Diablo® III

Am I the only one seeing this bird?

We all know and enjoyed Blizzard's easter eggs throughout the years, but this one seems undocumented yet.
Whenever I cast Slow Time with Miasma rune, a strange flamingo like bird would appear from my wiz and run a straight line outward, and disappeared a few yards beyond the bubble barrier.
Has anyone else noticed this strange unclickable creature? Or am I using too much disintegrate spell ;)

It's a decaying chicken per connotations of "miasma." LOL.

What is a miasma?

The rotting chicken represents putrefaction, putrefaction that is caused by a miasma. Blizzard wanted to show that this slow time bubble is literal, not figurative like a "miasma of political corruption" or a "miasma of despair and poverty."

noted. what does miasma do again?

Slow time effects cling to your opponent after they leave the bubble.

I have never used that rune. LOL.

It looks bigger because he's zoomed in.

Also I can't believe I've never noticed that decaying chicken before. D3 does seem to have a bird obsession.. you've got The Fowl Lair, the Vicious Gray Turkey, Manajuma's Gory Fetch...
