While most fans are likely still thinking about the future (or the remastered past) of the franchise, Diablo III is still doing its thing, and the latest thing it’s doing will be arriving to the game’s PTS tomorrow, February 25th, with a testing focus on a follower system revamp, solo leaderboard tweaks, and some gear set balance adjustments.
First, followers will be able to equip up to 14 different types of gear, including helms, belts, and boots, while a new Emanate feature transmits the effects of certain legendary powers and set bonuses equipped on the follower to the player’s character. There’s also been a revamp of a variety of follower skills, and followers will be available for seasonal and non-seasonal play.
As for gear sets, Firebird Finery for Wizards, Bones of Rathma for Necromancers, and Gears of Dreadlands for Demon Hunters are seeing a number of adjustments, primarily on the buff side for the Wizard and Necromancer sets and a nerf for the Demon Hunter set. Finally, Greater Rift solo leaderboards now contain additional filters to sort by, bringing seven total filters available by class.
