    There’s a substantial community buff running on the Diablo 3 Asian server this weekend, with +100% multiplicative bonuses to DiabloWikiGold Find and DiabloWikiExperience. The event runs from midnight Oct 31 through Monday, November 3rd. It’s not yet known if we’ll see this same buff on the US/EU servers, but it seems likely. (News breaking on the Asian Realm first is usually due to the time difference.)

    Here’s a translated quote from the official Korean site’s announcement. Halloween Weekend Diablo 3 EXP/Gold Buff:

    We would like to invite you to the Festival of the top players of the Ancient Fallen Souls. All connected to the gun from which platform this weekend, Diablo III players will receive 100% more coins you kkeseoneun find additional experience bonus and 100% bonus .

    As a bonus applied before they secured a bonus this bonus will be added to the existing numerical methods for multiplication (item, altar, projection of the pool, conqueror points, etc.) , will be applied in excess of the upper limit of the basic additional coins acquired 300%.

    100% Bonus with 100% additional gold coins found additional bonus EXP event period are as follows: ( Local time)

  • PC version : October 31 midnight Friday – Monday November 3 23:59
  • Console Version: October 31 Friday 16:00 – Tuesday November 4 16:59
  • So I hope you enjoy your time in the Diablo III!

    halloween-pumpkin2012-3As always, some of the translations from Korean are delightful. I want an exp bonus from “projection of the pool!” That sounds much tastier than just a Pool of Reflection, and who wouldn’t prefer “Conqueror Points” to “Paragon Points?”

    The time is unclear in the translation, but the bonus will indeed begin at midnight tonight, aka as soon as Friday/Halloween begins, and it runs all day Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, ending at midnight Monday night.

    Update: The buff is now live on the EU realm, and here’s how it boosts your stats. A naked character on Torment 6:

  • No buff: 1600% bonus to EXP and Gold.
  • With buff: 3300% bonus to EXP and Gold.
  • As you can see, it’s actually more than double, it’s double +100%, and that’s on a naked character. It exponentials up with other bonuses; just sticking 50 paragon points into Gold Find raised mine (with the buff) to 4150%, which is an 850% increase from the 50% Paragon points bonus

    Somewhere between the High Heavens and the Pandemonium Fortress linger spirits who hunger for the company of wandering nephalem. . . .

    This weekend, we invite you to take part in a celebration honoring these ancient ghosts of the fallen. All mortals who log in to Diablo III this weekend on any platform will receive a +100% bonus to Gold Find and EXP! As with previous buffs, the bonuses provided will stack multiplicatively with existing in-game bonuses, including those provided by items, shrines, Pools of Reflection, and Paragon points.

    This bonus Gold Find and Experience period begins in the Americas region on Friday, October 31 at 12:00 a.m. PDT and ends on Monday, November 3 at 11:59 p.m. PST.
    Have a ghoulishly good time, heroes. If perchance you fall victim to the things that go bump in the night, be not afraid . . . you’ll have plenty of company on the other side.

    Great news for those of you without Halloween plans or a job on weekends. 🙁
