Diablo 4 1.0.2 unofficial patch notes surprise players as Druid gets buffed

Diablo 4 1.0.2 unofficial patch notes surprise players as Druid gets buffed
Nico Vergara Updated on by

An unofficial set of Diablo 4 patch notes have recently started making the rounds on social media and the changes allegedly made include buffs to several Druid skills. This decision to improve the shapeshifter has surprised fans as the Druid has often been considered one of the strongest classes in the game since the open beta early access period.

Aside from these enhancements, however, the Rogue and Necromancer also apparently received slight buffs to some talents, though the changes made pale in comparison to those of the Druid’s. Fortunately, the game’s resident weapons expert received neither a buff nor a nerf so your Diablo 4 Barbarian build should remain intact until the release date.

But with that said, if you want to know what the rest of the changes look like, then we’ve listed all of them below.

Diablo 4 1.0.2 unofficial patch notes

As mentioned before, the most significant part of these unofficial patch notes were the balance changes made to the Druid, Rogue, and Necromancer.
