Holiday +100% Experience Bonus in Diablo III

Happy Holidays with an exp bonus through Monday, December 29 (Updated)

Christmas 2014 Diablo III Experience Buff
The holiday season is upon us, and a little extra celebration in Diablo III comes courtesy of an experience bonus. Heroes across the Diablo III platforms will receive +100% bonus experience, starting on Christmas in California through the end of Monday, December 29. Enjoy the extra experience to level up faster, or gain extra Paragon Levels!

Get ready to deck the hells with a few extra experience points.

That's right! All nephalem who log into Diablo III this weekend on any platform* will receive a +100% bonus to experience gain. As with previous buffs, the bonus provided will stack multiplicatively with other existing bonuses, including those provided by items, shrines, Pools of Reflection, and Paragon points.

Doesn't matter if you've been naughty or nice! This festive in-game boost begins for console and PC players alike in the Americas region on Thursday, December 25 at 12:00 a.m. PST and ends on Monday, December 29 at 11:59 p.m. PST.**  

Whether you're in Sanctuary, Azeroth, Mar Sara, the Nexus, or your local Hearthstone tavern, we hope that you and yours share in the warmth of the season. Happy holidays, heroes, and have a very merry new year!

*Please note that this buff will only be available on console for Ultimate Evil Edition. 

**For PC, the buff will start and end at the noted times in each gameplay region according to its local time zone (PST for the Americas, CST for Europe, and KST for Asia). For console, the buff will start and end in all regions at the same time, listed above. For time zone assistance, click here.

Update Monday, December 29: - The holiday experience bonus turned off a day early on the Diablo III servers. It has since been reactivated until midnight tonight, Pacific time:
I wanted to quickly jump in and thank everyone for the reports of the holidays buff ending before intended. This was indeed our mistake and we've re-enabled the buff for PC in the Americas region (the Asian and European gameplay regions were unaffected). It will conclude tonight at 11:59 p.m. PST for both PC and console players.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused, as well for the delay, and thank you all once again for your patience and reports. Happy holidays!
