Additional Stash Space Gated Behind Seasons on PC

Recommended Posts

42826-season-17-sets-rewards.jpg

There's been a slight update to the new stash space for PC players in Patch 2.6.5. It's going to be gated behind Seasons and you won't be able to purchase it with Gold when the patch goes live.

Additional stash space coming in Patch 2.6.5 will be gated behind the Season Journey on PC. They've enabled it all for testing purposes on PTR, according to the latest updated patch notes.

Console players will be able to buy 70 stash spaces for Gold right away.

rofl, I seriously considered playing several more hours with D3.

Testing out a new LoN build.

My item-stash is quite full (I never played a single season, because leveling up bores me to death).

But with a few more stashes I could try out the new ancient build.

Hell, I even thought about investing in the Necromancer if there is a cool LoN build for him.

But if Blizzard thinks it's fun to force me to go thourgh all my stuff, throw tons away to get new room (and later on being angry because some item I threw away would be needed for a new build) - well Blizzard, I do NOT think that is fun. It's work.

Maybe Blizzard doesn't understand the concept of money. You work to RECEIVE money. You PAY money to get fun.

I do NOT pay money to receive work.

But probably for the best, there are lots of games out there that offer much better value for 10 Euros.

 

Thank you Blizzard for preventing me from doing a mistake and buying stuff from you!

I definitely agree that this stash tabs policy goes the wrong way. However. Not that I still play much of Diablo 3 these days, but isn't that kind of game supposed to be some work? You collect stuff, you gain experience, you do more to get more powerful.

Since Diablo 3 started to throw everything in front of their players, most people lost interest in the game. "Rare Items" are not even rare and Gold piles up like desert sand. The same happened with WoW. . There is no sense in playing an RPG when you already get everything in the first day. The last time I played was Season 9 and I completed it within three days. It's just a joke what happened to Diablo.

Nowadays the general playerbase is more interested into quick action. Many RPGs suffer from that a lot. It's all about the immediant demand for the end game and the adventure of gaining levels and exploring over weeks has become irrelevant.

IMHO The best way to close the gap between the casual in-and-out playerbase and the dedicated playerbase would be to give these stash stabs for ingame Gold. But reduce the amount of legendary drops by 50% as it was in 2.0. Leveling is already too quick with requiring three hours on a casual basis, but I think it is just barely enough to leave it that way because we got Paragon levels. If any content should be available for dedicated players only, it should be some overpowered dungeons and bosses, not the tools of the game.

Maybe with some changes like this, new content isnt dealt with in an hour and what you do or find becomes more relevant, while everyone has access to all the items and tools. Right now it is just a meaningless playground.

Be interesting to see what they charge for gold (they won't, but hypothetically), as everyone is a multi billionaire every season..........

D3 is about farming items. Finding new stuff, getting better stuff. Leveling.

Sure. 

I want to farm items. 

But the problem is: I can't KEEP them. Diablo forces me to destroy items I find, even though there is a chance I might need them later. 

We have a game that is extremly focused on loot - and at the same time a player can't keep as much of this loot as he likes.

I would be ok if I could unlock more chests ingame. 50 GR runs = 1 more stash. 50 x bounties = 1 more stash. That would be fine.

But the new stashs aren't avaiable by just playing the game.

No, it forces me to start the game from scratch. AKA playing a season.

But I do not enjoy leveling characters. I did that with 4 characters, and it was fine for the first times. Then it got boring. Now if I would faced with the choice: "Delete D3 completly or level a new character from scratch" I'd hit the delete button without a second thought.

 

A little too harsh, but it boils down to this: To just being able to  play the game (to be able to keep the stuff I farm), Blizzard wants to force me into many hours of work.

"Gated" means what exactly?  You need to play Seasons to get it?  Do you have to Finish?

"Gated" means content is locked behind certain activities or achievements.

In this case new stash tabs are locked behind the 2nd last chapter of the the season journey... If memory serves you have to clear Torment 13 content (GR lvl 60), higher level crafting objectives using Kanai's Cube and complete 2 season Conquests (difficult challenges that take a fair amount of time for a casual player to prepare for).

You don't have to finish the season journey but completing the 2nd last chapter of the journey is out of reach for some players....that's why this sucks big time.

Thanx Acheronus.

Bummer.  I never found the Cosmic Wings and I was hoping to get these "Knock-Offs."

      With the Season of Nightmares in full swing, Blizzard posted a guide on Ancient and Primal items, where they highlight the difference between them and talk about the ongoing Seasonal bonus, which increases your damage dealt and reduces damage taken by a percentage for each Ancient you equip.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Ancient items truly shine in Season 17: so long as you have no Set bonuses equipped, each Ancient you equip will provide you with a massive 750% boost to damage dealt and 4% reduction in damage taken. For those of you who may have taken a break from gathering loot recently, we thought a quick refresher was in order to clear up any confusion about the differences between Legendary, Ancient, and Primal Ancient items.

      In general, Ancient and Primal Ancient items are more powerful versions of Legendary items. They are identical to Legendary items except that their base attributes (damage or armor) and all non-percentile affixes roll higher values for both minimum and maximum possible rolls.
      Ancient & Primal Ancient Items
      The stats on these items will (generally) be tailored to the character class you are playing when the item drops Set items are also able to roll as both Ancient and Primal Ancient You can’t equip more than one item with the same name, even if one is Ancient and the other isn’t Any percentage-based affix will not be boosted (such as Attack Speed, bonus % to skills or % Critical Hit Chance/Damage) Ancient Items
      Only drop for characters who have reached level 70, and only on Torment level difficulties When dropped, Ancient items share the same orange glow as regular Legendaries You must identify the item to see if it’s an Ancient Once identified, Ancient items have an orange border (or green for Set items) around the item tooltip and say "Ancient" in the item description. They drop from all sources including monsters, chests, Kadala, Horadric Caches, Kanai's Cube, and even crafting at the Blacksmith or Jeweler Primal Ancient Items
      When dropped, Primal Ancient items have a red beam and glow Drops from any source of Legendary item in the game, including Horadric Caches, Kadala, and Kanai's Cube, but only after having successfully completed at least a level 70 Greater Rift solo These items are much rarer than Ancient items and have perfect Ancient-level stats on all affixes, including the item’s Legendary Power Primal Ancients & Developer Philosophy
      Primal Ancients are for players who have largely completed gearing for their build or finished their Season Journey but want to continue playing. They’re also for non-Seasonal players who have great gear and spend most of their time gaining Paragon Levels and upgrading Legendary Gems. We wanted to extend the excitement of seeing gear drop or spending Blood Shards at Kadala beyond obtaining Ancients in every slot. Primals provide an avenue for dedicated players to complete a build, without feeling like required upgrades.
      We hope that answers any questions you may have about Ancients and Primal Ancients. Now go get ‘em!
