Patch 2.1 is a Big Install, Plus Stormshield Bug

diablo 3 patch 2.1.0 detailsTwo late night Blue posts from the EU, with useful Patch infos. Diablo 3 Patch 2.1 is a Big Install.

Vaneras: Patch 2.1.0 is on its way, and we wanted to give you all a quick heads up about the size of this patch and the anticipated time required to fully apply it.

While the patch itself is not very large (300 MB), it will be making several changes to the game files stored on your computer. As a result, the “Applying Patch” phase may take up to 30 minutes to finish once the patch has been downloaded.

As a quick FYI, we wanted to make you all aware of a bug going live in patch 2.1.0 that will cause the Legendary shield, Stormshield, to display incorrect affix rolls.

For those of you who have a Stormshield and update the game to patch 2.1.0, the shield will appear as though its stats have been rerolled, even though the stats themselves have not actually changed. (Exception: Any affixes which are enchanted will not be affected and will display as normal.)

While this is a display issue only, we have temporarily disabled Stormshield from dropping until the bug can be fixed. With this, when the bug is fixed, your Stormshield will again show the correct stats as they were before patch 2.1.0 launched.

We will be correcting this bug in a future client patch (unfortunately it cannot be hotfixed), but do not have an ETA to share at this time. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused and thank you for your patience!

Getting a head start on the known issues, there.

  1. Will we be able to download the patch before the maintenance is done? I want to take advantage of my fast work internet while I am here.

    • Haven't seen any evidence that this can be done, the battlenet app doesn't seem to be aware yet of the patch here (I killed it and restarted to be sure)

      • In the past, patch files have been pushed out before the game servers are back up. I've been relaunching every hour, nothing yet.

  2. 300MB… i was thinking more.

    • I guess since there’s not much new in terms of graphical assets, that this would account for the smaller size for a patch that otherwise changes/adds so much. Greed and the Cesspools are the only new areas, and the rest is mostly new UI elements and stuff that runs on the servers.

      That’s my guess anyways. 🙂

  3. I am downloading the patch now, if any are wondering if it's available.

  4. Nothing yet here in this part of EU (DK)

  5. Won’t EU be after maintenance tomorrow? I hope not…

  6. Oh right. its tuesday. New workhours so not keeping track of what day it is other than "friday = weekend"

  7. Well my patch is downloaded and I'm ready to go. Just waiting for Bliz to turn on the server.
