Diablo III has launched Season 21, Trials of the Tempests

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.

LOL Grim Dawn gives you all that with skills. Blizzard does only for a season. D3 is so behind GD that it’s kind of sad.

Wait a second, so every 90 seconds an environmental effect blankets the area trying to kill me; think I’ll pass this season.

No, it kills the mobs.

Either way. It sounds kinda of lame. It’s really disappointing looking at the difference of upkeep between Diablo and PoE.

That’s because it’s all hands on deck for Diablo 4 at Blizztown. We’ll have to wait for several years to find out if the wait was worth it. Personally I’m not a big fan of PoE for a few reasons, but neither am I expecting much out of D4. Torchlight 3 sucks. I’ve logged 600 hours in Grim Dawn so that’s played out. I’ve got over 300 in Warhammer Inquisitor Martyr. I’m kinda out of options for ARPGs these days.

I’m in the same boat. I’ve recently bought Hades on Steam’s sale but didn’t have the time to test it.

D3 isn’t really monetized so it would be unreasonable to expect the same level of dev support for an 8 year game without an active revenue model.

Yea true. I mean paying the CEO stupid amounts of money is more important than maintaining the companies assets.

“Maintaining the company assets”

That’s actually what they are doing. This new season theme is lame indeed but that’s not the meat of this patch. New sets and reworked legendaries are. New builds, new ways to play the old ones every patch; the game is in a totally different place from where it was a year ago. And that’s an eight years old game with no monetisation scheme at all and an highly anticipated sequel announced.
Blizzard actually does a pretty good job catering to people who are still into the game. For people that left or have yet to get into, there’s Diablo 4 coming.
