S16 Theme: Season of Grandeur

There will be no more grinding Act 1 bounties this season for a Ring of Royal Grandeur! This ring’s power will be this season’s main theme!

EVERY CHARACTER HAS THE POWER OF RING OF ROYAL GRANDEUR APPLIED. This means one of three things. 1) Builds which do not usually use RoRG have one extra filler or utility piece of gear to use. 2) Builds which DO use RoRG free up an accessory slot, which is quite powerful.

Season 16 Patch Notes

Season is ending - What happens to my items? My Character?

“What happens to my seasonal characters when season ends!?”

ALL your seasonal characters, and the items they’re wearing and holding, are automatically re-allocated as NON-SEASONAL (eternal) characters! NOTHING IS LOST. Paragon EXP is added to your total pool of NS Paragon EXP. (Money, too)

“What happens to my items after the season ends!?”

ALL your items in the stash are “mailed” to your non-seasonal world. THESE ITEMS EXPIRE AFTER 30 DAYS from season start!!! So junk them, store them, do whatever you want! Just remember that if they’re still in your mail for 30 days, they’re gone!

Season 16 Start Guides!

If you’re a brand new player – we suggest going seasonal for the stash tab! Your characters will be ported to non-seasonal (Eternal) afterwards, anyway!

  1. So you have to clear quest of 4 chapter to get 1 set of each for your characters or you have to play another to get another sets ?

      • If I start with a monk, and clear to 2 chapter, and delete the monk, and start with a crusader, I will get the full set (off course, clearing the 4 chapters quest)?

        • You can get a maximum of 3 “haedrig’s gifts” each season, ideally on the same character to get acces to a full set bonus. If you were to receive the first “haedrigs gift” on your monk (containing 2 set pieces). If you then were to switch to a crusader, you wouldn’t get the first “haedrigs gift” for chapter 2 I believe, but only the two gifts from chapters 3 and 4 (ending up missing 2 set pieces).

  2. Hi! I have done many rift at ”Expert” or higher… and the Expert challenge on chapter 2 wont check. Since its my last one to complet ch.2… can u help me?

  3. I’m new to Diabolos (PS4) and I’m already frustrated with the season 11 since I cannot seem to find any how-to tutorials or figure out how to start/progress through the chapters. I play with my friend and he cant figure it out either. We have completed 3 sets of bounties each day and no unlocks. We were on Act V then switched to Act I figuring we have to start from the beginning. Nope-chapter 1 is still incomplete. We defeated Naphalm like six times because its the “start”-nope. We defeated him on hard mode, expert and attempted torment but both of us didnt have a chance. He did manage somehow to get 1/4 complete after defeating Naphalm but I didnt even though I was fighting along his side. I was thinking maybe we need to be lv70 to progress but nope cuz he got 1/4 and i have more xp than him. We defeated another set of bounties and neither of us triggered that either. Any idea what we’re doing wrong?

  4. you are probably aware but the season 11 Witch Doctor guides are pointing to season 10. All the others are fine as far as I can tell

  5. i am lvl 70 and done with chapter 2 but master dificulty will not unlock how do i get it unlocked to do master lvl diablo and master lvl rifts?

    • You do not “need” to do anything to unlock game difficulty. Right before you press “Start Game”, you can change the difficulty under GAME SETTINGS > under DIFFICULTY, you can choose the difficulty and torment of the game.
