Season 9 started right around the same time that the new Darkening of Tristram event did. (Darkening of Tristram appeared early January 2017). I decided to try and focus on both, and didn’t end up getting as far as I wanted to with either one.

For Season 9, I decided to do a Season Rebirth of my hardcore Wizard, Sparkle. My hope was that this would be the Season I finally got her to level 70. I was also hoping to obtain all the pieces of the Firebird’s set.

A New Start: Complete 5 Bounties.  Open up the Waypoint Map in Adventure Mode to see what Bounties are available.

Begin Again: Complete a Nephalem Rift.  Click the Nephalem Obelisk in town while in Adventure Mode to start a Nephalem Rift.

Seasonal Socketing: Socket 5 gems into your gear.

Two Minds: Kill Belial.

A Life With Meaning: Raise the Blacksmith to level 10. Leveling up the Blacksmith unlocks access to higher level weapon and armor recipes.

Just A Hobby: Raise the Jeweler to level 10. Leveling up the Jeweler unlocks access to higher level gem recipes.

Watch Yourself: Raise the Mystic to level 10.  Leveling up the Mystic enables her to enchant more item types and unlocks new Transmogrify looks.


A change took place in Season 9 that involved Dyes.  In the past, some vendors had certain Dyes that players could use to change the color of their armor. As of Season 9, players can access all the varieties of Dyes at The Mystic.

Personally, I like this change. It makes sense for The Mystic, who players go to when they want to transmogrify their armor, would have the Dyes, that change the color of armor. It also saves time, because players don’t have to run around Sanctuary looking for the color of Dye that would be perfect for their latest transog.

Spitfire: Kill Urzael.

Forged In Fire: Reach level 50.
