Diablo 4's story-free season and Dragonflight's loot piñata

Ep. 474

Loot for everyone! Join us this week as we discuss Diablo 4's latest season theme: Loot Reborn, which seems to skip story to focus entirely on the massive itemization changes arriving with Season 4. (We're a little disappointed.) Plus the trials and tribulations of Dragonflight Season 4, which continues its Awakened raid rotation with a return to Aberrus and Zaralek Cavern, featuring plenty of upgraded loot to gear up alts and mains. Unfortunately Fyr'alath owners are stuck with bug preventing Dragonflight Legendaries from being fully upgraded — but don't worry, it's already been fixed.
