  • Martial Arts
    • - Martial Arts has been completely reworked and now functions the following way:
      • - Martial Arts has been reworked to cast the stage of the skill you are on when you attack with that skill so if a player has two charges they will use the second charge of that skill on attack and on the third attack they will use the third and reset back to 1. This converts the charge system to a "stage" system where your attacks are based on the amount of charges you have or the "stage" you are on and cycle from stages 1-3 and repeat. Finishers are no longer required however if you use one you will cast every stage of every charge you have generated. Charges are also universal so you can combo from stage 1 fists of fire into stage 2 blades of ice and finish with stage 3 cobra strike then begin a new combo string

Season 4 Patch 9 (2022-04-01)

This was likely the patch that implemented the temporary crafters league - the date is estimated based on this change from a patch during that league on 2022-04-04:

  • Rathma is now enabled in single player (was added last patch but not included in patch notes)

Other patch changes during the crafters league only applied to the league itself rather than season 4 in general, so they're listed in that category instead.

Crafters Race League - April 1st 2022 through May 6th 2022

Notes

Since D2r ladders will also be 4 months long, PD2's S5 is being delayed until about halfway through the D2r ladder (D2r ladder scheduled to begin April 28th) in order to stagger the reset dates going forward. Since it's been ~4 months from the beginning of S4 and the next season won't be for a while, this mini-league with a twist will be available to anyone itching for a reset.

Crafters Race League - will begin April 1st 10am PST, and ends April 22nd May 6th

  • Rare/craft-focused league without unique/set/runeword items, except unique charms (Annihilus, Hellfire Torch, Gheed's Fortune)
  • 200% experience mode in hell mode
  • Only 35% rejuvenation potions will exist, no full rejuvenations
  • Maps will be players 5 drops
  • Rare items will roll a minimum number of affixes based on their ilvl (4 affixes for 45+, 5 affixes for 65+, 6 affixes for 85+)
  • Rare items can be used in crafting recipes
  • Map events will spawn much more frequently, but only treasure goblin and dark wanderer events will spawn
  • Akara will sell Respec Tokens
  • Larzuk will sell Larzuk's Puzzleboxes
  • Anya will sell DClone/Rathma portal items (Vision of Terror, Voidstone)
  • Diablo Clone and Rathma have had their resistances, health, and damage reduced

This league will temporarily replace S4 on the live realm - S4 will resume afterward with restored S4 characters. Before S5 begins, S4 characters will be transferred to non-ladder. Race league characters will not be transferred to non-ladder.
