This may count as spoiler territory for those of you who want to experience Diablo 3 without any prior knowledge of the twists and turns of the catacombs within. We'll give you a second to abandon ship, if you fall into that category.

Seriously, it's spoiler time.

Okay, so it's not exactly the Secret Cow levels of Diablo games past, but it's pretty darn close: Players who manage to find the right rare drops off the right rare mobs can open up a portal to Whimsyshire, a colorful, unicorn-filled realm of wonder and mystery. And rainbows. And Happy Clouds.

The area appears to be a reference to some initial backlash over Diablo 3's art style, which is a great deal more colorful than the dark and drab hallways of the series' previous installments.

If you can't resist Whimsyshire's siren call — it's got achievements and rare loot! — then you can follow the instructions of this Blizzard forum post to find out how to get there. For now, check out the video below.
