You go away for a few days and find that the forums have exploded with righteous indignation – Wrath of Heroes – so this was what all the NDA rhubarb was about.
I’m sure you’ll all know about it by now – it was announced in the Producer’s Letter last week – http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/232/index/8125438/1#8125438
along with some other titbits –
Mythic seems to be going out of its way to convince us that WAR is in safe hands and has a long-term future – I’ve no doubt that it has but it’ll take a lot of convincing some players that the resources taken on for Wrath of Heroes may have been better spent providing new content for WAR.
On the plus side it looks like WAR subscribers will get some extra goodies to play WoH with.
There’s a new armour set coming out but no details of how it will be made available – I seem to remember reading that they will be merely cosmetic.
Patch 1.4.4 is on its way with changes to RvR, scenario queues and some classes.
Grovod Cavern scenario is returning in patch 1.4.5 along with other scenarios and the return of the Fortresses.
I haven’t had time to go through the forums properly but a cursory glance indicates that the usual stormcrows and malcontents have gathered together.
Ah well – I’m looking forward to getting back into the game tonight – now where did I leave off?
Is wrath a new collective noun or are all the heroes wrathful?
