Diablo 4

Diablo 4 is set to introduce a new crafting system next week: Uber Unique Crafting

Diablo 4 is getting an update on February 13, and one major change is players can craft Uber Unique items. These items are rare, but Blizzard is making it easier for players to get them.

As part of the update, a new feature is introduced to the game in the form of Uber Unique Crafting. The update allows players to create their own Uber Unique items. This new system allows players to dismantle the Uber Unique items they don’t need to obtain a new crafting resource (Resplendent Sparks), which can then be used to create the Uber Unique item they actually want. The Refine Resources tab has been rebranded as Transmute.

The new Diablo patch will also bring a change to “The Cursed Shrine event”. It will now grants the Shrine bonus at the beginning of the event instead of waiting until it is completed.

DIABLO IV PATCH NOTES - (source)

Uber Unique Crafting

Developer’s Note:Uber Unique items are highly sought after. With Season of Blood, we introduced target-farming Uber Unique Items with Uber Duriel to gives players another source of acquiring this type of item. However, we want to give players increased autonomy in obtaining their desired Uber Unique by addressing feedback that expressed how acquiring duplicate or undesired Uber Unique Items lessens that feeling of triumph. A new system empowers players to make use of duplicate and undesired Uber Unique items by salvaging them for a new resource which can be used to eventually craft an Uber Unique of their choosing. Additionally, the chance for Uber Unique Items to drop everywhere but in Uber Duriel encounters has been increased.

  • Uber Unique Items can now be salvaged to provide a new resource, Resplendent Sparks. Players can bring 5 Resplendent Sparks to the Alchemist and Transmute an Uber Unique of their choice.
    • The Refine Resources tab at the Alchemist has been renamed Transmute, and the option to craft an Uber Unique item can be found under that tab.
    • Note that the preview window for crafting an Uber Unique won’t display the item’s affixes.
  • The drop chance of Uber Unique items acquired outside of Uber Duriel encounters has been increased.

Miscellaneous

  • The Cursed Shrine event now gives the Shrine bonus at the start of the event instead of when it is finished.
