    Lastly, it's obvious things were not tested properly before this patch was made live in respect to xmogs or cosmetics. It's unfortunate it took so long for Aidan's Revenge to come out as being unobtainable. It's also unfortunate some players' immediate reaction to situations is to start criticizing the moral integrity of others.



    Eh, I think you're saying that because Neva discovered that Aidan's Revenge isn't in the current patch? I don't know that I would fault them for that. They technically never said that it was in the game to begin with. It was datamined along with all of the other cosmetics and people assumed that meant it was in the game. Truthfully, all of these items have been in the game for quite some time. I do think that people are WILDLY overthinking this Graw the Herald thing. All these BS flavor texts and stuff probably mean nothing.


    No, I'm saying that because in the last 48 hours we found 3 additional transmogs that are obtainable in Campaign Mode. It has nothing to do with Aidan's Revenge. That has to do with it being excluded from the loot table despite its files being on the server.

    Still on the Graw the Herald train? Even after neva self-corrected by saying that it's a "fallen themed" pennant rather than a "fallen" pennant?


    You are drinking your own Kulle-Aid.




    This is why you have problems understanding the simplicity of it all: You've become too infatuated with finding fault in everything, insofar as to make assumptions on semantics and display gross negligence in comprehension, that you start glossing over the most basic things. You, and others, are way too quick to jump on the backs of everyone and call "Liar! Liar!" because it's easier to do that than use your brain in a logical way.

    She did not "self-correct," she basically verified that the word "Fallen" was never intended to encompass the possibilities of stars, angels or cities. "Fallen" means nothing more than the demon class. Also, she said this in response to someone on Twitter, not on the D3 forums. She probably simply glances over the D3 thread very quickly, or maybe not at all. After her "hint," the majority of players (myself included) started to look at the word "fallen" as a possible meaning for something else completely unrepresentative of the demon class of Fallen.

    And what is the "Graw the Herald train"? I simply made the comment that if Regreb spawns in Campaign Mode then it would be reasonable to assume Graw also might. I have stated numerous times that I am more interested in the Act 3 missing transmogs than Graw, Besides, it's not a definite that Graw even drops the pennant.

    You were asking me for direction on the D3 forums but were also very quick to jump on the bandwagon idea that I had been misleading people on purpose, or "trolling." Why? The latter would be the most simple answer for neither Graw nor the pennant being verifiable: "GodHand has been purposely misleading people." All of that based on a person you do not even know, who does not even participate on the forums, making a cauldron of lies about me that I debunked with proof in this very thread, to save face in the fact she had been spending time following a Twitter picture that ended up being Covetous Shen's barrel.


    Furthermore, I understand the frustration people have, but you should also know that to my knowledge, it has not been legitimately located on the PS4 version of 2.4.1, either.

    "Neva has stated twice to my knowledge (maybe more) that cosmetics are Adventure Mode only."

    Which has been proven to be totally inaccurate in fact wrong.

    She acknowledged the bug with Ghoul Kings Blade, but evidently they are unaware of the other tmogs that are supposedly being found on campaign as well, Now King Maker too!

    Really shoots their credibility down a few more notches, if in fact these items are being found on campaign.









    We know it's wrong, but that does not pertain at all to his question. Adventure Mode-only spawns occurring in Campaign Mode can be something as little as a line of code. He was asking if it was a possibly INTENDED issue in order for us to do both Adventure and Campaign to attain all the cosmetics. Since she said Ghoul King's Blade was a bug, it would follow that the others are also bugs, especially when she said they are Adventure Mode only items.

    Remember, Neva is just a Community Manager. The cosmetics are intended to only spawn in Adventure Mode but obviously there is a problem somewhere on their end.

    Also, I will not be 100% convinced of King Maker until there's a video. Regreb is a pretty rare spawn and him spawning in Campaign Mode would definitely be troubling because then people will reasonably assume that Graw the Herald also spawns much more frequently in Campaign Mode (even though they do not know where to actually find him when he DOES spawn).






    I'm not throwing her under the bus, ok. She has been given incorrect information by members of the dev team and has broadcast this inaccurate info as she is supposed to do, they threw her under the bus. Now accepting the fact that items are supposed to be adventure mode only and obviously are not restricted to it by coding errors, the issue is; what else is broken in the spawn of the un-found items in adventure mode.



    She simply relayed the info that was given to her by their "Quality Assurance Team." I have no idea what that is but it's possible the pennant would drop server-side (the side they'd be testing drops from), but be unable to, or "locked" if you will, client-side. I do agree that there are obvious problems now with more and more "Adventure-mode only items" showing up in Campaign Mode.

    At this point, there is no guarantee at all that Nevalistis is not talking out of her ass. Someone dropped the ball. We don't know who it is, we don't know how far the ball has been thrown. What we do know is that this is not the first time this has happened. Anyone who has been around since at least the RoS release surely remembers the Final 5 and that damn blood hawk.
    Personally, I'm not gonna stay around for 6 months waiting for nothing until they decide to fix whatever problem is forcing those items to be extremely rare and/or unobtainable.




    I honestly cannot believe I'm defending Blizzard here but no reasonable person is going to think that Neva is purposely lying to people or "talking out of her ass." She can't do anything other than relay back to the community the information she receives from those who do the testing. Some people are so quick to start attacking the moral integrity of another just because it's the easiest thing to do.

    Lastly, it's obvious things were not tested properly before this patch was made live in respect to xmogs or cosmetics. It's unfortunate it took so long for Aidan's Revenge to come out as being unobtainable.

    I'm starting to wonder if part of the issue with the pennant isn't that it has to be found on hardcore mode. The season journey required making a hardcore toon and I imagine a significant amount of the cosmetic searching is being done on softcore; since Blizz likes to force you to play their game modes du jour I almost could see them making one of these more 'rare cosmetics' buried in hardcore in the same way they hid a couple in Whimseydale and Whimseyshire hence the clue 'only the most dedicated' will find them.


    So creating games over and over and looking in The Den of the Fallen or Adria's Hut isn't good enough if it's not a hardcore game....


    Have they specifically stated that these would be available across all game modes or could this be part of the 'challenge' to solving this mystery?


    But Neva said we were "on the right track, just not quite there yet." Creating a HC toon and doing a bunch of "stuff" with it is not anywhere near being "on the right track."


    Regarding your last question: Neva has stated twice to my knowledge (maybe more) that cosmetics are Adventure Mode only.

    We now have 2 additional transmogs that have been verified to drop in Campaign Mode: Sangjae's Fury and God Butcher. It seems as if the ability for these to spawn in Campaign Mode lowers their spawn rates in Adventure Mode. I'm wondering if our missing transmogs are also Campaign Mode dwellers?

    IMPORTANT THEORY ABOUT GRAW THE HERALD!

    I think Graw the Herald spawns in Archives of Zolton Kulle. Either in "The Unknown Depths" or in "The Shadow Halls", where there is a chance that the mobs will be Fallen mobs. I even killed Timok The Vengeful(an yellow elite) in The Shadow Halls, which I can't find any information about through google or the d3 wiki, so maybe it's a new mob added this patch which sometimes is replaced by Graw the Herald?

    The fallen pennant looks to have Aiden's skull on it(with the hole in the head) and Aiden has relevance to the soulstone which appears in the Archives of Zolton Kulle. Could my theory be right?

    Currently I'm farming those two zones in the archives, whenever the mobtype isn't fallen I try the next zone or create a new game. Help farming these zones would be appreciated because I think this could be it.

    http://diablo.wikia.com/wiki/Thugeesh_the_Enraged
    That mob also spawns in the archives, even though it's during a bounty, but it's of type fallen too and spawns rarely.

    Some datamined information even showed that Graw the Herald is in Act2, so this could be the right zone? All the description of the pennant speaking about harvesting and the winter, dead leaves, could just be jibberish related to the mobtype, not hints for where to look.


    The problem here is that the mobs that spawn in both those areas have a specific string name associated with them, and that is FallenShaman_A_Zoltlev. Graw the Herald is labeled simply as FallenShaman_A_, which generic. This definitely does not mean he doesn't/can't spawn there. I still clear them if one (or both) have Fallen Shaman in them. I do not bother with The Shadow Halls.

    We had figured it was Aidan's head on the pennant, but closer inspection of the pennant itself shows the skull to appear more bird-/animal-like, especially when its texture is rotated in 3-D. The front of the skull from the flat texture image does look like Aidan, but simply may coincidentally look like his skull because it's a flat texture and thus, fatter in width. Others have said the hole in the center of the skull's head correlates where a pike may protrude from where it's mounted, or I surmised it could have been made by impact from a hand-made hunting device like a spear to kill whatever creature it belonged to. The interpretation of the hand-made spear and wild animal being killed bears strong resemblances to Greyhollow Island. Also, the "horns" more-so resemble antlers if looked at in 3-D while the flat textured image makes them look like demonic horns.

    Was thinking exactly this but needed to know if the area is p4 since its either p4 or act2



    The cow level is a p2 location, specially "p2_TotallyNotACowLevel Not the Cow Level."


    Best not get too hung up on the p4, as if this barrel is in the game, it's possible it uses that string and A1 barrel texture but can spawn potentially anywhere (like a Resplendent Chest). It's possible the Resplendent Barrel never made it into the game, though, or that it will contain just good loot and not the pennant or missing xmog. I would say it does contain a goodie if it is, in fact, in the game simply because it has been this elusive considering it's a barrel that would likely stand out like a sore thumb.


    Quote from oldschool_2o4f»

    I've been in there maybe 4-5 times this season and haven't seen anything different.


    Was in Path of the Drowned(?) once last week and saw some kind of mini Malthiel pop up in the lower left of the map? Is that normal, I'm not in there much and usually don't sweep the entire zone, so my knowledge is sketch at best...



    Interesting tidbit: Google "Corvus" and take a look what comes up for what the word actually represents. Mace of the Crows, anyone? After all, there are 4-5 fake Passages to Corvus all accessible in Path of the Drowned and all having a different insignia at the entrances.

    Quote from PsykStrike»

    I'm fairly certain GodHand (may have been another poster) already mentioned sweeping Not The Cow Level a bunch of times in the main thread on official forum and turning up no unexpected findings.



    I didn't see any mention of a "mini malthael" within this wiki article.

    http://www.diablowiki.net/Paths_of_the_Drowned


    If you could get the spawn again and provide some more details, it may help to clear things up.



    I've been there a few times but never considered it a location. I know a lot of people are thinking since Whimsydale requires a portal, Whimsywhire requires (kind of) a portal, then perhaps the 3rd portal in the game may contain the pennant. I am not convinced by this because there is absolutely nothing in the cow portal that would correlate to the hint of "Fallen pennant." I have yet to find a Fallen Bovine down there.

    Quote from oldschool_2o4f»

    It wasn't a targetable mob with damage, it resembled a reaper, I think there was some text said something about malthiel, not sure, and it seemingly spawned on its own, was there maybe 3 or 4 seconds and was gone. I am now wishing I had paid more attention. maybe I was supposed to interact with it, not sure. I don't remember any dialogue.

    Has no one seen this in Path of the Drowned? I'm going to have to go back and see if I can repeat it.



    You can't intereact with it. I believed it's labeled as "Shadow of Malthael." It spawns in Westmarch Commons/Westmarch Heights, too. I'm pretty sure it's just meant to be kind of a "boo" moment where you're taunted a bit.

    @ GodHand:


    Props to you mate. Either you are an extremely active and helpful member of the community, or you are the biggest troll on the internet (to an extent where it is worthy of an award). The main thread you started extends for (currently) 33 pages and includes a vast array of theories which tie in with Diablo lore, which I think most players would be hard-pressed to come up with through any means. The comments regarding the "curse drama" really only support your active involvement in the cosmetics hunt, which urges the question; why would a legit troll endure long and exhausting hours of theory-crafting and in-game farming (with essentially no reward) purely to support troll comments on the internet?


    Thanks for the support! Indeed I would DEMAND an award for trolling if this much effort was put into it! That said, the last thing I am going to do is purposly lead people in a completely wrong direction. If anything, 90% of her post does that, hence the reason it's constantly edited. Her "I theorize" posts in that linked Reddit thread are all my conclusions via Curse discussions. She never had any theories. She was able to pull data strings from files and that's pretty much it (and many were old - the Harvest string for the pennant can be found on THIS SITE from many months ago when the patch was first datamined). Just watch how her "I theorize" remarks start to dwindle now that she has no one to give them to her. You'll get no direction, no reliable theories or any viable info from her end - just old data strings and a long-winded lie

    Again, I try to theory-craft a bit, and datamine what I think is reasonable information. I do not just post any string I find without looking into it further (even if it's just a Google search to see if the string is old and known already).

    Fact is, I try to help out with this, not harm. No one puts such effort into leading others in a wrong direction unless it's for personal gain. What would I have to gain from that? The missing cosmetics would still remain missing, and likely for much longer. Good luck on the search, and I'll report back when I've finished a few things currently being worked on.

    I think it's that the pennant can only drop after certain prerequisites are met within a game. Everyone is making a game, farming specific areas, restarting and repeating. This would explain why it has not been found yet. Her use of "Fallen" may direct us to certain "Fallen" enemies that need to be killed before the chance for the pennant to be attained is even active.



    This is not going to be anything that has to do with the time of the year. If it was, she would not have told us it's live and can drop in the game.

    Had an "out of the box thought" on the pennant.


    It's referred to as "harvest", act one has a farmer or two and scarecrow like pennants in Field of Misery that are clickable and occasionally drop stuff.


    Could one of these be the location to obtain this? I'm away from game at work but the thought popped in my head I was like Hmm....


    The whole scarecrow idea has interested me since I noticed the pennant you get for Season 6 is basically a scarecrow. If you have it, rotate it in your F1 (Collection) and you will see it resembles a scarecrow. Add that with the Samhain title and flavored text of "Harvest," they do all link, but the pennant itself is simply given to you and not a location piece.

    However, these clickables you're referring to are not related in any way to the datamined info and FoM is not a p4 location. The Resplendent Barrel will be a barrel, most likely similar to the barrel_unique texture we got from datamining - white in color so it stands out.

    Have you ever thought of the fact that Mace of the Crows might not be in Act 1? For example, take this sentence of the datamine : x1_Bog_Chest_Cosmetic_01: Mysterious Chest -> Blood Marsh (Crossbow of Corvus)

    Do you see it? it says 01 but Blood Marsh is in Act 5. Other than that, I checked the diablowiki and it doesnt say that there is any sort of fallen in Act 1.

    People might have to extend their search.


    As stated, the _01, _02, etc. parameters do NOT necessarily represent a level or act. It's a way of differentiation for the game itself. Granted, it has helped many times because it does seem many strings' numerical parameters correlate with locations they're found. Also realize, though, the string says "Bog" in it. We have a "Bog Slog" achievement that are done only in the Blood Marsh and Paths of the Drowned. Most likely it was the "Bog" that directed people to A5's Blood Marsh area. Just like ZombieSkinny_B_Unique_313: Ravi Lilywhite would make a player look in areas mostly Zombie mobs spawn (Weeping Hollow being one of them).

    Quote from darko75»

    DrEmpiricism : Following the discussion on D3 forums ,thinking out of the box seems a not a bad idea. It might refer to the fileds in A1 with the farmer and his dead wife, isn't it ?

    But, as it is a bounty-driven place, many people goes there and noone has reported it yet. Also, like for the 2H axe of Kanai, perhaps the pennant will only be obtainable during Autumn season (like Kanai only available on March) which might drive people crazy until then.



    There is too much place left for thinking and building hypothesis.


    Thinking out of the box is a great tactic but also being somewhat logical as well should be practiced. Moreover, Neva said the drop of the pennant was tested and even verified and it DOES drop. I'm 99.9% sure the pennant is not a season-only cosmetic. After all, Kanai's Skorn is a memorial piece, the pennant is not. Also, if you venture along Old Tristram Road, you will notice the crops are foll of pumpkins and the like. Same with Fields of Misery. More than likely A1 itself is an "autumn" act. Lots of leaves on the grounds in various areas, the growing of pumpkins, the somewhat gloomy lighting.

    Also, I have done a ton of different things with Forelorn Farm. It spawns those barrels that are identical to the Resplendent Barrel, is a crop that has obviously been harvested already, and the creepy fellow who brings you to his cellar has some comments about crops, cold weather (and I think maybe harvesting, too). The issue is the Resplendent Barrel has a p4 parameter (updated/patch related). FoM is not a p4 area.

    Quote from Azlatar»

    Wanna check with you guys if abandoned mineworks A2 is under p4, been seeing similar barrels there. Also wanted to point out that the pennant reminds me of the two totems near the entrance from southern highlands to northern highlands, not sure if that hints of the barrel spawning there even though barrels don't usually do there.


    Abandoned Mineworks is not a p4. It is labeled as an A2_

    First off, I am GodHand from the D3 forums, so expect the posts to be similar. I do not want anyone saying "You're just copying info!"


    A2 is damn horrendous to farm. I've found some locations where enemies with the same texture as Graw the Herald spawn, but certainly not many. The Oasis is more filled with 'B' or blue-colored Fallen Shaman.


    Here's one of the handful of champions/uniques I ran into that have the same texture Graw does: http://i.imgur.com/mahHzQ4.png


    So that's what he'll look like when you encounter him. If you want a better picture, Beyatt is basically Graw the Herald with a different name and spawns much, muck more frequently. Same texture and same type of shaman: http://www.diablowiki.net/Beyatt

    No, and he does not have the pennant. He posted on the Diablo 3 forums.


    *EDIT*


    Also, if you wanted to correlate "fallen" with "falling" and have it actually be representative, it would not be the Crumbling Tower event, but the Hideout of the Lost Legion in A5 (a p4 area where the Resplendent Chest would spawn). Inside you meet 3 Fallen super-uniques and they make tons of smaller Fallen enemies literally fall from the ceiling onto you.






    Could not remember this event... In the first part of the city and/or in the burning part ?


    It's in the Battlefields of Eternity. It's entrance is randomly placed around there and sometimes it does not spawn at all, but it is a fairly common spawn.

    Quote from garnok»

    Just to throw another idea into the hat...what if the "fallen" was as literal as it could be? What about Izual, the fallen angel? Wouldnt put it past blizzard



    Tyrael is also a fallen angel. There are a lot of "fallen" things in Diablo 3 (Diablo in general).



    Additional Info Below!


    I do not believe Graw the Herald has the pennant. I believe the pennant is in the Resplendent Chest due to the fact it's a "more rare cosmetic." King Maker is another "more rare cosmetic," and falls from Regarb the Slayer in Stinging Winds (after many restarts).


    Also, if you put Graw's file in a hex editor, it clearly says "Act 2" with his name. The _01 parameter, as said by another person, is not there to let you know what level or what act, which can be seen by the differences in what some of the strings say and where some of the transmogs are.


    We have also datamined Graw's flavor text which reads Graw the Herald - Fallen Harbinger. So "Fallen Harbinger" will show under his name when he's located.


    We have also found that the 'A' in his datamine string refers to his texture as a Fallen Shaman (they can be different colors). Graw will be red. The problem here is most dungeons in A2 rotate mob types. For example you will enter it one game, and it will be nothing but sewer creatures. You will enter it another game and it will be nothing but wasps and poison mobs. You will enter another game and it will be Fallen Shamen. That's not to say Graw won't spawn in an area that does not have the same type of mob-style around, but Regarb the Slayer, who is a Fallen Overseer, spawns with other Fallen Overseers, and those with the same color (he is also 'A' or red).


    We found 2 strings for the Fallen/Khazra Pennant itself, which is named "Harvest," and also the flavor text:
    - P5_cos_Pennant_Harvest_01: "The long cold winter begins, but your hard work during the harvest will keep you alive. Hopefully."

    - cos_pennant_harvest_01: "This pennant smells of dead leaves. You should unfurl it."


    The 2nd one is particularly telling since it talks about its odor and unfurling it. We figure this is what the pennant says when it's in your inventory and has yet to be added to your Collection, but also think it represents where the pennant has been kept - stashed in something (like a barrel) and exposed to the elements (so a barrel outdoors). p4 and p5 correlate to the same locations (Ruins of Sescheron, Eternal Woods, Greyhollow Island, Leoric's Manor (remember, this is a new section) and the aforementioned containing dungeons and abodes)).


    We were able to datamine a picture of the front of the pennant, that shows the skull is actually the skull of Aidan - The Dark Wanderer from A2; the one who slammed the shard of the soulstone into his forehead at the end of the original Diablo to contain Diablo.
