    Blizzard has posted lists of hotfixes already made (and coming soon) to the Reaper of Souls beta and the Diablo 3 PTR. These are all related to various bugs that must be stomped out for the greater good, and there are plenty for the stomping: I had a number of crashes and other issues I’d never seen before playing RoS after the patch, though there was a lot of added content as well, hence more opportunities for things to break.

    Incidentally, there are a lot of minor and some major changes in RoS with the patch, mostly to game balance, item drop rates, etc. We’ll post an article on those later today. For now, here are Blizzard’s to-be-updated hotfix lists. Diablo 3 PTR first:

    [UPCOMING HOTFIXES]

    No upcoming hotfixes to report at this time.

    [LIVE HOTFIXES]

    General:

    • Hellfire plans no longer cost Blood Shards and should now cost gold.
    • Monster density in Act I has been adjusted.
    • An issue where crafting certain items caused the server to crashed has been resolved.
    • Resolved an issue where the proc from Odyn Son could proc from itself.
    • Items above level 60 will no longer drop for players on the PTR.
    • Players can now gain Paragon levels on the PTR
      • Please note: Experience gained for paragon levels will not be reflected in the XP bar. When you gain a Paragon experience level, you will see a toast notification and the level-up explosion. In addition, the Paragon experience UI button appears, allowing players to spend their Paragon points. This is currently the only way to access the Paragon points UI. We are aware of this issue, and it will require a patch to fully resolve.

    Monk:

    • Serenity – Tranquility: An error will no longer occur when a player takes damage while Serenity – Tranquility is active.

    Click through for the Reaper of Souls beta hotfixes, most of which are identical to the PTR issues.

    Below you will find a list of hotfixes recently applied or coming soon to the Closed Beta that address various bugs and mechanic tweaks.

    These hotfixes should not require you to download a new patch for the PTR. Some of the hotfixes below will go live the moment they are implemented while others may require the restart of the game to go into effect. Please keep in mind that some issues cannot be addressed without a client-side patch. Also note that changes to certain abilities will not be reflected in its tooltip until a patch is issued.
