Witch Doctors who eagerly waited for the 1.03 Diablo 3 patch hit upon a awkward problem: they quickly discovered that their zombie bears were now unable to attack monsters on a slope. How this happened is a bit of mystery. Bears have necks, and there’s no reason to believe that zombie bears lose the use of their necks. Luckily, the issue has been fixed, and zombie bears are now able to look up. Blizzard have also reduced the normal durability wear and tear on equipped items – although they warn “durability loss as the result of normal combat is different from the 10% durability loss characters will incur when they die.”
Here are the full patch notes.
Zombie ChargerSkill Rune – Zombie Bears
Fixed a bug where Zombie Bears were unable to attack targets on slopes
Zombie Bears should no longer become stuck on objects with which they shouldn’t have collision
Equipped items will now take “wear-and-tear” durability damage at half the previous ratePlease note that durability loss as the result of normal combat is different from the 10% durability loss characters will incur when they die. Equipped items have always suffered durability loss while fighting, and we are simply slowing the rate at which the loss occurs.
Fixed a bug that was causing Unique monsters to not drop the appropriate amount of loot when slainFixed a bug with linking items with 3 gem sockets
It is no longer possible to create fake achievement links
Fixed a bug that was causing the “Switch Hero” button to occasionally disappear after leaving a game while in town
Fixed several gold and leveling exploits
Fixed several game and service crashes (for Mac and PC)
