First look at what’s coming in Diablo 3 Season 13

Diablo 3 Season 13 gets underway on 23 February and Blizzard has now revealed what’s coming up in this new Season.

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

  1. Seasons in D3 are pretty useless, but it’s the best there is.

    If D3 would have a real Diablo design with trading, PVP, and a proper D2 style itemization and progression, then it would be a totally different story.

    I hope D4 will remove “Pets” from Diablo. IMO Pets don’t belong into Diablo, but are “cute” in WOW and other games etc. Pets, weird “portraits”, and other SNAFUS really take away from the “Diablo Atmosphere” in D3, so they clearly need to improve on this in D4. No more kiddy aspects with very poor and misplaced attempts at humor in all the wrong places.

    I would like D4 to allow us to bring our Mercs into multiplayer games like its normally possible in Diablo games. They could elaborate on Mercs so we could level them, fully gear them, specialize them etc. Mercs could be our real and useful “Pets”. They could then have big and difficult quest lines to unlock awesome Mercs.

    Also the endless difficulty and a “Leaderboard” linked to “Greater Rifts” needs to go away. It harmed D3 a lot IMO. in D2, a level 90 did not feel much weaker and much less powerful than a level 99 player, but being 99 was still “icing on the cake” and a clear E-peen symbol. Hope this comes back.

    They could have separate Leaderboards for various things:

    – Unregulated “Wild-West” PVP in the open world (with permanent opt-out system)
    – Regulated Arena PVP for 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 4v4
    – PVPVM “Monster Wave modes”
    – Leveling to 99
    – Achievement Leaderboards
    – etc.

    • Wait, so now you ARE critical of D3? Because you routinely jump on those of us who have been critical of it in the past and of Jay Wilson. Make up your mind.

      • Wrong. I have always been critical of D3 and the Dev-Team’s decisions and vision. However, that doesn’t mean that I will go ahead and attack one single person directly in a way that is highly primitive and inappropriate. I was critical of those user-comments in the past that attacked Jay Wilson directly as a person, rather than his mindset, decisions and ideas. Jay stepped into shoes that were not for him to fill and Josh did not “single handed” turn the “Ship around” around either (he was just a public figure to calm the mob’s perception).

        I think most of us can agree that most of us are pretty unhappy with D3 from the very beginning.

        In short, whoever steps into the Director role for D4, must thread lightly this time around. D4 can either safe and preserve the Diablo franchise by living up to it’s roots, or change it forever by moving into a new uncertain direction and thus abandoning all of the Diablo Fanbase for the sake of winning huge masses of casual players that come and go without a passion for Diablo.

        • Well D3 could have been a lot worse. It could have been Hellgate: London.

          • Hellgate London was much more ambitious and daring than D3 IMO. Hellgate London was simply ahead of its time in many ways when it launched.

            One of the problems with Hellgate were the same as with D3. The devs tried to appeal to EVERYONE (and to reach the biggest possible audience right at the start). Hellgate tried to be a shooter, an MMO, and a Action-RPG, but that meant they had to compete against WOW, all the Shooters and some of the best Action-Games out there. That’s an uphill battle and you need to have virtually endless funding if you want to be able to have good chances at “winning”.

            D3 tried to appeal to everyone, and arguably failed to appeal to almost everyone, because no demographic was fully happy. WOW players did not like D3, D2 players did not like D3, and newcomers and casuals are whining left and right that D3 is too hard and they cant find the gear they demand RIGHT NOW.

            D4 must win back “Diablo Fans” and treat them as their most important demographic. If they do a good job, those Diablo fans will do the rest and spread the word, and then everyone else will follow.

  2. I personally dont care about Botters as they don’t affect me (or anyone else IMO), but this one made me laugh lol:
