Much of the tier gear sets in yesterday's alpha build had bonuses attached to them for the first time. This is great news for the development of the game, and shows that Blizzard is moving steadily along. However, as many noticed, the bonuses were rather run of the mill and not anything super special.
People also started to complain about thoughts on balance and other problems the bonuses will create. Now besides the fact that kind of feedback without testing is putting the cart before the horse, there also is the matter that this is the alpha and things change all the time. Celestalon made this crystal clear in his tweet last night, explaining that most of these are just placeholders for the real thing to come. And those real set bonuses? They'll be "creative."
I'm personally looking forward to this creativity!
Also, a note regarding set bonuses getting datamined. Most of those are temporary while we make more 'creative' ones.- Celestalon (@Celestalon) June 11, 2014
