Diablo 3 Season 30 Theme & Content

This section will be updated once more info becomes available. Blizzard is currently testing the following content on the PTR:

  • Solo Self Found: This is a new single player mode with unique Leaderboards where you can create a character and play the latest seasonal content. A hardcore version of this mode is available as well. We heavily recommend players experience the PTR in this mode if they are seeking a more challenging experience. Read on for more information about Solo Self Found.
  • New Season Theme Testing: We're looking to gather feedback on the Visions of Enmity seasonal theme.
  • Class Balance: To ensure that the most significant class changes receive an ample amount of attention, we'd love for you to focus testing and feedback on the balance changes to the CrusaderDemon Hunter, and Witch Doctor class.
  • PTR-unique buffs will be active to help you on your journey: increased experience gains, and double Blood Shard drops. You can also buy new gear for testing from the special PTR vendor, Djank Mi'em, who will exchange Blood Shards for class-specific bags full of Legendary Items that we'd love for you to test!

Diablo 3 S30 Season's Journey

Players can expect the Season's Journey tasks and Conquests to complete. These are generally not linked to a theme. Check out the current season's Conquest examples below:

  • Guardian of Sanctuary: Finish a level 70 Nephalem Rift on Torment XIII within five minutes.
  • Gem of My Life: Level three Legendary Gems to level 55.
  • All I Do IS Win: Complete two Conquests this Season.
  • Disarm You: Kill Rakanoth at level 70 in under 15 seconds on Torment XIII difficulty.
  • Money Ain’t A Thang: Slay Greed on Torment XIII difficulty.

  • Power Amplification: Use Kanai’s Cube to augment an Ancient Legendary item with a level 50+ gem.

Lastly, we know there will be Haedrig's Gifts to unlock Class Set items.
