Diablo 2 Resurrected: Update 2.5 with Ranked Season 2, Terror Zones and more

How Diablo 2: Resurrected's new Breakthrough spells work (1)

from Susan Brown
Fans of the revamped ARPG classic Diablo 2 Resurrected have every reason to celebrate, as Update 2.5 has recently been released, bringing the start of Ranked Season 2 with Breakthrough spells on October 7th, 2022. Also, Sanctuary now has Terror Zones! With us you will find out the details!

We don’t want to keep you long! Instead, we’ll just tell you that Diablo 2 Resurrected Update 2.5 is live on the servers and the spooky terror zones brought with it. If you’re playing with Terror Zones active, fiendish tremors full of the Lord of Destruction’s steadfast corruption roll into specific zones every hour, encouraging and terrorizing the monsters. The monsters in these zones are at least two levels higher than your current level or their original level, up to a certain maximum depending on the difficulty level. The experience and loot gained from killing terrorized monsters is based on this new tier. Terror Zones are unlocked for heroes who have defeated Baal on every difficulty level.

Here are the details of the levels of each monster type according to difficulty. For more information on the zones that can be terrorized, visit the Official Diablo 2 Resurrected website – and by the way also the complete and quite extensive patch notes.


  • Base: +2 levels, up to level 45
  • Champion: +4 levels, up to level 47
  • Unique: +5 levels, up to level 48


  • Base: +2 levels, up to level 71
  • Champion: +4 levels, up to level 73
  • Unique: +5 levels, up to level 74


  • Base: +2 levels, up to level 96
  • Champion: +4 levels, up to level 98
