    Kind of got buried, but Wizards of the Coast interviewed Rob Overmeyer in their last podcast, and he revealed a few details about Module 4.

    I'll guess a couple of things:

    -Warlock class
    -Bosses like Fulminorax, except they are adds now(and probably smaller)
    -Hence not as many add spam as before, more elite adds
    -T3 armour
    -Probably requires professions to craft
    -Warlock is the new OP character now
    -Still no guardian fighter fix

    I wish they'd tease us with a big feature but its 7 weeks apart. They have lots of time and a better momentum in the coming weeks so I wouldn't complain about it right now for the sake of complaining.

    ok, to remind every1 this is a statement from the official module 4 feedback thread
    As has been said many times in this very thread, Cryptic had very little to do with the release timing for this particular module. The release date is being pushed by WotC and Hasbro. It is likely that Cryptic had to work on 3 and 4 simultaneously to meet this requirement.

    Besides that, i think it is vital for the game community to know what is going to happen so people can prepare. Are there going to be mayor changes to any class? What new class/builds will be possible? What changes will impact the economy? Those are things people need to know BEFORE those changes will happen. And not only 1 or 2 weeks before.

    Maybe WOC wants an embargo placed on some of the details.

    Besides, if you truly are hardcore enough to care about min-maxing around these changes, 2 weeks is plenty of time. Otherwise, you are complaining just for the sake of complaining.

    In Beta Warlock Armor was dropping. It said specifically Warlock. So there was people who was thinking that the Warlock class should have been released already if the armor was dropping in Beta. Yet here we are close to module 4 and no Warlock. The Warlock class is designed if they designed armor for it back in beta. They are just fine tuning it I am sure. Would not make any since to design the armor and stats on the armor and weights if the class was not already designed.

    In those threads you find proof of Warlock Armor dropping in beta. I saw it myself. Before they removed the class name.

    I wonder if Adimond Kroskas will be one of the "bosses". He's been languishing in a Dread Spire cell spouting off on his plans re: Cult of the Dragon.

    I am relatively certain that there have been no official statements beyond a possible generic, "we'd like to".

    We get stuff when we get stuff. Cryptic/PWE/WotC get to decide when they're going to tell us what we'll be getting and when.

    If they don't promise much far in advance, then they have no worries about not being able to deliver.

    Ok, so there is no official word about 1 class/year, right? Because this rate is quite frustrating. This also means we can get more than one class being released with a module in the future. Or perhaps... now? Juts kiding. At this point I have doubts they will release any class with module 4.

    Yeah they certainly got to some point in designing Warlock but we have no idea where it's ended up. If it doesn't show up for this module I'll pretty much consider it scrapped (could it really have been that bad?).

    I didn't actually want to complain, just sharing some information and my thoughts on the topic. Although I FEEL that there is a general lack of communication between Devs/Community managers and the players which leads to people missing out on information. Also sometimes i have the impression information is not clear enough. Just an example: The requirements for accessing the Mod 3 content were very unclear to a lot of people when it was released, yes it was given some time beforehand but obviously many people missed out on it or did not understand what exactly they had to do. I think people shouldn't have to browse forums and search for basic/essential information on new content etc. thats what the news section on the launcher is for.

    This doesnt mean that the information given / communication is generally BAD - but i think it can be IMPROVED.

    I'm surprised we've gotten a release date for M4...

    Lack of information? This is more information far sooner than we've ever had it before. :p

    Also, keep one thing in mind: Cryptic pretty much got their job cut out for them by the license owner. I kinda suppose that, if PWE had any chance to decide, we would get Mod4 near the end of the year at most, but Wizards of the Coast pretty much went 'Module 4, August, Make it so.'.

    I think the information currently given is fine and doesn't necessarily need to be improved in the meantime.

    And your opinion regarding the matter is a form complaint. Since when are opinions and complaints mutually exclusive?

    The requirements for module 3 could've been given 2 weeks in advance, but we are 6 weeks away from module 4.
