Diablo 4 patch notes for its latest hotfix arrive, as Diablo 4 patch 1.1.1 hotfix 6 is now out with big buffs to Wrathful Hearts and Wrathful Invokers. If you’re trying to nab the strongest Malignant Hearts and craft the best Diablo 4 builds in Season 1 of the RPG game, you’re in luck – this Diablo 4 update is about to make farming the best gear a lot smoother.

This Diablo 4 patch changes the drop rates for Wrathful Hearts dramatically. The Season of the Malignant just delivered a huge round of buffs with Blizzard’s Diablo 4 patch 1.1.1, and now the developer has followed up again with another very welcome change, allowing you to get your hands on the strongest Diablo 4 Malignant Hearts much more consistently than before.

Drop rates and craft chances for Wrathful Hearts and Invokers have been boosted to five times their previous rate, turning what was a pretty elusive item into a much more achievable drop.
