Blizzard clarified that Ethereals will be considered Ancient in terms of Legacy of Nightmares / Legacy of Dreams builds.
Patch 2.7.1 is currently available for playtesting and Season 24 comes with an interesting new Season Theme that revolves around Ethereals. You can read more about the upcoming Season Theme below.
New Season Theme: Season 24 introduces Ethereals, a new weapon-type that players will be able to acquire and hunt for in their upcoming seasonal journey. Ethereals will roll a powerful set of affixes, a random Class Weapon Legendary Power and a random Class Passive Power. Ethereals will have unique icons, names, item types, and sounds originally found in Diablo II. For additional details on Ethereals, check out the list below:
Ethereals are account bound and can only be dropped by monsters, chests, and destructibles, but do not require your character to be level 70 to drop. Ethereals cannot be acquired through Kanai's Cube or from Kadala. Ethereal rarity drop rate is set between Ancient and Primal items. There are 3 unique Ethereals per class. Each Ethereal has fixed affixes and rolls one random Legendary Weapon power and one random Class Passive Skill. Only one Ethereal can be equipped at a time. Ethereals ignore item durability loss. Legendary Powers and Class Passive Skills rolled on Ethereals do not stack with the same power equipped through Kanai's Cube, Items or Skills. Ethereals cannot be Enchanted, Transmogrified, Dyed, Reforged, or traded. Ethereals can be augmented. Collecting all 21 Ethereals during Season 24 will reward players with the Feat of Strength, Ethereal Recollection. Players who accomplish this will have all Ethereal transmogrify options available for future seasonal and non-seasonal play. Ethereals only drop in Seasonal play, and will not transfer to your non-seasonal character when the season ends. As you can see, Blizzard has updated the official post and clarified that Ethereals will be considered Ancient in terms of Legacy of Nightmares and Legacy of Dreams builds in the new Season.
Ethereals will be considered ancient in terms of LoN/LoD.
Blizzard wanted to release a hotfix for the interaction between Mirror Image and the Firebird's 2-piece set bonus today, but the change resulted in a mid-season nerf to Firebird's Finery, so they reverted it to its original state.
We wanted to share transparency on the hotfix released today. Our original fix with the Mirror Image and Firebird’s 2-piece bonus was intended to remove an unintended interaction that was causing errors to occur on the back-end. Upon reflection, we realized this was a mistake to release a mid-season nerf to Firebirds. Through the recent patches, our team has been able to correct the back-end errors and we have reverted the nerf to allow Mirror Images to proc the Firebird’s 2-piece set. This should restore the Firebird’s power to its original state, while also hopefully improving the lag players are seeing. We appreciate your patience and feedback on this. Thank you!
Blizzard fixed an unintended interaction on PC that caused Mirror Image deaths to trigger a meteor to fall from the sky.
Note that this is a PC only and doesn't affect consoles.
Hey folks - today we fixed an unintended interaction with Mirror Image deaths causing Firebird’s 2-piece bonus to proc a meteor to fall from the sky. Note* This fix is PC only fix.
It seems an item has been causing a lot of issues for players, but Blizzard was quick to fix it:
Razor Strop Fix (source)
Today we addressed an issue related to the Razor Strop item. After some investigation, it appears that the item was causing long game freezes for players and making it difficult for some to connect to games.
A fix has been applied, and we will keep our eyes peeled if the issue persists. Thanks everyone!
The new season starts today at 5 PM PST/CET/KST, and we have the guides ready. The season and patch change things up in the solo department and bring tweaks to Firebird, Bones of Rathma, and Gears of the Dreadlands, including more items.
