Anniversary December 31

General Discussion
Just checking if you are going to keep to your word that this special event is going to be back on December 31. I remember you(D3 team) stating it would be a annual event like the March event for Kevin.
My hope is that it has different rewards(transmogs & pets). It would also be cool if monsters changed too. Even better make a D2(Baal & Meph) theme this time around.
“Big Dreams”
Yep. :)
Ayeee

YaaaY!
A blue post? Can it be real? I better say a big congrats

Happens for (almost) the entire month of January, and it's an annual event like Kanai's Stomping Ground.

It's a half-arsed recreation of the events of Diablo 1 in D3. A couple unique monsters like Leoric and Butcher get their vintage looks back, but everything else is just renamed D3 monsters.
The "Hidden" in the Halls of the Blind are just the Accursed. The Black Knights are the renamed Revenant Soldiers from Westmarch.......and Diablo is a renamed Nekarat (Act 4 keywarden).

They use the Korvus levels for the Cathedral, the Cave side-dungeons for the Catacombs/Caves and Halls of Agony for the Hell levels. And then there's that godawful so-called "retro" graphic filter that is supposed to make the game look older but instead just makes everything lag. And you can't turn it off.

The transmogs/pets will still be the same. You only get the Cleaver and the Cow/Butcher pet.

If you only comment on the paragon problem but sadly the Blizzard team is nowhere to be found on threads about the REAL problems of diablo 3.

It's easy to confirm with a quick "yep" that an event is coming back. It's not so easy to post about other topics that haven't had a decision made on them yet.
Blizzard, for this event, please create a special one-time use Gem that can be used by all characters, to reroll a primal, and put a total limit on the number of Gems a player can ever optain.

What you say it's totally irrelevant when they don't even consider making one in the first place. Totally agree with Raijin ( :D ), paragon is the biggest problem for people who play only for the leaderboards. And since it's the only real end game D3 has, it's still a core problem. Not even botting would be significant if you fix that. Yet people are down voting those, who mention it. It's beyond my understanding.
Will there be new things this year for the event? Or just a simple repeat of last year's?

Just curious, had a lot of fun earning the achievements and getting the xmogs, looking forward to doing it again this year.

LE GASP!

Cow pet? Butcher Pet? Will these be the same again this year or... new pets? :D :D :D

Inquiring minds want to know >.>
Would be nice if the legendary gem didn't flat-out suck...

Yeah, sure......

The event is actually very cool.

I just wish it would've a greatly increased difficulty level so that we could have fun in it with our endgame heroes. Those who would find it too hard, could simply play in easy difficult setting.

Pretty much for the same reasons why something like endgame campaign mode have been asked for so passionately: grifting shouldn't be the only thing to do in the late game: https://us.battle.net/forums/en/d3/topic/20747235014
