Blizzard announced today the release date of the first season for console players (PS4 and Xbox One) of Diablo 3, which was announced at BlizzCon. Starting Friday March 31st console players will be able to enjoy season just like PC players have (including the Rebirth option). Check out the full details on the Blizzard post about this, below are a few of the important items coming for this season. The following is the sets available via Haedrig’s Gift for Season 10: Barbarian – The Legacy of Raekor Crusader – Armor of Akkhan Demon Hunter – Embodiment of the Marauder Monk – Inna’s Mantra Witch Doctor – Zunimassa’s Haunt Wizard – Delsere’s Magnum Opus Another key piece of info outlines that you will need to be connected to either the Playstation Network, or the Xbox Live service to create (or rebirth) your character for the season:

START OFF THE SEASON WITH A FULL SET! As seen in the picture below, each class gets a certain Set via Haedrig’s Gift! Simply complete the tasks outline in this article and get that running start to the season! Hot To Get Em All! Reach Level 70: You will get your first two set pieces! Kill Zolton Kulle: You must kill Zolton Kulle on T2 or higher. The 2 set pieces you got after hitting 70, along with a few crafted items, should make killing him a little easier (this can also be done in a full party). Killing Zolton Kulle will give you the next two pieces of your 6 piece set! Now you will have 4 pieces when you move onto the next phase. Complete Great Rift 20 (between T4-T5 difficulty) or Higher Solo. The 4 piece set with a few crafted items will also make this a lot easier!

 B A R B A R I A N  IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT SET DUNGEONS! The 6 Piece Bonus Must Be Active: While you must wear the entire set for the Pilar to spawn, you can equip a Ring of Royal Grandeur to reduce the set items required for a full set by 1. As long as you have that on your character, or in Kanai’s Cube, your 5 piece set will be allowed into the Dungeon. Hardcore Players CANNOT DIE in Set Dungeons: Instead of dying your life will reach 1hp and prevent death will be activated. Monsters will still have the attack animation, however, their attacks will do no damage to you. A GREEN PORTAL will appear beside you, after the death procs, and it will take you back to the outside of the set dungeon entrance. DO NOT TAKE THE GREEN EXIT! ANY monster sitting outside the entrance that you ran past

Stay awhile, and listen. Come gather by the fire and talk about the builds you all want to see! Let the ancient knowledge of the Horadrim assist your quest for greatness as you slaughter the demons that stand in your way. For all that is good, build yourself into a warrior worthy of Pandemonium! Allo Allo! And of course, welcome to another edition of the Horadrim Corner, where we shall this week feature that muscle-bound maniac, the Barbarian. With Patch 2.3 changing the IK set for the Barbs, more builds opened up with the Hammer of the Ancients being the most popular. Thanks to some new items this build is one of the most effective out there. Without further ado, here we go: Actives Hammer of the Ancients – Smash: Combined with the Gavel of Judgment, this will serve as your main damage dealer along with being the proc for Focus and

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW TO BE A PRO! IMPORTANT DOs & DON’Ts  Regardless of The Method Used To Level ALWAYS: Take your followers weapons for more damage starting off! Even if you are solo, you can still use your follower without them having a weapon. Check for cursed events. Stick to Act 1 Cursed Chest events, as the monsters in Act 1 are the easiest to kill, resulting in maximum efficiency. Cursed chests can be found in The Fields of Misery, The Old Ruins, Cathedral Level 1, Caverns of Araneae, and Halls of Agony 3. Keep an eye out for Helms with SOCKETS! Place a Ruby (Red) Gem into it (Red Gems = XP Boost). If you are in a party SHARE the extra socket-ed helms with your group. PICK UP EVERYTHING! Salvage everything you get to drop in game once you out level them (DO NOT be afraid

In the newest round of the Transmog Tuesday series, Bookshelf showcases his Necro-Barbarian.

Welcome to the Horadrim Corner! Come gather by the fire and talk about the builds you all want to see! Let the ancient knowledge of the Horadrim assist your quest for greatness as you slaughter the demons that stand in your way. For all that is good, build yourself into a warrior worthy of Pandemonium! This week’s build is about our favorite raging muscle-bound mountain man, the Barbarian, submitted by none other than our own Leviathan. With Patch 2.2, Barbarians are back with a spiraling vengeance. The addition of the Wrath of the Wastes set in particular enables everybody’s favorite Spin-to-Win skill. This is a Barbie’s new and preferred choice for slaying the demons of Pandemonium. Fortunately with the improvements to the Immortal King’s Call set, the two may be combined to create true devastation upon the battlefield. The limits of this build are potentially sky high (even without the


Books have often been society’s only bastion of light for passing along knowledge that would otherwise be lost to time or convoluted by the oral tradition. In order to provide new and old adventurers with as much knowledge of what to expect on their journey in Sanctuary, we created this tome of knowledge – Ars Arcanum. We will regularly feature a Legendary weapon or armor piece, discussing its stand-alone powers and capabilities, as well as how it may synergize with new builds or other items. We have been avidly testing Patch 2.2.0 in the Patch Test Realm (PTR) and community excitement seems to be at one of its highest levels for what’s to come when these changes finally go live. Not only will there be plenty of features, which everyone loves, but there will be many new items and that’s what the game is truly all about. Today, we’re going to

One of the most epic parts of being a nephalem in Sanctuary is that there are so many of us! On a daily basis, players are wracking their brains, stashes, and forums for new ideas on how to build a better demon slaying machine. The Hellforge is an iconic location steeped in lore and visited briefly in Diablo II – it is a place for getting dangerous deeds done. We wanted to bottle that same ethos and create a compendium of possible builds for players new and old to research, test, and iterate upon. We will scour the community’s offerings to bring you some of the more intriguing entries in celebration of innovation and inspiration for new creations. Greetings, friends! In this special edition of the Hellforge, I’m back from the Patch 2.2.0 PTR with some really cool Barbarian stuff. The new sets in general are putting out a ton of
