What has Blizzard changed in those sneaky hotfixes for the newly released Diablo III? Have they slammed the nerf hammer too hard on something? Well now we can know.
There's an inherent spoiler danger with the changelog as some things refer to the storyline so don't go nosing beneath the spoiler warning if you want to remain ignorant to narrative.
Remember you were feeling glum that your attempts to resurrect fallen comrades couldn't be interrupted by attacks? Well Blizzard has answered your prayers. Hooray!
Here is the hotfix changelog posted by Blizzard via :
• Mehtan the Necromancer and his skeletons can no longer be used to kill other monsters which have been kited to their location before or after the “Restless Sands” event
• Players will now receive an error message when attempting to remove a gem from an item with no sockets (rather than disconnecting)
• Players will now properly have their casting interrupted when attacked while performing resurrect on a fallen group member
• Resolved over 30 game and service crashes affecting players
• Smoke Screen: Duration reduced from 2 seconds to 1 second (tooltip will still show 2 seconds)
• Skill Rune – Lingering Fog: Now increases the duration of Smoke Screen to 1.5 seconds (tooltip will still show 3 seconds)
Fists of Thunder

• Skill Rune – Tranquility: Duration of immunity granted to nearby allies from crowd control effects reduced from 2 seconds to 1 second
Mantra of Healing
• Mantra of Healing will now correctly provide only two times the base healing effect for the first 3 seconds after activation, down from four times the base healing effect (tooltip will still show the old value)
• Skill Rune – Boon of Protection: A maximum absorption amount has been set to 1000 Life. This skill will be redesigned in an upcoming patch.
