Ruins of Sescheron

Some players, who may not follow Diablo news on a daily basis, still wonder where is part of the content shown at last year's Blizzcon - namely the Ruins of Sescheron. Grimiky clarified that it has not been shelved and will be released on a future patch. Read below.

Thank you for asking about some of the upcoming content on that we shared at BlizzCon 2014, RoGKILLGORE. We’re still planning on releasing the Ruins of Sescheron, but it’s currently slated for a future content patch. At the moment there isn’t any additional information we can share about when you all can expect to see it, but I wanted to confirm that it’s still on the way

4-Man Rank #1 PoV

Empyrian, from Zero Empathy clan, has recently uploaded a video with his Demon Hunter point of view on a 4-man Greater Rift 68 run. It was for some time the rank #1 clear worldwide, but was shortly after beat by a korean team, as mentioned in the video description. Still an interesting watch for those looking to learn a bit more about the end-game GR runs. Check it out!
