In preparation for the upcoming Season of Blood, Diablo 4 has received a small but impactful hotfix. The hotfix increases the amount of experience points gained from killing monsters, particularly in World Tier 3 and World Tier 4, the game’s highest levels. This change is a welcomed improvement for players who have expressed frustration with the slow leveling experience.
XP earn rate has been a longstanding issue in Diablo 4, especially at higher levels. The developer initially reduced XP gains in a previous patch, but has been gradually reversing some of the negative changes. With this hotfix, Blizzard is showing that they are aware of the desire for a faster leveling experience.
While the percentage boosts for XP gain in World Tier 3 (5%) and World Tier 4 (15%) may seem small, they are significant steps in the right direction. The climb to higher levels can be grueling, and a faster leveling experience will make it more enjoyable for players.
Additionally, the hotfix addresses an exploit that allowed players to obtain more Seeds of Hatred than intended in certain cases. By removing this exploit, Blizzard is ensuring a fair and balanced gameplay experience.
Although Diablo 4 is currently in a lull with the end of its first season and a pause on major patches, the anticipation for the start of the Season of Blood is building. The upcoming livestreams for the new content are expected to reveal exciting features and improvements that will enhance the overall gameplay experience.
