Anniversary Buff Update

Hello folks,

I come bearing exciting news. Due to the overwhelming popularity of our Anniversary buff we have decided to keep the increased Legendary drop rate once the two-year anniversary celebration ends. Once the buff is disabled tomorrow morning, you will find that the new base line drop rates for Legendary items will be the same as those you have all enjoyed for the last week.

Happy hunting and link the loot!


Additional details:
  • This buff was implemented in all regions on 5/21. For more info, click here.
  • The double Rift Keystone Fragment buff will end at 5:00 a.m. PT on 5/22. We may bring this fun, but temporary buff back again at some point in the future!
  • The increased Legendary drop rate does not affect Act-specific Legendary items from Horadric Caches.

Blizzard does listen to their customers.

I'm glad that this change was made, and I honestly believe Blizzard used the anniversary as a way of beta testing its results.

Either way, kill two birds with one stone.

Totally makes sense. New expansion will be out most likely next year allowing players to farm for lvl 70+ gear again, might as well give the fan base a comfortable legendary drop rate till then so they can fully enjoy ROS till that time.

Blizz, I commend you guys. I know that it's hard finding a line between making money, "bringing diablo 3 to as many players as possible", and making customers happy, but this is a step in the right direction.

On behalf of the community, we thank you.
