Diablo 3 Season 21 - Trials of Tempests Begins July 3

The latest season for Diablo 3, Season 21 Trials of Tempests, will begin on July 3rd shortly after a new patch.

North America – 5:00pm PDT
Europe – 5:00pm CEST
Asia – 5:00pm KST

Wait, Nephalem. Do you sense that? Though the air remains tainted with a demonic brimstone stench, the world around you crackles with chaotic elemental energy. You have been deemed worthy, and the primal forces of Sanctuary manifest to aid you in the fight against the swelling darkness. 

During Season 21, your character will occasionally (every 90 seconds) channel an elemental power which unleashes into the environment for a limited time:

  • Rain meteors from the skies around you.
  • Breathe lightning.
  • Summon a wall of flame.
  • Release twisters of pure energy.
  • Crush your foes under the weight of rolling snowballs.

Awards originally available for Season 9 are returning with Season 21. There will also be two new cosmetic rewards for those who complete the entirety of the Season journey. Prove your worth in the Trial of Tempests to earn the Stupendous Contraption pet and the Industrial Portrait Frame.

Seasonal Conquests:

  • For Curses!/Stars Align, pick any Cursed Chest event that requires killing monsters and defeat over 350 or more at level 70 on Torment X or higher.
  • Also returning for Season 21 is Sprinter/Speed Racer, where you’re challenged to complete the entire Diablo III campaign from Act I to Act V at level 70 in under 1 hour!
  • Next is Avarice/Avaritia, where all that glitters is gold—that is, if you can complete a 50 million gold streak outside of The Vault or its Inner Sanctum.
  • We’re also bringing Thrill/Superhuman, which requires completion of a Greater Rift level 45—solo and without any Set items equipped.
  • And lastly we’ll be bringing back Speed Demon/Need for Speed, meaning you’ll need to beat a Torment X Nephalem Rift at level 70 in 2 minutes. Best of luck!

Haedrig’s Gift:

Completing Chapters 2, 3, and 4 of the Season Journey will reward you with three of Haedrig’s Gifts. Each Gift contains a few pieces from one of your Class Sets. Players can only unlock one Class Set in this manner per Season across Hardcore and Non-Hardcore, so choose wisely!

  • Barbarian – Might of the Earth
  • Crusader – Thorns of the Invoker
  • Demon Hunter – The Shadow’s Mantle
  • Monk – Monkey King’s Garb
  • Witch Doctor – Raiment of the Jade Harvester
  • Wizard – Firebird’s Finery
  • Necromancer – Grace of Inarius
