[blizzquote author='Blizzard' blue='http://www.diablofans.com/blizz-tracker/topic/250904-107-known-issues-list-updated-1-15-13/' battle='http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7592202049#1']]Hello everyone, and welcome to PTR Patch 1.0.7! Below you will find the Known Issues list for our 1.0.7 patch (patch notes are available here). Please do not report bugs that you see on this list as we already know about them, and help out other players reporting bugs by referring them to this list.
As a reminder, this list will not list every bug that is active in the 1.0.7 patch. What it is listing are issues that are active and confirmed as bugs by Quality Assurance. In addition, potential exploits and the like will never be listed here.
Please note that documented bugs may not always be fixed in the order in which they were reported. In some rare cases, we may not have a timeline for a when a bug will be fixed and some bugs may not be able to be fixed at all. If we are able to verify that a documented bug cannot be fixed, it will be removed from this list.
Thank you for your continued reports, and enjoy the Diablo III!!!

Demonic Essences and Treasure Goblins
At first Demonic Essences were not supposed to drop off Goblins. This has changed.
[blizzquote author='Blizzard' blue='http://www.diablofans.com/blizz-tracker/topic/250912-demonic-essence-question/#post4' battle='http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7592911607#4']After further consideration and discussion, we've decided to allow Treasure Goblins to retain their chance to drop a Demonic Essence. (Those goblins drive a hard bargain!)
Friend Invitations Being Looked At
The constant spam for some players coming from friend invitations are a very well known issue and a possible solution is at hand.
[blizzquote author='Blizzard' blue='http://www.diablofans.com/blizz-tracker/topic/250878-reducing-friend-invitation-spam/' battle='http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7591982115#1']We've recently seen a number of posts from players regarding friend invitation spam and how it's been affecting your online experience. We agree that it's an issue and have not only been looking at ways to improve the Friend Invitation system, but also how to handle all the existing spam.
To that end, going forward any outgoing friend requests from players who are reported for spamming invitations will be proactively deleted. While players may still receive some friend invitation spam here and there, this change should result in an overall decrease in the number of fraudulent friend requests that reach your Social Window. If you happen to receive a friend invitation that's spam, please continue to use the "Report Spam" option as normal so that our support staff can review the complaint.
I'm guessing it'll be more than one report though, correct? Hopefully more than a handful? This can very easily be abused if it's not, :/.
I'm super hesitant to provide that information (given that those details could be used to abuse the system), but suffice it to say that there are checks and balances in place. Simply reporting another player for Friend Invitation spam does not mean that all their invitations will suddenly disappear.
Like I said:
If you happen to receive a friend invitation that's spam, please continue to use the "Report Spam" option as normal so that our support staff can review the complaint.
University Relations Q&A
Interesting in joining the development teams of any Blizzard franchise? Look no further!
[blizzquote author='Blizzard' blue='http://www.diablofans.com/blizz-tracker/topic/251054-university-relations-qa/' battle='http://us.battle.net//d3/en/blog/8445112']If you're a student looking to break into the gaming industry, we're holding a live chat next Thursday with our University Relations team here on our official Blizzard game sites. They'll be fielding questions from how to build a portfolio, to what it's like to work at Blizzard, what qualifications we look for, and even how to best approach the internship program (submissions close January 31!).
Come back to this very article next week, on January 24, to take part in the live chat from 5:00 p.m. PST to 6:00 p.m. PST, and learn how to become a part of our team!
[blizzquote author='Blizzard']Marquise Gems Account Bound
Marquise gems are Account Bound, meaning you cannot trade them or list them on the Auction House. This is why you cannot search for them on the Auction House.
The plans are tradable, and I will enter a bug for them not being searched in the Auction House. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
End of Duels to Remove Debuffs
Thanks for the reports. In the next PTR patch (no ETA at this time), your hero will be fully healed and have all debuffs cleared from him when you leave the dueling area. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
On Angels and Alcohol
The PTR is public and open to everyone. Just keep in mind the normal rules of conduct and I imagine you'll be fine.
Anyone ever tell you that your avatar makes it look like a drunk--just swaying back and forth :-) Or is that indicative of your Holidays?
Floating is hard, okay?
Fair enough--I heard that in Sanctuary it is actually against the rules to fly while under the influence.
Does being drunk with power count? If so, I think certain members of the Angiris Council might be in trouble. >.>
I do not understand the Giveaway by being "active on the forum". I have been here like soooo long and never won because of just being active here. Where should people post to be in that contest.. Maybe the contest is already over?
