Diablo 4 has disabled the unique power of one of the Barbarian’s Unique items, as according to the developers the effect was too powerful. Diablo 4‘s early access period is underway, bringing the long-awaited new chapter of the Eternal Conflict, Lilith’s return, and more horrors to face.
For fighting in Blizzard’s new game, Diablo 4 offers five classes with unique abilities and playstyles for gamers to choose from. Necromancers conjure the dead for battle, while Sorcerers mold the elements into whatever form is needed. Rogue players use this warrior’s agility and proficiency in ranged and close-range combat. The Druid is one of the most popular classes in the game and consists of a powerful shapeshifter capable of fighting using the powers of nature. For players who prefer brute force, the Barbarian has great strength and a wide arsenal of weapons.
Blizzard has disabled the unique power of the Barbarian’s Gohr’s Devastating Grips item, as according to the devs the effect’s performance was far beyond the expectations. Unique Items are the highest rarity available and drop only in the hardest World Tiers of Diablo 4. Gohr’s Devastating Grips is a pair of Barbarian gloves with the unique power “Whirlwind,” which explodes after finishing and deals fire damage to enemies in the area. Due to its channeling nature, players could start and stop the effect, triggering the explosion multiple times. A balancing fix will be released in an upcoming patch before Whirlwind is re-activated.
Diablo 4‘s early access release is getting much praise but is not going without some unforeseen issues. The game suffered from huge connection problems and license errors, preventing players from accessing the game. A Diablo 4 side quest was disabled until further notice, as it was making it impossible for players to fully complete the Scosglen zone. For Barbarian mains, the news is a major upset, as Whirlwind is considered one of the most powerful unique powers the class has.
Diablo 4 is already among the highest-rated games of the year even before the full release, which is a reason for Blizzard and fans of the series to celebrate. In addition to entertaining long-time gamers, it has not been uncommon to find players who are having their first experience with Diablo, or playing their first action RPG, thanks to Diablo 4. With a journey that begins with good impressions, the future for Diablo 4 is already starting to look promising.
Diablo 4 is available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
