Diablo 4

Diablo has reverted the increased drop chance for Uber Duriel

Diablo 4’s temporary increase in the drop rate of Echo of Duriel’s Uber Unique has concluded, and has reverted to the regular drop rates.

In Diablo 4 Season 2, players have the opportunity to obtain a unique mount and diverse items by defeating Echo of Duriel. To engage in the battle against this boss, players need to collect the necessary summoning materials. Echo of Duriel can be encountered in the Level 100 dungeon called Gaping Crevasse, located in southern Kehjistan near its capital, Gea Kul.

Blizzard applied a hotfix that boosted the drop rates for Uber Uniques from Echo of Duriel, effective until January 8th. As of the latest hotfix (HOTFIX 7 – January 8, 2024 – 1.2.3a), the double drop rate has been rescinded.
