It might be, I havent had a chance to try it out yet though. So its new content for me. Something I could use desperately in this game. :)
The Cultists started appearing at 4PM on Dec. 31. The portal in Old Tristram will start appearing on Jan. 4 at 4pm.

Be aware that there will be a small puzzle to solve in order to get the portal open, and you would serve yourself well to solve it firsthand, and don't go Googling it.
Collect the Cultists pages, run the event, collect the transmogs, and have fun. Be nice if Blizzard would release FREE "windowed D1" via Blizzard app to those with D3.

There's no puzzle to get the Darkening of Tristram portal open. The only puzzle is the proper order to get the recipe for Wirt's Leg and then the order to click the cows when you have the map of the stars.
its absolutely easy, when you start d3 and d1 music appears (i'd love to be able to hear it always). wait for it or use google or a better search engine
The precursor event has already started - if you hunt down the temporal cultists, and get 7 pages of a cultist's journal, you will get a portrait frame (and a finished achievement if you're after those).
As for the main event, it starts on Jan 4th.
WOW, It's amazing the downvotes you get for asking a simple question. I know people are angry at the things which have happened re: Diablo, and the developers. I HAD nothing to do with that, I enjoyed this event last year, and will enjoy it this year, maybe for the last time as I started playing WOW again, but as has happened since the release of MOP I've quit and restarted WOW as many times as the releases. I may end up going back to FF in 6 more months, or just quit gaming altogether, maybe that's what I should do and go back to reading and baking, then maybe I could perfect my pie crust.

For killing cultists for the pages? Yes, that has started already for those that still need that achievement.

Has the portal opened to the actual event itself? not until tomorrow, time varies on your location. I am eager to take my Crusader through once more as well!
The event started days ago.

Cultists started appearing from 16:00 PST 31st December.

The portal to old Tristram will be available from 16:00 PST 4th January.

Thanks StoneCold, SilverFox, Pja and Beast for the helpful replies! :)

The Icy Veins guide above is fantastic for a full breakdown of the event, and Rhykker's video walkthrough will help you know what to expect before you dive in. If you just want a quick overview (no spoilers), there's also our previous blog.

Also, just to clear up any confusion: each part of the event (i.e. the cultists appearing and the portal opening) start at the same respective times each year.

Why doesn't any blue-post appear in the ru-segment of forum? There are several same toplcs, aren't you see?

Anyway, thanks for your silence. We are smart enough to understand what does it mean.
