Diablo 3 Patch 1.0.2b Released, Fixes Barbarian Crashes
Blizzard has pushed out another small patch for Diablo 3. Patch 1.0.2b is now available for download in the Americas. It should hit Europe and Asia soon as well.
This update will be welcomed with open arms by Barbarian players. Before the patch, certain combinations of skills kept triggering each other's critical strikes over and over. It sounds awesome, but this actually caused crashes. The patch hopefully prevents these issues for good.
The patch also makes another convenient tweak to the auction house. You can now sell damaged items to other players. What's more, they'll be repaired automatically when purchased. If you're a very active auctioneer, this could save you a good amount of gold over time.
Note that the delay between the American and European/Asian launch of this patch will affect Global Play. If your home region is the Americas, you won't be able to play in the Europe or Asia regions until the patch is implemented there. Also, you won't be able to install the patch onto a European or Asian client even if you attempt to play in the Americas.
The full patch notes for 1.02b are below. Blizzard made no mention of maintenance so you should be able to jump in and start playing as soon as you finish downloading it.
