Diablo 3 Season 25 kicks off this week

Diablo 3 Season 25 kicks off this week

You’re getting more Diablo content to sink your teeth into this week. Blizzard confirms in a post on Diablo 3‘s forums that Season 25 kicks off on December 10 at 5pm local time across all regions. That’ll be shortly after the next Diablo 3 update, so prepare for a download.

The big new addition of this season is a new type of socketable item called Soul Shards. You’ve got seven unique types of Soul Shard that give you demonic new powers. If you think they look familiar at all, it’s because the Lords of Hell provide their influence. Breaking that down even further, you’re getting three Prime Evil Soul Shards that can be slotted into helms and four Lesser Evil Soul Shards that can be equipped into weapons. You can only use one of each Soul Shard simultaneously, though you can upgrade each of them three times using a new seasonal-exclusive consumable called the Hellforge Ember.

So how do you get ’em? Soul Shards and Hellforge Embers can drop from anywhere in Sanctuary, really, but you’ll want to be besting bosses for a higher chance at snagging Soul Shards. Happy grinding, folks.
