Balance

  • Campaign normal is now more “normal.” What does “normal” even mean? T-shirts and jeans? A polo? Beer by the pool? Warsong Commander giving minions with 3 or less attack charge? Check out our influence vote later today to help decide what “normal” means.


Bug Fixes

  • Restored our loading screens to their formal, non-pixelated glory. I mean, former. It’d be really cool if they were wearing a suit though, right?

  • Fixed one of the many issues with full-screen windowed mode. We wish that read “full-screen mode,” but it doesn’t. That fix is next! Stay tuned.

  • Stopped monthly missions from resetting when you join a Social Tavern.

  • Put together a plan to give everyone affected by the bug above a free Bearkira. Have a look!

  • Chopped October’s monthly mission requirements in half. IN HALF. Actually, more than half. But you get the drift.

"Sorry for the frustration! Because of the resetting issue, if you had the Monthly Mission unlocked before today's patch, you should have the Bearkira pet in your inventory now. Also as a heads up, in our Spooky event at the end of the month, there will be skeleton bosses to help you get the Monthly Mission."

i just looked in my inventory and pet stash....there is no bearkira....and yes i do have access to the monthly quest

Update:  This was a miscommunication on my part, and I apologize. The Bearkira pet will be given to players on October 27th with the release of Ascension Part II. I'm truly sorry about that.

You make it sound like you're overly generous by chopping the monthly mission requirements in half... but seriously... Having wasted tons of time trying to get those hulk's to spawn just to get the monthly progress reset... I spend at least 50 hours the last 14 days just to kill hulks, and i made it to 42 before my progress got reset. The monthly ends on October 27th... thats 11 days left, and you cut the requirements in half?

I don't care about the decorative pet. Im done wasting my time. Have a gg everyone.

I do not see any Bearkira anywhere. Just like danbig.

TE has my trust when it comes to things like this, so i am as calm about this as i could possibly be. Thank you for clarity though, you're awesome. While you take the blame for miscommunication, i should take the blame for misunderstanding because it was said that a pet will be given with the Ascension II patch=) When there's an argument or miscommunications, it's always both parties that are at fault. It's all good;)
I am waiting for some clarity on the question about Collector's Pack that i pm'ed you yesterday.

Hi Trendy, is there a reason why we need item pwr 800 to join a public NM4 game that drops item pwr 605-610? I think majority of players don't have item pwr 800 and therefore can't play public / with the community.

Also, I'm wondering if Serenity Aura still slows enemy, I can't tell. Thanks!

Glad to hear the campaign is getting a difficulty boost. Granted I haven't really touched it since I hit free play, but if I ever do go back through I won't have to feel the tedium of the super easy normal mode.

Has anyone else lost (yet again another patch) bags worth of gear?

As much as I do like my bags being somewhat clean. Loosing 2 bags worth of gear for alternative builds (mainly leg that are 300+ is starting to get super annoying)

Thank you for letting me finally use my influence points!


I think "Normal" should be a tiny bit more challenging, but just a little, maybe one extra ogre somewhere. I understand there is a major focus of not having to grind the same levels over and over like DD1, but at the same time it was a bit too easy for me even soloing it. I also understand more maps are probably coming to campaign as development continues, and probably more bosses. However, as it stands, make it a tiny it more of a challenge. It was, however, plenty rewarding to beat.

What happened to all of the progress we had made towards the mission up til now? I had completed the 75 legendary and 75 incursion requirements and was working towards the skeletons when the progress was reset. the missions new requirements are much more attainable, but the month is half over and i don't have nearly as much free time in the second half.

Since you say that this is "Difficulty Hotfix 1" I can only hope it means you'll be tackling Nightmare 4 and balancing that down a little. The fact it says you need iPwr 1000 when the highest gear I got from that level is 720 is an inherent flaw. I'm shocked you guys removed the ability to farm the first wave but didn't remove the underlying problem that was forcing players to do that.


I look forward to the changes!

Hey Athena. You should still be able to join public games even without the ilvl it says. Unfortunately it's still way too hard, try them solo. Serenity only slows if you have "Idle Flow" on your Relic.

I think that the Vote- System and all the other little community things you added in that game, makes it one of the bes games ever! Keep doing that!

Made a new Hero (squire):

Easily beat first map on normal... just soooo easy (but that's fine, first map after all)

Skipped to forgotten ruins and beat it with only a tiny bit of difficulty

Skipped to Ramparts and beat it with a little difficulty and some walls getting destroyed.


That's waaaaay too easy.  The stat points + gear drops boost you well past where you need to be (at least on squire).

First: Your patch note writing is awesome! :D

Second: Sorry, but making normal campaign even more easy?! I started playing DD2 a few weeks ago and beat the campaign on normal just fine during public games or solo.
