Diablo 4 - Ashava

Many of the most powerful builds in Diablo 4 have seen nerfs, thanks to a recent patch. However, Blizzard Entertainment isn’t done and released multiple hotfixes to counteract bugs and an XP farming exploit.

The most recent hotfix corrected an issue where Elite monsters would spawn in higher numbers. It meant that many players would simply run through and ignore everything else, kill the Elites, and then restart the dungeon for quick XP. On the other hand, an issue where multiple Darcels could spawn during the side quest “Stolen Artifice,” thus blocking progression, is also fixed.

Another bug where one of the story bosses, Astaroth, could block the progression of the quest “As the World Burns” by destroying a house before going to it is also fixed. These are all in addition to various stability and bug fixes.

Check out the full notes below. Diablo 4 is available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5 and PC for Ultimate and Deluxe Edition owners. It goes live tomorrow for Standard Edition players. Stay tuned for more details.
