Diablo 4 Leaks Tease Imminent Arrival of World Tier 5
Diablo IV holds its beauty in the form of a Tier system. World Tiers directly impact the level of challenge by determining the strength of your adversaries and the amount of experience and gold you obtain while battling the hordes. As you ascend the World Tiers, the risks and rewards intensify, necessitating careful consideration before progressing to the next level in the game.
The latest data mine leak suggests developers plan to add a new World Tier. Evidence from the data-miner, DatamineARPG indicates the potential existence of a Diablo 4 World Tier 5. Uncovered files contain official artwork for World Tier V, although its permanence is uncertain. Furthermore, evidence suggests the presence of a marker that could lead to a pivotal dungeon in Fractured Peaks, serving as a requirement to unlock World Tier V.
A new data mine leak suggests Diablo 4 World Tier 5.
Three new Gemstone ranks, 6, 7, and 8, are to be added with improved Gemstone effects.
Seasonal Stash tab will also be included in the game.
New season chapters and challenges are also in development.
The main leak points cover three basic points. Gemstones Rank 6, 7, and 8 have been confirmed by analyzing code similarities and predicting their respective effects. Further challenges and season chapters are also in development.
The main Gemstone effect, as correlated to the new gemstone ranks, can be speculated as follows:
Amethyst: Gives 9%, 10%, and 11% increase as Weapon or Armor while 24.7%, 27.1%, and 29.6% increase as Jewelry for ranks 6, 7, and 8, respectively
Emerald: Gives 13.5%, 15.0%, and 16.5% increase as Weapon; +370, +520, and +700 as Armor while 24.7%, 27.1%, and 29.6% increase as Jewelry for rank 6, 7, and 8, respectively.
Ruby: Gives 27.0%, 30.0%, 33.0% increase as Weapon; 4.5%, 5.0%, 5.5% increase as Armor while 24.7%, 27.1%, and 29.6% increase as Jewelry for rank 6, 7 and 8 respectively.
Topaz: Gives 22.5%, 25.0%, 27.5% increase as Weapon; 11.0%, 12.0%, 13.0% as Armor while 24.7%, 27.1%, and 29.6% increase as Jewelry for rank 6, 7 and 8 respectively.
Sapphire: Gives 13.5%, 15.0%, and 16.5% increase as Weapon; 3.5%, 4.0%, 4.5% as Armor while 24.7%, 27.1%, and 29.6% increase as Jewelry for rank 6, 7 and 8 respectively.
Diamond: Gives 17.0%, 19.0%, and 21.0% increase as Weapon; +5.5%, +6.0%, +6.5% as Armor while 9.0%, 10.0%, and 11% increase as Jewelry for rank 6, 7 and 8 respectively.
Skull: Gives +40, +64, and +100 increase as Weapon; +5.5%, +6.0%, and +6.5% as Armor while +300, +350, and +380 increase as Jewelry for ranks 6, 7, and 8, respectively.
Note: These are only speculations based on the code similarities to the previous World Tier gemstone rank data code. These may vary.
Limited information makes it unclear what benefits and challenges World Tier V may bring. DatamineARPG discovered evidence of three new gemstone tiers, with the seventh and eighth tiers tentatively named “magnificent” and “perfect.” Additionally, potential features for Diablo IV’s first season, like a seasonal stash tab, have been hinted at. High-level players excel in World Tier IV, but casual players require more time to reach their level. A new world tier may increase the maximum level beyond the current cap of 100.
The timing for the potential introduction of World Tier V remains uncertain, but it could coincide with one of the game’s seasons or align with the release of a new expansion. Blizzard, the developer of Diablo IV, has confirmed the commencement of the game’s first season in mid-July and the ongoing development of two expansions for Diablo IV.
During its prelaunch phase, Diablo IV surpassed the sales of all previous Blizzard Entertainment titles. Players have already logged a staggering 93 million hours of gameplay, with the number continuing to grow. This success is the witness to the anticipation of a World Tier V in the gaming community.
