Jay Wilson on PvP and Legendaries, Inferno Booster Pack Giveaway, Guide for Crafting Chest Armor, and 1,000,000 Gold Witch Docto

Jay Wilson on PvP and Legendaries
We haven't heard much from Jay Wilson in the past few weeks. However it looks like "The Jace Hall Show" was able to get a few minutes of his time. Jay Wilson first pops up around the 2:00 mark, however the pvp talk starts around 11:29. The information learned from this is not all that new, and there was very little of it. However some info is better than none. Here is a quick roundup:

(Also for those interested in PvP, we posted a quick preview of a few datamined arena levels not to long ago).
  • Due to player feedback they are upgrading legendaries.
  • They are adding a whole bunch of new loot technology so they can do some "crazy stuff" with legendaries.
  • They want to legitimize PvP in Diablo III.
  • Pvp will take place as an arena team deathmatch.
  • You can form a team of 4 players or use the match making system to be put on a team of 4.
  • Matches will be about 10 minutes long, team with the most kills wins.
  • Will be cool arena style with a lot of fast action, quick respawning, and announcer calling out kills.
A quick look at one of the UIs can be seen in the picture below. In the picture we can see a player's PvP title. During beta a full list of player titles were datamined. However the title/rank of "Scout" is not on that list.

    I'm not expecting 1.1 until October at the earliest. However the loot updates I'm hoping we see within the next month because they are probably the biggest thing this game needs right now to keep people interested until we see whats in 1.1.

    I really hope this new "loot technology" is cool new item properties that only legendaries can have. That would definitely make them wanted without having to make them best in DPS.

    No way in hell will we see 1.1 this early. My guess would be either early December or soemtime next year. If we're lucky, we get 1.04 before October but I suspect Diablo 3 patching is really on the backburner now.

    Haha, right? I was pretty good this time. However... I also got back into Magic the Gathering after 15+ years of not playing it. So yeah, my gaming hobbies got me despite that. :/

    Guarentee that's whats going to happen. How will they control Barbarians Heroic Leaping over fences etc. or their ability to use an entire rage bar to sprint for 30 seconds non-stop? Say goodbye to the most fun abilties, at least in their current forms.

    I'm wanting to know, will pvp match you up with people on similar latency? Otherwise it's pretty much going to be a battle of the pings. Will the legendary buff affect existing items?
