Greetings Everyone,

This is the last patch of the year and we have many joyous things.

We have given one Legendary champions form each faction a holiday makeover. These festive combatants will be available in the Holiday Reskins pack. For those who want to spend some gold there is also a Holiday Extended Set Special pack that guarantees a Legendary and Exotic runes.

For those who love a good Single Player challenge a Winter Holiday campaign is also available for free for a limited time. Romp around as the abominable rhyming Krampus as it revels in the displeasure of others in joyous glee.

The Holiday Packs and Campaign will only be available until January 4th, 2016.
