In Season 9, Chapter III of the Season Journey held some surprises. In past Seasons it was possible for players to earn an objective by completing five Bounties, in all five Acts, during one game.
I always complete the Bounties in all five Acts at the beginning of each Season. To me, it was something fun to do while leveling up a new character. It also was something a low level character could do that would earn one of the many Season Journey objectives.
To my surprise, Season 9 changed the one objective into five separate ones, giving each Act its own objective. I discovered this while I was still trying to complete Chapter I.
It should be noted that I did not complete the Bounties in order of the Acts. I skipped around, instead (based on which Act had the extra Cache.).
It was more efficient to do it that way, and I had no idea that there were objectives attached to individual Acts when I started Season 9.
Arreat’s Most Wanted: Obtain an Act III bounty cache.
Caldeum’s Most Wanted: Obtain an Act II bounty cache.
Heaven’s Most Wanted: Obtain an Act IV cache.
Westmarch’s Most Wanted: Obtain an Act V bounty cache.
Tristram’s Most Wanted: Obtain an Act I bounty cache.
Hey There Kadala: Spend Blood Shards at Kadala. Kadala has a 10% chance to give you a Legendary.
The Rock: Craft a Gem of Imperial or greater quality at the Jeweler. Socketing an Emerald into your weapon increases your Critical Hit Damage and its a big damage boost.
Level I Season Cubist: Extract a Legendary power using Kanai’s Cube.
Master: Complete a Nephalem Rift on Master difficulty or higher.
Watch Me Araneae-Neae: Kill Queen Araneae at level 70 on Master difficulty or higher.
The Choice is Yours: Kill the Siegebreaker Assault Beast at level 70 Master difficulty or higher.
SEASON JOURNEY (CHAPTER III) COMPLETE!
Players that finished Chapter III of the Season Journey in Season 9 received the second Haedrig’s Gift. What was inside depended upon what class opened it. I was playing a Wizard, so I received the next two pieces of the Firebird’s Finery set.
The flavor text on the Firebird’s Pinions says: “I have discovered hollows beneath the surface of these shoulder plates. They appear to trap the fleeting arcanum thrown off by traditional casting and draw it back into the mage!” – Quov Tsin
The flavor text of the Firebird’s Tarsi says: “The metal plates of these greaves hang on swivels, permitting them to swing. The plates exaggerate the soma of a casting wizard. From a design standpoint, truly remarkable feats!” – Landes the Keeth
