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.

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.

      Blizzard today posted an update about their plans for Diablo at this year's BlizzCon. They are working on multiple different Diablo projects right now, but more details will be revealed when the time is right.
      It appears that BlizzCon will primarily focus on the Nintendo Switch version of the game and they are not ready to unveil Diablo 4 just yet.
      Blizzard (Source)
      BlizzCon 2018 is almost here and we’ve seen a lot of rumors flying around about our plans for Diablo at the show. These are very exciting times—we currently have multiple teams working on different Diablo projects and we can’t wait to tell you all about them . . . when the time is right.
      We know what many of you are hoping for and we can only say that “good things come to those who wait,” but evil things often take longer. We appreciate your patience as our teams work tirelessly to create nightmarish experiences worthy of the Lord of Terror.
      While we won’t be ready to announce all of our projects, we do intend to share some Diablo-related news with you at the show.
      November 2 will be an especially diabolical date—not only is it the first day of BlizzCon, it’s also when Diablo III arrives on the Nintendo Switch. If you’re planning to pick up the game (the digital download will be available starting at midnight on launch day) and are joining us in Anaheim, be sure to bring your console. We’d love to slay some demons with you on the show floor.
      Again, we want to thank you for your patience and support. We are eternally grateful to you and the millions of other Diablo fans around the world whose passion for this franchise inspires us and keeps our fires burning.
      We’ll see you in hell . . . and at BlizzCon!

      Update: As mentioned in the comments, the contest is only available to residents of the USA, Canada and Mexico (and not even all US states).
      The Switch release of Diablo 3 is bringing some new events to everyone, as we're getting an interesting scavenger hunt, both of the online and real world varieties! The rewards vary from Switch console and D3 bundles, to just the game, as well as real life Diablo themed weapon replicas. The Diablo twitter account will be posting hints for the scavenger hunts in the coming days, and you can read up on the detailed rules below:
      Legendary Hunt (source)
      Whether you’re a Diablo veteran or a complete newcomer, chances are you love treasure. To get you in shape for Diablo III Eternal Collection on the Nintendo Switch, we’re inviting you on a treasure hunt. Get ready to stretch those loot-chasing muscles and get your hands on some sweet (and very real) rewards! We’ve hidden items across the internet (as well as in a few real-world locations), and it’s up to you to find them. Don’t worry—we’ll be giving you some clues on where to look. Learn more below!

      In the coming days, we’ll be sharing some clues on our Twitter page. Once you decipher them, visit the corresponding location (online or in real life) to find an item or QR code. Click the link or scan the item you found, and you’ll be whisked away to your collections page, where you can track all the items you’ve collected so far.
      The items you find earn you entries into a prize drawing, where you could win all kinds of amazing treasures. The number of entries you get for each item you find varies on its quality, so keep an eye out for those Legendaries!

      Among the prizes up for grabs are copies of the Diablo III Eternal Collection Nintendo Switch Bundle, digital copies of the game, and various collectible goodies. You can also earn real life versions of some of the items you’ll find on the hunt! These are one-of-a-kind artifacts, brought to life by the crafting masters at Volpin Props.
      If the idea of having your very own real-life Legendary item sounds appealing, be sure to follow us on Twitter and be on the lookout for the first clues.

      Think you have what it takes to solve all the clues and hunt down these treasures? There’s only one way to find out, nephalem! Good luck on the hunt, and may the best adventurer win.
