Diabloii.Net Site Improvements


Posted 24 Apr 2016 by at 21:30 GMT

Today we have spent some time refining search functionality here on Diabloii.Net and the forums. As the site and forums have been running so long, the search options tended to get bogged down with the sheer amount of data. Forum searches could take quite some time to return a query. The site content search also had stacks of posts to filter through to find a keyword.

Now the forums search is practically instant and will also give better results thanks to some work in the back-end and additions to the forum code. The same goes for the site, search terms will now come back quickly and nicely highlighted.

We hope these tweaks help you find stuff you’re looking for a lot easier.

Over the weekend, Blizzard has been ferrying attendees around PAX East in a joint Overwatch promotion with UBER called UBERwatch. One of the souped-up vehicles, a super truck,  driven by Overwatch character Solider 76 was involved in a prang with a civilian vehicle and Gearbox’ Randy Pitchford caught it as it happened and Tweeted:

“Just left PAX East and out full house Main Theater show to see a monster truck branded with competitive game run over a civilian car.

“You cannot make this up. They just smashed into the side of the civilian car. What a nightmare for everyone.

“I offered to help, but they had it sorted. Fortunately, no one was hurt. I feel bad for the victims, but also the PR team and dev team.”

Pitchford snapped photo of the vehicle that was hit which you can see the break.

Diablo 3 Season 6 Preview


Posted 21 Apr 2016 by at 19:54 GMT

As another Season is about to begin, Blizzard has posted their Diablo 3 Season 6 preview which includes details of changes to Haedrig’s Gift and new and updated Conquests.

Patch 2.4.1 is live on the PTR for testing and headed soon to live realms. For our Seasonal heroes out there, we’ve prepared a two-part guide to Season 6 so you can roll right into a fresh start on day one.

Season 6 will begin with the usual updates to Season Journey objectives, Conquest rotations, and rewards. We’ll tackle rewards later, but in the meantime, here are the challenges you can expect to face in Season 6!


Season Journey Updates

We’re now settling into a format for Seasons that we’ve grown comfortable with as both players and developers. With each Season going forward, objectives will rotate to create a fresh experience.

Similarly, the steps that unlock Haedrig’s Gift, a special bundle of Set items unlocked throughout the Season Journey, will differ slightly with this season. Starting in Chapter 3, three of the objectives in the Season Journey will reward you with one of these bundles, each containing two (or in some cases, three) pieces of one of your class sets.

Here are the objectives that will reward set pieces for Season 6:

  • Chapter III: Reach Level 70
  • Chapter IV: Defeat Izual at level 70 on Torment II or higher
  • Chapter IV: Complete a Greater Rift Level 20 solo.

Note that all players will only earn one full class set per Season, including both Hardcore and Non-Hardcore Seasonal characters, so choose wisely! Here are the sets you can expect to receive early on in your adventures for Season 6:

  • Barbarian: Legacy of Raekor
  • Crusader: Armor of Akkhan
  • Demon Hunter: Embodiment of the Marauder
  • Monk: Inna’s Reach
  • Witch Doctor: Zunimassa’s Haunt
  • Wizard: Delsere’s Magnum Opus

New and Updated Conquests

Conquests continue to be a staple of the Seasonal experience, and we’re bringing back a few Conquests from Season past for Season 6, updated to reflect increases in set and class power over time:

Is the name of your game speed, speed, speed? Then you might want to focus on Conquests like Speed Demon and Boss Mode, which challenge you to complete tasks under strict time limits. Perhaps you’re more of a lone wolf and can’t wait to push past Greater Rift Level 75 with Divinity or Lionhearted? You may be eager to put your nose to the grinder with leveling three Legendary Gems to 65 with On a Good Day. Or maybe it’s the monsters you wish to put through the grinder by massacring 350 of them in a Cursed Chest event with Curses!

There’s plenty to do, and no matter your flavor for firepower, glory awaits.
