At the moment, I’ve pretty much stuck to my guns about avoiding the current season and just focusing on my non-season characters. Since I really didn’t get much of a chance to experience the PTR magic find buff, I could not get the opportunity to test out the newer builds. Fortunately, I can experience everything in full since my hoarding has proven very fruitful.
Right now, I’ve been playing a mixture of season and non-season. Quite frankly, the seasonal items aren’t enticing enough for me to really commit my time in developing a new character at the moment, although I am leveling a barbarian. Most of the patch 2.2 has centered around the new sets for the most part and pushing those newer builds, which to me has lowered the importance of Season 3 compared to Season 2.
All day I eagerly anticipated getting home to get my hands on the new patch. Originally, I thought about hitting the gym but it rained so it pretty much provided me with a reasonable excuse to head straight home after work. For the most part, I had been reading about the patch through forum posts and watching streamers thus far, with a few moments of getting into the PTR. Despite a great of negativity, I still felt that the patch had some real high hopes for me.
Patch 2.2 is planned for today and will represent a fairly large content patch, mostly with regards to reworked legendary sets, new legendary sets and other items as well as some quality of life changes, goblins and a few new quests. Here’s some thoughts based on what I’ve read so far.
