Diablo Immortal Patch 1.8 Age of Falling Towers update brings the Dread Weaver dungeon, the new Accursed Tower mode and more

The third major update to Diablo Immortal Age of Falling Towers will let players experience the Dread Weaver dungeon, the new Accursed Tower PvP, and PvE mode, and more as patch 1.8 goes live. Apart from the Dread Weaver dungeon, the new Accursed Tower PvP, and PvE mode, this update also brings The Astral Bloom Elite Quest, and a plethora of updates to existing features.

Diablo Immortal Age of Falling Towers update: Key Highlights

Accursed Towers Clan-Based Game Mode

Auras of power emanate from the mysterious obelisks that have recently been discovered that date back countless ages. The inhabitants of Sanctuary yearn to seize such power for themselves but lack the knowledge to do so. A brand-new game mode called Accursed Towers combines PvE and PvP gameplay. Clans will compete for control of towers, giving all Clan members strong bonuses and the chance to obtain fresh Cursed Goods. To take part in Accursed Towers, players must be members of a Clan.

The Accursed Towers description that follows only provides a high-level overview of the game mode. After the maintenance time, we intend to send extra information via in-game mail to help Clan Leaders make the most of Accursed Towers. Also, there are in-game tutorials that can assist you in quickly becoming familiar with this new function. Click or tap the icons in the Accursed Towers menu to get to those.

How to Claim Towers

Up to 2 towers may be controlled by each Clan during a Season. All tower ownership will be reset at the conclusion of each eight-week Season.

Players will have a large selection of Unclaimed Towers to choose from at the beginning of a Season. Your Clan’s leader can choose a tower from the Accursed Tower’s menu and attempt to claim it for your Clan during the first week of a Season, from Monday at 3 a.m. to Saturday at 7 p.m. server time. If successful, your Clan will enter a PvE battle against Hell’s minions for control of the tower by Purifying it. During the first week of the Season, a single tower can only be claimed by a Clan.

Your Clan’s goal is to gather Cursed Shards from dead demons while battling demonic hordes for control of the tower. Players are unable to just attack opponents as they normally would. To harm your enemies, you must first identify and turn on the tower’s Curse Sources. Enemies will become more susceptible as a result, allowing you to eliminate them and take their Cursed Shards.

The top 10 Clan members who have earned the most Cursed Shards at the end of the timer will have them added to your team’s total. A Clan may make as many runs as they like to gather Cursed Shards at the same tower, but only the highest team total will be kept.

Within your Clan, claiming a tower is reason for celebration, but now you have to defend it. Hell’s minions will make an effort to reclaim the house they took. Demonic incursions start when your Corruption metre reaches a particular point. Your tower must be swiftly defended by members of your Clan, otherwise it will be lost and can be taken back by another Clan.

But by energising your tower, you can fend off Hell’s mindless marauders. Your Clan leader can decide whether to upgrade your tower by selecting it from the Accursed Tower’s menu. Not only would doing so stop demonic attacks on it, but it will also improve the bonuses your tower offers and the recurring awards the Rewards Chest inside of it offers. Be careful because upgrading your tower has a price; other Clans will be able to challenge your clan to a PvP battle for possession of the tower.

Contesting a Tower Through PvP

Certainly, the other Clans on your server will concur. Clans are permitted to control a second tower beginning in the second week of a season. Clans will be able to attempt to challenge for tower possession from another Clan in an all-out PvP match from Saturday at 9 p.m. until Sunday at 12 a.m. server time. If your Clan wins, they’ll not only take home the glory and a brand-new tower from which to draw goodies on occasion, but also a plethora of gifts from taking part in the PvP match, some of which might even be cursed items.

Because the first season of Accursed Towers begins mid-week, the schedule for the first week will differ from subsequent seasons. The gameplay itself will be as detailed above. Here’s the schedule:

  • March 30 after the maintenance period–March 31 at 3 a.m. server time: The Clan Leader will decide which tower they would like to try to claim.
  • March 31, 3 a.m.–April 1, 7 p.m. server time: Collect Cursed Shards at the chosen tower.
  • April 1, 7 p.m. server time: Cursed Shard Clan totals are counted and the Clan with the most at each tower claims that tower.

Cursed Items

Cursed Items are a new type of Legendary Item that has a Cursed Property. They are obtainable from completing PvP matches and can also be dropped by enemies while collecting Cursed Shards from a PvE match. All Legendary Items that drop anywhere in Sanctuary will also have a chance of being a Cursed Item.

Cursed Items come with both a Positive and Negative Property attached to them. Neither Property will activate unless you have at least one other Cursed Item equipped that shares the same Positive Property. If you have two or more equipped Cursed Items, you will receive both the Positive and Negative Property effects from both. Positive Properties will grow in power as you equip multiple Cursed Items with the same Positive Property, with increases occurring at 4 and 6 Items.

Equipping both things will give you their shared Positive Property as well as their Negative Properties because they both share the same Positive Property: decreases Main Attack damage and lengthens the cooldown for dash skills.

Cursed items have two sides to them, but they can also give you incredibly strong bonuses that will strengthen the character you play.

Dread Reaver Dungeon

After finishing the mission Path of Horror and advancing to Hell V difficulty, a brand-new dungeon experience called Dread Reaver becomes available. Get on board and carry on with Diablo Immortal’s Main Mission as you search for the elusive Cult of Terror and attempt to recover a stolen Worldstone shard before they can give it to one of their commanders, the Bride of Hell.

The Dread Reaver, a legendary ship that eats all in its path, may be found in Sanctuary’s deepest waters. While you battle drowned anomalies, sea monsters, and the ship’s commander, an exile from a long-forgotten place, maintain your footing on its decks.

Elite Quest: The Astral Bloom

You will help a strange wizard trying to repair the damage done by his past in this new Elite Quest, which is available at Taite, the Adventure Seeker in Westmarch. You will also battle a foe who will cause reality to quiver. Explore the terrifying vistas of the Astral Realm, guard a mystic observatory that belongs to one of the Mage Clans, and go to a village that is under siege. Adventurer, the Astral Bloom is waiting for you.

The Astral Bloom Elite Quest may only be started once a player has finished Stormpoint’s Main Quest and has an Adventure Journal in their hands.

3 New Legendary Gems in Diablo Immortal Age of Falling Towers update

A total of three brand-new legendary gems have been added to aid in enhancing the construction of your character. We enjoy watching players use each new batch of available Legendary Gems to create distinctive builds, and we can’t wait to see how they’ll apply the newest trio. Each gem’s values below correspond to their Rank-10 rankings:

Enemies hit by the gloom blades take 24% increased damage from your Primary Attacks for 3 seconds. Cannot occur more often than once every 20 seconds.

New Set Items in Diablo Immortal Age of Falling Towers update: Banquet Of Eyes

A new Set has been added as well—Banquet of Eyes—it is centered around punishing enemies suffering from your damage-over-time effects and rewarding you with buffs.

Activity Calendar and Scheduler

Devs are introducing some quality-of-life improvements that will make using the Activities Calendar and Scheduler more convenient.

  • The tap area in the Warbands and Clan menus has been increased.
  • Activities that occur “today” or “tomorrow” will state that instead of the numerical date.

The Navigation menu also received a few quality-of-life improvements to work in tandem with the Clan-centric features released in this Major Update.

  • A new Clan tab has been added to the Navigation menu. Both the new Accursed Tower game mode and Clan-related features that were previously found located in the Faction tab can be found in the new Clan tab.
  • The Quest tab will be removed from the Navigation menu. Quests can still be accessed via the Quest Tracker.

These changes are solely for the UI and do not alter the gameplay of the features they support.

New Bestiary Entries

We’re adding 20 new Horadric Bestiary entries to catalogue enemies fought in Stormpoint and new Helliquary bosses. They’re available wherever you slaughter monsters! After a player collects 10 Bestiary entries, they’ll receive a Rare Crest. Players will also receive a Legendary Crest after collecting 50 and 100 Bestiary Entries.

Clan and Cycle of Strife

Finding, joining, and recruiting for a Clan will now be more accessible than ever. As Clans become more critical in the continual struggle to control towers around Sanctuary, we want to arm both players and Clan Leaders with more means to find like-minded individuals. As such, we have made some improvements:

  • When players search for available Clans to join, they will be sorted from highest to lowest on the list according to their current number of Online Players.
  • Players without a Clan will receive more guidance on joining a clan and more easily see suggestions for Clans containing a high number of active players.
  • Players currently in a Clan can now apply to a new Clan without leaving their current Clan. If accepted to the new Clan, they will automatically leave the old one and join the new one.
  • Clan Leaders will now have a Member Recruitment interface available under the Clan tab, making it easier for them to find both players without a clan and in clans with low membership.
  • Dark Clan Leaders can now directly invite Adventurers to join them. If an Adventurer accepts, they will automatically become a Shadow.

Hide Helmet Cosmetic Option

Players can now hide their helmet for select Cosmetic Sets. To hide your character’s helmet for eligible Cosmetic Sets, navigate to the Cosmetics menu and click the Hide Helmet button on the bottom left corner of the Cosmetic preview screen.
