Diablo 2: Resurrected players are wasting endgame items as a r

  • D2R Ladder Items: Resurrected players have already been wasting endgame items as a result of a typo from developed Blizzard inside official patch notes.

    In Diablo 2, runes are one pocketable item to boost your gear from the endgame with other bonuses. But if you install runes in a particular order with a specific item, you receive a unique bit of equipment known as the Runeword. Those items are some of the most effective gear from the game, however, they are fiddly - if someone makes a mistake slotting the runes into the gear, you have to destroy every one of them to make it right.

    New Runewords tend to be added in patches, and Blizzard spells the rune order needed to activate these new items. But from the Season 3 update, one Runeword inside the patch notes showed a wrong rune order, which typo has received players wasting their runes looking for an item that's ultimately useless.

    It seems the situation stems from some changes made within the PTR testing cycle. The Mosaic Runeword originally needed a Mal+Gul+Thul combo, but players weren't deeply in love with the cold damage given by Thul. So Mosaic became Mal+Gul+Amn, with Amn providing life steal instead.

    Community discussion indicates the patch notes were originally published together with the correct Mal+Gul+Amn combo, but eventually, a revision turned it back into Mal+Gul+Thul. They've now been corrected again, even so, the end result is always that there was of a day when Blizzard's mistake was happily encouraging players to waste their runes using a non-existent Runeword.

    It's not really new cheap d2r items: Resurrected season without some issues - remember when Season 2 was delayed because Blizzard "didn't plan very well"?
