Blizzard has unveiled Diablo 3’s Season 16, which launches today on PC, and tomorrow on Xbox One, PS4, and Switch, bringing with it new buffs, new cosmetics, and more.
On the buff front, Blizzard says all players will benefit from The Ring of Royal Grandeur for the duration of Season 16. Notably, as well as offering various stat adjustments, this reduces the number of items needed to benefit from your chosen class’ set bonuses by one, handily opening up a gear slot. “For the uninitiated,” explains Blizzard, “this means many classes may be able to combine different Class Set bonuses in new ways – or squeeze yet another Legendary power into their favorite builds.”
Elsewhere, players that opt to progress through Diablo 3’s latest Season Journey will be able to obtain a selection of new cosmetic rewards. There’s the Conqueror Set, consisting of Helm and Shoulder pieces, a new series of portrait frames “themed around the clarion call of adventure”, plus The Wings of Lempo. The latter is described as being “a cosmically rare drop”.
