No Diablo 3 Patch 2.12 PTR… Yet

At Blizzcon the Blues made numerous mentions of the next patch going up for testing in the future. Josh Mosqueira went so far as to say “very soon” during Saturday’s panel. However, as we should all know by now, DiabloWikisoon is a special word when spoken by a Blizzard person, and while it sometimes does mean “soon” it never means “already.”

So don’t try to download from the PTR already, because it won’t work, and may lead to technical difficulties. No Diablo 3 Patch 2.12 PTR… Yet:

Bluescreen of death downloading PTR

I don’t think the PTR is available yet. When it is they will have a front page announcement on the website and will open the PTR forums.

MissCheetah is right, there is no PTR up at the moment.

Either way, you should be getting blue screen errors.

Let’s download BlueScreenView. BlueScreenView is a free program that scans all of the minidump files created during ‘blue screen of death’ crashes, and displays the information about all crashes in one table.

Here’s a link where that download can be found: C-Net – BlueScreenView

Once you have that downloaded and installed, open it and locate the most recent crash. Then provide me with the data located in the “Bug Check String”, “Bug Check Code”, and “Caused by Driver” columns for that crash.

New DH Set

New DH Set

The problem (?) with the PTR is when the patch content is more interesting than the current game. In recent weeks I’ve been playing mostly Demon Hunters on EU and US, but I’ve never enjoyed the DiabloWikiM6 Sentry playstyle. And after playing at least a dozen games through the Blizzcon 2014 demo with the amazing new Set enabling the super-fun Multishot DH build.. I just want to wait for the PTR so I can start working to find those new set items to enable that build for (semi) real.

And maybe find a new Gungdo Gear, with the incredible contagious Exploding Palm proc making a Monk once again worth playing.

Anyone else got a PTR itchy?

  1. I am actually expecting to find out everything new about the wizard and WD.. especially the now WD-specific Wormwood staff that continuously uses locust swarm.

  2. Where's your part 2 of the interview?

  3. Can't wait to get my hands on the wizard set. Sounds like everything I always dreamed a wizard would be like.

  4. Been playing since the start of D3SE1 and now I’m bored. More content please and thank you. Back to D2 HC for awhile. USEAST FTW!

  5. I basically can't play Diablo 3 after Blizzcon announcements. Everytime I log in I just can go and play for 5 minutes mostly, because now everything you do just doesn't matter, all the gear will be obsolete no matter what. I just need something fresh and the ptr will provide that [finally]. I just hope it will be released this week.

  6. the ptr can't get here soon enough for me.

  7. I'm itchy for the interview PART DEUX!!! 😉

  8. yep, I play all PTR’s, bring it on.
