Legion - Treasure Demons
Legion adds a Treasure Demon that will start casting an Escape Portal when you engage. It appears to activate a counter that counts down as it escapes, possibly giving you more loot if you kill it faster. It drops Sanctuary Coins.



Legion - Unholy Death Knight Artifact Intro
Another Artifact intro today. This one actually has some working voice overs starting at 15:10.

[Legion Mage]Liking talent placement in datamined build, RoP looks cool, hope it drops at feet, CD is prolly a PH
Rune of Power changes are not complete yet. It should have 2 charges, 45sec recharge, and drop at your feet. (WarcraftDevs)

Art
Hail May Male Nelf get more druidic long beards in the future? I'd love my DH to look like this https://t.co/jZujGJEQ26
we're keeping track of these desires, no guarantees but they aren't falling on deaf ears (artofcgrobinson)

https://t.co/JXydljarAI I wouldn't even entertain this. Since WC3, Orcs have hunched. Don't cave, Chris.
.what if it was an option and not a requirement/forced change? I get the argument, hero orcs aren't hunched, cont. (artofcgrobinson)
.if we did this IMO we would need to give U the choice of which posture you feel most reps your character (artofcgrobinson)
That's, like, the perfect solution. Could the Forsaken get the same treatment?
I fundamentally feel like forsaken posture is appropriate for the character, orcs are different (artofcgrobinson)

I know the plan is to match visual color to weapon but pls consider leaving red flame on blue sword https://t.co/H9nt0Tf8o9
that does look cool, will consider (artofcgrobinson)

Hey man, I love plate armor sets, was wondering if y'all could maybe use this model on newer sets
I'm pretty sure we are, those are used primarily for leather/cloth but we occasionally find a way to sneak them into plate (artofcgrobinson)

Why are Mr. Didier's quotes all through the Art of World of Warcraft book?!
Samwise started all of this with original Warcraft games, any WoW art book would be incomplete without his words (artofcgrobinson)
he also continues to contribute to WoW whenever he can - he painted the goblin and worgen crests for instance (artofcgrobinson)

PvP
Is there any way we could get a "Target only players" checkbox in controls tab for legion? (same as /targetenemyplayer macro)
Target Next Enemy Player exists in the keybinds (holinka)

Ghostcrawler Tweets
Ghostcrawler still occasionally talks about WoW. Remember that he no longer works for or speaks for Blizzard.

I'm not familiar enough to have an informed opinion. It is hard to add new abilities when bars are full. (OccupyGStreet)

Did u get legion alpha? I'm currently a happy(not) member of No-access club
I did not. I know people, but since I'm not actively playing, it seems mean to deny someone who might appreciate it more. (OccupyGStreet)

do you get alpha/beta access on the FF list since your a former dev? always wondered about that.
I rarely ever get early access as a courtesy. Often other devs are the last people you want seeing your unfinished game. (OccupyGStreet)
Ah that's an interesting thought thinking about it, did you go to blizzcon this year btw? If not, do you plan on going again?
I didn't go this year. I had hoped to but it didn't feel right. Maybe next year. (OccupyGStreet)
It's for Blizzard, not me, and I worry about the way it would come across, like who does he think he is? (OccupyGStreet)

Do you ever think that the events of Wrath were a bit too soon? I, personally, feel like that was the big finish.
It was interesting how many players considered that the end of the story. (OccupyGStreet)
I always considered the story to be orcs vs humans, since those were the original two RTS games. Shrug. (OccupyGStreet)
It probs comes from the majority of players being active from WC3 to Wrath but I feel the corrupted hero story resounds more
Even before I was at Blizzard, I always said: if in doubt, make the hero become corrupted (Arthas, Kerrigan, Diablo...) (OccupyGStreet)



Computers - Setup of the Month
Each month or so we will post a couple of hardware setups for those of you who are thinking of upgrading their computer!

This month
The current SSD prices are fairly flat right now, with most SSDs under $0.50 per gigabyte when on sale. No new hardware that is worth waiting for is expected anytime soon.

Depending on how much you want to overclock, you may need to spend a bit more for a better CPU cooler like the NH-D14.

Unless you are doing a lot of video rendering or streaming, you do not need the 6700K and should spend that money elsewhere.

Make sure to keep your AMD and Nvidia drivers up to date. Don't forget to visit the Computer Forum for any extra questions!

    Not especially unless you aren't in a hurry. GTX 970 can be found on sale for ~$250 for people in the US, pretty good bang for the buck right now.

    Too much diablo in wow honestly..
  1. aarro's Avatar
    I doubt the treasure goblin will make it to release edition but if it does, it will be a fun addition

    Treasure Goblin... That reminds me of Treasure Goblins from Golden Axe
  1. Shawn B's Avatar
    I didn't know you could comment on these.

    What if the last boss in Legion IS Diablo! :O
  1. Mister K's Avatar
    I welcome the Diablo features however as long as they totally not deviate from WoW and make it too different...

    It seems they are preparing to settle down and reduce the content that they produce. I can the following happen within the next few years:

    1) More auto generated content
    2) Auto rehashing/scaling of ALL older raids, gear, dungeons and quests.
    3) Scaling of gear, damage by level and % (this has been in the game since pre WotLK) to keep content relevant
    4) Mini games such as the Treasure Goblin to keep people engaged even when no new raid tiers are out.
    5) One / Two Raid tiers per expansion (but probably at a larger scale?).

    Hey you know what's really fun while playing diablo3? TREASURE GOBLINS!

    Could be a great addition.

    I want to buy a mouse and speakers, considering the budget from both the mouse and speakers of Narwhal and Dolphin which of the 2 should i get?

    I mean..common sense would indicate the narwhal cause they are more expensive by default but its a facking mouse...any would do right?

    As others have said, and I agree, Diablo III designs are welcome to WoW but only if they fit our system and as much as I enjoy Treasure Goblins in RoS I'm a little nervous (for Blizz) that this is a bit of a push for WoW... but I'm sure they will become a positive feature. And who knows, timed kills may become a grander design in WoW?

    Why is the Razer Deathadder still being listed in the Setup of the Month?

    The Steelseries Rival mouse tops it by leaps and bounds.

    ~ Better proportioned weight
    ~ Better grip and more flexible (Works great for Palm, Fingertip and Claw positions)
    ~ Better tracking and clicking
    ~ Better durability

    blizzard is clearly much more happy with diablo model then with wows - its most probably changing in the direction of launch every 2 years with loads of content then year later extra raid tier and nothing else - cheap succesfull addictis will buy anyway so lets milk this cashcow

    Why does the Unicorn System still use the Noctua NH-D14 and not the D15 which comes with much better Fans?
