What you need to know

  • Diablo 3 Season 21 is right around the corner.
  • Season 21 is set to begin on July 3.
  • The season is being preceded by a patch that has already been released.

Hardcore Diablo 3 players take heed: Blizzard has revealed the patch notes and details for Season 21, which begins on July 3. Season 21 is called the Trials of Tempests and for good reason: the theme for this season is elemental energy. Every 90 seconds, your character will channel energy, triggering one of a handful of effects:

  • Rain meteors from the skies around you.
  • Breathe lightning.
  • Summon a wall of flame.
  • Release twisters of pure energy.
  • Crush your foes under the weight of rolling snowballs.

While there's a whole host of balancing that took place in now-available patch, the main reason to grind this season is for the special rewards. Of these rewards, Haedrig's Gifts are a major highlight. Here are the sets that can be unlocked:

  • Barbarian - Might of the Earth
  • Crusader - Thorns of the Invoker
  • Demon Hunter - The Shadow's Mantle
  • Monk - Monkey King's Garb
  • Witch Doctor - Raiment of the Jade Harvester
  • Wizard - Firebird's Finery
  • Necromancer - Grace of Inarius
