Diablo 3 patch 1.0.3b delayed, hotfixes for June 28, 2012

Bashiok originally stated that patch 1.0.3b would be out soon, as in this week, but it's been delayed due to development concerns. It's not uncommon for Blizzard to push back a patch release a week to address a problem and make sure it's ready, although it is rather uncommon for them to give any release date, even a week out.

It should be noted too that despite the community QQ over the patch's getting pushed back a week, this doesn't mean D3 is broken or that Blizzard isn't doing its job. In fact, the exact opposite is true -- Blizzard is just being damn sure things are OK before pushing it live.

But even though the patch got pushed back, hotfixes were applied that increased the drop rate quite a bit for inferno mode. Good news for all those farming!

Bashiok's statement as follows, along with the full list of hotfixes after the break.

Bashiok
In general we tend to not provide release dates or specific timeframes for patches due to the complexity of the updates, and the possibility that we'll discover an issue that keeps us from releasing it on time. We discovered a few such issues late into the testing of 1.0.3b, which means it won't hit this week as previously mentioned.

However, we know that a number of changes in 1.0.3b have been highly anticipated, and so we spent the better part of today pulling specific changes that did not run into testing issues out of 1.0.3b, and turning them into hotfixes. These include the Inferno drop increases among a couple others, and will be applied with off-peak rolling restarts tomorrow morning. We'll also be updating the June hotfix blog with specific changes (including new drop rates) tomorrow morning after we manage to wrangle up a cup of coffee.
