This reduction aims to enhance overall player satisfaction. Furthermore, a forthcoming patch is expected to introduce visual cues for projectile attacks from Vampiric-affixed monsters, simplifying the identification of potential sources of healing for players exploring the world of Sanctuary.

Moving on, the Suppressor affix has received a significant overhaul in Diablo 4 Update v1.3.1. The Suppressor Field, previously constantly active, now operates with a 6-second duration and a 50–75% uptime. This field can be terminated if the monster carrying the affix is subject to specific conditions, such as being Stunned, Frozen, Knocked Down, or Dazed.

Furthermore, adjustments have been implemented in dungeon layouts and monster spawns for improved gameplay dynamics. Nightmare Dungeon Sigils now provide more transparency to players by displaying the levels of monsters corresponding to the tier, allowing for a clearer understanding of the challenges that await.

A multitude of support skills, such as Frigid, Bleeding, Electrocution, Poison, Dusk, & Burning, now deal more damage as well.

Coming to bug fixes, Diablo 4 Update v1.3.1 resolves a fair amount of accessibility problems. Screen Reader issues have been addressed, ensuring accurate readings of available points in the skill tree, paragon menus, and various enchanting scenarios.
