Diablo 3 Quest Honors Fallen Blizzard Artist


Prepare for incoming feels guys. When patch 2.3.0 was released on August 25, 2015 it introduced the Ruins of Sescheron and the powerful artifact hidden within, Kanai’s Cube. What nobody knew at the time was that this was all leading up to an epic tribute. 

Blizzard artist, Kevin Kanai Griffith lost his battle with a rare form of cancer back in October of 2014. Now the secret of the Chief Elder's throne room has been revealed over at Battle Net. Every March, players who visit the throne room to pay their respects to Elder Chief Kanai, based on the Transmog the real Kevin wore on his character, will be able to accompany him a new mission. 

It's a bittersweet way to remember a lost friend and giving the community a chance to fight alongside him one month every year is a great way to see that Kevin's legacy lives on. I think we'd all like to know that some part of us will go on after we are gone. Being able to have that part integrated into your life's work in this way is almost too perfect. 

TL:DR Fuck Cancer, Blizzard is good people.
