Double XP Weekend Ahead For Diablo III Players

With the recent launch of Diablo III’s latest expansion, Rise of The Necromancer and the host of issues that accompanied the launch, Blizzard is hosting a double XP weekend for players to level up their undead manipulator. The weekend will start this Friday (July 14th, 2017), 5pm PT, and go through Monday, 10am PT.

Blizzard’s intention for the Double XP weekend is to be an apology for the delays that occurred during the Patch 2.6.0 hotfixes implementation, as well as a reward for players who were affected by the Legendary Gem exploit.

Thinking of picking up the expansion? Here are the details:

Rise of the Necromancer expansion enables players to choose the Necromancer class in both Campaign and Adventure modes. The expansion also adds a pet, a new pair of wings, a new pennant, two additional character slots and more.

  • Non-combat pet
  • A pair of cosmetic wings
  • New Necromancer-themed Banner Shape, Sigil, and Accent
  • Necromancer Portrait Frame
  • Pennant
  • Two additional character slots
  • Two additional stash tabs (PC only)
