Storm Spirit has a graphical update (so long, fatty).

DireTide will be from November 14th to November 28th.

There is a new crafting system to help get rid of unwanted or duplicate items. They are also adding socketing for adding unique effects to items and couriers.

I would love to see a more in-depth analysis of the update. I missed out on DireTide last year, and am really interested to see what all the hubbub was about. The new heroes look great and Earth Spirit looks like a hero that will be added to a lot of "not for noobs" lists.

Aww, Storm Spirit used to remind me of the mayor from Nightmare Before Christmas.

New heroes look interesting. Kinda shitty for those videos to show them get killed to segue into their own Sven armor.

I liked the silly fat model. :(

His cockiness worked nicely with his plumpness.

The problem with that old model is that they couldn't sell equipment for it. :)

I am indifferent to the model change where I'd be more disturbed if they changed the dialog.
