Blizzard on Season Legendaries – PTR Seasons are “mini seasons”

Posted 20 Jul 2014 by

Now that the “seasons” are underway on the PTR, Blizzard posted a few notes regarding the Seasonal Legendaries and this PTR testing season which which is a “mini season” which will likely be restarted as testing progresses.

Please don’t tell me they are going to run an entire Season on PTR…

Nah. We’ll host what are effectively “mini Seasons,” but we won’t actually run a full Season (i.e. for the duration we intend to have one run in the live game) during the PTR. We’re also going to start and end a Season likely more than once during this public test. The goal here is to make sure both processes run smoothly, so we’ll want to test out each function a few times before the patch goes live.

Is the Ramalandi’s gift considered a seasonal legendary or will it be added to the non-seasonal server once the patch goes live along with greater rifts?

Ramaladni’s Gift is not a Seasonal Legendary item and will be available in all games modes (Normal, Hardcore, and Seasonal) once patch 2.1.0 goes live.

Seasonal legendaries are indeed dropping, and the Monk gloves and Wizard wand are indeed of little value and will not add to build diversity.

Thanks for the report! We’ll follow up with our QA and engineering teams. Could be a bug, could be that they were enabled a little early. We’ll let you know.

Since it’s PTR, it’s likely not a big deal that these items dropping right now, so please feel free to use them if you find one. If you encounter any bugs picking them up or using them, though, be sure to drop a line in our PTR Bug Report forum:

Similarly, if you’ve got any feedback on said Legendaries, we’d love to hear from you in our PTR Legendary Feedback thread:
