DIABLO III PREVIEWS THE RUINS OF SESCHERON FOR PATCH 2.3

By on 4-06-2015 in guides

In one respect, Diablo III is fairly littered with powerful treasures. That’s the core of its gameplay. You are assaulted by a rain of powerful treasures from the heavens that you then equip and use to kill more powerful foes, who drop still more powerful treasures. But the sort of mystical artifact found deep within the Ruins of Sescheron that players will be able to explore in patch 2.3… that’s a different sort of powerful treasure. That’s something that has story importance right there.

Yes, the game’s next patch is offering a new zone to players that which serves as a trip down memory lane into the ruins of the once-proud home of the barbarians. Of course, there are plenty of powerful artifacts with non-narrative importance to be found in the hands (and claws and such) of the beasts residing in the ruins, so that’s a bit of added motivation. Check out the preview trailer just below; you can try out the patch on the game’s test server now.

 

WORLD OF WARCRAFT RAIDING GUILD WIPES 472 TIMES BEFORE BEATING MYTHIC HELLFIRE RAID

How many times do you usually tolerate a full group wipe before calling it a night? Three? Four? Now imagine if your guild has endured a whopping 472 wipes — probably not on the same night, but even so — during the toughest World of Warcraft raid currently in the game. And what if, after those 472 wipes, your guild managed to down the 13th and final boss. It would be a good reason to celebrate, is what we’re saying.

Method, a top World of Warcraft raiding guild, finally announced that it had beaten the game’s new Hellfire Citadel dungeon on mythic difficulty after nearly 500 full wipes. This puts Method once again in the spot of a world first for beating WoW’s hardest endgame content.

Meanwhile, Blizzard has posted a new dev diary highlighting the Utgarde Pinnacle timewalking dungeon. This special version of the instance appears on Wrath of the Lich King weekends, scaling munchkins down to level 81 for the attempt.
