    Typical Guardian drop?

    Blizzard has announced a huge community buff to help players vault into the new gear and new testing on the PTR, as Season Two testing gets underway. Huge Diablo 3 PTR Community Buff:

    PTR Season 2: Community Buffs Active

    As Season 2 begins on PTR, we realize it may be challenging to level up and gear effectively with a short testing window. In order to facilitate Seasonal testing, particularly for our new Conquests and Seasonal Legendaries, we’re activating several Community buffs to help you along the way.

    The following buffs will be active on the PTR for all characters (both Seasonal and Non-Seasonal) once Season 2 begins:

  • 300% Bonus Experience Earned
  • 2000% Bonus Chance to Find Legendaries
  • Double Goblins
  • Double Blood Shards
  • These buffs will be available for a limited time and will not last the full duration of the PTR, so if you plan on testing Season 2 Conquests, now’s the best time to jump in and take advantage of them!

    As always, your feedback is appreciated and we thank you for participating in our latest testing phase.

    I glanced at this post and was like, “oh, double legs. Nice.” And then I looked more closely and counted the zeroes… TWO THOUSAND PERCENT??!? I played a couple of hours last night and found maybe 30 legs doing T6 rifts and some GRifts, of which 7 or 8 were Ancient. Repeating that with 2000% is going to be insane.

    Remember last week when we were discussing the potential of an Item Vendor on the PTR to let players gear up in legendaries more quickly for testing. And the Blue CM was doing his job and defending the current policy and saying, “No no, testing drop rates is part of the PTR and we can’t just spit out items from a leaf blower.”

    Try that again today. “Welcome to *CLANG* the *CLANG* Diablo 3 *CLANG* PTR. Please *CLANG* *CLANG* test *CLANG* the *CLANG* *CLANG* new *CLANG* *CLANG* *CLANG* changes *CLANG* *CLANG* to *CLANG* *CLANG* stuff!”*CLANG CLANG CLANG CLANGCLANGCLANGCLANGCLANG*


    Update: Season Two is set to start later this evening, and this community buff will go live with it, but you’ll have to make a new Seasonal character to enjoy the buff. That means level 1, no paragon points, no gear, no artisans, etc. I’m going to do it; just for the experience of leveling up a new char with 2000% legendary drop rates.
