Blizzard Entertainment launched a day one hotfix for Diablo 4 that’s already nerfed the Rogue and Sorcerer classes.

As such, the crew at Blizzard is already rolling out fixes for the role-playing title, complete with adjustments targeting specific classes, items, and more.

Players who plan on sinking their time into the Rogue or Sorcerer classes will especially want to read through the patch notes for Hotfix 1.0.2

Diablo 4 patch notes: Rogue & Sorcerer already nerfed

On June 2, Blizzard deployed a server-side hotfix for the newest Diablo title. Changes to the skills assigned to Diablo 4’s Rogue and Sorcerer classes serve as the hotfix’s key points of interest.

The full patch notes for Hotfix 1.0.2 read as follows:

Sorcerer – Class Specialization

  • Flame Shield Enchantment
    • When Flame Shield is initially equipped into an Enchantment slot, it’s placed on full cooldown.

Rogue – Class Specialization

  • Inner Sight
    • After Inner Sight’s unlimited Energy expires, there will be a 4-second delay before another enemy becomes marked.


  • Shout Skill Cooldown Reduction
    • This affix will no longer appear on items.


  • Monster health values have been increased in later World Tiers.

That the Rogue and Sorcerer classes have been nerfed isn’t the only noteworthy change in Diablo 4’s patch notes.

Increased enemy health values indicate the endgame will be tougher compared to its pre-patch state. Some players may have bigger fish to fry, however, given that a few server issues have cropped up here and there.
