Diablo is once again causing havoc and destruction in Sanctuary. Only this time, there is a new ally you can embody to help send the ruler of death back into the gates of Hell. Season 11 of Diablo is upon us and to everyone that is a huge Diablo fan like I am, there have been a lot of improvements to the game. Blizzard has always done an excellent job when it comes to listening to their fans and players, and what we want added to the game. Well, instead of just going on and on about Blizzard and how amazing Diablo is, lets jump right into season 11 and all it has to offer.

     1. The Season of the Necromancer. 

The Necromancer class was last seen in Diablo II. This class utilities dark magic to conjure dead spirits and unleash the power of blood and bone to demolish demons. The class was so popular that Blizzard decided to bring it back to Diablo III. Now the class has been out for a while, but players have been waiting for season 11 to start in order to reap all of the new rewards for the necromancer. In order to play as the Priest of Rathma, you have to buy the character pack. The Diablo III: Rise of the Necromancer pack costs $14.99. It may sound like a lot of money for a new class, but it also comes with a bunch of other in game items. With the pack, you receive the Necromancer class, 2 character slots, 2 stash tabs to hold more loot and weapons, new Crypt Guardian Wings that you can use with any hero, a half-formed Golem pet, and a new banner shape, banner sigil, and pennant.

Who wouldn’t more gifts from Haedrig right? In season 11, you can receive a shiny new class set armor for completing certain chapters in season journey. The way it works is by completing chapters 2,3, and 4. Completion of each chapter will reward you with one of Haedrig’s Gifts. Each gift contains two pieces to the set armor for your class. Depending on what class you are when you open the gift will result in that classes armor set.
