Patch 1.0.3 Findings

Patch 1.0.3 dropped this week and brought many changes to class balance, experience gains and Nightmare Dungeon quality of life. Over the last few days everyone has been able to test out some of these adjustments so we have a better idea how they are effecting peoples playtime. Let's go over a few notes on each change.

Balance Changes

The balance changes weren't drastic by any means for any of the 5 classes. While every class got buffs across the board there's haven't been too many notable builds coming out of the cracks yet. People are starting to Leap around and Kick stuff on their Barbarians with some success now, so we can only imagine another Barbarian nerf is on the horizon. Everyone is suffering a little less while using basic attacks and overall every class feels a little stronger than they did prior to the patch.

Experience Farming

Experience gains have improved in a massive way since this patch, especially while farming Nightmare Dungeons. Helltide Chests are not to be ignored either, as opening up as many as you can during a Helltide yields huge experience gains! For many players the leveling process form 50-100 has been one of the most un-enjoyable things about Diablo 4. These adjustments have made that part of the game progress much faster which should help players feel like their getting stronger faster in the endgame.

Nightmare Dungeon Tier Lists

Nm Dungeon Tier Lists ^

Nightmare Dungeons are the most efficient place to level up your character and the recent adjustments to them merit some changes to our Tier Lists. We've been testing each Nightmare Dungeon the last few days and are adjusting the Tier List during our meeting tomorrow. Many of the best Nightmare Dungeons got better while others are proving to be better than expected. We're also working on a Events Tier List so you know which ones to conquer or skip as you're slaying your way through.

Super Rare Uniques - All Have Been Found!

Super Rare Uniques have proven to be impossibly rare but we finally have reports of all 6 of them being found! The Melted Heart of Selig was the final one to drop in the last 24 hours. There's a high chance that many of these items have been found without being reported but it's exciting to finally know these truly rare items have dropped!
