With just a couple of weeks in Season of the Construct, the Lunar Awakening Event is set to bring some smaller rewards to Diablo 4. To make sure you take full advantage of the bonuses, I’ll cover when the event starts in Season 3.
Lunar Awakening Start Time in Diablo 4
The Lunar Awakening event starts on February 6, 2023, at 1 pm EST or 10 am PST. Tuesday is one of the typical update days for Diablo 4, and this Season 3 event is no different. All the new bonuses will be live as soon as the clock strikes 1 pm ET, and players will have two weeks to participate in the limited-time festivities. On February 20, the event will end at the same time.
Lunar Awakening isn’t a massive content drop, but it does offer some decent incentives for your Season of the Construct characters. More shrines will appear all over Sanctuary and have some different characteristics than standard shrines. Each one provides a multiplicative 50% buff to XP and a 30% movement speed increase. They can also have randomized effects that assist in earning more Ancestor’s Favor.
Along with the shrines, any Nightmare Sigils you earn during the event will have a chance for the Ancestor’s Favor Affix. This modifier guarantees that only Lunar Shrines will spawn in the dungeon, and you get a 10% Glyph XP boost. If you can’t get around to using all your Sigils, they still carry over after the event ends.
Some new cosmetic rewards can be earned while you take advantage of all these buffs in Diablo 4. However, they won’t be available once the Lunar Awakening ends on February 20.
