Empowered Rifts will increase the number of possible Legendary Gems upgrades from 1-4. The difference in the upgrades will depend on how much gold you spent and the tier of Great Rift.

New Legendaries

As always, a new patch comes with new Legendaries. PTR Patch 2.4.0 should launch with 40+ new Legendaries along with revamps to older relevant Legendaries.

UI Buff Change

In order to compensate for the large influx of new Buffs, Diablo 3 will be removing skill buff icons from showing up to allow more room for the other buffs.

More Stash Space

The new PTR Patch should come with the ability for players to purchase a new stash tab that will allow 350 more items to be stored. Along with that, players can possibly earn even more stash tabs through Season Journeys up to a maximum of 10 stash tabs or a total of 3500 items.

Season Journey Changes

There will be no more Seasonal Legendaries starting Season 5, every Legendary at that point will be avaiable for both seasonal characters and non-seasonal characters.

We’ve introduced Haedrig’s Gift, a special bundle of Set items you’ll receive on completion of certain stages of the Season Journey. Should you complete the first four chapters of the Season Journey, you’ll be guaranteed a full set of one of your six piece class sets. Which set applies to the Season will rotate with each new Season, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to collect them all.

Any items during the transferring to a Season will be sent to your mailbox on the non-seasonal server.
