Patch 2.4.2 Focused Feedback - Season Journey(2)June-13-2016 6:01 PM PDT (1 year ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
This Focused Feedback thread is dedicated to revisions being made to the Season Journey.

Here are the changes that have been made to the Season Journey:

  • Haedrig's Gift is no longer awarded for specific Seasonal achievements; the bags are now rewarded for the completion of Chapters II, III, and IV.
  • Achievements requiring timed Nephalem Rift runs have been retuned.
  • Overall difficulty has been shifted around; easier, more tutorial-based achievements are in Chapters I-IV while more challenging tasks can be found in Slayer and beyond.
  • All Rift-related achievements have been updated to include all difficulties, including Torment XI-XIII.

For more details on what changes have been made in Patch 2.4.2, please see our PTR Patch Notes.

Here are a few questions to get you started:
  • What is the furthest you have previously completed a Season Journey?
  • How many Season Journeys have you previously completed?
    • By comparison, how difficult is it to complete the new Season Journey?
  • How does pacing feel when moving from Chapters I-IV to Slayer and beyond?
  • How the the achievements that include Torment XI-XIII feel? Are they difficult?

With that said, thank you to all our PTR participants. Your feedback is appreciated and continues to be integral to our design and iteration process. Happy testing!

Please Note: In order to facilitate focused feedback, posts in this thread that are not relevant to the topics listed above will be deleted. Please create a new thread for your concerns if they are outside the above topics. Thank you!

Patch 2.4.2 Focused Feedback - Season Journey(52)July-1-2016 3:09 PM PDT (12 months ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
A big thank you to everyone who took the time to check out the Season 7 Journey, test the changes and provide feedback! After considering the adjustments mentioned in Wyatt’s post last week and reviewing the feedback provided, we have some changes for Season Journey that you can expect to see in the next PTR patch.

Slayer
  • Now requires Greater Rift 30 (down from 35).
  • Champion
  • Now requires Greater Rift 40 (down from 50).
  • Normal rift timer increased to 7 minutes from 6 minutes.
  • Destroyer
  • Now requires Greater Rift 50 (down from 60).
  • Conqueror
  • Now requires Greater Rift 60 (down from 70).
  • Guardian
    • Now requires Greater Rift 70 (down from 80).
    • Azmodan timer has been adjusted to 20 seconds (up from 15).

    Torment XIII is definitely a step up from Torment X in regards to difficulty and it’s our goal to take that and player power into account. Conqueror and Guardian level achievements are intended to be the most intense, but also the most rewarding. That said, we did feel that the Greater Rift requirements were a bit too demanding and have been adjusted. In regards to the time requirements for normal Nephalem Rifts in Conqueror and Guardian, those will remain unchanged for the time being. Some players, classes and builds may have an easier time than others completing those achievements while others may find it more to their liking to find a group to speed things up.

    Another common concern was the legendary gem requirements may be too easy, which is a very valid point! However, with the addition of augmenting legendary gem requirements, we wanted to avoid making the gem requirements feel too grindy. Some achievements will be difficult and challenging while others will require careful planning and time, all of which are goals for Season Journey.

    Again, a big thanks to everyone participating in the PTR and please, keep the feedback for Season Journey and 2.4.2 as a whole coming!
