Location of Development Hell

Development Hell is a new way of showing the credits, it is a rarely spawned level that features a group of zombies with the names of the Diablo III game developers.

"Development Hell" is a reference to Development hell, an abnormally long period of development for computer games or other various forms of electronic media.

Location[edit | edit source]

Development Hell is found in the Cemetery of the Forsaken in Act I of Diablo III, as one of the Defiled Crypts. It will appear as a fourth accessible passage, as opposed to normal three, and will have the Development Hell name instead of Defiled Crypt.

The chance for it to appear is very low (roughly 1%).

Monsters[edit | edit source]

This crypt features a variety of zombies: Ravenous Dead, Retching Cadavers, Hungry Corpses. All monsters have the names and jobs of the game developing group. Two unique monsters are present in this dungeon: Jay Wilson and Josh Mosqueira.

Unique rewards include Transmogrification-only swords, Incinerator and Rancor.

Achievements[edit | edit source]

Killing Jay Wilson grants a hidden achievement; "Smash, Jay, Smash", placed in "Feat of Strength" group on the achievement page, plus a sigil of a horned demon.
