Blizzard confirms Diablo 4 has six ultra-rare items, sparking ‘lottery level rarity’ controversy

Blizzard has stepped in to clear up the confusion surrounding the rarest items in Diablo 4, confirming that there are currently six items in the game. However, players believe that it is impossible to obtain one.

After nearly a month in it Players have been wondering about the status of rare unique items in Diablo 4 Since only a few have been found, Diablo 4 lead designer Adam Jackson took to Twitter to confirm that there are currently six extremely rare unique pieces in the game:

  • Dombringer (Unique Sword Cut)
  • Grandfather (a unique sword that cuts with his own hand)
  • Ring of Starless Skies (Unique Ring)
  • Andariel’s visage (unique rudder)
  • Harlequin Crest (unique rudder)
  • Selig’s heart melted (unique amulet)

According to Jackson, these extremely rare unique items only drop from level 85 plus enemies, always drop at 820 power, and can be obtained anywhere you can get them on a regular basis. Jackson also confirmed that the extremely rare unique pieces are “really rare,” which is the last point that puts the cat among the pigeons within the Diablo community.

Blizzard has yet to confirm the exact drop rate for these extremely rare unique shards, so Diablo 4 players are currently trying to work them out on their own, which isn’t surprising given how much they’ve wanted to. like redditor Sloppy_Donkey points it outNot only do you have to grind all the way down to take down at least level 85 enemies (Blizzard themselves said the vast majority of Diablo 4 players haven’t finished the campaign yet), but based on a few confirmed enemies they rarely drop. The game is nearly a month into its life, and it looks like we’re talking hundreds, maybe even thousands of hours of playtime before anyone drops by.

Players have called this unique mod “lottery level rarity,” and the items themselves are “functionally non-existent” because of that. And while previous Diablo games included extremely rare items with negligible drop rates, they had trading systems that allowed players to obtain these items from others. Diablo 4 has no such trading system, leaving players at the mercy of the game’s brutal drop rates.

“I’m not even sure what the point of putting in the effort to design these is even,” she says. Redditor Aetius asked. “We’re talking several times rarer than Mageblood [Path of Exile] or a mirror [Path of Exile] In a game without trading. Some of the items aren’t particularly good, and that adds a bit of confusion, too.” The editor agreed, “Drop rates like this don’t belong in a game without trading.” Yasuchika.

Some players say things are made worse by the fact that these extremely rare unique pieces can “roll,” meaning that even if you’re lucky enough to get one, they may not carry the best stats. Redditor Ok_Excuse1908 suggested Blizzard adds specific stats and bonuses to these ultra-rare unique pieces to avoid disappointment: “What’s wrong with giving people who put in over 200 hours before Season 1 to see at least one of those?”

“I’m not saying let them fall out of the trash in WT3 [World Tier 3]. But what about the T40+ WT4 nightmare? These should be more popular and rewarding for completing the hardest content in the game and being the most invested player base.”

As the debate raged, Follow Jackson on Twitter To give players tips for hunting rare unique items. Jackson said that when you get a one-of-a-kind, there’s a chance that it’s a one-of-a-kind instead of one of the rare unique pieces. For this reason, the best way to collect it is to play the content that gives you “the most special thing in each time period”. This will be a familiar tactic for the end of Diablo 4 for Diablo 4 players who will no doubt really be farming unique pieces in the most efficient way possible.

However, some Diablo 4 players are happy to have these rare unique pieces in the game the way they do, pointing to their rarity as fueling the community’s excitement at finding them, and pointing to the fact that Diablo 4 was designed as a “forever game”, i.e. A game that has been played for years, maybe even a decade, rather than months.

Whatever the case, it will be interesting to see if Blizzard increases the drop rate of these items as part of the next important patch for Diablo 4, which is coming soon.

Diablo 4 launched massively, becoming Blizzard’s fastest selling game of all time. It’s also a hit with critics, and in general, it did well with fans. However, the microtransaction cost of Diablo 4 raised eyebrows, and surprisingly Whoopi Goldberg invited Blizzard to release Diablo 4 on Mac.
