Quell the Rising Damnation in Diablo Immortal
Since Terror’s Tide, our second Major Update for Diablo Immortal, many gallant adventurers have unshackled Stormpoint from evil, stayed safe and warm during the Brumaltine holiday event, and began their ascent to Hell Difficulties VI, VII, and VIII.
We are beginning 2023 with a smaller Content Update, comprised of a new limited-time event and a variety of updates to existing game features. The year is just beginning though, and we have many Content Updates and additional Major Updates in store for you. We thank you for beginning your year by slaying Hell’s horrors in Diablo Immortal.
As with previous Content Updates, there will be server maintenance starting on January 4, from 4 p.m.–6 p.m. PDT for Oceania, China, East Asia, Southeast Asia, and Europe Servers, and on January 5, from 12 a.m.–2 a.m. PDT for servers in the Americas. After the maintenance has concluded, all items mentioned below will be live—specific dates for any content going live afterward are provided below.
Players have brought it to our attention that some Legendary Gems behaved inconsistently with creatures summoned by the player. We have made changes to two Legendary Gems to create parity between their effects and that of similar Legendary Gems.
- Chip of Stoned Flesh: Your summoned creatures will now deal additional damage to enemies affected by Explosive Curse.
- Seeping Bile: Your summoned creatures now have a chance to apply the Poison effect to enemies they attack.
Until now, Reforge Stones have only been purchasable by using Eternal Orbs. We want to allow more players to get their hands on this item and have made the following change to further this:
- Reforge Stones may now be purchased using Platinum. Each Reforge Stone will cost 1,000 Platinum. To purchase Reforge Stones using Platinum, visit Yverius, the Smithing Materials vendor in Westmarch, or the in-game shop.
Iben Fahd’s Sanctum
- Aspirant’s Keys and Gems will now be automatically looted from Iben Fahd’s Sanctum.
Social Notification Improvements
- When you create a Helliquary Raid, members of your Warband and Clan will be notified via their respective chat channels, allowing them to join your Raid.
- A Party Leader’s Bounties will now be automatically shared with other Party members unless those players already have four active Bounties. Players with active Bounties will be given the option to replace their current Bounties with the Party Leader’s Bounties.
Rising Damnation Limited-Time Event
Nobody is safe from demonic temptation in Sanctuary, not even you, adventurer. They’re omnipresent, inescapable, and waiting to devour your body and soul whole. Damnation is coming!
From January 5 at 3 a.m.–January 13 at 3 a.m. server time, as you complete daily Rising Damnation tasks, you’ll receive various rewards for your heroics. Racking up enough completed tasks will also unlock milestone rewards for you—a testament to your valor.
Feeling underfed, the moon has doubled its demands, providing you with an upcoming opportunity to sate its seemingly endless appetite for blood!
The moonlit path you’ll take to heed your lunar overlord’s increased howl for sustenance is ready to be traversed. Players can complete up to three tasks a day starting January 3, 3:00 a.m.–January 9, 2:59 a.m. server time. Through completing tasks, you’ll gain Astrolabe Power—the power can be used to draw a Blessing of Magic or Blessing of Might, each with unique benefits, from the Astrolabe. Use the blessings to gain Moonslivers, which can be exchanged for lunar-laced rewards.

We’ll see you in Sanctuary!
