If you thought Diablo III was just a little too easy for your liking, the planned content shipping with Patch 2.4.2 was probably music to your ears. Three extra levels of torment, along with a whole lot of other tweaks and goodies? Hell yes!
Patch 2.4.2 is now out as a matter of fact, meaning you can head over to Sanctuary right now to have your face ripped off if you wish. There are a ton of changes, so be sure to read through all of them in detail right here.
Season 7 hasn’t started just yet, in case you were wondering. It officially kicks off tomorrow, on August 5th, so the wait isn’t too long at least.
As usual, there will be new loot up for grabs, which includes epic sets. Remember, you can earn one full class set for free per season. Here’s what’s up for grabs:
Barbarian – Wrath of the Wastes: Everyone loves tearing through monsters at breakneck speed, and Wrath of the Wastes is built to blend with the best of them! Using a combination of Whirlwind and Rend, this set is truly designed around spinning to win.
Crusader – Roland’s Legacy: Become the essence of a knight in shining armor with this combination Shield Bash and Sweep Attack set! This set evokes traditional medieval-style combat, and successive uses of these melee-oriented skills will stack Attack Speed and damage reduction, transforming your hero into a devastating defender of Sanctuary.
Demon Hunter – Unhallowed Essence: Ever wondered what a shotgun would look like in the world of Sanctuary? That original concept inspired the Unhallowed Essence set, which provides you great damage boosts to generators, Multishot, and Vengeance for every point of Discipline you have. The armies of the Burning Hells are forced to fight in the shade against such power!
Monk – Raiment of a Thousand Storms: Fight with the fury of the tempests themselves! The Raiment of a Thousand Storms set props up your Spirit Generators and Dashing Strike, allowing you to deliver blows that are both fast and furious. If you want to embody living lightning, then this is the set for you!
Witch Doctor – Helltooth Harness: If you enjoy wrangling enemies and debuffing them back to the Burning Hells, you may want to consider Helltooth Harness! This set applies a debuff called Necrosis to enemies that are hit by a variety of different abilities, and particularly boosts the effectiveness of Wall of Death. Box them in, load them with decay, and watch them melt!
Wizard – Tal Rasha’s Elements: Wizards are the masters of elemental magic, and no set embodies that more than Tal Rasha’s Elements. By cycling through a variety of elemental damage, you’ll be raining Meteors from the sky as well as enjoying both offensive and defensive boosts. Make it rain Arcane! (and Cold and Fire and Lightning. . . .)
I swear I play Wizard every time, but how can I not? I just love casting millions of spells and watching enemies melt before my eyes! That crusader set sure looks enticing as hell though…
What set are you going to choose? Are you ready to get lost in Patch 2.4.2, and by extension, season 7 of Blizzard’s action RPG? I haven’t played it for months, but I’ve just updated, and I’m sorely tempted to pay Tyrael a visit!
