Thanks for sharing the preview for patch 2.2.0, Agmo!

I'll be really curious to hear people's thoughts once they've had the chance to try out the new content on the PTR – including what they like about it, what they don’t like about it, and what suggestions for improvement they have. I’m sure the new items will generate some cool new build ideas, both in our class forums and elsewhere.

For those reading who may have missed it, you can get a good overview of what's coming in the PTR at the above link from Diablo Fans or in our original blog post.

Will the new sets be available in season only?

We don't have plans right now to make the three new Sets (Delsere’s Magnum Opus, Wrath of the Wastes, and Unhallowed Essence) coming in patch 2.2.0 exclusive to Season 3. That said, we're still determining which of the new Legendary items will be Seasonal to start.

Assuming the above is still the case when patch 2.2.0 goes live (which we're aiming to do between Season 2 and Season 3), then you'll be able to find the new Set items regardless of whether you're playing a Seasonal character.

I was getting so hyped reading this preview... Then I see this and other blue posts like it about how this isn't happening until, at the very least, this season that just began a few days ago ends. So 5+ months from now.

Hype insta-gone.

We mentioned during our recent Tavern Talk that we'd like for Season 2 to be shorter than our inaugural Season, and Nevalistis confirmed our intent here as well as on Reddit Diablo. You'll definitely have a shorter wait this time before the Season ends.

On the plus side, you'll have the advantage of being able to dig into what's included in patch 2.2.0 on the PTR, figure out what you like (and don't), and determine what build and gear you'll be running once Season 3 starts. When it does, you'll already have a mental list of what gear you need, and be ahead of the game fresh out of the gate.

Just my .02. Hope it helps, Hartagon!

Let's hope the set make Wiz competitive in terms of dps

We've heard several players express the desire for Wizards to have more build possibilities, in both solo and group play, especially for higher Greater Rifts.

With the PTR for patch 2.2.0 coming up, and players trying out new Set items (such as Delsere's Magnum Opus), we're hoping to see some engaging and (ultimately) high-end viable builds for that class. With our community's helpful theorycrafters pitching in, the new builds people discover are bound to become even better.

Even so, our goal of providing items that will increase build diversity is never truly done. After all, Diablo III is an ever-evolving game, and (to that end) we intend to keep adding items that will encourage players to explore new builds.

As Wyatt mentioned early in our most recent Tavern Talk livestream, the class currently considered the best can change, even multiple times, in the span of a single Season. Regardless of which class is currently considered best, our goal remains the same: create more fun and engaging play styles for players of every class to enjoy.

Please improve Firebird during PTR too :) Firebird is kind of boring. Fire Spenders should be much stronger while using Firebird :)

We’re actually making changes to the Firebird’s Finery set in patch 2.2.0, and we’d love to get your feedback on those we currently have planned. In short, the 4 piece set bonus is replacing the 2 piece set bonus, and we created a new 4 piece bonus in place of the old one. There aren’t any changes currently planned for the 6 piece set bonus (it will remain the same).

Here’s some additional detail from our PTR patch notes:

Firebird's Finery
  • Has been redesigned
  • (2) Set Bonus
  • When you die, a meteor falls from the sky and revives you. This effect has a 300 second cooldown
  • Bug Fixes
    Fixed an issue that prevented the cooldown debuff from being removed on death
  • (4) Set Bonus
    Your Fire Signature Spells cause up to 3 enemies to explode, dealing 250% weapon damage as Fire to enemies within 10 yards

Also, as a quick reminder, there are two places where we’re collecting feedback on upcoming changes (as people are trying them out on the PTR):


Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the changes coming in the patch soon, Doombringer. :D
