Here’s something new that’s just been discovered and likely to have just been unlocked by Blizzard, a new secret area. A new portal to Kanai’s Stomping Grounds can now be opened up and you can fight with Kanai’s soul. It was thought you needed the Staff of Herding to open the portal but it appears that’s not the case.

    To make this happen you need to:

    • Go to the Immortal Throne in Sescheron, Act 3.
    • Kanai’s soul will wake up and open a portal
    • Enter the Stomping Grounds and fight Kanai.

    Here it is in action.

    Update: Blizzard has replied to a couple of threads explaining this new bonus feature, which will be available only during March.

    Nevalistis: The Kanai event has actually been present since Patch 2.4.0 launched, but is only available during March – the real world birth month of Kevin Kanai Griffith, the artist for whom Kanai’s Cube (and King Kanai) is named.

    For those of you who may not know, Kevin was a talented and dedicated member of the Diablo III development team who passed away in October of 2014 from a rare form of cancer. If you’d like to read more about Kevin, we included a short biography of his contributions to Diablo (and Blizzard as a whole) in the Kanai’s Cube preview.

    This event is a chance for folks to get to adventure with Kanai one more time. We hope you enjoy the opportunity as much as we do.

    Also thanks to site reader Peter, who was one of the first to find this bonus content on the EU server long before March 1st unlocked it for Americas players.
