Diablo 3 Patch 1.0.8 Bug: Character Display

There are always some issues with new patches, and v1.0.8 is no exception. The game features seem to be working, after their PTR testing, but many players are experiencing issue with logging in and with changing characters. Often with humorous visuals.

Lylirra: We’re currently looking into two issues that are affecting players who’ve patched up to 1.0.8:
Item Label Display is reverting back to “Push to Show” after changing it to another setting.
When trying to switch to a different character, the character model (including its class, gender, name, and banner) in the menu does not update, but equipped gear will. This appears to simply be a visual bug, as joining a game session will use the correct character.
We’ll be sure to provide an update in this thread once we’ve more information. In the meantime, thank you for your reports! To help keep the conversation streamlined (this will help us talk to you better, and vice-versa), we’re going to be locking and redirecting posts to this location.

Another bug is that barbarian Inspiring Presence may or may not be affecting the barb himself. This was reported in the PTR forums as a bug, and is believed to be simply a tooltip/display issue, but it would be nice to have it confirmed. Is everyone but the barb getting the buff, or is the barb also getting it, too?
Grimiku: Thanks for the report. We sent this up so it could be looked at as well. Of course, as soon as we have an update we’ll let you all know. Thanks again!
