Site lore

On the outskirts of Tristram, beside a dilapidated wooden fence, a glint of light caught a boy's eye. The object, concealed under the earth for millennia, had been propelled to the surface by an unknown force -- to answer the call of a calamitous time. It was... the Mythic Drop.

Site mission

Mythic Drop (mythicdrop.com) is a Diablo 4 fansite that aims to be:

  • Accurate
  • Fast
  • Fresh
  • Pertinent
  • Succinct

Site history

mythicdrop.com launched in February 2022. It featured content on all known Diablo 4 topics and items at the time, and later added a section on popular streamer profiles.

The genesis of the site began in late 2019, after Blizzard's big reveal of the game at BlizzCon 2019. Then, the most powerful tier of items was Mythic; thus, the name: Mythic Drop. A year later, Blizzard would go on to replace this tier with Unique, but "Mythic Drop" sounds a lot cooler than "Unique Drop," and the name is an interesting artifact of Diablo 4's development history.
