Earlier this week, Diablo 3 players stumbled upon a bug that let Wizard characters shrug off damage. Blizzard has since fixed the problem but now there's another problem.
"We are currently rolling out a hotfix for a recent bug regarding invulnerable Wizards," said a Blizzard forum post late last night.
