Blizzard is redesigning the legendary Diablo Immortal emblems to “help differentiate them” from the eternal legendary chests that cost players real money.
Replying to a post in the game subredditlead designer Wyatt Cheng said the team wanted to not only make sure the colors were different, but also change their shape, so “players know exactly what they’re getting when they make a purchase.”
“This is a piece of art that we are working on to help differentiate the Legendary Crest (which will become [the] The orange) of the Eternal Legendary Crest (which will remain the purple in the middle, which produces gems that can be sold on the market),” Cheng explained.
“We want to make sure players know exactly what they’re getting when they make a purchase, see it in inventory, and use it in the Elder Rift entry.”
“Players should be able to quickly tell the two apart not only by color but also by shape (for colorblind accessibility),” Cheng added (thanks, PCGN).
“We did some usability testing earlier this month to make sure they can be clearly understood during normal gameplay, such as when scaled down to small sizes or for new players. Also, we’re adding the Market icon to the Eternal Legendary item tooltip. Cresta to reinforce the difference”.
Cheng further confirmed that the new update will also usher in a change to Elder Rift’s input UI so that players “can choose which one they want to use (if they have both), as well as easily see how many of each they have since.” the entrance”. user interface”.
