Blizzard Entertainment will launch the Diablo III PTR 2.6.9 on May 21, 2020. The PTR will have 2 buffs: increased legendary drop rate and double blood shards -- to faciliate testing. PTR will be up for a few days. Thanks, Corey.
The new season gives players Trials of Tempests. Every two minutes, the player's character unleashes mayhem upon the screen with a random elemental power (out of 5 available).
The Demon Hunter and Necromancer have a new Set.
Necromancer and Witch Doctor skill changes.
Some items have been modified: Stone of Jordan, Reaper's Wraps, Mantle of Channeling, and Convention of Elements.
PTR Focus & Details
We’ll be conducting the Patch 2.6.9 PTR over the course of two weeks, starting Thursday, May 21. During this time there may be periodic maintenances, outages, hotfixes, or minor patches.
There will be two PTR-unique buffs active to help you on your journey: increased Legendary drop rate and double Blood Shard drops. You can also buy new gear for testing from the special PTR vendor, Djank Mi'em, who will exchange Blood Shards for class-specific bags full of Legendary items that we'd love for you to test!
To ensure that the most significant changes receive an ample amount of attention, we'd love for you to focus testing and feedback on the new Demon Hunter and Necromancer sets, Necromancer Skill changes, and the Legendary item changes.
So that we can efficiently review your posts, feedback should be provided in the PTR Feedback forum while bug reports should be provided in the PTR Bug Report forum. Patch Notes were posted here.
