Diablo 3’s Latest Patch Out Now, Adds “Vacuum Pickup” for Certain Items


The latest update for Diablo III is now available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, bringing the game up to version 2.2.0.

As previously announced, this is a wide-ranging patch that introduces a ton of new features and items. These include new types of Treasure Goblins, Legendary gems, Legendary powers, Rift content, and Seasonal rewards. In town, you’ll now find a wardrobe located next to Myriam the Mystic. Accessing this will let you manage any cosmetic items you own, including things like wings, pets, pennants, and portrait frames.

Standard health potions have been removed from the game, with the Bottomless Health Potion, which restores 60 percent of your health on use, taking its place. This move comes as part of Blizzard’s attempt to streamline the process of looting items from large piles.

Also on that front, there is now a “vacuum” effect that occurs when picking up any crafting material that causes any other materials of that type within 20 yards to also be picked up. Gems take it one step further; pick one up and all other gems within 20 yards will be collected.

You can check out the extensive list of patch notes, which detail the many changes to player skills, set items, and Rifts, on Blizzard’s website.
