The promised Diablo 4 Patch 1.3.0 Notes are here. New Legendary and Unique items, QoL improvements (such as Respec Mode for Skills), along with class balance tweaks and more are here. See below for all the information.

Class Updates

Developer’s Note: It’s important to us that when a player chooses to fully invest in a Skill, the payoff is immense. In pursuit of this goal, several of our new Unique and Legendary items are targeting Skills that have yet to reach their full potential. We’re excited to see what players accomplish with our new Unique items for Barbarian’s Rend, Druid’s Lightning Storm, and Sorcerer’s Meteor. We’re also targeting some pressing issues for each Class. Necromancers with Cult Leader should see their Minions strike a bit harder, Barbarians shouldn’t feel that 3 Shouts are a requirement for their success, and Sorceresses applying Vulnerable with Lightning Spear should open new build opportunities. There are also Class updates to items and Skills that are underperforming, such as the Rogue’s Ranged Unique Items, and the Necromancer’s Golem.

All Classes

New Items

Paingorger's Gauntlets – Unique Gloves

  • Damaging enemies with a cast Non–Basic Skill marks them for 3 seconds. When a Basic Skill first hits a marked enemy, the Basic Skill's damage is echoed to all marked enemies, dealing 100–200%[x] increased damage.

Aspect of Adaptability – Utility

  • When cast below 50% Maximum Resource, Basic Skills generate 3 of your Primary Resource, once per cast.
  • When cast at or above 50% Maximum Resource, Basic Skills deal 40–80% increased damage.

End-Game Activities

  • Helltide will now be active every hour on the hour, with a 5-minute gap in between. Helltide will be active 55 minutes of every hour.
  • So players can more consistently acquire Distilled Fear, we've reworked how Distilled Fear is collected from Nightmare Dungeons.
    • Players will always gain a Distilled Fear after completing a Nightmare Dungeon of at least Tier 30.
    • Every 10 Tiers after Tier 30 there's an increasing chance for additional Distilled Fears to be rewarded.

  • The increased cap for Item Power on drops from World Bosses has been adjusted.
    • Previous: +100 to min, +100 to max
    • New: +65 to min, +25 to max

Developer’s Note: World Bosses are intended to reward powerful loot for your level. With this change, at a high level, players will see maximum Item Power gear from World Bosses at higher levels.

  • The Item Power ranges for items dropped by end-game bosses, such as Varshan and Zir, have been decreased for Rare and Legendary Items. Unique Item Power has not been changed. Examples (note that the current range for Unique Items was previously the range for all items):

        • New: 845-925

User Interface and User Experience

  • The icons for the Helltide Chest of Mysteries and Living Steel Chest have been updated to make them more visually distinctive from the other chest icons.
  • The button for confirming Gold amount in the trade interface on controller has been changed to Yor Triangle on console. This will allow pressing A or X on console to bring up the virtual keyboard to manually enter Gold amounts when trading.
  • We have introduced a new way for players to approach reworking their Skill Tree.
    • Players can now refund whole paths orSkill clumps whilst seeing a preview of it all.
    • Players can also see how many Skill points will be refunded to them and how much Gold it will cost in advance.

Developer’s Note: he new Respec options allows players to easily refund or re-add their Skills in a flexible way. Our goal with these additionsis to make purchasing and refunding Nodes less time consuming while encouraging players to experiment more.
