Many of you may recall that there are several tributes to Kevin Kanai Griffith in Diablo III to celebrate his passion and all of the work he put into the game when he was alive. One of the tributes is particularly rare and should be of great interest to collectors.
Kanai’s Skorn is a special white item weapon that only spawns in the last week of the month of March and when you find it, it grants you a weapon transmogrification. Previously, this item was only available on the PTR, as noted in Bluddshed’s video below:
However, nothing on the PTR transfers over to live and the patch that added Kanai’s Skorn did not go live until April, so this year will be the first time you can get it on your live account. Read on for the official word on this from Community Manager Nevalistis:
So, since this event was available for only a short period of time on PTR, there are definitely some subtleties to it that may not have been captured by the community during that window. Let’s clear things up. 🙂
Chief Elder Kanai will rise during the month of March and invite you to join him on a quick run through his Stomping Grounds. During the final week of March (March 24-31), completion of this event has a guaranteed chance to spawn a chest containing the Kanai’s Skorn transmog.
Why the final week of March? Kevin Kanai Griffith, the artist to whom this event is dedicated to, celebrated his birthday in the last week of the month. If you’d like to know more about Kevin and the story behind Kanai’s Cube, I’d recommend checking out the blog and video we released last year.
