News from Blizzard that the Seasonal Hero check box is now functional and that Diablo 3 Ladders: Seasons are Live on the PTR!
Please note that over the course of the patch 2.1.0 PTR, we may periodically “end” a Season to test the rollover process and ensure that Seasonal character data migrates correctly. To get the most out of this PTR, we will likely start and end a Season several times before our public test phase concludes.

Seasonal Legendary items are not yet enabled and therefore will not drop in the current build of the patch 2.1.0 PTR. We’re currently working to enable Seasonal Legendaries with the next PTR build and will provide an update in this thread once they’re live.
The ability to Salvage All is a perk that’s unlocked once your Blacksmith reaches level 12. So while this feature is available in Seasons, it may take you some time to reacquire it.
One of the ironies is that since the PTR is a fresh new realm, anyone could simulate a Season at any time on the PTR, simply by creating a new character there and playing, instead of copying over your existing account. But it’s different when everyone can do it together!
I know a lot of players are very interested in the fresh start a season will allow in the live game, but are you guys going to test it out now on the PTR? I don’t really see the point in trying out PTR seasons that are going to be ended several times during the testing cycle? I guess if you’ve got the time to play and want to try starting from scratch, to test which classes or parties (if you’re doing it with friends) level up the fastest, it’s a way to hone your skills in advance of it going live.
