How to Fix Altar of Rites Co-Op Bug in Diablo 3

To fix the Diablo 3 Altar of Rites co-op bug, you have to go through a couple of fairly simple, if annoying steps. But first, let’s break the glitch itself down. What happens is, the first player to click on the Altar has full access to the upgrade tree and all of its benefits. This person can interact with everything as intended. The second person can go into the Altar menu, but can’t do anything in it. It has nothing to do with who’s hosting the game; it’s just a first come – first (and only) served kind of situation at the moment. I highly doubt that’s what the developers had envisioned, but it’s where we stand nonetheless. What is one to do?

Well, the only fix for the Altar of Rites co-op bug in Diablo 3 that we know of begins with both of you logging out of the game, then logging back in. Once both of you are back in the game, let the other player touch the Altar first. And then you just switch places like that so that both of you get a turn. Alternatively, the first player might have to remain offline while the other person does their stuff at the Altar. Also, there is a possibility that Player 1 has to exit the game entirely before anything happens. It’s a mess; one which the devs will hopefully be able to fix soon. In the meantime, you have to go through this rigmarole.
