Diablo 3’s Season 9 ladder has begun and it’s going off Patch 2.4.3 which doesn’t really have any new additions to the game except a few new legendaries and set changes that warrant little to no change to meta-builds since Season 7. Similar to Season 8, the season is going to be lackluster and burn-out is going to happen very soon when all season journey rewards have been claimed.
