We also get some tips on how to better play at certain GR levels with the set, and on hardcore, especially as Raxx is severely under health in the clear and wouldn't recommend it for others Diablo III D3 1 comment Today at 14:47 by Starym
Diablo 3 Season 21 Theme/Power Might Get Modified Diablo 3 Season 21 Theme/Power Might Get Modified Update: It seems (at least part of) the change being talked about is, as we presumed, being able to disable the seasonal power during set dungeons, and presumably also disable it in general, as community manager PezRadar commented on a reddit thread: Diablo III D3 6 comments Yesterday at 22:14 by Starym

Diablo 2 Remaster Wont Be Announced in June Diablo 2 Remaster Won't Be Announced in June After a new rumor that came out a while ago, based on nothing but the 20 year anniversary of Diablo 2's release and the fact that the IGN Summer Game Fest is going on, we actually got an official blue response to that claim stating that there will be no more Diablo-related announcements coming this month! But we did find out there will be some "fun activities" around the anniversary, whatever that means. Some remain convinced that we'll see a D2 remaster announced during the IGN event, again only based on the fact that Blizzard are participating (but they've already announced Mei at the event, so that might have been it.

Diablo 4 Quarterly Update Still on Track for This Month Diablo 4 Quarterly Update Still on Track for This Month We have some news on the second Diablo 4 quarterly update, in the form of a very short reply from Community Manager Lead PezRadar, confirming that it's still planned for this month, with a note that things can change. But we do now know it's at least written (in some form), so that's something.

In a bit of a disappointing development, it seems the announcement of the Season 21 start date has been postponed a little, as we were expecting it this week, but it will instead be coming next week. The patch notes for 2.6.9 will also be coming next week, and apparently they won't be too different from the most recent PTR ones.

Diablo 2 Remaster Significantly More Likely After Two Job Postings Surface Diablo 2 Remaster Significantly More Likely After Two Job Postings Surface There have been plenty of rumors about a supposed Diablo 2 remaster, Diablo 2: Resurrected being the most recent and most prominent, but we didn't really have any real indications for it other than rumors and supposed anonymous sources. That has changed a little today as two job postings indicate the possibility of a release and seemingly support the original rumor/leak. Blizzard Blizzard 8 comments Jun 18, 2020 at 17:45 by Starym

Is the Season 21 Power Too Good? ZDPS Barb Can Solo GR 150 Without Area Damage Is the Season 21 Power Too Good? ZDPS Barb Can Solo GR 150 Without Area Damage There have been plenty of issues with the S21 power, a lot of which have been fixed, and it's mostly been buffs/QoL changes, aside from one big nerf. The elemental effects were procing Area Damage  which was overkill, and Blizzard decided to disable that (but the change won't be implemented on PTR). And so Rob2628 decided to test what that will look like, removing all Area Damage from his Barbarian and headed into a GR 150, to see if he could finish it up without doing any damage himself, as he was using a ZDPS build.

Solo GR 150 S21 PTR Showcasing Seasonal Power Issues Solo GR 150 S21 PTR Showcasing Seasonal Power Issues This solo max Greater Rift video from the PTR is a great showcase for several of the changes that went into the new patch today, as it was done before the second PTR deploy and is taking advantage of and identifying problems with the seasonal power. You'll see exactly why Blizzard decided to remove Area Damage procs from the seasonal power abilities, why the firewall and meteros were improved and more, so it's definitely worth a look!
