Big news in the Diablo 4 universe today. We’ve got a fresh update straight from Planar Radar about the hot fixes rolling out on December 8th—that’s today, folks! Let’s dive in.
First off, a big shoutout to everyone for your invaluable feedback since the Abattoir of Zir. At BlissCon, the team hinted at adding more AME features to Diablo 4, and your feedback has been instrumental in shaping these additions.
XP Buffs: A Game-Changer
Here’s the scoop: Starting from Tier 2, you’ll see significantly higher glyph XP rewards. This is a response to the community’s feedback on the tedious grind to level up the Tears of Blood glyphs. So, expect a smoother, more rewarding leveling experience.
Vampiric and Suppressor: Disabled
Big win, guys! The problematic Vampiric and Suppressor effects from the Blood Seekers are getting the axe across the game. This should alleviate some of the challenges you’ve been facing in the abattoirs.
Difficulty and Damage Adjustments
They’re tweaking the difficulty curve! The early tiers are getting a bit easier, especially for those new to the game. This means more opportunities to get accustomed to the game and progress smoothly. And for the veterans out there, Tier 10 and beyond remain as challenging as ever.
Incoming Damage Reduction
Here’s a big one: a whopping 20% reduction in incoming damage across all tiers. That means less damage taken, or to put it another way, a significant damage reduction. This should make your battles in the abattoirs a tad less brutal.
When to Expect These Changes?
Mark your calendars for December 8th—that’s today in Europe! The team is working hard to roll out these updates by the evening, so keep an eye out.
Community Feedback: A Driving Force
It’s incredible to see Blizzard reacting swiftly to player feedback, implementing these changes in just a few days. Your voices on social media, Reddit, and other platforms have truly shaped this update. This is a huge win for the community!
I can’t wait to dive into these changes, test them out, and maybe even get my glyph to level 50 for that sweet +1 range upgrade. These updates are a significant step in the right direction for Diablo 4, maintaining the challenge in the higher tiers while making the game more accessible and enjoyable.
So, there you have it, folks! Massive updates coming your way in Diablo 4 Season 2. The vampiric effect is out, damage is down by 20%, and leveling up just got a lot more rewarding. Keep an eye out for these changes later today and get ready for an enhanced gaming experience.
