Diablo III - Season 24 P.T.R. brings a HUGE SURPRISE!

 Blizzard has revealed what players can expect from Season 24 and it is something very cool! First things first though, the PTR of Season 24 is going live at June 17 and will last for 2 weeks. So, about the huge surprise, in that Season, players will have the chance to find and collect ETHEREAL items!!! Yes, you've read right. 

Ethereal items is a type of items that exists in Diablo 2 (and will be back of course with Diablo 2 Resurrected) and now Blizzard decided to bring these items in Diablo 3 (in a bit different form though). These are the mechanics of Ethereal items, pointed out by Blizzard:

  • Ethereals are account bound and can only be dropped by monsters, chests, and destructibles, but do not require your character to be level 70 to drop. Ethereals cannot be acquired through Kanai's Cube or from Kadala.
  • Ethereal rarity drop rate is set between Ancient and Primal items.
  • There are 3 unique Ethereals per class. Each Ethereal has fixed affixes and rolls one random Legendary Weapon power and one random Class Passive Skill.
  • Only one Ethereal can be equipped at a time.
  • Ethereals ignore item durability loss.
  • Legendary Powers and Class Passive Skills rolled on Ethereals do not stack with the same power equipped through Kanai's Cube, Items or Skills.
  • Ethereals cannot be Enchanted, Transmogrified, Dyed, Reforged, or traded.
  • Ethereals can be augmented.
  • Collecting all 21 Ethereals during Season 24 will reward players with the Feat of Strength, Ethereal Recollection. Players who accomplish this will have all Ethereal transmogrify options available for future seasonal and non-seasonal play.
  • Ethereals only drop in Seasonal play, and will not transfer to your non-seasonal character when the season ends.
