  1. I’m just hoping one of the things we will be able to buy with Comet Shards will be new Hero Skins. I would love to have a legitimate way to purchase the Musketeer, having missed the Kickstarter that has long-since passed.

  2. After the new DLC was revealed I quickly looked up and read The Color Out of Space. Now the hype is even bigger. Looks like we have alot of maddening new undertakings to look forward to, for better or worse (I can already see my most prepared and sturdy hero dying heads first).
    The only thing I’d humbly request is some sane balance to begin with, so we don’t end up with was the initial Crimson Court, where every hero was getting infected and dying without any opportunity to salvage the situation (thankfully this mechanic was added later, but until that point the DLC felt really trite).
