- Fans of Diablo Immortal have discovered a new orange Emblem graphic in the game files.
- The chief designer explained that the orange color will replace the Legendary Emblem.
- This will make life easier for players, as the above item looked identical to the Eternal Legendary Emblem (which differs in that it can be resold).
Diablo Immortal players have noticed, that the game files contain an image of a new Emblem. It had a different shape and color (orange) from the Emblems already in the game. They began to speculate whether this meant the introduction of entirely new gems or minor gameplay changes. With answers came the lead designer of Diablo Immortal, who clarified the matter.
You won't mistake them now
Emblems are items that can be used in Ancient Rifts. They vary in rarity; so far there are three types in the game: Rare, Legendary and Eternal Legendary Emblem. The last two are not difficult to confuse with each other - they literally look the same. Although they don't differ in what they provide (including one Legendary Gem), the problem arises when you want to sell the items gained with these modifiers. If playing with even one Ordinary Legendary Emblem, we will not be able to get rich. Using Emblems can therefore be problematic for players, even more so if they set out to gather money.
And this is where the recently discovered image comes in. As stated by wyattcheng (chief designer), this is not a completely new item. The Orange Emblem will simply replace the Legendary one, so that it can be more easily distinguished from the Eternal Legendary Emblem. According to the chief designer, the developers are doing this so:
"(...) the players know exactly what they were buying and using before entering Ancient Rifts."
Emblems are to vary in shape to also make them easier to recognize for color-blind players. In addition, the interface for entering the Ancient Rifts is to be changed in the update. And that's it, no gameplay changes or new mechanics related to the orange Emblem.
All changes are very much useful for Diablo Immortal players. However, we do not know when they will be implemented in the game. So for a while yet the players will have to agonize over the confusing appearance of Emblems.
