The Gamescom Reaper of Souls interviews keep on coming and Josh Mosqueira sat down with KingKongerTV to discuss numerous topics. Quite a few questions were asked including whether they plan on improving their chat channels, and although no details are dished out, there will be some news on these features at BlizzCon.
Followers are also touched on with Josh mentioned special follower side quests which will reveal more about their characters. As for PvP , well we’ll have to wait for that “awesome day” when some sort real PvP is announced. The idea of sockets being added by you to your gear is also asked but the Mystic is how they want to address the issue of changing affixes on gear.
The “complex issue” of the auction house is raised and Josh says that they feel the original intent of auction house is “really valid” and that trading is a key aspect of the game, and like it or not, there’s a portion of the player base that “attribute real world value to the items”.
Josh goes on to say that real money trading has to be done in a “safe and secure manner” and without the auction house “in the territories where there is no RMAH , the account compromises are out whack with the rest of the world”. However they do realise it’s a problem hence the whole Loot 2.0 changes to make the game fun and rewarding.
The team are still tweaking the Paragon levelling curve and more will come at BlizzCon . Watch the video for more…
