Diablo 3 patch 1.0.2a launching soon

The Diablo 3 servers are down as Blizzard is performing maintenance to launch patch 1.0.2a.

Attempting to login will result in Error 3003: "Unable to connect to the service or the connection was interrupted." You may also receive Error 37, which Blizzard said was a result of high traffic for Diablo 3's login.

Below is the change-log for patch 1.0.2a:


  • Tooltips for the following class abilities have been updated to reflect changes made in patch 1.0.2 and previous hotfixes:
  • Demon Hunter

    • Smoke Screen (Skill Rune – Lingering Fog)
  • Monk

    • Fists of Thunder (Skill Rune – Quickening)
    • Mantra of Healing (Skill Rune – Boon of Inspiration)
  • Wizard

    • Energy Armor (Skill Rune – Force Armor)
  • Nigel Cutthroat has recently fallen on hard times and will now drop lower quality items when slain
  • Gold and quest experience rewards for replaying "Heart of Sin: Get the Soul of Azmodan" have been reduced
