Overview of the Season 30 in Diablo III

Diablo 3’s Season 30 is set to be the game's final season, after which the seasons will enter a constant rotation instead of adding something completely new. Season 30 will repeat the themes of Season 25, which means it is the first season to introduce the rotation system that will remain in the game forever.

Diablo 3’s 30th season is called The Lords of Hell and will allow players to infuse their characters with the essence of Hell Lords. This is the main mechanic of the season, just like all the way back in S25.

Soul Shards in Diablo 3 Season 30

The main mechanic of this current season is using the soul shards in order to fuse with the essence of Hell Lords. There are 7 different Soul Shards that players can find, and each one of them provides its own unique power. Shards are divided into Prime Evil and Lesser Evil categories.

Each shard can also be upgraded up to 3 times with a special new item called Hellforge Ember. Hellforge embers can be obtained from any in-game activity, however, the highest chance to get them is from Great Rift 75s and above.

The Shards cannot be traded but can be salvaged to be used in Caldesann’s Despair. There are 7 types of soul shards, and we have prepared a full breakdown of each and every one of them.
