Not that Diablo III was ever a calm and peaceful game at the best of times, but with the advent of Season 21, it’s about to get even more frenetic than ever. The new season, dubbed Trials of the Tempests, is designed to keep players on their toes with random effects that happen around them on a frequent basis.
“During Season 21, your character will occasionally (every 90 seconds) channel an elemental power which unleashes into the environment for a limited time,” Blizzard said, going on to list some of these effects, such as meteor showers, walls of flames, and giant snowballs. At least it sounds as though some of these effects will work in favor of the player instead of against him or her!
Season 21’s rewards include a recycling of Season 9’s goodies, a Stupendous Contraption pet, and the usual carrot of class sets. The patch that came with the season included new Demon Hunter and Necromancer gear sets.
