Ever wonder just how many bosses players have killed in Diablo II: Resurrected since launch? Well, Blizzard is providing this info in a series of player data cards giving a peek into just how bloodthirsty players have been, and other fun facts like the number of collective hours played across Diablo II: Resurrected and Diablo III.

The Diablo franchise has been entertaining, challenging, sometimes frustrating, and overall keeping players entertained for 25 years. For just Diablo II: Resurrected and Diablo III both on PC, a total of 7,395,027,817.5 hours of playtime, or about 844,181 years of slaying monsters and venturing into hell with skills and hope. Diablo II: Resurrected has seen over 2,167,586,684 games created. And the number of bosses everyone has slain during those games? 1,439,479,438. Trillion. How about player deaths? 437,297,636. Undoubtedly a mix of very close to a win, foolish, valiant, and overwhelmed.

If you’re looking to engage some more monsters and try to defy those death stats yourself, all while feeling nostalgic once more, The Darkening of Tristram is back. This anniversary dungeon is a nostalgia trip for some and an introduction to a Diablo adventure if you want it to be. Find the mysterious cultists who are the cause of the trouble in Sanctuary. Find them and hunt them down in Adventure Mode. Follow your journey, gather clues with the more cultists you slay, and venture into the portal into the past. Tristram’s past.

Take on the classic enemies in the depths of this dungeon in the cathedral. Adventure to find out more of just what awaits you in this area, including perhaps the Dark Lord himself if you’re daring enough. Of course, there’s going to be loot and you can grab pets, transmogrification events, achievements, and more. Complete all you can find for the greatest challenge and greatest reward.

The event runs through the end of the month, January 31st at 4 PM PT. for more on the anniversary event, see the announcement on Diablo III.
