Forgotten Nightmares is the first major update for Diablo Immortal. We describe the most important changes and novelties that the players will face.
The leaks circulating for several days now have been confirmed. Diablo Immortal – Diablo’s spin-off intended primarily for smartphones – will soon receive the first major update. Forgotten Nightmares, for that is the name of the update, will be made available on September 27. Some of the planned new features will be added later.
The location is designed for groups of 2 to 4 players at experience level 60 or higher. A distinctive feature of the Silent Monastery is to be the black fog – limiting visibility to a minimum and intensifying the power of demons – which will be dispelled with the help of statues (illuminating the area). Finally, the developers have prepared a boss fight: Ancient Nightmare.
Forgotten Nightmares – essential novelties
- We will be able to repeat the first mode indefinitely and it is supposed to involve defeating the old inhabitants of the castle in order to receive a number of bonuses, including access to rooms offering bonuses to the player who currently occupies them (one room per player).
- The second mode will be repeatable on a weekly basis, and the task is to stop eight waves of enemies for rewards and experience points. This mode will also offer an endless option (with no wave limit or restrictions on repeating the task) with a leaderboard. Top teams will receive a Cyrangar defense portrait frame for perseverance.
These tasks will be for players of at least experience level 20 who are already party members.
By participating in challenges at Cyrangar Castle, players will have a chance to earn Ancestral Weapons. Placing them on the Ancestor Board (located in the heart of Cyrangar Castle) will result in characters being assigned boosts to strength, intelligence and dexterity (for all warband members, one weapon per character). If the new weapon is used in the Cyrangar Castle quests, you will also receive new special powers that can be upgraded into additional invocation properties.
The Scions of the Storm battle pass will be dedicated to the eponymous storm. The pass includes 40 ranks tied to challenges and rewards, such as legendary gems, coats of arms, armguards and more. Those interested will be able to upgrade their battle pass throughout the season to one of two forms.
Demon leader Wrathborne will be faced by players with a combat rating of at least 6175. The reward for defeating the opponent will be crown of Wrathborne, giving 30 combat points and a 10% bonus to movement speed while in the Rifts of Challenges.
