Does any1 besides me have the problem with this shield? Ever since I’ve logged in today my shield does not have the x2 phalanx buff. Did they removed it permanently or it’s just a minor bug that it could be solved in hours?
Tsarnis: For now, this is intended. The legendary affix on the Amazonian Parma was removed intentionally, and the item itself will no longer drop on the PTR. I can’t say for sure whether or not it will return with the same legendary affix, a new affix, or even weather it will return to the game at all, but for now, the missing affix and the fact that it does not drop are intentional.
GUYS! CALM DOWN!
There is a new CRUSADER Shield: Unrelenting Phalanx!
It has the SAME effect (Phalanx now summons twice). BUT it is a CRUSADER Shield, which is WAY better for us! Since it can roll Phalanx Damage and CDR! Stop flaming, they just made it BETTER
Tsarnis: This is indeed correct. The legendary affix on the Amazonian Parma shield has been moved onto the new Unrelenting Phalanx crusader shield. Please do keep in mind that this is a PTR and that iteration on items, skills, and systems are still happening at a fairly rapid rate, so changes like this can occur.
Thanks again for the reports, everyone!
If you want easy reference, we’ve got all the Seasonal Legendaries compiled in a wiki article. It includes the changes and updates made to Season One legendaries in Season Two, such as the Monk gloves being removed and replaced with a better Monk weapon, etc. The Seasonal Legendary items are obviously still under construction, with several still awaiting an official name, but they all have interesting legendary affixes, and dozens of existing legendary items are getting new legendary affixes as well, in Patch 2.1.There are even a fair number of legendaries that are now (on the PTR) spawning with 5/1 or 5/2 primary/secondary affixes instead of the standard 4/2 ratio. This is seen in the current Live game on only a few of the bestest and most popular legs, such as Magefist, Ice Climbers, and The Barber. Those are still 5/2 or 5/1 in Patch 2.1, but a handful of other legendary items are getting upgraded to 5 primary affixes as well.
Legendary items confirmed with 5 primary affixes on the PTR include:
We’re holding off on updating all those legendary changes to the wiki until they’re finalized by the Patch going live, and there are lots of other changes to the inherent properties on existing legendaries, but it’s interesting to watch how many big changes and improvements items are getting on the PTR.
