D3 and Reaper of Souls on Sale

Diablo 3 and its first expansion, Reaper of Souls, are on sale at Best Buy. If you were waiting for it to buy the expansion, or if you want to buy them for a friend, this is probably the best time to do so. It is unknown how long the sale will last, so grab your copy asap!


Wyatt Cheng on Trial Rifts

Wyatt replied on a Reddit thread to a question about the current progress rate on Trial Rifts. They are still fine tuning the numbers for progression, but the idea is allowing people to progress at a much faster rate to a proper Greater Rift difficulty.

I think the trigger might have been actually completing a Greater Rift (or possibly placing in a high enough GR Tier) to unlock the more aggressive GR/RoT unlocks, has anyone else noticed this?
Hey guys,

Yes all of this is intentional. We haven't posted specifics because we are still trying to dial in the numbers.

The goal is for you to be able to skip ahead reasonably comfortably but we do not want players to find themselves "off the deep end" by skipping ahead to a Rift that is way too hard for them.

At the moment skipping ahead in the Realm of Trials is based on how many seconds you have left when you clear a wave. You can advance ahead between 1 and 6 waves depending on how many seconds you have left but I don't want to post specific numbers because we will hotfix this as needed and I don't want stale information floating out there.

I can also confirm that we changed the Rift key that you get for various waves as well as how far you skip ahead when you clear a Rift quickly. Those changes are intentional and again, I don't want to put specific numbers out at this time to avoid stale data as we iterate.
