Diablo 4 Patch 1.3.2

Diablo 4 Uber Unique Crafting – Version 1.3.2 Patch Notes

Diablo 4 Version 1.3.2 will be arriving on February 13, 2024 around 8 AM Pacific Time, and will have a major itemization update!

Currently, the most powerful items in the game - the "Uber Unique" items - are extremely rare drops. They can drop from the world, or more commonly farmed from the Duriel, King of Maggots boss, at around a 2% drop rate. However, you cannot always get the piece that you want and may end up never getting it despite your best efforts.

To remedy this a little bit, players will be able to salvage these items to obtain the new Resplendent Sparks crafting item, and Transmute 5 of them at the Alchemist to create an Uber Unique item of their choice! Notably, drop rates for Uber Unique items outside of the boss is increased in this patch, but currently it is already at impossibly low rates - so to what extent, is unknown as of now.

Make sure to hold on to those items (if you are lucky enough to have any) until the patch if you are sitting on a few of them in your stash! Check out the full list of changes below, as well as some additional bug fixes.


Game Updates

Uber Unique Crafting

Developer’s Note: Uber Unique items are highly sought after. With Season of Blood, we introduced target-farming Uber Unique Items with Uber Duriel to gives players another source of acquiring this type of item. However, we want to give players increased autonomy in obtaining their desired Uber Unique by addressing feedback that expressed how acquiring duplicate or undesired Uber Unique Items lessens that feeling of triumph. A new system empowers players to make use of duplicate and undesired Uber Unique items by salvaging them for a new resource which can be used to eventually craft an Uber Unique of their choosing. Additionally, the chance for Uber Unique Items to drop everywhere but in Uber Duriel encounters has been increased.

  • Uber Unique Items can now be salvaged to provide a new resource, Resplendent Sparks. Players can bring 5 Resplendent Sparks to the Alchemist and Transmute an Uber Unique of their choice.
    • The Refine Resources tab at the Alchemist has been renamed Transmute, and the option to craft an Uber Unique item can be found under that tab.
    • Note that the preview window for crafting an Uber Unique won't display the item’s affixes.
  • The drop chance of Uber Unique items acquired outside of Uber Duriel encounters has been increased.

Miscellaneous

  • The Cursed Shrine event now gives the Shrine bonus at the start of the event instead of when it is finished.
