Diablo 2: Resurrected artwork for Mephisto

[Update]: After years of silence, Diablo Immortal is heading into open beta for PC and mobile in July 2022.

After being delayed for a couple of weeks in order to ensure a newfound bug doesn't mess anything up, Diablo 2: Resurrected's hefty Patch 2.4 has now finally arrived. The update brings with it a variety of buffs to some previously underutilized or straight up terrible abilities, as well as paves the way for the long-awaited competitive Ladder.

Once Season 1 properly starts this April 28th you'll have a chance to compete in four different modes: Classic which encompasses the first four acts, Hardcore Classic where you only have one life to play around with, Expansion Ladder that spans all of Diablo 2: Resurrected's content, as well as Hardcore Expansion Ladder. Each mode will require you to start with a completely fresh character, so even if you've just started playing Diablo 2: Resurrected, it'll be an entirely even playing field.

As for the balance changes, a variety of previously meme-tier builds like Throwing Barbarian have been buffed up, while the practically ancient requests for the Druid to have spirit wolves, dire wolves and bears all summoned at the same time have now been fulfilled! While some of these buffed up builds might still not be top-tier, the changes should definitely make the upcoming Season 1 a lot more diverse and exciting to play!

You can check out the full list of tweaks, as well as learn more about the upcoming competitive Ladder, over at the patch notes. Have fun with your newfound Druid zoo!
