Are you just now jumping into Diablo 3? With the game's second season offering a fresh start for everyone, now's a good time to dive into this hack-n-slash. But if you haven't played before — or if you only played when Diablo 3 or its Reaper of Souls expansion first launched — you may need a bit of a refresher.
Season 2 has arrived in Diablo 3, which means it's time to roll a brand-new character and get to leveling so you can climb the seasonal leaderboards. If you've been away from the game for a while, seasons are designed to lure you back in, offering a fresh start and a chance to earn for season-specific loot and achievements. Are the new toys of season 2 enough to get you back into the game?
