Like most of you I've been playing necro non stop last month or so but have zero desire to start over again so soon. Honestly it would have been better had they had season 11 ready for release with necro.

I've only played season 10. Do seasons usually have season exclusive legandaries that aren't available in standard game until season ends ? I'm guessing they will have a few legendary items for necro added for season 11. That might motivate me to play season 11 rather than wait 3 months to be able to get those new items in normal game. An item i would really love is something like Dawn for Demon Hunter but for Necro, cutting down land of the dead cooldown significantly. That or more off hand legendary items for the Necro

Fresh start and stash tabs. Whiny kids got things like seasonal only items taken away.
It's a new day. Make sure to take advantage of that.

They don't do season-exclusive items anymore because people whined about having to wait three months to loot them if they didn't play season.

I made a necro to play with in the offseason, but I'm definitely interested in seeing how it goes when I don't have a level-reduced Ancient weapon and hundreds of paragon points to play with from the start.

That's interesting about legendary items. From experience do they always add new batch of legandaries with each season starts ? Should we expect a bunch of new legandaries we can farm for next week when the season starts ?

Sorry I should add I play on ps4... not sure if this also applies to console

There hasn't been anything new added (aside from the Necro) since like season 6 or something. However they were adding a few special properties to preexisting items.

That's a bummer. I was under the impression each new season also included a bunch of new legandaries. Oh well.

Patches still add new legandaries though ? Or is that also not the case anymore ?

They did that so they could find exploits before the Season began. However, that does not guarantee anything, as if Bob is going to save an exploit he found from PTR, he's gonna do it during Seasons, not use it during the interim.

If you don't want to start all over again, you don't have to. Just continue playing your Non-Season Necromancer. There's going to be barely a difference anyway, considering the fact that for stuff like Paragon, you won't get to use your "300 Paragon" but you're still going to get 300 Paragon in Seasons anyways. Same applies for stuff like gold and mats.

Nope, Season-exclusive items used to be the main incentive to play Seasons but then players whined about them so Blizz took them away.

No, we already got the patch (2.6) - it was the Necro.

This. It's why people say the game has been in maintenance mode.

Wait so when people say "nothing new added since season 6" they mean like literally not even a single new legendary ? That SUCKS

So that's it for the Necro ? That's all the class specific legendary items for him ? He has less than all the other characters

Yeah pretty much. Again there were tweaks to some preexisting items but nothing new.
