Diablo 3 PTR 2.7.2 Preview

The new patch is almost here! Get ready to battle the invading forces of darkness with the latest update! The Two-Week PTR Testing Period begins on November 4th. Be sure not miss out by looking at what's coming up.  What to expect: Soul Shard System updates with a focus on item balance; bug fixes galore in an assortment of different categories including Seasons, Items, How to Participate in PTR and Character Copy.

PTR Focus & Details

During this time there may be periodic maintenances and patch updates so make sure you're current on all your software updates before going in-game during a maintenance or hotfix window. With 3 unique buffs active including increased legendary drop rates as well as double blood shard drops from enemies ( bonuses not available when logged into live service) it'll help for that extra push towards getting those elusive items needed while leveling up quickly.. But don't worry if these new goodies aren't enough because we've got one more special surprise to say that you can buy Djank Mi'em, who will exchange Blood Shards for class-specific bags full of legendary items.

The latest class changes are about to be released and we want your feedback on them! These include major revisions for the Witch Doctor, Barbarian, Necromancer. You can take part in a focus-tested test environment where you'll get immediate reaction from other players before they go live with these updates or provide direct input into which abilities should change via an interactive map that gives insight into what others think should happen when playing certain characters. The theme this year is Soul Shards, so be on lookout for some awesome additional features as well as seasonal items in stores!.

PTR Testing Tips

If you find that your PTR experience is not enjoyable, try testing with a specific piece in mind. For example: what changes impact the Wizard specifically? If there’s something about these updates or patches that leave you as a player feeling underwhelmed and frustrated - concentrate on this aspect for feedback purposes when providing criticism. Remember to mention any problems from creator’s perspective so they can see where improvement needs to be made without being told exactly how things should work again!

Patch Notes


A new type of socketable item called Soul Shards is introduced in Season 25. These demonic pieces can be found by Nephalem, based on the three different types of souls that were once trapped within them: Divine Lords from Hellfire Rise who are now free thanks to DIAGONAL'S freeing axe; Lesser Demons enslaved into serving human beings but still thirsting for power just like any other demon would want it if they had legs - which most don't anymore because being stuck

Soul Shards and Hellforge Embers can drop from anywhere in Sanctuary, but they have a higher chance to appear on bosses. You may only equip one Prime Evil Soul Shard at any given time so choose wisely! Lastly: If you play during seasonal times Soul Shards and Hellforge Embers won't transfer over when your character leaves their respective season behind him or her once again.

Item Changes

Remorseless Call of the Ancients is a must-have for any Barbarian player. The ability to buff your Hammer of the Ancient with this skill allows you more than one way to wreak havoc on enemies, while also letting it do some serious damage in return!

The Remorseless talent makes Wrath even better - not only does its duration increase by 50%, but 600% or 800%. If there was anything left unclear about how powerful these skills can be together; now everyone will know what happens when they're used simultaneously.

Shukrani's Triumph: A spirit walk that lasts until you attack 3 times or an elite enemy is within 20 yards. It also increases damage dealt by 75-100% while in her realm, and even without attacking those enemies she can still cause some serious hurt!

The powerful Lakumba's ornament not only reduces incoming damage by 60%, but also adds an extra 2% per stack of Soul Harvest.

Spider Queen's Grasp is a powerful status effect that not only increases damage by 600-800%, but also has the potential to slow enemies down.

Brood of Araneae​: This is the worst nightmare for any gamer. These bloodthirsty creatures, known as corpse spiders deal an additional 75-100% damage and each bite causes you take 1% more damage from their creepy crawlies in 5 seconds!

Spirit of Arachyr (2-piece or 4- piece bonus): The Spirit of Arachyr is a malicious and spiteful creature, not to be trifled with. The 2-piece bonus; Corpse Spiders now spawn with health and attacks twice as fast! But that's just one side effect - when you get the full four pieces into your collection? Somewhere out there waiting in ambush lives an even MORE powerful spider spirit called "The Queen". She'll crawl onto screen dragging webs behind her which lasts 15 seconds before they break apart or damage foes for 75% reduced damage while stuck inside them. By the way there are some changes on Witch Doctor's Spirit of Arachyr set, as well as several legendary Witch Doctor items

The Marauder's Encasement set: Itis a powerful 4-piece bonus that sends sonic waves through the air, dealing 400% more damage and automatically casting your Hatred spenders when you deal critical hits. In addition to this heavy boost in firepower for sentries with active skills like Elemental Arrow or Chakram & Impale, it also gives near limitless advantage due to its ability being able transfer these effects from weapons all over one’s body! The 6 piece reward provides 12000% increased damage output against enemies caught within its coverage area whether they're struck by multiple blades simultaneously while performing MultiShot attacks as well firing cluster arrows at full force into crowds

The Shadow's Mantle (6-piece bonus): The Shadow's Mantle is a 6-piece bonus that impales an enemy, dealing 75000% weapon damage to the first foe hit and 25000% additional attacks for each subsequent target. This effect is from Demon Hunter Embodiment of Marauder set with some legacy functionality restored as well as shifted power going back into Sentry builds instead just focusing on individual targets alone like before now! Additionally The Shads throat sets have been buffed making them more potent against multiple foes.

Bones of Rathma (6-piece bonus): If you're looking to take your Blighted Cultist, Bonepluder and Kholek increase their power with the new Necromancer's Bones Rathma set. With a bonus that increases damage by 1750%, up to 31 500% more than before!

Firebird's Finery (2-piece or 6 piece bonus):  Firebird's Finery is one of the strongest builds in game today. This necklace has an effect that when you die, it revives your character with a 60 second cooldown and causes them to deal fire damage amplified by Combustion stacks against Ignited enemies while also getting bonus armor from Fire Over shields passive ability at higher levels! You gain 2500% increased damage while Ignite is applied to a target with 6 piece bonus.

Bug fixes will be given during two weeks in order to make your experience as seamless and enjoyable possible.

You can copy your existing Diablo III characters from the live server into PTR directly. However, only one region per account can have its data copied at any given time.

How to Participate

Log into the live game and then log out. Log onto PTR client; create a level 1 character for yourself before returning to your main account by clicking on that "Copy" button in upper right-hand corner (the Copy button won't appear until after building up some more gold). From there select which region you want copied over with all characters from only one copy getting transferred across at once; it'll disconnects them temporarily but upon reconnection those newly found heroes should be ready make their mark!

The war against the Burning Hells is about to enter a new chapter, offering players an early access opportunity with Diablo II: Resurrected and the Diablo Prime Evil Collection on Windows PC or eligible consoles. Starting August 13 at 10am PDT (8pm EST) longtime fans can pre-purchase these titles in order to secure their spot for Early Access Weekend starting Friday, Aug 16th at 1 pm PST until Sunday night. The first round of testing was limited strictly to those who were eligible as console players or could acquire access by watching their favorite Twitch streamers but all that changed following an Early Access weekend event on August 20th at 10:00 am PDT when everyone will be able to participate in the Open Beta Weekend. Please check FAQ for how to gain access by platform.

The Diablo II: Resurrected team is hard at work making exciting new additions to the game. Join them on their journey and see what they have in store for gamers!

Before Join Check Time Converter

In an exciting new feature, players will experience more classes as the Druid and Paladin join in on the test weekends. Next to these two there are more additional characters being introduced to play with: The Sorceress, Barbarian, Amazon and now the Druid is joining alongside them. Exclusive Twitch Drops will be enabled that allow access to the beta on your linked Battle.net account starting August 13


DRUID   “So it begins."

The Druids come from what many would consider an inhospitable wasteland: The region known as Scosglen. The rugged and beautiful home of the Druid's is teeming with Werewolves and other abominations lurking within the encroaching wilderness.  There is a price for power--a cost of becoming something more than human. A Druid must give up their humanity to awaken the beast-like traits that lie deep inside themselves. They need these wilds in order to survive and rule over them.

PALADIN “There is a great evil here.”

Paladins are legendary warriors who have fought in countless wars and destroyed legions of demons. They're usually hailed from the west, but they can be found all over Sanctuary spreading their virtues where needed most. Some wander across Realms as a form of penance for past sins while others seek to purify any heresies that might arise so these dark forces will never threaten humanity again.

Originally from lands far to the West, Paladins travel around the realms fighting evil with holy magic on behalf of mankind; an army unto themselves against darkness's hordes!


The developers plan to have multiplayer enabled for both test weekends, and will also feature cross-progression from Windows PC*, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One PlayStation®5* and Play Station 4*. With up to eight players allowed in the game at a time, it's an exciting and rewarding experience. You'll have more skills help each other with battles, as well as both damage dealt by monsters and dropped items scale upwards based on how many people join your session. Players can also choose to duel one another or even claim someone else’s ear for PvP combat!

Lastly, for all players looking to get early access in the beta test of Diablo II: Resurrected, Act I and Act II will be playable. Not only that but you'll also have an opportunity to see how some reskinned graphics look with improved resolution on your PC or console. For those who wish to experience this remastered version during the Early Access Beta Test you will need a separate pre-order from each platform that they want play on.


Twitch will be rewarding viewers with items for watching their favorite streamers on Friday, August 13th. From 10:00 a.m., PDT to 12:00 p.m., PDT the viewer must tune into the Diablo II category in order to receive rewards during this time period only (in qualifying regions). To participate in early access testing of Windows PC Resurrected they'll need 2 and 1/2 hours’ worth by tuning into any other category or channel before 9:30 am PST

Those who pre-ordered the Diablo Prime Evil Collection will not only receive a Mephisto pet and Hatred's Grasp wing set in Diablo III, but also have access to Heritage of Arreat Barbarian transmog sets if they own both games as well.

The Ethereal item line comprises 21 powerful weapons—three for each class—that provide meaningful damage boosts to your demon-slaughtering endeavors. These weapon upgrades will make you feel like the ultimate hunter, and they’re easy enough to find that is how I built my first tasty bowl!

There is a new line of exclusive weapons that you can wield against the demons. These are powerful and will give players an opportunity to experience more damage boosts than ever before with three different types for each classThe Ethereal item line comprises 21 powerful weapons—three for each class—that provide meaningful damage boosts to your demon-slaughtering endeavors. They’re instruments of prodigious potential from a bygone era that have recently resurfaced in Sanctuary to be brandished by heroes capable enough of wielding them, characterized by three preeminent attributes: they are rare, powerful, and fleeting. “You can only equip one at a time, and they have random legendary powers along with their numerous strong [fixed] affixes,” says Lee

When paving the groundwork for Season 24 and its accompanying theme, the team wanted to hearken back to Diablo II and the memories it left with them long ago. They iterated on several ideas, says Lee, but none of them felt as right as Ethereal Memory. “We really wanted to make this season feel special. We wanted to capture the spirit of Diablo II through an itemization-based seasonal theme, which led to the idea of Ethereals in Diablo III.” The concept of Ethereal items flourished, not only paying homage to the deep impact Diablo II had on Diablo III, its developers, and many of its players, but allowing the developers to reimagine how the iconic item line could be reimagined over two decades later.

For the Diablo III team, reimagining an iconic item line from Diablo II in its successor was an intricate endeavor. “One of the biggest questions we asked ourselves was, ‘what does it mean to make a Diablo II item in Diablo III?’” says Lee. “We looked deep down inside and tried to remember decades ago how it felt when a legendary in Diablo II dropped. It was rare, it was unique, it was strong, it had so many affixes, and it felt powerful.”

Some legendaries in Diablo II, Lee notes, were also never called by their unique names, but were instead referred to by their item types. They weren’t just powerful weapons and armor—they were ethereal weapons and armor. While Diablo III’s incarnation of Ethereal items don’t have the reduced durability and repair difficulty of Diablo II Ethereals that gave them a hallmark sensation of fleeting (assuming you didn’t use the Zod Rune)—but potent—power, the Ethereals introduced to Diablo III will only be obtainable and usable for the duration of Season 24. They still retain the unique icons, names, item types, and sounds they originally possessed in Diablo II, and can be transmogrified to your weapons after the season has ended if you manage to collect all 21 of them in Season 24.

With Diablo II: Resurrected launching on September 23 this year, Lee and the Diablo III team hope everyone will enjoy obtaining the unimaginable power offered by these weapons. “We want players to enjoy finding their first Ethereal and figuring out how to incorporate it into their builds after reading its numerous affixes,” Lee says. “Hopefully Ethereals can usher in new metas and give everyone an amazing experience this season.”

The best Action RPGs of 2021

The best Action RPGs of 2021

Console controller

Role-playing games (RPGs) are big business. Whether you are a gamer who is drawn to a PC or one who would rather be playing on the latest console, RPGs are everywhere. What makes them so popular? Perhaps it’s the fact that they allow us all an escape, even if it is just temporary. The chance to shed our own skin and take on the role of a hero holds massive appeal.

When it comes to what’s on offer in 2021, yes, there are plenty of new releases, but newer isn’t always better. There are an array of titles to consider such as Titan Quest, Dungeons and Dragons, Outrider, and many many more. For us though, there is one game that really stands out. First released back in 1997, it is Diablo that takes the crown as being the best RPG even so many years later.

What is Diablo

If you are already a gamer and if you’re already a fan of RPGs, then you may find this section a little pointless! Bear with us though as, believe it or not, there are still people out there who are yet to have the pleasure. Whether they are new to RPGs or just haven’t found their way to Diablo yet, who knows? They still need a brief overview of what this great game is though.

Diablo is an RPG that was released all the way back in 1997. This proved an instant hit as it was seen as a hack and slash game. This style of play is always going to gain a huge following. Of course, there is more than just the slashing though: this game also has a story behind it.

In the game, you will find yourself in the fictional kingdom of Khanduras. The role that players take on has a pretty important task: to rid the world of Diablo, Lord of Terror! This makes for an amazing game and one that was added to in the same year with the extension: Diablo hellfire.

Are there any new Diablo games?

It may be difficult to accept that a 1997 release is seen as the best RPG in 2021. However, there have been upgrades and newer releases along the way. The year 2000 saw the release of Diablo 2: The Lord of Destruction. This brought in a whole raft of new monsters to fight against and picked up the story where it had been left off in the original. 2012 saw the third instalment being released and this is what has kept the game so relevant and saw it being introduced to a new generation.

2021 is set to be a key year for the Diablo franchise. September sees the remastered version of Diablo 2 being released. Known as Diablo 2: Resurrected, this comes with improved graphics, better gameplay, and the chance for a multiplayer experience.

Diablo and esports

The esports market has seen phenomenal growth over recent years with games such as League of Legends captivating millions of fans. This growth has been fueled by the fact that people can now bet on these games just like they can on traditional sports. Fans search high and low looking for the best odds on league of legends so that they can maximize their wins. Given all of this, it would make sense for Diablo to perhaps enter the arena.

Previous versions of Diablo weren’t made with the world of esports in mind. However, there is a suggestion that the fourth instalment will be with us soon. This version is likely to be targeted towards esports fans. Soon you will be placing bets on this great RPG just as you can on League of Legends right now.

Why League of Legends is such a popular eSport

Why League of Legends is such a popular eSport

League of Legends multiplay

With tournaments taking place across the world, League of Legends sees professional players looking to take the title of champion. This is not a new game by any stretch of the imagination: first launched back in 2009, it is one that has gone from strength to strength and only gained in popularity. As well as the professionals themselves, there is also an army of fans looking to get in and watch the action. Thousands cram into stadiums to watch, with just as many placing esports bets on the outcome.

Did we ever think that the day would come where people were earning full-time livings from playing computer games? The smart guys did and they have taken the world of eSports by storm. Just like with traditional sports, gamblers like nothing more than taking a punt and wagering on the outcome of a game, but with so many games around, what is it that makes League of Legends quite so popular when it comes to esports betting?

A brief introduction to League of Legends

We don’t like to assume that you are all familiar with this game, so before going into its popularity as an eSport, we thought it would be worthwhile to cover the basics of what the game actually involves. It may have been around for a good few years now, but there are still players out there who have yet to acquaint themselves with all that this game has to offer.

League of Legends is a multiplayer game that is all about battling online. Teams are formed with no more than five players in each and they are then unleashed to do battle with each other. How do you win? The winning team is the one that locates and destroys their opponents' Nexus (a structure in enemy territory).

Characters are known as ‘Champions’ and each of these starts off as a novice. These novices will have few skills and access to only basic weapons. The more that you play, and the more that you win, the more your skill grows and the more weapons are unlocked for you to use.

League of Legends as an eSport

League of Legends isn’t the only popular eSport that is bet on. One of the other most famous titles is probably Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. This is a game that is played as part of a massive tournament. League of Legends differs here as the game is played within leagues. These leagues are on the large side and are often split into sub leagues that are based on towns and cities.

These leagues are great for fans who love to bet. They are much the same as a football league in that the greats will get promoted while those not so great will end up playing in a lower league. Fans can bet at the start of the season as to who they think will take titles, gain promotion, or be relegated. The similarities to betting on football and other traditional sports are obvious.

This league format attracts massive audiences. Stadiums can’t hold the crowds that want to be part of the action and so many fans will watch via pay per view to make sure that they don’t miss out. The existence of pay per view ensures that League of Legends is accessible to a global audience.

Why bet on this eSport?

We have just had a look at some of the similarities that there are with traditional sports, such as football. The truth is that the games themselves are a million miles away from each other: a team on a pitch kicking a ball is hardly comparable to a 10 person battle arena. It is the league format that makes the two so similar and what makes League of Legends so great to bet on.

Aside from the league format, League of Legends itself is a fast-paced game that is full of action. This makes it exciting to watch. There are so many twists and turns throughout a game that tension and anticipation build while fans await the outcome. It is this kind of buzz that adds to the experience and sees fans keen to place their bets.
