Hungering Moon Weekend Event

Diablo Immortal is getting it's first weekend event, the Hungering Moon Weekend event. This event seems to be a quest based event, where competing quests will award you Moonslivers. These Moonslivers can be traded to a vendor for Blessings. Then, once you have enough blessings, you can trade them in for a random reward.

This event will go live on July 15, 2022 at 3 AM server time, and will end July 18, 2022 at 3 AM server time.

What is Coming in the Future?

While there's a lot of stuff coming in this patch, Blizzard isn't done yet. They note as well that there's a big patch coming later in the month. One of the big features that's coming is Class Change! They will also be adding new content.

We'd love to see a revamp to the Legendary Gem system. The acquisition and upgrades of legendary gems is unattainable for most players, so making it easier would be great.

And that's all we have for you! There's a lot to look forward to if you're playing Diablo Immortal. If you're looking to get into the game or level a new character, check out our leveling guides for Barbarian, Monk, Wizard, Crusader, Demon Hunter and Necromancer.
