  • General
    • Quality of Life
      • Philosophy
        • For this patch, we wanted to include a few frequently requested Quality of Life changes and focused on better celebrating and indicating Primal Legendary drops.
      • Five (5) additional Armory tabs have been added for all characters, bringing the total to 10
      • Greater Rift Keystones are now stored in the Materials tab
        • Any existing Greater Rift Keystones in both inventory and stash have been automatically moved
      • Primal Legendaries are now marked by a red beam when they drop
      • Primal Legendaries on the ground are now indicated by a red pentagram icon on the mini-map
      • Primal Legendaries now have a red border and updated background on their icons
  • Greater Rifts
    • Philosophy
      • The gameplay of micro-managing Paragon points during the course of a Greater Rift doesn't feel like especially engaging gameplay, nor was it consistent with the other existing rules of entering a Greater Rift. In addition, the below change to matchmaking is to make it much easier for all players to find groups for Greater Rifts, as the previous window (only between Greater Rifts) is typically very small.
    • Paragon points can no longer be swapped while a Greater Rift is open
    • Players can now be matched into public games where a Greater Rift is open
      • Players who join in this manner will not be able to enter the active Rift
      • Players inside the Rift will be able to continue with no additional difficulty scaling until the run has been completed
  • Seasons
    • Season 16: Season of Grandeur
      • The buff for Season of Grandeur has been implemented
        • This buff gives all Seasonal players the legendary power from Ring of Royal Grandeur
        • This buff does not stack with additional Ring of Royal Grandeur (either equipped or in Kanai's Cube)
        • Unlike previous Seasonal buffs, this buff will not apply to Non-Seasonal players
      • When completing a Greater Rift level 70 solo for the first time in a Season, a Primal Legendary is guaranteed to drop from the Rift Guardian
  • Class Set Changes
    • Philosophy
      • We are taking another tuning pass across all class sets to improve class and set diversity at higher level Greater Rifts. Please note that these values are not final and we anticipate some adjustments to occur during the course of PTR.
    • All Classes

before people freak out on the buffs, think of this:

  • Double Damage gives you 4.5 GR levels higher progression
  • 4xDamage gives you 9 GR levels higher progression
  • 8xDmage gives you about 13.5 GR levels higher progression
Biggest game changer here is really Ring of Royal Grandeur effect for free. Also expect some of the numbers to change and top build sets changing at least as a result. I'm also very happy about Legacy of Nightmare buff

This patch is a better announcement than Immortal was. Just changing numbers and a free RORG is better than Blizzcon.

I'd expect some set numbers to come down, looks like they going the route of over buff than slightly nerf till all is in line.

Yeah I think the general consensus is that they are too strong atm, but they will be brought down during the PTR.
