Diablo III previews upcoming Season 3 rewards

    
18

Diablo III players who want to take part in a brand-new season of play don’t have much longer to wait. The third season starts on April 10th and expects players to roll brand-new characters to take on the game’s challenges as a group. True to form, there are unique rewards for those who brave the depths with a fresh character and start racking up achievements.

Players who take part can look forward to new conquests and achievements, complete with a new pennant and portrait frame for those who earn 100 and 400 seasonal achievement points, respectively. There are also cosmetic pieces rewarded to anyone who raises a character to level 70 during the season and new legendary items exclusive to season players until the season ends. If you’re a fan of the game, you should consider taking on the season challenge as well; you’ve got a little over a week to make that decision.

Ugh.  I have to rush a Seasonal character up to level 70 within 3 days.  Not sure if I want to do this, lol…

ColdinT boredinBC For sure.  I like the shorter season, but they should be transparent about start and stop dates.  Whats the point in having a race if you don’t know where the finish line is?

I love these seasons and I always come back and get a new character to 70.
Season 2 was first time I did a Barb and it was pretty great.

boredinBC ColdinT The other reason why is because they didn’t want to release patches mid season because patches can drastically change everything.  Like if it was easier before to get up on the leaderboard and then a bunch of class nerfs roll on through and now it’s impossible to mirror that same performance it causes issues.
So expect seasons to last about as long as they do major patches, every few months.

boredinBC ColdinT Season 1 was really long, which is why I expected to have plenty of time for Season 2. When you figure you’ll have at least for months, having less than 2 is a bit jarring.

I’d give it all up for another bank slot.  Where am I supposed to put all these shiny new items?  On He Who Shall Not Be Played (e.g. mule)?

ColdinT Season 2 started on Feb 13 and ends on April 5, so it’s just shy of 2 months.   Season 1 was REALLY long.  I think they realized that seasons give a big boost to player numbers initially, but they quickly taper off.  Keeping the season length down will probably keep population numbers up and encourage more players to stick through the whole event.

slayerofwalls Yeah, I’d imagine that’d go pretty quickly. Still, I suspect if I did it I’d just hop in when the season starts and play as I felt like it. I kind of like the progression of skilling up as you go, as far as it goes. :)
I’m patching it in any case. Never know when I might feel like fiddling around.
