When does Season 30 end?

I have my “Placeholder” Characters for that. They never get rebirthed, but they have completed the Campaign. This is easy for me since I stopped playing all Classes. Demon Hunter is my main Class. I create a Seasonal Crusader to craft, reforge and enchant items for my Templar. Sometimes I may play a different Class just for fun. But, when I’m through with them I delete them and salvage their gear.

Yah, it’s a bit of a juggling act for me as I am not willing or able to get rid of any of my holder chars. I have 7 normal and 1 HC that are perm forever. The remaining slots are used to play a season then I delete the seasonal ones when I am done with them except for my main seasonal DH which stays til the next season begins and gets transferred over.

I’d be doing this too if there were more character slots.

Ideally I would have 4x character slots for each class to use in NS… 2 permanent for SC and 2 permanent for HC.

And additional 3x character slots for use in seasons would also be needed (though I’d be happy with 7x slots for seasons for those who play all classes each season).

I wouldn’t need two accounts if this was the case.

This is what I am going with. It has been the norm the last several seasons that the old one ended the Sunday before the next one started. As usual, more great Blizz communication.

I think they announced S29 ending when they announced the start date for S30, which was like 2 days before S29 ended. Fortunately for S29, there was only a handful of people playing after a week or two, so not many were affected.


I think April 7 makes the most sense. If it was any earlier or later I think they would let us know so we can prepare. But then again, the Devs are not know for providing relevant information.


Seasons start on Fridays. Seasons end on Sundays. Non-emergency patches are applied to live on Tuesdays. So, working backwards…

Friday, April 12 = Season 31 start
Tuesday, April 9th = Latest that the patch can be applied to live servers (non-emergency)
Sunday, 7th April = Latest that Season 30 can end

As that’s just 10 days away, you’d think they’d have a Season 30 Ending announcement post by now, right?


That’s Sunday the 7th April.


I am going to miss Soul Shards, lol.

I’ve had a lot of fun this season, kinda hate to see it end. As someone who didn’t even start the game until S28, though, I am looking forward to being able to slot whatever I want in each of the 3 Cube slots.

Duly amended.
(I was in a rush)


Confirmed by blue post…


Question for you dear admin. Once the season finished, what is next? I was playing today, then, I left for a break, and when I come back season has gone!

Next is season 31, starts on Friday afternoon… until then you can always play non-season.

Unfortunately, if you wanted to practice for next season, you only had until the season ended, as the altar effects how things work.

I guess if you haven’t used the Americas server for either SSF/Non SSF, you still have a few hours to test.

Season 30 ended

Asia 2024-04-07T04:00:00Z 5 PM KST
Europe 2024-04-07T04:00:00Z 5 PM CEST
Americas 2024-04-07T04:00:00Z 5 PM PDT

I live in North America on the East Coast. So, for me, Season 30 end times are:

Asia 2024-04-07T04:00:00Z 4 AM EDT
Europe 2024-04-07T04:00:00Z 11 AM EDT
Americas 2024-04-07T04:00:00Z 8 PM EDT

PDT, CEST, KST - attached to ciities in the respective region… very neat… :slight_smile:

And, to add to my Post #23 above:

Season 31 begins

Asia 2024-04-12T04:00:00Z 5 PM KST
Europe 2024-04-12T04:00:00Z 5 PM CEST
Americas 2024-04-12T04:00:00Z 5 PM PDT

Which, for me is:

Asia 2024-04-12T04:00:00Z 4 AM EDT
Europe 2024-04-12T04:00:00Z 11 AM EDT
Americas 2024-04-12T04:00:00Z 8 PM EDT

And for me it’s

Asia 2024-04-12T08:00:00Z CEST
Europe 2024-04-12T15:00:00Z CEST
Americas 2024-04-13T00:00:00Z CEST

Strange; same for me. :wink:
By 5pm Europe should be 70 on Asia and by 2am Americas should be on 70 in Europe too. Too bad the regions are not closer, otherwise you could get all 3 to 70 without sleep issues… :slight_smile:

I assume by “regions” you mean “servers”. But, that wouldn’t work unless everybody in the world that played D3 was in the same time zone as the centralized servers. In other words: If all the servers were placed closed together and it was Friday, on the 12th at 5 PM PDT it would still be Saturday, on the 13th at 3 AM MSK.

Was “looking” for a normal sleep-wake cycle. “Best” (for me) would be e.g. Bermuda (UTC-3), Copenhagen (UTC+2) and Christmas Island (UTC+7). Them three would build a nice Bermuda triangle. :wink: And in 15 hours one can easily bring chars from all three server regions :wink: to 70 and have normal eat and sleep times… :slight_smile:
