Hell


S0_L337

To clarify, I didn't mean "normal" as in Normal/Nightmare/Hell but Normal-Normal i.e. non-ladder, non-hardcore.

They are a ladder change only, for now. Blizz wanted terror zones and sunder charms to exist in a contained space where they can watch and learn for a season before letting them out to the wider game.


S0_L337

Then why are TERROR ZONES in non-ladder? What is the point?


bakagir

For non baal run exp at 96+


S0_L337

Terror Zones provide more XP? 99% of the time Terror Zones are in an area so far below my level the XP is negligible.

Lol do you even read the patch notes?


bakagir

Tz set the monster levels 2 above your level to the cap of 96. So if you are 75 in the cold planes monsters will be 77


warcaptain

Every TZ sets the monsters level to 2+ your own (up to level 96) so the exp you get from killing a normal monster in a TZ Chaos Sanctuary is the same exp you get from killing a normal Fallen in a TZ Cold Plains, and if your level is 84 or higher, you get more exp from that Fallen in TZ Cold Plains (terrorized to level 86) than you would from a non-TZ normal monster in Chaos Sanctuary since the highest non-TZ monsters in the game are only lvl85. Make sense? After lv84 TZ monsters will always give more exp and better loot, in theory, than any non-TZ in the game. Of course you have to factor in density as well. At lv84 a non-TZ Chaos Sanctuary probably has more monsters than a TZ Cold Plains so you'll likely end up with more XP per run but as you level up past 84 it becomes more and more important to farm xp from TZ as a habit vs anywhere else (unless you're also farming for specific loot from bosses)

I didn’t even think they were. Maybe I’m just thinking of offline. Sunder charms are 100% ladder only either way, and either way it’s the same answer. Terror zones are there so you can farm other areas and get to level 99. The sunder charms didn’t even exist when terror zones were created, so it’s not like that’s their only purpose.

It increase the cap level cap of the monsters, useful if you're solo and trying to level a character or find gear but the next difficulty level is too hard etc
