Diablo Immortal Unlocks New Inferno Difficulties

Hearthrot Demons Blizzard

While everyone is busy with Diablo IV, Blizzard has actually released a new patch for its mobile ARPG, Diablo Immortal, recently. In fact, you might want to fire the game up on your mobile device because this update is huge! One of the things that you will find very appealing is the new Inferno Difficulty, where you will face even tougher enemies with a promise of new shiny rewards.

Prepare for Battle

If you want to unlock the game's hardest difficulty levels, you have to be at least Paragon Level 800. After meeting that requirement, defeat Phangwrth, Warmth-Feaster on Hell Difficulty VIII to unlock Inferno Difficulty I.

Once you've farmed the said difficulty level enough times and gained new items to make yourcharacters stronger, you can then defeat the Hearthrot Demons. These new demons are terrifying and will make quick work of those who are not prepared, so only face them if you have the proper gear and adequate Paragon levels. Here's a list of the new Hearthrot Demons:

  • Vhansoon, Desolation's Scourge
  • Strazos, Steadfast Decay (unlocks Inferno Difficulty II)
  • Gebdu, Mountain Breaker
  • Khuluul, the Crooked Grin (Inferno Difficulty III)
  • Yamnaal of the Deluge
  • Saarodan, Sky-Sunderer

Hearthrot Demons drop Demonic Remains once defeated, each of which matches an applicable slot in the Helliquary. Once you've vanquished all of them and collected their remains, they will be available in the Helliquary Gauntlet.

While taking them on in a series of fights is challenging, completing the Inferno Helliquary Gauntlet on each difficulty level will earn you some cosmetics from the Scions of the Storm Argent set. If you have what it takes, visit Rayek in Westmarch to begin the gauntlet.

New Mechanic: Stances Blizzard

You might be wondering what other incentives the Inferno Difficulty brings other than increased XP gain and improved drop rates. Well, playing the game on the Inferno Difficulty unlocks a second set of weapon slots. Equipping items to these slots allow you to use stances to help you deal with the increasingly menacing minions of hell.

Each class in the game has an offensive and defensive stance and you can switch between them every 30 seconds. Switching to a stance will boost its effects three-fold for a few seconds, allowing you to reap the maximum benefits.

Stances are pretty handy since you'll be tackling even harder content. The Barbarian's Offensive Stance, Frenzy, increases primary attack speed by 20% for three seconds. After the initial duration ends, this bonus is reduced to just 10%. It's meager but it is still useful.
