Even though the release of the new Necromancer class into the hell-spawn wilds of Diablo III is more than enough cause for celebration, the next free content patch has also surfaced today. Diablo III Patch 2.6.0 brings two new zones to Adventure Mode -- The Moors and The Temple of the Firstborn. Very Necromancer-y in their look, they also bring a batch of new monster types to the game.
Also coming in the update is a new mode called Challenge Rifts, which represent a sort of static time trial meets competitive Diablo, as players take on the same rift (with the same character builds) in order to beat times and claim weekly rewards.
New Class: Necromancer As a master of the dark arts, you wield the powers of life and death necessary to restore the Balance! Necromancers are powerful spell casters who lay waste to their enemies using curses and reanimation—along with an obedient cadre of pets. This new class employs a controlled gameplay style using the raw materials of life: blood and bone.
Note: This class is available through the Rise of the Necromancer pack. For more details, please click here.
New Items for the Necromancer Over 30 new Legendary items have been added for the Necromancer class, along with four class-exclusive Sets featuring unique themes. Set Dungeons have also been added for each of the new Sets, providing you new opportunities to test your mettle.
New Feature: Challenge Rifts Explore new builds created by your fellow players in a weekly static dungeon! You can access these through the main screen, similar to Adventure Mode and Campaign Mode.
New Zones: The Moors & The Temple of the Firstborn The fog-enshrouded Moors and the darkened Temple of the Firstborn can be explored in Adventure Mode through a new waypoint on the Act 2 map.
New Bounties: Realms of Fate Four new Waypoints have appeared in Adventure Mode. Each one has bounties to complete. These Realms of Fate are the unintended consequences of the battle between the nephalem and Diablo in the High Heavens.
Of course the real star of the show is the arrival of the Necromancer! For detailed info on the new class, skills, runes, and items, be sure to check out the full Patch Notes.
