Today, we're also excited to announce that players who take the fight for Sanctuary to their big screen TV on the PS3™ or PS4™ will enjoy exclusive content based on two popular PlayStation® games!*

The Last of Us™ Nephalem Rift:

Get ready to endure and survive! We've teamed up with Naughty Dog to create a unique Nephalem Rift for the Ultimate Evil Edition inspired by the award-winning PlayStation® 3 title, The Last of Us™. Featuring hand-picked environments from the Diablo III universe and an ominous yellow spore effect, this randomized dungeon level (available only on PS3™ or PS4™) is sure to awaken the survivor in us all.
Oh! And did we mention the monsters? The Last of Us™ Nephalem Rift is teeming with a series of ravenous creatures modeled after the infamous Stalker, Clicker, and Bloater infected. 

Shadow of the Colossus™ Transmog Set:

Raise thy sword by the Light! In addition to The Last of Us™ Nephalem Rift, the Ultimate Evil Edition will also include a PlayStation® exclusive that pays homage to a gaming classic.

Players who choose to join the crusade against death on the PS3™ or PS4™ will be rewarded with the "Guise of the Colossi," a unique set of transmogrification plans that unlocks six armor appearances inspired by the influential PlayStation®2 title, Shadow of the Colossus™. These striking appearances will be available to each of Sanctuary's larger-than-life classes.

The fate of humanity rests in your hands, heroes. Diablo® III: Reaper of Souls™ - Ultimate Evil Edition™ will be out before summer's end, so make sure to place your preorders with your local retailer today!
*Please note that this exclusive content cannot be transferred to other platforms and will require you to connect to the PlayStation® Network to redeem.

 Kadala's Improved Set Item Ratios

Some players have been asking if the new ratios for class Set items are also applied to the Gambling Vendor, Kadala. Grimiku stated that the new ratios apply to Kadala as well.

This change does affect Kadala, and every other available source that you can find a class-specific Set item from (monsters, chests, and destructibles included). For those of you who are interested in checking out the 2.0.6 patch notes on item changes you can follow this link. 

Who's feeling ready to go kill some demons in Sanctuary?

Bracer Crafting Costs

Quite a few players have been taken by by surprise with the increased Arcane Dust cost to craft Bracers (up to 120), and were wondering if it was a bug or intended. Omrakos made a post clarifying that is actually an intended change.

Popesickle,
Yes, the higher amount of Arcane Dust is intentional. It's not a bug.

And what are the reasons behind the insane cost of them ? I can understand Reapers but the others ? No reason to be soo expensive !
Sakuria,
It's a design decision I'm afraid. You'd want to post in the General Discussion forum to voice any questions, comments, suggestions, or feature requests. The game's developers are much more likely to see them there.
