New Feature: Season Journey
Each player approaches a new Season a little differently and we wanted to celebrate individual player successes. Beginning in Season 4, you'll be able to track your personal progress through the Season Journey interface.
A player's Season Journey is divided into chapters, each with their own descriptive goals and achievements. The further you advance in your Season Journey, the more difficult the milestones become and you'll find there are challenges for every level of player. Completing the highest level Tiers will unlock new portrait frame rewards to celebrate your accomplishments.
This feature will be available once Season 4 begins. To learn more about Season Journey, click here.
Sanctuary’s heroes and villains continue to invade the Nexus, and we’re celebrating their arrival with wondrous rewards you can earn by playing each game!
Immediately following the next Heroes patch, any player with a Diablo III license on their Battle.net account will receive the Diablo Hero in Heroes of the Storm for free. Simply log in to Heroes of the Storm to claim the Lord of Terror and start unleashing hell on your foes. Don’t wait though— this offer ends at 10:00 a.m. PDT on September 8!
The cross-universe rewards don’t end there. Diablo III players who reach level 12 in Heroes of the Storm will also receive a unique pennant and portrait frame in Diablo III for PC and Mac. In addition, reaching level 70 with a Seasonal Hero in Season 4 and beyond gives you the shadowy Malthael’s Phantom mount in Heroes of the Storm!
All of these goodies can be yours, nephalem—but are you brave enough to take on both Sanctuary and the Nexus? There’s only one way to find out! We’ll see you in the Nextuary (see what we did there?).
Patch 2.3.0 is currently on the Public Test Realm, and there are a slew of new items are available to play with. Here’s your first look at some of the awesome new loot coming soon with the release of Patch 2.3.0!
We’ve added three new sets and updated two old ones! In Patch 2.3.0, you’ll be able to adorn your Crusader in the Seeker of the Light set, and unleash limitless Blessed Hammers upon your enemies after descending upon them with Falling Sword. The gods strike through your Monk’s Seven Sided Strike with Uliana’s Stratagem while turning your enemies into living weapons with Exploding Palm. The Spirit of Arachyr will let your Witch Doctor unleash the frightening potential of Hex and Corpse Spiders as they ensnare and poison those who stand before you.
Some of the older sets have been updated as well! For instance, you can revisit the Witch Doctor’s Helltooth Harness set to subjugate your foes with debilitating necrosis, or wield the unbridled power of Archon when your Wizard dons Vyr’s Amazing Arcana.
Patch 2.3.0 will also have new and updated Legendary items to help slay your enemies with brutal precision. Here is but a taste of what’s to come!
Last, but not least, join us in Season 4 to find exclusive Seasonal Legendary items! We’ve got a handful incoming, including (but not limited to) one item for each class as well as a new Legendary Gem.
These items and more are on their way in Patch 2.3.0, but you can test them right now by joining us on the PTR!
Patch 2.3.0 is headed your way soon, loaded with cool new features for Diablo III. Among all the excitement over what’s ahead for the game, we’ve seen many players ask important questions about what they should expect in Season 4, which we’ll be addressing in the following guide.
As before, those who play in Season 4 will have access to Season-exclusive Legendary items, cosmetic rewards and transmogrification effects. We’ll highlight these below, plus the GLOOOORIOUS new Season Journey interface. Ready or not, it’s time to see what’s in store for you in Season 4!
Your journey through Sanctuary is unique, nephalem. In order to better celebrate your accomplishments, as well as guide newcomers through Sanctuary and help players compare their progress from one Season to the next, we’ve added the Season Journey.
This helpful tool is easily found on the main menu screen in Patch 2.3.0 when a Seasonal hero is selected, and helps you track and plan your Season progress easily. Upon opening the interface, you’ll find the game’s challenges categorized into Chapters and Tiers separated by degrees of difficulty.
Chapters include challenges designed to be within reach of most players, and should you finish all of them in Season 4, you’ll be awarded a brand new cosmetic pet and portrait. Meanwhile, Tiers represent a true test of your mettle, and grant you exclusive portrait frames upon completion, perfect for showcasing your Seasonal accomplishments.
Season 4 also brings exciting new Season-exclusive Legendary items for you to enjoy. These include the Legendary Gem, Bane of the Stricken, along with class-specific items like Dishonored Legacy and Sacred Harness. We won’t spoil the surprise of finding them all, but we’ve included a few of these below, including the purr-fectly crafted new Witch Doctor mojo—Henri’s Perquisition.
Conquests have returned in Season 4, and include a mix of challenges both updated and new. Among these are On A Good Day / I Can’t Stop and Boss Mode / Worlds Apart, both of which now reflect the brand-new Torment X difficulty. We’ve also upped the ante on Divinity / Lionhearted, which are achieved when you reach solo Greater Rift 60. Finally, for the true theorycrafters among you, we’ve added the intriguing new challenge The Thrill / Superhuman, which requires you to reach Greater Rift 40 without benefiting from Class Set item bonuses. As with Conquests in past Seasons, you’ll be able to see how well you completed these epic feats compared with other players on the Leaderboards.
If you’ve somehow managed to chew through these and find yourself hungry for even more challenges, we’ve also added several Achievements requiring you to complete certain objectives when facing bosses. Can you kill The Savage Behemoth and The Undying One within 5 seconds of each other in the Realm of Turmoil? Now, you’ll be able to prove it!
For those who missed out on the Conqueror’s transmogrification set from past Seasons, you’ll have a shot at obtaining a few pieces once more. The head and shoulder parts from this set will be available in Season 4 to those who reach level 70 with at least one Seasonal hero.
Q: When does Season 4 start?
A: Season 4 begins August 28 at 5 p.m. PDT in North America, 5 p.m. CEST in Europe, and 5 p.m. KST in Asia.
Q: How long will Season 4 last?
A: While we don’t have a specific timeframe to share for Season 4, we anticipate that it will be at least three months long.
Q: When are the Leaderboards being wiped for Season 3?
A: Leaderboards will be cleared once the Season comes to a close. Though the leaderboards are eventually cleared, they will be preserved both in-game and here on our website if you wish to review your Season 3 accomplishments.
Q: When are the non-Seasonal Leaderboards being wiped?
A: Non-Seasonal Leaderboards are tied to what we call “Eras.” We currently anticipate the next wipe to coincide with the transition to Season 4, although this may not be the case for future Seasons.
Q: Will Seasons be coming to console?
A: Some features on console are best designed for that platform, and the same is true for the PC version of the game. A large part of the fun of Seasons is the entire community rerolling heroes together at the same time. Because the offline and disconnected nature of console does not support this style of play, we do not currently have plans to implement Seasons on console.
There’s so much to look forward to in Season 4, and we can’t wait to see what you’ll achieve. With brand new Set items and Kanai’s Cube to shake up the game, this may be our best Season yet!
