Diablo 3’s Double Treasure Goblin event has begun!

In preparation for season 12 of Diablo 3, the game is holding a Double Goblin event between November 6 at 5:00 p.m. PDT and November 9 at 5:00 p.m. PDT. During this event, every Treasure Goblin you find will be accompanied by a friend.

We want to help you stretch your muscles and get prepared for the latest patch with a special in-game event—double Treasure Goblin spawns! Each time you encounter a single Treasure Goblin, they’ll be hanging out with a buddy whose bags are overflowing with all your favorite treats and treasures.

This Double Goblin event will begin in the Americas region on November 6 at 5:00 p.m. PDT, and ends on Thursday, November 9 at 5:00 p.m. PDT.

Note: This buff does not affect the number of goblins encountered via a Bandit Shrine, Goblin “Rift” packs, or in the Realm of Greed.

We hope you’re excited for all the balance changes crammed into Patch 2.6.1, and we look forward to hearing about your upcoming Season 12 adventures. In the meantime, good luck, have fun, and we’ll see you in Sanctuary!

A starting date of November 6 is great timing for Diablo fans traveling home from BlizzCon, but it’s also somewhat bizarre. November 6 through November 9 places the entirety of the event on weekdays, ending before the weekend when players might have more time to participate. The Double Goblin event also ends immediately before season 12 begins — meaning seasonal players can’t take advantage of the bonuses at all. Double Treasure Goblins is still fun, but the event seems timed specifically to minimize its usefulness.
