The new gems and some of the new legendarys very likely will be Season 3 only.


This is correct. The Season 3 Legendary items went into the 2.2.0 PTR patch without being flagged as Seasonal items, so they are currently dropping for everyone regardless of which game mode you are in. Of course, this will change for when the patch goes live, but in the meantime, it allows a greater pool of folks the opportunity to try them out and test them. :)

Why weren't the "Bane of the Strickin" and the "Iceblink" new legendary gems dropping for everyone then?


The exception is actually the Legendary gems, which should be flagged as Seasonal only. I'm checking into Mutilation and some of the other details; as soon as I have additional clarification, I'll be happy to share it!

The following items are intended to be Seasonal only for Season 3. Note that not everything on this list is currently flagged as a Season 3 item at this time. This is a bug and should be fixed in a future PTR patch:

  • Dead Man's Legacy (rework)
  • Dread Iron (rework)
  • Nagelring (rework)
  • Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac (rework)
  • Hammer Belt (Placeholder Name)
  • Ranslor's Folly
  • Little Man's Finger
  • Spirit Guards
  • Iceblink (Legendary gem)
  • Mutilation Guard (Legendary gem)
  • Bottomless Potion of Amplification

As with previously reworked Seasonal items, once patch 2.2.0 launches, these items will no longer drop in non-Seasonal games and will remain removed from the non-Seasonal Legendary pool until Season 3 concludes.

On a related note, we will be removing Bane of the Stricken from Patch 2.2.0. We're not happy with its current implementation. It's possible we may revisit it in a later patch.
