The Event

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

The Season 28 PTR

Season 27 is shaping up the be (one of) the longest season so far with almost 4 months and still no news regarding future updates. With the holidays starting now, we expect to hear about it soon after in early to mid January. With the hype around Diablo 4 and the long development time we expect this will be a massive update on Diablo 3's scale, and of course we'll be around to cover it all. Stay tuned!
