There’s a holiday event coming to Diablo 3 as well! You can get gifts from your regular mob-killing activities, and those gifts have some resources and could even have pets and cosmetics!

We wish you one Hell of a holiday season!

Winter has befallen Sanctuary—and with it, a fresh layer of demonic trickery has coated the land. During this time of year, mortals exchange gifts to spread holiday cheer, but the Burning Hell’s helpers have thwarted this celebration by stealing all the gifts for their own nefarious purposes.

Restoring this time of glee rests squarely on your shoulders, Nephalem. Can you save this Hellish Holiday?

Slay Hell’s Helpers to Recover Gifts

From December 16, 11:00 a.m.–February 5, 11:00 a.m. PST, you’ll need to put the sword to Treasure Goblins and Greater Rift Guardians for a chance at recovering a Gift. Because of their hardiness, Greater Rift Guardians have an increased chance of dropping a Gift. Sanctuary’s denizens were especially generous in their offerings to one another this year, ranging from helpful resources to rarefied gear—here is what you can potentially receive from any recovered Gifts:

Each Gift will always contain the following items:

Five Khanduran Rune, Caldeum Nightshade, Arreat War Tapestry, Corrupted Angel Flesh, and Westmarch Holy Water

Arcane Dust

Each Gift could also contain one of the following items:

May your holidays be full of demons to slay!
