My biggest concern about Patch 2.1

  • I really love the change that developer did with Diablo 3 vanilla and what it is now in ROS. My disappointment is about the fact that when the patch 2.1 come out, you have to choose: Continue your level 70 character and upgrade them with new legendary gems and other new stuff. Or play the ladder. I really want to play ladder, but I really want to have a very good character and continue to upgrade my level 70 wizard. Starting ladder later will make the season 1 lost of anything I could won, so I have to start the season right after patch 2.1 launch. When the season begin they trasnfer stuff to your main account but a new season begin so you cannot follow the season 2. Is my main account are now useless if I play ladder or I should just skip a full ladder season to upgrade my main account.....

    Since I can't spend more than 10-15 hours per week for this game, I can't do both. I have to choose.

    Am I alone or some of you have the same feeling about the patch ?

    The best for me is to bring the patch 2.1 one month before they starts the first season ladder...

    I did not play the PTR, but I have see somewhere people saying that you can reach level 70 in less than 5 hours. It is really 5 hours ?

    Thanks

    You can absolutely play your Seasonal characters and continue to play your non-Seasonal ones on the side. (That's what I'll be doing, too.)

    Those who want to stay at the top of the Leaderboards will need to play their Seasonal character(s) regularly, but there's no rule that says you have to play for the entire Season. For instance, you could complete the Conquests and hunt down the Season-exclusive Legendary items you want before switching to play your non-Seasonal characters for the duration.

    If you don't play on the ladder, the season-only legendaries will roll into the normal loot pool (ie, your current 70) at the season's conclusion.

    CyberGoat beat me to it (or perhaps bleat me to it)! Seasonal Legendary items will roll over into the non-Seasonal loot pool after the current Season ends. Items, gold, blood shards, crafting materials, Paragon experience, Artisan progression, achievements, and any new recipes or stash tabs earned during the Season will also roll over.
