Diablo 3 Seasonal guide for Beginner

Thanks for the guide. It was very helpful. Do the leaderboards only apply to Greater Rifts? Or are there leaderboards for other activities?

The only competitive leaderboard is for Greater Rifts, though Seasons offer a Conquest leaderboard too  - sort of a 'world first' completion of certain harder achievements.

Great work!

As usual, .. ;-)

 

I would like to suggest another crafting breakpoint at level 15, as you're able to create rare weapons and helmets that are capable of sockets (directly crafted or added by the Mystic afterwards) awaiting the first rubies found.

Thanks for the suggestion! I'll add it in a future iteration of the guide :)

How do I increase my Greater Rift level?  One of the things I have to do in the seasonal journey is "get to" a level 20 greater rift.  But the drop down options for Greater Rift level only go to 14 for me.

each time you beat one, it will give you the option of a higher level one.....if you beat it really fast the level goes up a few, I forget how many.....

Although a bit late to this, but maybe it will be helpful for others: you can unlock higher GRs without doing them with finishing a normal Rift on a certain difficulty (for example if you finish a Rift on T5, you'll unlock GRs up to 22) or getting someone open a higher GR in party

At level 42 you advise crafting level 60 weapons. This is impossible without Death's Breath to finish levelling the blacksmith, and people keep telling DB doesn't start dropping until level 61. What am I missing? Or was this different at the time you were writing this guide?

I'm checking right now and the Level 58-61 weapons don't require DB. (They are yellow quality)

I'm new to seasons. Do I need to make one character of each class to get the seasonal legendary gear? Is that hear available only for the season, or does it go into the general gear pool to be available once the season is over? Is there any reason to have more than one seasonal character at a time? I don't have many character slots left and I'm pretty attached to my current characters. Thanks.

I mean, seasonal specific gear doesn't exist anymore. If you want to, you can play 1 character all season and it will become a normal character at the end of the season.

Ok, so I'm a noob at diablo so keep this in mind. I personally have no clue what most of the items you talked about were, but whatever. I just want to clear something up.

 

So to sum it up, you create a new character on hard with seasons, start completing all the bounties, try a couple rifts, then when you're a high enough level, greater rifts and doing the season achievements. Craft a lot of things early on to help you get good armor, and that's about it? Except for the kani's cube guide which I will have to look back on this post a lot! Is that it?

Pretty much on the right track, do 1 full round of bounties, this gives you recipies and resources to grab bonus XP from Borns craftable set items + Cains craftable set! After the bounty you can simply run normal Nephalem rifts on Hard difficulty all the way to 70, no  point going up 1 difficulty (Hard is +75% while next tier is +100% and takes much longer).

Think I use those sets after my bounty run from lvl 20-60 for the XP. Also you'll find a Leorics Crown after a while and put a red gem in it and you get even more.

At max level just alternate Nephalem and Greater Rift and you'll get paragon levels in no time! :)

"Finally, the set conversion recipe is a relatively inexpensive method of assembling a set through redundant pieces, but cannot produce Ancients, and as such can only be considered an early 70 booster."

Might be outdated. I've rolled ancients with the reroll set option recently for season 10

That's not accurate. Rerolling set items can't get you an ancient. Upgrading a rare and getting an Ancient set item is entirely possible, however.

As said above, you can't reroll a set piece and get an Ancient from the Reroll Set option. It's not possible in-game. You might have done so using another recipe.

Can you create two season characters? I have a season character that's pretty high in season 10. I'm kind of bored with him. I'd like to create a wizard.

You can create as many seasonal characters as you'd like, however, you only get the free set with the first character.

Some of the Conquests requires you to have multiple characters as well.

Great guide! Thx a lot, Deadset!

The free set is bound to the class of the character who starts the season?

You complete seasonal quests and once you retrieve the item (Headrig's Gift) the items become permanent.

So in an example if you start as a Wizard you get 2 pieces of Tal'Rasha in the first reward and you cannot obtain this reward with any other character again but the items themselves can be stored in the stash for another wizard you make.

If you for some reason change along the way, it is possible to example complete the next stage of the seasonal journey with another class and it will become example, next 2 pieces of Helltooth for Witch Doctor but then you cannot go back and get 2 Tal'Rasha pieces there again.

      We have an update for the changes coming to the controversial Season 21 theme/power, which might dampen hopes for some major modifications to the mechanical effects themselves. PezRadar clarified that the changes will be focused on accessibility issues and the already mentioned set dungeon interference. Presumably this mostly means the visual queues for the powers, which many players have been reporting problems with, from the effects just being annoying and making it hard to see enemy affixes, to actual bugs making players' screens go completely grey and obscure all enemies and terrain.

      It's still somewhat unclear if these are the only changes being tested, as the community is pretty unhappy with the theme in general.
      Seasonal Power Changes (source)
      As Rich noted earlier, there will be an update coming that will address some of the accessibility issues with the seasonal theme along with the interactions its having in set dungeons. Team is testing a few things and we will provide an update once it is ready to be deployed. We greatly appreciate the feedback on all of this and the extra work that some of you have provided in captures, context regarding these accessibility issues.

      Raxxanterax has cleared GR 133 with his Hungering Arrow Gears of Dreadlands Demon Hunter and claimed rank 1 on the leaderboards, and we also get a not only a video of the clear, but also a commentary track explaining all the details, mistakes and gearing options related to the clear! 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
      It's a really great commentary so definitely check out the full video:

      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:
      Disabling the Seasonal Power (source)
      Disable elemental powers in set dungeon runs?
      Expect this change soon.
      ____________________________________________________
      So it seems we'll be seeing some changes to the somewhat controversial seasonal power for S21, as community manager FilthieRich said the team was tracking user comments and feedback on the topic and they'd have some updates to share soon.
      The change we're most likely to see and that the post is probably referring to is the fact that some players find the power distracting and not impactful enough, especially on the topic of it messing up your set dungeons clears, so we're likely to see some sort of toggle to disable it. Alternatively there might be a bigger revamp coming, perhaps tuning ot changing the way the amount of mobs killed before each proc affect the damage, but we're only speculating at this point.
      S21 Theme (source)
      Chiming in to share that we have been reading into comments and feedback related to the Seasonal Theme. Working with the dev team now to prep for some updates to share w/ you. In the meantime, thanks a TON for all the patience. Ill y’all updated.

      It's time for another sale, this time for Diablo 3! Both the base game and Reaper of Souls are 50% off, with the Neco pack 33% off, so you can get whichever one you're missing, or go for the Eternal Collection which is 26% off instead! With the new season just having started, and Diablo 4 being quite a long way off, there's still time to enjoy D3 and all its features.

      Season 21 is live for more than 48 hours, and the community reacts to the Seasonal buff that makes your character periodically channel an elemental power that unleashes into the environment.
      If you haven't had the chance to catch up with the latest news, Season 21 just started and with it came a new Seasonal power that makes your character do all sorts of stuff like breath lightning, rain meteors from the skies around you, release twisters of energy, and more.
      (Source)
      The elements have deemed you worthy. With you as their champion, the burning hells will face the Trials of Tempests! Your character will occasionally (every 90 seconds) channel an elemental power which unleashes into the environment for a limited time: Meteors rain from the skies around you. Breathe lightning. A wall of flame engulfs everything. Release twisters of pure energy. Crush your foes under the weight of rolling snowballs. The community perception of the latest Season 12 buff is all but positive. A Reddit thread titled "How did this seasonal effect make it past PTR?" has surfaced and accumulated more than 300 upvotes and we are highlighting the biggest concerns player have with the new Season theme:
      Apparently, the graphic effects make it nearly impossible to see what's going on, making it extremely frustrating for Hardcore players. If you fight Orlash and get the breath, it is difficult to determine where to stand. Card
      The sound that comes with it is obnoxious and distracts from gameplay and it cannot be turned off, Redditor stealth_elephant says. The third main concern is power. Many Redditors claim that it is good enough for ending massacres, but mediocre when it comes to killing enemies. Card
      On the other side of the spectrum, Wudi provides enough perspective on both ends. He discovered that it is much easier to kill Rift Guardians now with the Season 21 buff in a group where you get 10,000 stack to virtually one-shot it.
      What has your experience been with the Season 21 buff so far?
