards the end. Hope it works fine on the 15th.

    9. Damage over time debuffs are not benefiting from items that grant crit chance.

      Sweet, Blizzard isn’t completely bonkers. Haunt, etc. will no longer be obsolete as damage dealers late game once they fix this.
