Patch 2.4.0 Preview - Items and Sets

Along with an issue of extracted powers in the Kanai's Cube disappearing

Diablo III Patch 2.4.0 - New and Updated Sets
A major part of the upcoming Patch 2.4 are the over 50 new Legendary items and powers, along with a slew of revamped Sets. The latest patch preview provides a look at those new and updated Legendary items and Sets, with a video showing off the power of the revamped class Sets. A recent developer Twitter discussion also delves into graphical changes in the patch, to help players more clearly see important monster actions.

Patch 2.4.0 Legendary Items & Sets
The items section in the patch 2.4 PTR patch notes lists the many changes and additions to items in the upcoming patch: new Legendary powers for old items, entirely new Legendary items, and substantial overhauls of many class Sets. Unlike previous Seasons, in Season 5 none of the items will be Season-only, so they will all be available to all heroes once the patch is released.

Patch 2.4.0 is currently on the Public Test Realm, and we’re introducing over fifty new Legendary items and powers for you to collect. Here’s a first look at some of the incredible new loot coming soon in Patch 2.4.0!

Please keep in mind that the PTR is still active, and there may be more changes in store before these items arrive on live servers for Patch 2.4.0. Keep an eye on our latest PTR Patch Notes for more information.

Updated Sets

Several class sets are receiving significant revisions in Patch 2.4.0, including a couple that are expanding from 4 to 6 pieces, like the Thorns of the Invoker and The Shadow’s Mantle. 

Other sets, like Armor of Akkhan or Firebird’s Finery, are receiving a bit more power to make them more comparable to other high-performance options. 

While some sets are simply receiving adjustments, like the addition of new skills to their bonuses or adjustments to damage values, others are being completely redesigned. 

New and Updated Legendary Items

Patch 2.4.0 will also have a ton of new and updated Legendary items. While some are designed to augment the class sets we’ve redesigned or revisited, there are plenty aimed to enhance class skills that previously lacked complementary Legendaries.

That’s not all—for the players who want to seek power beyond 6-piece sets, we’ve got just the thing for you. The revisited Legacy of Nightmares (or the “no set” set, as we like to call it) allows you to make your wildest build dreams a reality, boosting damage and defense for every Ancient item equipped as long as no other set bonuses are equipped.

Seasonal Rewards

As you may have heard, we’re removing Season-exclusive Legendaries from the game. However, there are still plenty of rewards in store for those of you who enjoy starting fresh! By the time you complete Chapter 4 of the Season Journey, you will be guaranteed a full six-piece set for your class.

The featured class sets for Season 5

You will receive two pieces at a time via Haedrig’s Gift, a new reward mailed directly to you after completing certain milestones in the Season Journey. But be careful - each gift can only be earned once, so choose wisely when you open these precious packages! The items you receive will be determined by the class who opens them.

In addition to guaranteed class sets, we’re continuing our tradition of rewarding cosmetics for Seasonal participation. Take a peek at the unique pet and portrait frames you can earn in Season 5!

These items (and plenty more) are headed your way in Patch 2.4.0, but you can test them right now by joining us on the PTR. We’ll see you there!

Graphical Updates in 2.4
A Twitter discussion with community manager Nevalistis and Diablo III developer John Yang touches on the visual changes coming to the Monk skill Exploding Palm. That is just one of the many graphical changes that will be seen with the patch, to help players focus more easily on the important information in the game.
