Wow Virtual Realms

Grace also expands on a topic from last week – Flex Raiding. With further

information emerging on how this new approach will work, including additional rewards

for more seasoned raiders, Grace shares her reasons why this could end up being less

flexible.

Two topics get the Talk Azeroth treatment this week, the first one being Virtual

Realms. With this new feature arriving in patch 5.4, Olivia Grace takes a look at how

it could impact all realms, from the quiet corners of PvE to the giant realms of PvP.

She also discusses how it might affect auction houses and other in-game services that

we currently take for granted.

Wow Security Warning

We will keep you updated on ZAM and Wowhead if more news arises from these hacking

attempts. Otherwise be sure to go through the necessary steps to keep your account

safe!

While it is still unclear whether these are targeted hacking attempts against

Blizzard, or if the unauthorized intruders are trying to “brute-force” accounts,

Blizzard is taking steps to fix the issues and will be sending out emails to those

accounts that show signs of unauthorized log-in attempts.

“We’re in the process of notifying any account holders who were not using an

authenticator and whose account showed signs of unauthorized access (e.g., logging in

from an unusual IP address). If you are among this group, you will receive an email

describing how to reset your account.”

As a result of these hacking attempts, access to the World of Warcraft auction house

from the mobile app has been suspended temporarily, but all in-game items and gold

will be replaced for those accounts that were impacted by the breach of security.

Blizzard also urges you to take any extra precautions you can to protect your account

and computer from unauthorized access, such as updating your password frequently and

following the security tips available on the Blizzard support website.

As reported by the inimitable Perculia on Wowhead, Blizzard Entertainment has

recently announced that there has been an increase in unauthorized World of Warcraft

account-logins. These unauthorized log-in attempts are originating from its main

website as well as the World of Warcraft Mobile Armory smart phone app.

Wow Talk Azeroth 4

The new system, she asserts, provides a fairer look at arena matches, likening them

to boxing. The pugilistic simile continues as Olivia discusses how the current

approach is like demanding a TKO to win any boxing match, while technical victories

are completely absent.

This week Olivia Grace takes a look at the proposed changes to World of Warcraft’s

arena tie-break system. She starts off with a look at where we’re at right now,

explaining what’s currently on offer, before running viewers through the new tie-

break system.

Olivia then dives head-first into the potential issues with functionality old and

new, while also examining why Blizzard decided to shift away from the old system in

the first place.

However, there is a downside in the way the system changes the psychology of the

arena, as players can look to play the system rather than play the game.

TERA game guide

In the gallery,Sirjuka Gallery is the natural progression from Temple of Temerity in terms of master glyphs. The dungeon offers five unique glyphs for each class that are unobtainable from the Temple of Temerity. Sirjuka Gallery has no immediate cooldown; instead it has a limit of three entries per day, six if you’re an elite member, and instance reset scrolls can be used to reset your daily cap if you choose to have a field day with the dungeon.

The overall goal of the dungeon is to protect the crystals on all three platforms; bonus points are awarded for completing objectives in certain ways and within time limits or constraints. The crystals in the center of each platform generate constant aggro on the various mobs and BAMs that spawn, and some of these enemies can be pulled and unaggroed from the crystal while others cannot. More often then not, it’s the latter.

For damage classes, it is recommended to get your damage up before going into this dungeon as a party (weapon at least agnitor +9 with rerolled stats). A good estimate might be that you can solo the second boss of Temple of Temerity without any trouble; you probably have enough damage at that point.

Then again, you should already be skilled at Temple of Temerity at this point since many of the glyphs there will up your damage output considerably.

In other words, it is highly recommended that you don’t instance match for Sirjuka Gallery until you’ve gotten a few of the glyphs you need from Temple of Temerity. It is a faster dungeon to farm, and the badges can be gotten cheaply. This also applies to tanks and healers, as there are many great aggro and support glyphs you can snag from there.

There’s already a great guide for that dungeon by Espei that you can read here. However, any level 60 can solo-grind this dungeon for the minimum rewards each time, so if you have nothing to do, you may want to consider doing this (more on this later, most of this guide will assume you are running with a party).

Note that while you’re inside doing the dungeon, it is important to wait until your entire party is ready after finishing a platform before heading off to the next, as the platforms seal off behind you as you progress forward, locking anybody who might have been too slow in the previous area.

For the same reason, do not resurrect in town if you die, as you will not be able to get back to your party should you return and reenter the dungeon.

Like Temple of Temerity, depending on how well your group did upon dungeon completion you’ll have a chance to get two sets of currency items that you can put towards buying your Sirjuka Gallery master glyphs, Silver Talents and Gold Talents (more on that at the end of the guide, no point in worrying about loot if you can’t even complete the dungeon).

If you’re short on time, and/or regard PUGs with extreme aversion, you can “solo” the gallery for the minimum reward every run you do so as mentioned before. To find out how to do that, see the end of the guide or click the relevant link in the Table of Contents.

Wow Siege of Orgrimmar Maps

The latest PTR Build of Patch 5.4 has added the maps for the Siege of Orgrimmar raid

instance.

The raid entrance is located in Valley of Eternal Blossoms (as already mentioned in

an earliier article).


The raid is split up into four parts:

I.Vale of Eternal Sorrows: Venture through the scarred Vale of Eternal Blossoms,

exploring unearthed mogu ruins to discover the source of the destruction.

II.Gates of Retribution: War has come to the gates of Orgrimmar, as Alliance forces

and the Darkspear Rebellion seek revenge against Garrosh Hellscream.

III.The Underhold: Within a secret Kor’kron base carved into the sweltering caverns

beneath Orgrimmar, Garrosh is assembling his ultimate army.

IV. Downfall: Wielding the dark power that lay dormant beneath Pandaria, Garrosh

seeks to bring a new order to Azeroth. He must be stopped!

Wow Blizzard Issues an Account Security Warning

Following the Mobile Armory Hack Announcement three days ago, Blizzard has issued an

official announcement about the current situation, prompting users to change their

Battle.net passwords as soon as possible. It is still unknown, when the Remote

Auction House will be online again, because we still have no information about it.

Some users are growing discontent, because they can’t use their smartphone to access

the Remote Auction House. To sum up, affected accounts will be locked and notified

via mail about the restoration process, players, who lost gold due to this glitch,

will have their gold and/or items reinstated by the Game Masters.

As a result of these activities, access to the World of Warcraft auction house via

the mobile app has been taken off-line temporarily. Upon request, our customer

support team will restore in-game items and gold for any accounts impacted.

There’s been a recent increase in unauthorised World of Warcraft account-loggins via

our website and the World of Warcraft mobile armoury app. We’re in the process of

notifying any account holders who were not using an authenticator and whose account

showed signs of unauthorised access (e.g., logging in from an unusual IP address).

If you are among this group, you will receive an email describing how to reset your

account.

While no means of account security is guaranteed, every precaution you take to

secure your computer and your account – including changing your password

periodically – adds another defensive barrier. We strongly encourage everyone to

take a few moments to read through the security tips  available on our support

website.

SMS Protect is so far the most potent protection your account. Authenticators

(physical or virtual) can be easily cracked and having no authenticator is annoying

as well, because once you login from a different IP than usual, your account will

constantly get locked for security reasons, in your usual login pattern.

Celestials of Pandaria, loot creatures and caches to earn Timeless Coin in order to

Obviously, he says that he has no further rewards to offer. Dave Kosak though,

mentioned on his Twitter that there will be a legendary before we kill Garrosh.
Rewards
With further cloak augmentation, Blizzard has updated the cloak models even further.

Here’s a screenshot of all the cloaks. Above you see the new cloaks that have been

augmented, once you bring your legendary quest line to an end, down there are the

old ones that have not been altered yet. The old cloaks were itemlevel 600, with an

upgrade possibility of 8 levels, thus 608 max. The legendary cloaks will obviously

have a higher item level.

Blizzard CEO Addresses The Diablo 3

It’s been a bumpy road for Diablo 3 so far in spite of its successful launch, and Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime took a moment today to address the game’s fan community with a lengthy message posted on the Battle.net forums. He comments on roughly every chapter so far in the ongoing Diablo 3 story, from the post-launch issues with error messages to the rationale behind the real-money auction house to the planned changes in future updates.
Diablo 3 Preview - New Traits System, Revamped Runes, Skill Shuffle, and the Talisman!
There are a few noteworthy items of interest here. Morhaime mentions the upcoming patch v1.0.4, which will add “new and improved Legendary items” that he describes as “more interesting, more powerful, and more epic in ways you probably won’t be expecting.” Improvements to social interactions and the auction house are also promised for patch v1.1, as well as the recently teased plans for a more elaborate set of goals to reach for in the endgame.

Interestingly, Morhaime completely ignores the recent rash of bannings related to some players’ use of Linux/Wine to run Diablo 3. Blizzard claims that the bannings all stem from verified incidents of cheating, but a sizable portion of the fan community (or a vocal one, at any rate) has stepped up to insist that Blizzard’s testing process produces false positives.

Given how deeply Morhaime’s post dives into the various post-launch talking points for Diablo 3, the absence of any discussion of the recent bannings is surprising. That absence also could be read as a message in and of itself: Blizzard’s anti-cheating protocols are sacred, and the notification email sent out with each banning is, as it says, the final word on the matter.

The non-address of the issue in Morhaime’s post is definitely at odds with the studio’s “Every Voice Matters” philosophy that he lays out at the start. It’ll be interesting to see how the community responds to that and the rest of Morhaime’s statements in the coming days.

Diablo III White Items the handle

Since Diablo III has released more than one year, there are lots of players have experienced different professions from beginnings. We still remembered the first time I got the items when I killed the monster. As for now, the white items play a decreasing role in the game. There is no body would pick it up and the numerous white items bother us to pick up other ones. Unfortunately, white items are junks in Diablo III now. Meanwhile, the destiny of blue items is same to the while items which are junks either.
Blizzard Officially Delays Diablo 3 Live Auction Money House
To add the unique properties. If Blizzard would be add the new unique properties would better to incentive players pick up white items. We can image that a white items have six attributes is wonderful. In addition, to make the Normal Items is the essential factor in crafted system would make players pay more attention. Meanwhile, this would easily create a new dynamic for items hunting and add more to crafting.

To decrease the White Item drops and increase the Rare Items. In Diablo III, to balance the items is the permanent topic. As for most high level players, the function of most rare items is disintegrated by Black Smith. To craft the new shoulders, rings and gloves need numerous decomposers. So, why not decrease the useless White items and increase the rare items drop? As you know, the huge white items clutter the screen is boring.

To make White Items useful. Since Blizzard sets the White Items in the game, why not make it play role in the system? If we can’t use whites and blues for anything, then why can’t we get a setting to disable them? We hope to see the developer would make the system more reasonable and interesting.

To add the unique properties. If Blizzard would be add the new unique properties would better to incentive players pick up white items.

Diablo 3 Barbarian The Popular Armors and Property

Since 1.0.4 patch release, Barbarian is the most popular character choice for most players. I believed that everybody would have a barbarian hero, but how to equip Barbarian more efficiency with low cost-effective? We have summarized some popular armors and necessary properties for Barbarian green hand.
Diablo 3 Re-

In the Diablo 3 Auction House, the Rare Pants which has high vitality and empty sockets would have high price. As for the rare pants, it is relatively cost-effective than the legendary pants. Of course, the rare pants which have considerable attributes just like the 100-200 strength or 200-300 vitality would bid high price. If this rare pant has the Pickup radius would be more exicited! Usually, we choose LACUNI PROWLERS to match with rare pants. Most of the cases, we wouldn’t choose the Vitality + Intelligence or Dexterity, although this combination would gain beneficial than singe vitality, the strength would be limited. There is no need to give the primary attribute for the dexterity.

The strongest DPS Belt is the WITCHING HOUR. As for my personal viewed, that Immortal King’s Tribal Binding can’t compare with WITCHING HOUR alone. If you arm with Skorn that should better choose WITCHING HOUR. While, if you arm with 2-hand weapon and Echoing Fury you’d better equip Immortal waist. Some player always wonder about 10% critical hit damage would increase how much damage? 1% decrease damage from elites equals to how much all resistance? While, different players have different attribute, we should make more practice!

First, we would like to introduce the TYRAEL’S MIGHT. The essential attribute of Damage to Demons is the most important! Then, strength and increase damage against elites is the second you should pay attention. How to choose excellent items with less money? You should in accord with the attribute ranking to choose the ideal item. As players always saying goes, the high-end players can arm with top TYRAEL. When the vitality and armor lost, the attribute of damage to demon becomes very important. In addition, the 12% movement speed increased would make up the boots which without movement speed increased. And the damage against elites increases is attractive.
