This 60 level wizard seems to drop dead in the middle of the desert for no good reason. What caused this?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

I'm voting to close this as too localize due to this being a bug that will likely get fixed fairly soon. What happens is when the sand wasps shoot their little wasps, if they're on screen, and then you move them off screen, when they come back on screen (either due to you walking towards them, or them flying onto your screen) they will be invisible. So the wiz actually got hit by 4-5 of those little wasps (which hurt a tonne). – Mr Smooth Jun 19 '12 at 11:55
Not to mention that this bug is now fixed as of 1.03. – bwarner Jun 19 '12 at 14:03
Voting to reopen based on the qualifications for "technical support" (including reproducable bugs) listed here. The question definitely needs a better title, though. – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Jun 19 '12 at 15:40
@BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft The bug was fixed, so this question is no longer relevant. – Wipqozn Jun 19 '12 at 15:46
@BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft - The fact the death was from invisible wasps is actually part of the answer, not the question. But I don't mind the edit. – ripper234 Jun 19 '12 at 16:05

It's a bug. When the wasps shoot projectiles at the edge of the screen and you move so that they disappear from your view, they will become invisible. But they can still kill you.

Here's a thread about it on the Diablo 3 Hardcore forums. The author of that thread also linked to a video where you can clearly see the bug (he tested this on SC):

Update as of Patch 1.0.3:

According to the 1.0.3 patch notes for Diablo 3, this issue has been fixed:

Fixed a bug where Sandwasp projectiles could sometimes become invisible.

Bugs are bugged indeed. – bummzack Jun 19 '12 at 12:02
