    Diablo 3 Podcast #168: Season Three and RoS Year One

    Lots to cover this episode, with Season 2 ending and a Season 3 start date, a new patch on the PTR, and the Reaper of Souls one year anniversary fast approaching. Plus debate over Ancient weapons, the needed 7th items in RoS sets, and seasonal exclusive legendaries. Featuring Xanth, Tyr, and Flux.

    Diablo 3 Podcast #168: Season Three and RoS Year One

    • 4:00 -- Paragon 1000 reached in Season Two. How feels everyone about the wildly inconsistent length of S1 vs. S2, and what expects for S3?
    • 16:00 -- New patch on the PTR; comments on the red text changes? Buffs to the Wizard sets. Thousand Storms Monk set finally useful?
    • 30:00 -- Flux airs his complaints about changes to the Demon Hunter sets and Blizzard's weird preference for Multishot over all other skills. Update: I tested the Natalya's RoV set the next day the CDR pace is actually *buffed* from the previous patch (which nerfed it), despite the wording sounding like a nerf. You just have to hit things with your channeled skill for VERY fast CDR. So retract my pre-testing podcast complaints about RoV with Natalya's.
    • 36:00 -- Why can't the RoS sets get a 7th item to give them the flexibility the Vanilla sets have now?
    • 42:00 -- Season Two ending, Season Three beginning. Plans and reactions?
    • 48:30 -- Seasonal exclusive legendary items. Pros and cons. Yes or no?
    • 1:01:30 -- Ancient weapons problems. They are mandatory for end game performance; should they be easier to find, or create?

    I agree that S2 is very likely shorter because of their internal schedule, read: D3X2/beta will be accounced "soon" (maybe gamescom in August).

    Exp gear scales multiplicatively (rather than additively) in GR. That's why paragon 1000 monk using all exp gear (likely running GR 35-40 repeatedly in a group). Hopefully blizzard chooses to classify that as a bug and fixes for season 3.

    Was just about to say this. Depending on how good the group is you can also run 46-49s and just leave once the rift guardian spawns.

    What about just having "ancient forgotten souls"? We clearly don't have enough crafting mats as it is. 100 souls + wep = rerolled ancient wep.
