    Beta Patch 13 - Wizard Spells
    We have a quick look at each of the spells/runes the wizard has available this time around in patch 13

    Has this been applied to the beta ?
    I believe it will be in the next Beta patch, but please don't ask me when it's getting released, I don't know. :) (Source)

    All damage. There's a Physical Resist stat specifically for physical. (Source)

    Bash, can you clarify my concerns here?
    If boss runs are viable they'll become the best way to play the game again. We want people out and exploring. (Source)

    Huh? who else should know? sorry that and some other stuff looks like no one knows anything. :)
    We don't know specific beta patch times/dates very far ahead of time. We push them as soon as they are ready. (Source)

    Why don't you talk about something people care about like how your damn weekend was?!
    My weekend was pretty good. Lot of work on the game mostly. (Source)

    This is a follow-up from this thread. If you are still getting ERROR_315300 and it is not because of an incorrect account name, password, or extra spaces in either of those, please include your information here. In addition, I need your D3Debug.txt files. Here is how to get them:

    1. Launch D3 Beta.
    2. Reproduce this bug.
    3. As soon as you get the error, exit the Beta.
    4. Go to the main folder where you installed D3 Beta.
    5. Open the Release folder.
    6. Copy the D3Debug.txt file to your desktop.
    7. Open the file in Notepad and edit out your e-mail address.
    8. Upload the edited file to pastebin.com
    9. Link the file back here.

    Thank you!

    Update:
    Hey guys,

    This is just to let you know that we are still hard at work on the problem. Your information has helped a lot, so we are checking out just what is wrong with our authentication servers.

    Glad to see there is going to be another beta patch. Hopefully they may change some of the new skill UI after all. And doubling the mobs damage should quiet some whiners.

    Out of the 115k+ invites that have gone out via contsts/opt in, it still feelis like less then 50 people are on at all times, anyone else notice this? I go in LFG channel and only 4 people are in there....4! I know there are other channels, but jesus 4? out of 115k? something just seems wrong to me.
    I just want a little bit of tenderness :(

    First: out of those 100k X amount of them dont even know their account is activated
    Second: Y amount of them play once and see whats its like then dont play again
    Third: Z amount of them are busy playing and not sitting in a chat room of the beta
    Fourth: C amount of them can not even login due to the error listed above
    Fifth: R amount of them may not be able to play due to computer specs (the key ones)

    You get the idea =P

    The chat channels are not something I would go off of.

    YES! wait double the damg? idk that sounds good and all, but if the mob do 1 damg and double that is only two. lol
    Though, here is to hoping they will dominate the group. :D
  • #10
    I wonder what other changes are lurking in the wings for patch 14... Hopefully a replacement to the terrible patch 13 skill UI.

    Double damage seems a little bit wierd, i haven't died more than once yet in beta, and that was in weeping hollow trying to do a naked iron man run with barbarian, bash with fists only got me so so far...

    About the ERROR_315300. There is some issue preventing the beta servers from updating some users user names. In some cases the beta server has a user name stored that was used several months to more then a year ago. If you are getting this error and can't login, try changing your login name to every previous e-mail you have used before (you need access to the e-mail accounts you try of course). As soon as you get the confirmation mail you can try logging in and will know if that e-mail worked or not. Changing password works as it should and doesn't make any difference what you have, it's just your current user name needs to match whatever old one is stored on the beta server for the authentication to work.

    ERROR_315300 is a general authentication failed error, so this solution might not work for everyone, but it have worked for a lot of people.

    Doubling mob damage during early levels, probably the most productive change this entire beta. Took them long enough. Maybe normal won't be a several act long tutorial afterall. Diablo willing...
    Some people tell me I'm going to hell. I just let them know that I've already packed my bags!

    Actually, I'm sure there will be other Blizzard employees, not just Bashiok :P. Though I have to say, I didn't even thought, that they will announce aníthing on cebit, so not a big shock.

    I know what you mean - I have joined around 100 pub games, and have yet to be in a game with more than just me, and 1 other guy (Except in cases where I specifically join a game from someone in my friends list)

    Often (Regardless of the time of day or night) searching for a Skeleton King game lets the timer hit 0, and I create the game myself, and do a full run without another player joining (And yes, it's public)

    Let me do a quick test...

    Well, Battle.NET is currently down - Heh :P
