    • Pandemonium
      • For the duration of the Season, all players will have a stacking buff that persists as long as you have hit or killed a monster within the last 5 seconds
      • Each stack gives 0.05% movement speed and 0.1% bonus damage. This bonus caps at 50% movement and 100% damage (1000 stacks)
      • In addition, after reaching a certain number of kills in a row, a power is unleashed, dealing an amount of scaling damage based on player level and difficulty or Greater Rift level:

        • 30 Kills: Dark Geysers form beneath enemies
        • 50 Kills: Exploding Chickens seek and destroy
        • 100 Kills: Corpses rain from the sky
        • 150 Kills: A wide Frost Nova freezes enemies

        • 400 Kills: Meteors hail from above
        • 500 Kills: Angels descend upon the battlefield to fight for your cause
        • 1000 Kills: ???
      • Powers are tracked at a group level; this means only one power can be active in play at a time, regardless of the number of players in a group

Items

  • New Crusader Set: Aegis of Valor
    • 2-Piece Bonus: The charged bolts from Fist of the Heavens has a chance to cast another Fist of the Heavens
    • 4-Piece Bonus: Hitting with Fist of the Heavens reduces damage taken by 1% for 5 seconds. Stacks up to 50 times
    • 6-Piece Bonus: Increase the damage of Fist of the Heavens by 10,000%
  • New Monk Set: Patterns of Justice
    • 2-Piece Bonus: Sweeping Wind gains the effect of every rune
    • 4-Piece Bonus: Each enemy within Sweeping Wind increases your movement speed by 5%. Stacks up to 10 times.
    • 6-Piece Bonus: Attacking with Tempest Rush while Sweeping Wind is active will temporarily increase the size of Sweeping Wind after hitting over 30 times within a short period. Sweeping Wind damage is increased by 10,000%
  • Darklight
    • Fist of the Heavens has a [45-60%] 100% chance to be cast twice.
    • Additional Legendary Power: Increases the damage of Fist of the Heavens by [200-250%].
  • Eye of the Storm
    • New Legendary Power: When Sweeping Wind hits exactly 1 enemy, its damage is increased by 100%.
  • Vengeful Wind
    • Increases the maximum stack count of Sweeping Wind by [6-7] 10
    • Additional Legendary Power: Increases the damage of Sweeping Wind by [250-300%]
  • Chantodo’s Resolve
    • The scaled attack speed damage bonus to Wave of Destruction has been reduced
    • Developer Note: This is a reactive adjustment from an earlier change to how Wave of Destruction receives a bonus from Attack Speed. The buff that resulted from that change was more than we expected, so we’re reigning it in.
  • Wrath of the Wastes
    • 6-Piece Bonus: The damage bonus now also applies to Rend
  • Lamentation
    • Additional Legendary Power: Increases the damage of Rend by [150-200%]
  • Ambo’s Pride
    • New Legendary Power: Attacking with Whirlwind also applies Rend and the total damage of Rend is dealt over 1 second
  • Remorseless
    • Hammer of the Ancients has a [25-30%] chance to summon an Ancient for 20 seconds
    • New Legendary Power: While both Wrath of the Berserker and Call of the Ancients are active, Hammer of the Ancients deals [200-250%] more damage.
  • Fjord Cutter
    • You are surrounded by a Chilling Aura when attacking.
    • New Legendary Power: Seismic Slam attacks 50% faster and also deals 100-150% increased damage against Slowed or Chilled enemies
  • Bracers of Destruction
    • Seismic Slam deals [400-500%] increased damage to the first 5 10 enemies it hits.
  • Fury of the Ancients
    • Call of the Ancients gains the effect of the Ancients’ Fury rune and your Ancients attack 100% faster
  • Bone Ringer
    • Now has a cap of 60 stacks.
    • Developer Note: We never intended for this item to be used in a way where you farm stacks for an egregious amount of time (5+ minutes) and then watch all their health disappear in less than a second. It’s not an engaging style of gameplay, and we don’t want that experience to be the best way to play the Necromancer.
  • Legacy of Dreams
    • This gem is now more likely to drop from a Greater Rift Guardian

Monsters

  • Blighter
    • Blighter’s Poison Tentacles’ Area of Effect now hits less frequently, but at higher damage, when attacking players

Bug Fixes

  • Spite
    • Fixed an issue where casting Restless Giant would cause the 200% physical bonus damage to fail to apply when the Gargantuan enraged
  • Squirt’s Necklace
    • Fixed an issue where some ground effects were causing the Squirt’s Necklace buff to fall off despite being shielded

Diablo 3 is available now for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
