Raise Some Hell

Ages ago, angels and demons birthed your world in a forbidden union. Now they've come to claim it. Stand tall among Sanctuary's meek and wicked to battle walking corpses, horrifying cultists, fallen seraphs, and the Lords of Hell. When the High Heavens and the Burning Hells war, humanity must be its own salvation.

If I had not started on PC and collected so many achievements, level ups and items... I would totally start on console. This game is so flawless and perfectly working over there. A whole new experience with fitting and satisfying controls.

And now you can also play it anywhere you go with the switch. Very exciting.

Too bad I played so much on PC already that I don't want to start over again. Well, I don't even want to play it anymore after all these years of rifting.

The game is quality, and absolutely perfect to be played on the switch. But it feels really gross to be priced at $60 still. It's been over a year since any real new content. I think it's a $30 price point, maybe $40. But when new games like Dead Cells are only $35 for switch I don't think it's worth.

I agree that would be fair to price a porting for less, but I think the reason Blizzard chose to go full-price is to make a statement: "This porting is not of lesser quality than PC version". If you think, the act of remarking such principles is typical of Blizzard.

      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:
