Blizzard announced the end date of Diablo 3 season 26 in late August, which also gives us a clear idea of when we can expect Diablo 3 season 27 to start. With some fans of the Fantasy game series and many prominent members of the Diablo community decided to quit Diablo Immortal as a result of its microtransactions and events schedule, many of them returning to Blizzard’s previous RPG game before the Diablo 3 season 27 release date.
Players are excited about the new seasonal update after PTR testing took place throughout July. The most notable feature of season 27 is a new item called Angelic Crucibles. These can be used to ‘sanctify’ any of your legendary items – a special process that automatically applies perfect ancient stats to the item’s mounts, and also adds a unique class-specific power from a list of three options per class .
Among the highlights of the PTR was the Barbarian’s Hammer of the Ancients, which was incredible for solo and group play. Necromancer’s Death Nova is also very strong, as is the Monk’s new Wave of Light blessed power. The Witch Doctor’s Bogadile build was also popular due to its ability to deal massive damage in a coordinated group using Mundunugu’s Regalia set.
The new Guardian armor is also very powerful in the PTR, giving players double the main stat bonuses of all equipped items for wearing just two pieces – making it a great set to wear early in the season, where most of your stats are going to come from your device. As your paragon rank increases, the bonuses will become less dramatic, but it’s still a great choice for early players or players who want to play more casually without grinding up to the highest levels.
When does Diablo III season 26 and Diablo III season 27 end?
Diablo III season 26 ends on August 21. We don’t currently have a confirmed date for the start of season 27, but the last few seasons have all started five days after the previous season ended. This means that we can be fairly confident that the start date of Diablo III season 27 is likely to fall on August 26 – although of course we can’t say for sure until Blizzard officially confirms it.
The release date of Diablo 4 is still a free way, so now is the perfect time to hop back into Blizzard on PC-the last action-RPG game. If Diablo Immortal is more your speed, we have the best Diablo Immortal legendary items and Diablo Immortal class tier list to help you get the most out of your time in Westmarch.
