Season 14 Starts on June 15th!

Recommended Posts

It's that time again as there's a new season looming and the current one ends, with only 2 weeks left in Season 13! As usual there's a little break between them as everyone struggles to fit 2 entire stashes into one on the non-seasonal side of things and 14 starts on June 15th (which is just annoyingly confusing)!

Here we are again, nephalem. As we prepare to close out another Season in Diablo III, it's time to take a moment to remember what you have achieved and ensure that you're ready for the next.

If you haven't experienced the end of a Season, there's a lot to know about what happens to your gear, your progress, and your characters. Don't fret! We're here to give you a full overview of what to expect when the current Season ends and the next one begins.

Table of Contents:

 


The Season Rollover

If you've played through a Season before, you know that all the gold, gear, and Paragon experience you earned don't just disappear. But what exactly happens to all that hard-earned progress when a Season ends? The short answer is that you get to keep just about all of it.

Here's a list of all the rewards from this Season you can expect your non-Seasonal heroes to enjoy:

Heroes

  • Seasonal heroes will be converted to either non-Seasonal Normal or Hardcore mode heroes, as appropriate. There's no need to delete any characters to make room for them; your Seasonal heroes will continue to use the same slot they currently occupy in your roster after the rollover. You’ll also be able to use Season Rebirth to convert any non-seasonal character into a Seasonal level 1 character once the next Season begins.

Gold

  • Any gold you earn during the Season will transfer to your non-Seasonal heroes.

Paragon Experience

  • The total amount of Paragon experience earned is the amount that rolls over, but not the raw total Paragon levels that you gained.
  • For example, if your Seasonal heroes reached Paragon 300, and your current non-Seasonal heroes are already Paragon 400, your new non-Seasonal Paragon level will still be less than Paragon 700, since Paragon levels require more experience to earn the higher you go.

Blood Shards

  • Much like how it works with gold, any Blood Shards you have available at the end of the Season will transfer to your non-Seasonal heroes.
  • If your non-Seasonal heroes are currently at the Blood Shard cap, any Blood Shards you earn once the Season ends will temporarily ignore the cap. You can spend these at your leisure; however, you can’t pick up any additional Blood Shards until you are below the current cap.

Items

  • Items that are currently equipped on a hero or in that hero's inventory will stay on that hero as it moves to a non-Seasonal game mode.
  • Items that are in your Seasonal stash will be sent through the in-game mail system to your non-Seasonal heroes. These items can be claimed by any non-Seasonal hero up to 30 days from the time you first log in after the Season ends. To access these items on PC, enter a game and hit the Mail icon located in the lower left corner of your screen to open your inbox. Console players can do the same by visiting the mailbox found in any town hub.
  • If you’ve unlocked Primal Ancient items by completing Greater Rift 70 on a Seasonal hero, you’ll also be able to obtain them on non-Seasonal heroes after the Season ends (if you have not previously unlocked them for non-Seasonal heroes). 

Artisan Progress and Recipes

  • If your Seasonal Artisans are a higher level than your non-Seasonal Artisans at the end of the Season, their level will transfer to your non-Seasonal Artisans.
  • Any recipes you have on your Seasonal Artisans that are not available to your non-Seasonal Artisans will be transferred as well.

Shared Stash

  • Any Shared Stash slots or tabs you purchase during a Season that are not currently available to your non-Seasonal heroes will be transferred accordingly.

Achievements

  • Any achievements earned or achievement progress made during the Season are automatically applied to your non-Seasonal achievement profile. This happens in real time and does not require the Season to end first. Your achievement point total is also updated appropriately throughout the Season.

Kanai's Cube

  • After the Season rollover, any Legendary Powers unlocked using Kanai’s Cube on a Seasonal Character will become available on non-Seasonal characters as appropriate.
  • At the start of a new Season, Seasonal characters will not have access to any Kanai’s Cube Legendary Powers unlocked during previous Seasonal or non-Seasonal play.

Season 13 Rewards

  • All players who reach level 70 on a hero in Season 13 will unlock exclusive transmogrification appearances for helm and shoulders. These appearances will unlock immediately upon hitting level 70 on a Seasonal hero, and will be available on Seasonal and non-Seasonal heroes alike (even before the Season concludes). To access your new appearances, simply visit Myriam the Mystic and open the Transmogrification tab.
  • Players can also earn portrait frames and an exclusive cosmetic pet for completing various chapters of the Season Journey.

Note: All heroes, rewards, and progress will convert to the appropriate non-Seasonal game mode. Any items, gold, Paragon experience, achievements, Artisan levels or recipes, Stash space, and Blood Shards earned on Normal Seasonal heroes will transfer to your Normal non-Seasonal heroes when the Season is over. Similarly, anything you’ve earned on Hardcore Seasonal heroes will transfer to your Hardcore non-Season heroes instead. 


Season 13 Conquests

Unlike other rewards, Conquests do not roll over at the end of the Season (because they aren’t available to non-Seasonal heroes). This also means that your non-Seasonal Achievement point total will not be affected by any Conquests you earn during a Season.

 Season 13 Leaderboards

Once the Season ends, all Seasonal Leaderboards will be wiped and you’ll be unable to attain new Leaderboard ranks until the next Season begins. The results of the previous Season’s Leaderboards will remain available for viewing in-game for PC players. Once the new Season begins, PC players can view a handy dropdown menu to compare current and previous Season records. Similarly, console players will be able to view their rank for the previous Season.

PC players can also view current and past Leaderboards on our website.

USHPL57321MG1418849477100.JPG

In addition, the non-Seasonal Greater Rift Leaderboards on PC will be wiped sometime after the end of the Season. However, players on this platform can immediately compete in the currently active Era with their non-Seasonal heroes (including those who have just rolled over), and will not have to wait for the start of the next Season. 



Season 13 End & Season 14 Start Dates

You can sort through your Seasonal rewards and review your progress on the Leaderboards between Seasons. It’s a great time to reflect on the accomplishments you’ve made and enjoy the fruits of your pre- and post-Season loot hunts!

Season 13 will end on the following dates:

  • North America: Sunday, June 3 @ 5:00 p.m. PDT 
  • Europe: Sunday, June 3 @ 5:00 p.m. CET
  • Asia: Sunday, June 3 @ 5:00 p.m. KST

Season 14 will begin about two weeks afterward on the dates below:

  • North America: Friday, June 15 @ 5:00 p.m. PDT 
  • Europe: Friday, June 15 @ 5:00 p.m. CET
  • Asia: Friday, June 15 @ 5:00 p.m. KST

For time zone assistance, check out this handy guide. We look forward to seeing you in Season 14!

Ready for the Rollover?

How have you fared during Season 13? What was the highest Greater Rift you reached? Did you complete any Conquests? Any other exciting accomplishments to share?

Let us know in the comments!

Still have a people who play with this game?

I essentially just stopped once I learned there wasn't going to be another expansion for Diablo 3. What's worse is that they never announced or made it known to it's player base that there wasn't going to be another expansion for Diablo 3 at all. They just kinda told us in their RoS anniversary giveaway. Really no point to sink in more time into a game that is actually never going to receive any major patches and the like.

Just finished another conq for the season, so another stash space. 3 more seasons to go and then I'm maxed out, and can go back to just getting the pet and shit for the season.

 

Here's to hoping Monk gets a good starter set for next season, would like to try out Monk sometime.

Monk actually got like, their best set I think last season? I played it whenever that was and just FLEW through the conquests and it was one of the easiest experiences I had on seasons. Even then, it shouldn't be too hard to make such a monk build as long as they get a half decent starter set

Unless they fix the cheats with leader boards and other cheats in season. Fewer people Wil be playing

Fewer people will be playing whether they "fix" the cheats or not; that's because there's just no new content for returning players to consider.

PvE oriented games live and die by the (new) content they make available and its cadence.

It wasn't always like this, in the good old Diablo 2 days we would play the same game, with same items (minus some balance changes here and there) and same zones for years and years.

But we are on the Path of Exile age now. And people demand new things because there are many, many other quality games demanding our attention, after all. Funny how things changed!

This is my first time playing a Season, and I have just one last Objective to complete: "reforge a weapon property to a socket at the Mystic".  I know I've done it before but I can't for the life of me remember how, it's been so long.  Can anyone tell me how to do it?

Thanks in advance!

Grab a weapon that doesn't have a socket already on it and take it to the mystic and keep re-enchanting it until one of the options is a socket, and take the socket.

      The new season is finally live on the PTR! We'll be taking a look at all the new features so we can all be prepared for mid-May when the live patch is scheduled to arrive. Our very own Stan will be diving into the PTR and sharing all the details for those of us that don't want to spoil ourselves on the massively increased legendary drop rate test realm, or for those that don't have time/just want to wait for the real thing.
      Here are all the articles related to the new patch:
      Season 17 Pushed Back to May + All Season Durations Patch 2.6.5: Torment Difficulty & Rewards Additional Stash Space Gated Behind Seasons on PC Season 17 Guardian Reward: Galactic Wings Ancient Vault of Greed Videos Season 17: Sets & Rewards Season 17: New Torment Difficulties, UI Improvements, More Stash Space ________________________________________________
      And here are the full patch notes, in case you missed them before:
       
                 (Source)
      With Patch 2.6.4, we started a new process for testing content both internally and externally that worked well for our production schedule and helped ensure that we received focused, actionable player feedback. We’re going to continue using this process for Patch 2.6.5, with a one-week PTR to fully test Season 17.
      On the docket are also highly-requested quality of life changes, item changes that should boost some fan-favorite playstyles, and an all-new Season 17 buff that'll help us bring the terror to the Season of Nightmares!
      Table of Contents
      PTR Details PTR Goals PTR Tips Patch Notes General Quality of Life Seasons Items Bug Fixes How to Participate in PTR PTR Character Copy Please note that this is a preview for PTR content, which is subject to change.
      PTR Details 
      We'll be conducting the Patch 2.6.5 PTR over the course of one week, starting Friday, April 5. During the course of the PTR, there may be periodic maintenances, outages, hotfixes, or minor patches.
      There will be two buffs active to help you on your PTR journey: increased Legendary drop rate and double Blood Shard drops. This should allow everyone to acquire any class set items (or supplemental items) that they might need!
      Feedback should be provided in the PTR Feedback forum while bug reports should be provided in the PTR Bug Report forum. Clearly separating these tracks allows our designers and quality assurance testers to hone in on the information they need most.

      PTR Goals 
      With another new game-impacting Seasonal buff and several beefy boosts to Legendary items, we know it will be very tempting to get your hands dirty with as much as you can! To help guide your focus, here are the priorities in terms of what we’d most like to see tested.
      Players pushing Greater Rifts as high as possible with the new item changes listed below Experimentation with the Legacy of Nightmares Seasonal buff, with emphasis on finding builds with unforeseen interactions or bugs Return to Top
      PTR Tips 
      As with our previous 2.6.4 PTR, this testing period will have a short duration. Whether you’re a PTR veteran or newcomer, we thought we’d pass along a few tips to get you started.
      Because of the limited duration of this PTR, we ask that participants pick a particular portion of this update to focus on testing. For example, if you’re primarily a Wizard player, consider what changes impact the Wizard specifically. What you like best, what you think may still need adjustment, and what you'd want to see in the future (even if that may be beyond the scope of this patch) are all good questions to ask yourself. Prior to the start of PTR, consider stocking up on items like Puzzle Rings and Bovine Bardiches. Having these available after you import your character can make any necessary PTR farming much faster! Try to break things! Just tell us when you do so we can make sure that the 2.6.5 launch is as smooth as possible. When providing feedback, focus less on a solution and more on your experience. How did the changes make you feel? Was there something "off" that you noticed? Did something seem wrong or insufficient? Suggestions are always welcome but identifying the issues themselves is most important. Return to Top
      Patch Notes

We’ve hit a little bit of everything, from adding additional Torment levels, making Ancient/Primal Puzzle Rings feel rewarding, and rehauling stash space in both size and functionality. Other changes were made to help smooth out overall gameplay, such as making Bounties feel less of a chore and more rewarding and reworking a few of our notification screens.

In the wake of having a free Ring of Royal Grandeur active, we saw a lot of requests to try the same thing with the Legacy of Nightmares set power.

With 2.6.5, we’re continuing that trend through adjustments to (mostly) Legendary powers we feel have a very strong, fun fantasy, but needed some damage bumps.
      Bug Fixes

      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: Create a PTR account. To create a PTR account, log in to Blizzard Battle.net Account Management and double-click on your Diablo III game license; this will bring you to the game management page. On this page, click "Create a PTR account.
      If you've participated in any previous Diablo III PTR, the "Create PTR account" button may not appear. This is because you've already created a PTR account and can therefore skip this step.
      Step 2: Once you have created a PTR account, installed the Blizzard Battle.net desktop, and logged in with your Blizzard Battle.net credentials, select "Diablo III" from the main menu on the left-hand side of the application.
      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: You should now have the option to install and play the patch.
      The PTR is available in all supported languages, and accounts from all regions are eligible to participate.
      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.

      We have a new update for the current 2.6.5 PTR, aka the Season 17 patch, which brings a fair amount of tuning our way. The new Torment difficulties got tweaked so they'd be closer to their respective GR levels, legendaries got both buffs and nerfs and Necromancers' Inarius set got a huge x3(ish) buff, and there's a lot of bug fixes as well so check out everything new in red text below.

Stacks up to 4 30 times. The stacks gained from Wojahnni Assaulter now also stack much more quickly Developer’s Comment: With Patch 2.6.4, we focused on making a lot of changes to different class sets to open up build diversity and level out the comparable power between classes. With 2.6.5, we’re continuing that trend through adjustments to (mostly) Legendary powers we feel have a very strong, fun fantasy, but needed some damage bumps.

      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.

      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.

Level 3 is where you want to get as soon as possible, mob density here is so much better. This week, we have a Wizard DMO Build, meaning Slow Time should be cast all the time, because it increases damage done by 8,500% for mobs inside it and 5 seconds after they leave the area.
