The Diablo 4 Patch 1.1.1 update will address some of the concerns that players had following the recent Season 1 Patch.

In that patch, many of the classes were nerfed, and players felt that their overall enjoyment of the gameplay had been affected by it. Blizzard was quick to address the situation and promised that Patch 1.1.1 would bring some much-needed change to Sanctuary.

Thanks to the latest Campfire stream, we now know just what to expect from Diablo 4 Patch 1.1.1 and when they plan to release it.

When Will Diablo 4 Patch 1.1.1 Release?

Diablo 4 Patch 1.1.1 will release on August 8th, 2023. The full list of Patch Notes for the update is coming on August 2.

This will give players over a week with the patch notes to prepare for the upcoming update and sort out their build.

Blizzard stated that this is how they will approach all future patch updates to avoid catching players off guard with any balancing changes.

Diablo 4 Patch 1.1.1 Upcoming Changes Summary

Here is a quick summary of the most important changes coming to Diablo 4 with Patch 1.1.1 Update:

  • Patch Notes for Patch 1.1.1 will release on August 2nd.
  • Vulernable and Crit Damage are the best forms of damage by a large margin. Blizzard hopes to balance this out and increase the potential of other forms of damage as well.
  • Minions and Companions will receive some well-needed buffs with the upcoming update:
    • Both the Necromancer’s minions and Druid’s companions will receive decreased damage from Mobs.
  • Monster Density will increase across all of Sanctuary except in Helltide Events. This means more enemies for players to farm.
  • World Tier 3 and 4 Bosses will receive an increase in difficulty but also guarantee Legendary item drops.
  • Players will get a 40% reduction cost when they respec their character.
  • The Leave Dungeon animation has returned to 3 seconds.

The Necromancer was already a solid choice in Diablo 4, so it’s the class with the least changes coming to its skills.

Treasure Goblins Will Drop More Legendary Items

In Patch 1.1.1, Treasure Goblins will have a Legendary Gear drop rate of 100% for Level 15 or higher players.

The current drop rate is 50%, but many players felt it was even lower due to how terrible the loot from Treasure Goblins usually is. This change will make hunting Treasure Goblins much more worthwhile.
