Diablo 4’s Duriel Uber Unique Drop Rates Doubled

Blizzard has implemented a hotfix for Diablo 4 that increases the drop rates for Uber Uniques from Echo of Duriel, and this will be active until January 8th.

In Season 2 of Diablo 4, players can acquire a distinctive mount and various items by defeating Echo of Duriel. To initiate the battle with this boss, gamers must gather the required summoning materials. Located in the Level 100 dungeon known as Gaping Crevasse, Echo of Duriel can be encountered there. The entrance to Gaping Crevasse is situated in southern Kehjistan, adjacent to its capital, Gea Kul.

Now, Blizzard has released a Diablo 4 hotfix which will double Duriel’s Uber Unique drop rates.

HOTFIX 2 – December 8, 2023 – 1.2.3a

Game Updates

  • Paragon Glyph experience rewarded from the Abattoir of Zir has been increased, with significant increases for higher tiers.
    • Examples:
      • Tier 1: Unchanged(1000)

      • Tier 10: 3900 → 11600

  • We’ve restructured the earlier tiers of Abattoir of Zir, and the experience now begins with a difficulty close to that of Tier 90 Nightmare Dungeons. The Monsters continue to rapidly scale, reaching a similar difficulty of Nightmare Dungeon Tier 100 by Tier 5, and matching the current Live difficulty tuning by Tier 10. Additionally, we’ve reduced incoming damage by up to ~20% throughout all Tiers of Abattoir of Zir.
