Players can battle alongside Chief Elder Kanai until March 31 and earn a transmog of his ghostly axe! 

A new event is available in the Sanctuary. Players that visit the Ruins of Sescheron and find Chief Elder Kanai can complete an event that rewards a special weapon transmog.

The spectral form of Chief Elder Kanai rises from his seat and beckons you to follow him as he opens up a mysterious portal. For the month of March, those who pay their respects to Elder Chief Kanai will find they can tag along with him on one more adventure.

Patch 2.3.0 was released on August 25, 2015 and introduced the Ruins of Sescheron and the powerful artifact hidden within, Kanai’s Cube. Players who tested this patch on the PTR may have recalled a mysterious message that would occasionally appears in The Immortal Throne: “The time is not right.” We ultimately removed the message because of confusion it was causing, but we didn’t remove the special event it referenced. From here on out, every March, you’ll be able to visit Elder Chief Kanai and tag along on a trip to his personal Stomping Grounds.

While a small easter egg, it is a treasured one, as this event allows us to share the experience with friends and fans alike of adventuring once more side by side with the late Kevin Kanai Griffith. Kevin was an artist on several projects at Blizzard, including World of Warcraft, Diablo III, and Reaper of Souls. He was lost to a rare form of cancer on October 17, 2014. For more information on Kevin and his exploits, you should check out our original preview on Kanai’s Cube.

While the world will never be the same without him and his beautiful art, we’re honored to have worked alongside a talented, positive, and inspiring individual—and even more so to have the chance to fight alongside him once more.

Your deeds of valor will always be remembered, Kevin.

Yea, I was a bit disappointed. I mean, it's neat that they are honoring one of their fellow co-workers but they could have done something ALOT different then a re-textured Skorn...

It's a nice gesture at all, but as event reward this is ridiculous. Just another proof about nobody develop this game yet.

      Blizzard confirmed they're working on multiple new Diablo projects and they will share more details later this year (probably at BlizzCon).
      In the latest video about Diablo released on Youtube, Associate Community Manager Brandy "Nevalistis" Camel confirmed that the team's working on more Diablo projects and they'll have more information to share later this year. She also briefly mentions Themed Seasons and it's likely they'll come up with a new theme for Season 15.

      Don't miss out on your chance to grab one!
      The only thing more elusive than a Rainbow Goblin in game is a Rainbow Goblin in real life, but here's your chance to grab one!
      To celebrate the Season of Greed, we are releasing a robust and thorough Goblin farming guide for your murderous, loot-craving pleasure! It will take you through a tried-and-tested goblin farming route, suggest some suitable builds and equipment adjustments for the purpose, and even shed some light on goblin farming metagame and etiquette.
      But enough talk - it's your turn to take blade and spell to their mischievous hides! While using our route (or your own!), take a screenshot with your Season 14 character and a double goblin spawn - and post it in the comments below. Your post will act as an entry in a random raffle to win one of the 20 plush toys we will be giving away.

      For the general rules of our giveaways, please refer to this post. The post-specific rules for this giveaway are as follows:
      You need to be on a Seasonal character. Make sure we can see your character and the goblins in the screenshot. (Console players, do your best with the pause screen, if necessary - we understand it is slightly more difficult to do this than on PC.) The giveaway will end on July 2, 2018 at 23:59 CEST. Multiple entries will be disqualified. Winners will be chosen at random after the contest ends. Grab your guide, grab your nephalem and get finding! You might even be lucky enough to find a Rainbow Goblin in-game and outside - as Abd Al-Hazir put it - a ludicrous notion, truly!
      This contest has now ended - winners will be contacted via PM once we have filtered spam entries, multiple entries and so on. Please note that this can take some time, but we will post here once everyone has been contacted.
