New Difficulty Levels
Test your strength, if you dare. You’ve sharpened your weapons on Torment X. However, new challenges will test you with the addition Torment XI–XIII difficulties to the game. These challenges are filled with progressively better loot.
New and Updated Items
As with previous patches, Patch 2.4.2 brings updates to many Legendary and Set Items and also adds a few new items and Legendary powers. Here are some of the items we’ve updated and don’t forget to check out our PTR patch notes for all the details.
User Interface Updates
Finally, a few changes to the user interface. Those who enjoy taking screenshots will soon have a hotkey that hides the in-game UI for cleaner shots. We’re also adding unique pylon minimap icons to Nephalem Rifts and Greater Rifts, and a unique icon for the Menagerist Treasure Goblin.
Adventure Mode Changes
Blizzard is also sweetening the Adventure Mode rewards, starting with Nephalem Rifts. You’re now guaranteed a Greater Rift Key when completing any Rift, with a chance to get a second (or even a third) key as you increase the game’s difficulty. They’ve also adjusted drop rates for Infernal Machines, with a 100% drop chance in Torment IV, and an increasing chance for a second machine to drop as you go up in difficulty.
