When you load up the Abattoir of Zir update in Diablo 4, you might notice that some of your Glyphs have lost levels in the Paragon tree. It seems bad at first, but it doesn’t seem intentional, and I’ll explain it all here.
Why are Glyphs Missing Levels in Diablo 4?
Any Glyphs that are missing levels or XP in the Abattoir of Zir update are bugged. This is not a change that was mentioned in the patch notes for the December 5 update, so we know that the lack of levels isn’t intentional. But I did check my own Glyphs to see if I was affected as well and my level 21 Blood-Drinker is at 19 instead.
On the Diablo 4 Reddit, Community Manager SinfulScribe already made a post addressing the issue. At the time of this writing, the post only serves to inform players that the developers are aware of the issue for levels and XP. However, there is no update on a fix for the issue or when players can expect the fix.
In my experience and from additional Reddit posts, the bug affects rare Glyphs that are at level 15 or above. If you have a level 15 Glyph, it could jump down to 14 and take away the radius increase needed on the board. For my own Diablo 4 Blood-Drinker, I went down two levels instead of one, but I kept the radius.
Considering the Tears of Blood Glyph added with the Abattoir of Zir just released on December 5, it’s a safe bet to assume that’s why some issues are popping up. The Zir Pinnacle Dungeon will offer far more Glyph XP for completion, so some changes were made.
In the meantime, prepare to enter the Abattoir of Zir while you wait for the Diablo 4 hotfix.
