from Blizzard on what Diablo III
players can expect from Season 16, which
begins on January 18th in the action/RPG sequel. Along with an outline of new
cosmetic rewards, season journey awards, seasonal conquests, and Haedrig's Gift
awards, they also announce that all Seasonal players will benefit from the
legendary power of the Ring of Royal Grandeur for the duration of the season.
They explain what this means, and note that this will not stack with a second
equipped Ring of Royal Grandeur:
Season 16 introduces a brand-new buff to
the mix that will change up the way you play. For the duration of Season 16,
all Seasonal players will benefit from the legendary power of the
Ring of Royal Grandeur. This means you do not need to hunt down or equip
the item to benefit from its Set bonus-enabling ability! Bear in mind that this
buff does not stack with additional Rings of Royal Grandeur, whether they
be equipped directly on your character or via the Jewelry slot in Kanai’s Cube.
For the uninitiated, this means many classes may be able to combine different
Class Set bonuses in new ways—or squeeze yet another Legendary power into their
favorite builds. Theorycrafters unite!—this is the season to strut your stuff,
experiment to your heart’s content, and push the limits of your most perfectly
crafted build. While we’ve done our own experimenting, we can’t wait to see what
the community comes up with in Season 16!
