Blizzard confirms hotfix for Diablo 3 Error 3006

Just hours after the launch of Diablo 3, players have already discovered a game breaking bug.

Users have reported being booted out of Diablo 3 servers after interacting with the Templar follower, who you meet early in the game.  The problem appears to trigger when you equip the Templar with a shield.

Following that interaction, users then receive the Error 3006 message and are unable to log-in.  Some players have reportedly been locked completely out of their account.

Blizzard has since confirmed a hotfix for those experiencing Error 3006 is on the way.  They didn't give an estimated time however.  Until then, for those of you still able to play, do not interact with the Templar.  We'll be sure to update you when the hotfix has been implemented.
