Quality-of-Life Changes in Season of Blood
On October 13, a video was posted on Diablo IV’s social media channel highlighting some of the best quality-of-life changes coming with Season of Blood. However, it was quickly pulled down after fans found several errors in the footage.
Reaction Video by Diablo YouTuber and Streamer Raxxanterax
Despite the video's removal, it has been immortalized in a reaction video by Diablo YouTuber and streamer Raxxanterax. "I’m trying to build some hype for your new season, but you’re making it real hard."
Changes in XP Calculation and Damage
One of the main issues that fans found in the video was a section explaining changes in XP and damage calculations in the new season. The video incorrectly showed a switch from “1,000 x 40% = 1,040 XP” to “(1,000 x 1.2 = 1,200) 1.2 = 1,400 XP.” The intent was to show that XP percentage bonuses will be multiplied instead of added, providing additional gains. Although it wasn’t a major mistake, it became an easy target for internet jests.
Season of Blood: Changes in Stats
When Season of Blood goes live, it will bring fundamental changes to stats like damage and resistance. The patch notes are as long as 10,000 words. If everything goes as planned, it could be the boost Diablo IV needs. However, with so many changes being implemented at once, there might be a few bugs discovered after the season begins.
Update on Season of Blood's Official Start
Blizzard announced that the official start of the season has been delayed by a few hours due to some complications with the build. Today also marks Diablo IV’s debut on Steam.
