Diablo IV

1.4.1 Build #54053 (PC, Xbox) and #53991 (PlayStation™)

Game Updates

  • The Enchanting window now explicitly informs you that you can't re-roll into a Greater Affix.
  • Hellborne enemies in Helltide now deal additional fire damage with their attacks.
  • Masterworking materials can now be directly transmuted instead of requiring the opening of a Materials Cache to receive them.
  • Once Masterworking is unlocked by one character, it is now always accessible on all characters across realms.
  • The Gold cost of Masterworking has been reduced.
    • Examples:
      • Ranks 1-4: Unchanged
      • Rank 5: reduced from 450,000 to 400,000
      • Rank 8: reduced from 1,000,000 to 800,000
      • Rank 12: reduced from 10,000,000 to 2,500,000

Developer’s Note: We want to make the main push for Masterworking to be focused on the acquisition of materials, and less focused on needing the Gold. We want to avoid the possibility of having the materials available, but needing to take extra time to collect the Gold.

  • The Armor cap is now displayed in the tooltip when hovering over Armor in character stats.
  • The surge damage from Sorcerer's Enhanced Charged bolts has been increased from 30% to 45%.

Developer’s Note: We investigated an issue where the surge from Enhanced Charged Bolts was happening too frequently when enemies were tightly stacked together, which caused performance issues. We also found that the surge damage was doing less damage than intended while the Piercing Static aspect was equipped. While fixing those two issues (see bug fixes below), it was decided that a 50% buff to the surge damage would compensate for reducing how often it procs when enemies are stacked together.

  • The drop rates for Scattered Prisms have been increased from multiple sources.
    • Treasure goblins now drop Scattered Prisms more often.
      • 15% Chance in World Tiers I and II
      • 25% Chance in World Tier III
      • 30% Chance in World Tier IV
    • World Bosses now always drop Scattered Prisms, and the amount they drop increases by World Tier.
      • World Tiers I and II: 1 Scattered Prism
      • World Tier III: 2 Scattered Prisms
      • World Tier IV: 3 Scattered Prisms
    • The Butcher will always drop a Scattered Prism on defeat.
  • Reworked item stat comparisons to be more intuitive when the same stat appears on an item multiple times, which most often occurs with tempered items.

Developer’s Note: Previously, if you compared an item’s stats and it had a value appear twice (such as Cooldown Reduction,) it would display those two different values individually. We have now updated this to combine those individual values to only display one value, making it easier to compare stats across items.

  • The Whisper bounty requirements for defeating Hellborne has been reduced from defeating 3 to defeating 1.

Developer’s Note: We've made this change to compensate for a bug fix that can be seen further down in the patch notes.

Bug Fixes

Accessibility

  • Fixed an issue where the Screen Reader did not properly announce supported item slot categories for Aspects in the Codex of Power.
  • Fixed an issue where the Screen Reader did not properly differentiate between locked and unlocked Tempering recipes.

User Interface and User Experience

Gameplay

Helltide

  • Fixed an issue where Hellborne enemies that despawned after Player death would drop loot.
  • Fixed an issue where Helltide Zealots could spawn underground.
  • Fixed an issue where Screaming Hell Veins could be looted multiple times when in a party.
  • Fixed an issue where Aberrant Cinders did not reset when logging back in to an active Helltide with a character that previously had Cinders.
  • Fixed an issue where the damaging effect from Spires of Corruption did not match the visual effect.
  • Fixed an issue where Trembling Mass enemies could infinitely respawn.
  • Fixed an issue where enemies during the Waves of Darkness could engage and chase nearby Iron Wolves, which made earning mastery for the Event more difficult.
  • Fixed an issue where Hellborne Disciples spawned during a Blood Maiden Encounter counted towards the Cull Hellborne Whisper Objective.

Developer’s Note: The Hellborne Disciples that spawn while fighting the Blood Maiden do not count as Hellborne in other contexts, such as the fact they do not drop loot like normal Hellborne. This change is to ensure these enemies are treated consistently.

  • Fixed an issue where Threat progress could become permanently locked if the player exited Helltide while Threat was near zero.
  • Fixed an issue where Hellworms could sometimes leave behind invisible walls after disappearing.

The Pit

  • Fixed an issue where Orb beams from the Den Mother could damage players before they had been released.
  • Fixed an issue where you could only interact with the Pit Obelisk if you had Rune Shards in your inventory.
  • Fixed an issue where Runeshards could drop in World Tier III Nightmare Dungeons and from the Seething Abomination in the Fields of Hatred.

Skills and Class Mechanics

  • Fixed an issue where the surge damage from Enhanced Charged Bolts was exploding too often on enemies that were stacked together (as noted previously in Game Updates).
  • Fixed an issue where the surge damage from Enhanced Charged Bolts was doing less damage than intended when using the Piercing Static Aspect.
  • Fixed an issue where the Druid Spirit Boon Overload's damage was Physical Damage instead of Lightning damage.
  • Fixed an issue where the Aspect of the Alpha did not properly mark the Wolves skill as a Werewolf skill in-game.
  • Fixed an issue where Boulders orbiting the player from the Dolmen Stone Amulet could stop doing so indefinitely when destroyed by projectile-destroying entities, such as Suppressor Fields or monster-spawned walls.
  • Fixed an issue where Rapid Fire used with the Scoundrel's Kiss Unique Ring had a further range than intended, allowing enemies to be damaged and defeated off-screen.

General

  • Fixed an issue where walls spawned by Elites with the Waller Affix could be destroyed by other monsters coming into contact with them. Hell’s Legions care little when it comes to morality, but they do not mess around with keeping Walls up to code.
  • Fixed an issue where the Head Librarian in the Sunken Library could spawn behind the locked door, which would block progression.
  • Fixed an issue where items dropped in the Cathedral of Light had a higher level requirement than they should.
  • Fixed an issue where End Game bosses, i.e. Uber Duriel, could still drop gear that was lower than Rare quality.
  • Fixed an issue where End Game bosses were dealing more damage than intended in certain scenarios.
  • Fixed an issue where a Shrine could reset after you take a teleport out of a dungeon and then re-enter.
  • Fixed an issue where Cooldown Reduction granted by the following Tempering affixes was less for higher tier recipes.
    • Defensive
      • Frost Cage
      • Nature Magic Wall
      • Barbarian Strategy
    • Utility
      • Alchemist Control
      • Daze Control

      • Companion Efficiency
      • Weapon Mastery Efficiency

    • Fixed the debuff from the Beast in Ice boss fight persisting after death and stacking unintentionally.

Miscellaneous

  • Fixed an issue where the Blood Maiden’s Mantle Trophy cosmetic dropped by the Blood Maiden didn't function properly.
  • Fixed an issue where the Leave Dungeon animation would play but the actual portal would stop if the portal was started while moving.
  • Fixed an issue where Andariel's rotating laser was invisible when VFX quality was set to low.
  • Fixed an issue where taking a Town Portal right after killing the Blood Maiden during the Voice of the Night quest could block quest progression.
  • Fixed an issue where some Legacy items had their affixes re-rolled during Seasonal migration.

Developer’s Note: The intention of the change is that all stats on items should either be completely restored to what they were, or get the maximum stats if the previous values were unavailable.

  • Fixed an issue where killing Echo of Lilith did not reward a Resplendent Spark.

Developer’s Note: Anyone who has killed Echo of Lilith in any season will receive a Resplendent Spark this season. In future seasons, you will have to defeat her again to get one. This implementation is to retroactively reward players who have defeated Echo of Lilith this season, but did not receive a Resplendent Spark. For players that have yet to defeat Echo of Lilith this season, defeating her will still grant you a Resplendent Spark.

  • Various UI, visual, audio, stability, and performance improvements.

Helltide Reborn

Helltide has been updated to provide more challenges and rewards.

Helltide Threat

  • As you battle through Helltides, you will generate Threat – how much will be determined by the difficulty of monster and how often you’re securing Tortured Gifts within Helltide.
  • There are three Helltide Threat Tiers that each increase the danger and frequency of monster ambushes. At Tier 3, you will become Hell-Marked.
  • Achieving maximum Threat will initiate a brief ambush frenzy of maximum enemy density. The ambush will end with a final Hellborne spawn, an immensely powerful agent of Hell, resurrected from the tortured souls of Sanctuary’s most powerful champions.
    • There are five variants representing each Class in Diablo IV.
  • Upon activating the Hellborne ambush, your Threat will reset.
  • Dying will reset your Threat.

Accursed Ritual

  • Baneful Hearts can primarily be earned through opening Tortured Gift chests and can be used at the Accursed Ritual location. Baneful Hearts can also drop from:
    • Hellborne Demons
    • Doomsayers
  • A scene of shocking gore, the Accursed Ritual is the ultimate testament to the disturbing lengths the followers of Hell will go to appease their dark wishes. It is here where you can begin the Accursed Ritual.
  • Deposit three Baneful Hearts to begin the ritual, and you will be swarmed with a dense demonic ambush. Other players within your subzone will be alerted that the ritual has begun if they wish to join you in your fight.
  • This ambush will climax with the arrival of the Blood Maiden, an immensely powerful demonic creature who will offer great reward upon her death.

World Tier I and II adjustments

A version of Helltide has been introduced for World Tiers I and II, with the following adjustments:

  • All Tortured Gifts are Mystery chests.
