Blizzard has revealed the contents of Diablo III‘s 2.5.0 update.
The major addition coming with this update is The Armory, which allows players to store up to five complete character builds on each character, allowing them to swap seamlessly between set items, skills, runes, and gems with the click of a button.
“Any items equipped via the Armory will automatically swap to wherever the exchanged equipment was stored—whether that’s back into your stash or your personal inventory,” the developer explains. “Gems and Legendary Gems will also swap and, if you‘ve upgraded or leveled up your gems, the Armory will automatically select the highest quality or level available for that gem type. Lastly, your skill bar will also update to your selected skills, rune, and Kanai’s Cube power preferences, and you’re welcome to name your setups whatever you like!”
Blizzard notes that The Armory will not store Paragon Points, so these will have to be redistributed after each switch. However, Blizzard has added the ability to spend 100 points at a time to make things easier.
The update also introduces a crafting materials UI and a number of changes for Greater Rifts, including a change in the frequency of certain tile sets and the removal of Bonus Acts in Bounties.
