Blizzard will be kicking off Diablo 3 Season 24 in a couple of weeks according to today’s update.
Season 24 starts on 23 July at 5 PM (PDT/CEST/KST) following the game’s next patch update on 20 July. As you will know already from the recent PTR, this update adds the Diablo 2 Ethereals and there are details below on the Season Journey Rewards, Season Conquests, and Haedrig’s Gift. Mark the diaries.
Diablo 3 Season 24 Details
New Season Theme
As the Nephalem reflect on Sanctuary’s history, instruments of power from a bygone era resurface. These ethereal memories will grant those persistent enough to search for them unimaginable power. Legends of the past will manifest once more in the present, and you must decide how to best use these gifts—for ethereal power is fugacious by nature, and will soon return to being no more than a myth.
Diablo II left us with fond memories when it released more than 20 years ago, and with Diablo II: Resurrected launching in September 2021, we’d like to introduce a seasonal theme to honor that legacy. For this seasonal theme, we were inspired to reimagine how Ethereal items could manifest in Diablo III, with 21 iconic weapons from Diablo II making a return. In Season 24, Ethereals are rare, powerful, and fleeting items.
Players who pre-purchase Diablo II: Resurrected before it launches on Sept 23, 2021 will immediately unlock the Heritage of Arreat transmog, the Diablo II-themed Barbarian transmog set, in Diablo III on July 20 once Patch 2.7.1 goes live. For more details, click here.
With the release of Patch 2.7.1, console players will now be able to immediately unlock the Mephisto pet and the Hatred’s Grasp wings when they pre-order the Diablo Prime Evil Collection on Xbox or PlayStation.
Seasonal Cosmetic Rewards
Beginning with Season 17, we began reintroducing previous rewards to make them available to players who may have missed them the first time around. For Season 24, this means awards originally available from Season 12 are returning. In addition to the Chest and Gloves slots of the exclusive Conqueror Set, portraits themed around the High Heavens will be available. Those who enjoy collecting cosmetic wings will also be pleased to see the return of Fiacla-Géar, which gives your character a distinctly angelic look.
However, we know it’s nice to have something new to aim for if you’ve participated in previous Seasons. We’re continuing to provide new End of Journey rewards as introduced in Season 17, with two new cosmetic ones for those who complete the entirety of the Season journey. Relive Ethereal Memory and complete the Season 24 Guardian Journey to earn the Terror Resurrected Portrait and the Lesser Mummy Pet.
Season Journey Rewards
If you’ve been playing the past few Seasons diligently and reached Conqueror in the Season Journey each time, you’ve accrued a few extra stash tabs. Players who have not yet earned a total of four stash tabs via the Season Journey can still unlock an additional one by completing the following tasks at the Conqueror tier:
- Complete a Torment XIII Rift in under 5 minutes
- Complete Greater Rift 60 solo
- Kill Greed on Torment XIII
- Kill Queen Araneae on Torment XIII in under 30 seconds
- Reforge a Legendary or Set item
- Augment an Ancient item with a Level 50 or greater Legendary Gem
- Level three Legendary Gems to 55
- Complete two Conquests
Speaking of Conquests, we’re rotating those, too! Love going fast while killing things? Boss Mode and Worlds Apart will be making a return. On A Good Day and I Can’t Stop are also available, if leveling Legendary Gems is more your thing. If you’d rather max out your kill count with Cursed Chests, Curses! and Stars Align will be right up your alley. Those who enjoy seeing how far they can go without Set Items will get a kick out of The Thrill and Super Human. Finally, if you’re keen to show off your mastery of various Class Sets, Years of War and Dynasty will be available for you to attempt once more.
Finally, the Class Sets rewarded for completing certain chapters in the Season Journey courtesy of Haedrig’s Gift have rotated once more. We’ve listed the available Sets below. For those new to Seasons, here’s how it works:
Completing Chapters 2, 3, and 4 of the Season Journey will reward you with three of Haedrig’s Gifts. These contain a few pieces from one of your Class Sets. Players can only unlock one Class Set in this manner per Season across Hardcore and Non-Hardcore, so choose wisely! The set you receive depends on the class of the character you’re playing when you open each Haedrig’s Gift. To collect a full Class Set, you’ll need to open all three on the same character. Here are the sets granted by Haedrig’s Gift in Season 24:
- Monk – Uliana’s Stratagem
- Demon Hunter – Natalya’s Vengeance
- Crusader – Seeker of the Light
- Wizard – Vyr’s Amazing Arcana
- Barbarian – Immortal King’s Call
- Witch Doctor – Spirit of Arachyr
- Necromancer – Trag’Oul’s Avatar
