Class Balance Changes
Class changes for Diablo 2: Resurrected is the obvious focus of update 2.4. A new ranked season is coming and Blizzard is updating the meta to ensure the season feels brand new. There are too many changes to summarize, but it should be clear that the three skill trees for the seven classes have had at least one small change. The Druid has received perhaps the most dramatic changes, improving his casting, melee and summoning. The Necromancer received perhaps the least impactful changes, although small improvements to Weaken, Bone Abilities and Skeletal Mages are notable.
New Rune Words
Rune Words may be on par with the most significant class changes in terms of meta-change. New Rune Words for swords, staffs, claws, as well as bows and crossbows, will offer a wide range of building opportunities for players to experiment with.
There are also two new helm rune words, one that improves mana management and the second, a powerful defensive rune for both martial and magical attacks.
New horadric cubes and more tweaks
Beyond those two areas, in addition to the horadric cube recipes for improving set pieces, Blizzard has even more interesting tweaks. Twelve different set items have been upgraded to varying degrees, Act III now requires players to crush the Compulsive Orb to access Durance of Hate instead of skipping the Khalim’s Will quest, and sixteen option areas have had their monster levels increased to 85 on Inferno difficulty to encourage players to complete them for rewards.
Suffice it to say that Diablo 2: Resurrected patch 2.4, such as it is, will offer a completely new experience compared to previous Diablo 2 updates. Blizzard clearly wants Diablo 2 fans to come back and experience something different. Also, if it proves popular, Blizzard may try even more experimental changes in the future. The PTR update arrives on January 25, with a full release to follow when Blizzard is ready to start climbing ladders.
Diablo 2: Resurrected is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
