We're evaluating things today. I don't know if I'll have an answer today, but we are kicking off full investigation into potential fixes.

Hey all,

We recently investigated reports of an issue involving Bone Ringer. As a result, we will be temporarily disabling the item’s Legendary power until a hotfix can be prepared to correct the issue. We will update this thread once the hotfix is live.

Special thanks to the players who reported this, and to everyone for their patience as we work on a fix.

It should be live on both PS4 and Xbox One, as well as PC. If you've tried rebooting the game / console already and that's still not the case, please let us know and we'll look into it.

Jumping in to confirm what Monteclaudio and others have noticed: we recently hotfixed the Wirt's Leg recipe. More details here.

Thanks everyone for your helpful reports and for your patience! :)
Hey all,

We recently hotfixed a bug affecting the crafting recipe for Wirt’s Leg. With this change, using the recipe will correctly produce a Legendary (rather than Magic) item which yields a unique material when salvaged. Old versions of the item will salvage into Arcane Dust instead.

If you’ve already given the Wirt’s Leg recipe to Haedrig, it will still appear to be a Magic item in your crafting list, but crafting a new one will yield a Legendary item as intended.

Thanks for your patience while we investigated this issue!
Nevalistis submitted Cow Pet?

Hijacking top comment. Hello, /u/Carlosguitar!

This is, indeed, a bug. We've got an investigation underway. The pet is most certainly intended to return for the event and we'll provide updates in this thread as soon as they are available.

Apologies for the confusion and inconvenience.

01/04/2018 07:47 AMPosted by MissCheetah There are hundreds of posts about this now. I am guessing it is a bug but we shall see.

That it is. We have an investigation underway to find the source cause.

Apologies for the inconvenience in the meantime. As soon as we have an update, I'll let you all know ASAP!
01/02/2018 01:45 PMPosted by Blackarrows One of the posts needs to be corrected, either this one is wrong or the blog post is.
The portal will either open on the 3rd at 4:00 pm pst or the 4th as stated here.

So, they're technically both right. I had the 4th in my head because the start time is programmed in UTC (midnight on the 4th). That means it actually begins on the 3rd in PST as a byproduct. Trust the post times in the blog at this point, as they were updated early today and triple-checked for accuracy!

Apologies for the confusion; this is why I rarely post from home without my usual access to resources. :) I just wanted to make sure folks knew we were aware of the miscommunication and that we would be fixing it.

Adventure Mode is required, but it can be done in both Seasonal and Non-Seasonal play.

PC and Console (PS4/Xbox One).

Just to confirm - the cultist event continues throughout the rest of the Darkening of Tristram event.

01/01/2018 07:10 AMPosted by MissCheetah Correction! As has been pointed out to me below - The few hours delay was only for the first year. This year and other years the Cultists will be there first for Jan 1-3. Portal opens after that so probably the 4th.

Saw the confusion pop up and wanted to hop in to reaffirm this! Apologies for not reiterating this information in the blog; we'll get that updated as soon as the rest of us are back in office.

Again, just to be clear: only the pre-cursor event (roaming cultists in Adventure Mode) is currently available. The portal to Old Tristram will open on January 4th.

Discord's overlay feature could be responsible.
From your submitted crash report:

"DBG-MODULE<60FB0000 0009d000 " DiscordOverlay.dll" "DiscordOverlay.pdb""

Try disabling or uninstalling Discord and re-test.

It could also be your AMD video drivers though I see you're using 17.12.1 for which I'm not aware of any problems right now.

Your particular error looks like it's due to your Nahimic sound app, probably the overlay it uses. Try disabling or uninstalling that first and then see if the game launches.

For the others with an issue with the 64 bit client not running, do the Full Screen Optimization disabling mentioned above but with a small change. You need to be adjusting the Compatibility tab under Properties for the Diablo III64.exe file in the main game folder's x64 folder, otherwise you're setting the 32 bit client executable which isn't what you need.

We have seen an increase of reports after updating to Windows 10 Build: 16299, that errors starting the game such as "Unable to initialize" or "Graphics driver not available at this time" can occur. I have 3 steps I'd like you to do before you retest running the game:

Step 1) Goto your Documents folder -> Delete the Diablo III folder at this location to clear the game's settings.

Step 2) Goto the Blizzard app -> Select the Diablo III tab -> Options -> Drop down to: Show in Explorer -> Open the Diablo III folder -> Right click on Diablo III.exe -> Properties -> Compatibility tab -> Check: Disable Fullscreen Optimizations. Apply and Ok. Do the same for Diablo III Launcher.exe.

Step 3) Right click on your desktop -> Select: Display Settings -> Change your Resolution to a notch down, apply and save the change. Run the game, it should run. If it does change your Operating System resolution back to normal, run the game again to update the game's resolution.


If the issue remains try playing in Selective Startup mode to shut down all background programs and avoid any conflicts. Make sure your display drivers for the system are fully updated if you need help with this step check out our support page Here.

Post up your Dxdiag within code blocks if the issue remains! Thank you. :)
I'd love to hear what the rest of the community is doing this holiday season - whether you celebrate or not, and whether it's in Sanctuary or not. :) These are the stories that often bring us together as people and not just faceless names on the interwebs.

As for myself, I usually spend Christmas Eve with my boyfriend's family (his stepmother has "claimed" that day as her own for family time). Then we'll be leaving straight from their house to travel to my brother's for Christmas Day. We'll be spending a few days there—I often don't get to see my family because we're all nomads and spread across the world. He's military and finally stationed somewhere relatively nearby, so for the first time in about a decade, I'll get to spend the holidays (at least a little) with some of my family. :)

Unfortunately, the travelling means very little Diablo time for me. I'll have to get back to the grind once I return home!

What there you did.

See it, I have.

Quick update: The original posted dates for the PS4 sale were incorrect. The sale will begin January 2 and last through January 9.

Apologies for the misinformation!

Aaaaand confirmed. The PS4 sale was pushed back to January 2 through January 9. Apologies for the incorrect information, and thank you so much for bringing this to my attention!

I'm checking in on this now; It looks like the PS4 sale might have been pushed back. Stay tuned.
