Season 20 Meta-Watch: Solo Wizards

It has now been one week since the start of Season 20, and we are already seeing the meta being shaken up due to the addition of three new class sets. Our meta analysis this week will focus on the Wizard, which was given the new Hydra focused Typhon's Veil set. This new set is widely regarded as the weakest of the three new additions; however,...

 Season 20: The Season Of The Forbidden Archives

 

 

Season 20 is the Season of the Forbidden Archives! For the duration of Season 20, the slots in Kanai's Cube that allow you to equip three additional legendary powers will not be restricted to their usual categories. A player can normally equip one Weapon, one Armor, and one Jewelry power through Kanai's Cube; however, for Season 20, players can mix and match between all three. For example,...

Top 3-Player Builds From Season 19

The 3-player leaderboard from Season 19 continues many trends seen in the 2-player leaderboard in regards to the focus being placed more heavily on how quickly a group can clear Greater Rift 150, and also on the group compositions/classes. The returning star of the 2-Player leaderboard, and the staple of all high Greater Rift group clears from season 19, is the...

 Top Solo Builds From Season 19

Top 2-Player Builds From Season 19

Because Greater Rift 150 is the current GR cap, the high-end group meta in Diablo III has become a question of who can clear a Greater Rift 150 the fastest, rather than who can reach the highest potential Greater Rift level. The result of this is that builds will slowly evolve throughout a season within the group meta to focus more on speed and the ability to wave-clear, which is the ability to kill...

Top Solo Builds From Season 19

Anyone playing a seasonal character in Diablo 3 is encouraged to do a solo Greater Rift at one point or another, whether that be to increase your max bloodshard capacity or to complete parts of your seasonal journey. It goes without saying that solo pushing is an integral part of the game, and pushing as far as you can remains a critical benchmark for seeing how well your character is performing. Season 19 introduced a rather strong...

More Rumblings on the Diablo Netflix Adaptation

 

If you've been reading this site over the last year and a half then you've probably noticed I have a fondness for covering the long rumored Diablo Netflix series.

The most recent development comes in the form of yet another confirmation of the series with a LinkedIn...
