Diablo III’s Next Patch Is All About Cosmetics

Diablo III’s Next Patch Is All About Cosmetics

Cosmetic items weren’t really a part of Diablo III. Players could get a few pets and wings as rewards for spending money on a collectors’ edition or on a Blizzcon ticket, and that was it. The upcoming patch 2.4.1 will change this by adding a ton of new cosmetic loot.

Patch 2.4.1 won’t be a huge one, but the amount of new wings, pets and other transmog stuff is remarkable. The patch’s on the PTR and people have already found some really rad items, dropped by various bosses, uber bosses, treasure goblins and rare monsters.

The top one, for example, is a butterfly-looking wing, called Wings of Kokabiel, dropped by the uber version of Maghda. But here’s some more. Building a character with butterfly wings, a Starcraft Terran marine helmet and a Yeti pet will be absolutely possible. Hooray!

  • Hmm… in times past, I wouldnt have cared in the slightest, but in the modern game, where upgrades become increasingly harder to find, I’m finding myself looking at transmogs more and more to get my toons looking a certain way.

    My way of thinking has come full circle – style DOES matter!

  • Future of gaming when “content” is cosmetic
    To be fair they have pulled Diablo 3 completely around.

    • The devs at Blizzard called and are devastated. They’ll get back to you as soon as they finish counting their exceeding large piles of money.
