Latest D3 Patch Update 2.4.1

First lets talk about the major changes for Season 6 with patch 2.4.1

Taeguk Gem:

D3 Taeguk Gem

D3 Taeguk Gem

-Taeguk will now only work for channeled powers
-Taeguk will now stack more quickly, but also drop off more quickly. The maximum is now ten stacks, and you’ll now lose the stack after 1.5 seconds instead of 3 seconds
-The Armor % component of Taeguk has been changed to 2% per stack

The reasoning behind this is that Taeguk will complement those moments when your needing to pump out more damage and of course Blizzard controlling your characters. They for sure don’t want you to overpower the game.

Lastly, they are changing both Twisted Sword and Solanium. Biggest reason is they are seeing Wizard players spam the Energy Twisters while playing in party groups  and getting health globes from all the monsters being killed. It’s making the game a lot easier to go through levels and Greater Rifts.

Thus changing the stats on the stacks of the Twisted Sword and Solanium.

  • Solanium is getting an internal cooldown (ICD) of 8 seconds
  • Twisted Sword is getting a cap at 5 Energy Twisters

Couple of things to consider for the use of these updated items. For players using the Solanium, Now you will be able to generate additional health globes while removing any health globe spamming in game play moving forward. And for players using Twisted Swords, Wizard players won’t be able to really spam the Energy Twisters anymore.

Now lets talk about some of the changes in the non-season of Diablo 3 taken from their site by click here
