Diablo 4 Season Updates
Diablo 4 developers recently took players by surprise with a new hotfix that simultaneously gives and takes. Buffs to experience (EXP) gains in World Tiers were accompanied by a nerf to the Seeds of Hatred gains.
Season of the Malignant
The Season of the Malignant in Diablo 4 is almost two-thirds of the way through. Despite initial setbacks due to a less than favourable opening patch, certain course corrections have been made. Recent Patch 1.1.4 brought bug fixes and a significant buff to the Urn of Aggression rewards. Despite these improvements, gaming buffs continue to call for a major overhaul of the game's impending Season of Blood.
Key Hotfix Changes
The September 14 hotfix, according to Blizzard’s blog, offers minimal changes, but these are of major importance to the games players. They welcomed the buff to EXP gains in higher World Tiers. However, the joy was short-lived due to the accompanying demise of a Seeds of Hatred exploit.
Fields of Hatred, once swarmed with activity, are expected to become slightly barren after the new updates.
Within the September 14 update, the changes to Diablo 4 game are as follows:
- Experience gains for killing monsters have been significantly increased in World Tiers 3 and 4. Specifically, World Tier 3 saw a 5% increase in experience gain, while World Tier 4 experienced a 15% increase. This will impact the gaming experience.
- An issue where Seeds of Hatred could be excessively acquired under certain scenarios has been addressed and fixed.
These alterations are seen positively by players who are keen on grinding through the game. Even the Nightmare Dungeons in Diablo 4 might become more attractive after this update.
The September 14 update constitutes the entirety of the planned changes for Diablo 4. Although it's not a long list, these alterations are projected to improve the game's playability, particularly for those who are keen on advancing further.
