Uber Uniques in Diablo 4 are disabled after rampant player farming

5/5 - (1 vote)

The Harlequin Crest helmet appears to have dropped far more frequently from Helltide Chests since Diablo 4’s most recent update, 1.0.4, to the extent that Blizzard had to intervene again to completely stop the drop. The new Diablo game emphasizes its living economy and uncommon loot drops as a live-service hack ‘n’ slash, and obtaining extremely valuable loot cheaply could result in major issues in the road.

With the start of Season 1 of Diablo 4 scheduled for July 20, the game is set to shed its rosy launch-window spectacles and formally enter its live-service phase, which may make or break it for many gamers. It’s a pretty big deal when one of its rarest items suddenly appears, especially when it’s something as sought-after as the infamous Shako helmet.

Diablo 4 Players Miss Diablo 3 Feature

Players quickly realised they could swiftly and easily farm the Shako by looking for Helltide Chests when Diablo 4’s update 1.0.4 went live. The update made a few adjustments to these specific loot sources, which unintentionally greatly increased the rate at which the Harlequin Crest helm dropped. Those who were aware of this unforeseen behaviour naturally seized the chance to finally obtain the Shako, an item that was ordinarily rather rare to drop due to its status as an Ultra-Rare Unique item, the rarest quality available in the game. Quick to respond, Blizzard temporarily stopped allowing Uber Unique goods to drop in-game.

Since Blizzard stopped the egregious farming technique after many players had already earned their Harlequin Crest rewards, getting the Shako in Diablo 4 is now once again difficult. The developer may decide to remove these goods from the server rather than allowing the players to keep them. The Harlequin Crest is a rather potent item, therefore Blizzard might decide to make it less potent for the rest of the pre-season advancement so it doesn’t have a significant impact on the game’s economy.

It is important to note that Diablo 4’s economy is already rather harsh, and Blizzard appears to be taking special care to prevent players from becoming excessively wealthy too soon. One of the issues with live-service games is that minor errors can have significant repercussions in the future, particularly when it comes to how player resources are handled, thus Blizzard is obviously taking precautions for the time being.

Prior to the release of Season of the Malignant, Diablo 4 is still lacking important features, and it’s still unknown whether Blizzard even has any of them on the production schedule. Regardless, July 20 is quickly approaching, and if the most recent Shako farming event is any indication, some players will undoubtedly be expecting a new Diablo 4 loot cave to appear alongside the seasonal update.

Xbox One, PS4, PS5, PC, and Xbox Series X/S all support Diablo 4.
