Diablo Immortal: Season 2 Patch Notes

Any other game subjected to the same controversy as Diablo Immortal wouldn’t survive to see a second season. But it’s the Diablo franchise we’re talking about here – despite every negative review about Blizzard’s newest dungeon-crawler, the game still managed to bring in millions of dollars in its first month.

Diablo Immortal’s pay-to-win mechanics is definitely the most controversial part of Diablo Immortal, and a ton of fans have been begging for Blizzard to do something about it for Season 2.

Unfortunately, Blizzard hasn’t included any updates around the game’s pay-to-win mechanics, but they have made a ton of balance updates and bug fixes for Season 2, which we have outlined in this article.

More Dungeon Crawling Fun

Diablo Immortal’s Season 2 updates include just a few balance changes centered around buffs for the Wizard and Monk class to make them more competitive in-game. The rest of the new patch aims to iron out minor gameplay and UI kinks, which are expected for a relatively new game such as Diablo Immortal.

Diablo Immortal fans will have to wait for a few more patches to see how Blizzard addresses the game’s pay-to-win mechanics. Until then, players can keep their minds busy by completing the Season 2 Battle Pass instead.
