Public testing for Diablo III’s latest update will go live today. Patch 2.7.4 implements a lot of good changes that you will surely love. But, just like any other season in the game, what is the main theme for Season 27?

Sanctified Items

Diablo III’s upcoming season will introduce a new type of consumable item called Angelic Crucibles. Simply put, this item allows you to “Sanctify” any Legendary equipment that you have, giving it perfect stats on all affixes and imbuing it with one of the three new powers that are unique to each class.

Now, there are some important things to keep in mind. First, Angelic Crucibles can drop anywhere in Diablo III at Level 70. Second, you can only equip one Sanctified item at a time. Third, you can use another Angelic Crucible on an already Sanctified item. Doing so doesn’t affect the item’s stats but it can change its additional power. And lastly, only Level 70 items that you’ve obtained during dungeon runs can be Sanctified, not crafted ones.

As mentioned previously, Sanctified items not only have perfect stats but also gain a new power that is unique to every class in the game. Below are just some of the best ones:

  • Whirlwind pulls in and holds all enemies within 25 yards.
  • Hammer of the Ancients hits in all directions around the Barbarian. Every seventh cast of Hammer of the Ancients unleashes a powerful shockwave.
  • Every two seconds, call down Fist of the Heavens on a random nearby enemy.
  • After casting Falling Sword, you descend from the sky with two Archangels that wield immense holy skills and benefit from your holy damage skill modifiers.
Demon Hunter
  • Firing Cluster Arrow concentrates its explosive force into a piercing ray of light.
  • Casting Wave of Light now summons a bell at the target location that deals damage when the caster attacks the bell. Up to seven bells can be active at one time.
  • All Way of the Hundred Fists combo punches use the second stage combo punch.
  • Your Golem now picks up corpses within 20 yards. Each corpse it stores allows you to cast any corpse spending ability with the max number of corpses consumed per cast. Up to 30 corpses can be stored.
  • Enemies within 50 yards are constantly assaulted by the Army of the Dead - Unconventional Warfare while this item is equipped.
Witch Doctor
  • Your Gargantuan spreads Locusts Swarm to any enemy within 16 yards and summons Zombie Dogs periodically. Zombie Dogs now gain every rune when summoned.
  • Magic Missile fires 20 missiles and gains the effect of the Seeker rune.

So, what can you say about the new theme for Season 27?
