Legendary Workshop Featured at BlizzCon 2014

Submit your idea during BlizzCon for a new Diablo III Legendary power

BlizzCon 2014 Legendary Workshop
The upcoming BlizzCon 2014 will have two primary panels for Diablo III. Another side event has been announced, the BlizzCon Legendary Workshop. Diablo III developers will be joined by some BlizzCon attendees to develop a Legendary power for a new Legendary item. Players all around the world can contribute by submitting their ideas for the new Legendary power.

This developer interaction with the community is similar to the earlier Design a Legendary project, that culminated with the Legendary sword Shard of Hate. If you have a great idea for a new Legendary item, be sure to get it ready for submission during BlizzCon!

Have you ever wondered how Legendary powers are designed in Diablo III? Or dreamed of collaborating with our developers to create your own? Then our BlizzCon Legendary Workshop may be just the adventure for you.

What’s The Legendary Workshop?

During the "Evolving Reaper of Souls" panel at BlizzCon this year, developers Josh Mosqueira, Kevin Martens, and Travis Day will be analyzing how the team's loot design philosophies have changed over time and sharing a sneak peak of some upcoming items in development.

In addition to this retrospective, we will also be hosting a Legendary Workshop on the side. As part of this activity, we will be inviting a few lucky BlizzCon attendees to join developers Julian Love, John Yang, and Roger Hughston on stage to design a brand new Legendary power. Together, they will review ideas submitted in advance by you, our community, as well brainstorm new ideas on the spot!

Sounds Cool! How Can I Participate?

Submitting an idea for the Legendary Workshop is easy! Here's how the process will work:
