    PTR Patch and Leaderboard Wipe

    [caption id="attachment_379460" align="alignright" width="293"][​IMG] Meteor Rules! But only in fan art.[/caption]Blizzard continues working furiously right up to the deadline in their efforts to launch Patch 2.2.0 and Season Three weeks early. PTR Patch and Leaderboard Wipe:

    The PTR has been brought down for a short period of time to deploy several hotfixes. In addition, we will be wiping the following Seasonal and Non-Seasonal leaderboards for both Hardcore and Normal mode:

    • Wizard Solo
    • 2-player
    • 3-player
    • 4-player

    What's the Wizard issue that required a wipe of all leaderboards a Wizard might have impacted? A buff to defense and a big buff to Hydra damage due to bugs with Tal Rasha's new set bonuses. Click through for the PTR patch notes with full details.



    The below hotfixes are now live:

    General

    • Fixed a number of issues that would result in the game crashing (4/1)
      • Note: One of these fixes has reset the increased blood shard cap for players who have hit high Greater Rift levels. This is a PTR-only issue and can be resolved by completing another high-level Greater Rift.

    • Players who did not participate in a Nephalem or Greater Rift are no longer able to talk to Orek to close them (4/1)
    • The Greater Rift countdown timer should no longer overlap with NPC health bars (4/1)



    Items

    Broken Promises
    • Non-critical hits that occur while the 100% Critical Hit buff is active no longer count toward activating the buff again (4/1)
      • This is to prevent situations in which abilities that do not crit are able to provide 100% uptime of this buff


    • Tal Rasha's Elements
    • Fixed an issue where the 4-piece power was erroneously increasing Resistances by 200% instead of 100% (4/1)


      Raiment of a Thousand Storms
    • Fixed an issue where the 4-piece bonus would only charge 50 Spirit instead of the 75 Spirit indicated by the tooltip (4/1)



      Monsters
      Orlash - Rift Guardian
    • Orlash's melee attacks no longer inflict a healing reduction debuff (4/1)


      Fixed an issue where Exorcists would deal unusually high damage in Greater Rift Trials when two or more players are in the game (4/1)


      Barbarian

      Whirlwind
      • Rune - Dust Devils
        • Fixed an issue where tornados would not spawn if a Barbarian was too close to certain walls (4/1)



    • Wizard

      Hydra
    • Fixed an issue where Hydra was gaining a larger than intended bonus from the Tal Rasha's 6-piece (4/1)

    Poor Wizbears!

    They have more damage when skills are bugged......

    Have you hugged your nearest Wizbear today?

    Guess my Wizard won't be seeing any action this 'era' again. At least I can dust off my Barb and give my DH a rest for a little while.
