Blizzard Addresses Balance and Bug Issues in Diablo 4’s Hotfix 9

Blizzard has just released the 9th hotfix for Diablo 4. This update, version 1.0.2, makes significant strides in rectifying balance concerns while fixing some notable bugs in the game.

The developers are working hard to ensure that each dungeon in the game provides a balanced experience for players. In this hotfix, they adjusted the density of elite monsters in dungeons. According to Blizzard, the goal is to ensure that no particular dungeon appears more efficient to run than others.
