The Morr the Merrier

Wrath of Heroes is launching a new patch today, which contains a number of new features.  This includes a new map:  the Garden of Morr.  When I was down at the Mythic HQ recently, I was able to check it out.  I liked what I saw, and am looking forward to playing it today.

Garden of Morr.  This is a cross between the Arena and WAR's Mourkain Temple.  You gain points by killing your enemies, but there is a bobble you can get which grants more points.  It is no ordinary bobble, as it transforms the player into a Skeletal Standard-Bearer who has its own set of abilities.

Practice Mode.  Now you can mess around with heroes and your builds without playing a real match.  Sounds like a neat addition.

Rydion.  Oh yeah, they are also adding a new hero in this patch, Rydion the Archmage.   Another dress wearing Elf, bah!  Need more Dwarves.

Perk Balancing.  The WoH team went through a lot of the perks and made them a bit more balanced.  Some, like Power Unbound, are a bit less potent.  Others, like Lil' Helper, have had their requirements decreased.  This is a pretty important change, as Perks have been controversial.
