Diablo community team member Nevalistis has taken to Battle.net to put a final hype piece out concerning 2.4 and its new features.

 

The post can be found here, or simply scroll down to read it! 

 

Blizzard Icon Nevalistis

Death continues to stretch its icy grasp over the world of Sanctuary. The terrors that await will crush the life from your fragile frames, and know that I shall be patiently observing from the threshold of existence. Let us examine the trials ahead together, that we might better prepare for your inevitable doom.

 

Mad Mysteries Await

 

 

- Greyhollow Island and Beyond -

 

 

 

Though I do not require respite, were I to take leave of my duties, this little lost island immersed in intrigue would be a restful destination. Bloodthirsty beasts, occult mysteries, and the total annihilation of an entire civilization? Even from the distant shores of a deserted Westmarch, I can sense the malevolent forces that are undoubtedly to blame. How invigorating.

 

 

The scattered remnants of the Coven have finally made use of their pitiful existence, clearing the previously collapsed stairwell within the decrepit halls of Leoric’s Manor. Perhaps it is worth your time to see what the Mad King left behind.

Return to the Ruins of Sescheron and take a moment to observe your surroundings. To the east lies the Eternal Woods, the wilderness that surrounds this barbaric landmark. Beware the yeti who roam this frozen wasteland and keep your wits about you; the remnants of their hunts often claw their way above the permafrost. . .

The Strong Grow Stronger

 

 

- Set Item Revisions -

 

 

 

It is prudent to equip yourself to your best of your meager abilities. Luckily for you, your efforts are now much more manageable. Many of the fabled Set items of heroes past have grown in strength, boasting new or improved abilities.

 

 

This is, of course, in addition to the treasure trove of new items the Horadrim have discovered and catalogued. I have acquired some of their research, and I recommend you take note of their findings.

 

Rise to the Challenge

 

- Set Dungeons -

 

Pride is a satisfying sin, and there is no greater gratification than watching an egotistical hero fall as a result of their own hubris. Naturally, when a curiously dangerous new set of challenges arises, I have little doubt your arrogance will get the best of you. Set Dungeons have begun opening their mystical portals all around the land of Sanctuary, and you will be permitted to enter should you be fully equipped with a completed wardrobe.

The challenges that lie within will take planning, guile, and dedication to conquer. Naturally, you do not stand a chance and, regrettably, death will not claim you when you inevitably fail. Still, should you desire to overcome these challenges, your efforts will be well rewarded.

The Price of Power

 

- Empowered Rifts -

 

The greed of adventurers knows no bounds, and I have heard whispers of the immense fortunes so many of you possess. While I am hardly impressed, perhaps I can recommend an alternative to rolling about in your filthy lucre? The abilities of your nephalem friend Orek are not yet depleted, and he has use for such riches.

Empowered Rifts allow your gold to serve you best by enhancing your Legendary Gems with additional levels of power. Naturally, should you fail in your challenge, the treasure you offered will be as forfeit as your life. A pity, but to be expected.  Buyers should always beware.

 

Treacherous Shores Lie Beyond

 

- Greyhollow Hungers -

 

Are you prepared to dare the dangerous coastal forests of Greyhollow Island? Will you prevail a true victor over the challenges of Set Dungeons? Or do you simply pine for the newest Season, eager to once again begin your journey anew? Share your thoughts below, that I might welcome you to your end with open arms. I do so enjoy being the guide to your doom.

 

Best of luck, nephalem.

      The double XP weekend just ended today and now we get a new patch! This small patch fixes a number of issues, like anniversary transmogs not working properly, Rift progress orbs spawning closer to enemies, new Necromancer portraits and a few more minor fixes.
      Patch 2.6.0a - v2.6.0.46494 (source)
      Important: Please note that you will not be prompted to download Patch 2.6.0a until the patch is live in your home region. If you are logging in from a European or Asian client, you will need to wait for this patch to release in that region before it can be installed. Additionally, if your home region is in the Americas, you will be unable to log into Europe or Asia using Global Play after Patch 2.6.0a is live until those regions have also patched.

      Diablo III Patch 2.6.0a - v2.6.0.46494

      Visit our Bug Report forum for a list of known issues.

      If you are experiencing technical issues with the patching process, connecting to Blizzard Services after installing the patch, or errors while playing a newly-patched game, please visit our support site or post in the Technical Support forum for assistance.

      General Fixed a number of string corrections in German and Chinese localization clients Fixed an issue where the special items from the Diablo Anniversary dungeon had lost their unique appearance, icons, and associated transmogs Players who previously had these transmogs should have them once again after the patch deploys
      Adventure Mode When defeating enemies in Rifts, progress orbs that spawn will now be closer to the defeated enemy
      Items Moribund Gauntlets The audio for Moribund Gauntlets has been adjusted to be quieter
      Necromancer Necromancer portraits have been updated The existing portraits in game were intended to be placeholders, but weren't properly updated with the final patch. This is now resolved. Previous hotfixes (July 7).

      The double XP weekend is live everywhere and will last from today, July 14th until July 17th. The exact end times are in the blue post below. If you'll recall, the reason for the weekend was due to the lateness of a hotfix that corrected exploits some players used to level up their legendary gems, so it is one of those rare occasions where exploiters actually did something good for the rest of us! In any case, head on down to Sanctuary and get those Paragon levels (or, like me, level your hardcore characters).

      Starting this weekend, all heroes who log in to Diablo III on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will receive double the usual amount of experience points!
      The bonus buff begins in the Americas, Australia, and on console today, July 14 at 5 p.m. PDT and ends Monday, July 17 at 10 a.m. PDT. The buff is currently live in other regions and will end at various times (see below for details).
      • Korea / Taiwan: Ends July 17 @ 8:00 UTC*
      • China: Ends July 17 @ 8:00 UTC*
      • Europe: Ends July 17 @ 11:00 UTC*
      *For time zone assistance, click here.
      Whether you’re just starting out with your new Necromancer or working on taking your Paragon level even further, get ready to jump into the fray and rise to new heights!

      The recently posted hotfixes should be live now and Blizzard's holding a double XP weekend as an apology for the delays starting this Friday.
      Additionally, players that were using exploits to level up their gems will have them reverted to a rank that would have been legitimately achievable prior to the patch going live.

      Hey all,

      I know you've been eagerly awaiting an update, so a few things to share with you:

      First, we extended the post cap on this thread. Let's try to keep discussion and feedback on this topic here as best we can to keep our General forums more organized.

      Secondly, the hotfix has now been deployed. This should be applicable to all regions at this time. Thank you so much for your patience!

      Lastly, we will be rolling back Legendary Gem levels to the maximum gem level that would have been legitimately achievable prior to the patch going live. As with all previous exploits, any additional actions we may take will not be discussed outside of our staff and offending individuals. 

      We will be holding a double XP weekend starting Friday, July 14 at 5 p.m. PT and ending Monday, July 17 at 10 a.m. PT as an apology for the delays and our gratitude for your patience as we address this issue. Thank you to all who issued reports and helped us uphold the spirit of Play Nice, Play Fair!
