Blizzard is FINALLY investigating ‘major lag’ complaints by many, many players. If you happen to find lack problems, check out this link https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/performing-a-traceroute
Blizzard confirmed that patch 2.2.0 for Diablo III will bring new item sets to the game. New sets are Wrath of the Wastes and Unhallowed Essence, Delsere’s Magnum Opus.
Devs have hinted that four of the existing item sets will also receive an update in the patch. But Blizzard didn’t mention the names of said four items.
“Tyvalir: The new sets – including Delsere’s Magnum Opus, Wrath of the Wastes and Unhallowed Essence – are currently planned to arrive in patch 2.2.0, along with updates to existing 4 piece sets. While this could change depending on a variety of factors, and while we don’t have a date to announce yet for that patch, the plan is for all of these to arrive at around the same time.
First Look: Season 2
Season 1 has been a great opportunity for us to introduce new gameplay mechanics to Diablo III, and we explored adding new challenges and content for you to tackle. We learned a lot from our first Season, and today, we’ve got some details on our next Season to share that reflect on those lessons.
New Season, New Stuff!
As we mentioned when we first introduced Seasons, plenty of new items and rewards are coming with Season 2. But that’s not all! Patch 2.1.2 will introduce new features that will certainly have an impact on your Seasonal experience.
For now, let’s focus on what the Season itself is introducing and go over what you can expect from the first day of Season 2.
New Seasonal Legendaries
As we announced with our very first Season preview, we’ll be introducing several new Legendary items with each Season. What would a Season preview be without a look at of a few of these upcoming goodies?
Just a few examples of upcoming Seasonal Legendaries!
Note that some of the new items we’re implementing are previously-existing Legendary items that lacked powerful, game changing affixes. As we add affixes to them and they become Seasonal Legendaries, these items will no longer drop in non-Seasonal games. Once the Season ends, these items will roll over to the regular loot pool for all game types, complete with their shiny new Legendary affix!”

Blizzard have yet to announce a release date for the patch… But updates to the item sets will take place at the same time. The possibility of the patch may not be released in Season 2 is rather high. The season 1 of Diablo III will come to an end on February 3rd. But like most gaming updates, this might get pushed back.
I also posted a new game play video earlier today. It’s an older video and meant to posted it earlier. But with holidays & being sick for the past couple of weeks a lot of things were pushed back 😦 Even some of the podcast were missed or pushed but because of this. HATE the flu! Anywho, enjoy the video!!
