In honor of Diablo III's two-year anniversary, Blizzard is offering a special week long bonus that turns the Legendary Drop chance percentage way up.

Starting tomorrow, Thursday, May 15 at 12:00 a.m. PT and ending on Thursday, May 22 at 5:00 a.m. PT, Diablo III players on PC and Mac (sorry console gamers) will receive double Rift Fragments as well as a +100% boost to their chance to find Legendary items. The buff applies to all characters and stack with similar bonuses.

Blizzard recently launched its Reaper of Souls expansion for Diablo III, which we liked quite a bit. You can read our review by heading here.



Our Take
This new practice of incentivizing play during specific periods of time is a smart way to get players to continue playing. It's not a new idea by any means – Call of Duty has been offering double XP weekends for some time – but it's a practice I like.
