Diablo 3 PTR 2.7.2 | Has ended

Do they have any updated PTR notes anywhere?

Not as yet. The PTR went live last Thursday, in the mid-afternoon Pacific time.
If they do a mid-PTR update at a similar time, it’s still going to be a few hours away.

Today is also Veteran’s day in the US so we may not get a patch or even patch notes today.

P.S. if you’re a vet, THANK YOU for your service.

I just looked at…

…and the date on it says 11/11/2021, and has no red text indicating changes, and there’s nothing in the Bug Fixes section. (Yes, I hard refreshed with Ctrl+F5 to ensure it wasn’t a cached old version).

It’ll take a little bit to load. For now you can grab the information here

Edit - It’s up on all sites now.

Great, let’s go back to it :slight_smile:

Blog is updated now \o/

Immediate issue…

You’ve fixed the issue of players being able to socket a soul shard into an off-hand weapon.

However, whatever method you used to fix this means that it’s now impossible to socket a gem into any off-hand item. This means you can’t put standard gems such as Amethysts, Diamonds, Emeralds, Rubies and Topazes into off-hands. So, any class that dual-wields can’t, for example, put an emerald into an off-hand weapon for 130% CHD.

Seems to be working for me…

Happened to me as well, can’t put an emerald into a weapon on my equipped off-hand weapon.
And can’t equipped a socketed weapon.

Edit: can’t use the item that had the Shard in it. Crafted a new Fist weapon (only Lvl 28 here), put a socket in, can socket the equipped off hand. Might be actually a PTR only bug with equipped weapons that had their shard removed bythe patch.

Edit 2: I can’t even enchant the item at the Mystic. Looks like this items is borked beyond repair.

This is only a problem until you log off and back on. I couldn’t socket an emerald in my off hand barb mighty weapon. But, removing it from my character sheet, logging off, and back on fixed it. Now I can socket any normal gem in the off hand.

Time to start using the bug report :point_down:

  • Firebird’s Finery (6-piece bonus): You gain 2500% 5000% increased damage while Ignite is applied to a target. Hitting an Ignited enemy with a non-channeling fire spell deals Ignite damage multiplied by Combustion stacks. Pets cannot trigger this effect

Holy fuster cluck, they actually listened to player feedback. :scream:

  • Updated Ring of Emptiness to benefit attacks from all non-Fetish pets.

Ohh yeeaaahh…

So ring of emptines now works whit non-fetish pets. Does that mean Helltooth Garg biuld is now a bit stronger?

Yeah, based on math the Helltooth Garg should be 9GR+ stronger with that buff alone.

Ring of Emptiness is up to 4x damage multiplier. That alone is 9GRs. That should bring several builds in to more competitive level.

I don’t think it’s still enough to bring WD up to level with other classes but it’s a start. It should help builds that have fallen into obscurity.
