Wear-and-tear durability loss decreased in Patch 1.0.3a

Blizzard published the notes for Patch 1.0.3a, which will be up tomorrow after the scheduled maintenance. Fixed are the durability losses for fighting without dying as well as the Zombie Bears skill of the Witch Doctor, which previously experienced a bug that made it nonfunctional.

The change to wear-and-tear durability damage should solve the problem of players perpetually losing big amounts gold in repairs despite staying alive through the whole time.

Diablo III Patch 1.0.3a – v.1.0.3. 10235


Witch Doctor

Bug Fixes

Zombie Charger
» Skill 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 rate

» Please 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.
