    Battle on the High Seas, Legendary Sigil Drop Rate, Children's Week, Blue Tweets, DLC

    1.0.8 is Not This Week, Diablo III Hotfixes: April, What if All Legendaries Were Good?, On Gear Customization and Stats

    Patch 5.3 - Battle on the High Seas Scenario
    Battle on the High Seas is the shortest scenario added in Patch 5.3, taking less than 10 minutes to run.



    Patch 5.3 - Sigil of Power and Wisdom Drop Rate
    It looks like it will be easier to collect those Sigil of Power and Sigil of Wisdom to catch up on the legendary quest line in Patch 5.3!



    Children's Week 2013 Live
    Children's Week 2013 is live, but doesn't have any significant changes this year. Our friends over at Icy Veins have a nice guide! Be sure to use alts to collect all of the pets.



    Glorious Conquest Vendors Removed Until 5.3

Glorious Conquest PvP gear is being changed from item level 512 to item level 496, but this wasn’t a change that could be applied via a hotfix. In the meantime, we wanted to avoid a situation where players intending to purchase upgrades would buy these items, only to find that they had purchased cosmetic items when they are reduced to their new item levels with the arrival of patch 5.3.

    You can read about the coming item changes in the PvP Gear in Patch 5.3 blog. See you on the battlefield!

    To the best of my knowledge, there are no plans to change how things are working for outdoor areas in Pandaria at this time. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    We'd actually like to do that. (Source)

    Many popular addons like Questhelper have become baseline over time. Why of all things do map coordinates still need an addon?
    Nothing in the game itself uses coordinates, does it? (Source)

    Pet Battles
    Agree, but for example Minfernal is not fun to farm. Always 5-8 ppl camping out.
    The challenge of rare anything is players want them to be rare to everyone but them. If they aren't rare, they lose value. (Source)

    do devs see idling folks in Felwood camping Minfernals as an issue? CRZ + long spawn times = many folks in small area.
    The idea behind rare spawns is they're hard to get. If there are fewer folks competing, we'd just decrease spawn rates to compensate. (Source)

    World
    Hey GC. Is there a specific lore-reason why flying is disabled in Silvermoon City/Eversong Woods, or just an oversight?
    Making Silvermoon flyable would take longer than it took to make Stormwind flyable. Just wasn't built with that in mind. (Source)

    Misc
    So at the end of cataclysm I remember reading a post mortem of things you learned. I'm curious what you've learned from mists?
    Hmm. I'd say two things off the top of my head. 1) We wanted to offer options but didn't offer *enough* options (e.g. GL). (Source)
    2) As many difficulty levels as we offered, it wasn't enough. (Source)
    I said 2, but also we didn't do a good job of providing direction at L90. Also wish we had added some dungeons in maybe 5.3. (Source)
    When I said "not enough direction at 90" I meant that you probably wanted to get better gear but weren't sure how or where or in what order. (Source)

    It makes 0 sense to share data with people that don't have the knowledge to interpret it correctly.
    Ultimately, we don't want to be in the position of having to ask community permission every time we want to make a change. (Source)
    Which is how I think it would feel if we had to defend every data point to every challenger. (Source)

    Pretty disappointed in any event, hope this doesn't turn out to be another "TRISPEC! ...nvm, just kidding"
    We have to be able to use our PTR builds to actually test stuff. Please don't use PTR as some kind of press release. (Source)
    what you use the public TEST realm for testing? What kind of ass backward development methodology is that?
    I don't fault players. Data mining and sometimes even our patch notes represent any change as a fact not an experiment. (Source)

    do you think listening to players too much has changed the game in a negative way? I enjoyed TBC more despite the imbalances.
    Overall, I'd say no. But I agree there is a risk there. (Source)
    If you implement too many suggestions, you end up with everything meh instead of having some things feel really awesome. (Source)

    i still keep getting Widsom instead of Power, have been 3 away from getting 10 sigils of power that i need since i got the sigil part like 3 weeks after MoP and thats on my main. i have terribad luck lol.

    but yeah would make it way easier for the alts, this patch is better for those who's trying to level up alts anyhow.

    I keep getting the wrong sigils...I need power and don't ever get anything aside from Wisdom. I have like 12-13 wisdom and 4 power. Drops need to be "smarter" in a sense. It's starting to get annoying. I'd like to eventually finish this legendary thing.

    Wowhead suggested that MGV did drop Power at a higher rate. Ended up with 14 and 10...only ran ToES and MGV in the end. Ended up with everything I wished as well..Sha-touched weapon and Tier head plus 3 other tier pieces. Trinket and cloak. 8 Sha kills, 6 WoE, 4 Spiritbinder, 2 Garalon, 2 Empress.

    I suppose that is pretty much "how it was intended" - but ofc sometimes people are unlucky.

    So, in short: the internet.

    It should have never been two different currencies to begin with. Just a single quest to collect 20 sigils. Hindsight 20/20 and such.

    How exactly is clicking on something first to get the tag "hard"?

    Hard in terms of time invested in waiting. Not every "hard" = complicated fight.

    So after reading the Tweet about the Minfernal I went out to Felwood to see what there was to see. Tamed a blue quality Minfernal just as soon as I got there. Doesn't seem like a hassle to me at all.

    And then, when you get all the sigils, you get the "A change of command" quest and no one really interested in doing it.
    And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

    Yeah, that one sucked to be behind on. Took me 2 hours of spamming trade and OpenRaid to get 5 people to do it.

    Reminded me why I like LFD.
