Diablo 4 has recently received a new update, showing a great follow-up from the developers. So, what’s new? Well, a lot of things. Diablo 4 recently launched its season 3. This comes after the Season of Blood, which, despite a difficult start, was quite successful. Now, on to the next, but most importantly, the changes. Yes, Blizzard clearly aims to show that they are listening to the community, the die-hard fans, the newcomers, and everyone else. They have rolled out a new update, which can only be described as massive. There are new features, and more than just a few. What do we have on the agenda? Diablo 4 is offering a substantial new update. The new game is looking to make a big impact with its Season of Assemblies. This includes the addition of the Seneschal Companion, an insect-shaped robotic ally. This companion supports the player, and can be directly involved in combat, providing support, and more. There are also the Vaults, a new type of dungeon offering unique challenges with traps and tough enemies. In short, there are many new additions that will please fans. But what about the new patch that has just been released? First of all, it should be noted that it fixes a host of bugs. Most of them had an impact on season 3, and the studio did not waste any time in getting rid of them as quickly as possible. The changes made cover gameplay, dungeons, and the user interface. The list is long, very long, and it shows that things have not been done half-heartedly. Other than that, there has been a balance of the Seneschal’s skills. The Vampirism affix will also receive improvements in a future update. Patch notes for Diablo 4 version 1.3.1 The amount of health restored by a monster with the Vampirism affix has been reduced. World level I: 10% → 5% World level II: 20% → 10% World level III: 35% → 15% World level IV: 50% → 25% The Suppression affix has been adjusted in Diablo 4. The suppression field is no longer activated permanently. Its duration is now 6 seconds and its uptime varies between 50 and 75%. The field can be canceled if the monster with the affix is stunned, frozen, knocked down, or dazed. We have adjusted the layout and appearance of monsters for several dungeons. Other minor adjustments have also been made. Nightmare dungeon emblems will now display the monster levels corresponding to their own level.
