Diablo III Season 26: Welcome to my Echoing Nightmare
We don't regularly cover Diablo III, but this Season offers something novel.
In addition to the normal cosmetics, pets, and banner rewards, Season 26 of Diablo III has introduced a new event type, the Echoing Nightmare. Much like a "second level" of Greater Rift, you need a key (called a Petrified Scream) that is sometimes dropped by the bosses in a Greater Rift to enter an Echoing Nightmare. You use the Petrified Scream by transmuting it in your Kanai's cube in a level 70 game, upon which a new, ghostly portal will open. Even at lower paragon and gear levels, this can be a lucrative event, yielding solid experience as well as a range of goods such as
The seasonal gem: Whisper of Atonement, used to enhance your legendary socketed items
Once you enter the portal you will be in a large diamond shaped area, with pylons north, south, east and west of the zone in. There will be a countdown running to the beginning of the event. Your goal is simple: survive as long as possible, and when you are inevitably overwhelmed, get your loot out of the large chest that will appear. The faster you kill the spawning monsters, the faster they will appear. Like Greater Rifts, Echoing Nightmares max out at level 150, but there is no leader board for them and there doesn't seem to be much reason to focus on progression in these particularly.
A few tips we can already share:
Bane of the Powerful is wonderful here because of the bosses.
Other boss or elite killing powers are also valuable
Make good use of the pylons by going around the zone in one direction
The boss mixes differ from instance to instance, so be ready to adapt your play based on what you see
Hard crowd control doesn't seem to work, but slows and chills do
There are mini-events within the Nightmare such as:
Fallen Nephalem who explode on death
Hellish Machinations that spawn waves of lunatics
Deadly green meteors that fall from the sky
All in all, this is an interesting new event, that's fun and rewarding to explore. And it's nice to see Blizzard investing in Diablo III with some new content. Best of luck in Season 26 and remember, "
Few things embolden the spirit like a powerful enemy lying dead at your feet.
