Before release, several adjustments will be made. Since the beta weekends, Blizzard has added several repairs and upgrades to Diablo 4.
According to the studio, the improvements were made after considering player comments and gameplay data. The modified version of the game will be available for purchase.

One of these adjustments concerns cellars, which now reliably reward a chest upon completion and have a 60% chance of hosting a dungeon event. With characters, all classes have access to crowd control-breaking skills with the proper cooldowns and have adjusted their talents.
Several dungeons have been optimized throughout all zones to reduce the need for retracing, and Dungeon Events now have a higher likelihood of spawning.
Bosses like T’chort, Malnok, Vhenard, and others had their melee character difficulty reevaluated, which changed the attacks and combat dynamics. Additionally, The Butcher was reassessed and will be more challenging to defeat in World Tiers 3 and 4.
Numerous quality-of-life improvements were made, and multiple UI problems were resolved. This includes moving the conversation to the left side of the screen and switching the Sans Serif typeface with a new Serif one. More changes were added to Diablo 4 than those mentioned above, so check the link for the complete list.
