Season 25 really came at the perfect time, as it celebrates Diablo's 25th anniversary, and so we're getting 7 Soul Shards based off the Prime and Lesser Evils as the main seasonal mechanic! We've seen them mentioned in the season preview, but now we can take a look at them from the PTR with their full stats as well!
ARX7 gathered them all up, as well as the Hellforge Embers we'll be using to upgrade them up to level 3, so let's take a look!
To remind ourselves: the first 3, the Prime Evil Shards, go into helmets while the other 4 go into weapons, as looking at them shows us some very Ethereal weapon-like stats, featuring big general buffs to pretty much any and everything, as well as a bigger focus on HP/defense for the Primes (emulating the gems that usually get put into helmets) and damage for the Lessers (same emulation for weapon gems), which each also having a unique and pretty powerful effect. The above are all rank 3, and the progression will go from the stats buffs alone on rank 1, then the unique ability at rank 2, and finally the second unique ability/buff to the first ability on rank 3, depending on shard (and since it's still the PTR the numbers might change as well).
These will be dropping from all content in the game, with Soul Shards having a greater chance to drop off bosses specifically.
