What to Expect From Season 8?

With Season 7 ending in five days what can we expect from Season 8?

Season 7 comes to a close on October 14. What to expect still remains a mystery. You see, it's in Blizzard's nature to announce a new content patch a little earlier, because most of the patches need to be playtested on Public Realms before they hit live servers, which doesn't seem to be the case with Season 8. With no PTR up, I don't believe there will be any new content and perhaps Blizzard is planning to start further Seasons with no new content and minimum changes, limited to the rotating transmog set, new portrait and a pet. Let's just hope this isn't true, otherwise Season 8 will be Season 7 just one number closer to 10.

Season 8

We've got very limited knowledge of Season 8 so far, but here's what we know. Keep an eye out for further news in our Diablo 3 section.

  • During this Season, you'll be able to unlock the fifth and last stash tab if you unlocked the remaining four in previous Seasons.

What's certain is these are the starting sets

  • Barbarian - Immortal King's Call
  • Crusader - Seeker of the Light
  • Demon Hunter - Natalya's Vengeance
  • Monk - Uliana's Strategem
  • Witch Doctor - Spirit of Arachyr
  • Wizard - Vyr's Amazing Arcana

Portrait

A while ago, I wrote about all in-game Diablo 3 portraits. It's safe to assume that some of the portraits below are designated for Season 8.

Let's hope for a Diablo-related announcement on BlizzCon.

Damnit, Stan. Why did you tease us with the April Fools Archivist portrait? For a split of a second I thought Blizz would actually release him as a character. Lmao.

      Happy four year anniversary since the release of Reaper of Souls! The first and only expansion for Diablo 3, it was preceded by about a month by Patch 2.0, which changed a number of gameplay systems in Diablo 3 like Loot 2.0, Paragon 2.0, Difficulty System Rework. The Reaper of Souls then arrived in Sanctuary as Malthael captured the Black Soulstone, becoming the Aspect of Death. The expansion brought:
      A new class, the stalwart Crusader Level cap raised to 70 New items/powers only for level 61+ characters. Act V - Westmarch, Blood Marsh, and Battlefields of Eternity as some of the main locations Adventure Mode - Bounties, Nephalem Rifts The Mystic - Enchanting and Transmogrification Kadala and Blood Shard Gambling - The greatest evil of them all With that being said, we’re here to remember all the changes that have come to Diablo 3 since release, whether it was the introduction of the Infernal Machine, Brawling, Legendary Gems, or the removal of the Auction House, Invulnerable Minions, or the rework of Crafting Materials, Bounties, or Reflect affix.
      We’ve got 20 Diablo velcro patches to give out. They were given out at BlizzCon 2017 for playing the Diablo demo. To be eligible to win, just post a top-level comment below with your favorite (or least favorite) change that has come to Diablo 3. If you need a refresher on all the changes, check out the condensed patch notes.
      Some additional rules:
      You can only enter once. Your reddit account must be at least one month old by the time of this posting (i.e. created before February 25, 2018). All countries are eligible, although I’ll be shipping from the US, so it may take some to get to some parts of the world. Winners will be chosen randomly. Contest ends on April 1st, 11:59 PM PDT.
