Blizzard has pushed a new update live for Diablo III that includes new Torment levels, the Season 17 buff, and more.

Following today’s update, players will have access to Torment 14, 15, and 16, which closely match Greater Rift 65, 70, and 75 in terms of difficulty and rewards. In addition to this, portals left behind by Treasure Goblins “may occasionally lead somewhere udderly ridiculous.”

The update also introduces the Season 17 buff, which increases damage dealt by 750 percent and reduces damage taken by four percent for every Ancient item equipped while no set bonus is active.

“The Season of Grandeur was by far our most popular Themed Season yet. In the wake of having a free Ring of Royal Grandeur active, we saw a lot of requests to try the same thing with the Legacy of Nightmares set power,” Blizzard explains. “We had been toying with the same idea internally, and the community request really nudged us over the edge of giving it a go!”

Other changes include a new result for Kanai’s Cube, an increase in the amount of Death’s Breath rewarded from Challenge Rifts, an extra stash tab in seasons on PC, a new potion, and several bug fixes.
