Blizzard announced the 24th season of Diablo 3 and the content in the related update 2.7.1. Both should be released in July.
When does season 24 start?
The new season will start at 5 pm on July 23.
Patch 2.7.1 will be released a little earlier, that is, July 20.
The motto of season 24 is Ethereal Memory. Therefore, we should review the Diablo 2 released more than 20 years ago, and it will return as a remake of Diablo 2 Resurrection in September 2021.
In addition, there are ethereal objects in Diablo 3, more accurately 21 beloved weapons from Diablo 2.
What weapons are these?
Ethereal weapons will have a set of powerful affixes, legendary professional weapon power, and random professional passive abilities. You will also have the unique icons, names, item types, and sounds found initially in Diablo II.
Ethereal weapons will only fall from monsters, boxes, and destructible objects.
You don’t have to reach level 70 to get them.
The rarity of virtual spirits lies between ancient items and ancient items
Each class has 3 Ethereals-each Ethereal weapon has a fixed affix and will receive random legendary weapon rewards and random passive abilities of the class
