Diablo III: Reaper of Souls for the PS4 and Xbox One received a new content update today. Originally released for the PC and Mac versions back in August, Patch 2.1.0 adds a number of new items, bosses, and special areas. One of these new areas should answer the age-old question of just where does the Treasure Goblin run off to.
Treasure Goblins are the piñatas of the Diablo series. They carry a lot of money and numerous rare items on them and will only relinquish said wealth if they are defeated in time. Otherwise, they escape through a portal. We don’t know just where that portal actually goes. Until now. With the new patch installed, defeating a Treasure Goblin will sometimes open a portal that leads to a new special area known as The Vault. Here, adventurers will find even more money, items, and gems than any one measly Treasure goblin can carry. This realm is guarded by the Baroness of Greed, which is new to the patch.
Another new area included with the patch is the Greater Rifts. Like the Nephalem Rift, it can only be accessed through Adventure Mode. Unlike it though, Greater Rifts have an unlimited number of levels. Each level is timed and gets progressively harder the further they go down. This is the only place to find Legendary Gems, also new to the patch. Legendary Gems add unique abilities once socketed into rings and amulets. They can even be improved upon by progressing through a Greater Rift as well.
The complete patch notes can be seen here. PS3 and Xbox 360 owners of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls are out of luck, however. Blizzard has only confirmed patch support for the PS4 and Xbox One versions.
