The Diablo 4 update 1.1.3 finally makes crowd-control more manageable. The update includes a number of changes to how crowd-control abilities work, making them less likely to completely lock players down.
Here are some of the key changes in the update:
- Cooldown reduction for crowd-control abilities has been increased. This means that players will be able to break out of crowd-control effects more quickly.
- The duration of crowd-control effects has been reduced. This means that players will be less likely to be caught in a continuous loop of crowd-control effects.
- The effectiveness of crowd-control effects has been reduced against players who are moving. This means that players will be less likely to be crowd-controlled if they are constantly moving.
- Some crowd-control abilities have had their effects changed. For example, the “Fear” ability will now only cause enemies to flee for a short period of time, instead of completely stunning them.
These changes are designed to make crowd-control abilities more fair and balanced. They will make it more difficult for enemies to completely lock players down, and they will give players more opportunities to fight back.
The Diablo 4 update 1.1.3 is also adding a number of other changes, including:
- New world events
- New items
- New enemies
- Bug fixes
The update is available now for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S.
