Several problems pertaining to quests and dungeons were also addressed in the latest update of Diablo 4. These include the traversal issue restricting progression in The Blind Eye quest, the Mother’s Judgement enemy spawning at the wrong time in Whispers from the Past quest, and multiple issues where progress would be blocked if the player used a Town Portal during specific sequences.

An issue where the Imprint cost for Legendary Aspects would be inaccurately displayed along with the problem where the Upgrade Glyph tab wouldn’t close after moving away from the Awakened Glyphstone have also been resolved.

Other fixes in this patch include localization improvements, enhanced stability, and performance across all platforms, and the resolution of an issue where the camera would pan from the point of death back to the respawn point instead of instantly moving for players in Local Co-Op.
