Double Treasure Goblins and Gold Bonus in Diablo III

A treasure event for the next week, and Greater Rift rankings are live

Diablo III Goblin and Gold Temporary Bonus
Diablo III Patch 2.1.0 is live around the world, and there is a new treasure-filled event bonus to celebrate! The event provides an extra +100% Gold Find, and those crafty Treasure Goblins will spawn in pairs throughout the event. The latest Blizzard Blues posts detail the bonus, along with the new Greater Rift list that shows off the heroes who have reached the top of the rankings.

Gold Find Bonus and Double Treasure Goblins
The community event this week is all about gold! Patch 2.1.0 brought the new Realm of Greed, Baroness of the Vault. The riches continue until next Tuesday, with +100% Gold Find and double Treasure Goblins wherever they can be found!

Patch 2.1.0 is now live in the Americas! 

To celebrate the arrival of this major content update, all players who log into Diablo III this week on Windows or Mac will not only receive a +100% bonus to Gold Find, but all Treasure Goblin spawns in the game have been doubled! (As with our previous buff, please note that the Gold Find bonus will stack multiplicatively with existing bonuses including those provided by items and Paragon points.)

This bonus Gold Find and double Treasure Goblin period begins in the Americas region today, August 26, and ends on Tuesday, September 2, at 11:59 p.m. PDT.

We hope you enjoy patch 2.1.0 and look forward to hearing your feedback. In the meantime, good luck, have fun, and we'll see you in Sanctuary!

*The buff is only available on Windows and Mac, but it will apply to all heroes—including those on accounts without Reaper of Souls enabled. 

Greater Rift Rankings and Game Guide Updates
Many of the new features in patch 2.1 are now detailed on the official Diablo III game guide. There are also lists of the Greater Rift rankings, the heroes who have achieved the best times in the hardest Greater Rifts so far.

Give and you shall recieve... The Rankings page is now active, and will be updated with the feats of brave nephalem warriors:

We've also updated the game guide with information on the following Patch 2.1.0 features:

We're always searching for ways to expand and improve the guide with answers to all of your questions. If there are any aspects of the game you're curious about, let us know in the comments!

*Seasons and Rankings are only available for Reaper of Souls for Windows and Mac. 

Empty Rifts
An occasional issue occurs when there aren't enough enemies to spawn the Rift Guardian, in a Nephalem Rift or Greater Rift. This is being investigated; if you run into the problem, you can leave details in the thread.

Not enough mobs to spawn RG.

Thanks, Dommer! We're definitely aware that some Greater Rifts are still unable to be completed because of a lower enemy density (or because they are filled with weak enemies, like Random mentioned). While these cases should be relatively few and far between, we're working on reducing and hopefully eliminating their occurrence.

One question I have for all of you: are you unable to complete regular Rifts, Greater Rifts, or both? (Knowing the answer to this will help us target our efforts better.)

Ramaladni's Gift Drops Everywhere
The Ramaladni's Gift is a special new enchant in patch 2.1, that can add a socket to a weapon item. Ramaladni's Gift does not drop very often, but it can drop throughout the game; it is not restricted to a specific area or game mode.
Ramaladni's Gift is quite rare, as it's sort of a bonus. A gift, if you will. ;)

It is not, however, limited to Greater Rifts. It can drop in any game mode.

Unsocketing Legendary Gems
The new Legendary Gems are restricted in some ways, obtained through Greater Rifts and only able to be placed in Ring and Amulet items. Unsocketing those gems is an easy process that does not change or reduce the power of the gem, as Grimiku clarifies.
Unsocketing a Legendary Gem should have no effect on the gem, and definitely shouldn't reset its level.

Can a legendary gem be upgraded after it's been placed into an item?

Yes! As long as the Legendary Gem is on your character, in your inventory, or in your stash, then you'll be able to upgrade the gem when you speak with Urshi.

Adventure Mode Unlocked in Seasons
The upcoming Season 1 starts this Friday! As seen when it was tested on the PTR, Adventure Mode can automatically be unlocked when a player starts a Seasonal character - if that has already been unlocked in the standard non-Seasonal side of the game.

I'm assuming Adventure mode will begin locked if you choose ladder, has this been confirmed though?

Good question! You're certainly not the only one who's been wondering about this, either.

To confirm, though, if you've previously unlocked Adventure Mode before starting a Season then it will be immediately available for you when you start playing in one. In other words, if you've already unlocked Adventure Mode then you won't have to do it again in Seasons. However, it'll only correspond with the game type you unlocked it in. So, for example, you'll need to have previously unlocked Adventure Mode in Hardcore in order for your Hardcore Seasonal hero to start with access to it.
