When you visited the Immortal Throne in the Ruins of Sescheron in the past, a message saying “The time is not right.” would appear. Apparently, the time is right now!
During the month of March, the torches will light up on the path there and Chief Elder Kanai’s spirit will rise from his throne to open a portal. This portal will lead to Kanai’s Stomping Grounds, a version of the cow level, just without the cow queen or the abundance of chests. Inside, Kanai’s spirit will help you slay the bovine beasts in typical Barbarian fashion.
The cow level can be found by going to the Immortal Throne found in Act III Ruins of Sescheron. While this dungeon is randomly generated the throne room can always be found in the west-northwest map of the sanctum.
It’s worth checking out the event quickly, especially if you haven’t seen the cow level yet because according to Blizzard community manager Nevalistis, the portal to Kanai’s Stomping Grounds will be gone by the end of March.

The Kanai event has actually been present since Patch 2.4.0 launched, but is only available during March – the real world birth month of Kevin Kanai Griffith, the artist for whom Kanai’s Cube (and King Kanai) is named.
For those of you who may not know, Kevin was a talented and dedicated member of the Diablo III development team who passed away in October of 2014 from a rare form of cancer. If you’d like to read more about Kevin, we included a short biography of his contributions to Diablo (and Blizzard as a whole) in the Kanai’s Cube preview.
This event is a chance for folks to get to adventure with Kanai one more time. We hope you enjoy the opportunity as much as we do.
