Diablo 4 Season 3 Mid-Season Update: All balance changes

Diablo 4 is currently undergoing its third Season called Season of the Construct, and while it seems like yesterday since it was announced, the Mid-Season update is just one week away. Today the team behind Diablo 4 at Blizzard streamed a new Campfire Chat which discussed several things such as the returning Vampiric Powers and game features such as Trials and the infamous Gauntlet.

However, for all of those that thrive on the percentages and class predominance, they have also unveiled some balance changes for the Mid-Season update. Let’s take a look at what we can expect for next week’s update in Diablo 4.
