On 21st September, the 15th Season of Diablo III starts. If there is anyone among you who is looking forward to a brand new start, we have decided to write a post detailing everything you need to know before you begin your journey. Each season comes with exciting additions and its very on Theme. So keep on reading to find out what those are!

season 15 main


Season 15 Theme

In the previous season, we introduced the seasonal buff as an experiment, and in Season 15 we'll continue with it, and it will run from start to end. This means you will get double for every Horadric Cache acquired through bounties in this new Season. That's right, you get two times the bounty in an Act each time you finish five bounties, which is a full set. This will give you not just one Horadric Caches, but two!

This effect comes with two things you need to take note of:

  • First of all, the difficulty level will benefit the bonus cache; it will be as though you have finished the bounties two times.
    • However, this will not affect the rewards contained in the Horadric Caches; it will not alter the number of individual rewards or drop rates.
  • Secondly, it does not affect any bonus cache acquired from completing Challenge Rifts; this form of cache is not like the others.

If you need to refresh your mind on what rewards are found in a Horadric Cache, read this Game Guide for further details. It contains all the details about the Bounty System and Legendary items exclusive to particular bounties.

To celebrate this season's theme, more celebrations might happen all over the globe, on top of of doubling the spoils of Horadric Caches.


Season 15 - New Cosmetic Rewards

As it was with past seasons, new cosmetic rewards will be available in Season 15 as well, which you can acquire as you play the Season Journey.

On top of giving the exclusive Conqueror Set new Glove and Chest slots, there will also be new portrait frames whose theme will be based on the struggle called the Eternal Conflict. We have also thought about helping out all excited cosmetic pet collectors. As you journey throughout the Sanctuary, having great adventures, Belphegor will be more than delighted to keep your coin for you!


Season 15 - Journey Rewards

If you have reached Conqueror every time in your Season Journey due to diligently vanquishing demons in previous seasons, you probably have some additional stash tabs at the moment. If you are one of the players who have yet to earn the four stash tabs that can be acquired in the Season Journey, you are in luck! Reach the Conqueror tier and complete the below-mentioned tasks:

  • If you have any Ancient Legendary item containing a gem that is level 50 or above, augment it with Kanai's Cube
  • 3 Legendary Gems must be leveled to 55
  • On Torment XIII difficulty, vanquish a level 70 Malthael in less than one and a half minutes
  • Conquests must be finished this Season
  • On Torment XIII difficulty, kill Greed
  • If you have any Legendary item, reforge it with Kanai's Cube
  • On Torment XIII difficulty, complete a Nephalem Rift of level 70 in less than five minutes
  • Advance through the Greater Rift and reach level 60 by yourself (solo play)

Season 15 - Seasonal Conquests

When it comes to Conquests, they will also be rotated this season! Coming back this new season is Sprinter/Speed, who will challenge you to finish Act 1-5 of the main campaign in Diablo III in less than one hour at level 70! Then there's Avaritia/Avarice, who will turn all that glitters into gold – only if you finish a 50 million gold streak in the Inner Sanctum of The Vault or its outside. Worlds Apart/Boss Mode is a special type of race, where you have 20 minutes on Torment X to beat all the Diablo III bosses at the maximum level. If you are a fan of unconventional builds, you can go on a solo mission and finish level 45 of the Greater Rift without equipping any Set items. Lastly, Masters of Sets/Masters of the Universe will require you to complete eight separate Set Dungeons at Mastery Rank for your class set knowledge to be stretched; it's time to double down on being a collector!


Season 15 - Haedrig's Gift

When you finish some specific chapter throughout the Season Journey, the Class Sets in those chapters will be rotated because of Haedrig's Gift. You can see the list of Sets that are available below. And if there's anyone who doesn't know how it works, here's the rundown:

You will be awarded 3 Haedrig's Gifts when you finish chapters II, III and IV in the Season Journey. Some pieces from a single Class Set you own will be included in every gift. This is the only way you can earn a Class Set using this method every Season across Non-Hardcore and Hardcore, meaning you must select the Gifts wisely!

When a Haedrig's Gift is opened, the set you will earn will be determined by your selected character's Class. Using the same character to open all Gifts will give you the entire Class Set.

For the 15th Season, here is a list of available sets:

  • Crusader - Roland's Legacy
  • Monk - Raiment of a Thousand Storms
  • Barbarian - Wrath of the Wastes
  • Witch Doctor - Helltooth Harness
  • Necromancer - Bones of Rathma
  • Wizard - Tal Rasha's Elements
  • Demon Hunter - Unhallowed Essence

FAQs

When does the 15th Season begin?

Although it depends on time zones, the 15th Season starts on 21st September on a Friday @ 5pm in North America (PDT), Europe (CEST) and Asia (KST).

When should Playstation 4 and Xbox One players expect the Season to Start?

If you are a console player, you can expect the Season to begin @ 5pm Pacific Time worldwide; it doesn't matter what region you're playing the game in. Since the PlayStation 4 and Xbox are different hardware platforms, please note that each of them will have separate Leaderboards.

When is the 15th Season coming to an end?

Currently, our estimates indicate that the 15th Season will come to an end on 16th December on a Sunday in North America (PDT), Europe (CEST) and Asia (KST).

Why is the conclusion date of the 15th Season only an estimate?

In the past, we have always sent notifications to our players two weeks before the Season is set to end. But after hearing feedback from the community, we have decided to use the Season First Look blogs to provide players with detailed Seasonal information from now onwards. Also, keep in mind that since the date is just an estimate, it is subject to change at any moment. Though we will continue to notify players two weeks prior to the Season's end, we will do everything we can to hit the date as provided in this post.

When are you erasing the non-Seasonal Leaderboards?

We have connected non-Seasonal Leaderboards to something known as “Eras,” which take place between six and 12 months. The Era we are in now started on 9th November.

Where do the previous Era and Seasonal records go?

Personal bests earned from Season 1 have been deleted since Season 1. Personal bests achieved from Season 6 and onwards will be deleted starting from Season 15. When the next Era begins, we will also delete personal bests from the Era prior to that one.

What happens to past Seasonal Leaderboard records?

Seasonal Leaderboard records are not being cleared and will remain archived both in game and on our website.


The 15th Season is around the corner! Do you have any goals in mind? How do you like our new Seasonal theme? Will the fact that you can acquire more exclusive bounty Legendaries, recipes and Kanai's Cube crafting materials affect the way you approach this new Season?

We are more than delighted to hear from you. Drop your comments in the section below!

Season 14 Ending Soon

Here we are again, nephalem. As we prepare to close out another Season in Diablo III, it's time to take a moment to remember what you have achieved and ensure that you're ready for the next.

If you haven't experienced the end of a Season, there's a lot to know about what happens to your gear, your progress, and your characters. Don't fret! We're here to give you a full overview of what to expect when the current Season ends and the next one begins.

Table of Contents:


The Season Rollover

If you've played through a Season before, you know that all the gold, gear, and Paragon experience you earned don't just disappear. But what exactly happens to all that hard-earned progress when a Season ends? The short answer is that you get to keep just about all of it.

Here's a list of all the rewards from this Season you can expect your non-Seasonal heroes to enjoy:

Heroes

  • Seasonal heroes will be converted to either non-Seasonal Normal or Hardcore mode heroes, as appropriate. There's no need to delete any characters to make room for them; your Seasonal heroes will continue to use the same slot they currently occupy in your roster after the rollover. You’ll also be able to use Season Rebirth to convert any non-seasonal character into a Seasonal level 1 character once the next Season begins.

Gold

  • Any gold you earn during the Season will transfer to your non-Seasonal heroes.

Paragon Experience

  • The total amount of Paragon experience earned is the amount that rolls over, but not the raw total Paragon levels that you gained.
  • For example, if your Seasonal heroes reached Paragon 300, and your current non-Seasonal heroes are already Paragon 400, your new non-Seasonal Paragon level will still be less than Paragon 700, since Paragon levels require more experience to earn the higher you go.

Blood Shards

  • Much like how it works with gold, any Blood Shards you have available at the end of the Season will transfer to your non-Seasonal heroes.
  • If your non-Seasonal heroes are currently at the Blood Shard cap, any Blood Shards you earn once the Season ends will temporarily ignore the cap. You can spend these at your leisure; however, you can’t pick up any additional Blood Shards until you are below the current cap.

Items

  • Items that are currently equipped on a hero or in that hero's inventory will stay on that hero as it moves to a non-Seasonal game mode.
  • Items that are in your Seasonal stash will be sent through the in-game mail system to your non-Seasonal heroes. These items can be claimed by any non-Seasonal hero up to 30 days from the time you first log in after the Season ends. To access these items on PC, enter a game and hit the Mail icon located in the lower left corner of your screen to open your inbox. Console players can do the same by visiting the mailbox found in any town hub.
  • If you’ve unlocked Primal Ancient items by completing Greater Rift 70 on a Seasonal hero, you’ll also be able to obtain them on non-Seasonal heroes after the Season ends (if you have not previously unlocked them for non-Seasonal heroes). 

Artisan Progress and Recipes

  • If your Seasonal Artisans are a higher level than your non-Seasonal Artisans at the end of the Season, their level will transfer to your non-Seasonal Artisans.
  • Any recipes you have on your Seasonal Artisans that are not available to your non-Seasonal Artisans will be transferred as well.

Shared Stash

  • Any Shared Stash slots or tabs you purchase during a Season that are not currently available to your non-Seasonal heroes will be transferred accordingly.

Achievements

  • Any achievements earned or achievement progress made during the Season are automatically applied to your non-Seasonal achievement profile. This happens in real time and does not require the Season to end first. Your achievement point total is also updated appropriately throughout the Season.

Kanai's Cube

  • After the Season rollover, any Legendary Powers unlocked using Kanai’s Cube on a Seasonal Character will become available on non-Seasonal characters as appropriate.
  • At the start of a new Season, Seasonal characters will not have access to any Kanai’s Cube Legendary Powers unlocked during previous Seasonal or non-Seasonal play.

Season 14 Rewards

  • All players who reach level 70 on a hero in Season 13 will unlock exclusive transmogrification appearances for legs and boots. These appearances will unlock immediately upon hitting level 70 on a Seasonal hero, and will be available on Seasonal and non-Seasonal heroes alike (even before the Season concludes). To access your new appearances, simply visit Myriam the Mystic and open the Transmogrification tab.
  • Players can also earn portrait frames and an exclusive cosmetic pennant for completing various chapters of the Season Journey.

Note: All heroes, rewards, and progress will convert to the appropriate non-Seasonal game mode. Any items, gold, Paragon experience, achievements, Artisan levels or recipes, Stash space, and Blood Shards earned on Normal Seasonal heroes will transfer to your Normal non-Seasonal heroes when the Season is over. Similarly, anything you’ve earned on Hardcore Seasonal heroes will transfer to your Hardcore non-Season heroes instead. 


Season 14 Conquests

Unlike other rewards, Conquests do not roll over at the end of the Season (because they aren’t available to non-Seasonal heroes). This also means that your non-Seasonal Achievement point total will not be affected by any Conquests you earn during a Season.


Season 14 Leaderboards

Once the Season ends, all Seasonal Leaderboards will be wiped and you’ll be unable to attain new Leaderboard ranks until the next Season begins. The results of the previous Season’s Leaderboards will remain available for viewing in-game for PC players. Once the new Season begins, PC players can view a handy dropdown menu to compare current and previous Season records. Similarly, console players will be able to view their rank for the previous Season.

PC players can also view current and past Leaderboards on our website.

In addition, the non-Seasonal Greater Rift Leaderboards on PC will be wiped sometime after the end of the Season. However, players on this platform can immediately compete in the currently active Era with their non-Seasonal heroes (including those who have just rolled over), and will not have to wait for the start of the next Season. 


Season 14 End & Season 15 Start Dates

You can sort through your Seasonal rewards and review your progress on the Leaderboards between Seasons. It’s a great time to reflect on the accomplishments you’ve made and enjoy the fruits of your pre- and post-Season loot hunts!

Season 14 will end on the following dates:

  • North America: Sunday, September 16 @ 5:00 p.m. PDT 
  • Europe: Sunday, September 16 @ 5:00 p.m. CEST
  • Asia: Sunday, September 16 @ 5:00 p.m. KST

Season 15 will begin shortly after on the dates below:

  • North America: Friday, September 21 @ 5:00 p.m. PDT 
  • Europe: Friday, September 21 @ 5:00 p.m. CEST
  • Asia: Friday, September 21 @ 5:00 p.m. KST

Season 15 will begin for all console players on Friday, September 21 @ 5:00 p.m. PDT, regardless of which regional version of the game you may have. Please note that Seasonal Leaderboards for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are still separated by hardware platform.

For time zone assistance, check out this handy guide. More information about Season 15’s theme and exclusive rewards will be available shortly; stay tuned for our preview blog. We look forward to seeing you in Season 15!
