3.0 Beta News

In the weeks since our last post, a lot as happened. The Beta was released and it was an immediate success after getting over the starting issues. There were a lovely couple weeks of races including the cornerstone 1-week race which not many people participated it. Updates to beta were released containing magnificent new skill gems and changes to pretty much everything already existing.

Pantheon System


Grinding Gear Games recently released an official video about the Pantheon system. It goes in-depth about how it works and what some of the options that you will encounter will be. This video is a great asset to newer players or players who haven’t played beta to look at before 3.0 launch!

Second of all, Grinding Gear Games has released their Week Two beta report. This is a great thing to look into even if you don’t play beta as it will give you information on some of the upcoming nerfs in specific. This beta report was focused on fixing the power of Damage over Time with ignites and chaos damage. Second of all, this report also focused on fixing some of the new skill gems that were released recently. These skill gems can be found here. This post also talked about the release of act 8 or part 2: act 3. Last but definitely not least, GGG announced a change in the release date of Fall of Oriath. It was previously expected to be released around mid July like 2.0 which was released on July 11. This one has been confirmed to be released on Late July/Early August which probably means early August. You can find the full post here.
