Horrific Vision Rewards, Patch 8.3 Hotfixes – March 11, 2020, Diablo Season 20

Beginning with scheduled weekly maintenance in each region the week of March 17, all gear rewards from Horrific Visions will be Corrupted.

We’ve heard from many players that Corrupted items were not obtainable enough, limiting their ability to play with the system and its inherent tradeoffs. This change will substantially increase the number of Corrupted items reliably earned each week, allowing players to choose from among a greater selection of Corrupted pieces and enjoy using those that work best in a given situation.

Dungeons and Raids

  • Ny’alotha, the Waking City
    • Characters are now required to have Ashjra’kamas, Shroud of Resolve to queue for Raid Finder Wing 4, “The Waking Dream”.
      • Developers’ note: Due to the mechanics of both Wing 4’s boss fights, players who do not have the legendary cloak equipped are immediately mind controlled, burdening other players in their raid by not contributing to the kill. By enforcing this new restriction, Raid Finder groups will be set up for success and have a much higher chance of completing “The Waking Dream”.
    • N’Zoth the Corruptor
      • Increased the radius for Synaptic Shock to 15 yards (was 8 yards) on Raid Finder difficulty.
      • Reduced the total radius and expansion rate of Creeping Anguish on Raid Finder difficulty.
        • Developers’ note: These quality-of-life changes should increase the damage output of Raid Finder groups, specifically empowering them to bring down Psychus before it casts Manifest Madness and effectively becomes unkillable while wiping the raid.
    • Mythic Keystone Dungeon
      • Siege of Boralus
        • Sergeant Bainbridge (Horde) / Chopper Redhook (Alliance)
          • Damage inflicted when Heavy Ordnance expires now scales with keystone level. Damage inflicted when players or creatures run into Heavy Ordnance already scaled properly and remains unchanged.

Items and Rewards

  • Fixed a bug that allowed Sanguifang’s Pulsating Canine to be used outside of Kul Tiras, Mechagon, Nazjatar, and Zandalar.


  • Slightly increased the drop rate for Felblaze Infernal, Ironhoof Destroyer, and Swift Zulian Panther mounts.
