Season Journey Interface

Your journey through Sanctuary is unique, nephalem. In order to better celebrate your accomplishments, as well as guide newcomers through Sanctuary and help players compare their progress from one Season to the next, we’ve added the Season Journey. This helpful tool is easily found on the main menu screen in Patch 2.3.0 when a Seasonal hero is selected, and helps you track and plan your Season progress easily. Upon opening the interface, you’ll find the game’s challenges categorized into Chapters and Tiers separated by degrees of difficulty.

Chapters include challenges designed to be within reach of most players, and should you finish all of them in Season 4, you’ll be awarded a brand new cosmetic pet and portrait. Meanwhile, Tiers represent a true test of your mettle, and grant you exclusive portrait frames upon completion, perfect for showcasing your Seasonal accomplishments.

New Legendary Items

Season 4 also brings exciting new Season-exclusive Legendary items for you to enjoy. These include the Legendary Gem, Bane of the Stricken, along with class-specific items like Dishonored Legacy and Sacred Harness. We won’t spoil the surprise of finding them all, but we’ve included a few of these below, including the purr-fectly crafted new Witch Doctor mojo Henri's Perquisition.

New Conquests and Achievements

Conquests have returned in Season 4, and include a mix of challenges both updated and new. Among these are On A Good Day / I Can’t Stop and Boss Mode / Worlds Apart, both of which now reflect the brand-new Torment X difficulty. We’ve also upped the ante on Divinity / Lionhearted, which are achieved when you reach solo Greater Rift 60. Finally, for the true theorycrafters among you, we’ve added the intriguing new challenge The Thrill / Superhuman, which requires you to reach Greater Rift 40 without benefiting from Class Set item bonuses. As with Conquests in past Seasons, you’ll be able to see how well you completed these epic feats compared with other players on the Leaderboards.

If you’ve somehow managed to chew through these and find yourself hungry for even more challenges, we’ve also added several Achievements requiring you to complete certain objectives when facing bosses. Can you kill The Savage Behemoth and The Undying One within 5 seconds of each other in the Realm of Turmoil? Now, you’ll be able to prove it!

New Cosmetic Rewards

For those who missed out on the Conqueror’s transmogrification set from past Seasons, you’ll have a shot at obtaining a few pieces once more. The head and shoulder parts from this set will be available in Season 4 to those who reach level 70 with at least one Seasonal hero.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When does Season 4 start? A: Season 4 begins August 28 at 5 p.m. PDT in North America, 5 p.m. CEST in Europe, and 5 p.m. KST in Asia. Q: How long will Season 4 last? A:  While we don’t have a specific timeframe to share for Season 4, we anticipate that it will be at least three months long. Q: When are the Leaderboards being wiped for Season 3? A: Leaderboards will be cleared once the Season comes to a close. Though the leaderboards are eventually cleared, they will be preserved both in-game and here on our website if you wish to review your Season 3 accomplishments. Q: When are the non-Seasonal Leaderboards being wiped? A: Non-Seasonal Leaderboards are tied to what we call “Eras.” We currently anticipate the next wipe to coincide with the transition to Season 4, although this may not be the case for future Seasons. Q: Will Seasons be coming to console? A: Some features on console are best designed for that platform, and the same is true for the PC version of the game. A large part of the fun of Seasons is the entire community rerolling heroes together at the same time. Because the offline and disconnected nature of console does not support this style of play, we do not currently have plans to implement Seasons on console.

Are You Ready?

There’s so much to look forward to in Season 4, and we can’t wait to see what you’ll achieve. With brand new Set items and Kanai’s Cube to shake up the game, this may be our best Season yet! Have you already picked the build you’ll be using in Season 4, or are you planning to see what you can achieve using an old favorite? How far will you go in your Season Journey, and how much power will you wield by the time the Season ends? Share your plans below—and best of luck in the new Season!

Legion je novi World of Warcraft Nastavak

Zvanično, novi nastavak za World of Warcraft je World of Warcraft - Legion! Zvanični sajt je online. A beta treba da počne krajem ove godine!








Original Post by Blizzard


Recap
The team managed to cover a lot of new information in a short period of time! We have recapped almost all of it below:

Main Features
  • New Hero Class - Demon Hunter!
  • New Continent - The Broken Isles
  • Artifact Weapons
  • Class Order Halls
  • Adventure to Level 110
  • New Dungeons and Raids
  • New Honor System
  • Level 100 Character Boost
  • New World Bosses
  • Improved transmogrification system, allowing you to collect item appearances and save your favorite outfits without sacrificing precious bag space
  • Improved support for in-game communities: Create social circles with friends that have shared interests, and form the perfect group to play your way.

Story
  • The Legion CGI cinematic is coming soon.
  • The Broken Isles is a land at the heart of Azeroth that is long forgotten. 10,000 years ago, before the Great Sundering, the whole area was a vast Night Elf civilization. What remains after the world was destroyed is the bones of that civilization. The entire continent is a graveyard of sorts.
  • The Broken Isles has the Tomb of Sargeras, a gateway to endless Legion worlds.
  • A demonic invasion bigger than the War of the Ancients is currently underway. It is the biggest demonic invasion of Azeroth ever.
  • We are going to track down the source of this invasion at the Broken Shore and take the fight directly to Gul'dan and his demonic armies. After a glorious battle at the Tomb of Sargeras our story will begin. This will all take place before the expansion officially launches.
  • The Broken Shore experience is like the Assault on the Dark Portal for Warlords, but structured completely differently to help tell the story better. Every single person that has played WoW is going to be surprised and shocked.
  • After the Broken Shore, we wake up to a world on fire and need to save the world.
  • We will wield Artifact weapons such as Ashbringer and Doomhammer to attempt to restore peace to a world on the brink of annihilation.
  • To help restore peace, we are going to form Class Orders, or renew old ones, such as the Silver Hand.
  • We are going to need all of the help we can get to fight the Burning Legion, so Demon Hunters are key.
  • The last time we faced Demon Hunters, most of them wanted to kill us.
  • We will see the story of the Illidari through Illidan's eyes. We will go back to the moment during the siege of the Black Temple where we see Illidan send the Illidari back on a special mission.
  • We see the prison world of Mar'duun. This is the world Sargeras created when he was a good Titan to hold all of the demons that he captured. When he went bad, this is the world he shattered to release the Burning Legion.
  • We also go through the secret halls of the Vault of the Wardens.
  • We search the Broken Isles for the Pillars of Creation. These are Titan relics that were used to shape the world when it was young. Using them we can close the gateway in the Tomb of Sargeras.
  • Alleria and Turalyon will finally make an appearance.


Heroes and Villians
  • Maiev Shadowsong - If the Watchers are infamous among the night elves, Maiev Shadowsong is a legend. Famed for her uncanny ability to capture any enemy, Maiev tracked Illidan Stormrage, the Betrayer, all the way to the Black Temple in Outland. After his demise, she imprisoned his surviving followers, the Illidari, vowing never to allow the fel-touched demon hunters to roam free ever again.
  • Xavius - Xavius once terrorized Azeroth with an affliction that almost obliterated the walls between reality and dream. His machinations ended in defeat, but he has been given another chance at vengeance. Now, Xavius leads the conquest of Val'sharah, where the tainted World Tree Shaladrassil spreads the Emerald Nightmare's corruption. With an army of vile satyrs at his command, Xavius will stop at nothing to vanquish all who oppose the Burning Legion.
  • Anduin Wrynn - Heir to the throne of Stormwind, Anduin is wise beyond his years. Time and again, he has used diplomacy to end conflict, inspiring even his warrior father to lay down arms in pursuit of peace. But diplomacy has its limits, and some villains can't be reasoned with. As the Burning Legion threatens to annihilate Azeroth, Anduin will learn the true cost of peace… and whether he's willing to pay it.
  • Tidemistress Athissa - Queen Azshara, former leader of the ancient night elves, rules the naga with supreme authority. Her servants are many, but few can match the fanatical devotion of Athissa. At her queen's command, she is poised to lead a massive naga army into Azsuna, a region rumored to hold a long-lost titan relic of power. Nothing will stand between Athissa and this prize—not the cursed night elf spirits who haunt the land nor the Horde and Alliance forces that are gathering on the Broken Isles.
  • Genn Greymane - In recent years, the grizzled ruler of Gilneas has suffered many hardships: his son and his nation fell to the Banshee Queen Sylvanas and her Forsaken, and he nearly lost his humanity to the worgen curse. Yet from these tragedies, Genn has found new strength and courage. He is determined to fight tooth and claw against any enemy that threatens the safety of the Alliance.
  • Dargrul the Underking - For centuries, the tauren and the drogbar tribes of Highmountain lived in peace. But soon after the Legion's arrival, a drogbar leader named Dargrul the Underking destroyed their unity and stole the Hammer of Khaz'goroth, a powerful artifact protected by the Highmountain tauren. Using the terrible power of the Hammer, the Underking intends to take control of Highmountain.
  • Khadgar - Though he was unable to stop Gul'dan from opening the Tomb of Sargeras, allowing the Legion to flood into Azeroth once more, Khadgar is determined to find the means to reseal the portal and foil the Legion's invasion. He knows that the combined forces of the greatest champions of Azeroth are necessary to succeed, even as dissenting voices speak against a coalition and risk ultimate destruction by the demons.
  • Gul'dan - Gul'dan owes allegiance to no one save his Burning Legion masters. On Draenor, the power-hungry orc warlock nearly had his entire race enslaved to demons. Though his plans failed, Gul'dan survived. Under the Legion’s command, he was banished to Azeroth to open a gateway for a monstrous invasion force unlike anything the Horde and the Alliance have ever faced.
  • Sylvanas Windrunner - The Forsaken's ruthless leader is a formidable champion of her people. But with the Burning Legion's invasion, the stakes for the Dark Lady have never been higher. Should Sylvanas perish, her demise will be the beginning of her eternal damnation. All that stand between her and this doom are her Val'kyr, yet few of these spirit guardians remain. As her fate edges closer to the abyss, Sylvanas must decide how far she'll go to protect her people… and whether they're more precious to her than her soul.
  • Illidan Stormrage - After the fall of the Black Temple, the corpse of the lord of Outland, Illidan Stormrage, disappeared. No one knows the true fate of Illidan's remains, but legend holds that Warden Maiev Shadowsong took his broken body to the Vault of the Wardens so that Illidan's dark, lingering soul could suffer the rest of his eternal sentence—along with his followers, the feared Illidari. Justice to be forever served…
 


Zones
  • Dalaran and the Kirin Tor will be joining us in the Broken Isles, becoming the main hub for this expansion.
  • Val'Sharah was once the pinnacle of druidism on Azeorth, but it is now a forgotten druid refuge on the Broken Isles. This is the place place Malfurion became the first Druid under Cenarius. Here we face Xavius, the Nightmare Lord and his massive Satyr army. They are trying to unleash the Emerald Nightmare into our world. We will meet up with Ysera to help fight back the Nightmare. We will also enter Black Rook Hold.
  • We are going into the Emerald Nightmare, where will get glimpses into the Emerald Dream.

We will also be fighting the Vrykul God King and his minions, who are now minions of the Burning Legion.
  • Azsuna represents the bones of the ancient Night Elf civilization. It has ghosts of ancient Night Elves, a dying breed of the Blue Dragonflight, and the Nightfallen. The Nightfallen are exiled royalty from Suramar that have been left to die outside of the walls of their city. We will be racing Queen Azshara and her minions for control of the Pillar of Creation in the zone.
  • Highmountain is the home of the Highmountain Tauren, who are the keepers of the Relic of Kazgoroth. Only the biggest and strongest creatures can survive here. We will visit the lair of the Earth-Warder to get some answers. Neltharion is dead, but there are other things there. Nessingwary will also appear here.
  • Suramar has a new race of elves made from an old race of elves. They have lived here for 10,000 years and have flourished thanks to the use of their magical ability. They have become pawns of the Burning Legion and have the last relic we need. We have to kill them all, as well as their guard and Gul'dan to secure the last relic.
 


Artifacts
  • The Legion represents the greatest threat to our world that we have ever faced, so we weapons with greater power than we have ever had before to stand a chance.
  • There are 36 Artifacts, one for each class and specialization.
  • After the Broken Shore, you will seek out the Artifact for your spec.

  • Frost Death Knights will seek out Frostmourne's shards in Icecrown Citadel and reforge them into a pair of runeblades.
  • You will earn Artifact Power as you accomplish things. Completing quest lines, dungeons, outdoor objectives, battlegrounds, and most major activities. The power is spent to unlock traits that empower your weapon and character, as well as visual customization.
  • Ashbringer - Echo of the Highlord - When you use Templar's Verdict or Divine Storm, Ashrbringer will mimic that action after 2 sec.
  • Each Artifact has a trait tree that is a grid overlaid on the weapon's shape. You choose how you navigate the tree.
  • You spend Artifact Power to unlock traits. Once a trait is unlocked, the adjacent nodes unlock. At the far end of the trees are the major impactful abilities.
  • Death Knight - Icebringer and Soulreaper - Arise and Serve - Raise Ally now restores all health and mana. Upon death, the Death Knight now has an option to raise himself.
  • Some traits are simple damage increases, some transform your rotation, and some are new utility such as Death Knights being able to resurrect themselves.
  • Each weapon has different looks that you can unlock, with different color variants for each look. These are unlocked by leveling your weapon, achievements, raiding, and PvP.

    • Doomhammer is the weapon for Enhancement Shamans. There are Fel, Fire, Crystal, and other variants.
    • Fangs of the First Nightsaber is for Feral and Guardian druids. They can customize the look of their form rather than customizing a weapon. Spectral, Armored, and other variants will be available. The base cat form is also getting an updated model.
 


Class Orders
  • The Alliance and Horde are at each others throats, so classes will have to band together to fight the Burning Legion.
  • You lead the Class Order, as you are wielding an Artifact weapon.
  • There will be a heavy focus on class identity in Legion. Every class should feel different.
  • Order Halls are a base of operations for your class and you share them with other players of your class.
  • Only members of your class can enter the Order Halls, similar to the Death Knight starting area.
  • Order Halls will be located in thematically appropriate areas for each class.
  • After finding your Artifact, you will establish your Order Hall.
    • Shamans are in a hollowed out cave overlooking the Maelstrom at a point where all of the elements come together.

    • This time around you aren't raising an army by recruiting just anyone, but a small elite group.
    • Some of your champions will be established characters, such as Lady Liadrin.
    • These champions will more customization and more integration with the world.
    • Your champions won't do things instead of you, but instead help you to accomplish things.
    • They may go on a scouting mission and discover an area for you to investigate.
    • You may send them to a zone, which gives you bonuses when you are completing objectives there.
    • You will work alongside them and with them rather than sending them out on missions to compete with you on earning rewards.

Dungeons and Raids
  • Dungeons are essential to the MMO experience.
  • The team wants to make sure that there are more dungeons, more varied challenges, and more replayability, and more of a reason to keep doing dungeons throughout the expansion.
  • Halls of Valor
    • Located high up in the clouds above Stormheim
    • Level up dungeon
    • The art and feel of the dungeon is heavily inspired by Valhalla.
    • This is where the greatest warriors of the Vrykul are called to serve. It is their eternal reward for being the best.
    • As you are seeking out the Pillar of Creation in Stormheim, you are contending with the Legion cooperating leader of the Vrykul, the God King. As you race against him through the zone, both of your paths lead you to this dungeon, which is the location of the Pillar. You must prove yourself worthy in battle so that you can claim it.
    • We also learn more about the origin of the Val'kyr here. These aren't the Undead Val'kyr from Northrend, but the pure warrior of the Light.
  • Black Rook Hold
    • Max level dungeon located in Val'Sharah, the ancestral home of Lord Kur'talos Ravencrest.
    • This elven structure was a bulwark against the Legion, until a shadow fell upon it, carved out of the mountain to be an unassailable fortress.
    • You start in the catacombs below Black Rook Hold and work your way through the outside to the top of the spire.
  • Vault of the Wardens
    • This is where Demon Hunters awaken.
    • It was the Warden maximum security facility to hold all of the greatest threats to the world, including Demon Hunters and other terrifying monsters.
    • This is where Gul'dan found Illidan, so this is where you begin the hunt for Gul'dan and Illidan.
  • Eye of Azshara is located in Azsuna. This is where you contend with the minions of Queen Azshara and the Naga.
  • Darkheart Thicket is located in Val'Sharah at the base of the World Tree. It is the heart of the Nightmare corruption that is spreading throughout the zone. You fight your way into a chamber at the base of the tree to rescue Malfurion from the corruption of the Nightmare.
  • Neltharion's Lair is located in Highmountain. This is the cavern where Neltharion lived before he became Deathwing. This has become the center of society for the rocky warriors of Highmountain. We need to venture into their capital to recover the Pillar of Creation wielded by their chieftain.
  • Helheim
    • This dungeon is somewhat located in Stormheim.
    • It is the polar opposite of the Halls of Valor.
    • The cursed spirits get on the ship Nifflevar, which leads them to Helheim, where they are cursed for all eternity as Kvaldir.
    • This is the Ghost Ship of the Damned, with most of the dungeon taking place on the ship, sailing through stormy seas in an immersive environment unlike anything we have seen in a dungeon ever before.
  • Suramar City is the City of Night, where the Nightborne rule from their palace. The city contains catacombs beneath it and noble houses throughout the city, both of which you will venture into to discover ties to the Legion and the ultimate plan that is unfolding.
  • Violet Hold had some deep secrets that we didn't discover the first time around, but these are now awakened by proximity to the Tomb of Sargeras. We learn more about the origins of Dalaran, mages of Dalaran, and the origins of the world itself.
  • The raid structure in Warlords of Draenor worked out well, so the same type of structure is used in Legion.
  • The Emerald Nightmare is a raid with 7 bosses
    • Players have always wanted to see the Emerald Dream.
    • It was created by the Titans as a blueprint for Azeroth itself, a perfect version of our world.
    • Something went wrong and the world has descended into corruption and Nightmare. That threatens to spread into our world and engulf it.
    • In the dungeon we enter the roots of the tree, but in the raid we climb into the tree and cross through the barrier that separates our reality from the reality of the Dream. We will go in, root out corruption, seek out Cenarius, and confront Xavius himself at the heart of the Nightmare.
  • Suramar Palace is a raid with 10 bosses.
    • This is the palace in Suramar from which the Grand Magistrix runs the city. He has brokered a deal with the Legion to allow them to use and corrupt the Pillar of Creation to create the Nightwell, a conduit of dark energy.
    • The layout and structure is somewhat reminiscent of Black Temple. You start in an underground catacomb, as you aren't able to enter the front gate. You work your way up to outdoor balconies, royal quarters, and then to the Nightwell itself, where you find the Grand Magistrix and Gul'dan.
    • Gul'dan is here as an ambassador the Legion. He can't run away this time!
    • This is not another green spike filled Orc raid, but a royal elven city.

Demon Hunter
  • There are many different horn styles to choose from, along with the option to have no horns.
  • Demon Hunters can also have tattoos, which will be shown off with the Demon Hunter class specific armor.
  • There are different skin variations. Some are scaly and demonic and some are more normal.
  • There are different types of eyewear as well. The Illidan style, a veil, or other blindfolds are available.
  • Demon Hunters are a Hero Class, meaning they have a unique starting experience, similar to what Death Knights got. They will also start at a very high level, allowing you to immediately flow into the Legion content.
  • The Demon Hunter is awoken in the Vault of the Wardens. The Wardens are desperate for their help when the Legion invades.
  • Before you do that, you will get to take part in the events that take place ten years back in time at the Black Temple. You, as a member of the Illidari, are sent off by Illidan on a crucial mission to the world of Mar'duun.
  • Demon Hunters only have two specs, as a healer didn't make sense and another DPS spec would water down the identity of the class.
  • Havok is the DPS spec and Vengeance is the Tank spec.
  • Abilities
    • Fel Rush - Multiple charges. Rush forward, dealing 7,215 Fire damage to all enemies in your path. Generates 40 Fury if you inflict damage to at least one target.
    • Chaos Strike - 40 Fury, Melee Range, Instant. A brutal attack that strikes all enemies in front of you for 8,741 Chaos damage.
    • Chaos Nova - 30 Fury, Instant, 1 min cooldown. Unleash an eruption of fel energy, stunning all nearby enemies for 5 sec and dealing 5,772 Chaos damage.
    • Eye Beam - 25 Fury, 40 yd range, Channeled, 12 sec cooldown. Blast the target and any enemies near the target for 21,650 Fire damage over 3.71 sec.
    • Spectral Sight - Instant, 2 min cooldown. Allows you to see enemies through physical barriers, as well as those stealthed and invisible.
    • Vengeful Retreat - Instant, 24 sec cooldown. Vault back and avoid the next attack or spell directed at you.
  • Double Jump allows you to get over obstacles that other classes cannot!
  • Demon Hunters transform into hellish forms, enhancing their chosen role: damage-focused Illidari can teleport into combat, while those who prize defense can grant powerful supportive Auras
  • Demon Hunters can double jump, vault in and out of combat, and even unfold their monstrous wings to perform gliding descents and surprise enemies from above.
  • Demon Hunters wear Leather and can use Daggers, Fist Weapons, One-Handed Axes, One-Handed Maces, and One-Handed Swords.
  • Only Night Elves and Blood Elves can be a Demon Hunter.
 

Honor System
  • The original honor system was fine in theory. Unfortunately, many players couldn't keep up and some would account share just to keep up.
  • The current honor system that uses currency is better. You earn currency and buy gear. It allowed for the creation of set bonuses to help tune PvP a little bit.
  • Gear being a huge factor in PvP doesn't feel good, so it is time to dial that back.
  • The new system is similar to a PvP talent system. As you gain honor, you progress through ranks from 1 to 50. Each rank gives you perks and bonuses, as well as unlocking PvP talents. The PvP talents allow the team to balance PvP more independently of PvE. These abilities will only work in battlegrounds and arenas. You unlock down a column and then start on the next one, so that you quickly unlock at least one option for each row, then further ranks give you more options to choose from. Everything is unlocked at rank 50.
  • Abolish Magic - 9,600 Mana, Instant, 20 sec cooldown. Dispels all magic every 2 sec for 6 sec. Replaces Dispel Magic.
  • Adaptation - When you are afflicted by a Stun, Root, or Silence effect, you become immune to that effect for 3 sec. This may only occur once every 90 sec.
  • Blood and Soil - Bloodlust now has a 45 sec cooldown, but only affects you and your friendly target when cast.
  • Initiation - Increases your critical strike chance by 30% against targets who are above 80% health.
  • Mind Quickness - Spell haste increased by 15%
  • Necrotic Strike - 1 Death, Melee Range, Instant. A vicious strike that deals 100% weapon damage and absorbs the next 5000 healing received by the target. Lasts 10 sec. Replaces Scourge Strike.
  • Prestige Ranks - You can reset your honor rank and level it up again for Prestige Ranks that grant cosmetic rewards. This gives players that do a lot of PvP extra rewards that don't increase their power.
  • You can earn a badge for your unit frame's portrait that shows your Prestige rank, special mounts, and PvP only Artifact variants.

This should help with the difficulty experienced by smaller raid groups losing their DPS when sending players down into the death phase. The health of adds scales back up and should be remain roughly unchanged from before as raid group size increases.

That isn't changing.

As to Bashiok leaving, I know many will try to interject meaning into it, but sometimes, change is just change and nothing more.

You probably won't respond but are blues even privy to the info of the next expansion?
We are indeed. We just can't talk about it yet. All things in their time, my friend. All things in their time. I liken it to knowing what a friend has gotten another friend as a gift. Until the friend with the gift is ready to share the gift with the other friend, it's not my place to spill the beans. Otherwise, you ruin the joy of the gift giver. It's a simple analogy, but it holds up just the same. The developers work very hard to put together the content and systems that go into the game. It's my job to make sure that I share what they want me to share when they are ready for me to share it. No sooner than then.

Personally I can't believe anything any developer says about the next expansion. I can only wait to see what it will actually end up becoming after it's released.
That's OK to feel that way – perfectly valid and we'll be watching to see what you think.

Just one request, Neth, with regard to "relay feedback." Can you guys get a checklist or something to ensure that what gets relayed as feedback is accurate?
Feedback comes from multiple directions: what people say on the forums, what they say on fansites or in the media, what they say in game, and importantly what they DO in game. It all gets watched and reported on via multiple channels, we watch, customer service watches, the developers watch, etc. There are multiple reports that go out as well. One of which we ourselves do every week from every region (from the community management end). Plus, there are constant discussions via email and in person. So, no one "checklist" would ever convey the plethora of information and feedback that flows like a giant tidal pool –there are undercurrents of undercurrents that occur. We do what we can though to keep on top of it all. Keep in mind too, sometimes the answer is, "we agree" and sometimes it's "we disagree" due to design goals and whether agreeing fits or doesn't fit into that. In the end, we are also passionate and human about what it is we do.

Please inform Zahrym that I like the way the patch notes are presented in a somewhat verbose manner.
This is actually Rygarius that puts these together and has for awhile now. I'll let him and the developers (who have a hand in them) know you like them. (Official Forums)

I began working at Blizzard way back in October of 2003, and every day of my experience here has been shared with you, the players, and content creators, artists, bloggers, AddOn authors, podcasters, streamers, forum trolls, and— man, anyone remember the old Off-Topic forum back in the day? That place was just absolutely cuckoo bananas.

Anyway, Blizzard—and the community that surrounds it—has defined almost my entire adult life, and I am just so absolutely grateful to all of my friends here for having such an incredible and positive impact on who I am, and who I am yet to become. I don’t think I’ve had to make any decisions as difficult as the one to leave Blizzard, but a new opportunity has come my way, and I’ve decided to take it.

While I think it’s all still sinking in, the other day I realized I actually get to be surprised by Blizzard announcements and releases again. Which, as a lifelong fan and rabid gamer it makes me giddy thinking about being able to sit in the audience at BlizzCon, watching a stream, or reading the newest blog posts, and seeing whatever’s in store next—for the first time.

I’m looking forward to what’s next, and wishing you a life of joy, insatiable curiosity, and happy gaming.

Definitely thankful,
Bashiok

Overwatch Na Gamescomu - Lúcio Donosi Muziku u Život

PlayOverwatch tim dolazi nam na Gamescom 5 Avgusta i biće tamo do 9, a dok su tamo izgleda da će nam pokazati nešto preko svog livestreama.

Overwatch Na Gamescomu - Lúcio Donosi Muziku u Život  

Lúcio is touring to promote his debut album, Synaesthesia Auditiva. He has labored over this work for two years, and from what we've heard so far, it shows. Last week, he teased fans across the globe by releasing two scintillating tracks from Synaesthesia. These previews have already skyrocketed to the top of the charts, surpassing his breakout single from last year, "Sonhos Ômnicos."

If you haven't listened to them yet, have no fear: we've linked both songs below.

Synaesthesia's positive early reception has delighted Lúcio, but he's even more interested in what people will think of his tour. "I've spent two years working on new technology for the show. It'll bring the music to life. You're going to do more than just listen to it," Lúcio said. "You're going to feel it. See it."

The Synaesthesia world tour begins next Wednesday in Cologne, Germany. The opening show has already sold out, but Lúcio has said that a holostream service will be offered to simulate the experience for viewers at home. 

Synaesthesia Auditiva Track List

  1. Bem-vindos à Society 2.0 (Viemos para ficar)
  2. HELIOTROPICS
  3. Hard Light, Hard Time
  4. Rejuvenescência
  5. Sonhos Ômnicos (Extended Mix) 
  6. Maximum Tempo
  7. The Millennium Anxiety
  8. Quebrando a Barreira do Som (Drop the Beat)
  9. Robot After All
  10. We Move Together As One 
  11. Synaesthesia Auditiva
