Suggestion: Make season legs only drop in season.(1)Category: GeneralJune-5-2014 7:51 AM PDT (6 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
I think that making season-only legendaries enter the item pool after the season is a bad idea. By doing this you are making the seasons mainly optional because people know they can just get the item after the season. I feel these legendaries should be special but also hard to find. Getting a legendary that only drops for a few months before disappearing forever would feel very special and would create item diversity between people who were able to find these legendaries in the limited window they exist. This also makes the seasons mandatory and will make more people participate in them. I hope someone from Blue Posts sees this because I feel this is a better way to go about implementing the season legendaries and I think if you ask more people they would agree.

Its been a pain trying to link this info, as it has never been directly stated in a Blue post, so I totally understand why you had no idea. ;)


I suppose I can fix that. :P

Just to confirm our current plans with Seasons, as we've stated in earlier interviews/livestreams (though bear in mind that as with any current plans, this is subject to change):
  • Seasons will be optional. Similar to how you flag a character as Hardcore, when you create a character, you have the option to also make them Seasonal.
  • There will be Seasonal Legendaries.
    • At the end of a Season, Seasonal Legendaries will roll over into the non-Season loot pool.
    • New Seasonal Legendaries will be available for Seasonal characters once the new Season begins.


We're not quite ready to share the finer details on 2.1 or Seasons just yet, but as we get nearer the 2.1 PTR, you can be sure we'll have more info to share. ;)

To be very clear here, that means that we'll be able to find Seasonal Legendaries on regular (softcore/hardcore) characters after that season has expired, correct?

Correct!

Not just that we'll be able to keep the Seasonal Legendaries we found during the season.

That too!
