- Regular "Shrine of Rakanishu" event:
Kill the summoning stones, defeat the Avatar of Rakanishu and destroy the altar. The altar may drop a (blue) Rakanishu's Blade depending on whichever difficulty it is. The Avatar will drop loots worthy of a major event reward.
- Pandemonium Rakanishu
The entrances of the event will shine with orange light to warn you that it's a Pandemonium event. The summoning stones can now only be killed after slaying the Avatar of Rakanishu. The Fallen mobs around are also stronger, same with the ones summoned. The Avatar of Rakanishu is also be stronger (but more importantly, more tanky) and will no longer wait for the summoning stones to die before spawning.
Upon completing the event (altar can only be destroyed after the Avatar and summoning stones are slain/destroyed), you have an increased chance of getting a legendary version of the Rakanishu's Blade. This legendary item may or may not be account bound.
The Rakanishu's Blade will have some random "unique" affixes, such as turning the wielder "lightning enchanted" ie unleashing lightning upon being hit (small cooldown, of course), increasing lightning spell damage by X%, converting all damage to lightning or a chance of casting Nova when you successfully hit an enemy.
- Regular "The Old Man" (Purple Tree in act 1)
Upon opening the very tempting shiny chest, you are being ambushed by vicious tree-like demons. You must either grab whatever loots you can and run, or be prepared for an epic battle to the death.
- Pandemonium Old Man
Upon opening the chest, the entrance (which had orange light to warn you) will be blocked by black magic. You cannot TP out or run away. Allies outside the event may still port back to town and spawn on someone who's in the event. The Old Man is now much stronger, as he will move slightly faster, release poison faster, more HP and attack faster... but most importantly, more and more demon-like trees will be awakened by the Old Man to help him kill you. You must defeat the Old Man, or risk seeing the entire area filled with poison. You might need some allies for this one. You can't simply let the number of trees go up unchecked... unless you have really high DPS and sustain.
Upon defeating the Old Man, you will have an increased chance of getting a legendary item (let's not kid ourselves. Chances are already low, and it will still remain "low")
- Regular Jar of Soul
Survive 60 seconds against skeletons, slow at first, and more and more frenzied later on.
- Pandemonium Jar of Soul
Survive 120 seconds (I would increase the time if I could...) against skeletons. The first 60 seconds is similar to the regular Jar of Soul. However, at the 61 second mark, a champion pack will spawn (spread out). At this point, there's already a lot of skeletons that is spawning... but there will be new skeletons that spawns. Skeleton Archers will start spawning at the 60 second mark. There will also be shield bearer that spawns at the 90 second mark. At the 120 second mark, a final champion pack will spawn. At this point, skeletons will keep spawning until the champion pack is defeated. Those skeletons (not the champions) that spawn after the 120 seconds mark will reward no XP or loots.
The Jar of Soul will naturally be surrounded by orange light if it's the harder version. In pandemonium version, the doors are closed tight and you may not TP out.
What do you guys think about it? Do you have more ideas to share? :D
