In a recent hotfix for Diablo 4, Blizzard has implemented some changes to the cost of Bloodforged Sigils, which are needed for the Abattoir of Zir Season 2 event.

Bloodforged Sigils will now cost significantly less Sigil Powder to craft. It reduces the barrier of entry to the Abattoir of Zir.

It’s a much-needed change as it allows more players to run through this pinnacle endgame activity much more frequently.

Blizzard has significantly reduced the amount of Sigil Powder needed to craft Bloodforged Sigils in a hotfix for Diablo 4.

This means that players can attempt more runs of the Abattoir of Zir event in Season 2.

Diablo 4’s Community Manager, Adam Fletcher, confirmed these changes in a post on Blizzard’s forums:

Blizzard also reduced the amount of Sigil Powder you can earn for each successful run of the Abattoir of Zir. However, with the reduced Sigil Powder crafting cost, this reduction in earned Sigil Powder is worth the trade-off.

Why is it Still Showing the Old Sigil Powder Values?

Many players are noticing that the Sigil Powder cost for Bloodforged Sigils in-game still reflects the old values. This is because the hotfix was a backend update, meaning that the UI won’t reflect these changes until a later client patch.

This Reddit user fell prey to this UI confusion:

Thankfully, this is only an issue with the game’s UI. Community Manager, Adam Fletcher, confirmed this on his X account:

This is great news for those wanting to attempt more Abattoir of Zir runs! The endgame activity is already hard enough as is, and the lower cost of entry is a welcome addition for Diablo 4 fans.
