Diablo 4: Boss Summons Simplified, Tempered Affixes Clarified

Jul 09, 2024 2:22 PM

The latest Diablo 4 patch is here, bringing several quality-of-life improvements and addressing some player concerns. Among the most notable changes, selling boss summoning materials in Diablo 4 now grants significantly more Gold, making the effort to collect these items more rewarding. Key items like Blackened Femur, Gurgling Head, and Trembling Hand will now fetch 50,000 Gold each, up from 20,000. Additionally, Stygian Stones have increased from 70,000 to 150,000 Gold. The patch also refined the Tempering system, introducing clearer icons for different Tempered affixes and improving drop rates for Tempering Manuals. On the other hand, Elixir drop rates have been reduced slightly due to their high abundance in the previous patch.
