By Tucker Taussig – Published 17 hours ago
The server slam for Diablo 4 gave players a glimpse into the state of a key mechanic at launch, and to fans’ relief, it seems well-balanced.
The Server Slam for Diablo 4 went live through the weekend of May 12 to 14, giving players one last taste of the hellish ARPG ahead of its June 6 launch as they battled to level 20 and take on Ashava the Pestilent while how Blizzard’s server infrastructure tested. Players have been waiting for a decent ARPG since Diablo 3, and Blizzard seems to have stepped up to the challenge, with glowing reviews of the open betas so far.
In Diablo, Loot Reigns Supreme. One crucial element Diablo 4’s success will hinge on is its balance of loot and how frequently it drops. After Diablo 3’s launch, some fans were unhappy with the Legendary drop rate and how rare items outperformed Legendaries. Blizzard fixed this later in Diablo 3’s lifespan, and we can only hope that Diablo 4 won’t repeat Diablo 3’s mistake.
To ensure that players got an accurate idea of the variety of loot that will be available, Blizzard tuned up the Legendary drop rate in previous betas. The Server Slam brought those levels back to where they will be at launch and put some fans wary that Legendaries might become too hard to get, but it looks like their fears were unfounded. Players were still able to get enough Legendary items, cobble together a decent build and meet the challenge.
Blizzard’s philosophy surrounding Legendary loot since the Loot 2.0 update for Diablo 3 is to have unique items that change the way players play the game. With skill-altering modifiers that encourage variety and ingenuity in builds, Diablo 4 beta showcased Blizzard’s reaffirmation to that philosophy.
The endgame is where Diablo 4 must be at its strongest. Between the World Tiers, Nightmare Dungeons, the all-new Mythic items, and the Fields of Hatred PvP zone engrossed in Diablo 4’s endgame seems promising. June 6 can’t come soon enough, and the general discourse has been optimistic. It is all speculation until the reviews begin to pour in and fans decide if Blizzard stuck the landing
Diablo 4 will be available on June 6 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
