Diablo 3 | Patch 2.3.0a Hotfixes Now Live

New hotfixes are up on live hitting Hellfire Amulets and hopefully fixing Witch Doctors so they can once again play with friends in multiplayer GRifts.

Leaderboards have also been cleared of players exploiting the Hellfire Amulet glitch. For more information of the glitch you can check out the official forum post here.

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

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.

    Chinese realms were given a bit of the 'ol ban hammer as well it seems. With those players who "abused" the Hellfire Amulet glitch or broadcasted it getting permabanned, and everyone else getting a warning or no penalty besides being wiped from the leaderboard. Not too bad if you were just looking to push for some extra loot for a few days.
