After two years of no significant content release in Diablo 3, that means since the Necromancer pack release, Blizzard hasn’t offered something else. But yesterday, May 17, Diablo 3 has come with Season 17, which is the second themed season from the fame. The players will have three months of buff, quality of life updates, and new difficulties are added. Are you curious to know what Season 17 from Diablo 3 is bringing?
- The Legacy of Nightmares Theme – the Legacy of Nightmares buff is active, and the effect will grant extra damage done, and you will have less damage taken for each weapon. The Ancient weapons are very rare but very powerful on the Legendary weapons category. Also, the Legacy of Nightmares will be deactivated by other set bonus. In this new season, players are being rewarded if they don’t wear armor pieces. So you have to experiment with the Legacy of Nightmare builds.
- The New Torment Level – in season 17 you will have three new Torment levels to the game. Season 17 is bringing Torments 14, 15, and 16 and they have the same level of difficulties and rewards and Greater Rifts 65, 70, and 75.
- A New Quality of Life – Season 17 comes with a patch that adds search functionality to a game as old as Diablo 3, especially for the PC players. Now stashed items are more natural to found. The arrows will help you in the missions’ objectives because it will appear immediately.
- The Set and Ability Balancing – the Season 17 comes with balance changes for the games, bonuses, and Legendary items. A new Legendary potion is added for healing. You will find out that Bottomless Potion of the Unfettered, will make you immune for 5 to 7 seconds to the control-impairing effects.
Finally, the new Season 17 from Diablo 3 is focusing on Legendary items, and the purpose is to make the players experience a great one in the Legacy of Nightmares buff. If you want to see the complete list of patch notes from Season 17 of Diablo 3, click here.
