Diablo 3 Patch 2.2.0: The Corrupted Ashbringer comes to Diablo

Blizzard recently posted the official patch notes for the patch 2.2.0 PTR. The highlights of this patch are new items and some long-awaited quality of life improvements. As players have jumped onto the PTR, they’ve also started to discover many undocumented changes, including a new weapon: the Corrupted Ashbringer.

Yes, that Ashbringer. Its legendary power transforms the weapon into its uncorrupted form, as shown in the screenshot above from reddit. This isn’t the first time a popular WoW weapon has found its way into Diablo 3. Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker was introduced in patch 2.0. I patiently await a Diablo version of Thori’dal for my demon hunter.

Here are a few of the highlights from the patch notes:

  • Regular Health Potions have been removed from the game. The Health Potion slot on the action bar is now a bottomless Heath Potion that will heal you for 60% of your maximum Life
  • When crafting gems and items the entire quantity will now be crafted at once
  • Rift Guardians’ positions now always show on the map or minimap regardless of your distance from them
  • Several existing Legendary items have been updated to include a unique Legendary power
  • Many existing set bonuses have been re-designed, and demon hunters, barbarians, and wizards have brand new 6-piece sets

Check out the full patch notes here or hop onto the PTR and test it for yourself.
