Wings of Terror and Diablo 20th Anniversary Event

Wings of Terror - Rare Cosmetic Item - Diablo 3

If you were hoping to get the Wings of Terror for your character in Diablo 3, then unfortunately, I have some bad news. The Wings of Terror was a cosmetic item, one which gave you a pair of demonic wings to wear. The item was an event exclusive and only available during Diablo’s 20th-anniversary event.

The Diablo 20th anniversary event, also known as the “Darkening of Tristram,” was available for a limited time. The event lasted from January 2017 to January 2018. However, sadly, in the year 2023, there is no way to access the Wings of Terror because the events are simply not available in the game any longer.

The event while it lasted was quite spectacular. It included a variety of nostalgic features such as retro graphics, old-school sound effects for monsters and attacks, and even a special dungeon. Sadly, the event is no longer possible. Although there is a chance Blizzard will reintroduce the event sometime in the future.


If the event ever recurs in the future, you can unlock the Wings of Terror by defeating the Dark Lord of Terror on at least Torment I difficulty or higher.

Although the Wings of Terror were only available during the 20th-anniversary event, there is always the possibility that they might return in the future. To keep an eye out for any upcoming events or promotions regarding Diablo 3 stick with GameVoyagers.
