If you played Diablo II back in the day, then you remember the Cow Level. Sure, Blizzard had a good time telling everyone that it didn’t exist, and still toys with the community to this day. However, despite what they say, the Cow Level exists, and there’s actually a new one that you can only access during the month of March.
A couple of years ago, a Blizzard employee by the name of Kevin Kanai Griffith passed away. He was an artist that worked on both Diablo and Warcraft series. You’ll find references to him in Diablo, both as Kink Kanai, and the Kanai Cube. Blizzard has always been great about paying in-game tribute to people who have worked on, and even just participated in their games, and have passed on.
One part of their tribute showed up yesterday. Since March is the birth month of the real Kanai, they decided to throw him a little party. And they invited all of your favorite bovines.
So how do you get your invite to this special party, of sorts? Well, once you know the motivation, it’s not that hard to figure out. You’ll need to head to Act III, and go to the Ruins of Sescheron. Once there, make your way to the Throne Room. This will be located in the west-northwest part of the map. Then, wait for Kanai’s soul to awaken and open a portal to Kanai’s Stomping Grounds. Check out the video of the process below.
Now here comes the bad news. This is a birthday celebration, and birthdays can’t last forever. The portal will only activate from now through the end of March. There is no word on whether or not this will be a yearly event, but here’s hoping that it will be.
