Blizzard is holding a Diablo-themed contest, with some real-life loot at stake. The Legendary Scavenger Hunt will send you searching for items across the Internet and even some in real life, each of which will reward you with entries in a random drawing for various Diablo prizes.
The announcement promises that clues will be doled out regularly through the Diablo Twitter page. Deciphering those clues will lead you to an online or real-life destination, where you’ll find an item or QR code. Clicking or scanning those will lead you to your Collections page, which will compile all the treasures you’ve found. Each item will give you entries into the prize drawing, with rarer items like Legendaries being worth more entries.
Prizes include the Diablo 3 Eternal Collection Nintendo Switch Bundle, digital copies of Diablo 3 for Switch, and other goodies. Some of the prizes will even be real-life prop versions of the items featured in the scavenger hunt, created by Volpin Props. Full contest rules are available here.
The hunt has already begun with a handful of clues being distributed via Twitter. You can dive into the replies where some users are helpfully solving them for less perceptive treasure-hunters, or abstain and try to solve the riddles yourself.
Here’s your third clue for the scavenger hunt! 🤔 Think you can figure it out?

Blizzard appeared to have something up its sleeve at BlizzCon regarding the Diablo series, given the conspicuous presence of a panel on the main stage. It also recently updated its storefront with gear bearing the title “Diablo Reign of Terror,” but Blizzard denied that was any kind of leak. Most recently the studio tempered expectations for a big Diablo announcement at all, saying that it will present some Diablo-related news, but not the big announcements fans might be expecting. The show begins on November 2, so we’ll know just what it has in store then.
