But fear not, for these twisted realms have opened up opportunities to explore Visions of Enmity. Venture into pocket dimensions through Diabolical Fissures and witness the havoc unfold firsthand!

Demons beware! Nephalem of Level 1 and beyond have a shot at stumbling upon a Diabolical Fissure while battling evil in the open world. But that's just the beginning.

New Monster Affixes

Season 29 diabolical fissure

Attention, Nephalem! Brace yourselves for new devilish powers in the Visions. The Burning Hells have granted monsters deadly Affixes to make your encounters more treacherous. Check out these game-changers, exclusive to Visions of Enmity.
• Enervating: Get ready for a speed slam! Monsters will create an area that slows your movement by a whopping 65% and puts your Cooldown Reduction on hold by 50% if you're too close.
• Necrotic: Healing just got harder. Your natural rejuvenation is reduced by 65%. On top of that, monsters inflict damage-over-time that sucks away a hefty 180% of your max health over a grueling 30 seconds. But fear not! If you manage to heal beyond 95%, the tormenting effect will vanish.

Introducing the Paragon Ceiling: Power Up Your Solo Self Found Adventure!

Are you ready to take your solo Self Found character to the next level? We've got a game-changing update for you! Starting with Season 29, we're introducing Paragon Points that work hand in hand with Solo Self Found and our exciting new theme.

Before, you were limited to assigning a measly 50 Paragon Points to each attribute in the Core, Defense, Offense, and Utility categories. But now, get ready to unleash your full potential with a whopping 200 Paragon Points in each attribute! That's a total of 800 Paragon Points for your solo Self Found character!

But wait, there's more! This exclusive change is not just limited to Season 29. It applies to all modes, so you can experience the thrill of maximum power across all aspects of the game.

Get ready to break through the Paragon Ceiling and conquer the game like never before. Power awaits, are you up for the challenge?

Season 29 Paragon Ceiling

Paragon used to reign supreme in terms of character power, but this Season brings a shift in focus. The developers have decided to move away from relying solely on Main Stat grinding and instead emphasize gameplay knowledge and gear hunting. To kick things off, they have set the initial starting point at 800.

Firstly, Movement Speed has been adjusted to 0.125% per point. Why? Because the old value would have given players a whopping 100% Movement Speed, which was just too much. Now, players have the freedom to invest points into this stat and go beyond the 25% Movement Speed limit from item bonuses.

And don't worry, Area Damage is still going to perform just as well, if not better, with some substantial performance improvements. So get ready to dive into a new era of character power and master the art of the hunt!

Community-Led Changes

When it comes to Diablo III, the community's voice is like gold. That's why the developers have been all ears, listening to your feedback and making the game even better. Now, in Patch 2.7.6 PTR, your most requested quality-of-life improvements are coming to life! Get ready to enjoy these game-changing updates. You asked, and we delivered!
Orek’s Dream
Orek's Dream gets a makeover! Say goodbye to the Dark Berserker and Toxic Lurker and say hello to the new and improved Hellions, Vile Swarm, and Savage Beast. It's a monster set shake-up you don't want to miss!
Monks now have a fancy buff icon when the legendary item Flying Dragon activates. Say goodbye to the frustration of randomly resetting Flurry stacks while using Tempest Rush – just keep your mouse beneath your character!
Necromancer's dark magic has undergone a wicked upgrade. Haunted Visions can now banish Skeletal Mages without the need for Grim Scythe on the action bar. And say goodbye to excessive Essence! Requiem Cereplate has been recalibrated to give you just the right amount. No more overflowing with excess power.

More Exciting Updates in Diablo!

• Developers decided to remove Mastermind from the Champion portion of the seasonal journey. No longer need to master a Set Dungeon! We've replaced it with a new challenge called Overcoming the Trials. Get ready to complete an Echoing Nightmare and show off your skills.
• Hamelin's unique death animation was causing some reward credit issues. But fear not! We've fixed it. Now, the player closest to Hamelin when he bites the dust will receive the kill credit.
• Watch out for those sneaky Corrupted Angels! They were dishing out double damage with no warning. But not anymore. We've adjusted their moves to deal the same damage as their regular attacks.
• Exciting news for Greater Rift explorers! We've added checkpoints to Battlefields and Boneyards. Now you can rest and regroup on your epic journey.
• Say goodbye to Corvus, Ice Caves, and Spider Caves in Greater Rifts. They won't be coming around anymore. It's time for new challenges and adventures!

    Calling all Witch Doctors:

diablo 4 barbarian build table

Save your Rallying Cry for when you need to break free from crowd control. And don't forget to use your Ultimate skill and keep Whirlwinding!

Now, you might be thinking, why is this called the Whirlwind Barbarian build when it seems to be more focused on shouting? Well, that's because Whirlwind is the secret weapon that solves the problem of being bombarded by too many monsters.

The main objective of this build is to use Rallying Cry, Challenging Shout, and War Cry to fuel your essential needs like generating Fury, dealing increased damage, boosting your survivability, and pulling enemies into the path of your devastating Whirlwind attacks. Carefully chosen talents also ensure that Whirlwind generates the necessary Fury when battling large groups, while abilities like Violent Whirlwind and Pressure Point increase its damage even more.

This build is designed to consume Fury at an alarming rate while also generating even more, activating powerful boons and debuffs on enemies. Utilize your shouts as soon as they're available, but if you're playing on Hardcore mode, it's crucial to save Rallying Cry as a lifeline to break free from sudden stuns or freezes. Once you have everything set up, the goal is to keep using Whirlwind uninterrupted for as long as possible, stacking up more and more bonuses. Preventing any breaks in combat will drastically increase your damage per second, so prioritize identifying and fixing any gaps in your rotation.

Best Whirlwind Barbarian Weapon Mastery

Since Whirlwind is your primary source of damage, grab a badass two-handed mace or axe. Splurge on some Obols for a legendary weapon whenever possible. And don't forget to show off your expertise by activating the skill of the weapon type you're not using - spin like a ballerina and dominate in Diablo 4. It's the perfect combo for ultimate destruction.

What is the Power of the Whirlwind Barbarian with the Ultimate Gem Lineup?

Skulls, Emeralds, Diamonds. While the core build already packs a punch, the best gems for this barbarian build are the mighty Skulls. These gems won't boost your damage, but they will keep you alive in the heat of battle. After all, you can't keep spinning if you're pushing up daisies. Load up your armour with Skulls, let Diamonds handle resistances in your jewellery, and add those stunning emeralds to your weapons to stack up Critical Damage. Get ready to wreak havoc like never before!

Experience the Best Whirlwind Barbarian Aspects

Essential: Unleash the power of the Dire Whirlwind
Tap into the Ancestral Echoes with Call of the Ancients
Recommended: Embrace the Echoing Fury, Harness Limitless Rage, Go Berserk
Discover the perfect combination of Diablo 4 Aspects and Codex of Power benefits for your Whirlwind Barbarian build. The Aspect of the Dire Whirlwind emphasizes the importance of a focused, uninterrupted skill. And remember, legendary and unique items will always enhance your skills more than those found in dungeons. Don't miss the opportunity to upgrade your arsenal.

Best Whirlwind Barbarian Nodes, Glyphs, and Stats

• Gear Makes or Breaks the Build – So Don't Stop Until You've Got it All!
• This build is off-the-charts fun. Practice more to use it as a levelling build.
• Master it like a pro and level up in no time.

season ending header image with season characters

Diablo 3 Season 28 Rites of Sanctuary is the epic era reaching its climax! Time to say goodbye to the mind-blowing Altar of Rites. Brace yourself because Season 28 will bid us farewell on Sunday, September 10, 2023.
Unlike the newer Diablo titles, D3‘s regional server configuration means individual start and end times by region. Below are the times when Season 28 will end for each region:
North America – September 10 at 5pm PDT
Europe – September 10 at 5pm CEST
Asia – September 10 at 5pm KST

Previous seasons had a consistent duration, averaging 12.5 weeks. But in Season 21, things changed as teams started working from home, leading to longer seasons. The norm became an average of 18 weeks. Then came Season 27, breaking the cycle with a massive six-month runtime. This served as a preparation for the Diablo 3 developers time for Diablo 4. An end date of September 10 lands at a new record for longest Diablo 3 Season with a projected run time of 28 weeks.

Are you ready for the grand finale of Diablo 3 Season 28?  Diablo 4 might be on the horizon, but we're not leaving you hanging just yet. Find out why a Season 29 seemed impossible and why the world can't wait for Lilith's triumphant return.

Attention all Diablo fans: Get ready to be blown away by the most epic season of Diablo 3 yet! Step into a world of devilish thrills as a thrilling new chapter unfolds before your eyes.

Blizzard drops a bomb: Diablo 3 Season 28 theme was Rites of Sanctuary which is likely to end with Season 29.  Diablo 3 Season 29 is the grand finale before Diablo 4 takes centre stage. Prepare yourself for the end of an era, but also the beginning of a diabolical new chapter!

Time to go on a nostalgic rollercoaster! The creative geniuses behind the game have decided to bring back the best of the best from past seasons. Get ready to relive epic moments, don coveted cosmetics, and dive into beloved themes. Diablo 3 fans may shed a tear, but fear not, newbies: you'll finally get a taste of what you have been missing.

Ah, the allure of wealth leads us to make foolish choices, but mining is a lucrative endeavor. Our quest for ancient Nephalem artifacts compels us to venture into a tangled mess of decaying foliage and crumbling flora. We tirelessly chip away at stone after stone until my trusty tool strikes the rock with a resounding thunk, unleashing a foul gas. Together, we uncover the largest artifact we've ever laid eyes on - a foreboding altar. As we commence our investigation, a faint whisper seeps into my thoughts, not from a single voice, but from a collective. Their identity remains unknown, but one thing is certain - we must share our discovery with the world. We embark on the arduous journey back to New Tristram, with our prized find in tow. Several days pass, as curious townsfolk come and go, marveling at the Altar. Then, the Nephalem arrive, demanding to witness the mysterious structure for themselves...

But here's the twist - break things! Go wild and experiment, just make sure to let us know when you encounter any issues so we can ensure a smooth launch for the patch.

Introducing Solo Self Found: A Demonic Journey of One

Calling all demon slayers! If you're ready to take your quest through Sanctuary to the next level, then it's time to try out the exhilarating Solo Self Found mode. This mode throws you into the fiery depths of Hell with only yourself to rely on. That's right, it's a single player experience like no other. And for those seeking an even greater challenge, we've got a Hardcore version just for you.

After years of players clamouring for an officially supported single player mode.  Solo Self Found is your answer to the demand. Say goodbye to experience bonuses from parties and teammates watching your back. This mode will truly test your mettle as you face off against demonic legions. To honour the achievements of those brave enough to venture into this mode, Leaderboards dedicated to Solo Self Found. These Leaderboards work just like the ones in other game modes.

Creating a character in Solo Self Found is easy. Simply select the Solo Hero option in the character creation screen. You'll still have access to the Campaign and Adventure Mode, just like in other modes. However, multiplayer options will be off-limits. Challenge Rifts can be completed with a party during seasonal play, but Solo Self Found is all about the solitary journey. You won't be able to start this mode while in a party or engage in multiplayer activities such as trading. Don't worry though, re-birthing is still available for Solo Self Found characters.

The Visions of Enmity theme in Season 29, along with Patch 2.7.6, were specially designed with Solo Self Found in mind. We encourage you to give it a try and let everyone know what you think. So, grab your weapon, prepare for battle, and embark on a solo adventure like no other in Diablo III.

But it doesn't stop there.  Instead of being restricted to 50 points per attribute, you can now assign up to 200 points to each attribute in the Core, Defense, Offense, and Utility categories. That's 200 points of pure power in every aspect of your character!

All these changes been made to shift the focus from mindless grinding to strategic game play and hunting for the best gear. It's time to put your knowledge and skills to the test, rather than relying solely on stats.

Speaking of stats, let's talk about the changes within the Paragon system. Movement Speed has been adjusted to a staggering 0.125% per point. This means you can go beyond the previous limit of 25% Movement Speed from item bonuses. Prepare to blaze through levels like never before!

And don't worry, Area Damage is still a force to be reckoned with. In fact, it's even better now. There are some substantial improvements to its performance, so get ready to obliterate anything in your path.

Unleash the Power of Akkhan's Leniency!

With each enemy struck by your Blessed Shield, watch in amazement as the damage of your Blessed Shield increases by a massive 35-40% for a glorious 6 seconds. And guess what? This incredible damage boost can stack up to an impressive 100 times! No punier individual stacks here.

Ride in Style with the Vigilante Belt!

While mounted on your majestic war horse, Fist of the Heavens packs an even mightier punch. The damage of your Fist of the Heavens skill is now linked to your movement speed, resulting in devastating attacks. Oh, and did we mention that this lightning strike of justice will also strike a random enemy nearby at regular intervals based on your attack speed? Ride on, champion!

Unleash the Momentum of Gears of Dreadlands!

Prepare for a whirlwind of power with the Gears of Dreadlands set. Whenever you unleash a Primary skill, you gain a glorious 4 seconds of Momentum. This Momentum can reach a maximum duration of 20 seconds and each second of Momentum boosts your Primary skills' damage by a solid 10%. But watch the clock, because the duration starts counting down with a slight delay of 5 seconds after each application. Get ready to deal some serious damage!

Witness the Explosive Power of Cluckeye!

Prepare for a poultry explosion like no other. When you cast Hex - Angry Chicken, all of your critters transform into explosive chickens! These feathery fiends will deal a staggering 150-200% increased damage, and Angry Chicken itself will inflict 50% more damage for each chicken that goes boom. Get ready to ruffle some feathers!

Embark on the Manajuma's Way to Victory!

Experience the true might of Hex - Angry Chicken with the Manajuma's Way set. The explosion damage of your Hex - Angry Chicken is amplified by a jaw-dropping 2000%, leaving a trail of destruction in your wake. But that's not all - every slain enemy triggers an additional explosion, spreading chaos and devastation. With a duration of 15 seconds, enhanced movement speed, and a whopping 75% damage reduction (plus an extra 5 seconds of mayhem), you'll be unstoppable.

And just when you thought things couldn't get any crazier, prepare for the chicken invasion. As an angry chicken, you'll spawn a volatile chicken every half-second. These fearless fowl will seek out enemies and inflict 100% of your Angry Chicken explosion damage. Let the poultry madness begin!

Bug Squashing Time!
