Only 142 accounts found Uber Uniques after patch – Now Fixed

Some lucky players managed to grab these but not as many as some may have thought.

rare uniques Uber Uniques

A new hotfix has just gone live and this one restores the Uber Uniques which will now drop once again.

We did wonder if Blizzard would allow those you managed to snag one to keep their drops and the good news is they can. It’s worth noting that according to Blizzard only 142 accounts managed to grab one of these while the drops were screwed up. Not a massive amount considering the player numbers. Congrats to all those that did manage to find one.

Take note though, Blizzard is watching and if anyone is deemed to have used an exploit or bug to obtain items such as this in the future they may take action.

In the notes, they also point out that Uniques will not be restricted to specific item slot limitations of the chest. They can be found from all chests.

Uber Uniques Hotfix Notes

  • Fixed an issue where Uber Unique items had an unintended higher chance to drop from Helltide Chests.

Developer Note: With the above change, we have re-enabled Uber Unique drops in Diablo IV. In total we have discovered that only 142 accounts obtained an Uber Unique between the launch of 1.0.4 and when we disabled Uber Unique items from the game on the evening of July 6th. We do not plan on removing these items from the accounts. In the future, we may need to take action to maintain fairness within the game when a bug or exploit impacts the gameplay of others.

Gameplay Changes

  • Helltide Chests will now have the chance to drop any Unique and not be restricted to specific item slot limitations from any chest.

Developer Note: With the above change players will now be able to find Unique items from ALL Helltide Chests. Uber Unique items also have a chance to be found from all chests.
