Hmm the new titles should be fun. Nice to see them being implemented hopefully. Also can't wait to form a clan/guild with my friends. So much info. Though it does confirm something I've been thinking since I saw the Gamescon footage. They are a lot further along with the xpac then they are saying. From what it looks like with this much data and the info stated previously about the servers. I am guessing they are at atleast a Alpha in house or friends and family build phase. I'd guess they are going to announce beta at Blizzcon.
From this leak elemetal damage effect Blizzard is testing are
Lightning jumps to many targets.
Fire deals periodic damage.
Arcane has a chance to charm.
Holy heals you.
The ring that boost poision damage says it double only damage of poision damage so I don't know what's poision effect.
One can only ask why this wasn't live at the launch of the game, but lets be honest it was all part of their marketing/sales plan.
first ppl went on and bought the d3 after the hype (which is i think unparalleled till this day, if talking about a game release).
if they added this what could they do to improve the game and make you buy the expansion, very little if any.
so, they are creating another hype (this time justified) and will hit again the sales record
The thread on the official forum discussing this leak has been deleted. Cease and desist incoming here?
I honestly don't know where people are getting this from. It's right there - http://us.battle.net...opic/9947394894
There was even a topic about its deletion... and it was a few posts below it. Like... what?!
edit: Fine, it might've been hidden for like 5 minutes.
I kept refreshing that thread all day, and somewhere after it reached page 11 I got the "Thread deleted" page. It wasn't just an accidental error, I tried a few times after that. I guess they changed their minds, and now they returned it.
Blizzard's PR folks must be troubled by this leak, but it's out now, they can't do anything about it, so yeah, I'd be surprised if they tried to fight it.
