MMO-Champion - PTR Release Build, Class Balance and Dragonwrath, Fan Art, The Daily Blink
Diablo 3 - Today we have Beta 6 Screenshots and a Blue Post on Monster Affixes! I will be newsing D3 news regularly in one short line since more than half of the readers bought the annual pass anyway.

PTR Back to Release Build
Another Release flagged PTR build (15005) was pushed recently with no significant changes. Don't forget that Season 10 is ending on November 29, just around the time that 4.3 should go live.



Statistics: Class Balance and Dragonwrath
One of the more popular requests for a Statistics post has been a class balance type of post. For the first graph we simply took the class balance for characters that have earned more than 5k Valor points, resulting in a sample size of roughly 1.8 million characters from the US and EU. This helps to remove the massive amount of alts we saw last time. Nothing too unexpected here, warlocks and rogues are still coming in last place.

The second graph shows you how many new Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest were created each week. The slight decrease in the last displayed week may be due to the frequency of our data updates, so regard it with some skepticism.

    Awesome comic! As for the graph: makes sense that Druids and Paladins are at the top due to their diversity of roles, but I'm surprised that Shamans are higher than Mages, for example. It feels like every third toon in Stormwind is a Mage (and probably arcane spec).

    As long as its only a setback and not merely a setback, we should be fine. Also its true, dont attack the chicken.

    The Daily Blink really needs to stop making stuff. They clearly have lost any of the wit and humor they 'used' to have. All I get from that comic is that "LOLZ SKYRIM IS BTRRER TAN WIW" Justify it all you want, but even if it's an "unfair and unreasonable" (and I'll personally add in uneducated) comparison, they could have at least tried to make wow sound better than they did
    .-At level 4 in wow, you can single-handedly curb a rebellion (Undead), take on a legion of Worgen, be the largest business tycoon in the area (Goblin), and much more.
    -Warrior Shouts can send people running for their lives, disorient people to the point that their movement is impaired, cause enemies to use less force with their attacks, and even rally allies, giving them more vitality
    .-Exploration gives you achievements, tabards, as well as knowledge of locations that would be relevant for later (WELL, I'll give you that it isn't much, but it's still more than 'fatigue')

    I have nothing against Skyrim, but the Daily Blink is really peeving me lately.

    Is it just me or is that graph completely useless? As Warlock and Rogue are the least populous classes, saying that they have the fewest characters with over 5000 valor points is essentially saying the exact same thing and tells us nothing useful in the slightest. It would be much more useful to sample each class individually, then see what percentage of the total of that class is over 5000.

    That faint whistling you hear is the sound of The Joke sailing right over your head.

    A followup to address just that is coming soonish.

    Jokes are funny, beauty. This isn't funny, so it is clearly not a joke.
