Warlords: Raid testing is here

Blizzard announced today that raid testing was to start on the Warlords beta – a sign that development is moving on with Warlords and we’ll hopefully we’ll see it soon.

Question is, how soon?

What do the numbers say?

The Legendary continues…

This is a post I should’ve written a while ago, but that real life thing got in the way…

In The black prince is watching us! I looked at the impact the Gaze of the Black Prince buff had on the gathering of secrets.

So, legendary?

Guild perks – the downside to a beta

One downside to having a rapidly changing beta is you can easily end up seeing changes without the wider context to make sense of them.

Thus it is with how guild perks are being reduced in Warlords. In the current beta build, the number of guild perks have been very much reduced. In that blog I did wonder if the dropped perks for increasing Justice Points, Honor Points and XP would end up being baked in.

@Kyplor pointed me at this blue post by WatcherDev which gave some of the context for the changes.

Warlords beta – guild perks reduced

Note: please also see Guild perks – the downside to a beta

Following on a comment I saw on twitter about guild perks being removed I quickly checked out the beta since I could actually not only log in, but also had an operational server! And whilst I had a couple of client crashes doing things like moving around and the like, I got into a guild & looked at the guild perks we’ll be having in Warlords.

Details after the cut

Warlords: the beta has begun

It is typical that as I was starting to update some graphs and writing a “Alpha continues on” post that the beta started!

… which means I get to update a gaggle of graphs and do a predictions post. But more of that later.

In the mean time I can say that I was lucky enough to be in the first wave of beta invites. And I’ve worked out my concerns in To beta or not to beta, that is the question; whilst I’ll copy my main across to have a brief poke, I’ll run the beta as horde to preserve my alliance side questing experience for live.

An important point about the beta:

THERE ARE NO BETA CODES*

If you get an email offering beta codes then just ignore it. The place to check on if you’ve got a beta or not is on Battle.Net.

But what should you expect to see?

… and with that, what can you expect to see?
