Exciting news for Diablo 4 fans: Blizzard has deployed a new hotfix, 1.1.0b build #43391, on July 20, 2023, for all platforms. This hotfix not only fixes a few existing issues but also marks the start of the much-anticipated Season 1: Season of the Malignant. Let’s take a closer look at what’s new and improved.
The highlight of this update is undoubtedly the commencement of the first-ever season in Diablo 4, dubbed the Season of the Malignant. With a new season comes new challenges, rewards, and countless hours of demon hunting.
The hotfix introduces a significant change to Malignant Hearts. They will now always grant armor that directly corresponds with their item power. This means that the higher the item power of the Malignant Heart, the more potent the armor bonus it provides. It’s a welcome improvement that will enable players a more predictable and rewarding looting experience.
In another major shift, Blizzard has removed the level requirement for World Tiers III and IV. This change could significantly alter how players progress through the game, allowing for more freedom and strategic planning. Removing level requirements should enable players to experience higher difficulty tiers at their own pace, adding a new layer of challenge for those who are up for it.
