Wrath of Heroes Progress

What's this, a post not about SWTOR?  I figured I'd switch things up a bit today and check in with Wrath of Heroes.  WoH is currently in between beta sessions, but seems to be progressing very nicely.  Let's take a look at what's been happening.

New Web Page.  The team over at BioWare Mythic improved the Wrath of Heroes web page, now it has content!  Be sure to stop by and read the latest news.  I'm very glad to see them not just using Facebook.

Progression.  During the last beta, the patch notes mentioned the addition of Mastery levels once you reach 40.  Sadly, that's all we really know about them.  In this news article, they also mention a new progression system.  I can't wait to see what it is all about.  WoH felt like it lacked depth, and this might help.

Black Fire Pass.  A new map was introduced called Black Fire Pass.  You can watch a video of it here.

New Hero.  A new Hero is on his way, his name is Tobias.

Gold.  There is now an in-game currency!  This opens up a lot of possibilities and means we will likely be able to buy some things without using real money.

Reward Spinner.  Another new feature is the Reward Spinner.  When a match is over, you play a slot machine to determine your reward. How many spinners you unlock depends on your performance.

No news on when the next beta is, but I am looking forward to checking it out.  Each session makes large strides from the one before it.
