Blizzard has released patch 1.0.3a for Diablo III, fixing a series of bugs and exploits in the process.

The only class fix is the Witch Doctor's zombie bears, which now have better pathfinding so are less likely to get stuck in scenery. The undead bears can now also attack enemies on slopes.

Item decay has also been halved, meaning your loot will degrade far slower and require fewer repairs. The 10 per cent penalty to item durability upon death still remains.

Unique monsters will now also drop an 'appropriate' amount of loot when slain.

You can read the full patch notes on Blizzard's site.

The 9/10 scoring dungeon crawler is now pretty much stable after a difficult launch period, says Blizzard.
