MMO-Champion - Breath of the Black Prince, Inferno Skeleton King Cleared, New Cow Level
Update: Method has now defeated the Butcher in Inferno mode!

Diablo 3 - Most Awesome Video Spoiler Ever. Blue Posts, Giveaway

Breath of the Black Prince
To go along with the new The Black Prince faction there are some quests that end with the reward of a legendary item, the Breath of the Black Prince! This item is likely used to upgrade your gear in some way. Before helping Wrathion, you first share a drink with him while talking about the future of Azeroth.

The first quest in the series requires an honored reputation level, which is earned by killing the mogu and mantid in the Townlong Steppes and the Dread Wastes, as well as any raid creatures.

You must also collect Sigil of Wisdom x 10 and Sigil of Power x 10 from Mogu'shan Vaults, Heart of Fear, or Terrace of Endless Spring. While you are raiding, you need to defeat the Sha of Fear in Terrace of Endless Spring to obtain a Chimera of Fear.

At some point after this he will reward you with a Breath of the Black Prince, but the quests are not chained yet, so we can't be certain as to what the requirements are.

According to the quest descriptions he seems heavily invested in the fate of Pandaria, even hinting towards the oncoming Horde and Alliance war fleets that will turn the beach of Krasarang Wilds into a battlezone in Patch 5.1.

Bonus Level-90 Arena Pass Realm

In addition to granting access to the exclusive level-85 Arena Pass realm, players will also gain access to the special level-90 competition when the realm reopens a few weeks after Mists of Pandaria launches. This means that Arena Pass subscribers who have purchased the expansion will be able to access level-90 gear and talents, and be able to take a level-90 monk into the Arena with top level gear.

Players who purchase an Arena Pass and participate in the competition can earn an Armored Murloc in-game pet. The top players will also contend for a chance to achieve the “Vanquisher” title for their live characters.
If you would like to demonstrate your Arena prowess, are eager for a chance to earn exclusive loot, or just want to reserve a spot in the level-90 Mists of Pandaria Arena Pass realm, the time to register is now!

Inferno Skeleton King Cleared
Method has taken on Inferno Skeleton King and defeated him!

They have only killed the Skeleton King at this point. Do note that up to the Skeleton king is only part of the first act and they still have lots of the game to go till they complete act 1.

Another point to be made is that this is a group of fully co-ordinated, skilled, dedicated and hardcore gamers who have been playing regularly since the moment of release. It will take quite a while longer for the average player and even most seasoned gamers to reach this point. That being said, it's amazing to see the speed in which they have reached this stage of the game, but remember that the hardest is yet to come...

Meh, I prefer to take my time, soak up the atmosphere, listen to the story, and loot every single damn barrel I find.

But yeah, as others here have said, completing normal mode is by no means finishing the game... It's just the start. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Diablo 3 Beaten in 6 Hours
That's the problem... people are used to playing Skyrim
You can beat Skyrim in a few hours if your intent is to rush to the end of the game as fast as possible. You can beat the original Super Mario Bros in 5 minutes.

If your intent is to simply race to the end of the game as quickly as possible I'm sure you can complete Normal difficulty in very little time. If your intent is to take your time and enjoy it, stop worrying about what people rushing to the end of the game think.

Luckily, unlike other games, regardless of how quickly you want to rush to the end, the near-limitless content provided through randomized events, dungeons, enemies and items (and their random drop chance) mean that you'll be able to play for years to come. Welcome to Diablo III, please enjoy. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    I don't get the fail whale reference to Diablo III...

    Granted I waited until like 6 a.m. to play it, and I've only played super casually each class to level 6... but, I have had no issues with the game whatsoever.

    What is everyone's beef?

    I believe it is Boub's site, you are a guest able to use it freely and it is up to his discretion to post what he likes. You are free to not come here. And yes, there have also been updates to Rift and SWToR when they were released.

    This site used to be a WoW only site, true - but by popular demand it also features other games as you can see by the sub-forums

    then stick that crap into the sub forum instead of a main page.

    looking at some vids i cant realy see nor believe what the effin fuzz is about that game.

    not only does it look shit, retarded clicking gameplay, but it is cheap aswell.

    it will die faster then rift ever could and you shouldnt put to much main page attention to it!

    I am not sure what is so hard to understand about this? You don't tell the man who invites you into his house what to do in his house.

    Whatever your comment on D3s longetivity is concerned, I believe you are just as spot on as people who proclaimed Age of Conan, Warhammer, Aion, Rift and SWToR to be the next WoW Killer.

    Some people do. Lots of people, sadly. We charitably say that those people 'lack class.'

    That said, it does make the daily posts feel a little disjointed to me. If I fail to notice the D3 icon before a bullet-point, I'm left wondering when they added an 'Inferno Skeleton King' raid and how I missed that, or something to that effect. Today's post had some WoW info sandwiched between D3 news, and that was just hard to read. A filter would be nice, just to keep the information sorted... unless there already is one and I'm just not seeing it.

    I am inclined to agree, but wouldn't it be more helpful if the posters who rage here make a thread in the "Suggestion" Forum and try to argue their point decently instead of being hostile and resort to name-calling?

    Kripparrian and No Lifers got world first inferno Butcher didn't they? The might deserve some front page attention as well:-)

    What's with the "world firsts"? It's not an MMO. You didn't announce the names of the people who finished more popular games like Mass Effect 3 or Call of Duty first.

    Well that's lame. Hardly fair when MMO-Champ was started by a European, and there is a whole world that uses Curse.

    on youtube says both method and kripp uploaded inferno butcher ten hours ago so they are even at this point. props to kripp for keeping up with eu and asia even with 9-15 hours of deficit.

    Sorry to ask but why is there Diablo 3 news putting on the front page so much? Its MMO-Champion not BLIZZARD-Champion. If WoW is slow at their news, do some RIFT or SW:ToR news instead?

    I know, discussed a lot of times, if only the name of the site was changed you wouldn't get the fuss

    Hmm legendary item for enchantments? Curious.
  1. TowerTom's Avatar
    Love people getting pissy at some news about another game, from the developer of the game we all love and know.

    Get a grip. It's a gaming website. Blizzard makes WoW and Diablo. WoW is dead this week due to D3 so there is bound to be some hype and news around it. You're all whining like little girls that are on PMS. It's a Curse's website, run by Boub. Even though there is a specific Diablo website under curse, MMO-Champion has a lot bigger user base and gets more views than probably all of the other fan sits/community sites put together.

    Get over it.

    Well at least this has a definite 'launch' time like an MMO so everyone was on a level playing field (with plenty of time to prepare in the beta, just like WoW) and this site does have a Blizz bias to it. Given the annual pass offer a lot of WoW players hare playing Diabl at the moment - I know most of my guild seems to be...

    OTOH, like Guildwars 2, there is a dedicated Diablo site here and there's an argument that D3 and GW2 announcements could be left to those sites and this one should just focus on WoW.

    What i find funny is that they actually are trying world first races on diablo 3 lol.


    EDIT:I have now just beat Bowser on mario i am claiming world first, since no one else posted it. Also claiming world first on a game mod for Skyrim that i have not yet released, nevertheless i beat it first and the boss mob in it WORLD FIRST!

    OMG That cow level is full of awesome!
  1. Wayne25uk's Avatar
    Well for starters i saw no cow in that level only My little ponies....

    Secondly is this the same Method from WoW? If it is what is with this urge to blitz through a game and sacrifice socializing and sleep just to be the first at something,how very very sad....if you watch the Butcher kill then skip to 2:54 and just listen to the guys reaction to the kill,it literally sounds like he just had a great orgasm.

    Cant get any sadder than that,lastly i dont get the Daily Blink thing either but then again to me they are very poor with 90% of the tripe they put out.

    While it certainly is his site it wouldn´t be this place people would go to get their Diablo updates - and as noted the update shouldn´t be focused around it being Diablo 3, but that Method did something. I do however not see it as that spectacular even with the difficulty level considering you can basicly rush it from the checkpoint. Now if it had been on hardcore I would be fully impressed. Updating with it on the site just because its them seem like a fanboy service to me.

    In regards to the other news the legendary item sounds interesting tbh. Would be fun if they made a new way to obtain a legendary (as long as its not overly easy ofc).
