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.

C R U S A D E R 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 to

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!

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! Come and read another edition of The Horadrim Corner! This week we shall be looking into that Holy Warrior for Akkhan, the Crusader. With patch 2.2 came a revamped Roland’s Legacy, creating both Sweep Attack and Shield Bash builds. For this one, we will be focusing on a Lightning Sweep Attack, creating great crowd control while outputting high damage. It will also utilize a number of defensive skills, such as Iron Skin, allowing for a great balance of the two. The build will not utilize a Wrath Generator, requiring careful execution and precise resource management, however making
It’s another round of Transmog Tuesday, where we take a look at the best looking Nephalem submitted by YOU, showcase them for the world to see, and figure out what makes them tick. If you’re going to slay demons, shouldn’t you look good doing it? It’s clear that Diablo has its own sense of artistic style. In an extremely unbiased opinion (that’s sarcasm), I believe that the Diablo franchise has some of the most unique-looking and distinguishable art out of the Blizzard games. What happens, however, when Diablo is combined with another video game franchise art style? Blizzpro reader, TheHyperFusion, has decided to tackle this feat. With Final Fantasy having such a discernible art style as well, TheHyperFusion has taken the famous Dragoon armor from the game and made it his own within Diablo. Using the Crusader, TheHyperFusion has done an incredible job of carefully selecting pieces to resemble the Dragoon style from
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. Patch 2.2.0 promises to introduce a slate of truly interesting items and while some slots in particular (like last week’s bracers) are being super leveraged as auxillary set pieces, weapons are also another area where it seems the developers have laid a heavy focus with the hope of unseating familiar mainstays. Today, let’s talk about Blood Brother, a two-handed sword, and how it might shake up

The long awaited Patch 2.1 has been with us for quite some time now. Not only did it usher in essentially a new era of Diablo with its massive introduction of new features, but it also brought with it new items to mercilessly hunt down and theorycraft new builds with. One of those particular items is currently tucked away as a season-only Legendary, so if you
