|New patch contents Seasonal only?||November-15-2014 2:54 PM PST (5 years ago)|
|Am I correct to assume that all the new contents meant for 2.1.2 will only be implemented for seasonal only, specifically season 2? i.e. Ancient legendary, New set items, New legendary etc?|
Is there anything for people who doesn't like or play seasonal to look forward to for the new patch?

|Some of the new content coming in patch 2.1.2 - including new Treasure Goblins and Ancient Items - will be available to all heroes, regardless of whether they're Seasonal. |
In addition, when Season 2 begins, Seasonal heroes will have a first crack at brand new Seasonal Legendary items (as well as a few existing Legendary items which have been updated with shiny new powers). The two new Legendary Gems that were announced at BlizzCon will also be Season-only, at least to start.
Just as a reminder: At the end of Season 2, all Seasonal Legendary items (including the new Legendary gems) will be rolled over into the non-Seasonal loot pool, at which point non-Seasonal heroes will also have access to them. The only items which are truly exclusive to Seasons are the Seasonal transmog appearances, new Conquests, and new banner rewards.

Does it mean the new wizard slow time set is also season only?
The new Set items shown during our BlizzCon panel are currently designed to be available to all heroes, regardless of whether they are Seasonal. That said, I do want to clarify that these items will not be coming in patch 2.1.2; they’re scheduled to arrive in a later patch (no date to share just yet).
So to clarify, older legendaries that are getting changes (Wormwood, Gungdo Gear) aren't getting retroactively changed, like The Furnace did?
Correct. For any Legendary items in patch 2.1.2 that are getting a new Legendary power, the old version will not retroactively have the new powers added.

Please give us some clarity here - existing legendaries that are getting changes (Wormwood, etc)... will they be available to non seasonal players or not? Do non seasonal players have to wait until the end of season 2? Your posts on this have NOT been clear.
But will the new Wormwood and Gungdo be exclusive to seasons?
Now that I reread it, I can see how my answer was confusing. Let me clarify a bit:
To find out more about which of these new items are Seasonal or non-Seasonal, be sure to visit our patch notes here.
Hope that makes more sense!
So apparently the new areas AND the new sets will all be in a future patch and this new patch will be:
/3 new season only legendary items (old legs redone)
/all other announced season 2 content
/new rift maps
/and two new legendary gems that are for season only to start.
That's looks correct.
Please keep in mind that the new Seasonal Legendary items (including the three new Legendary gems) will only appear in Season 2, and we are looking to start Season 2 sometime after patch 2.1.2 goes live. As a result, players won't begin to see these items drop right away.
What about the Raiment of a Thousand Storms set for Monks? The redesign isn't in the PTR, but that's the set I was most excited about testing out.
The change to the Raiment of a Thousand Storms Set will be coming in a later patch, along with the introduction of the new Set items shown at BlizzCon.
