I’m not sure what the community event is, but right now on the US and EU realms all Diablo 3 characters are pulling an extra 50% experience bonus. This is 50% on top of all other bonuses, so if you’re running T6 for 1600% exp bonus, it’s 2400% right now. (And even larger if you’re doing multiplayer, wearing +exp% gear, etc.)
Cash in while the rewards are hot. Mira Eamon isn’t going to kill herself over and over and over again, after all.
Update: A blue post about this promotion went live on the Diablo 3 EU site, informing us it would run through March 24th, but that post vanished shortly afterwards. It later resurfaced on the US site, and includes a helpful tutorial video explaining the system changes in D3v2.
This hefty XP bonus gives your heroes a leg up on the new Paragon Leveling System, which just went live in patch 2.0.1. The new Paragon Leveling system not only allows ALL of your characters to share and contribute towards a single account-wide Paragon level, but it also grants bonus ability points with each Paragon level gained, which can be discretionally assigned to your character’s stats.
In addition to the Paragon Leveling System, the pre-expansion patch delivers tailored rewards with the all-new Loot 2.0, a revamped Difficulty system for bigger and better challenges, and significant skill updates to all five hero classes. Plus, for the first time ever, Diablo III players can come together with Clans and Communities, making this the ideal time to get your old adventuring group back together and dive into some serious loot hunting.
In the meantime, slay well!
*Bonus XP ends March 24, 2014. The +50% Boost applies to the PC and Mac only.
