Patch 8.1 - Demonology Warlock Changes
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
In the current build up on the PTR (Public Test Realm), a few changes were made to the Demonic Consumption level 100 talent:

  • Any imp that the Demonic Tyrant consumes now has a chance to grant you the Demonic Core buff. If your Tyrant consumes six imps when summoned, you have six individual chances to get a Demonic Core buff applied to you.
  • The damage buff to the Demonic Tyrant from consuming the Wild Imps is now much higher.

One additional note about the Demonic Tyrant:
  • In an upcoming build, the Demonic Tyrant will also extend the duration of any demons summoned from the Nether Portal level 100 talent.

Play with the Blues - Nov 8

Tomorrow, November 8, beginning at 4 PM Pacific time (7 PM Eastern), we'll be queuing for the new Warfront. As with previous tests, we'll be making a couple PTR-only changes: there will be special queuing tables set up in Orgrimmar and Zandalar, and any character level 110 or higher will be able to participate.

Additionally, there are a couple of changes to the Darkshore zone that we've enabled for testing purposes which we'd like to clarify. All of the Darkshore World Quests are currently active on PTR, and both factions are able to loot the treasures scattered around the zone. After release, only the faction that currently holds the zone will be able to loot the treasures, and only a handful of the World Quests will be enabled at any one time.

We hope to see you tomorrow evening!

WoW Secret Finding Discord Discovers Music Secret in Waycrest Manor
The WoW Secret Finding Discord has discovered the musical easter egg in Waycrest Manor that was mentioned during the Immersive Sounds of Azeroth Panel at Blizzcon.

  • 5 pipe organs afflicted by drust magic are found throughout Waycrest Manor.
  • Walking near them spawns a witch that you need to kill.
  • Lady Waycrest will become angry and play a discord chord on her organ when you kill one.
  • After you have killed all 5 witches and cleared the instance, return to "The Grand Foyer" at the entrance.
  • After a few minutes music from other Blizzard games will begin to play!

The music plays a loop of 6 familiar tracks.

    I blame the parents who only buy a smartphone for their kids instead of a good PC (less trouble, cheaper, insant joy). Shame on you.
    You make this market big. Soon even less content will be published for PC. Enjoy your 5 inch screen of trash.

    I hope China will stand up and close their borders for mobile games. So they can keep their money for their own developers in their country.

    Thank you sir. If only the community had more people like this.
    Instead of the high percentage of morons we have now.
    I am at university-level and i can pretty much tell that the Diablo 3 fanbase are totally right to be enraged by this and that both of you are talking garbage.

    You both are propably paid by Blizzard, like that guy in the Q and A panel that tried to be positive about Diablo 3. Please stop calling other people morons, especially when it comes to people expecting a PC-game announcement..

    So, the "trusted" site called Kotaku (the only ones to write about this "information"), says that Diablo 4 was pulled due to Immortals bad reception.
    I some how doubt that, the only thing that would have saved Blizzard in that pit they dug with the mobile announcement would have been just that, Diablo 4, and nothing else, people would have laughed and said "oh you!, blizzard" if that had been, but alas they didnt, and here we are.

    Actually, he have a point, not in the insulting, and you too have a point.

    Blizzard could have announce this game, and a tease about Diablo 4, like Bethesda did for ES mobile game and the next ES VI

    The game still will do good, and blizzard is right about trying to insert in the mobile market. But the core fan base need to be keep. So they need to try and fix the situation they jump into it.

    Still all the negative publicity they getting isnt a bad thing, CoD Infinity Warframe is a good example of that.

    I understand being like "blizzcon sucked" cuz the announcements sucked, but that doesnt mean this game is somehow garbage because of that, or shouldnt exist. It also doesnt mean blizzard is somehow failing or flopping.

    The kids crying bout wow just needed something new to cry about because 8.1 might leave them with less to bitch about, and the internet *fucking needs its hate boner*.

    Sure, the comment about them putting their "best devs" on mobile is pretty shitty and if that results in all of their games going to shit, then I'll be right there complaining. But all this entitled bullshit fake outrage is nauseating. So fucking embarrassed to be a gamer these days.
    I logged in after years of not being logged in to MMO-Champion JUST so I can tell you: Thank you.
    Every little glimpse of hope I see in the community is worth congratulating. You ARE right.
    People are over reacting so freaking much over this announcement that it feels like gamers nowadays are just keyboard warriors, plain and simple.

    I mean, look at the latest Fallout game. People whine and cry and complain about it because, I assume, Bethesday decided to go down another path than their original Fallout games. I see the same happening to Diablo right now. But no one seem to be able to reflect on ANYTHING else, like the fact that Blizzard made a post on their website pre-Blizzcon says that they are working on multiple Diablo project and their biggest one is not yet ready to be announced.

    My guess is that they only announced Immortal at BlizzCon so they at least had something to say, instead of having yet a second consecutive year with no Diablo panel. And to be fair... I'm glad they did. I'm also fine with the fact that they're trying to reach another audience. They are not ENTITLED to bring game contents exclusively for PC gamers.

    In the end, they're a great company, and just like any other company in the business, they will evolve and try new stuff, like it or not. In the end, we play THEIR games... as should be.

    I remember a time when I was excited to see what companies would bring us. Now... people are taking everything for granted to a point that they think they deserve to decide what should be or not, just because they're paying...
    Sad.

    A mobile game is fine yes. Np.

    The problem is how Blizzard decide to use their resources and what they present to their costumers.

    Dunno if a troll edit or on purpose, but the Diablo Immortal site is hilarious. Had a real good laugh about it.

    Pretty sure the bulk of the actual fanbase was fine with Blizzcon as a whole. It was a mid-expansion Blizzcon and most of the announcements were par to encouraging. Love to the WoW team realizing BfA is in a rut and they showed content that can jazz the fans. WCIII remaster ... *drools and hands over money*
    Hearthstone showed their usual humor and fun.
    Starcraft II... continues..
    Even Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm, while not big, show creativity and ... also fun, if they are your games.

    Yes you will find outliers, but on the whole BLIZZCON was fine.

    Then.. Diablo mobile. The problem the FAN BASE has ... (and investors by the market reaction) ... is this game was not for them.

    (I use this analogy in discussions, and a better one has not popped up) watch Princess Bride. The scene where Humperdink tells Buttercup that the 'entire fleet' will celebrate their wedding, and she replies 'Except your four fastest [that were supposedly looking for Westley]?' Humperdink's reaction is EXACTLY the reaction Wyatt Chang and company had when they were asked if it was playable on PC... the features [like clear effects] would be ported to D3 ... a new character... ANYTHING. That reaction of 'oh... crap... we got caught.' D3 was not even on the radar of the LEAD DEVELOPERS. The PC was not a consideration. They had a full day of firefighting before their Q&A panel the next day to come up with ANYTHING. Instead, they double down and cut the time back to sell their product to the wrong crowd and cut Q&A as a thing.

    There is nothing wrong with mobile. Hell a D1/2 remaster on phone would be a blast. It was not this that people booed. It was the clear lack of care by the devs of the franchise's existing base.

    PS - even Blizz thought this was dumb back in the day with 'Happy Reaper' in 2014.
