Starting on July 20, the long-awaited Class Change arrives, letting players that reach level 35 change their class once every 7 days. For those in the endgame, check out the brand-new experience, Hero's Journey, or grab a team and take on the new Helliquary boss, Gorgothra.

Hail, adventurer.

Since our last encounter, many of you have come face-to-face with icy death against Vitaath, acquired blessings from the Hungering Moon, and kept Sanctuary’s denizens safe as a result of your valor.

A few weeks ago, we provided you with our first batch of post-launch content for Diablo Immortal. This week, we’re excited to unveil the new Class Change mechanic, two in-game events, our deadliest Helliquary boss yet, and more. All the items mentioned below will go live on July 20 at 3 a.m. server time—specific dates for content going live afterward are provided below. Let’s dive right in!

Class Change

8JG1IGE14EBM1657903498145.png

In Diablo games, your journey begins with an important choice: which class will you play as? To alleviate some of the pressure associated with this choice, and to equip players with increased flexibility in how they play, we’re adding a new Class Change mechanic to Diablo Immortal.

After being up close and personal as a Barbarian, perhaps you’re ready to sheathe your swords and manipulate arcane forces from afar as a Wizard. Class Change presents an opportunity for a fresh start while maintaining most of your previous progress. To experience Sanctuary anew as a different class, visit the Shifting Flames brazier in Westmarch to begin.

Below are a few rules surrounding the Class Change mechanic:

  • Class Change becomes available for a character beginning at level 35.
  • You may change your class once every seven days and at no cost—there is also a one-time option to immediately revert to your previous class, skipping the seven-day waiting period. There are no current plans to allow players to purchase the ability to change classes more frequently.
  • When you change to each class for the first time, you can set the appearance of your character and receive a full reset of your Paragon Trees.
  • Upon changing to each class for the first time, you will be granted placeholder gear. The placeholder gear will have an equivalent rank to the previously equipped gear of your last class.
  • All Clan, Warband and other social group affiliations will carry over.
  • Some class-specific cosmetics and gear will not carry over when you change classes. All gear equipped to your previous class will be available in your inventory. Any cosmetics owned for a class will be retained on that class and will be available upon changing back to it.

Hero’s Journey

550RC560TCHU1657903498853.png

Muster all your grit and tenacity, for the journey ahead is rife with both untold glory and righteous rewards. Hero’s Journey is a new end-game experience that unlocks for adventurers during the Frozen Tundra portion of the main questline. Consisting of four chapters, with two more planned for the future, Hero’s Journey will send you to complete mettle-testing objectives that scale in difficulty as you rise in Paragon Level.

If you can prove you’re up to the task, a bounty of rewards is here to greet you upon completing each chapter. These range from large sums of gold or Platinum to Aspirant’s Keys, Legendary Crests, and even the Glorious Journey Portrait Frame.

Adventurer’s Path Limited-Time Event

UIHC8SV13ACK1657903498914.jpg

In Sanctuary few are capable enough to stand against the darkness and wager their life for the defenseless. But you, adventurer, have consigned your days to thinning out the ranks of the Burning Hells, ushering in safety where all hope was once lost. The downtrodden look up to you, and to continue serving them, you must walk the Adventurer’s Path.

From July 20 at 3:00 a.m.–August 3 at 3:00 a.m. server time, as you complete Adventurer’s Path tasks, you’ll earn gold, enchanted dust, and scrap materials for your heroics. Racking up enough completed tasks will also unlock milestone rewards for you:

  • Upon completion of eight tasks: 10 Aspirant’s keys
  • Upon completion of 16 tasks: the Adventurer’s Laurel Portrait Frame
  • Upon completion of 20 tasks: one Legendary Crest

New Helliquary Boss: Gorgothra the Claimer

E9GPSDOMWXU71657903498455.png

Rayek has located another one! But he’s going to need the help of a few hardened adventurers to quell this gargantuan and impossibly ancient threat. Gorgothra is the third of the Wrathborne demons to plague Sanctuary. She has earned the worship of countless demons over the ages, but is no stranger to combat—her petrification rays, bilious venom, and serpentine strikes dwarf the power of Lassal and Vitaath.

Do you possess the demon-slaying prowess needed to overcome Gorgothra’s wrath? Or will you become another ossified corpse decorating her lair? Assemble your group at the Helliquary, for Gorgothra emerges on August 2.

Hungering Moon Limited-Time Event

FY5S7R7BB4P71657903498005.jpeg

The moon is back for seconds, and it demands more blood. . . perhaps even yours! Gaze upon the moon—bask in its hallowed glow, heed its howl for sustenance, and lunar-laced blessings you shall be bestowed. Fulfilling the moon’s demands will earn you Moonslivers, which can be traded for Blessings. After acquiring seven Blessings you will have curried enough goodwill with the moon to trade these in for a random reward such as: Enchanted Dust, Glowing Shards, and Legendary gear. Offer enough blessings to the moon and it will even present you with its favor—a bundle consisting of one Legendary Crest and more.

We welcome brave adventurers to lend their hand in satiating the moon’s hunger from July 29 3:00 a.m.–July 31 3:00 a.m. server time.

Amber Blades Cosmetic Set

BEPJYMNF4NMG1657903498110.png

The Amber Blades are one of the foremost desert gangs vying for control of Shassar, and notably less vicious in their behavior than their largest adversary, the Sand Scorpions. The Blades condemn the Scorpions’ forced labor and attacks on caravans, and take every opportunity to disrupt their most vicious plans. Whether this approach is a matter of morality or a recruiting technique is known only to the Amber Blades themselves.

Shield yourself from the sun’s unyielding rays while trekking through an unforgiving sea of sand with the Amber Blades Cosmetic Set—purchasable from the in-game shop.

If you’re looking for the newest round of hotfixes and bug fixes implemented for Diablo Immortal across all supported platforms, they can be found here. For PC-only hotfixes, bug fixes, and patch notes, visit our known issues blog.

We’ll see you in Sanctuary!

Feature Updates

Warband Raid

  • Completing a weekly Warband Raid will now allow you to purchase an Eternal Legendary Crest for 1600 Platinum from the Crest Merchant in Westmarch, Jondo Mouren.

Developer’s Note: Because the purchasable Crest is Eternal, this provides you with an additional avenue to obtain gems that can be sold on the Market.

Fading Ember

  • The Fading Ember cap has been increased from 200 to 280.
  • You may now trade 22 Fa Runes for an Eternal Legendary Crest.

Developer’s Note: This means that you can now craft a random Legendary Gem once per week if you max out your Fading Embers.

Zwenson’s Haunting

  • Changed the ability description to read: When you defeat an enemy, a dark beast attacks nearby enemies, dealing X% base damage. Cannot occur more than once every X seconds.

Developer’s Note: The previous description incorrectly referenced summoning, which made the ability sound like a summon ability rather than an attack.

Blood-Soaked Jade

  • Changed the ability description to read: Increases all damage you deal by up to X% while at full Life, with a minimum bonus of Y% while at low Life. Increases your Movement Speed by Z%.

Developer’s Note: In the previous description, it wasn’t entirely clear that Movement Speed was a flat buff while the damage bonus was affected by your Life.

    • Heaven Squints: Judgment now conjures a continuous beam of light from the heavens which moves under your control.

    • Puncta Obscura: Impale now also causes enemies to Bleed for X damage over Y seconds.

So Immortal gets a class change, but not implemented in D3? Where's the love for D3?

Different game designs.

You don't need it in D3, it would add very little of value (as 1-60 takes a couple of hours).

All progress in D3 is account locked, in DI it's all character locked.

      The fourth and largest major update for Diablo Immortal is here and adds the new Ancients' Cradle Zone, 3 limited-time events, one skill for each class, and more.
      Blizzard also announced the launch of 4 new servers with the major update.
      (Source)
      Chaos is at your doorstep, adventurer. Can you quell it?
      Welcome to Destruction’s Wake, our fourth and largest major update for Diablo Immortal thus far. It goes without saying that your support of Diablo Immortal for the past year is what has brought us to this colossal milestone, our anniversary celebration. We cannot thank you enough for all your valuable feedback and hours spent protecting Sanctuary from the demonic legions of the Burning Hells. Thank you for making this possible!
      This update is in tribute to the co-creators of Sanctuary, Lilith and Inarius, and ushers in the new Ancients’ Cradle Zone, three new limited-time events, one new Skill for each Class, and much more for veteran and new adventurers alike.
      After the upcoming maintenance periods, players with a Paragon Level lower than their Server’s Paragon Level can receive up to a 1,500% experience bonus to help them catch up and experience the features detailed in this major update.
      Before we dive into the next chapter of Diablo Immortal’s story, we are proud to announce the launch of 4 new servers with this major update: Peace Warders (English server in Europe), Marius (German server in Europe), Kesor (Polish server in Europe), and 連鎖閃電 (Chinese server in East Asia). In our next content update, which is coming in about two weeks, we will introduce another wave of Server Merges for Japanese servers.
      As with previous Content Updates, there will be server maintenance starting on June 14, from 5 p.m.–7 p.m. PDT for Oceania, China, East Asia, Southeast Asia, and Europe Servers, and on June 15, from 1 a.m.–3 a.m. PDT for servers in the Americas. After the maintenance has concluded, all items mentioned below will be live—specific dates for any content going live afterward are provided below.

      New Zone and Questline: Ancients’ Cradle

      Your next journey takes you to Ancients’ Cradle, a remote island in the Forgotten Sea. Meet the ancient Lilin and Inari peoples--whose lineage can be traced back to Sanctuary’s creation--as you continue to pursue the Cult of Terror following your retrieval of the Pathstone. You must keep your wits about you adventurer, for the Cult of Terror will stop at nothing to purify the Worldstone, putting the power of creation in the hands of Diablo himself.
      To visit the Ancients’ Cradle Zone and embark on its main questline, you must first reach Hell Difficulty VI and complete the Fare You Well prologue quest. Speak with Zathan outside of Deckard Cain’s workshop to begin the prologue quest. The island is rife with sacred Lilin and Inari ruins to explore—you’ll also help quell rising tensions between the two groups, clean up corruption, and restore the island to its former glory across 8 new side quests.
      Don’t forget to hone your demon decimating skills before travelling to Ancient’s Cradle. This Zone is plagued by the Afflicted (locals who have been transformed into a new evil by the curse), Amalgamations (ravenous flora and fauna who will relegate you to the bottom of the island’s food chain), and Cradleguard (constructs sent into a never-ending frenzy because of the Pathstone’s removal from the island). There’s no shortage of new haunts from the Burning Hells to snuff out!
      Tensions are rising, adventure. Will you rise to meet them?

      Inferno Difficulty and Hearthrot Demons

      A hotter degree of difficulty has erupted from the depths of the Burning Hells: Inferno. To unlock Inferno Difficulty I you must defeat Phangwrth, Warmth-Feaster on Hell Difficulty VIII and be at least Paragon Level 800. To unlock Inferno Difficulties II and III, you must dispatch a new breed of evil, the Hearthrot Demons. Playing on Inferno Difficulty gives you access to the new Inferno Difficulty Leaderboards, new Legendary Items to enhance your build, and the new Stances combat mechanic.
      A Putrid Pack of Hell-Raisers has Ravaged Sanctuary—Meet the Hearthrot Demons
      Vhansoon, Desolation’s Scourge

      The moment of Vhansoon's emergence upon Sanctuary withered foliage and split the earth for miles around the Atrium Ignic. Those who gaze upon Desolation’s Scourge feel their teeth and nails start to splinter. Yet it is the beast’s most precise weapon, a great cannon from the Hellforge, that has claimed the greatest number of human lives.
      Defeating any of the Heartrot Demons drops new Demonic Remains, each of which match an applicable slot in the Helliquary.
      Strazos, Steadfast Decay

      Strazos views all life as a steppingstone, allowing him to take his place as the end of all things. The Steadfast Decay longs to oversee the slow rot of Sanctuary. He feeds on souls locked in his Entropic Prison, draining them of their life while they watch their essence used to conquer the living.
      Defeating Strazos on Inferno Difficulty I alone or with a party unlocks Inferno Difficulty II.
      Gebdu, Mountain Breaker

      A creature of solitude, Gebdu strives to purge the land of life, leaving behind a bare and desolate world. The Mountain Breaker relies on his massive strength and size to shatter towns and collapse caverns, reducing any creature to paste on which his children feed. Gebdu was once shown a vision of Sanctuary, and now wishes to see it all crumble at once.
      Khuluul the Crooked Grin

      Khuluul enjoys watching a city burn like the rest of his ilk, but he finds greater pleasure in tricking a city’s residents into lighting their own kindling. No destruction is sweeter than the destruction of trust. Those who stumble into his Crooked Castelet soon become his puppets, wetting their hands with the blood of friends and family, denied the mercy of death until their new master is satisfied, and he is never satisfied.
      Defeating Khuluul the Crooked Grin on Inferno Difficulty II unlocks Inferno Difficulty III.
      Yamnaal of the Deluge

      Yamnaal's joy in slaying mortals is downright subdued next to his relish in the erosion of everything around him. Endless, corrosive rain heralds his appearance; even the sightless tlatch that share his prey have had their eyes worn away in the damp of the sunken grotto.
      Saarodan, Sky-Sunderer

      The Fulminous Parapet once secured the mountain pass between Aranoch and Khanduras in the time of Rakkis, but now it is home to a demon that has broken the sky into subservience. Saarodan cackles with thunderous glee as his victims flee in panic, for both they and the Sky-Sunderer know that no one can outrun lightning; no one can escape the reach of the sky.
      New to the Helliquary Gauntlet: Hearthrot Demons
      The vile Hearthrot demons can now be fought in the Helliquary Gauntlet. Completing the Inferno Helliquary Gauntlet for each difficulty level will earn you Cosmetics from the Scions of the Storm Argent set. Visit Rayek to begin the challenge of a lifetime.

      New Combat Mechanic: Stances

      A martial innovation from the times of yore has once resurfaced in Sanctuary. It is time you worked new Stances into your nightmare-slaying routine. To utilize Stances, you must be in the Inferno Difficulty. Once you’re playing on this difficulty, you’ll see a second set of weapon slots unlocked; equip items to these slots for Stances to automatically enable itself. The additional slots can have gems socketed into them to further enhance your character’s power.
      Now that you’ve got the right equipment, it’s time to teach you how to use your Stances. All Classes have both an Offensive and Defensive Stance. They each provide unique passive bonuses that further the proficiencies of your Class and can be shifted between every 30 seconds while in combat. Upon switching Stances, the passive bonus will be thrice as strong for the first 3 seconds, allowing you to immediately reap the benefits of your Offensive of Defensive stance.
      Listed below are the Offensive and Defensive Stances and their passive bonuses for each Class.

      There are a few additional things to note about Stances:
      While 4 weapons are equipped, all Legendary Gems, Legendary Item Affixes, and Attributes will be active. Offensive bonuses of equipped weapons are reduced to 60% power while in the Defensive Stance. You may only equip one Legendary Item that affects each Skill while Stances are active. Stances inject another layer of variety into the moment-to-moment combat of Diablo Immortal. We are excited to expand the ways in which players can react to whatever Hell throws their way and seeing our community take their builds to new heights.

      3 New Legendary Gems

      Three new Legendary Gems have joined the line up. Experiment with these gems to discover new synergies and make your character’s build blaze like the flames of the Burning Hells. The below values for each gem reflect their power at Rank-10:

      Exigent Echo (One-Star Gem): Your block chance is increased by 30% for 6 seconds when you receive a Critical Hit. Cannot occur more often than once every 20 seconds. During the effect, damage received when blocking is reduced by 12%.

      Ironbane (Two-Star Gem): Your Channeling skills have a 10% chance to dissolve enemy armor for 6 seconds, increasing the damage they take by 15%. Cannot occur against the same target more often than once every 20 seconds. The dissolve effect also reduces the Movement Speed of enemies by 16%.

      Starfire Shard (Five-star Gem): When you deal damage, you have a 30% chance to rain meteorites in an area, dealing 500% base damage + 2026 in total. Cannot occur more often than once every 20 seconds. The meteorites also scorch the ground for 2 seconds, Burning enemies in the area and dealing 40% base damage every second.
      Modify Your Drop Tables
      From June 15, 3:00 a.m.–July 13, 2:59 a.m. server time, players will have the option to enable a modified drop table for their Legendary Crests when running Elder Rifts. Once enabled, whenever you receive a Five-Star Legendary Gem as a drop, there’s a 50% chance it will be Starfire Shard. Additionally, whenever you receive a Two-Star Legendary Gem as a drop, there’s a 50% chance it will be Mother’s Lament.
      Then, from July 13, 3 a.m.–August 3, 3 a.m. server time, players can enable a modified drop table for their Legendary Crests which allows them to choose 12 Five-Star Legendary Gems. Whenever you receive a Five-Star Legendary Gem, it is guaranteed to be one of the gems you selected.
      Back to Top
      New Set: Seeds of Sown Gold

      Seeds of Sown Gold is a new item set that’s obtainable from dungeons in Inferno Difficulty I and higher. This set is centered around Channeled Skills and rewards players who continually channel to deal additional damage.
      Seeds of Sown Gold (2-Piece Bonus): Continually Channeling a skill against the same enemy gradually increases the damage of that skill up to a maximum of 30%.
      Seeds of Sown Gold (4-Piece Bonus): After you stop Channeling a skill, enemies hit by it take an additional explosion of damage for 30% of the damage dealt to them by that Channeled skill.
      Seeds of Sown Gold (6-Piece Bonus): After you start Channeling a skill, gain Artisan's Endurance for 8 seconds. While Channeling under the effect of Artisan's Endurance, you are immune to knockback effects and damage dealt to you is reduced by 40%. This effect cannot occur more often than once every 40 seconds.
      Seeds of Sown Gold items can be acquired from the following dungeons:
      Artisan’s Care (Neck): Silent Monastery Gleaming Gullers (Boots): Cavern of Echoes Harvest of Dust (Gloves): Destruction’s End Revolving Folly (Belt): Pit of Anguish Roundray (Ring): Temple of Namari Unearthed Light (Ring): Temple of Namari Back to Top
      Justinian’s Favor Limited-Time Event

      With Hell’s demons running amok, wealth and safety are scarce in Sanctuary. The people of Westmarch turn to King Justinian IV, seeking leadership and reassurance. Instead, Justinian suppresses the concerns of his subjects with paltry amounts of coin, obsessing over his beloved artifacts instead. May Justinian’s favor rain down upon you too, adventurer.
      Each day from June 15, 3 a.m.–July 13, 3 a.m. server time, you can embark on Justinian’s Favor tasks. Completing seven tasks will earn you a key. Finishing 3 Challenge Rifts, and logging in once during the event’s duration will earn you one additional key each. Use all three of your keys to unlock the chest in the event’s menu and you’ll receive these rewards for your bravery: 3 Legendary Crests, 7 Rare Crests, 3 random One-Star Legendary Gems.

      Conqueror Limited-Time PvP Event

      An ancient fighting pit where the Fahiran aristocracy held brutal games has been uncovered in Shassar. Fight tooth and nail during the Conqueror limited-time PvP event to bring honor to your name and riches to your collection.
      From June 16, 3 a.m.–June 28, 3 a.m. server time, players can enter a Conqueror PvP match using their own build or select a preconstructed character build for their Class. Each match contains multiple strongholds that must be captured by your team—the first team to earn 1,500 points by holding strongholds shall emerge victorious! Through participating in these matches, you can complete daily and challenge tasks to earn a random reward, such as Legendary Items, Set Items, and more.
      Only fair contest is allowed in the fighting pits—here are the rules of engagement:
      All characters will be set to Level 60. The Rank of all Legendary Gear and Set Gear will be set to 1. The Rank for all Legendary Gems on your character will be set to 10. The integrity of the fighting pits is also maintained by disabling all bonuses from:
      Resonance and Combat Rating Clans and Warbands Normal Gems, Charms, and Horadric Legacy Stances (see the feature updates section for more info on Stances) Back to Top
      Proving of the Rift Limited-Time Event

      Overcoming the horrors encountered in the Challenge Rifts just became a little more fruitful. Each week from June 26, 3 a.m.–July 24, 3 a.m. server time, players can earn Proving the Rift rewards by completing Challenge Rifts and placing on the event’s Leaderboard. The Leaderboard placements will refresh each week, affording new players the opportunity to cement their name among Sanctuary’s finest. The Proving of the Rift event is your opportunity to score the new Nimbus Cosmetic—they are swells of cosmic energy that move with your character for a limited time.
      Weeks 1 and 3 will reward players with the Arcana Nimbus Cosmetic.

      Whereas players can earn the Igneous Nimbus Cosmetic from weeks 2 and 4.

      Here is a complete list of all rewards that can be earned each week of the event based upon your Leaderboard placement. Players can attempt Challenge Rifts as many times as they would like, with their best score being saved at the end of the week.

      New Legendary Items, Skills, and Class Balance
      New Skills
      We’re adding an additional Skill for each Class that unlocks at level 53. The aim with these new Skills is to provide additional group utility or fill niches to better round out the toolkit of each Class.
      Barbarian
      Sunder - 12 Second Cooldown – Damage: Briefly launch into the air and smash the ground with your weapon, generating a huge shockwave that deals damage to all enemies in the area while also increasing all damage they take by 30% for 6 seconds. Players will take increased damage for 3 seconds.

      Feature Updates
      Combat Rating Adjustment
      Combat Rating and Primary Attribute are now separate statistics. The Combat Rating for items will be displayed directly on them and is no longer based on the item’s attribute.
      Items that drop will now have greater Primary Attribute diversity and an increased chance to have a higher Combat Rating. This is to help players grow their Combat Rating quickly and introduce more variety in their Item choices.
      Battleground and Challenge Rift Schedule Change
      On some servers, Battleground would reset in as little as 3 weeks, not leaving enough time for players to push to their desired rank. While on other servers, an Immortal reign might be strong and last for longer periods of time, resulting in less rewards because the season doesn't end as frequently. Similarly, Challenge Rifts have weekly and monthly rewards that aren't directly tied to any in-game events. The following changes aim to update and unify the way this content in Diablo Immortal resets, to make the rewards and timing more consistent and forgiving.
      Starting on June 16, all current Battleground seasons will end, and rewards will be distributed accordingly. Battleground and Challenge Rifts will now reset on a 10-week cycle that is independent of Cycle of Strife—the rewards are being updated accordingly as well. In addition to the seasonal one-time bracket and end of season rewards, Battleground will provide a weekly reward based upon your rank. Battleground participation is also being removed as a requirement for Badges of Honor because it's no longer tied to the reign being reset.
      Battleground rewards:
      Weekly Rewards: Purification Shards, Charms, Scrap End of Season Rewards: Reforge Stones, Normal Gems Challenge Rifts will continue to provide weekly rewards, but the monthly rewards will instead be distributed at the end of the season. The 2, 3, and 4 player Leaderboards have been removed as well. Our goal is to consolidate the seasonal gameplay into one event that happens on a fixed schedule. This is being done to provide players with more time to complete the activities and normalize the rewards for all players regardless of the Cycle of Strife cadence on their server.
      Challenge Rift rewards:
      Rift Weekly Rewards: Gold, Hilts, Scrap End of Season Rewards: Enigmatic Crystals, Hilts Hidden Lair Rewards
      Hidden Lairs now reward guaranteed Normal Gems for each objective, up to a weekly maximum of 21 Hidden Lairs (42 floors). The entrance menu will still indicate whether the player has reached the individual caps for each gem type, but it’s now a weekly total instead of daily. This should reduce the effort needed to earn all associated rewards and assist players who might be catching up.
      Accursed Towers
      To give smaller Clans increased opportunity to claim towers and allow a smoother start to the season on servers with higher populations, we made some adjustments to Accursed Towers:
      The maximum number of towers available in each season has increased from 150 to 200. The number of regions has increased from 3 to 4. 2 Regions will unlock during the first week of each season. Ancestral Tableau
      To support the adjustments to Combat Rating on gear, the Ancestral Tableau will now have a separate stat for Combat Rating. Max Bonus values for each stat will use the highest value among items placed in the Tableau.
      For example, if Player A has a triple stat item that has 200 Intellect, Willpower, and Fortitude—plus 500 Combat Rating—and Player B has a double stat weapon with 300 Vitality and Willpower—plus 550 Combat Rating—then the Max Bonus for the Ancestral Tableau would be: 200 Intellect and Fortitude, and 300 Vitality, Willpower, and 550 Combat Rating. Since there's no other weapons in the Ancestral Tableau in this example, the Max Bonus for Strength would be 0.
      The drop rate of Ancestral Weapons has increased as well.
      Deeds of Valor Badges
      The Akeba's Chosen Shadows Clan leader badge now requires that you be the leader of a top 10 Clan by the end of the Immortal reign. Additionally, Battleground will no longer count towards your Deeds of Valor badge because Battleground no longer resets with the Cycle of Strife.
      The requirements to earn the Indomitable Deeds of Valor badge have also been adjusted to make it more readily obtainable for Immortals.
      Shadows Daily Quest Change
      The Shadows Daily Challenge that required players to “win a Battleground match” is now “play a Battleground match” to allow for quicker completion.
      Immortal Eternal Crown Bonuses
      When a new Immortal reign starts, the Immortal's Eternal Crown bonuses will now begin as a 16% Damage Increase and 16% Defense Increase. The maximum benefit will persist as a 32% Damage Increase and 32% Defense Increase.
      Paragon Specialization in Battleground
      Paragon Specializations can no longer be swapped during an active Battleground. They may still be swapped prior to the start of battle.
      Codex Objectives for Inferno Difficulties
      There are new Codex Objectives for Inferno Difficulties I, II, and III. They unlock at Paragon Level 800, 900, and 1,000 respectively.
      Prodigy’s Path Refresh
      We're refreshing Prodigy's Path to complement the new Paragon Level cap.
      Prodigy's Path IV will unlock when players reach Level 700. Prodigy's Path I will disappear from the menu once players unlock Prodigy's Path IV. All unclaimed rewards will be sent to your Inbox. Players can continue to claim Prodigy's Path IV rewards after Paragon Level 800, based upon the Expected Paragon Level, if they choose to stop leveling at Paragon Level 799 Hero's Journey
      Following the maintenance windows for this major content update, all current progress for Hero’s Journey Chapters 1 through 6 will be paused and a new Hero’s Journey will begin. Only Chapters 1 through 4 will be available for the new Hero’s Journey, with Chapters 5 and 6 coming later. This Hero’s Journey is planned to be available for about six months, like previous iterations.
      While completing their Chapters, adventurers will receive a bevy of rewards, and once Chapter 4 is completed, they will receive the Resplendent Journey Frame—a token of triumph.
      Activity Scheduler
      Scheduled activities created by your fellow Warband or Clan members will now display a red dot to increase their visibility.

      Accursed Towers Clan-based Game Mode

      Recently, cryptic obelisks from many eons ago were unearthed, each exuding an aura of power. Sanctuary’s denizens desire to claim such power for themselves but do not yet know how to do so. Accursed Towers is a new game mode that features both PvE and PvP gameplay. Clans will compete to claim ownership of towers, thereby providing powerful bonuses to all Clan members and the opportunity to acquire new Cursed Items. Players must be in a Clan to participate in Accursed Towers.
      The description below of Accursed Towers is only a bird’s eye view of the game mode. We plan to provide additional details via in-game mail after the maintenance period that will help Clan Leaders make the most of Accursed Towers. There are also in-game tutorials that can help quickly get you up to speed on this new feature. To access those, click or tap the “i” icons in the Accursed Towers menu.
      How to Claim Towers

      Each Clan may have up to 2 towers under their control per Season. At the end of each eight-week Season, the ownership of all towers will be reset.
      At the start of a Season, players will see many towers on the map to select from, all of which will be Unclaimed Towers. During the first week of a Season, from Monday, 3 a.m.–Saturday 7 p.m. server time, your Clan’s leader can select a tower through the Accursed Tower’s menu and attempt to claim it for your Clan, plunging your Clan into a PvE match against Hell’s minions for control of the tower by Purifying it. Only 1 tower can be claimed per Clan during the first week of the Season.

      While fighting demonic hordes for control of the tower, your Clan’s objective is to collect Cursed Shards from slain demons. However, players can’t simply attack enemies as they normally would. To deal damage to your foes, first you’ll need to locate and activate the tower’s Curse Sources. Doing so will make enemies vulnerable, allowing you to dispatch them and collect their Cursed Shards. Once the timer runs out, the top 10 Clan members with the highest Cursed Shard amounts will have them added to your team’s total. A Clan can choose to do as many runs to collect Cursed Shards at the same tower as they desire, but only the highest team total will be retained. If your Clan has collected the most Cursed Shards among all Clans vying for that specific tower by Saturday at 7 p.m. server time, then your Clan will claim the tower.

      Claiming a tower is cause for celebration within your Clan, but now you must defend it. Hell’s minions will attempt to retake their stolen home. Once your Corruption meter reaches a certain amount, demonic incursions will follow. Members of your Clan must come to defend your tower promptly or else it will be lost and can be reclaimed by another Clan.

      There is a way to ward off Hell’s mindless marauders, though: by powering up your tower. Within the Accursed Tower’s menu, your Clan leader can choose to power up your tower. Doing so will not only end the attacks on it from demons but increase the bonuses provided by your tower and periodic rewards provided by the Rewards Chest inside of it. Beware, as powering up your tower does come at a cost—other Clans will be able to challenge your clan to a PvP match for control of the tower.
      Contesting a Tower Through PvP

      The rewards gained from towers sound desirable, right? The other Clans on your Server will certainly think so. Starting the second week of a Season, Clans can have a second tower under their control. From Saturday, 9 p.m.–Sunday 12 a.m. server time, Clans will be able to attempt to challenge for tower ownership from another Clan through an all-out PvP match. Should your Clan prevail, they’ll not only leave with bragging rights and a new tower to receive periodic rewards from, but also a bevy of rewards from participating in the PvP match, which can include Cursed Items.

      Because the first season of Accursed Towers begins mid-week, the schedule for the first week will differ from subsequent seasons. The gameplay itself will be as detailed above. Here’s the schedule:
      March 30 after maintenance period–March 31 at 3 a.m. server time: The Clan Leader will decide which tower they would like to try to claim. March 31, 3 a.m.–April 1, 7 p.m. server time: Collect Cursed Shards at chosen tower. April 1, 7 p.m. server time: Cursed Shard Clan totals are counted and the Clan with the most at each tower claims that tower. Cursed Items

      Cursed Items are a new type of Legendary Item that have a Cursed Property. They are obtainable from completing PvP matches and can also be dropped by enemies while collecting Cursed Shards from a PvE match.
      Cursed Items come with both a Positive and Negative Property attached to them. Neither Property will activate unless you have at least one other Cursed Item equipped that shares the same Positive Property. If you have two or more equipped Cursed Items, you will receive both the Positive and Negative Property effects from both. Positive Properties will grow in power as you equip multiple Cursed Items with the same Positive Property, with increases occurring at 4 and 6 Items.
      For example, let’s say you have Shoulders with the following Positive and Negative Properties:
      Your summoning skills have a chance to release a demonic roar dealing damage to nearby enemies. Increases Cooldown of Dash skills. Then you stumble across a pair of Boots with the following Positive and Negative Properties:
      Your summoning skills have a chance to release a demonic roar dealing damage to nearby enemies. Reduces Primary Attack damage. Since both items share the same Positive Property, equipping both items will provide you with their shared Positive Property but also their Negative Properties: Increases Cooldown of Dash skills and reduces Primary Attack damage.
      Cursed Items act as a double-edged sword but can provide you with extremely powerful bonuses that will bolster your character’s build!

      Dread Reaver Dungeon

Climb aboard and continue the Main Quest of Diablo Immortal, track the elusive Cult of Terror, and try to reclaim a stolen Worldstone shard before they can deliver it to one of their leaders, the Bride of Hell.

      3 New Legendary Gems

      Three new Legendary Gems have been added to help take your character's build to new heights. We take delight in seeing players bring to life unique builds using each newest batch of Legendary Gems at their disposal, and we’re looking forward to seeing how players will utilize this latest trio. The below values for each gem reflect their Rank-10 values:

      Pain Clasp (Two-Star Gem): Increases damage dealt by 24% to enemies suffering from a continuous damage effect. When an enemy suffering from continuous damage is within 10 yards, your Movement Speed is increased by 6%.
      Gloom Cask (Five-Star Gem): Your Primary Attack unleashes an Aspect of Gloom for 6 seconds, during which time your Primary Attack will trigger gloom blades that deal 68% base damage + 275. Enemies hit by the gloom blades take 24% increased damage from your Primary Attacks for 3 seconds. Cannot occur more often than once every 20 seconds.
      Back to Top
      New Set Items: Banquet of Eyes

      Banquet of Eyes (2-Piece Bonus): Damage dealt to enemies suffering from your damage over time effects increased by 15%.
      Banquet of Eyes (4-Piece Bonus): Your Critical Hit Chance is increased by 2.5%, up to 25%, for every damage over time effect you inflict upon nearby enemies.

      Feature Updates
      Activity Rewards Increase
      Many activities in Diablo Immortal will now provide additional rewards or experience.
      Rite of Exile: Players belonging to both the winning and losing sides will be rewarded with random items (including a guaranteed Legendary and Set Item), Hilts, and Scrap Materials. These rewards are provided directly after completing Rite of Exile. Raid the Vault: Monsters killed inside the Vault have a chance to reward items of a random rarity, experience, and Gold. Shadow War: Players that engage in the Shadow War will be rewarded with increased experience and a guaranteed random Legendary item. Defend the Vault: Players that successfully defend the Vault will be rewarded with Hilts, experience, Gold, and Scrap Materials. Immortal Age of Advancement Chests will reward Hilts, items of a random rarity, and Gold. Heavy Ornate Chests will reward one Monstrous Essence. All Main Quests reward additional experience. Players will receive a Rare Crest as they complete Exploration achievements for each zone, with a milestone at 50%, 70%, and 100%. Battleground and Rite of Exile Balance
      The Defense win condition of killing Attackers in both Battleground and Rite of Exile has increased from 55 to 65 kills.
      Shadow War Time Change
      Shadow War will now begin at 7:30 p.m. server time on Thursdays for the Preliminary Round and 7:30 p.m. server time on Saturdays for the Final and Third Place Playoff Rounds. The countdown to the Shadow War’s beginning will start at 7:10 p.m. server time to give players enough time to gather and organize for their fight.
      Rare Crests
      Up to 10 Rare Crests may be used with each Elder Rift run.
      Hero’s Journey Chapters 5 and 6
      Chapter 5 and 6 of Hero’s Journey have unlocked! To continue walking the path to glory in Chapter 5, you must have completed chapters 1-4. Here’s a look at the rewards you will receive for completing these new Chapters.
      Chapter 5:
      1 Legendary Crest 900 Hilts 30 Aspirant’s Key 50,000 Gold Chapter 6:
      Boundary Walker Portal Cosmetic 1 Legendary Crest 900 Hilts 36 Aspirant’s Key Hilts Vendor
      The Hilts Vendor has just increased their inventory! The following two transactions may be performed up to 15 times a week each:
      Trading 100 Hiltsfor 50 Scrap Materials Trading 75 Hilts for 5 Enchanted Dust Activity Calendar and Scheduler
      We are introducing some quality-of-life improvements that will make using the Activities Calendar and Scheduler more convenient.
      The tap area in the Warbands and Clan menus has been increased. Activities that occur “today” or “tomorrow” will state that instead of the numerical date. Navigation Menu
      The Navigation menu also received a few quality-of-life improvements to work in tandem with the Clan-centric features released in this Major Update.
      A new Clan tab has been added to the Navigation menu. Both the new Accursed Tower game mode and Clan-related features that were previously found located in the Faction tab can be found in the new Clan tab. The Quest tab will be removed from the Navigation menu. Quests can still be accessed via the Quest Tracker. These changes are solely for the UI and do not alter the gameplay of the features they support.
      New Bestiary Entries
      We're adding 20 new Horadric Bestiary entries to catalogue enemies fought in Stormpoint and new Helliquary bosses. They're available wherever you slaughter monsters! After a player collects 10 Bestiary entries, they’ll receive a Rare Crest. Players will also receive a Legendary Crest after collecting 50 and 100 Bestiary Entries.
      Clan and Cycle of Strife

      Finding, joining, and recruiting for a Clan will now be more accessible than ever. As Clans become more critical in the continual struggle to control towers around Sanctuary, we want to arm both players and Clan Leaders with more means to find like-minded individuals. As such, we have made some improvements:
      When players search for available Clans to join, they will be sorted from highest to lowest on the list according to their current number of Online Players. Players without a Clan will receive more guidance on joining a clan and more easily see suggestions for Clans containing a high number of active players. Players currently in a Clan can now apply to a new Clan without leaving their current Clan. If accepted to the new Clan, they will automatically leave the old one and join the new one. Clan Leaders will now have a Member Recruitment interface available under the Clan tab, making it easier for them to find both players without a clan and in clans with low membership. Dark Clan Leaders can now directly invite Adventurers to join them. If an Adventurer accepts, they will automatically become a Shadow. Hide Helmet Cosmetic Option

      We hope your character has recently visited the Westmarch Barber for a touch up, because you can now hide their helmet for select Cosmetic Sets. To hide your character’s helmet for eligible Cosmetic Sets, navigate to the Cosmetics menu and click the Hide Helmet button on the bottom left corner of the Cosmetic preview screen.

      Blizzard has posted notes for the next Diablo Immortal content update which brings more Stash tabs, another wave of server merges, the Season 10 Battle Pass, Perils of the Fen limited-time event, and more.
      (Source)
      Good tidings await, adventurer.
      Since our last encounter, many adventurers have found good fortune in Tong-Shi’s Renewal, escaped the recesses of their mind in the Fractured Plane, and tinkered with 36 new Legendary Items to dream up unspeakably powerful class builds. The Burning Hells have much in store for you, so grab your favorite elixir and let’s dive in.
      A third wave of Server Merges are coming to Diablo Immortal on February 22. This wave will focus on our servers in the East Asia and Southeast Asia regions, improving the ability for players in these regions to Party up with others regardless of the server they play on. Know that we will continue to monitor player populations across all servers and merge additional servers as needed. Here’s a complete list of all servers that will merge in wave three:
      Region
      Merging Servers
      East Asia
      維雷克
      基德
      喬森
      亞特瑪
      多頭蛇
      霸圖克
      馬利杜思
      拉庫尼
      維拉
        Southeast Asia
      Anu
      Blood Raven
      Zann Esu
      Peth
      Bloodrime
      Ghirn
      Yl'nira
      Enigma
      Agronix
      Verathiel
      Vasily
      Nilfur
      Gillian
      For more information on how Server Merge works, please see our previous blog where we announced the first wave of Server Merges.
      Also on February 22, we’ll be making some adjustments to Normal Gems. These gems will receive an additional attribute which modifies the base stats of the item they’re socketed into. This change will ultimately provide more uses for Normal Gems; therefore, to maintain the integrity of Wynton’s Grand Market, all Normal Gems will be removed from the market on February 22 during the server maintenance period. All current rules for listing Normal Gems in the market will remain unchanged and these gems can be relisted in the market once the server maintenance period ends. Additionally, we’ll be modifying Hidden Lairs to provide players with additional ways to obtain tradeable gems.
      Before delving further into this Content Update, let’s take a moment to welcome Turkish speakers to Diablo Immortal! After the server maintenance, players can now slay demons across Sanctuary with in-game text-based Turkish language support.
      As with previous Content Updates, there will be server maintenance starting on February 7, from 4 p.m.–6 p.m. PST for Oceania, China, East Asia, Southeast Asia, and Europe Servers, and on February 8, from 12 a.m.–2 a.m. PST for servers in the Americas. After the maintenance has concluded, all items mentioned below will be live—specific dates for any content going live afterward are provided below.

      Void Beyond Cosmetic Set
      Bug Fixes
      Diablo Immortal Developer Q&A Series
      Feature Updates
      Additional Stash Tabs
      The ability for players to have additional storage tabs in their Stash is one of our most requested feature updates. Now, players can unlock up to two additional Stash tabs from within the Stash menu for their character.
      The first Stash tab can be permanently unlocked for 2,000 Platinum.
      The second Stash tab can be unlocked while you have an active Boon of Plenty and will only provide additional storage space during this duration. If your Boon of Plenty expires, any items stored within this Stash tab will remain there until you withdraw them. Additional items cannot be stored in this Stash tab unless you have an active Boon of Plenty.
      Adjustments to Boss Invulnerable Phrases
      In our previous Content Update, we made a change that removed the invulnerability phases between killing Segithis’ Left and Right Legs. In this Content Update, we are removing or shortening the invulnerability phase duration from many boss encounters, such as the Ancient Nightmare and Glacial Colossus fights. Going forward, we will continue to evaluate the player’s experience in boss encounters and will make additional adjustments as needed.
      Path of Blood Rewards
      Several improvements have been made to the Path of Blood system:
      Upon completion of a floor, players will now receive gold, experience, and items as a reward. You may now skip directly to the nearest boss floor to your current floor, such as Floor 10 if you have completed Floor 7. If you complete that boss floor, you’ll receive credit and rewards for all skipped floors, the boss floor, and will receive the option to skip directly to the next boss floor. Hell Difficulty Notification
      Even in a place like Sanctuary, reaching a new Hell Difficulty level calls for celebration. Now, when a player unlocks a new Hell Difficulty level, a congratulations screen detailing the new features available to them will pop up.
      Auto-Follow Party Member
      By clicking or tapping on a member of their Party, players can now automatically follow that player. Any movement or combat that you manually initiate or being attacked by a monster will interrupt auto-following.
      Player Profile Display
      If a player is part of a Warband, their Warband’s name can be seen in the Player Profile menu.
      Combat Rating Visibility
      Combat Rating is an integral aspect of Diablo Immortal. To aid players in easily accessing their Combat Rating, we have moved this statistic to a higher location within the Attributes interface.
      Bounty Rewards Increase
      Any bounty that previously provided 1.2x rewards will now provide 5x rewards.

      Perils of the Fen Limited-Time Event

      A dangerous torrent of demonic destruction has flooded the murky waterways of Bilefen, grinding daily life to a sludgy halt. Sanctuary’s citizens who call this precarious network of swamps home are on their last leg—coming to their rescue is imperative.
      Channel the arcane energy coursing through your mortal vessel to overcome the Perils of the Fen limited-time event. From February 8 at 3 a.m.–February 16 at 3 a.m. server time, as you complete Perils of the Fen tasks, you’ll receive rewards for your heroics. Racking up enough completed tasks will also unlock milestone rewards for you—a testament to your valor.

      Season 10 Battle Pass: Alchemist’s Admixture

      “Despite centuries of setbacks and misunderstandings, the alchemist’s creed is unchanged: anything is possible if you are curious enough.”
      -Rogue Alchemist
      The Alchemist’s Admixture, a new Battle Pass devoted to unwavering curiosity, has been uncovered in Diablo Immortal, and with it, the Season 10 Battle Pass on February 16, at 3:00 a.m. server time. This Battle Pass hosts 40 ranks worth of challenges and rewards, such as Legendary Gems, Crests, Hilts, and more.
      The Season 10 Battle Pass only runs until March 16, at 2:59 a.m. server time—begin slaying demons and climbing your way through the ranks today!

      Void Beyond Cosmetic Set

      The stars are eyes that do not blink for thousands of years. They see all, poring over each being’s soul like pages in a tome. Stars evoke a sense of wonder, serve as a source of light, and can even guide us through confounding places such as the void beyond our understanding.
      Allow the cosmos to predict your path through Hell and back—the Void Beyond Standard Cosmetic Set is available in the in-game shop for 1,000 Eternal Orbs.

      36 New Legendary Items
      With a greater challenge comes access to truly powerful items designed for beating back the tides of Hell. Note that the below Legendary Items are only available in Hell Difficulty VI or higher. We are making this change to the new Legendary Items that are added into Diablo Immortal to give players unique rewards to strive towards as they move upward in Hell Difficulty.

Akkhan's Glory (Shoulders): Falling Sword damage increased by 10%. Ammonis Cornua (Head): Shield Charge also grants you 10% increased damage for three seconds. Blinding Wall (Off-Hand): Condemn also unleashes bright light that Blinds enemies for one seconds. Cuisse of Scorn (Pants): Condemn deals 10% increased damage for each harmful effect the enemy suffers from, up to a maximum of 30%. Horn Splitter (Main Hand): Sacred Fire now ignites enemies, Burning them over two seconds. Demon Hunter
      Hawra's Heave-Under (Head): Daring Swing also increases your Movement Speed by 30% for three seconds. The Potboiler (Pants): Knife Trap now places more durable traps that trigger when you take damage. Preferred Instrument (Off-Hand): After using Knockback Shot, your damage is increased by 10% for three seconds.

      Arc of the Ascendants (Main Hand): Deadly Reach now also has a 25% chance to make enemies vulnerable, increasing damage taken by 10% for two seconds.

Rampant and Inscrutable (Chest): Lightning Nova now conjures a lightning orb that orbits you, firing chain lightning at your target when you use your Primary Attack. Legendary Essence Extraction
      A new method of Essence Extraction has been discovered! You can enhance your Legendary Attributes to increase their power by extracting the same essences multiple times. Legendary equipment can no longer be salvaged at the Blacksmith, and instead must be extracted. Essence Extraction still provides players with the same Upgrade Materials they would get from salvaging, but now, as you find duplicate Legendary equipment, your overall power will increase too.
      When you find a new Legendary item, your first extraction will pull out the Legendary Essence and store it for you to inherit later, as it always has. Further extractions will grant you Essence Energy to increase your Essence Mastery level—however, extracting Essence Energy from a particular Legendary item will become more difficult with each Essence Energy you obtain from it, and eventually you will no longer be able to extract the energy from that Legendary item.
      Additionally, you will now receive Upgrade Materials on the first extraction for every Legendary Essence and no longer must choose between gaining a Legendary Essence or Upgrade Materials.
      As your Essence Mastery level increases, it will further enhance the power of all your Legendary Attributes. Some skills will receive damage bonuses, while others might receive cooldown reduction, or other effects. You can always view your current power and what bonuses you will get at the next Essence Mastery level at Zamina, the Essence Transfer NPC in Westmarch.
      Dungeon Set Item Drops
      All Dungeons will now drop a guaranteed Set Item after many Dungeon completions in a row that did not result in a Set Item being dropped. Dungeons boosted by the Codex have a lower threshold before a guaranteed Set Item is dropped.
      Cross-Server Dungeons
      When a player is trying to find a Party for a Dungeon, if the Party Finder fails to find other players to join, it will search other Servers to fill the Party. Players can also invite players from other Servers to join the Party.
      Immortal System Improvements
      Immortals will now receive more information about the Shadows when alerted to Defend the Vault. Immortal Parties in the queue will see the Shadow Party that has queued to defend against them, along with the relative strength of the Shadow Party versus their Party. The Party Leader of the Immortal group will then be able to decide to either accept defending against the Shadow Party or pass, which will give another Immortal Party in the queue the opportunity to defend.
      Immortal Party leaders can also automatically pass all Shadow Parties that are relatively stronger than their Party by enabling a new button in the Defend the Vault interface.
      Rejoining the Shadows Faction
      We are making the experience of rejoining the Shadows after a new Cycle of Strife begins easier. The lottery system has been replaced with a first-come, first-served system. An Adventurer who successfully signs up during one of the three daily recruitment periods beginning at 1:00, 7:00, and 10:00 p.m. server time can instantly embark on the trial to become a Shadow.
      To join the Shadows faction, speak with the Mysterious Patron located in Westmarch’s Wolf City Tavern during the above-mentioned recruitment periods.
      Treasure Hunter Paragon Tree
      The Treasure Hunter Paragon Tree has been updated to remove the restriction of outdoor areas from the Treasure Find, Gold Find, and Lucky specialization skills.
      Battleground End of Season Ceremony
      When a Battleground season ends, players will now receive a summary of their previous Battleground season the first time they talk to the Battleground Captain.
      Converting Adventurer Clan
      Converting an Adventurer Clan to a Dark Clan will now only cost five Akeba’s Signets.
      New Resonance Wings
      Two new sets of Resonance Wings have been added at the Resonance milestones of 2,000 and 4,000.
      Back to Top
      Tong-Shi’s Renewal Lunar New Year Event

      Tong-Shi invites you to his Renewal—a call to bask in the fading glow of a finished year and begin the cycle anew—welcoming a new year with open arms and optimism.
      From January 16, 3:00 a.m.–February 6 2:59 a.m. server time, players can complete up to three tasks a day to earn festive rewards, such as Red Bags and Tseym.
      Players can also receive rewards such as the Divine Framework of Xiansai Portrait Frame and With a Bang Emoji for logging in on the following days: January 18, January 21, January 22, January 25, January 28, January 29, February 1, February 4, and February 5.
      If you miss a login reward for one of these dates, do not worry, you’ll be given a quest to complete which will provide you with the missed reward once finished. Note that missed rewards must be claimed in chronological order.
      Deliver and Receive Blessings with Red Bags and Tseym

      Red Bags are celebratory Tong-Shi’s Renewal rewards that can be gifted to a friend. You’ll not only receive rewards when you open Red Bags sent to you, but you’ll also receive rewards for sending Red Bags to friends. Spread the blessings of Tong-Shi’s Renewal by sending and receiving as many Red Bags as you can get your hands on!
      Completing daily event tasks can also yield Tseym. Turn in any Tseym you receive within the Tong-Shi’s Renewal event UI to receive ample rewards. Turning in Tseym has a second effect too—each Tseym will add towards Server-wide milestones, with each milestone met rewarding all players on that Server with a bevy of Battle Points. Players who contribute 88 Tseym will also receive a random Legendry Item for their class.

      Lineage of Beasts Cosmetic Set

      How better to best the beasts of the Burning Hells than to become one yourself? Adorn this primal cosmetic and tap into a lineage of beasts to become Sanctuary’s ultimate apex predator. The Lineage of Beasts Standard Cosmetic Set can be purchased from the in-game shop for 1,000 Eternal Orbs.

      Season Nine Battle Pass: Wicked Wanderer

      “We traveled for an eternity across that arid wasteland. How long, I couldn’t say. And, always, a dark cloud seemed to follow us just over the horizon.”
      -A Lost Adventurer
      The Wicked Wanderer, a new Battle Pass devoted to communing with your sinister side, has skulked into Diablo Immortal, and with it, the Season Nine Battle Pass on January 19, at 3:00 a.m. server time. This Battle Pass hosts 40 ranks worth of challenges and rewards, such as Legendary Gems, Crests, Hilts, and more.
      The Season Nine Battle Pass only runs until February 16, at 2:59 a.m. server time—begin slaying demons and climbing your way through the ranks today!

      Fractured Plane Limited-Time Event

      In a place like Sanctuary, even those with the utmost mental fortitude can find themselves lost to the unrelenting darkness spread by the Burning Hells. Broken. Shattered. Trapped in the deepest recesses of their mind—entering the Fractured Plane is the only way forward.
      The Fractured Plane is a limited-time event where players enter an unexplored realm of their existence. A 15-floor gauntlet, inhabited by the fiercest minions the Hells can throw your way awaits. Your journey in the Fractured Plane begins without your usual gear, gems, and skills. Instead, you will be provided with a set of pre-selected skills for your class. To advance, you must rely solely on your wits, unstable gear you find, and the Chaos Coins you receive from progressing through hordes of demons. Best of all, only unstable gear of Legendary rarity will drop in the Fractured Plane, and items you receive will complement the skills you begin with, equipping you with the ability to make, and tweak, your build on the fly. When your journey in the Fractured Plane is over, all the unstable gear you’ve collected will vanish.
      The Chaos Coins you earn will also come to your aid—spent at the Chaos Broker, you can exchange Chaos Coins for new items or Shards of Fortune. These shards will increase your Fortune Rating, providing a greater chance of receiving higher-quality Legendary items from chests on each floor. If you’re resourceful enough to make it to the fifteenth floor without dying more than five times, you’ll receive a reward. Out of all the Legendary items you’ve encountered during your run, select six, and out of those six, you will be rewarded one at random for you to carry out of the Fractured Plane. This time around, you’ll also receive Tseym as a reward for your runs—turn your Tseym in at the Tong-Shi’s Renewal event menu to receive additional rewards and contribute to your Server’s progress!
      Begin your journey towards mental ease soon—the Fractured Plane is available from January 16, 3:00 a.m.–February 6, 2:59 a.m. server time.

      Hungering Moon

      Feeling underfed, the moon has doubled its demands, providing you with an upcoming opportunity to sate its seemingly endless appetite for blood!
      The moonlit path you’ll take to heed your lunar overlord’s increased howl for sustenance is ready to be traversed. Players can complete up to three tasks a day starting February 2, 3:00 a.m.–February 6, 2:59 a.m. server time. Through completing tasks, you’ll gain Astrolabe Power—the power can be used to draw a Blessing of Magic or Blessing of Might, each with unique benefits, from the Astrolabe. Use the blessings to gain Moonslivers, which can be exchanged for lunar-laced rewards.

      Well met.
      Since Terror’s Tide, our second Major Update for Diablo Immortal, many gallant adventurers have unshackled Stormpoint from evil, stayed safe and warm during the Brumaltine holiday event, and began their ascent to Hell Difficulties VI, VII, and VIII.
      We are beginning 2023 with a smaller Content Update, comprised of a new limited-time event and a variety of updates to existing game features. The year is just beginning though, and we have many Content Updates and additional Major Updates in store for you. We thank you for beginning your year by slaying Hell’s horrors in Diablo Immortal.
      As with previous Content Updates, there will be server maintenance starting on January 4, from 4 p.m.–6 p.m. PDT for Oceania, China, East Asia, Southeast Asia, and Europe Servers, and on January 5, from 12 a.m.–2 a.m. PDT for servers in the Americas. After the maintenance has concluded, all items mentioned below will be live—specific dates for any content going live afterward are provided below.

      Feature Updates
      Legendary Gems
      Players have brought it to our attention that some Legendary Gems behaved inconsistently with creatures summoned by the player. We have made changes to two Legendary Gems to create parity between their effects and that of similar Legendary Gems.
      Chip of Stoned Flesh: Your summoned creatures will now deal additional damage to enemies affected by Explosive Curse. Seeping Bile: The damage-over-time effects now apply to Critical Hits originating from your summoned creatures. Reforge Stones
      Until now, Reforge Stones have only been purchasable by using Eternal Orbs. We want to allow more players to get their hands on this item and have made the following change to further this:
      Reforge Stones may now be purchased using Platinum. Each Reforge Stone will cost 1,000 Platinum. To purchase Reforge Stones using Platinum, visit Yverius, the Smithing Materials vendor in Westmarch, or the in-game shop. Iben Fahd’s Sanctum
      Aspirant’s Keys and Gems will now be automatically looted from Iben Fahd’s Sanctum. Social Notification Improvements
      When you create a Helliquary Raid, members of your Warband and Clan will be notified via their respective chat channels, allowing them to join your Raid. A Party Leader’s Bounties will now be automatically shared with other Party members unless those players already have four active Bounties. Players with active Bounties will be given the option to replace their current Bounties with the Party Leader’s Bounties. Back to Top
      Rising Damnation Limited-Time Event

      Nobody is safe from demonic temptation in Sanctuary, not even you, adventurer. They’re omnipresent, inescapable, and waiting to devour your body and soul whole. Damnation is coming!
      From January 5 at 3 a.m.–January 13 at 3 a.m. server time, as you complete daily Rising Damnation tasks, you’ll receive various rewards for your heroics. Racking up enough completed tasks will also unlock milestone rewards for you—a testament to your valor.
