Our friends over at Diablofans launched a Diablo Immortal Build Tool today! You can see skills, items, the Paragon trees, and more!



Blood Knight Skills
Blizzard hasn't announced a Blood Knight class, but there is a class, models, and skills in the game data. We've got an incomplete version of the current Blood Knight skills below. Keep in mind that nothing here is final.

  • Arena Season 2 gear will be available at a discount from Area 52 vendors and will no longer require Arena rating to purchase.

  • Level: 70
  • Location: Caverns of Time, Tanaris

Players must be attuned to enter the instance. Read about the attunement process below. Improve your standing with the Scale of the Sands to earn rewards from Indormi in the Caverns of time.

New Raid: The Black Temple

Defeat the Betrayer himself—Illidan Stormrage—atop the Black Temple.

  • Raid bosses: 9 (High Warlord Naj'entus, Supremus, Shade of Akama, Teron Gorefiend, Gurtogg Bloodboil, Reliquary of Souls, Mother Shahraz, The Illidari Council, Illidan Stormrage)
  • Level: 70

Complete the Battle for Mount Hyjal and Black Temple Attunements

Those who want to brave the two new raid instances must complete the required attunement quests first. The required quests must be completed once per character.

Battle for Mount Hyjal Attunement: Gaining entry to the Hyjal Summit

To access the Battle for Mount Hyjal, you must first travel to the Caverns of Time in Tanaris and find Soridormi. Soridormi will offer the quest “The Vials of Eternity” to those who are at least Revered with the Keepers of Time. You can earn reputation with the Keepers of Time in the Old Hillsbrad Foothills and Black Morass dungeons in the Caverns of time.

Complete the quest "The Vials of Eternity" by defeating Kael'thas Sunstrider in Tempest Keep and Lady Vashj in Serpentshine Cavern and you will be attuned to the Battle for Mount Hyjal raid.

Black Temple Attunement: Gaining entry to the Black Temple

To earn a chance to face Illidan Stormrage, travel to Shadowmoon Valley and seek out Anchorite Ceyla at the Altar of Sha'tar (for the Aldor) or Arcanist Thelis at the Sanctum of the Stars (for the Scryers). Complete the following quests:

  • Tablets of Baa'ri
  • Oronu the Elder
  • The Ashtongue Corruptors
  • The Warden's Cage
  • Proof of Allegiance
  • Akama
  • Seer Udalo
  • A Mysterious Portent
  • The Ata'mal Terrace
  • Akama's Promises
    • After completing "Akama's Promise", the quest chain continues inside the Serpentshrine Cavern raid instance in Coilfang Reservoir (Zangarmarsh). Look for Seer Olum after defeating Fathom-Lord Karathress to pick up the next quest.
  • The Secret Compromised
  • Ruse of the Ashtongue
  • An Artifact From the Past
    • “An Artifact From the Past” requires entry into the Battle for Mount Hyjal raid. The attunement quest for that raid must be completed in order to gain entry to the Black Temple.
  • The Hostage Soul
  • Entry into the Black Temple
  • A Distraction for Akama

Completing "A Distraction for Akama" will award you the Medallion of Karabor, which allows its wearer entry into the Black Temple.

The Betrayer awaits those foolish enough to face him. You are not prepared. . . .

Burning Crusade Classic - Honor Rate Increase in Phase 3
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
Hi Zuelase,

Thank you for the feedback! This is a topic that we have been closely following along and discussing internally. For some transparency, we want to be extra careful when adjusting significant systems such as rewards in Burning Crusade Classic. We strive for authentic recreations as the best approach with our design as substituting our own judgements has great potential to harm the spirit of the original game. For example, we risk negatively impacting the perceived value of these items or affecting other areas of the game by changing the rate of power progression.

That said, we hear your frustrations with the current rate of PvP reward acquisition and think there are ample reasons to justify a #change. When we compare PvE and its rewards, there’s a stark contrast with the level of effort and time investment required. Players are better now, all the best raid strategies have been figured out, and those rewards are much more accessible!

We attempted to address this in Season 2 by introducing PvP faction items early (a change introduced with Sunwell’s release) and reducing the costs of previous season gear by half, but we don’t think those changes were nearly enough.

The following changes are planned to release with tomorrow’s Phase 3 content unlock:

  • PvP faction items now have an Honored reputation requirement (from Revered).
  • The battleground mark costs for Season 1 gear have been removed.
  • The battleground mark costs on Vindicator items have been reduced by half.
  • The amount of bonus honor rewarded from the marks-to-honor repeatable quest has been increased.
  • The Call to Arms daily quest now provides 3 battleground marks and the bonus honor reward has been increased.
  • The Halaa and Terokkar PvP daily’s bonus honor reward has been significantly increased.
  • The Hellfire Fortification PvP daily now provides a bonus honor reward.
  • Tier 4 and 5 tokens can now be exchanged for season 1 and 2 gear at tier vendors.

We hope that this will make a significant impact. Please continue to tell us how you feel about this, we’ll be listening!

Every story needs a teller. And every world needs builders. What if that could be you?

For thirty years, Blizzard has been creating universes for millions of players around the globe. This requires a diverse team of developers willing to lend their voices, to listen and to be heard. That is our mission.

Do you like survival games? Do you want to join a collaborative team of experienced developers at the early stage of a new project in a new world...and help write the next chapter in Blizzard's story?

This is your call to adventure. Will you answer it?
