Double XP Weekend & Legendary Gem Rollback

Recommended Posts

The recently posted hotfixes should be live now and Blizzard's holding a double XP weekend as an apology for the delays starting this Friday.

Additionally, players that were using exploits to level up their gems will have them reverted to a rank that would have been legitimately achievable prior to the patch going live.

Hey all,

I know you've been eagerly awaiting an update, so a few things to share with you:

First, we extended the post cap on this thread. Let's try to keep discussion and feedback on this topic here as best we can to keep our General forums more organized.

Secondly, the hotfix has now been deployed. This should be applicable to all regions at this time. Thank you so much for your patience!

Lastly, we will be rolling back Legendary Gem levels to the maximum gem level that would have been legitimately achievable prior to the patch going live. As with all previous exploits, any additional actions we may take will not be discussed outside of our staff and offending individuals. 

We will be holding a double XP weekend starting Friday, July 14 at 5 p.m. PT and ending Monday, July 17 at 10 a.m. PT as an apology for the delays and our gratitude for your patience as we address this issue. Thank you to all who issued reports and helped us uphold the spirit of Play Nice, Play Fair!

Wait, this means we don't get Rise of the Stukov DLC today?

 

I'd love to bring some infested terrans and walking bunkers into my rifts!

It's hilarious that Blizz coding 'errors' cause 'illegal' activity, like to see that float in court (I was just following orders your honor!).  As usual the innocent are punished, imagine some poor dude working his necro and suddenly it is just rocking!  Happy Happy time, now it's his fault for being happy. Only snowflakes see this as evil, poor souls.

double XP *yawn*, now juicing the drop rate would be a proper 'sorry man'

and with all the noise made about a rollback coming, anyone with brains made another augment.

Is anything else doubled or is it strictly XP?

It's just XP.

I agree.  The double xp to me at least doesn't really mean much but double the drop rate would be a great "we are sorry."  It is a nice gesture as they really don't have to do anything.

      Some good news today, as the promised extra buff has arrived to Season 21 and we're getting double Horadric Caches! Each time you complete a bounty you'll be getting 2 chests, both affected by the difficulty you're playing at. This will not affect the Challenge Rift cache. The event starts in under an hour, at 8PM CEST, 11AM PDT.

      We also found out that future PTR test cycles will be longer, with an extra week of actual PTR testing when a new season comes.
      Double Bounties (source)
      Hello everyone –
      The trials this season brings upon a new event for the community. Starting from 11am PT today and through the end of Season 21, all bounties will be doubled. What does this exactly entail? All Horadric Caches earned from bounties will be doubled. This means that each time you complete bounties in an Act, you will now receive two Horadric Caches as opposed to just one. Double the bounty rewards!
      There are a few things to keep in mind with this effect:
      The bonus cache does benefit from difficulty level; it is essentially as though you completed twice the bounties. The rewards inside the Horadric Caches are otherwise unaffected; drop rates or the amount of individual rewards have not been altered. The bonus cache earned from Challenge Rifts is not affected; this is a separate type of cache.
      Check out our Game Guide for a list of bounty-exclusive Legendary items and more information on the Bounty system.
      On top of this, we would like to note that we plan on extending PTR testing timelines prior to each new season going forward. This will result in a slightly extended season, and will allow for 2 weeks of PTR testing for the community along with an additional week for the team to implement and work feedback/changes in before the season begins. The intention here is to make sure we can apply as much feedback as possible from the community during these PTR timelines while also giving us a good amount of time to test these changes before they go live.
      Thanks again. Happy slaying!

      After the recent Demon Hunter 150 clears, it's time for the second class to break that barrier in Season 21, as we now have a Barbarian max rift clear! Redditor Nexrate has done it, and done it twice it seems, as his first 150 clear was lost to some bugs on the leaderboards, but the second one remained.The build is a modified Rend Wrath of the Wastes, with Zei's instead of Stricken, using the seasonal power to clear everything up, with the big challenge being getting that snowball at the end (and aiming it properly) to finish off the boss in time, with the Coundiut before the boss spawned helping out a bit as well.
      As for the other classes, the closest is a GR 143 Necromancer, followed by a 142 Necro and Witch Doctor.

      After Wudijo's recent Rank 1 and World 2nd GR 150 clear, beating his World First clan-mate by almost 5 minutes, he's made a video detailing his journey to the top. We find out some truly impressive stuff: his refusal to simply grind paragon levels to make the task easier, the fact he plays along side a full-time job and had to sacrifice a lot of sleep, we get to hear about the many near-misses and how he had to learn to perfectly play around the seasonal theme, the fact it took him twice as many keys as he thought it would (5.5K), the fact he used 60 keys an hour, the fact he used as many keys as last season, when he was pushing on 6 classes and a lot more!

      Wudijo scored the world's fastest Solo Greater Rift 150 in time in Season 21 with his Demon Hunter after 5,500 used keys and weeks of attempts. Congrats!
      UPDATE: This is currently the world's second clear of Solo GR150, not world first as we thought, we apologize for the confusion!
      Placeholder for tweet 1289929742800449540   The player completed the rift and killed the Infernal Maiden with 1 minute and 4 seconds remaining on the timer.

      Here are the final moments of the run!

      It's time for some more weirdness as Wudijo is trying some crazy stuff! So how can someone get from level 1 to 70 in 5 seconds you might ask? Well it's easy! You just need 8 hours of torment 16 bounty farming, 1 crash where you almost lose 341 bounty caches on the ground, Custerian Wristguards and Avarice Band! But after that it's only 5 seconds of picking up all the gold and getting a whole lot of XP through the bracers! Enjoy:
