Look for the following all week long:

  • Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar and in Boralus has a quest for you – The Very Best. Or, if you forget to pick it up there, you can start it within the Adventure Journal.
  • Quest requirement: Win 5 pet battles versus other players with a team of three level-25 pets.
  • Reward: One Ultimate Battle-Training Stone.
  • Passive bonus: All Pet Battle experience gains are increased by +200%

Every Week
The Bonus Events system consists of a rotating schedule of different activities, currently scheduled to run each week beginning on Tuesdays. Each Bonus Event grants a passive bonus to a particular game activity and offers a once-per-event quest with a noteworthy reward for accomplishing a related goal. The in-game calendar can serve as your one-stop reference for the event schedule. The Adventure Guide also offers a direct link to active Bonus Events, allowing you to easily accept any associated quests.

    Except they did get 100 yesterday.

    Wowprogress doesn't track China outside of the first fee kills which are manually added.

    Blizzard has their own leaderboards on their website that for some reason my phone isn't letting me paste the link.

    Hope Kotaku isn't bullshitting about Diablo 4, if it's legit. They should've fucking kept it in.

    Just give us a title is enough to save face and all the damage control. Now they gone and made it even worse.

    Yeah, its strange for Kotaku to write this article, because they can lose a ton of credibility if they are bullshitting, and at the same time I have no idea why they'd pull an announcement like that, because they had to know they had to get a little backlash from the hardcore Diablo fans with this announcement...

    No, if we stand strong we can achive things.

    Why is Ji'arak the only way to get the cape that completes the Plate Uldir set? A boss that is only up once every couple months and you have a very low chance to get something from, let alone the thing you want?

    Well guild number 75 on the alliance list doesn't have credit for Mythic Uldir, Heck the GM or some of their most played toons don't have Mythic g'huun killed. I'm going to lean on the side of blizzard opening x-realm mythic due to time rather than on the goal they set forward.

    Which guild?

    #75 alliance on Blizzards leaderboard is the guild Fate which checking on wowprogress also shows them as having killed mythic Ghuun.

    Kotaku still has credibility? When did that happen?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Whoever called the shots for the program for Diablo at Blizzcon is in some hot water right now. Probably high up, too, VP level - marketing most likely. Not a firing offense, but someone had a bad day yesterday.

    Considering it's Kotaku, I wouldn't be surprised if that's a managed leak - Blizzard doesn't have to publically admit they fucked up, and the fans are reassured something else is being worked on.

    I worked in marketing for years, this is how they operate. They obviously have a lot invested in Immortal, so they/someone decided to pull out all the stops for it, taking advantage of the spotlight of Blizzcon, and didn't factor in the fans. Well, if they learned anything from this, they won't do that again. (Kind of a sucker bet, considering the WoW team at the moment)

    I'm bummed that Wyatt got dragged/bamboozled into it, because he's been a pretty solid dev for Diablo, and one of the public faces of Diablo 3 since it was in development - he's one of the few Diablo dev's I'd recognize, at all. I honestly think he was excited to announce it, expected a Metzen "RAWR!" response, not the silence he did get.

    The "Do you guys even have phones?" asshole can still go fuck himself. Smug prick.

    Edited to add:

    Blizzard officially denied it. I give up. Fucking Blizzard, lol. It seems to be more about their ego than the truth, now. The Kotaku bit feels right - they lost the game director for Diablo a long time ago, and it would make sense that it's changed course over the last couple of years - same as the D2-D3 timeline. Diablo as a franchise just can't seem to catch a break.

    I think the best course is to let it go. Diablo is dead in the water for the next couple of years, go find something else to play in the meantime. Path of Exiles is a good alternative, or the Torchlight games, or Grim Dawn. Immortal won't scratch that Diablo itch, those games will.
