We know you’ve missed him but Ghostcrawler, aka lead systems designer Greg Street, has returned with another game mechanic opus. This week, the Great Crab’s essay, via the World of Warcraft community site, is entitled (rather unimaginatively) ”Luck of the Draw Buff“.
The essay explains how the Luck of the Draw buff appears when you use the Dungeon Finder to pug a dungeon and how, with patch 4.0.6, the devs are planning to increase this buff to 5% damage, healing, and health per random player, up to a maximum of 15%. Given the chaos/stress associated with pugs, it’s a really nice gesture from GC. Oh, and in case you were wondering, this week’s byline tells us he was apparently attacked by a kind of racoon-bear called a coati (I had to look this up, Wikipedia FTW) as a crablet.
