Diablo 4 Uber Uniques Disabled

Blizzard has temporarily disabled the ultra-rare Unique items, aka "uber uniques" in Diablo 4 following an issue with Helltide chests.

The Uber Unique items in Diablo 4 are so rare that the developers had to confirm they actually exist in the game a couple of weeks after its launch. Even if you play for hundreds of hours, you might never see one drop. On 7 July 2023, however, no person will see an Uber Unique drop in Diablo 4, as they have been disabled.

On 7 July 2023, Blizzard's Community Manager, Adam "PezRadar" Fletcher, retweeted a public service announcement from Blizzard's customer service Twitter account, stating that the Uber Uniques in Diablo 4 have been disabled.

Update on 12 July 2023: Blizzard has re-enabled uber Unique drops and those who got a Shako from the Helltide rush can keep it...

To be clear, this is Uber Unique drops, so if you are one of the lucky few to actually have one of these ultra-rare items, then they will still work. PezRadar explains:

We have temporarily disabled Uber Uniques from dropping in-game while we address an issue with Helltide Chest drops. Players will not be able to obtain the 6 Uber Unique items until a hotfix which we expect to be implemented on Friday afternoon Pacific Time. Other unique items will still be available from these chests.

This follows the release of the Diablo 4 1.04 update's release, which fixed many bugs and issues. The update also made it possible for Helltide chests to drop Unique items, as they previously dropped only up to Legendary equipment.

Hopefully, by 8 July 2023, the Uber Unique item drops will return in Diablo 4, so we can all chase them.

What Are The Diablo 4 Uber Uniques?

The Uber Uniques in Diablo 4 include iconic items that are, without a doubt, best-in-slot for most classes and builds, including The Grandfather and Shako (Harlequin Crest)!

For those who are unaware, the uber Uniques in Diablo 4 are:

  • The Grandfather (2H Sword)
  • Doombringer (1H Sword)
  • Ring of Starless Skies (Ring)
  • Andariel's Visage (Helm)
  • Harlequin Crest (Helm) aka Shako for D2 fans!
  • Melted Heart of Selig (Amulet)

These items are so rare that you could spend hundreds of hours farming endgame content without seeing one drop.

So there you have it, Uber Uniques are disabled until the afternoon of 7 July 2023 Pacific Time. We will endeavor to update this article once they return.
