Diablo III adds its five-year sword as a transmog reward

How long do you have to work at your current job before you get a sword? If you worked for Blizzard Entertainment, the answer would be that you get a sword after five years, which is either too much time before you get a sword or not nearly long enough. If you want the sword but don’t work for Blizzard, however, you’re out of luck… unless you play Diablo III and you take the time to hunt down the transmog Easter egg that was added with the game’s most recent patch.

So how do you get these swords? They’re very rare, and thus the only way to unlock these items is to defeat those who already have them. That’s going to take a bit of scouring the hidden corners of Sanctuary. Isn’t it worth it for a sword with such special connotations, though?

Note: By defeating those who already have them, we mean defeating things in-game. Please do not go to the Blizzard Entertainment offices and try to defeat someone who actually owns one of the five-year swords. By definition, they have a sword, which is a substantial advantage in a fight.

That wasn’t very edgy at all. Just an anthropological truth.

Dobablo Ah, that makes sense. It does look like they have fun with it though.

I blogged a long answer https://dobablo.wordpress.com/2016/05/04/blizzard-we-have-a-problem-but-we-dont-care/
The tl:dr is that Blizzard have some very cool employee rewards but keep publicising themselves in a hyper-macho fashion. Since they give the impression that their company is a testosterone driven bro-fest is it any wonder they struggle to recruit a balanced workforce and find themselves constantly stumbling from one offensive faux-pas to the next.
