Diablo 3 celebrating second birthday with loot boosts

Blizzard is celebrating Diablo 3's second birthday with double Rift Fragments and a boost to legendary item drops for a limited time.

7

Get out your party hats and streamers: Diablo 3 turns two years old today. And like most birthdays for two-year-olds, the celebration isn't so much about the tot himself as it is about everyone who knows him coming together at once.

This week, Blizzard is giving double Rift Fragments and a +100% boost on your chances of finding legendary items on the PC and Mac versions. The bonuses apply to all of your characters, and stack with other bonuses. The period has already started, and will last through next Thursday, May 22, at 5 AM PT. It seems like a good way to secure some new loot, while attracting back lapsed players who may not have dipped a toe in since before Reaper of Souls dropped.

        XP? What for? Only going to get me a couple extra paragon levels over a weekend, big deal.

          I'd use it to quickly level my last two characters to 70.

          Sure, it only takes a few hours, but with a boost it would take half that!

              i don't know but without boost you can power level someone to 70 in 2 hours so boost is pointless if you have a friend who is well geared

              I leveled one of my characters up rolling bounties in normal mode with a max level ruby in the helm. That was pretty quick due to how much xp the bounties give.

          I want to level all of my alternates to 70 so I have choices on what to play. Some of us took a long break from the game before the patch.

      I can't figure out a reason to play this game any more. You get cool stuff to go faster just to go to bump up to a level where you're going the same speed again. It's fun but I always get bored faster than everyone else.

      And it has been lovely! Got my DH to T1 comfortably, finally. More XP would be nice so I can start some HC characters.
