Diablo III: Patch 2.7.1 Now Live

Diablo III Patch 2.7.1 Blizzard

Diablo III Patch 2.7.1 is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC. 

Those who are excited to try the new Ethereal weapons will have to wait until tomorrow for the start of Season 24. But there are still many things to be excited about in this update.

Patch Highlights

Most of the changes only apply to the Monk, and they are pretty big. For instance, the Mystic Ally’s rune, Fire Ally, now splits into two instead of five. To compensate for this change, the fire allies should now explode more consistently and deal more damage. The radius of the explosion has been increased as well.

The Earth Ally rune for Mystic Ally has been buffed considerably. In the past, its active effect will turn the ally into a boulder and it rolls over the enemy dealing 380% physical damage per tick. The update increases that to a whopping 4,500% based on your weapon damage.

Also, the Rabid Strike Monk weapon retains its original effect. The only difference is that the damage of your spirit spenders is increased by 350 to 450% when it is mimicked on a nearby target.

Another notable change is the Wizard’s Mirror Image ability. It’s more of a quality-of-life improvement where a counter is added on the ability’s icon to show you how many mirror images are active.
