|Patch 2.4.2: First Look â€“ Overview||July-26-2016 3:00 PM PDT (7 years ago)|
Our next patch is coming soon! Read on to learn about the new difficulty levels, new and updated items, Adventure Mode updates, and UI changes youâ€™ll see in Patch 2.4.2.
New Difficulty Levels
With new power comes a desire to test your strength. If youâ€™ve sharpened your weapons on Torment X and are ready for new challenges, youâ€™ll be happy to hear weâ€™ve added Torment XIâ€“XIII difficulties to the game, and filled them with progressively better lootâ€”so get out there and wreck face, nephalem!
New and Updated Items
As with previous patches, Patch 2.4.2 brings updates to many Legendary and Set Items and also adds a few new items and Legendary powers. Here are some of the items weâ€™ve updated, and donâ€™t forget to check out our PTR patch notes for all the details.
User Interface Updates
Finally, we have a few changes to the user interface. Those who enjoy taking screenshots will soon have a hotkey that hides the in-game UI for cleaner shots. Weâ€™re also adding unique pylon minimap icons to Nephalem Rifts and Greater Rifts, and a unique icon for the Menagerist Treasure Goblin.
Adventure Mode Changes
Weâ€™re also sweetening Adventure Mode rewards, starting with Nephalem Rifts. Youâ€™re now guaranteed a Greater Rift Key when completing any Rift, with a chance to get a second (or even a third) key as you increase the gameâ€™s difficulty. Weâ€™ve also adjusted drop rates for Infernal Machines, with a 100% drop chance in Torment IV, and an increasing chance for a second machine to drop as you go up in difficulty.
New challenges and updated items await you once the patch arrives! We canâ€™t wait to see what builds you'll create and the stories youâ€™ll have to share when Season 7 arrives. Are you ready? Let us know what youâ€™re most excited about, feel free to ask any questions you have in the comments, and GL HF!
