All the Item Affixes from the Diablo 4 BlizzCon Demo

Recommended Posts

CTj89zx.jpg
 

We have another amazing compilation by (of course) another redditor! This time it was TheDarkAmbience who looked through all the footage of not only the gameplay demos, but also the panels where devs were showing off items legendaries etc. We already know we will only have 2 base stats instead of the usual Strength, Dex, Int, Vitality and the variations thereof, namely Attack and Defence, but let's see what else we'll be dealing with.

Let's start with the legendary specific affixes:

  • Hit Effect: Your attacks have up to x% chance to spawn a hydra that will aid you in combat
  • Lightning strikes a nearby enemy dealing x damage whenever you shapeshift
  • +x to your equipped skills
  • Fireball launches 3 projectiles that deal x% of normal damage
  • Lightning Traps periodically appear around you dealing x damage after 2 seconds to nearby enemies
  • Upheaval ignites the ground burning enemies for an additional x damage of 3 seconds
  • Weapon mastery skills have an additional charge.
  • Cut to the Bone talent activates against enemies that are hit by your shouts instead of stuns
  • Critical strike chance increased by x% against bleeding enemies.
  • Your shouts generate x Fury per second while active.
  • Cast Nova at your Teleport location
  • Teleport moves you to a random location and costs x mana instead of having a cooldown.
  • Teleport grants a barrier that absorbs x% of your maximum life for 15 seconds.
  • Teleport forms a rift in your path that increases your critical strike chance by x% for 5 seconds.

We can see 5 types of legendaries here, from the many single skill-specific ones (Fireball, Teleport, Upheaval), to more general skill group ones (Master skills, Shouts) as well as general class ones (Druid shapeshift), talent-related ones (Cut to the Bone), and finally class-agnostic ones. Considering there will be a whole lot of skills to choose from for each class, I tend to believe them when they say we'll have hundreds of legendaries available.

Next is the bread and butter Offensive and Defensive affixes:

Defensive:

  • x Max Life.
  • x% Damage Reduction.
  • x% Dodge Chance.
  • x% Damage Reduction from Enemies within Melee Range.
  • x% Damage Reduction from Enemies out of Melee Range.
  • x% Fire Resistance
  • x% Lightning Resistance
  • x% Cold Resistance
  • x% Poison Resistance
  • x% Reduced Damage from Elites, Bosses, and Players
  • x% Reduced Duration of Enemy Control Impairing Effects

Offensive:

  • x% Attack Speed.
  • x% Critical Strike Chance.
  • x% Critical Strike Damage.
  • x% Increased Duration of Control Impairing effects.
  • x% Damage.
  • x% Physical Damage.
  • x% Damage to Stunned Targets.
  • x% Damage to Immobilized Targets.
  • x% Damage to Vulnerable Targets.
  • x% Damage to Enemies in Melee Range.
  • x% Damage to Enemies out of Melee Range.
  • x% Damage to Slowed Targets
  • x% Increased Damage against Elites
  • x% Fire Damage
  • x% Cold Damage
  • x% Lightning Damage
  • Hit Effect: Up to x% Chance to Slow
  • Hit Effect: Up to x% Chance to Slow on Crit
  • Hit Effect: Up to x% Chance to Stun
  • Hit Effect: Up to x% Chance to Stun on Crit

Nothing particularly interesting or non-standard here, mostly things we've seen before with the wording being somewhat different on melee and ranged damage reduction.

And finally we have Resource Managment and Misc ones:

Resource Management:

  • x% Cooldown Reduction
  • +x Maximum Mana (Sorcerer Only)
  • +x Maximum Fury (Barbarian Only)
  • x% reduced Fury cost for skills (Barbarian Only)
  • x% reduced Spirit cost for skills (Druid Only)
  • x% reduced Mana cost for skills (Sorcerer Only)

Other:

  • x% Movement Speed
  • x% increased movement speed for 6 seconds on Elite kill
  • +x rank to (insert skill here)

The big new thing here is the much touted + to skills, which will give us bonuses even if we have a skill capped at the 15th maximum rank. We also found out there will be +x to talents as well, and those can also go above a talent's max.

 

All in all it's a decent list, but we have to remember that this is very, VERY early on in development, and affixes and specific stats on the items aren't necessarily very high on the development priority list, as most of them can pretty easily be added later on. Personally I hope we get to see more crazy and above all interactive ones eventually, as passive buffs to whatever stat feels a bit boring.

I don't have time to check this all out now, but I wanted to share I think it's the right decision to go with 2 base stats over the original stats. Let's be honest, every RPG has the classic base stats (some form of str, dex, int, vit), and a huge portion of these end up being ignored entirely in most builds. Why not cut out the middle man and just let you focus on being tankier or being deadlier. I'm all for it! Ballsy choice, maybe creates more room for interesting item builds.

I agree with you there, either go attack defence OR do something creative with str dex int con etc. so they actually do different and interesting thing.

I actually did really like the d3 model. Like dex giving crit, int magic resit and so on to me gives stats some weight to it. The problem is that the power creep gets so absurd in these games that theres no way you would ever not go with your main stat.  That and actually just giving away what the other stats do on gear kinda defeats the point.

Hmm looks like there won't be spamming teleport or other movement skills to move around map and there are mounts instead. I'd really like this change of gameplay.

      We have some new info on the big Diablo 4 quarterly update blog that's coming soon, shared by Nevalistis over on reddit. We found out that the post is still scheduled to arrive in February and that it's very close to done, with localization and other technical details to be finished. It may not be much, but any D4 news is good news at this point, particularly the "assets" comment which might mean we get a new video to go with the update (or at least new screenshots)!
      Nevalistis (source)
      Is it March yet? Last I checked still February.
      Came here to say this. ?
      It's coming. Going through the extensive process that it takes to get these things approved. The team has really poured a ton of hard work into this, and they're very passionate about even their Work In Progress stuff being polished and presentable.
      We've got assets to polish and localization to do, but it's in the works and still on track for February.
      We also recently got some clarifications on the beta signup mixup, but it's pretty unlikely we get any further news about a beta (or alpha for that matter) in the February post.

      There's been some confusion today over the beta signup for Diablo 4, with community manager Nevalistis adding to the confusion with some out-dated info. It all started with a reddit post stating that the D4 beta signups are "now" open, with an immediate reply adding that they've been open since the game's reveal back at BlizzCon. Both of these were right and wrong, as there actually are no beta signups available at the moment, but in came Nevalistis to try and (incorrectly) clarify:
      Nevalistis on Beta Signups 1 (source)
      Accurate. More info about Blizzard Betas in general here.
      Though if you haven't gone and opted in for Diablo beta opportunities, I highly encourage everyone to do so. A lot of folks forget to do it at announce and opt in after Beta has started. While it's not really a first come, first serve situation, opting in after Beta started pretty much ensures you aren't getting in for the first wave (since we don't know you're interested).
      So it's a good reminder.
      Luckily reddittor BradXeno cleared things up for everyone, before the signup button on the D4 site exploded, clarifying that there are no more general opt-ins and they are now per-game, meaning the Diablo 4 one didn't actually exist yet - the one on the official D4 site is actually just for the newsletter! Nevalistis confirmed this soon after:
      Nevalistis on Beta Signups 2 (source)
      BradXeno
      Beta opt in was changed to be per game last year wasn't it? The account/franchise beta opt in page is gone and now opt ins are added to the game pages individually at some point.
      Can look over at WoW : Shadowlands for an example.
      My guess is that's why OP thought that is what this was.
       
      Ah, you're right. The process has changed significantly since the last beta I worked on (which was Rise of the Necromancer).
      This is, indeed, to sign up for the newsletter and any additional information we might release, including when beta sign-ups go live.
      So if you read about this and immediately got your hopes up that this indicated the game was closer than we thought... sorry. The only information we have about the release date or beta date is still that it's not even Blizzard soon, with a whole lot of individual speculation going around the community (I believe the general best (optimistic) bet at the moment is 2022).
      If you're really hurting for some Diablo 4 action (as I am) you can re-read and go over everything we know about the game or one of the many gameplay videos or articles on it (which you can pick from below). Or if you really want to delve deep, head on over to r/diablo and post your suggestions for the game, as the devs are sure to see them as community feedback seems to be one of the most important things to the at the moment.

      We have another hands on with Diablo 4 as GamesRadar not only tinkers with the demo, but also chats with the devs. The main focus of the article is the new engine, with the usual ground already covered about weather and day and night effects, but we do get to hear about the advanced systems of monster death animations, or "death kits", as they call them:
      Just how complex these death animations will be remains to be seen, as the above examples are pretty plain and pretty much already present in D3. Then it's on to the combat, and as we've seen from all the videos out there ourselves, it does indeed feel good, makes you feel powerful while also not being immortal and constantly in danger. The classes (Druid especially) and skills also get a mention, but there's nothing really new there. And finally, there's some bold statements about the open world:
      The article doesn't really bring that much new to bear overall, but you should probably give it a read regardless, as it's always worth reading more about Diablo 4, since we have to pass the time until it releases somehow...

      We have a couple of videos showcasing the differences between what we've been shown from Diablo 4 so far with previous entries in the series, and while they're perhaps not quote top notch clips considering the resolution used etc, you get the idea from them well anyway. First off we have 4 vs. 3 vs. 2:
      This next one is a little better, as it compares actual gameplay, but it uses footage from the Diablo 3 beta, presumably since D4 is in a similar state, progress-wise.

      Diablo IV is very early in development and the developers have no information to share at this time. At BlizzCon, Blizzard said they were aiming for quarterly updates on the state of the game, and Community Manager Nevalistis thinks we'll see another update in the middle to second third of the Q1.
      We also compiled a list of everything we know about Diablo IV so far, so check that out if you're interested to learn the latest news about the game.
      Blizzard (Source)
      At Blizzcon Blizzard announced quarterly updates starting in 2020. Well... we’re waiting!
      I mean, we're 7 days into 2020. For some, the first day back at work from holiday vacation was yesterday. I understand how excited everyone is, but let's set expectations and cover a few points (some reiterated, some that might be obvious but should be said).
      Diablo IV very, very early in development. Part of the reason we're aiming for quarterly updates is because there's not a lot right now that's ready to share. If it was ready to show, you saw it at BlizzCon. Diablo IV isn't the only project we're working on, though it might be the one you're most excited about (and it's fine if you are). As a reminder, we have patches actively being developed for Diablo III as well as the ongoing work on Diablo Immortal. For both bandwidth reasons on our end as well as avoiding flooding our (currently shared) communication channels, there's strategy needed in pacing out the distribution of information. Q1 means sometime between now and the end of March. April would mark the beginning of Q2. I don't have a time estimate for you, but my personal goal is to aim for somewhere in the middle to second third of the quarter. I'm not sure where exactly it's going to land; we've never approached communication in quite this manner before, and sometimes there's changes and schedule adjustments that need to be made. I suspect there will be many learnings for myself and the team with the first update as a result. ? We want to put a lot of time, effort, and polish into these updates because they are so few and we care a lot about our work. However, ultimately, the content will be decided by (1) what's ready to show and (2) what conversations we're ready to have with the community. For example, I wouldn't expect the first update to be about the intricacies of end-game activities. It's still too early (some areas of the game are still in concepting, while others are being actively implemented) - but we do want to make sure we're checking in with you on systems of interest as they come together, concept art, and possibly in-progress models. It's really going to vary. Actually making the game will always be the priority. Blogs take a really long time to produce, especially when they are of this caliber and content level. If video is required, even more so (as it adds an entire new team and process for review/approvals). What content we end up showing will drive the production needs, which is part of why it's so hard for me to give you an estimate on arrival. Making games is complicated. So is supporting and communicating around them. Almost none of it can be done fast if we're going to do it well. We want to make sure the information we're giving is as clear and accurate as possible and, while we want to maintain transparency, we also don't want to risk over-promising and under delivering. This happens all too often by showing features too early.
      So we are going to take our time. I understand it's hard to be patient; I literally live day to day in a building full of cool stuff I can't share and sometimes it's maddening. You can bet your hard earned gold we'll be sharing what we can as soon as possible, and it's okay to take a break from the waiting if it's eating at you. We'll just be here, hard at work. ?
      It was a joke. I don’t really expect anything new in January.
      I honestly expected this to get deleted pretty much immediately. But hey instead I got an actual reply. I see this as an absolute win!
      Quite frankly, I expected this post to happen on January 1st and expect it to continue happening up until the update actually gets made, so rather than later being accused of "ignoring everyone" and "never updating," I'd rather get that bullet out of the way and let other folks quote this when people decide they want to be obnoxious. 😉
      Only a matter of time, really.
