The first substantial content patch for Diablo III: Reaper of Souls on PC and Mac is now live.
Patch 2.1 brings a number of highly anticipated features, including Seasons, Leaderboards, Greater Rifts and scaling Legendary Gems, and a new Nephalem Rift tileset called The Cesspools.
Seasons work like Call of Duty Prestige levels. Periodically, players are able to reset their characters and artisans to level 1. By doing so, they will be able to access new unique Legendary items, achievements, and other rewards. Competing in Seasons will also allow players to climb new leaderboards.
To celebrate the launch of patch 2.1, Blizzard has also announced that players will get +100% Gold Find, and double the number of Treasure Goblins will spawn in each game.
