When I go to launch the game via the B.net launcher, it starts "fetching patch manifest" and after downloading about 30-ish MBs, it'll let me start the game. However, when I DO start the game, it hangs in the task bar (dock for mac) and is unresponsive. If I force quit D3, it goes right back to "fetching patch manifest" and the problem starts all over again. Any fix that doesn't involve reinstalling the game?

We can definitely try a few things without requiring a reinstall of the game! First let's clear out some things and reinstall the app. Be sure to delete the preferences, then reinstall!
From there, try a disabling
the login items.
If it continues after that, let's turn off the auto update on the Launcher.
- 1. Open the Launcher
2. Head over the top left, Blizzard > Settings > Game Install/Update
3. Scroll down until you see "Game Updates" and set it to "Never automatically apply updates."
4. Next, move the folder to a new location, then scan and repair!
Last thing to try is a fresh reinstall of Diablo III.
