Special Dungeon, Butcher Pet - The Rewards
You will find mysterious cultists in the adventure mode after the start of the event. You can read their clues to learn how to find a portal in Tristram's past.
If you enter this portal, Diablo 3 changes its look to RetroVision. A filter is used that visually leads you back to the beginnings of Diablo. Within the dungeon, which will be opened to you after entering the portal, you will meet known opponents and iconic objects again.
In the end, the Lord of Terror is waiting for you.
The rewards: Playing the event provides you with more than just nostalgic feelings. Transmogs, achievements, portraits, companions and more are waiting for you.
