Galvanize Your Resolve with Iron Gambit

Galvanize Your Resolve with Iron Gambit

Since our last content update, players have delved into the Age of Unmaking, discovered a new chapter in Deckard Cain’s storied past, and tested themselves with Oblivion Pillars. This upcoming content update introduces the Season 25 Battle Pass, a new Events Center, and two new endless modes in Survivor’s Bane.

The generals of the Burning Hells have unleashed their most clever magic—the ability to alter time itself. Starting on April 10th, the server time will roll back an hour earlier for Australia during maintenance to account for the end of daylight savings time.

As with previous content updates, there will be server maintenance starting on April 9, from 5 p.m.–7 p.m. PST for Oceania, China, East Asia, Southeast Asia, and Europe servers, and on April 10, from 1 a.m.–3 a.m. PST for servers in the Americas. After the maintenance has concluded, all items mentioned below will be live—specific dates for any features going live afterward are provided below.

The gambit plays its hand wisely; this Battle Pass starts on April 11, 3 a.m. server time and ends on May 9, 3 a.m. server time—begin slaying demons and climbing your way through the ranks today!

We’re also introducing two new hellishly augmented versions of Survivor’s Bane which greatly increases the overall challenge. Legions increases enemy spawn rate by 100%, and experience earned by 50%. The second, Stampede, increases enemy density by 50%, and enemy movement speed by 25%.

New achievements will be yours to unlock once you’ve mastered these new modes by crushing demons in Survivor’s Bane. Partaking in these new modes will also earn you increased rewards from rising to meet this challenge with a fervor only Sanctuary’s finest could muster.

Feature Updates

Switch the New Magic Affix while Class Change

Legendary Items earned from Terror Rifts, Oblivion Pillars, and Hellslayer Bounties with Class specific Affixes will update when changing Classes. If you’ve obtained any of these items with a Class specific Affix, your Item will shift to a different Class specific Affix upon changing to a new Class. These Affixes are directly tied across Classes, an Affix on one Class will always update to the same Affix on a different Class.

Battleground Compensation for AFK Players

For players that lose a Battleground match after a teammate is removed for inactivity or a disconnection, we’re compensating the loss of the match with a slight reimbursement of overall points.

Necromancer Legendary Affix Changes

The cooldown for the Corpse Lance Emperor of Worms Legendary Affix effect has been increased from 3 to 6 seconds. When striking an enemy, they’ll only be affected by the Immobilizing effect every 6 seconds instead of 3.

Corpse Lance now also reduces the Movement Speed of any enemies it strikes and immobilizes to prevent any dash skill for any enemy hit by a Lance 4 times for 4.8 seconds.

  • Level 1: Immobility 2.4 seconds
  • Level 2: Immobility 2.8 seconds
  • Level 3: Immobility 3.2 Seconds
  • Level 4: Immobility 3.6 Seconds

Developer’s Note: Considering the cooldown for Corpse Lance at level 4 was 3 seconds and stunned enemy players for 2.4 seconds, players were essentially able to stun lock their opponents with relative ease. This change to cooldown should allow for a fairer fight.

Item Stack Inventory Changes

Certain items now stack to higher amounts per space in your inventory to save space. The following items now stack further:

  • Aspirant’s keys increased from 99 to 9,999 per slot.
  • All types of Crests, increased from 99 to 9,999 per slot.
  • Upgrade materials such as Scrap, increased from 9,999 to 99,999 per slot.
