Diablo 4 fans are in for a treat right now as Blizzard is conducting a new Mother’s Blessing event for all players to participate in and reap benefits from before it expires. This Mother’s Blessing event gives Diablo 4 players bonus XP and Gold, but you must act quickly otherwise you will miss out.

When is the Diablo 4 Mother’s Blessing event?

The new Diablo 4 Mother’s Blessing event began on March 26th and offers the following rewards:

  • 35% bonus XP
  • 35% bonus Gold

Alas, the event isn’t permanent as it only lasts until April 3rd. Below is the official message from Blizzard:

Focus on clearing the Seasonal Journey with these boosts

Since the holiday event relies on the completion of the Seasonal Journey, try to breeze through it with the XP and gold buffs.

How to earn bonus XP during The Mother’s Blessing

To know if you’re earning bonus gold and experience, look for a special icon next to the potion count. Blizzard has created this opportunity for players to level up before the arrival of the Abbatoir of Zir. It’s a smart way to incentivize players during the festivities to sink some time into the game. And with the Midwinter Blight holiday event launching on December 12, it’s a good way to draw attention to the famed dungeon-crawler. This event is set in Kyovashad and promises new foes and challenges alongside bosses like the Red-Cloaked Horror.

Is it worth returning to Diablo 4 for The Mother’s Blessing

The Mother’s Blessing is a great time to return to Sanctuary. Unless you’re already level 100, it’s a good way to boost Season 2’s decent leveling rate. You can also use this opportunity to clear out pending tasks like the Diablo 4 Season Journey. And since the holiday event is tied to Zir, the villain of Season 2, it makes sense to keep your character in fighting shape for what’s next.

That covers The Mother’s Blessing. This bonus is pretty much the biggest that Diablo 4 fans have seen to date. With the first paid expansion Vessel of Hatred and Mephisto around the corner, it’s a good time for the developer to steer this ship with content updates and fixes.
