Diablo II: Resurrected has a new beta update now available on the game’s public test realm (PTR). Patch 2.5 not only introduces Terror Zones, but also plenty of quality-of-life changes, improvements, and bug fixes.

People who prefer playing Diablo II: Resurrected on PC will be happy to know about a recent change. More specifically, it’s now possible to quickly equip/unequip items to and from their character and mercenary using a mouse and keyboard.

Another notable improvement is that the chosen game settings now persist even in lobby game creation, rather than being reset to default values. This helps save a lot of time, especially for players who love to adjust a bunch of settings.

In terms of bug fixes, the issue where casting delays could cause a desync at very high ping has been resolved. Moreover, the issue where a PC-created character causes texture and lighting problems when loaded on a console is now fixed.

Here are the other notable changes in Patch 2.5:

  • Added additional warning text to the mercenary confirmation prompt if your previous mercenary still has items equipped.
  • Dead Finger Mages now reset correctly to their original state when revived by Necromancers.
  • Fixed an issue where players and monsters were able to walk through doors that visually looked closed.
  • Fixed an issue where single and dual-wielding basic attacks with Claw weapons could have inconsistent attack speeds.
  • Fixed an issue where performing a weapon swap during a trade would sometimes freeze the game.
  • Fixed an issue where visuals effects granted by set bonuses would sometimes toggle on and off.
  • Fixed various issues when quick-moving a belt with items in the additional belt slots it provides while using a controller.
  • Added functionality to revoke and undo friend rejection so it’s no longer a permanent rejection.
  • Fixed an issue where if the players opened chat after dying with Legacy Graphics active, all controls stopped functioning.
  • Fixed an issue where if a player entered the lobby, and then entered a game, the difficulty selection would be blank upon returning to the lobby.
  • Fixed an issue where if a skill was bound, then the key was removed from the skill binding, the unbound skill would still display without a binding.
  • Skills can now always be set to the left or right slots, regardless of if you meet the requirements to use them.
