Diablo 3 anniversary event will make it easier for you to get legendaries

You might as well call me Old MacDonald because this weekend I'm going to be farming.

Blizzard is going to make it rain legendary items in Diablo III as a way of celebrating its second anniversary.

The event will begin on Thursday, May 15 at 12:00 PT and run for a whole week, ending on Thursday, May 22 at 05:00 PT, in which the latest community buff will be running on the PC and Mac servers. Legendary drop rates will be doubled during the event, and players will also receive twice as many Rift Fragments so it's even easier to hop into a Nephalem Rift. And, yes, the bonuses will stack.

Earlier this week, Blizzard announced that Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition will be making its way to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on August. It also launched the 2.0.5 patch for Diablo III, so this might be the perfect chance to jump back in and see what the latest balance tweaks have done to your favourite build.

Diablo III: Reaper of Souls was released for PC and Mac back in March. You can read what GameSpot's own Carolyn Petit made of the expansion in her review.
