Afaik it only happens to barbarians, if they use the skill WhirlWind.

I'm playing a barbarian and had the same error until I changed my secondary skill. Use another skill instead of Whirlwind and you don't experience the error anymore.

It should work. Since I changed my secondary skill, I have been able to play Diablo 3 without any interruptions...

To bad I can't use the Whirlwind skill. I Just love that skill :p

I'm playing wizard and it happens to me. Still unable to play, almost 24 hours after I bought the game.

To Monteque : it seemed to have worked for me too, been able to play without a crash for at least 20 minutes (then it was time to eat, so normal disconnect...) :)

That actually did NOT work for me. I was initially using the whirlwind ability and switched it out for the shockwave ability and was still getting disconnected. However, just plain not playing my Barbarian seems to have allowed me to avoid the problem; I went and created a Demon Hunter so I have something to do until I can play my Barbarian again.

I wonder if it's a problem with the zone. On my Barbarian, I'm out doing the Black Soulstone stuff.

It's not just Barbarians, I'm a Demon Hunter with the same issue. My buddy sitting right next to me has a Monk and a Wizard and he can play with both no problem, so it's not a problem with routers or modems.

I am suffering from these same frustrations. Glued to the forums for most of the day yesterday expecting a fix, or at least a proper acknowledgement of the issue... but got nothing.

Went to bed when the servers were down for maintenance fully expecting that when I got up in the morning the problems would be fixed and I'd be able to play... didn't happen.

Today, more threads than ever are popping up on this issue and the frustration level from people such as myself who can no longer stay connected is through the roof... still no word from Blizzard.

I have followed all of the support steps... didn't work. I've tried a bunch of other fixes (reverting my changes every time so that I don't mess up my settings completely)... didn't work.

A few hours ago I submitted a support ticket, as was being recommended that we do by some blue posters... I still haven't had a reply.

I know that in the grand scheme of things, Diablo III isn't that important. But after paying for a product on launch day, then feeling like we're being ignored for two days straight when the product simply ISN'T WORKING as it should, it's hard not to let some frustration/sadness/insanity seep in around the edges.

Please Blizzard, all we want to do is play your game! We love it!
BUMP FOR WHIRLWIND FIX!!!

I have been told by GM's not to open tickets for technical problems and to just go to the forums. So, Himmathand, that kinda makes me giggle a bit.

But, guys, simply going to the forms and making several different threads about the same issue isn't going to help much. We need to tell them what's happening and what we've done/tried to do to fix it and what we have found.

I've found that simply not playing my level 25 Barb and playing a new character (a level 5 or so Demon Hunter) allowed me to not d/c every 5 mins.

That and I'd rather people been working on the problem that sitting there staring at the forums saying "ok we're working on it. ok we're working on it. ok we're working on it." after every post. xD

edit : considering it is happening to classes OTHER than the Barbarian it is not a "Whirlwind" problem. Moving along.
