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 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!


Is that change coming for the EU servers too? Cuz our Anniversary buff expires in 2 hours.

Travis, if you could clarify, when the buff ends, is the rift keystone fragment rate also remaining? It would be a shame if it didn't as it makes it feel less like wading through molasses to get to rifts with the current buffed keystone fragment rates. It would make it so I didn't feel like Rift it Forward is the only way to play the game. :)

While I can't say for sure, I doubt he would have left that part out of the message if the keystone buff was to remain.

We can hope, meanwhile keep stacking fragments until 5am pst. :-)

For once Blizz, I can say, I am happy with a change your applyin! This is great news...I was scared I was gonna have to pull an all nighter in hopes to find more tal rashas.... drops still come and go for me, but their so much better then before!!! I find this pace is a perfect pace.... its nice to get upgrades without living , eating, and breathing this game. Just never roll it back. IT would be like going back 10 steps after making this giant leap forward!

What about rift keystones?


The double Rift Fragments buff will end at 5:00 a.m. PT tomorrow in the Americas. Perhaps it's a buff we'll bring back later, though! #ItCouldHappen

I would like to know though if Kadala is being affected by this.


It will not. It also won't affect Act-specific Legendary items from Horadric Caches.
