Hotfixes on Live and PTR

A couple hotfixes were pushed both on the 2.1.2 Live servers, as well as on the 2.2 PTR servers. The live ones are meant to fix Bul-Kathos Wedding Band ring snapshooting some bonuses, and Demon Hunters and Severs being an insane combination. The PTR fixes are just for a few skills that were benefitting twice the same activatable effect.

Protoss Probe Pet

We recently featured a couple new textures datamined from the PTR servers - one of them being a Starcraft Probe pet. A staff member recorded footage of it, and it looks awesome - check it out below.


Zero Empathy GR 63

We previously mentioned the synergy between Demon Hunters and the legendary Sever, recently hotfixed. It turns out clan Zero Empathy cleared a Greater Rift 63 with said strategy, and grabbed the 4-man worldwide rank #1 at Season 2. One of their members, Empyrian Gaming, uploaded footage of their playthrough and, while the strategy be seen as unworthy, their coordination is amazing to watch. Definitely check it out!
