  • Diablo 3: Season 24 Akkhan’s/Invoker Hybrid Bombardment Build for Patch 2.7.1

    I already have another write up of this build as a review, but I want to spend some time revising it to make use of Ethereals in the upcoming Season 24. In the previous build, Norvald’s Fervor is employed. However, Ethereals will be better than Norvald’s Fervor in my view, although the build itself won’t […]

  • Diablo 3: Season 24 Zunimassa Poison Dart Build for Patch 2.7.1

    From my experience on PTR, the Zunimassa Poison Dart build was one of the highest ranked Witch Doctor builds. The Ethereal provides a huge boost with a few key affixes on a well rolled one. While I have done another Zunimassa Pet build guide in the past, this one will exclusively focus on the Poison […]

  • Diablo 3: Season 24 Whirlwind Barbarian Guide for Patch 2.7.1

    Barbarians will see a slight alteration with the introduction of Ethereals during Season 24. Most Barbarians use a combination of the Wrath of the Wastes set and either Bul-Kathos’s Oath (for lower level farming) or Istvan’s Paired Blades for higher level Greater Rift pushing. The introduction of Ethereals will alter the meta slightly and this […]

  • Diablo 3: Season 24 My Plan For The Feat of Strength Ethereal Recollection

    As we draw towards the next Season 24, my ultimate goal will be to accomplish the Feat of Strength Ethereal Recollection to gain the Ethereal transmogrification effect. It does seem a bit daunting because of the lower drop rate for Ethereals than Ancients and the requirement of getting all 21, three per class, in order […]

  • Diablo 3: Season 24 PTR Thoughts

    With the Season 24 patch 2.7.1 PTR closed now and having given all classes a test run (though not all builds), I decided to put together some thoughts on the upcoming Season 24 as Season 23 was announced to be ending on July 18th. This will include some builds I got to try, leveling I […]

  • Diablo 3: Season 23 Review

    Today, Blizzard announced the last day for Season 23 on July 18th. While no start date for Season 24 has been released, it is suspected that with Diablo 2 coming up in short order on 9/23/2021 we should be starting the new season on July 23rd which provides roughly 2 months of solid farming action […]

  • Diablo 3: Ideas For Improving Follower Emanate Pool

    A friend and I discussed the idea of useless or under utilized but cool legendary item effects. With the addition of Emanate to items, Followers gained a large buff to mostly utilitarian effects. There were a few that could be argued had major influence in the ability for one to push higher Greater Rifts but […]

  • Diablo 3: Season 24 Leveling Guide (Updated from Season 8)

    Over on Reddit, I found a post where a new player, who completed the Campaign mode for the first time, was struggling with Adventure Mode as a Crusader on Hard and Normal mode on Season 23. As someone who has participated in many Diablo 3 seasons in always leveling from the start a fresh toon […]

  • Diablo 3: Season 24 Patch 2.7.1 Haedrig Gift Set Thoughts

    So this might seem like a little bit of clickbait considering that Blizzard has yet to release Season 24’s Haedrig Gift sets. However, based on a chart of past seasons, I believe we can almost accurately predict which sets will be part of Haedrig’s Gift. So from that, I want to review which classes look […]

  • Diablo 3: Inna’s Mantra Build for Patch 2.7.1 (PTR)

    With the PTR coming out on Friday for patch 2.7.1, I decided to do some theory crafting for the monk as it’s seeing a major change to the Inna’s set and a few supporting items and skills. Right now, the build is looking like a minion build focused on the Fire Ally rune from Mystic […]
