Keywarden spawning in Normal mode

The keywarden in Act3 spawned in Normal mode. I thought it wasn't supposed to spawn in Normal, Nightmare and Hell anymore? Has anyone else ran into a keywarden not in Inferno after they were supposedly removed?

"Keywardens

Nekarat the Keywarden now has a chance to drop a random Key (of Destruction, Hate, or Terror) in addition to the Infernal Machine plans
All Keywardens will now only appear in Inferno difficulty."

Blizzard just can't fix things correctly.

I always read all the patch notes. Guess somehow I missed that.

To see if the Keywarden would spawn again I ran through the Stonefort in act3 a few times. Out of the 3 runs I did the Keywarden spawned 2 more times. This was in Normal mode MP10.

like i pointed out in a thread of the same topic it is quite possible that it just didnt appear in testing. things like that happen. additionally, on the PTR how many ppl do you really think thoroughly tests normal-hell? imo, most people are testing inferno because that is what really affects the majority.

hopefully we will see a fix to this in an upcoming hotfix since its been reported a few times.

I thought I would just add another report here -

I encountered Nekarat the Keywarden on Act IV Normal MP0

I was surprised but it seems a few people have been finding the same thing

Hi Guys,

I just wanted to let you all know that we do have a potential fix for this. However, I don't have any info as to when it may appear on live servers. Just know that it's in the pipeline.

Thanks for all the reports!

Blizzard is fortunate that they are not overseen by US Government and forced to do product recalls like the automobile industry.

I just lost my level 20 DH in Normal MP2 hardcore to the Dahlgur Oasis keywarden.

I was comfortably beating mobs & elites, but took about 2 seconds to go from 100% healthy, to hey, isn't that the aura-thingy from the Keywarden? to wtf, it's the Keywarden, to dead.

Nice bug.

Same here, Oasis warden at normal mp10... Makes you wonder if these patches even get tested before going live

I am sure they get tested heavily. But, seeing how these incidents are few and far between, I would guess the odds of one spawning are miniscule and probably would not be caught by a small team of play-testers unless they tested for a year.

Millions of players on-line and only a handful have reported a kw spawn below inferno.

Just wanted to let you know I ran into Sokahr in the Oasis on normal (10)...

Heres a screenshot of me in act2 normal mp10.

Sokahr doesn't spawn every time bit I'd say about 1 out of 50 runs.
