Blizzard applying some major changes to Diablo 4 based on feedback from the betas
Blizzard has implemented a variety of fixes, and updates, to Diablo 4 since the beta weekends were held.
The studio said the changes were made due to reviewing player feedback and gameplay data. The changes made will be present in the release version of the game.

One of these changes pertains to cellars, which will now consistently reward a chest upon completion, and the chance for a dungeon Event to occur has increased from 10% to 60%.
With characters, all classes have received adjustments to various skills, and all now have access to crowd control-breaking skills with appropriate cooldowns.
Multiple dungeons have been optimized across all zones to minimize the need for backtracking, and Dungeon Events now have an increased chance to spawn.
Bosses such as T’chort, Malnok, Vhenard, and others were re-evaluated for melee character difficulty, resulting in changes to attacks and fight mechanics. The Butcher was also re-evaluated and will present more of a challenge in World Tiers 3 and 4.
Several quality-of-life fixes were implemented, and various issues were fixed regarding UI. This includes the chat now displaying on the left side of the screen and the Sans Serif font being replaced with a new Serif font.
