re: Anyone coming back to Diablo for 2.3

I'm guessing the 2.3 patch for the PS4 is going to hit late August or early September, anyone from the guild going back to check out the new area, adventure mode and Kinai's Cube ?

I will. Horadric cube was one of my favorite things about Diablo back in D2. Excited to try out D3 version as well as all the other updates.

NO MORE RIFT KEYS OR TRIALS!!!!!

Agreed, I'm glad that's gone.  Also intrigued to try out T7-10.   I'm excited to try out the new WD sets, especially the revamped Helltooth.   My PC character isn't nearly as geared out and is only P230 or so, so I've dabbled in the PTR, but haven't really touched the end game stuff yet.

Rift keys are going away. Bloodshards are staying.

Can enter regular Rifts at no cost.

Greater rifts give you a stone level that is appropriate to what you can do. If you can complete that difficulty, it auto-upgrades. If you completely stomp a greater rift, the greater rift stone goes up 3 levels. The greater rift stone never goes away unless you delete it. Defeating a greater rift just allows you to upgrade gems (if able to at that level), no longer offers to upgrade stone - as this is automatic if you completed it.

There is no longer a rift of trials, ever. I believe you get a greater stone when you complete a regular rift. This I'm not too show the details on yet, but I know that rift trials are completely gone now.

You still need to do regular rifts to get GRift keystones, but you can select which GR you want to start at based on the highest one you've completed +1 I think. 

The new area looks really cool, I played enough of the PTR to get through the new area and unlock the cube, and I've played a couple of rounds of bounties, but don't have enough mats to do anything with it yet.   My PC characters are significantly lower than my PS4 ones.  

I need to get on this weekend and see if the new Carnevil change is going to break my build on PS4 right now since my Carn Doc is my main.    Want to play around with the HT Garg and Zombie Bear Builds as well, should play a bit on PS4 this weekend and see if I can farm up a Helltooth set.  Shouldn't be a problem.  

Need to gear up my WW Barb a bit more too, I'd also like to try out the new "Hammer-Sader".

The patch and changes are not retroactive, so any current gear found prior to the patch is not changed once the patch drops. So any new Helltooth set changes will not be applied to any Helltooth set pieces you find before then.

Hope that makes sense. This was also confirmed by a blue post on bnet forums.

Really, that's different from when the way they did in 2.2, where it was retroactive.   Interesting.  Thx for the heads up, I won't bother stocking up HT pieces then. 

 

I'll just continue the hunt for a SMK then .

Np at all. However, this was a reply to a pc related question. So I'd double check because it may be different with console.

Sure enough, it is different with console. Found a blue post stating in patch notes for Console release of 2.3.0:

  • Some of the existing sets have been redesigned, too.
    • Changes made to a set bonus will retroactively be updated, so players will not need to find new versions of these sets in order to benefit from these changes.

 

 I guess this is really good news, less obsolete gear! However, this is just for sets. This was said about legendary items:

  • A number of existing Legendary items have also been redesigned.
    • Old versions of these Legendary items found previous to this patch will not be automatically updated with redesigned powers, and will need to be found again to benefit from these changes.

That's the way it worked for 2.2 as well.   Sets were retroactive, individual items were not.  Almost farmed my HT set over the weekend (missing shoulders).  Still no SMK though, but it looks like I can use the cube to target farm it with yellows.   I'll be cubing a Furnace until I get one.
