After over a decade of bringing you the latest Diablo news and builds, DiabloFans will be shutting down on March 21st, 2019. On this date, we will archive the site in an effort to preserve the history. Thanks for your patronage throughout the years.
Patch 2.6.1 brought updates for class sets, Legendary items, and skills. Whether you’re eager to explore an old standby build or just play around with your current favorite, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the game. Season 12 is the perfect time to dive in and start fresh—so grab a friend and get ready to play!
New Cosmetic Rewards
As per tradition, Season 12 will introduce new cosmetic rewards, obtainable by progressing through the Season Journey.
In addition to the Chest and Gloves slots of the exclusive Conqueror Set, a brand-new series of portraits themed around the High Heavens will be available. Those who enjoy collecting cosmetic wings will also be pleased to see a new arrival—Fiacla-Géar, which gives your character a distinctly angelic look.
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 Spider Queen on Torment XIII in under 15 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 Dayand 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 Alignwill 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, just as before, you’ll get a shiny new Class Set courtesy of Haedrig’s Gift for completing certain chapters in the Season Journey. 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 Haedrig’s Gifts. Each Gift contains 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 will 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 12:
Barbarian – Immortal King’s Call
Crusader – Seeker of the Light
Demon Hunter – Natalya’s Vengeance
Monk – Uliana’s Stratagem
Necromancer – Trag’Oul’s Avatar
Witch Doctor – Spirit of Arachyr
Wizard – Vyr’s Amazing Arcana
