Very soon, we'll begin revealing the upcoming content in our 3.21 expansion. This time around, we won't be posting balance manifestos detailing the expansion's balance changes.

Balance manifestos are great at communicating certain types of content. Whenever we want to do deep work on a particular game system, they provide a good opportunity to clearly explain the changes in a self-contained way outside of the hubbub of livestream day. They also give us longer to gather feedback about whether those systems changes are in the right direction.

Over the years, though, we've learned that there are certain types of changes that balance manifestos are less appropriate for. Often, changes require greater context that the livestream explains, or benefit from video as a form of communication. Sometimes there's just so much numerical detail that the balance manifesto ends up reading like a set of patch notes, weirdly detached from the rest of the actual patch notes that you need to understand the context and plan your builds.

3.21's balance changes are mostly of the latter type. We'll explain them on the livestream and post the full details in the patch notes on announcement day. Don't worry though, there aren't scary systems reworks that we need to solicit feedback on ages in advance. Our balance goals with 3.21 are to provide more options and more fun for as many builds as possible, rather than reworking game systems in potentially disruptive ways. While there are of course some small nerfs, 3.21 is most definitely not a nerf-fest.

We can't wait to unveil the changes in the upcoming livestream and check out what builds you create in 3.21!

How am I supposed to update my amazing Arc Inquisitor league start guide (on the forums) if you don't tell us what's nerfed :(
Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the future, and renders the present inaccessible.
