Diablo IV Update 1.3.3 Out Now, Adding Gauntlet Endgame Dungeon, Vampiric Powers and More

Blizzard has released a new Diablo IV update, version 1.3.3, on all platforms. This patch introduces major new content and features, such as the long-anticipated Gauntlet endgame dungeon that was detailed in the latest Campfire Chat live stream.

Moreover, select Vampiric Powers from the Season of Blood are now available as drops from all kinds of enemies in both the Eternal and Seasonal Realms. They can then be equipped as Legendary Aspects.

  • Of Accursed Touch
    • Lucky Hit: Up to a 20-35% chance to inflict Vampiric Curse on enemies. Enemies afflicted by Vampiric Curse are also Vulnerable.
    • Vampiric Curse’s stored souls deal 20%-50% increased damage.
  • Of Metamorphosis
    • When you Evade you turn into a cloud of bats, becoming Unstoppable for 2.5 seconds. Enemies along your path take Physical Damage and are inflicted with Vampiric Curse.
    • Evade’s cooldown is increased by 5-10 seconds.
  • Blood Boiling
    • When your Core skills Overpower an enemy, you spawn 3 Volatile Blood Drops. Collecting a Volatile Blood Drop causes it to explode, dealing Physical Damage around you.
    • Every 20 seconds, your next Skill is guaranteed to Overpower.
  • Hectic
    • For every 5 Basic Skills you cast, one of your active Cooldowns is reduced by 2-4 seconds.
  • Undying
    • Casting Skills heals you for .5-2% life. This heals for an additional 1% life while you are below 50% Life.
  • Of the Moonrise
    • Damaging an enemy with a Basic skill grants you 4% Attack Speed for 10 seconds, stacking up to 5 times. Upon reaching maximum stacks, you enter a Vampiric Bloodrage, gaining 40-80% Basic Skill damage and 15% Movement Speed for 10 seconds.

The patch notes for Diablo IV update 1.3.3 also reveal a class balance pass that largely appears to have buffed most skills and passives. Additionally, the cost to craft Uber Unique items introduced a while ago has been reduced from 5 Resplendent Sparks to 4.

These are exciting times for Diablo IV players.
