wow Patch 7.3: Lesser & Greater Rifts

13 posts in this topic

Bounties a.k.a. World Quests, Kadala a.k.a. Relinquished Items vendor, new Legendary items similar to Hellfire AmuletHellfire Amulet and now, another Diablo element is making its way to World of Warcraft.

The ultimate question is how will Rifts differ from Mythic Keystone Dungeons? Solo content with affixes?

We datamined two items that will grant entry to Lesser and Greater Rifts. 

  • Depleted RiftstoneDepleted Riftstone - "Allows entry into Lesser Rifts."
    • Most likely Wow's equivalent of Diablo's Nephalem Rifts
  • Charged RiftstoneCharged Riftstone - "Allows entry into Lesser Rifts and Greater Rifts."

Depleted RiftstoneDepleted Riftstone can be upgraded (Upgrade Rift FoozleUpgrade Rift Foozle) to Charged RiftstoneCharged Riftstone, probably if you beat the timer in a Lesser Rift and vice versa, if you don't beat a Greater Rift timer, Charged RiftstoneCharged Riftstone may be downgraded into Depleted RiftstoneDepleted Riftstone.

Details surrounding the addition of Rifts are still vague, but from what Blizzard said in the dev notes for Patch 7.3, this may be somewhat related:

If you ask me, Diablo has a lot of things that should be in WoW, so I like this trend.

Why not just play D3 to run rifts by yourself?  I don't get the point of this other than turning wow into a single player game

Sure, World of Warcraft is a MMORPG, but Blizzard wants to reach out to as many players as possible and you can't blame them for that

  • You like single-player content? There's Chromie's Scenario, Withered Army Training, World Events, Mage Tower Challenge, Pet Battles and maybe the 7.3 Rifts...
  • You like playing with other players (PvE)? There are dungeons, Mythic+, raids, etc...
  • You like playing against other players (PvP)? There are Arenas, Battlegrounds, World PvP Quests...

If you don't like "X", you can do "Y" or "Z". The choice is yours to make and nobody's forcing you do do "X". There's something for everyone, even special snowflakes.

I like this, the Chromie scenario was pretty fun, if a bit too easy. Hopefully these will give a bit more of a solo challenge for when the friends list is a bit light.

You know... there's a part of me that actually wishes this was a thing...  I would love to see Diablo turned into an MMO, but I just don't see how that can happen without destroying the very fabric of what makes the game a Diablo game.  Could you imagine though being able to walk through open world content from Old Tristram to New Tristram, to West March, to the Arreat Crater and then take a boat to Kehjistan and other areas.  I mean just yeah...

Agreed.  Also I'm hoping they would give decent loot, and possibly the harder they are the better the loot.

You'd think all that salt would melt them.

Lol, would love that, but don't see it, at least in the same vein as WOW.

But as an incentive to lure Diablo players over to WoW, yeah these "rifts" look good.

I was a complete Diablo player prior to Legion, tried WoD, found it lacking in content, since Legion, been subbed, plenty to do, and more content both Single player and group content is always welcome.

For Blizz, makes sense too, I don't pay anything for Diablo (well £12.99 in 3 years............)

      Shackled Ur'zul received a new color tint ever since we looked at Patch 7.3 mounts. The mount will be a 100% drop from Mythic Argus the Unmaker until next expansion.
      The 100% drop chance of Mythic mounts is always drastically reduced when a new expansion's released and the raid becomes trivial.

      A first look at upcoming Antoran mounts from the new raid.
      Two new Antoran hounds were added in Patch 7.3 and they're sharing models with the Hounds of Sargeras boss encounter in Antorus the Burning Throne raid.
      Description
      Sargeras' own hound was maybe once a felstalker, but over the years the Dark Titan reforged and reshaped his companion into something much more powerful. When, at last, he was pleased with his creation, he set about creating more of the hounds, and imbuing them with shadow and flame.
      Antoran Charhound looks like Shatug and Antoran Gloomhound looks like Fharg.

      Images taken from our 7.3 boss models thread
      The mounts (or at least one of them) might have a low drop chance from Sargeras's dogs encounter in Antorus, just like Abyss Worm from Mistress Sass'zine.
