Just a few days into the launch of Diablo 4, and Blizzard are still hard at work on more hotfixes for the immensely popular ARPG.

A new set of hotfixes, numbered 6 & 7 have now been applied to the game’s backend servers and made a number of minor changes to world bosses, dungeons, and a quick tweak to the rogue. There’s also a tweak to the Pinnacle Boss – though the game’s community director notes that the boss has not actually been unlocked yet, though we’ll be updated when they are.

As usual, we’ll remind you that these hotfixes are separate to the the games larger patches, such as the recent 1.0.2d patch, in that they don’t require a download on your part, as all the changes are server side.

Here then, from the official Blizzard forums, are the Hotfix patch notes so far – and we’ll try and keep this page up to date as new ones roll in.
