By now, most players have found (often to their surprise) that the themed achievement park of the Season Journey is actually a pretty fun ride. I was skeptical when I first saw it on the PTR for Patch 2.3, but found myself enjoying it when building my first Seasonal character on the PTR.
Legendary Gems were first officially revealed in the Patch 2.1 preview blog back in June of this year. They will be added to Reaper of Souls in Patch 2.1, and are currently undergoing testing on the PTR.
We’ve updated all the Diablo 3 Legendary Crafting Costs item pages in the DiabloWiki.net with the new Patch 2.0.6 crafting costs. (Alas, not all our Sets pages are updated yet, because lots. Also, don’t rely on the Battle.net game guide; its crafting item pages are 2 patches behind on costs and still list white items and leg mats as requirements.) Yes, it was hard to edit all those wiki pages with tears in our eyes for the lost game features, but somehow we managed. We even updated/buried the glorious Legendary Materials page, which has more colors and icons and strategy tips than your Monk can shake a Daibo at.
We’ve been updating a ton of pages in DiabloWiki.net lately, and over the weekend I put together pages for Reduced Damage from Elites and Increased Damage to Elites. Those are very valuable stats and I didn’t realize how rare they were until I tracked down every item in the game that delivered those bonuses. I even got inspired to try and add some more to my Demon Hunter, who has found EVERY ORANGE RING FIFTY TIMES EXCEPT FOR A SOJ. *cough*
Since Reaper of Souls’ release we’ve been updating like mad in DiabloWiki.net, adding new pages and updating old ones. While making such changes I always wind up reading some of the older pages, and since we’ve been documenting everything about the game since even before it was announced, the wiki has a lot of interesting Blue info from 2008-2011, back when the game features were in early development, and Diablo 3 development reversals were not uncommon.
We created the Diablo 3 wiki, DiabloWiki.net in 2008, some months *before* Diablo 3 was announced, and with the help of numerous community members we updated it constantly during the pre-game years, adding new articles full of blue posts and screenshots and the latest info all during development. That was great at the time, and there’s some great archives with a visual history of how the game evolved (see the archived skill trees or traits articles for a sample), but there’s one drawback to having a wiki with hundreds of articles from 2008-2012… there are a damn lot of pages to update when info changes!
Those who have been keeping an eye on the recent updates page in DiabloWiki recently will have noticed an awful lot of activity coming from the Risingred quarter. A few weeks ago he undertook the project of documenting every legendary item with screenshots of characters equipping the items. No small undertaking but he persevered and this weekend finally signed it off.
