It is that time again Nephaliem: Season 8 is here and live on the Diablo servers. Time to create your seasonal heroes, take to Sanctuary and rid it of evils. Remember, you can also use the Rebirth option with your existing characters, however any gear earned either thru previous season or in game will be striped from them and will have to start new, and all characters start at level 1. Don’t worry, old gear will be mailed to your non-seasonal characters. Seasons offer unique limited-time cosmetic items, transmogs, achievements. All of your progress is tracked through the Season 8 Leaderboard.
New cosmetic rewards in Season 8
Like past Seasons you will be awarded cosmetic items for your characters. This Season you will be able to acquire the Conqueror Set along with a portrait series inspired by the Burning Hells. Along with these a new set of wings have been included this Season. The wings come from one of Diablo II’s most iconic villains, The Maiden of Anguish, Andariel.
