Gain increased damage, decreased skill cooldowns, and more in the newest themed season.
Diablo 3’s newest season of play is officially in full swing with Season 18. Continuing its trend of themed seasons, this season focuses on the Power of the Triune buff. This results in three circles spawning on the map at any given time, each granting a different buff when standing in it.
One example is that standing in the Triune of Creation circle will result in drastically reduced cooldowns. The Triune of Love circle increases damage by 100 percent. Not only will it make the leveling process that much faster for new seasonal characters but it should also make for some interesting Greater Rift runs.
Along with returning cosmetic rewards from Season 6, including the Conqueror Set’s Chest and Gloves, players will be able to earn new portrait frames. New Legendary Powers, a handful of buffs and more have also been introduced to make seasonal play that much more interesting. Check out the full update notes here.
Developer Note: There are additional specific notes below, but broadly for 2.6.6, we wanted to introduce a handful of new item powers targeted at two audiences: (1) certain classes with long-standing requests for balance/quality of life adjustments and (2) the broader player base for experimenting with Kanai’s Cube. This means fewer class-specific new additions, but more additions that everyone has an opportunity to play with. We also experimented with making some of the craftable sets from Haedrig more appealing for fresh level 70’s or players looking to maximize their farming runs. We hope to see some interesting new theorycrafting and tactics out of 2.6.6 and can’t wait to see what the community does with this new loot!
Updated Item Notes: There are a number of notes below clarifying the intention of certain item functionalities. In a couple cases, such as with Flavor of Time, the item wasn’t behaving properly during PTR per our intentions (which has been fixed). For others, we just wanted to provide more clarity about exactly how these items behave.
Flavor of Time
New Legendary Power: Pylon effects last twice as long.
Note: Only wearers of this item gain this effect. This is intended.
New Legendary Power: Attacks will slay enemies with less than (5-10%) health.
Note: This item’s power does not work on followers. This is intended.
New Legendary Power: Getting attacked will slowly turn you to stone… (You gain 50% more armor, but your movement speed is reduced by 15% and attack speed is reduced by 20%. This effect stacks up to 5 times)
PTR Update: This item now displays a buff icon and has a clearer in-game description. Thank you for the feedback!
Note: Immunity to control-impairing effects can work against the reduced attack and movement speed penalties. This is intended.
New Legendary Power: Slaying enemies engulfs the wielder into a Frenzy. (Killing enemies increases your attack speed by 15% and movement speed by 5%. This effect stacks up to 5 times)
PTR Update: This item’s power now works on kill assists and pet kills. Thank you for the feedback!
