  3. Diablo 3 on the Switch? One of the biggest rumors buzzing around the Diablo community at the moment is the possibility of Diablo 3 coming to the Nintendo Switch. The rumor has been shared around the web across various news sites and even got a response from Blizzard in the form of a cryptic tweet. But Blizzard has since gone on record to say that they did not mean the tweet as an acknowledgement of a Switch version in development and that they have no official announcements for Diablo 3 at this time. A few days later, a report from Eurogamer seems to confirm that the game is indeed in production, though a official announcement appears to be several months away. This back and forth are they, aren't they has, naturally, sparked lots of conversation. With that in mind I wanted to dive in and give my thoughts on what features I’d like to see included if Diablo 3 does ever arrive for the Switch. The Necromancer and Eternal Collection Currently, new copies of Diablo 3 available for the PS4 and Xbox One come in the form of the "Eternal Collection", which contains the base game, Reaper of Souls, and the Rise of the Necromancer pack. I would expect nothing less from the Switch Version, so no extra DLC here: just one purchase for all of the currently available Diablo 3 content. Nintendo Easter Eggs? When Diablo 3 was originally announced for consoles, Blizzard had a load of special pre-order bonus items exclusively for the Playstation 3 based off of popular Sony IPs, namely Journey and Uncharted. Blizzard would later go on to release more exclusives for the launch of the Ultimate Evil Edition for the PS4 with the Shadow of the Colossus transmog and the chance of encountering a special Last of Us themed ‘Clicker’ Rift. Could we see Blizzard repeat this pattern for the Switch? There are certainly tons of possibilities. A Legend of Zelda themed transmog of Link’s tunic? A Chain Chomp cosmetic pet? Samus inspired shoulders and helm to go alongside the Starcraft transmogs? A chance for Whimsydale/Whimsyshire to spawn with Koopas and Goombas? A Master Sword legendary drop? With so many iconic IPs a version of Diablo on a Nintendo console would have an incredible selection of transmog, cosmetic, or thematic items to offer. Diablo On The Go All console versions of Diablo 3 offer an offline mode of play. If the Switch rumor does come true, Diablo 3 would be the first in the series to go mobile and be able to be played anywhere. Running a rift while waiting between classes, finishing some bounties while on your lunch break from work, or you could even play while flying. Local Wireless Play - The Next Level of Couch Co-Op The portable nature of the Switch would make this feature a sure bet. One of the original intentions for the console port of Diablo 3 was the idea of the couch co-op. Couch co-op, aka local multiplayer, is simply having multiple players all play on the same screen in the same room. Blizzard’s commitment to couch co-op lead to many changes in the game, from Necromancer corpse usage on consoles, the ability for multiple players to enter Set Dungeons, and even for the multiplayer Challenge Rifts. The Switch’s local wireless play feature is the next logical step for couch co-op. Rather than every player playing on the same screen, a player could play on their individual Switch while still being linked in a party with players playing nearby on their own Switches. Any place with a wifi connection could be an instant group to play with friends. Local play would combine all the best aspects of the Switch’s mobile nature and Blizzard’s commitment to the multiplayer experience. Imagine putting together Bounty runs or Rift groups while hanging out at BlizzCon. Gameplay Improvements The Ultimate Evil Edition launched in 2014 and there hasn’t been any major mechanical overhauls to the console version of the game since then. A Switch version would be the perfect opportunity for Blizzard to revisit the game and make improvements. One of the biggest weaknesses of the console versions of Diablo 3 are the controls. Many of the best builds on PC don’t translate well to console due to many skills having fixed targeting. As an example, very few Wizards on console use any type of Meteor build due to the awkwardness of targeting the skill when surrounded by enemies, while easier to use skills like Energy Twister dominate the Wizard leaderboards. The simplified targeting system on consoles make Diablo 3 feel like an almost completely different game at higher level Greater Rifts. The Switch version could bring the higher level experiences closer to one another through an overhaul of the control scheme of the game. Parting Thoughts: A Sign of Things to Come? Diablo 3 on consoles seemed like a huge risk for Blizzard. It was their first console game in over a decade and it was a litmus test of sorts to see if there was any interest for Blizzard titles on platforms other than PC. With the success of Diablo 3 and then Overwatch on the Playstation and Xbox, a Switch version of Diablo 3 is definitely in the realm of possibility. A Switch version of Diablo 3 could be a good way to gauge consumer interest in Blizzard titles on the Switch as well. If the game sold well, Blizzard might look to bring over Overwatch or other future titles to the Switch as well. What do you think about the possibility of Diablo 3 on the the Switch? What new features would you like to see included? Let us know in the comments below. Neinball (@NeinballGamer) is a content creator for Diablo Fans and a horadrim in training.

  6. Public Game Matchmaking Issues: A new bug that causes public games to not fill beyond two players has arisen in Season 13. Nevalistis has taken to the official forums to address the issue: Originally Posted by Nevalistis (Official Post) Hey all, We are aware of an issue where games open to a public are not filling beyond two players. While we have no immediate update at the moment, we are working hard to investigate the cause and will provide updates as they become available in this thread. In the meantime, we highly recommend utilizing clans, communities, or your own friends list to help fill in games. While this is, by no means, a permanent solution, the beginning of a season is a very active time in the community and a great opportunity to meet and make new friends! In addition, we ask that you avoid creating additional threads on this topic; I’ve left this thread open for any needed detail reports or for players to help find groups among each other.

  7. Season 13: Season 13 has no new changes as far as class balance or items. The class meta remains primarily the same as the end of Season 12; however, expect builds to evolve and become more refined over the course of Season 13! If you find yourself getting bored with the same meta, we suggest trying to play Hardcore to shake things up, if you don't already! Below, we've posted some of the top builds on DiabloFans for each class last season, and information on the Level With a Cause charity event! Season 13 begins at 5:00pm (KST/CET/PST for your region) on Friday February 23rd. Bluddshed has released a guide to help you get the best start to your season, including tips and tricks on how to level and gear very quickly! Level With a Cause: Level With a Cause is a reoccurring charity event that happens at the start of a season in Diablo 3. This event, originally conceived by Wolfcryer, unites the Diablo community in an effort to raise money for various charities! The first Level With a Cause was held on Thursday, July 20th 2017 with the start of Season 11. Twitch streamers and YouTubers from the Diablo community came together to raise money for St. Jude's Hospital, raising over seven thousand dollars! For the start of Season 13, Level with a Cause will occur this Friday, February 23rd - 25th. If you would like to support this charity event, check out some of the highlighted streamers below! They will be raising money for Save the Children. You can view a full list of participating streams here! Popular Builds from Season 12: These are some of the top builds for each class during season 12! This is not a conclusive list, but instead one that provides some variety on several class builds.

  10. First Look At Season 13

    First Look At Season 13: An official blog has been posted giving us our first glimpse into Season 13 which begins Friday, February 23rd at 5:00pm PST in NA, CET in Europe, and KST in Asia. This season looks to be a quiet one as far as changes and balance; however, we do get an awesome Inarius themed portrait and bloody teddy bear... I call it the murder bear. You can view the full official blog below: Originally Posted by Blizzard Entertainment (Official Post) Season 13 begins soon! For those among you who enjoy the fresh start a Season brings, we wanted to give you a glimpse of what to expect before you race out the gate. New Cosmetic Rewards As per tradition, Season 13 will introduce new cosmetic rewards, obtainable by progressing through the Season Journey. In addition to the Helm and Shoulders slots of the exclusive Conqueror Set, a brand-new series of portraits themed around Imperius will be available. Those who enjoy collecting pets will also be pleased to see a new arrival—Blaine’s Bear! While traveling together, you may be tempted to ask him why he’s covered in blood, or try removing the sharp objects he carries around. We strongly advise against this. Season Journey Rewards If you’ve been playing the past few Seasons diligently and reached Conqueror in the Season Journey each time, you’ve accrued a few extra stash tabs. Players who have not yet earned a total of four stash tabs via the Season Journey can still unlock an additional one by completing the following tasks at the Conqueror tier: Complete a Torment XIII Rift in under 5 minutes Complete Greater Rift 60 solo Kill Greed on Torment XIII Kill Cydaea on Torment XIII in under 15 seconds Reforge a Legendary or Set item Augment an Ancient item with a Level 50 or greater Legendary Gem Level three Legendary Gems to 55 Complete two Conquests Seasonal Conquests Speaking of Conquests, we’re rotating those, too! Love going fast? Sprinter and Speed Racer will be making a return. Enjoy testing your mettle in Greater Rifts? Divinity and Lionhearted are also coming back. If you’d rather max out your kill count with Cursed Chests, Curses! and Stars Align will be right up your alley. Those who enjoy seeing how far they can go without Set Items will get a kick out of The Thrill and Super Human. Finally, if you’re keen to show off your mastery of Set Dungeons, Masters of the Universe and Masters of Sets will be available once more. Haedrig’s Gift Finally, just as before, you’ll get a shiny new Class Set courtesy of Haedrig’s Gift for completing certain chapters in the Season Journey. We’ve listed the available Sets below. For those new to Seasons, here’s how it works: Completing Chapters 2, 3, and 4 of the Season Journey will reward you with three Haedrig’s Gifts. Each Gift contains a few pieces from one of your Class Sets. Players can only unlock one Class Set in this manner per Season across Hardcore and Non-Hardcore, so choose wisely! The set you will receive depends on the Class of the character you’re playing when you open each Haedrig’s Gift. To collect a full Class Set, you’ll need to open all three on the same character. Here are the sets granted by Haedrig’s Gift in Season 13: Barbarian – Might of the Earth Crusader – Thorns of the Invoker Demon Hunter – The Shadow’s Mantle Monk – Monkey King’s Garb Necromancer – Grace of Inarius Witch Doctor – Raiment of the Jade Harvester Wizard – Firebird’s Finery Frequently Asked Questions Q: When does Season 13 start? A: Season 13 begins Friday, February 23 at 5:00 p.m. PST in North America, 5:00 p.m. CET in Europe, and 5:00 p.m. KST in Asia. For time zone conversion, see this site. Q: When are the non-Seasonal Leaderboards being wiped? A: Non-Seasonal Leaderboards are tied to what we call “Eras,” each of which lasts about 6–12 months. The most recent era began November 9. For more information on Eras, please see this post. Q: What will happen to older Seasonal and Era records? A: Starting with Season 10, we removed old personal bests from Season 1. When Season 13 arrives, we will remove old personal bests from Season 4, and so on. We will be doing the same for personal bests from the previous Era when the next one goes live. Seasonal Leaderboard records are not being cleared and will remain archived both in game and on our website. Season 13 is almost here! What are your goals for this Season?

  12. PTR Server Slam

    PTR Server Slam: A new PTR will be available today (February 8th), and Blizzard needs help testing out some more optimizations! You can view the full blog and details below: Originally Posted by Blizzard Enterainment (Official Post) Greetings, nephalem! We’re working on a series of behind-the-scenes optimizations for Diablo III, and we need your help. Since we don’t want to risk breaking anything, we need to test these changes thoroughly before we deploy them to the live servers. Join us starting today, February 8, for a special PTR that includes these changes. We’re looking for reports of login or character display issues that might arise during this PTR. We encourage all players to participate. Download that PTR and hop right in! A few important notes: There is no new content included on this PTR. While you will be able to copy your existing characters, we will also be activating the 2000% Legendary Find buff to encourage participation. As a reminder, any progress made on the PTR does not transfer over to your live account. Since this PTR is exclusively focused on identifying and fixing bugs related to the issues noted above, we will only be opening the Bug Report forum during the testing period. Over the course of the PTR, server performance may vary. This PTR will only be available for a limited time, and we’d greatly appreciate all the help we can get in testing it quickly and with as many participants as possible! We hope you have some time to help us out. If you need more information on how to participate on the PTR, visit our FAQ or see below for details. How to Participate PTR Character Copy Thank you, nephalem, and we’ll see you in Sanctuary! HOW TO PARTICIPATE: To participate in the public test, you must have a Diablo III game license attached your Battle.net account in good standing (i.e. it hasn't been suspended or banned). In addition, you will also need to download and install the Battle.net desktop app if you have not already done so. Step 1: Create a PTR account. To create a PTR account, log in to Battle.net Account Management and double-click on your Diablo III game license; this will bring you to the game management page. On this page, click "Create a PTR account." If you've participated in any previous Diablo III PTR (including the Reaper of Souls beta), the "Create PTR account" button may not appear. This is because you've already created a PTR account and can therefore skip this step. Step 2: Once you have created a PTR account, installed the Battle.net desktop, and logged in with your Battle.net credentials, select "Diablo III" from the main menu on the left-hand side of the application. Step 3: On the Diablo III screen, there is a drop-down menu right above the "Play" button (note that this may say "Install" if you do not have Diablo III currently installed). Select "PTR: Diablo III" from this drop-down menu before proceeding. Step 4: You should now have the option to install and play the patch 2.4.2 PTR. The 2.4.2 PTR is available in all supported languages, and accounts from all regions are eligible to participate. PTR CHARACTER COPY: The option to copy your existing Diablo III characters from your live account to the PTR will be available and can be done directly through the PTR client. However, only one region per account can be copied at a time. So, if you choose to copy characters from your account in a different region, any previously copied PTR characters will be lost. Step 1: Log into the live game and then log out. Step 2: Log into PTR client and create a level 1 character. After you're done, return to the main character screen. Step 3: Click on the "PTR Copy" button located in the upper right-hand corner. (The PTR Copy button will not appear in-game until you have created a new level 1 character.) Step 4: Select your region. Step 5: Click "Copy." This will copy all characters on your account from the selected region. Step 6: You will be disconnected from the PTR client. Step 7: Log back in. Your copied characters will be available for play. Please note that you can only copy characters from one gameplay region at a time. If you choose to copy characters from a different region, any previously copied PTR characters will be lost. In addition, you can only copy characters over to your PTR account once every 24 hours. Attempting to copy characters before this cooldown is up will result in an error. As this is a test server, please anticipate uneven game performance, and note that restarts and downtime may occur without warning. View the full article

  14. One of the hallmarks of DiabloFans is that you, our faithful readers, have developed a wide array of ways to play Diablo III. Through the utilization of our Build creation tools, it is very possible that a build you shared with the community has supplied someone with countless additional hours of gameplay and enjoyment. In this article, we'd like to take a moment to celebrate some of the more popular builds on the site and kick off 2018 in style.

  15. With rumors of the "Unannounced Project" and Diablo 4 circulating around the community, we have to stop and ask — what comes next? We're going to take a look back at many of the loose ends and unfinished storylines from previous games to speculate about where future entries in the franchise could go. The Sisterhood Eirena lived during the times of the Mage Clan Wars. Her and her sisters were the servants of a powerful Vizjerei mage, who's books they used to teach themselves magic. The sisters would eventually learn that their master was summoning demons from the Burning Hells. Eirena and the others resolved to stop their master from completing his rituals. While their master was distracted during his rites, Eirena and the others attacked and succeeded at stopping the summoning, preventing more demons from entering their world. But it came at great cost. While the sisters defeated their master and his minions, they were cursed with the corrupted mage's dying breath. The sisters were brought to the edge of death, their life forces quickly fading. Words of the Prophet It was at this time that the mysterious entity known as the Prophet appeared and saved the sisters. He offered to teach them the ways of magic and train them to face a great evil he foresaw would come at some point in the future. After recruitment and training the burgeoning sisterhood was dubbed the Hands of the Prophet and their mission made clear. They were to be placed in a magical trance and made to slumber until the appointed time that they would be called upon to save Sanctuary with the help of a great hero. After roughly 1,500 years, Eirena awoke from her slumber and found all of her sisters dead, with signs of a demonic attack and a great battle having taken place in their sanctum. Undeterred, Eirena searched the deserts around Caldeum until she crossed paths with the Nephelam, the prophesied hero she was destined to find. During the battle against the Prime Evil in the High Heavens, Eirena would come across a dying angel that gave her an ancient document that had been written by the Prophet. In the document she found that the Prophet was actually an angel and acted in secret to protect Sanctuary, for he saw the great promise within humanity. However, the identity of the Prophet was still a mystery. Was he the dying angel that gave her the scroll? Or some other figure lost to time? After this encounter Eirena and the Nephalem would defeat the Prime Evil Diablo and save the High Heavens and Sanctuary in the process. But not all would stay peaceful for long. Soon a new threat would endanger Sanctuary in the form of the angel Malthael. Eirena would again join forces with the Nephalem to protect their world. The Whispers in Chaos During Malthael's attack on Sanctuary, Eirena would begin to hear whispers from her long lost sisters. Through scrying, Eirena was finally able to discern the source of the voices, Sister Lysa. Somehow Lysa still lived and was calling to her from the realm of Pandemonium. While venturing through the broken realm, Eirena encountered the souls of her dead sisters. They began to warn her of what lay ahead and to give clues to what happened to them so long ago. At the heart of the Lair of the Prophet, Eirena encountered Lysa and learned the truth of what the Prophet had asked of the sisterhood. Unbeknownst to Eirena, she had been chosen as the one that would fight against the Great Evils after her sleep, and the rest of the sisterhood was given the choice to leave or to sacrifice their lives to allow Eirena to survive until the coming of the End of Days. All of the sisters agreed to these terms, save one, Lysa. Lysa was furious that she had not been the chosen one. In her pride, she made a pact with demons to try and destroy the Hands of the Prophet. The rest of the sisterhood awoke as they were beset by the demonic horde and, as predicted, gave their lives so that Eirena would live. Lysa somehow survived the encounter and sought revenge on Eirena, but the corrupted Enchantress proved no match against the Nephalem and Eirena's combined might. The Truth Unveiled After defeating Lysa, the Prophet reached out to Eirena to explain what he asked of her sisters, telling her she should view their sacrifice as a gift and not a burden. After returning from Pandemonium Eirena resolved to continue the Prophet's work and rebuild the sisterhood. But this new order would not sleep for centuries at a time. Instead, they would remain vigilante and pass down their knowledge from generation to generation. This new Hands of the Prophet would actively watch over and protect humanity without having to sacrifice their own. Questions still remain. Were the words of the Prophet a message from the past or did the Prophet still live? Who exactly was the Prophet and is he still working behind the scenes to save Sanctuary? Tyrael seemed to recall someone in his past that went by the name of the Prophet. Could he be referring to Inarius, who posed as the Veiled Prophet during the Sin Wars? Could Inarius still be alive, chained and tormented in Hell, looking after the safety of humanity, his legacy? And what of Eirena's new order? Will she be able to rebuild the Hands of the Prophet in the wake of Malthael's attack? Eirena's story dives deep into the history of Sanctuary and could potentially involve some of the major players in the creation of our world. Her quest to learn the identity of the Prophet could lead her back to the father of the Nephalem, Inarius, and could even be traced back to the Worldstone. We will have to wait and see if Blizzard has plans to answer these remaining questions, whether in Diablo 4 or elsewhere.
