• Players can test new Helltide event changes early on Diablo 4 Season 4 PTR before they impact all players on main servers.
  • Reddit user Atsnal discovered a consumable buff in Helltide events, hinting at difficulty increase and more loot in Season 4.
  • Specifically, it’s a consumable that increases Helltide monster level and Aberrant Cinder drops, hinting at a major change coming to this endgame activity.

While trying out the new features and changes coming to Diablo 4 on the Public Test Realm (PTR), some players discovered a major change that will impact Helltide events. As the PTR allows players to test the new mechanics from Diablo 4 Season 4, this change to Helltide events should soon be available for all players on the Diablo 4 main servers.

Less than a year after its original launch, Diablo 4 still gathers a faithful community of players eager to discover the themed seasons unveiled by Blizzard every three months. The latest release, Diablo 4 Season 3, introduced a new quest line centered around the demon Malphas and mysterious Constructs. Besides this new quest line, the seasonal dungeons, and the new Battle Pass, one of the most popular endgame activities in Diablo 4 are Helltide events where hordes of demons flood a specific part of Sanctuary. Players brave enough to kill them receive Aberrant Cinders, a currency used to open special chests called Tortured Gifts and receive powerful items.


Diablo 4: How to Play Season 4 Early

Players have the chance to try and offer feedback on the major changes coming to Diablo 4 Season 4 early thanks to a new Public Test Realm.

As the Diablo 4 Season 4 PTR will close its doors on April 9, a Reddit user known as Atsnal shared a discovery they made about a new change impacting Diablo 4 Helltide events. While exploring a cellar during a Helltide event, they found a consumable that increases Helltide monster level and Aberrant Cinder drops, hinting at a major change coming to this endgame activity. This buff not only means that a new kind of consumable will be available in Diablo 4, but that Helltide events will be harder in Season 4 and drop more loot for players ready to tackle this challenge.

In the comments to this Reddit post, players were glad to see a new change coming to Helltide events with the upcoming release of Diablo 4 Season 4. This update will give more reasons for players who have already reached the maximum level in Diablo 4 to keep on playing and improve their character. Some players also noted that dropping this specific consumable in cellars would make them relevant again, as the rewards for killing the monsters inhabiting the cellars weren’t deemed worth the trouble.

These Helltide events changes are not the only new mechanics coming to Diablo 4 with the release of Season 4. Global Community Development Director Adam Fletcher revealed that the rewards for the upcoming Diablo 4 Tormented Bosses will be adjusted before the launch of the new season. Diablo 4 Season 4 is set for release on May 14, 2024.
