I REALLY disagree with #3. ): Boosters be everywhere (unless XP is nerfed/removed)

And I'm not exactly sure about removing relics... Zeus relies on magic, and his biggest method of gaining magic is through relics. Hmm

I guess it's a double-edged sword.......

 

Gypsy, can we expect news on the 4th weapon soon (which I assume is this month)?

In the E3 livestream on Twitch, the Devs mentioned it'll be coming out the end of this month.

 

They mentioned the 4 new maps for this mode are smaller and the camera is closer to the action too.

 

I believe they also said while there are no fountains, both characters will slowly generate magic over time? I think that's what I heard but I'm not 100% sure... one person was playing as Ares and I believe I saw him gaining magic over time.

 

If that's the case, Zeus won't be at too much of a disadvantage... although I need to think about this a bit more. Which allegiance would miss their relics the most I wonder...
