In the dark realms of Diablo 4, Season 3 is about to unleash a whirlwind of thrilling updates. Brace yourselves for leaderboards, extra stash space, and a long-awaited addition that is as adorable as it is practical—the steampunk-inspired Seneschal companion. Prepare to be enchanted by these clinky-clanky little fellas, as they take the spotlight and outshine their cosmetic counterparts from the previous game.
The new pets in Diablo 4 bear a striking resemblance to the Dwemer constructs found in The Elder Scrolls universe. Specifically, the upcoming companion resembles a more amiable and compact version of the Dwarven spider. But here's the exciting twist: this clockwork ally joins you in the heat of battle, working in harmony with your unique build to conquer the treacherous dungeons of Diablo 4 Season 3—the infamous Vaults. Not only is this clockwork pet aesthetically pleasing, but it is also highly customizable and genuinely invaluable.
You have the power to tailor your Diablo 4 pet to suit your playstyle by utilizing the new governing and tuning stones earned from the Vaults. With governing stones, you can determine your Seneschal's combat performance and select its attacks. Then, using tuning stones, you can further fine-tune and adjust these chosen skills to your heart's content. For each companion, you can equip two governing stones, and for each of these stones, you can apply three tuning stones to enhance their abilities.
But wait, there's more! As you progress, the possibilities expand even further. By leveling up the stones and fusing duplicates, you can increase the XP and potency of these mighty artifacts. The Season of the Construct boasts a total of 12 governing stones and 27 tuning stones of various rarities. These range from stones that grant dragon-like fire powers to supportive tuning stones that enhance attack speed.
Yet, the Seneschal companion's true charm lies in the fact that it is a genuine pet. In a delightful revelation, Blizzard confirms that you can indeed pet your construct, sealing the deal on Season 3's most exceptional addition. While I had always suspected that pets would find their way into the RPG, I am overjoyed to witness their arrival alongside other core features, bringing forth these precious robot arachnids with their immense potential to aid your builds.
