Diablo Immortal August 2022 update brings new events, features and more

Dare to take on the Fractured Plane in the latest update!

Diablo Immortal is back with another Mini Update provided by the planes of Hell. With the Season Three Battle Pass, you previously walked the Adventurer’s Path, embarked on a Hero’s Journey, and began your transformation into an Aspect of Justice. All of the items listed below will be live after the maintenance is completed. Specific dates for anything going live after that are listed below. A journey into the Fractured Plane, the new Echo of the Immortal repeatable game mode, 36 new Legendary class items, and many more exciting Diablo Immortal additions await an August 2022 update!

Diablo Immortal August 2022 Update: New In-game Events

Fractured Plane Limited – Time Event

Even those with the greatest mental fortitude can become lost in the unrelenting darkness spread by the Burning Hells in a place like Sanctuary. Broken. Shattered. Trapped in the depths of their minds, the only way out is to enter the Fractured Plane.

The Fractured Plane is a new limited-time event in which players enter an unexplored 15-floor gauntlet inhabited by the Hells’ most ferocious minions. Your adventure in the Fractured Plane begins without the usual equipment, gems, and skills. Instead, you will have a pre-selected set of skills for your class. To progress, you must rely solely on your wits, the unstable gear you find, and the Chaos Coins you earn by defeating hordes of demons.

Best of all, only Legendary-level unstable gear will drop in the Fractured Plane, and the items you receive will complement the skills you start with, giving you the ability to make and tweak your build on the fly. When your journey in the Fractured Plane is over, all of your unstable gear will vanish.

At the Chaos Broker, you can exchange Chaos Coins for new items or Shards of Fortune. These shards raise your Fortune Rating, increasing your chances of receiving higher-quality Legendary items from chests on each floor. If you can make it to the fifteenth floor without dying more than five times, you will get rewards. Choose six of the Legendary items you’ve encountered during your run, and you’ll be rewarded with one at random to carry out of the Fractured Plane.

Echo of the Immortal

Rumors of an impending battle between the cunning Shadows and the exemplary Immortal have spread throughout Westmarch. The known might of the Immortal echoes throughout the city, from back alley conversations to passing exchanges across Rakkis Plaza, but can the Shadows usurp power? Echo of the Immortal—a limited-time, repeatable game mode—will be available for players who are at least Level 40 to showcase their PvP prowess in a Challenge of the Immortal-style battle from now until September 14 at 6 pm SGT / 3.30 pm IST server time.

In Echo of the Immortal, 15 players will compete against one randomly selected player imbued with Immortal power. If the group of players defeats the Immortal, the match becomes a free-for-all, with only the best-of-the-best claiming the reward and bragging rights! Speak to the Battleground Captain in Westmarch to try your hand at Echo of the Immortal.

Into the Dark Wood Limited-Time Event

Few people in Sanctuary are brave enough to stand up to the darkness and risk their lives for the defenseless. But you, adventurer, have dedicated your days to thinning out the ranks of the Burning Hells, ushering in safety where all hope had previously vanished. The oppressed look up to you, and you must travel into the unknown, Into the Dark Wood, to continue serving them.

From now until August 31 at 6 pm SGT / 3.30 pm IST server time, completing daily Into the Dark Wood tasks will earn you various types of heroic rewards. Completing enough tasks will also grant you milestone rewards, such as the festive Wreath of Blood Portrait Frame.

Hungering Moon

The moon’s insatiable hunger continues, and it craves more blood… possibly even yours! Gaze at the moon, bask in its sacred light, listen to its howl for sustenance, and lunar-laced blessings will be bestowed upon you. Meeting the moon’s requirements will earn you Moonslivers, which you can exchange for Blessings.

After obtaining seven Blessings, you will have earned enough goodwill with the moon to exchange them for a random reward. If you bless the moon enough, it will reward you with its flavor! From August 26, 6 pm SGT / 3.30 pm IST to August 29, 6 pm SGT / 3.30 pm IST server time, Diablo Immortal welcomes brave adventurers to assist in satiating the moon’s hunger.

Spawn of Damnation Cosmetic Set

The Horadric Order’s ancient tomes suggest that armor can be forged from demon flesh. While it is assumed to be completely protective and durable, there is some uncertainty about the effect this may have on the wearer’s mind. Will they, too, be a mindless Spawn of Damnation?

This diabolical panoply may not fool the demons of the Burning Hells, but it does send a message: their doom is approaching. Players can purchase the Spawn of Damnation Cosmetic Set from the in-game shop if they want to put on demon skin before their next battle.
