Season 4 of Diablo III is here, just after getting it’s most recent patch. Available to PC and Mac users, seasons are not mandatory. They are a fun way to make your way to the top of the seasonal leaderboards and to compete with friends and other players. You can still play with your regular character, but have to create a new one if you want to participate in the seasons.
Seasons are an optional, recurring game mode that offers PC players the opportunity to periodically start fresh, leveling new Normal or Hardcore heroes from level 1 without any currency, resources, items, or previously earned Paragon experience. Similar to the separation between Normal and Hardcore game modes, Seasonal heroes will also have their own shared stash and Artisan progression. Any currency, materials, recipes, items, Paragon experience, and Artisan progression earned during a Season will be rolled over to a player’s non-Seasonal profile once the Season concludes.
Kanai’s Cube is a new item available in Season 4 and it can remove the level requirement to be able to equip a certain item on your champion, which can be massively OP.
Having wanted to tackle Season 3 seriously, I’ll be making the same promise with Season 4.
