WGN #12: The Golden rules for Guild Wars 2 and LoL's Jayce patch

posted 3 Jul 2012, 10:52 by Wipus Frequentus
Welcome to the next installment of the WGN, episode 12. We will take a quick look at D3, SWTOR, GW2 and LoL.


We'll start with Diablo 3 today. Everyone probably knows there has been a hotfix to increase the droprate of rare items. You can read the exact percentages in this blue post. You can of course increase your chance to get drops by stacking magic find gear. Blizzard is afraid that this forces people to change into their "magic find gear set" just before the killing blow. This takes quite a bit of time, fills your bags and isn't fun, according to Blizzard. In a blog post they describe 5 possible solutions to this issue and ask for our feedback.


There has been another small update to the SWTOR client. Today's patch has been mostly groupfinder related fixes and updates, but one other improvement stood out: "Implemented optimizations that improve performance in the Black Hole area on Corellia for many players.".


ArenaNet published an article giving an insight to their development process and the rules they try to follow. In this publication they describe some of the design principles they use to craft the world of Tyria. It doesn't go into too much detail but it gives a glimpse of some of their thought processes.

We all know that on August 25th the gates of Tyria open for people that pre-purchased the game. What time the gates will open exactly is still a mystery though. According to a redditor that asked the support team of ArenaNet the time hasn't been decided upon yet.


Riot Games, the creator of League of Legends, released a youtube video with a sneak peak at the changes coming in the near future. The next patch called Jayce, after a new to be released champion, will contain buffs for at least 3 heroes, Oriana, Nunu and Leblanc and will contain a nerf to global ultimates.
