Diablo Team Members Have Their Five-Year Anniversary Swords Made Into 2.4.1 Transmogs

Recommended Posts


What do you get for five years of service at your job?


I have often praised Blizzard for being a company with an outstanding culture. Not just you, the great community that have formed around the company, but also their internal culture. One great example of this is their years of service program which rewards long-term employees with unique and iconic items. 


Blizzard Icon Nevalistis

In 1996, we began a long-standing Blizzard tradition. For those who don’t know, Blizzard awards Legendary swag to employees for their years of service. The most iconic of these awards is the 5-Year Sword, an honor that many members of the Diablo team have earned in their long tenure. (Source)


The Diablo team have managed to make this particular tradition even more epic, and have committed two unique transmogs to the Diablo game in Patch 2.4.1. Those two unique transmogs are modelled on the swords given to members of the Diablo team. 


The transmogs seem quite rare according to the post, and sound like they only drop from the person who was actually given the sword in real life. Considering the entire Diablo team can be slayed in game, it is easy to figure out where to get the drops, if you're lucky enough.


You can head over and read the full post here


What do you think about this tradition, or the idea of the Transmogs that are now a part of Diablo? Let us know in the comments below!

      We finally have some more specific news on the Season 21 PTR delay and it seems that we'll be seeing it live tomorrow in the Pacific afternoon aka around midnight CET! The PTR brings with it a new seasonal power, 2 new sets, a whole lot of new legendary powers and more.

      Hi everyone
      Back with that update I promised. It’s a good one!
      We are aiming to have PTR up tomorrow afternoon (Pacific Time). We will update the blog posts and have threads up when things go live tomorrow.
      Thanks for all your patience on this. We are looking forward to the feedback!

      After the cinematic trailer/teaser, we now have the actual introduction to the game get the AI upscaling treatment, all the way to 8K with an added 60 FPS upgrade to boot! You can also see the direct comparison to the original version at the half-way mark, with the new version being significantly more... golden.

      The Diablo team is back from the prolonged weekend, with Memorial Day behind us, but they have some more bad news for the PTR, as not enough progress has been made on the issues and we still don't have any specific date for the launch. New community manager PezRadar clarified it's still aimed for this week, but they don't want to specific any date (but I'd say it's definitely looking to be Thursday or Friday if they don't postpone even more).

      No updates today unfortunately. Still hammering on the build here on our end. Still tracking for this week, but I don’t have any additional timeline updates. I would propose a date, but then I would feel awfully terrible if things didn’t hit that date!
      Will be back tomorrow if I have any new news. Thanks for all your patience everyone. I want to try the new sets and provide feedback on them just as much as you all!

      We have an update after the previously announced delay - it seems we won't be seeing the Season 21 PTR until sometime next week, after Monday as well since it's a federal holiday in the US.

      Unfortunately, with the testing needed, we can’t give an exact date but as soon as I have one, I will come in here and update.
      I can safely say that I would not expect it on Monday as that is a federal holiday here in the US. Once I hear more, I will update the group. Apologies again about the delay.
      Just a quick update on PTR, we discovered some issues that came up and are needing some additional QA time with the build as we want to make sure we get something out that is thoroughly vetted on our end. PTR will not be going live today due to these additional tests needed.
      We will keep you all informed on updates regarding PTR, but it is looking like it will now land sometime next week as we get this ready. Sorry for the confusion on delay on this one. We appreciate all the help and feedback we get during these PTR opportunities.

      It seems we won't be getting the PTR, DH and Necro sets, Seasonal buff etc today, as Blizzard have encountered some issues. As you want, you can check the the patch notes and Deadset's thoughts on the new changes.
