Diablo IV Season 4: Spotlight: Loot

Diablo IV Season 4: Spotlight: Loot

Diablo IV’s Season 4, titled ‘Loot Reborn,’ spotlights gear, offering players a chance to explore the Eternal Realm with renewed excitement. Loot Reborn promises a refreshed gameplay experience teeming with new adventures and boundless opportunities for character growth and customisation.  Joe Piepiora, Associate Game Director, and Adam Jackson, Lead Class Designer, share insights into what players can look forward to experiencing.

Crafting a New Destiny

At the core of Loot Reborn lies a profound shift in how players interact with items. The once-twisting itemisation system has been reworked, shedding its intricate layers to reveal a streamlined, intuitive approach.

Base affixes have changed, emerging simpler yet more impactful, empowering players to swiftly discern the essence of each item they encounter. Piepiora reveals, “It’s no longer about hunting for the perfect drop. We want to give players more control over how they build their characters. From new players to our valued fans, everyone will see the sheer benefits of these game-changing improvements.”

Tempering the Forge of Power

Introducing the art of Tempering, a revolutionary system granting players the ability to infuse their discoveries with bespoke enhancements. This lets you add special enhancements to your gear, making it more tailored to your playstyle. Simply visit the blacksmith, choose a recipe, and watch as gear becomes even more formidable. Through this alchemical fusion, gear evolves, resonating with the player’s vision of ultimate power and strategy.

Jackson says, “Giving players the more flexibility to upgrade their gear their way is an aspect I’m really excited for. I can’t wait to see how our fans are going to delve into this feature and what recipes they’ll unlock to take down the hordes of hell.”

Codex of Legends Unleashed

In response to the community’s feedback, the Codex of Power undergoes a paradigm shift, welcoming every legendary item into its hallowed pages. The Codex of Power now stores all your legendary items’ abilities, making it effortless to apply their powers to your gear.

Providing insight behind the update, Piepiora informs, “With this overhaul, our core thought was, how can we get players doing more of what they love? While inventory management is a key area in ARPG games, we want to make it as engaging as possible and not potentially like a chore. Players are going to have more time to focus on gameplay instead of worrying about how much space they have in their inventory.”

The Pursuit of Greater Affixes

Delve deep into the mysteries of Ancestral drops, where the enigmatic Greater Affixes await discovery. Rare and potent, these affixes offer significant boosts to the gear’s power and give players more options for customising the character’s abilities.

“Nothing hits the spot more than getting a killer gear roll, and we’ve made these even more so a reality with our Greater Affixes. Regardless of a being a unique weapon or not, players are going to see a tasty bump in their gears’ stats if they strike lucky”, says Jackson.

Mastering the Art of Power

For players who want to become experts, the Masterworking path is available. Improve selected affixes to create legendary items of great power. Piepiora comments, “Here’s where things get really wild. As with the higher-level dungeons, high risk means higher rewards. Players will earn special metals from The Pit needed for Masterworking items. A Masterwork level increases an item’s Affix by 5%, and every fourth Masterworking rank increases one Affix by 25%. Players are going to be able to create some fear-inducing gear.”

The Pit awaits those who dare to test their mettle, offering rare crafting materials as rewards for those who triumph over its challenges.

Helltides: A Symphony of Chaos

The Helltides experience in Diablo IV Season 4 is packed with new challenges and rewards. Encounter cultists performing dark rituals, surviving terrifying trials, and face off against formidable foes like the Blood Maiden for legendary loot.

Jackson mentions, “We had some really amazing feedback on how we can make Helltides even better! We’re empowering lower-level players on World Tiers 1 and 2 with access to the experience so they can hack and slash their way to some killer rewards.”

Diablo IV Season 4 isn’t just an update; it’s a new chapter in the Diablo IV saga. With Loot Reborn, every encounter, every piece of gear, and every challenge feels fresh and rewarding. Available on Battle.net, Xbox, PlayStation, and Steam from 14th May. And let’s not forget – Diablo IV is now available on Game Pass!
