Can someone tell me what they were? I noticed they aren't spawning anywhere it seems and there is literally no information to be found on it.

There were a few changes made to the Cursed Bellows, which is a Cursed Chest event that can spawn in the Halls of Agony:

  • The Cursed Bellows will now spawn randomly rather than in a fixed location. In addition, it now only has a chance to spawn rather than being a guaranteed spawn.
  • Corrected the XP granted by enemies spawned by the Cursed Bellows to more appropriately match their HP.

You can check out more hotfixes here (we also include upcoming hotfixes if there are any): http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/11914141315

how did this happen? didn't the xp to hp scaling get fixed way back with the scorpion xp nerf?


Human error, probably. And it's a slightly different scenario. For this particular event, it was more that the HP/XP ratio of chest-spawned mobs didn't match the HP/XP ratio for the same mob type that spawn in the open world, which was balanced better. The hotfix helps corrects that issue.

Thx for a response. Usually better to not come-off as hoity toity "Human error?" when your managing a community but to each his/her own.


I think you're reading a little more into the statement than needed. I don't personally know how the issue happened exactly, but my assumption would be that it was a mistake or oversight. I went ahead made a slight edit to the post to hopefully better clarify. :)

Thank you for clarifying. So... does this mean that no cursed events were removed?


None were removed. One specific chest (the Cursed Bellows) simply no longer spawns 100% of the time in the same location. Instead, it now has a chance to spawn and where it spawns will be random.
