    Greed’s Domain: Bring a shovel.

    With Patch 2.1 approaching the live stage, Blizzard is throwing players a golden party this weekend, with extra Gold Find for everyone.

    Our first major content update for Reaper of Souls is almost here! In preparation for patch 2.1.0 and the new content it brings, all players who log into Diablo III this weekend will receive a +50% bonus to Gold Find.

    This bonus Gold Find period begins in the Americas region tomorrow, August 22, at 12:00 a.m. PDT and ends on Tuesday, August 26, at 3:00 a.m. PDT (when maintenance begins). Please note that this buff will stack multiplicatively with existing bonuses including those provided from items and Paragon points.

    Thank you so much for your feedback, your patronage, and for being a part of our community. We hope you have fun this weekend, and we’ll see you in patch 2.1.0!

    As the Blue notes, the +50% is multiplicative. It won’t just add 50% more to the 1500% Gold Find you already have, but will stick the 50% on the left side of the equation so your increased DiabloWikiGold Find from gear, DiabloWikiParagon points, and DiabloWikiDifficulty level will be multiplied by the 50%… making for some really big, DiabloWikiGreed-sized stacks.

    I’m curious about the larger issue of Gold in Diablo 3. Is there enough? Is a bonus weekend really a perk, to many/most players? Are most people still broke, in Reaper of Souls?

    Back in early RoS everyone who didn’t bring a bunch of gold over from D3v was broke all the time, due to gem upgrade and enchanting costs. Eventually though, most players (especially in Softcore, where gear doesn’t vanish) had upgraded their gems and enchanted their best items. Also, back in May in Patch 2.0.5 Blizzard changed Gold Find to be multiplicative, which hugely boosted the gold stacks on higher Torment levels.

    So… is there enough gold now? Is 50% more for a weekend a perk? Survey time:

    Do you now find enough gold in Diablo 3?
