Diablo Immortal patch notes are here for the latest update to the Blizzard RPG game. Diablo Immortal patch 1.6.2 introduces a character server transfer feature, with server merges planned in early November to help ensure players of the multiplayer game have enough people to group up with for activities such as the Diablo Immortal Shadow War or team up with players in Diablo Immortal warbands. The 1.6.2 update also boasts the season six start date and details on its battle pass, as well as a whole host of new legendary items.

Probably the biggest news for players is the ability to transfer their character between servers, and the introduction of server merges. Players have been calling for these for a while now, reporting that some servers can feel “dead” with a relative lack of active players. Blizzard notes that server merges will happen on November 9, with multiple merges taking place in North America, South America, and East Asia. Community manager SinfulScribe notes that this list is just the first round, and that Blizzard “will continue to monitor server populations in all regions and plans to initiate additional server merges based on these populations in the future.”

Diablo Immortal season six begins on October 27 and ends on November 24 at 3am server time. The season six battle pass ‘Below the Sands’ focuses on Zoltun Kulle, and features the usual 40 ranks of challenges and rewards including Diablo Immortal legendary crests, hilts, new Below the Sands weapon and armour cosmetics, and even some Diablo Immortal legendary gems. As always, you can get some rewards from the free track, but will need to purchase the Empowered battle pass with real money to get all the rank rewards and cosmetics.

Elsewhere, the Hungering Moon event returns once again, much to the amusement of the Diablo Immortal Reddit who are busy joking about its frequency. There’s also a new limited-time bundle for players at character level 40 and above called the Boon of the Progenitors, which can be purchased through the in-game shop between October 26 and November 16 at 3am server time. It offers 1560 Diablo Immortal eternal orbs – the game’s primary premium currency – along with fourteen days of login rewards including two legendary gems.

There’s also a boost to experience rewards for all dungeons, some improvements to the Ancestral Tableau found in your warband’s home at Castle Cyrangar, and the previously announced change to the Diablo Immortal Blessing of the Worthy gem that has left players calling for refunds on their purchases of its related bundles. There are also a total of 36 new legendary items – six for each of the Diablo Immortal classes – that will hope to vie for their spot among our pick of the best Diablo Immortal legendaries.
