Diablo III Season 9 Ends This Month

Battle.net has word that Season 9 in Diablo III will draw to a close on March 17th, Saint Patrick's Day, and the new competitive season for the action/RPG will commence on the final day of the month. They offer all the details on how the seasonal rollover will be conducted along with this refresher on how rewards will be handled:

Kanai's Cube

  • After the Season rollover, any Legendary Powers unlocked using Kanaiís Cube on a Seasonal Character will become available on non-Seasonal characters as appropriate.
  • At the start of a new Season, Seasonal characters will not have access to any Kanaiís Cube Legendary Powers unlocked during previous Seasonal or non-Seasonal play.

Season 9 Rewards

  • All players who reach level 70 on a hero in Season 9 will unlock exclusive chest and gloves transmogrification appearances. These appearances will unlock immediately upon hitting level 70 on a Seasonal hero, and will be available on Seasonal and non-Seasonal heroes alike (even before the Season concludes). To access your new appearances, simply visit Miriam the Mystic and open the Transmogrification tab.
  • In addition, players can earn portrait frames and an exclusive cosmetic pet for completing various chapters of the Season Journey.

Out of the Blue

It's nasty out there today, as a cold front rolled in a couple of days ago to put a harsh end to a warm streak. Here's hoping this is a last gasp of winter, and will end soon enough. If that's the case, the season sure is going out in style... I took a wet plastic bag out back to shake off the water, and found I was able to create my own little snow storm with the droplets. Weeeee!
