Blizzard ha ufficialmente rilasciato l’anteprima di tutti i bilanciamenti in arrivo per Torghast…una serie di modifiche che andranno a rendere l’esperienza in questo originale contenuto di Shadowlands sicuramente più facile e meno “stressante” per i giocatori più casual.

In linea generale, il Game Director di World of Warcraft Ion Hazzikostas ha spiegato in un’intervista al celebre sito Polygon che le intenzioni di Blizzard per Torghast sono, nell’ordine:

  • Ridurre la durata media di una run
  • Rendere il tutto ancor più divertente
  • Assicurarsi che i poteri utilizzabili su Torghast siano unici e divertenti
  • Far si che sia chiaro per ogni giocatore quanto sarà difficile ogni livello e quando dovrebbero avere l’equipaggiamento giusto per poterlo provare

Durante la notte a cavallo tra il 17 ed il 18 Dicembre sono per l’appunto stati pubblicati anche degli interventi di bilanciamento molto importanti, che andranno sicuramente a cambiare l’esperienza di gioco in tantissimi suoi dettagli.

Con questa nuova tornata di bilanciamenti, solo per fare un esempio, assistiamo al nerf del 6% alla vita ed ai danni di TUTTE le creature presenti nel primo layer di Torghast, o anche al nerf al boss Goxul the Devourer che perde il 10% della sua vita e dei suoi danni, oltre al fatto che il tempo tra il cast di un Mass Devour e l’altro è stato alzato da 18 a 36 secondi.

Ecco tutti i dettagli:

Nerf in arrivo per Torghast – Note della patch

Torghast, Tower of the Damned

  • Health and damage of all creatures in Torghast reduced by 6% at Layer 1, increasing to 26% at Layer 8.
    • Developers’ note: The net effect should be that Layer 8 is now roughly as difficult as Layer 6 was prior to this change, with other Layers’ difficulty is reduced proportionally.
  • Health of all creatures reduced for players in groups by up to 25%.
  • Damage of all creatures reduced for 4- and 5-player groups by up to 20%.
  • When the Empowered enemy at the end of a floor is a spellcaster, they should now have a longer delay between their basic magic damage spells.
    • Developers’ note: The goal of this change is to make powerful spellcasters less punishing for specializations that lack a frequent interrupt.
  • For all classes, major cooldowns will now reset when you transition to a new floor.
    • Developers’ note: This functionality should mirror the way cooldowns reset at the end of a raid encounter, or when starting a Mythic Keystone dungeon, affecting most abilities with a cooldown of 3 minutes or longer.
  • Anima Powers/Cells
    • The starting Anima Cell in Torghast now offers a stronger selection of Anima powers.
    • Anima Cells dropped by rare creatures within Torghast now always have at least 3 choices to choose from.

    • Deadsoul Chorus’s Death Blast now reduces healing received by 15% and stacks 5 times (was 25% and stacks 4 times).
    • Skeletal Remains and Lumbering Creation’s Bone Shrapnel now marks the ground and then explodes after 2 seconds, giving players time to move away (was instant).
    • Deadsoul Stalker now fades away after 15 melee attacks (was 7) and remains hidden for 15 seconds (was 30 seconds).
    • Deadsoul Devil now reincarnates with 15% health remaining (was at 40% health).
  • Bosses
    • Elder Longbranch’s Bounty of the Forest cast time increased to 4 seconds (was 2 seconds), time between casts increased to 45 seconds (was 30 seconds), and Hardened Shell now only requires 6 attacks or skills to remove (was 9 attacks).
    • Decayspeaker’s Hardened Shell now only requires 6 attacks or skills to remove (was 9 attacks).
    • Goxul the Devourer’s Health and damage decreased by 10%, and time between casts of Mass Devour increased to 36 seconds (was 18 seconds).
  • Torments and Upper Reaches
    • Fracturing Forces and Eye of Skoldus enemies’ health and damage reduced by 50%, now increase assassin health by 5% per stack (was 10%).
    • Fracturing Forces and Eye of Skoldus enemies will no longer ambush players who have recently been in combat.
