Road of Glory: Capturing Points
We will be iterating on the design of the Road of Glory in the coming builds. Currently, the control point at each “node” within the RoG will despawn the higher level guards (Vanguard/Knights on Alliance and Bloodguard/Wolf Riders on Horde), while killing players and lower level guards (Marines/Grunts/Archers) will determine whether you capture that node.

This design can be a little confusing as there are two win conditions to each node, so we’re going to experiment with having the control zone completely win you the node. You won’t have to finish the reinforcement quota.

Often times we see players push further than they should and the node is lagging behind. This design will have the benefit of allowing the flow of battle to follow that of the natural combat.

Road of Glory: Mage Towers
Also new in the Road of Glory will be “mini-bosses” in the Mage towers. We’re experimenting with these being bonus objectives (with rewards). You don’t necessarily have to kill the Mage in these towers, but ignoring them will be challenging.

The design goal for these guys is to add more texture/interest/gameplay to the RoG, but also to slow down how fast a faction can progress to the main base. It should be challenging for a faction to storm the enemy base.

Note that we will be performing hotfixes to tune the Mages after the beta goes live, they’ll probably be a bit overpowered when beta goes up (I may of made them way too OP).

Road of Glory: Storming the enemy base
Our vision for the final encounter with Volrath and Tremblade is not fully implemented, but this upcoming build will get it closer to where we want it. Upon killing the faction leader you will get a juicy reward (including Conquest). You will have some time to pillage the enemy base using keys found within Ashran to open chests, and afterword you will be put onto a Gryphon/Wyvern back to home base whereby the RoG will reset.

We also have plans on making the encounter with the faction leader more engaging. And we have not yet fully done a tuning pass on health/damage numbers.

Hidden buffs
We agree with the feedback that the buffs found in Ashran are a bit too strong. We’re going to be toning them down by duration, rarity and/or effect.

Faction Objectives
We have done some changes to the amount of Artifact Fragments each objective at the base requires. Summoning Kronus and Fangraal will require a bit more work, but we’ve reduced how many Artifact Fragments are required for the Mage Portals and Warlock Gateways.

Class Books
The Shaman book has been completely redone. We’ve added a new Druid book which is less rare than the now Legendary Flight Form book. We’ve also re-designed the Death Knight and Warlock books.

In addition, the class Books now only come from the “bosses” of Ashran found within the outskirts (Titarus, Brickhouse etc.) and within the Ring of Conquest. These encounters are designed for small groups of players from 3-5.

Zone Events
The events around the four major POIs will soon give a few minute warning before they begin. These events will reward conquest.

Other Future changes
  • We will be doing a pass on the spawning the zone on abilities, health and damage.
  • Kronus and Fangraal’s abilities will be polished. They are also intended to move with the lane back and forth. Currently this is not yet fully implemented.
  • The rewards from the quartermaster and honor/conquest vendors are not yet complete.
  • The Mage Portal and Warlock Gateway guardians will be tuned and give a reward.
  • Rescuing the prisoner NPC’s will give a reward.
  • Spawning in the zone will have proper loot tables. (Saberon drop things Saberon drop elsewhere in the game etc.)
 

Diablo III Season Preview

Blizzard je objavio novi blog, gde nam je predstavio najveći i najinteresantniji sadržaj koji nam dolazi uz Patch 2.0.1, a to su sezone.

One of the biggest additions to Diablo III in patch 2.1.0 is a competitive system we're calling Seasons. An entirely new gameplay mode, Seasons encourage you to roll a new hero and race against others to complete new challenges, acquire new and exclusive loot, and experience once more the feeling of starting fresh.

Seasons — How Do They Work?

 So, you've logged in and you're ready to create your very first Seasonal hero. Where do you begin? Just like any new character, your first Seasonal hero will start their journey in the hero creation menu. Select your hero class, gender, and name as usual, then select the "Seasons" checkbox on the lower left of the screen, and BAM! You'll have a brand new level one nephalem ready for Seasonal action!
 
You'll be able to create both Hardcore and Normal Seasonal heroes—just check the "Hardcore" box in addition to the Season box if it strikes your fancy.
Seasonal heroes are completely separate from your existing ones. This means they start from scratch, without access to your existing gold, blood shards, shared stash, Paragon levels, Artisan levels, crafting patterns, or items. Just as your Normal and Hardcore mode heroes have separately tracked progression, Seasons stand entirely on their own.

Seasonal Activities:

As fun as ladders are to climb, there's much more to Seasons than reaching max level or pressing onward into the upper echelons of the Paragon system. While the first goal you should set is leveling up to 70 and getting some gear in order, there are three distinct ways to compete with other players in Seasons: 1) completing Conquests, which are Season-exclusive Achievements; 2) acquiring as many Achievement points as possible; and3)  reaching the highest tiers in Greater Rifts. We'll be covering Greater Rifts in more detail with a future blog, so keep an eye on the main page for details! Leaderboards: You can track your progress against other players for the activities above on the Leaderboards and compete with others for the highest rankings. Want to be the first Hardcore player in the new Season to reach Level 70? Complete that Achievement and you'll be immortalized on the Conquest leaderboard. Aiming to tackle the most Achievements? Compare your total Achievement points earned to your peers on the Achievement Point leaderboard. Are Greater Rifts more your style? See how you measure up to other adventurers and check your fastest times on the Seasonal Greater Rift leaderboard.
 

Seasons offer a great variety in gameplay challenges, and you'll be able to compare your successes to your friends, other members of your class, your clan mates, or players in the same region. Leaderboards will be available both in-game and right here on our community site, so whether you're checking your progress on the web or in Sanctuary,  you'll always be just a few clicks away from seeing your Seasonal ranking!

Conquests:
Achievements are accomplishments that showcase your skill or dedication to a particular task. In Seasons, we've taken the concept of Achievements to the next level by introducing Conquests. Consisting of difficult tasks that can only be completed by a Seasonal hero, all Conquests come in two flavors: Hardcore and Normal. If you want to conquer every Conquest, be prepared to tackle them with both Hardcore and Normal Seasonal heroes!

So what makes a Conquest different from a regular Achievement? Conquests are generally more challenging to complete than a standard Achievement and, as a result, they come with a special perk. If you're one of the first 1,000 players to complete a Conquest, your name will be immortalized on the Conquest Leaderboard for the rest of the Season. These slots are first come, first served, so be prepared to hit the ground running if you want that place at the top of the charts! Conquests will also remain rewarding throughout the Season and, even if you don't place on a Leaderboard, you'll still earn points toward your Seasonal achievement point total by completing Conquests.

Want a head start on the competition? Take a look at some of the Conquests that you'll encounter, and start planning your strategy:

Seasonal Rewards:

Climbing Leaderboards might not be your thing, so you may find yourself asking "What's in it for me?" There are incentives for everyone to try their hand in Seasons, including getting first crack at brand new Legendaries and a shiny new Transmogrification set that is exclusive to Season participants.
With Season 1, we're introducing 10 new Legendaries. These items will initially only be available to Seasonal players until the end of the Season, at which point they'll be rolled into the regular loot pool for all game modes. In addition, even more handfuls of exclusive Legendaries will be introduced each Season, and will only be available to Season participants until that Season ends.

A few of Season 1's new Legendaries. We’ve also put together a badass new Transmogrification Set that is completely exclusive to Seasonal players. Each Season, you'll earn a new piece of this excellent armor. What do you need to do to get it? Just hit maximum level during the course of a Season, and your Transmogrification pattern will automagically unlock at the Mystic in all game modes.

A new helm awaits Season 1 challengers!

 Pretty sweet, right?

Wrapping Up the Season:

We're only just starting the very first Season, but it's important to know what happens to your progress at the end. When a Season concludes, your current Seasonal heroes will become non-Seasonal. This means that if you were playing a Seasonal Hardcore hero, they'll instead become a regular Hardcore hero.
Your heroes keep all their gear, crafting materials, gold, blood shards, Paragon experience, and any new recipes they may have earned during the course of a Season. This also includes any new Stash tabs purchased or Artisan levels earned (if higher than your non-Seasonal profile). Finally, if you’ve managed to earn achievements during a Season that you've never conquered before, you'll earn them in the corresponding non-Seasonal mode.
While you'll be starting from scratch when a new Season begins, your non-Seasonal heroes will reap the rewards with new items, experience and achievements!

Join the Race!

We're excited to jump into Seasons, and we hope you've enjoyed this overview of what's to come. Are you prepared to get started when Season 1 launches? Which classes will you focus on first? Will you tackle Conquests first or focus on Greater Rifts instead? We want to know how you plan to play in Seasons, so let us know in the comments! Prepare yourselves, nephalem! Challenge and reward awaits you!

Vanion imao je prilike da odradi intervju sa Tom Chiltonom na Gamescomu i podeli video njihovog razgovora gde možemo čuti interesantne detalje. Mi smo izvukli najbitnije informaicje medjutim preporučujemo da poslušate ceo video.

  • Grommash is the final boss of Warlords of Draenor.

Legendary Items
  • Warlords of Draenor will have a questline for a legendary ring that begins aat level 99 and is less grindy than the Mists of Pandaria quests.
  • The legendary ring will have a visual effect so that players can show it off.
  • It is very likely that there will be legendary items other than the ring from the questline.

Future Content Patches
  • A transmogrification system revamp could be part of Patch 6.1 or 6.2, allowing you to build a collection of transmog items rather than storing them in your bank or Void Storage. It also may include tools to better manage multiple transmog sets.
  • Tanaan Jungle and possibly Farahlon will be in future content patches, not at launch.
  • Additional dungeons could be added in content patches. There are more dungeons within Draenor that could be added, as well as older dungeons through the Timewalker system.
  • There aren't any class quests planned for Warlords launch right now, but if one fits later in the expansion it could be added.
  • The length of time beyond Patch 6.1 that you are unable to fly in Draenor will be decided upon by the community as a whole. If players enjoy it then it could last longer. If players overwhelming want flight back by Patch 6.1, then they will most likely get it.

Warlords Patch Timing
  • The Warlords patch cycle will be similar to the Mists of Pandaria patch cycle, but some of it will depend on the timing of the next expansion.
    • "Some of it will depend on the time before the next expansion after Warlords. It is very possible that if we are successful and there is a shorter gap, then we won't necessarily want to have multiple raid tier content patches. Each raid content patch needs about four months to breathe. Any less than that and it feels like you really rushed through the content."
  • The content patch schedule isn't finalized yet, as a lot of it depends on what players want to see more of once they get through the launch content. Some of it will depend on the scheduling for the next expansion.

PvP
  • The team would like to add the new Nagrand arena as a new arena, but this isn't final yet. It depends on how work on the next expansion is progressing.
  • There are no plans to add a new battleground in Warlords of Draenor.

Garrisons
  • Garrisons ended up involving all of the different teams and will be a big feature, changing the gameplay of WoW more than any other feature has.
  • More Garrison features or levels are something that could be done in a future content patch.

Misc
  • The Adventure Guide won't make it in for the Warlords launch. It will be useful as more content is added after launch, so hopefully it will be ready for a future content patch.
  • The World of Warcraft team grew by around 80 people during Mists of Pandaria, which should allow them to produce content faster in the future. This did slow things down in the short term though, which contributed to the delay of Warlords of Draenor.
  • There aren't any scenarios for you to queue for at Level 100 in Warlords right now, but some could be added in future patches. Right now they are mostly used as a storytelling tool while leveling.
  • Warforged items can appear in dungeons now as a nice bonus.

Spremite se za Borbu: Pre-Expension Iron Horde Invazija

Izgleda da ćemo uskoro videti Patch 6.0 na PTR serverima! Igrači će biti upućeni u Blasted Lands gde će morati da se odbrane od invazije Iron Horde, koja je prošla kroz Dark Portal. Obavezno proveti i UBRS Video istance koja nam dolazi redizajnirana u ovom patchu.

As part of this patch, players will encounter fierce new opponents and get their first chance to experience a number of updates we’re making to the game. In addition to changes to the skills and abilities for every class, this patch will introduce brand new features such as 20-player Mythic-difficulty Siege of Orgrimmar, as well as systems adjustments including stat squish and diminishing returns on crowd control. The next chapter in the World of Warcraft saga is coming at you armed to the teeth.

Treacherous Developments
The Dark Portal in the Blasted Lands has turned blood red. Hundreds of strange-looking orcs are violently pouring into Azeroth, killing everything that stands in their path. Nethergarde and Okril’lon have already fallen, and while the Horde and the Alliance moved as quickly as they could to get reinforcements to their people, they are too late. The Iron Horde invasion has begun.

In this desperate hour, King Wrynn and Warchief Vol’jin have called upon their greatest champions to join the front lines in the Blasted Lands and do whatever they can to stop the Iron Horde . . . before the rest of Azeroth falls before them.

Word of this surprise attack sends players rushing to the Blasted Lands to reckon with the barbarous infiltration. After the fall of a high ranking Iron Horde general named Gar’mak Bladetwist, you’ll report what you’ve witnessed in the Blasted Lands to King Wrynn or Warchief Vol’jin. It’s apparent to both the Horde and the Alliance that this is only the first salvo in a much larger conflict, and the only way to win is to take the fight directly to the Iron Horde . . . by journeying through the Dark Portal into Draenor.

The Infiltration of Blackrock Spire
An advance party of Iron Horde forces has barged right out of the Blasted Lands and pushed all the way to Blackrock Mountain, where they found refuge and supplies in Upper Blackrock Spire. There can be only one response: the Alliance and the Horde of Azeroth must face this iron incursion head on.

Available to level-90 characters for a limited time, this specially revamped five-player version of Upper Blackrock Spire sets the stage for the coming counterstrike against the Iron Horde. Here, you will face Orebender Gor'ashan, Kyrak, and Commander Tharbek as you begin to take the fight to the enemy and sharpen the skills (and swords) you’ll need to succeed on an unwelcoming alien world.

Draenor is waiting.

Diablo III PTR 2.1 Zvanične Patch Informacije, The Vault

The Vault
Blizzard je objavio interesantan blog, gde nam opisuje novi sadržaj koji nam dolazi uz Patch 2.1 - The Vault. Iako ovo nije nešto spektakularno što dolazi uz ovaj  novi veliki Patch, igračima će verovatno biti interesantno napokon da prodju kroz goblin protal!

While not much is known about these so-called "treasure goblins," one thing is certain: they're not native.

As quickly as they enter our world, they departdisappearing into mysterious portals and escaping with their misbegotten goods. But from where do these enigmatic visitors hail? And to where do their strange doorways lead? No mortal has ventured into nor even seen beyond their gilded veils to provide such answers. . . .

Until now.

 


 

Thinking With Portals:

Ever since the recent demonic invasion, tales of Treasure Goblins scurrying about Kehjistan's battlefields have riddled Sanctuary’s taverns. At first believed to be frenzied grave robbers, the goblins' true nature became known only once they were witnessed in broad daylight. Now, their grayish bodies and lizard-like heads are recognizable to all but the most cloistered of citizens, and prove a welcome sight to powerful nephalem in search of easy loot.

Oliver_Treasure_Goblin_thumb2.png

Treasure Goblins are a guarded species, however. If observed during one of their hunts, they will attempt to retreat through arcane portals—formed from magic not unlike that the Horadrim once employed to summon Town Portals and waypoints. As their presence has become more common, so have rumors of their gold-filled "vault." It is said that beyond a goblin's portal untold riches await, as well as untold horrors.

But what is fact and what is simply fable? It's time to find out.


Introducing the Vault:

In patch 2.1.0, whenever a Treasure Goblin is slain, there is chance that he (or she) will open a portal to the Vault.

The_Vault_D3_Screenshot-02_JP_1050x660_thumbnail.jpg

In the Vault, players will encounter unimaginable wealth, presumably stolen from the merchants and townfolk of Sanctuary. Piles of gold, chests brimming with treasure, and enough gems to sate even Shen himself will reward your curiosity.

The_Vault_D3_Screenshot-17_JP_thumbnail.jpgThe_Vault_D3_Screenshot-11_JP_thumbnail.jpg

Be warned! The Vault is also the domain of the Baroness Greed, the de facto leader (or so we assume) of the Treasure Goblin horde.

The_Vault_D3_Screenshot-23_JP_thumbnail.jpg

She is a swarthy matron consumed by her namesake and will not take kindly to your intrusion. End her reign and claim your spoils (if you dare)!

Step_01_thumb.jpgStep_02_thumb.jpgStep_03_thumb.jpg

 


Designing Greed:

Treasure Goblins are among the most beloved of all of Sanctuary's creatures, and their ability to escape (often with precious trinkets in tow) has drawn the focus of many adventurers. As a result, the idea that a player could actually catch one of said goblins off-guard and suspend the doorway into their world offered a tantalizing possibility for the Diablo III development team.

We had a chance to sit down with lead writer Brian Kindregan, senior level designer Matthew Berger, and a cadre of talented artists (senior character artist Chris Amaral, senior environment artist Richie Marella, and technical artist Neal Wojahn) to discuss the creation of, and inspiration behind, the Vault and its sumptuous leader. They kindly put down the weapons of their trade to help us pull back the design portal and see inside the development process.

Q. Brian, there's a lot of activity happening in the Vault—what's going on in there?

Brian: The Baroness Greed is never satisfied, so there's a lot of work to be done to keep the Vault up to snuff. Her goblin minions are continuously sent out to collect more gold. The incoming gold in turn has to be tallied. And the existing gold must be inventoried to make sure none of it has gone missing. Plus, Greed takes a bath in all her gold every three hours. She's definitely high-maintenance, as is her domain.

Q. It's been speculated that gold has no value for the goblins and that all they’re really after are the white items. Care to comment?

Brian: Greed is obsessed with all things valuable. It's a compulsion and the only cure is, apparently, more cowbell increasing amounts of physical wealth.

Q. When designing the Vault, where did you begin? And how did you begin?

Richie: We started on the Vault environment first and worked closely with the character team. We actually borrowed coin designs from them and they used a goblin statue for a mace inspiration.

Neal: Victor Lee did some really sick concepts a while ago, too; I’m not sure if they were for anything in particular but we always loved them so much that they inspired a lot of the architecture in the Vault itself.

And as Richie noted, those coin effects inspired us a lot. As we iterated, the Vault developed its own identity, and it drifted a bit away from that initial style. Instead of the Vault being a gold realm, we thought of it like a treasure realm. That's when we added a lot of things in the background for interest like gems, weapons, vases, and other valuables.

Q. What was the design inspiration for the Vault and its inhabitants?

Richie: The inspiration for the Vault was a mixture of a couple of things: a bee hive, the Lord of the Rings, and Scrooge McDuck's infamous Money Pit.

One thing early on we really wanted to go for was "mountains of treasure" that covered a lot of the Vault grounds. We also wanted to create this atmosphere of "worker" goblins, busy working away much like worker bees in a bee hive. I also played around with the hive motif with multiple storage holes built into the walls—these eventually evolved into mini-vaults.

Initially, most people assumed that Greed would be a male. When working with the character team on Greed, though, they proposed for it to be a female. This turned out to be a great idea because it fell in line with what we were going for with the bee hive motif and having the so-called queen (aka the Baroness) at the end fit perfectly.

Chris: We knew that we needed a variety of goblin types for the zone, too. A low level/low health worker goblin, a hefty brutish guard goblin, and of course the leader of the pack: The Baroness!

 

 

Q. We're definitely introduced to some new goblins in the Vault: Treasure Fiends, Peons, and Sentries. Is there an established caste system in the Goblin Kingdom?

Brian: There is indeed. The entire bureaucracy and society of the realm is set up to bring in, tabulate, and store as much gold and treasure as possible.

Q. Matthew, your team obviously had a lot of fun creating the enigmatic Treasure Goblins. How great was it to finally visit their home?

Matthew: We'd always wondered exactly what was hiding behind the portals that those pesky goblins disappear through and the idea of being able to visit that place—which we assumed would be awash with riches—was pretty fun.

Once we had decided that we were going to finally visit Greed's lair and let players try and take a fraction of her wealth back with them it was all a question of making it as memorable as possible. Everyone wanted to add their own little personal touches to the Vault. Piles of gold everywhere, goblins running around in the background, troopers appearing through portals, and (SPOILERS!) Greed's death. There really was no shortage of ideas.

Q. What about the Baroness? Can you tell us a bit about the evolution of her fight?

Matthew: The fight with Greed itself evolved fairly naturally as we played it internally. Her charge attack, for example, was initially much more straightforward: she would charge at you and if she missed she'd get stunned. To add a bit more variety we then added a second charge that had a much longer range so that she could charge all across the room sometimes and surprise the player—that then evolved into her triple charge. Initially, Greed oriented herself while preparing the charge which made it very hard to avoid, when we moved into the triple charge we had her stop doing this, allowing the player an easier time to avoid it. This coupled with the great new warning that the artists had given it was the winning formula.

In a similar fashion, we made a variant of her attack where she makes chests of treasure rain down on the player, adding a lot more tempo to give the fight some fresh legs as you got towards the finale.

Q. What was your favorite thing to design in the Vault?

Neal: I loved making the breakables because of the gold effects I got to do, but my absolute favorite was making the giant treasure chest that appears at the end of the Baroness fight! It was cool to make a mega-uber chest. As a prop artist, I don't do as much figurative work, so it was nice to add all the little elements like the face teeth and little feet on it. It was also fun because I got to do a clean version for when it's closed, and a bloody version for when it's open!

But that's not all! The character and environment teams were also kind enough to share several pieces of concept art:

VicArcadeCitadel_AKATreasureGoblinRealm_thumb3.jpgTgobEnvironment_thumb.jpgTGobPillar2_thumb.jpg
TGobCenterpiece_thumb.jpgTGobBackgroundElement_thumb.jpgTGobBraziers_thumb.jpg
TGobFloor01_thumb.jpgTGobPillarDetails_thumb.jpgStep_03_thumb2.jpg

 


And That's a (Gold) Wrap. . .

And so it is, that in patch 2.1.0, Treasure Goblins will become just a little more reckless, offering players a chance to finally venture through into their world to reclaim the lost spoils of war and contend with Greed, the Goblin Baroness.

Fortune and glory awaits those who are bold enough to step through, so good luck! We'll see you on the other side.
