Blizzard has published a list of hotfixes applied Diablo III over on Battle.net along with the news that the real-money auction house has been delayed again.

The firm also said it’s looking into why some players’ achievements are missing, and “sometime next week,” a patch addressing client issues will be released. It will also apply additional bug fixes.

As far as the real-money auction house was concerned, community manager Nethaera wrote the following:

“In light of the post-launch obstacles we’ve encountered, we have made the decision to move the launch of the real-money auction house beyond the previously estimated May time frame. As we mentioned in our original announcement, our goal has always been to ensure everyone has the smoothest experience possible when the real-money auction house launches, and we need a bit more time to iron out the existing general stability and gameplay issues before that feature goes live.

“While we don’t have a new launch date to share just yet, we’ll have more information soon.”

The list of hotfixes, which also applies changes to the monk, demon hunter and wizard classes, is listed over on Eurogamer, as Battle.net is currently down.

Note, though, that if you have yet to finish the game on normal difficulty, the list may contain spoilers.
