Chromie’s Sand Blast quest will be getting some balance tweaks next week to make it a little easier to complete.
During our testing, we were seeing a lot of Chromie’s finishing the quest around 10 to 15 minutes. Every once in a while, they weren’t finishing it. Which we actually think is okay, because in order for a quest completion to feel meaningful it probably needs to not be completed every once in a while (looking at Medivh).
We ended up being a little conservative with the numbers on Chromie’s quest, but I think that’s probably better than making the little artillery gnome oppressive for a few weeks. Our Balance team usually spends about 15 hours a week playtesting new content internally, and Chromie was no different, but even with that amount of testing there’s a little margin of error.
