Diablo 3 Season 3 Patch 2.2

Blizzard have formally announced the end of Diablo 3’s Season 2, and with it the date of Season 3. Sunday, April 5th will mark the end of the current Season, while Friday, April 10th will mark the start of Season 3. During the downtime, it’s highly likely that the current PTR patch, 2.2, will be applied to the game, bringing with it a torrent of new content.
