Rise of the Necromancer Pack Rewards

Recommended Posts

We still have no idea when we'll get to play the Necromancer (that is, those of us not lucky enough to get into the beta), but we now know what else we're getting with the Rise of the Necromancer pack! That cute little guy up there is the new "Half formed golem" pet, and we get the usual combo of wings, portait, banner stuff and pennant as well.

The Necromancer is coming to Sanctuary soon, but that’s not all!

Purchasing the Rise of the Necromancer pack gives you full access to the new class — including Necromancer-exclusive Set and Legendary items — plus two additional stash tabs and character slots.

Even better, you’ll get a new portrait frame, a pennant, wings, a banner shape, a banner sigil, and a Half-formed Golem pet! Check out the sweet loot you’ll be sporting as you raise the dead and restore the Balance, and get ready to join the ranks of the Priests of Rathma!

Wow, that is so great!

We get a great new campain, a new hero and more for FREE?

Best news ever.

Uh, wait, we have to pay 15 bucks or more.

And we don't get a campaign. Or story. Or new content.

But hey, we get a pet and - even better - a portrait! How great is that? Fantastic deal.

Not.

While I agree with everything you said, I'm still gonna buy it :(
I've played all the other Diablo clones to come out since, well, Diablo, and D3, with ALL it's many flaws still has the absolute best combat feel of all of them. And leveling a new class was always the most fun for me in any Diablo-like (even with D3's shitty skill system) so yea. I didn't think I'd care about the Necro but I've been away from D3 long enough to start getting slightly excited about it again.

To be fair, this isn't like their other games.  Each one makes money a different way, and they should, because Blizzard is not a Charity, they're a business.

With World of Warcraft, you don't get new classes in content patches, you get them in Expansions which cost $50 along with the other content.  World of Warcraft makes most of it's money on subscriptions, and then the bi-yearly release of Expansions, along with some Blizzard Store purchases.

In the case of Heroes of the Storm, you have to buy the new characters with either real money, or grind the game long enough to get in-game currency.  There's also some content which is exclusively unlocked through real money, so even though the game itself is free to play, there are plenty of things that earn Blizzard enough money to support everything related to it.

With Overwatch, new characters being added was part of the sale for the game itself, and they can still make money off of people who buy loot boxes to unlock new skins, voices etc that are connected with the new characters.  They charge for the game and the random loot boxes, but there is no charge for access to new characters.

With Diablo III, there is only one time fees.  No loot boxes, not cosmetic content locked behind paywalls, no monthly fees.  That leaves only one way for them to not be wasting time and resources on making additions to the game: charging for them.  Keep in mind, if you have no intention of playing the Necromancer, then there's no reason to even pay.  All of the content locked behind the paywall is Necromancer exclusive.

This is the biggest thing that people need to remember. Without things like this, Diablo is basically just a money-sucking black hole that would be shut down pretty quickly. In order to sustain the costs associated with developing it, we'd reach the "once per year" kind of thing you see with Call of Duty and the like. Perhaps not that drastic, but something along the same lines. 

Personally, I'm totally fine with it and will be buying the pack.

According to Blizzard, there will be nothing big coming out after the Necromancer update. So it is good to come back for that game and enjoy it again. I currently suit up all classes for GRift 70, complete my wanted achievements and fill the cube completely. The Necromancer should come right in time when I finished the rest.

It is quite sad that Diablo3 has never really been a great hit for Blizzard standards. Patching a Dungeon Crawler into a Hack'n'Slay did not work out well. You get too much gold, "rare items" are not even rare anymore and you slaughter Demons instead of being afraid of the next room of this dark world. I might go back to a more challanging RPG like Path Of Exile after this because they are adding six new Acts.

But this (probably) last big update will be my special time for Diablo3. :) I hope the next Diablo, which is supposed to have a different gameplay, will be awesome and fun.

Well, they COULD make a real expansion, a good one with interesting characters and good story telling. Like Throne of Baal in D2.

I'd be happy to pay my 40 bucks for something like that.

But since they didn't manage to make more then 2 of the 5 acts halfway decent that is probably way too much to ask :(

 

To sum it up: I am very content with the effort they put into D3 in general. They did a lot to the game after the expansion was released. For free.

I am totally unhappy with the horrible story they told in D3 and the pathetic presentation (Act 3 - 5).

I just dream about another add on which brings the story to a good ending, an add on which has the feeling, the atmosphre and the high quality of Diablo 1 and 2.

I am kind of sad, that D3 ends instead with an (IMO totally overprized and quite useless) "DLC".

As it stands, I believe they are still recruiting people for an "unknown" Diablo project that is apparently different from D3 due to coding differences or something. This could mean they are putting a huge amount of resources into D4, but didn't want to just leave D3 behind for another year or more. The Necro at least gives people something new to play around with in the future seasons until D4 does eventually release.

I'm guessing in their eyes another expansion would just delay the release of a 4 or 2-remake!

It's new content regardless. Having a new class increases the already insane replayability of the game.

Either way, I love D3 that much that I'll buy new content regardless of the value of the pack.

This is pretty much my thinking on it as well. A new class to farm up, test new builds, push higher GRs on. Also testing it in new group setups should be good fun.

If you bought D3 and RoS at maximum cost, you blew $120 max, right? If you've played even 120 hours of game, it's a buck an hour, which as far as entertainment costs go, is pretty thrifty. However, we all know you've put in single weeks with close to 120 hours of play, so I'm betting your per hour cost for all the D3 good times you've had is more like pennies per hour. Though this new massive $15 charge for the Necro pack will drive that back up to close to a nickel per hour for the first two weeks or so!

That's actually a pretty interesting way of looking at it. In this case, I don't think I can ever complain about a cost in most Blizzard games ever again!

      It seems the fact that only Crusaders and Monks are getting new sets is bothering a fair amount of people and Nevalistis has replied to a forum thread titled "2 out of 7 classes are getting love!?", which is a pretty ironic title considering Barbarians are getting quite some affection this season as well (I suppose it's only love if there's sets involved... typical materialists!!1).

      The explanation goes into why this way of releasing updates to the classes was chosen and what other ways were planned and then scrapped (although the reason behind the initial limitation is clearly because there aren't that many devs working on D3, as is to be expected - and hopefully the rest are all on D4):
      Season 19 New Additions (source)
      This is pretty good summary as to why. We really had two approaches we could have taken to bringing new stuff to the game:
      Release smaller patches that have something for everyone Release larger, more focused (and ideally better balanced) patches for 1-2 classes at a time We’ve opted for the latter because we think it makes a lot more sense on a lot of levels; we can focus on a particular art style, gameplay is more consolidated, and we’re at less risk of breaking more things at a time while we work. We knew this approach could be divisive, which is why we called it out in the blog from August. We didn’t want it to be a surprise.
      Class Sets in Diablo III greatly impact skills and gameplay style. Each needs room to breathe (and be thoroughly tested) as they’re implemented. And if we need to make changes to the ones we’re adding after your feedback, we need time to do that, too.
      Trying to juggle seven all at once was just outside scope, especially as supplemental Legendary powers need attention too. I won’t pretend we’re going to get it all right, but pacing ourselves accordingly makes that at least a little more likely.

      Update: we're also getting a new pet and portrait frame in addition to the reurning rewards from Season 7!

      The next season's PTR will be up this Thursday and we have all the patch notes already! The big news is the new seasonal power, and it's a pretty solid one. The Pandemonuim effect will not only buff your speed and power (up to 50% speed and 100% damage) based on killstreak, but also has a combo effect depending on when you choose to end your killstreak (from massive frost novas, angels descending to help and more). All the effects are listed below and will scale based on the GR level as well, making them (hopefully) relevant in higher GRs as well.

      We're also getting new sets! Crusaders and Monks will be getting them this season, with the other class ones arriving in later seasons, and there will be new and returning legendary powers that will synergize with the sets.

      Barbarians also get a lot of tweaks to their legendary items, hopefully addressing the issues players have had with the class.
      New Pet (source)
      I totally forgot to put this in the patch notes, but just in the interest of visibility:
      Added a pet and portrait frame reward for completing the full Season Journey for Season 19
      This is similar to the Galactic Wings that were available during Season 17 and in addition to the returning Season rewards from Season 7 for completing Chapter IV
       
      PTR Patch 2.6.7 (source)
      The one-week PTR testing period for 2.6.7 begins October 17 and we need your help to make Season 19 better than ever!
      We’ve begun introducing brand new class sets to Diablo III as outlined in our Ongoing Support blog, heavily revised several Barbarian Legendaries at the direct request of the community and continued to iterate on our approach to Seasonal buffs and how they can change up the overall gameplay experience. Take a look at the preliminary patch notes below and start theorycrafting; Patch 2.6.7 will be arriving before the end of the year!


      PATCH 2.6.7
      Table of Contents:
      General Seasons Items Monsters Bug Fixes Note: All changes apply to all versions of Diablo III, including PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC unless otherwise indicated. Please note that PTR is only available for PC and Mac users.
       
      General
      Greater Rift Keystones are now subject to vacuum pick-up A note regarding the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) has been added, clearly stating we do not sell account information. For more information regarding the CCPA, please see here. (Console Only) Return to Top
       
      Seasons
      Developer Note: One of the biggest pieces of feedback from Season 18's buff was that the Triune bonus didn't stick with your character while you adventured. With Season 19, we've altered course as well as upped the ante by experimenting with new mechanics to add an element of both chaos and power to the battlefield. It should feel a bit like Pandemonium, and it may be a consideration whether or not you want to reset your total kill streak for a particular killstreak bonus versus continuously maintain the overall effect (especially as the highest level killstreak rewards will be harder to leverage in situations like Greater Rifts). Killstreaks with higher kill count requirements are more powerful, and we're looking forward to seeing what players think of and do with them! The buff for Season 19, the Season of Eternal Conflict, has been added Pandemonium For the duration of the Season, all players will have a stacking buff that that persists as long as you have hit or killed a monster within the last 5 seconds Each stack gives 0.05% movement speed and 0.1% bonus damage. This bonus caps at 50% movement and 100% damage (1000 stacks) In addition, after reaching a certain number of kills in a row, a power is unleashed, dealing an amount of scaling damage based on player level and difficulty or Greater Rift level: 15 Kills: Five massive energy twisters are unleashed 30 Kills: Dark Geysers form beneath enemies 50 Kills: Exploding Chickens seek and destroy 100 Kills: Corpses rain from the sky 150 Kills: A wide Frost Nova freezes enemies 200 Kills: Treasure chests fall from the sky 300 Kills: A ring of fire engulfs everything 400 Kills: Meteors hail from above 500 Kills: Angels descend upon the battlefield to fight for your cause 1000 Kills: ??? Powers are tracked at a group level; this means only one power can be active in play at a time, regardless of the number of players in a group Return to Top
       
      Items
      Developer Note: With Patch 2.6.7, we are beginning to roll out new class sets for every class in Diablo III. For the Season of Eternal Conflict, we're focusing on the two classes that embody the Light and wield some form of Holy elemental damage: Crusader and Monk. You'll also find a handful of retuned or newly added Legendary powers intended to synergize with the new class sets. We did a lot of community research into which skills were most requested by players as well as most underrepresented in current builds, and we hope you're as excited as we are for these new gameplay options. The other class sets will be coming in later patches, so if your class isn't represented this time around, fret not—they're coming in a future patch! You'll also notice a significant number of Barbarian item changes in this patch. While the Barbarian class set will be coming at a later date, we have very much heard the War Cry from our dedicated Barbarian community and implemented a number of changes heavily inspired by extremely thorough feedback. While not every suggestion has been taken at a 1:1 parity, the thoughtful analysis helped guide us to changes we could implement in this patch. Thanks very much to the community members who expressed their concerns in a respectful, constructive manner. It's very helpful, and we greatly appreciate the thought and effort that went into making your voices heard! New Crusader Set: Aegis of Valor 2-Piece Bonus: The charged bolts from Fist of the Heavens has a chance to cast another Fist of the Heavens 4-Piece Bonus: Hitting with Fist of the Heavens reduces damage taken by 1% for 5 seconds. Stacks up to 50 times 6-Piece Bonus: Increase the damage of Fist of the Heavens by 10,000% New Monk Set: Patterns of Justice 2-Piece Bonus: Sweeping Wind gains the effect of every rune 4-Piece Bonus: Each enemy within Sweeping Wind increases your movement speed by 5%. Stacks up to 10 times. 6-Piece Bonus: Attacking with Tempest Rush while Sweeping Wind is active will temporarily increase the size of Sweeping Wind after hitting over 30 times within a short period. Sweeping Wind damage is increased by 10,000% Darklight Fist of the Heavens has a [45-60%] 100% chance to be cast twice. Additional Legendary Power: Increases the damage of Fist of the Heavens by [200-250%]. The Eye of the Storm New Legendary Power: When Sweeping Wind hits exactly 1 enemy, its damage is increased by 100%. Vengeful Wind Increases the maximum stack count of Sweeping Wind by [6-7] 10 Additional Legendary Power: Increases the damage of Sweeping Wind by [250-300%] Chantodo's Resolve The scaled attack speed damage bonus to Wave of Destruction has been reduced Developer Note: This is a reactive adjustment from an earlier change to how Wave of Destruction receives a bonus from Attack Speed. The buff that resulted from that change was more than we expected, so we're reigning it in. Wrath of the Wastes 6-Piece Bonus: The damage bonus now also applies to Rend Lamentation Additional Legendary Power: Increases the damage of Rend by [150-200%] Ambo's Pride New Legendary Power: Attacking with Whirlwind also applies Rend and the total damage of Rend is dealt over 1 second Remorseless Hammer of the Ancients has a [25-30%] chance to summon an Ancient for 20 seconds New Legendary Power: While both Wrath of the Berserker and Call of the Ancients are active, Hammer of the Ancients deals [200-250%] more damage. Fjord Cutter You are surrounded by a Chilling Aura when attacking. New Legendary Power: Seismic Slam attacks 50% faster and also deals 100-150% increased damage against Slowed or Chilled enemies Bracers of Destruction Seismic Slam deals [400-500%] increased damage to the first 5 10 enemies it hits. Fury of the Ancients Call of the Ancients gains the effect of the Ancients' Fury rune and your Ancients attack 100% faster Bone Ringer Now has a cap of 60 stacks. Developer Note: We never intended for this item to be used in a way where you farm stacks for an egregious amount of time (5+ minutes) and then watch all their health disappear in less than a second. It's not an engaging style of gameplay, and we don't want that experience to be the best way to play the Necromancer.

      How to Participate
      To participate in the public test, you must have a Diablo III game license attached to a Battle.net account in good standing (i.e. one that hasn't been suspended or banned). In addition, you will also need to download and install the Blizzard Battle.net desktop app if you have not already done so.
      Step 1: Restart the Battle.net desktop app.
      Step 2: Navigate to the Diablo III tab on the left-hand menu.
      Step 3: On the Diablo III screen, there is a drop-down menu right above the "Play" button (note that this may say "Install" if you do not have Diablo III currently installed). Select "PTR: Diablo III" from this drop-down menu before proceeding.
      Step 4: Click Install to begin the installation process.
      Your PTR account will be created automatically if you do not already have one. The PTR is available in all supported languages, and accounts from all regions are eligible to participate. For additional assistance with installing and launching the PTR, click here.
      Return to Top
       
       
      PTR Character Copy
      The option to copy your existing Diablo III characters from your live account to the PTR will be available and can be done directly through the PTR client. However, only one region per account can be copied at a time. So, if you choose to copy characters from your account in a different region, any previously copied PTR characters will be lost.
      Step 1: Log into the live game and then log out.
      Step 2: Log into PTR client and create a level 1 character. After you're done, return to the main character screen.
      Step 3: Click on the "PTR Copy" button located in the upper right-hand corner. (The PTR Copy button will not appear in-game until you have created a new level 1 character.)
      Step 4: Select your region.
      Step 5: Click "Copy." This will copy all characters on your account from the selected region.
      Step 6: You will be disconnected from the PTR client.
      Step 7: Log back in. Your copied characters will be available for play.
      Please note that you can only copy characters from one gameplay region at a time. If you choose to copy characters from a different region, any previously copied PTR characters will be lost. In addition, you can only copy characters over to your PTR account once every 24 hours. Attempting to copy characters before this cooldown is up will result in an error.
      Return to Top
       
      As this is a test server, please anticipate uneven game performance, and note that restarts and downtime may occur without warning. Thank you, and we look forward to your feedback!

      The drop chance of Legacy of Dreams from Greater Rift Guardians will be increased in Season 19. A suggestion has been passed on to the dev team to include the gem, which replicates the Legacy of Nightmares buff, in the Haedrig's Gift cache.
      The increased drop chance means the gem will have a higher priority to drop from the Greater Rift Guardians as outlined in the blue post below.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hello everyone,
      In this post I just want to discuss my views on two different approaches for starting a season, and why adding a reworked Legacy of Dreams gem to the 3rd Haedrig reward makes sense.
      As noted, I feel there are two sorts of progressive players in D3. First, you have players that want to take sets, whatever is the most powerful, and just go for it out of the gate. Next, you have a group of players who prefer the slow grind of gathering different pieces of loot for a more player driven build.
      Right now, the first option is the only relevant option if you want to compete out of the gate.
      By allowing Legacy of Dreams to drop with Haedrigs gift, and re-balancing as a level 50 max gem rather than level 99, you fully open up the option for players to hit the ground running with Legacy of Dreams.
      I see absolutely no negative to these two changes, but wanted to see what the community thought?
      Thank you!
      That’s certainly a thought. I’ll pass the feedback on to the development team.
      I will note, however, in the next patch, we are going to increase the drop rate for Legacy of Dreams from Greater Rift Guardians. It’s a little low currently and hopefully that will help with the feeling that this gem is too scarce. We’ll give that a go first and see if we need to re-evaluate after.
      Is this to be interpreted as making it drop sooner when you first start collecting the gems?
      Correct. While you’ll get it eventually even with bad RNG by process of elimination, this change should make it more likely to drop sooner rather than later.
      Again, not guaranteed; random is still random and bad luck still happens. But it should be better after the update.
