Season Theme

Season 27 introduces Light’s Calling, our new seasonal theme. Valiant Nephalem who recover Angelic Crucibles, a new consumable item, may use them to Sanctify any equippable Legendary item, infusing it with one of three new class-specific powers at random. We wanted to use Angelic Crucibles to lean into the expertise of each class, further exemplifying its respective prowess, but through a nuanced lens. The High Heavens are home to ethereal splendor, bursting with boundless radiance—we wanted to provide players with a taste of untainted power as doled out from Heaven itself.

Season 27 introduces Angelic Crucibles. These are a new consumable allowing Nephalems to sanctify their Legendary Items. Sanctifying an item reforges it with Primal Ancient stats and also adds a random Class-specific Sanctified Power. There are 3 exclusive Powers available per Class:


  • Sanctified Hammer of the Ancients
  • Sanctified Whirlwind
  • Sanctified Wrath of the Berserker

Demon Hunter

  • Sanctified Vengeance
  • Sanctified Cluster Arrow
  • Sanctified Strafe


  • Sanctified Death Nova
  • Sanctified Army of the Dead
  • Sanctified Command Golem


  • Sanctified Arcane Orb
  • Sanctified Magic Missile
  • Sanctified Storm Armor


  • Sanctified Fist of the Heavens
  • Sanctified Falling Sword
  • Sanctified Blessed Hammer


  • Sanctified Wave of Light
  • Sanctified Way of the Hundred Fists
  • Sanctified Seven-Sided Strike

Witch Doctor

  • Sanctified Haunt
  • Sanctified Horrify
  • Sanctified Gargantuan

Some builds benefit more than others from Sanctified Items. We will have a dedicated guide for the full details on how each of these powers work and how to best implement them into your build!
Brand-new Guides for the reworked Trag'oul's Avatar Death Nova Necromancer, Armor of Akkhan Condemn Crusader and Tal Rasha's Elements Meteor Wizard are also in the works!
