|What are they exactly? Very little information is given on them other than they will be randomly generated in rifts and not to be too "Greedy". Other than being a new environment area known as the sewers of westmarch is there anything else these things will offer other than a scenery change?|
Will there be new monsters in them or a special boss or special items from these areas? I'm really curious about this addition to the game.

|The Cesspools are an additional environment that will begin spawning exclusively in Nephalem Rifts (including Greater Rifts). They aren't a new zone, however, so there aren't new monsters or bosses associated specifically with them. That would also run somewhat counterintuitive to one of the qualities of Nephalem Rifts in that they are always randomized. It'd be a bit odd to introduce a new environment to Rifts and then have them produce static results.|
Adding the Cesspools in was an opportunity for us to toss in a sort of "bonus" for Patch 2.1, as well as feature the awesome artwork and animations that didn't make it into the launch version of Reaper of Souls that our environment team worked on.
That said, it does not mean that Blizz is not planning other things for rifts and Greater Rifts.
We shall certainly see! Let us know what you think of this new environment, and if you'd like to see more, once you get a chance to explore them on the PTR. We certainly want to sate your Greed for new content. ;)
