With the latest update to the PTR for Patch 2.5.0, Season 10 also kicked into gear. With that, we can preview which Haedrig’s Gift sets each class is getting as well as the Conquests that will be available. As always, this is all subject to change, since it’s still on the PTR and not yet official. Haedrig’s Gifts 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 These sets mirror the Haedrig’s Gift rewards from Season 6, so it stands to reason that we will be able to predict all of the Haedrig’s Gift lineups going forward, as the current Season 9 gifts are the same as Season 5 when the feature was first introduced. Conquests Sprinter/Speed Racer – Complete Acts I through V at max level in


Official Season 9 Preview

by Stephen Stewart on

Season 9 is a mere two weeks away, so it’s time to start organizing your friends and preparing to go all in for that opening weekend. Do you know which class you’re planning to go with? Are you ready to take down the next Conquests? If you haven’t given these questions any thought yet, don’t worry. Blizzard has all of the official information you need to help you prepare in the coming days. We previously ran our own preview of what to expect from Season 9’s Conquests and Haedrig’s Gifts, so between that and the below, you should have all you need to slay all of the demons come January 6!

Last night, the Patch Test Realm (PTR) for Patch 2.4.3 opened up the gates for Season 9 testing. As is common with each new season, the rewards for each classes’ Haedrig’s Gift set rotates along with the five Conquests available for completion. I hopped into the PTR to see what we would be in store for in Season 9 and, surprisingly (or unsurprisingly), some things have stayed the same while other things have changed. Haedrig’s Gift Sets The Haedrig’s Gift sets for each class are as follows: Barbarian – Might of the Earth Crusader – Thorns of the Invoker Demon Hunter – Shadow’s Mantle Monk – Monkey King’s Garb Witch Doctor – Jade Harvester Wizard – Firebird’s Finery Similar to the most recent seasons, the gifts are tied to completion of Chapters II, III, and IV of the Seasonal Journey. The sets that contain seven pieces will supply you with two

In Season 2, we saw several Conquests added to the game to provide new challenges for players looking to immortalize themselves among the first 1000 completions. Only one of those conquests returned for Season 3 – Avarice/Avaritia. In this conquest, you must complete a 50 million gold streak while outside of both areas of The Vault. As soon as you tick over 50 million gold in the streak, which is easily tracked in the lower right corner of your screen, the toast will pop up and you will be rewarded with your Achievement…but will you receive the Conquest? At the time of writing, both boards are currently still far away from their 1000 maximum, so let’s hurry and get you on your way to obtaining this one for yourself. It’s relatively simple, but requires a bit of preparation and smart play. Setting Up Initially, you need to select a class


Things To Do Before Season 2 Ends

by Lt. Lunatic on

With the recent announcement of Season 2 ending on April 5th, many Nephalem are winding down their current seasonal play in order to gear up for Season 3 and the new patch. With such a short season, it leaves players with a smaller window of opportunity to complete their goals. On the other hand, those who have been playing Season 2 regularly may be at the tail end of achieving their goals. What were your goals this season? Was there a specific Greater Rift level that you wanted to finish? A full set that you wanted to loot? With less than two weeks before Season 2 ends, there is still much that can be accomplished. To give you some extra ideas on what to do for the remainder of the season, here are a few things our Diablo team here at BlizzPro will be focused. Experience and Gold Find Buff Happy

As you are likely well aware by now, Season 2 is available for preview and play on the Patch 2.1.2 Test Realm right now. Along with the fully functioning test also comes the ability to preview next season’s Conquests and get some practice in on executing them as quickly as possible for when the real deal goes down on live. So, what are the new Conquests? Here’s a picture preview of each taken directly from the PTR moments ago: As you can see, some of the ideas from the Season 1 Conquests came back, but in reimagined form, with only Divinity/Lionhearted being the true returner. It’s simply scaled up to Greater Rift 35 due to the rebalancing of Greater Rifts for Patch 2.1.2 after you reach Greater Rift 25. If you were planning on getting a leg (not a Legendary) up on the competition by plotting out strategies for these during

If you didn’t get a chance to catch the panel live or via the live stream, don’t worry! We’ve got all the juicy details right here. General News Season 2 and Patch 2.1.2 PTR coming soon. Not everything shown below will be in Patch 2.1.2, some will come in later patches. Still no word on when Season 1 will end. The devs view RNG or randomness as a tool, not a philosophy to be aimed for. Randomness helps add varying play styles to the game and helps to increase replayability and long time enjoyment to the game. They acknowledged the need to curb some of the extreme randomness throughout the panel but stress that randomness is always going to play a part in Diablo. No plans on adding D2-like Runes to the game. They don’t like Runewords from s design aspect since you have to exit the game to learn
