[Featured] WHAT WOULD DKMR DO? #14

by Team [DKMR] on

Team DKMR: Twitter | Website | ForumsSponsored by: Gunnar - 2P - Waypoint Written by Varranis Welcome to this week’s “What Would DKMR Do?” Each week we’ll present an in-game situation and discuss the possible lines of play. Here’s the scenario for this week: We’re already at 10 mana, but being a Priest mirror, barely any damage has been dealt! We have the upper hand in card advantage, but are down on board. What do we do? Galurin said: I’d argus my two creatures, crash my zombie into his and my priestess into his dark cultist and then northshire to heal my cabal priestess. This play would put us slightly ahead on board and far ahead on cards, but leave our opponent with a very threatening 4/8 Blademaster. Fortunately our hand has the necessary tools to deal with the angry orc on the following turn. Eldorian and SkarnSW agreed that they would: Play Northshire Cleric, Defender in between Cabal and ...

The pirates have all gone home, drunk and tired from the party that was Ranked Play Season Six. As the weather turns to crisper temperatures, the ghouls are beginning to make their chilling presence known. No, we’ve already felt the cold touch of the Icecrown a few seasons ago. Season Seven is being commemorated with the Hallow’s End cardback! This beautiful purple and orange decoration can be yours through the standard fare of getting to Rank 20 during the month of October in Ranked Play. Read on below for the official announcement from Community Manager Zeriyah: The seventh official Hearthstone Ranked Play Season is now live—and we’re unveiling a new card back you can add to your collection! Beware! Wisps, wraiths, and ghastly ghosts alike can float up the Ranked Play ladder to earn the hauntingly beautiful Hallow’s End* card back! You can only earn this card back by playing Hearthstone during ...

Blizzard has just announced that instead of taking place on the BlizzCon floor, the WCS Global Finals will be happening at the other end of the Anaheim Convention Center complex in the Arena. BlizzCon attendees will have access to the event along with the rest of the convention activities, but Blizzard will also be selling tickets specifically for the WCS event alone, allowing even more folks to get in the door for the excitement of the WCS. Read the full post below. The year’s biggest StarCraft® II eSports event just got even bigger! The conclusion of the SC2 World Championship Series Global Finals takes place November 7 and 8 during BlizzCon, and this year, we’re moving the action from the BlizzCon floor to the Anaheim Convention Center Arena. Along with this Arena upgrade comes extra seating capacity, allowing us to offer the StarCraft II community another opportunity to be part ...

 

PVP Season 15 Wrapping Up Soon

by Crow on

The Community Team has offered fair warning that the last PVP season for the expansion is about to finish. And since the end of the PVP season would logically coincide with the release of the Warlords systems patch 6.0.2, that means that when the season is over, we can expect the patch to drop almost immediately. At this point, expect 6.0.2 to drop no earlier than October 14th, and given the expansion’s release date and the typical 3-4 week period between systems patch and expansion release, it’s not likely to be later than the 21st. Read the full post below and get your PVP business sorted, kids. The new game is coming. After many grueling bouts in the Arenas and Battlegrounds, the time has nearly come to see who will reign supreme in this action-packed PvP season. Prepare to fight your last battles, and remember—to the victors go the spoils! Arena ...

by DannieRay23 on

As a limited time offer, Blizzard is offering both the base Diablo 3 game and its Reaper of Souls expansion set at a 50% discount.

But hurry up, you only got until Monday, October 6 at 11:59 p.m. PDT. Sadly, this offer does not extend to the console version....

Death’s Bargain…one of the coolest useless items in Diablo 3. You only need to take a look at it’s unique legendary ability to understand how cool the concept is, and how the same item would lack any kind of practical application. “Gain an aura of death that deals 750–1000% of your Life per Second  as Physical damage to enemies within 16 yards. You no longer regenerate Life.” Why is it a cool design concept? Death’s Bargain takes your Life per Second (LPS), and turns it into a completely different stat. It gives you something unique which has the potential to open the possibility for very different builds. The mechanics on Death Bargain’s are interesting enough to make the item at the very least the core of some niche builds, but why isn’t the item seeing play? Well, it’s all about the numbers. Death’s Bargain is just one item, so it ...

 

Exploring Draenor delves into the hidden places of the world that will one day become Outland. From the volcanic landscape of Frostfire to the gloomy dells of Shadowmoon, these articles are your guide to events that are off the beaten path. Location: Gorgrond, east of Evermorn Springs Task: Kill and collect Rewards: 63g Gorgrond is a savage zone in a savage land. The overarching theme is the combat between Draenor’s plant elementals and the stony ancestors of the ogres. You’ll find evidence of this clash everywhere: Horde players will witness a titanic Magnaron, Tog the Earthrender, fighting a massive plant elemental, Ula, after their introductory quests. Another example is, of course, the Ruins of the First Bastion. The Ruins are one of Gorgrond’s many bonus objectives. Presumably the remains of the ogres’ first attempt to settle Gorgrond, it is a crumbling fort that has been subsumed by the flora of the ...

Blizzard has announced that the upcoming account data wipe on the Technical Alpha for Heroes of the Storm will be the final data wipe (including purchases, matchmaking rating, etc.) before the game enters its next testing phase, which will eventually transition to the live game servers. This is in line with the release methodology they used for Hearthstone in 2013-2014. The server move will bring Heroes on to the Battle.net production servers, which means that players on other Blizzard properties will be able to see and interact with their friends who are playing Heroes of the Storm. Significantly more invites into the game’s testing phase are expected as part of this move. Finally, the upcoming patch will include new features, including custom games and replays. The complete update from Blizzard follows: If you’re currently in the Technical Alpha, we hope you’re enjoying a week where all Heroes are available in ...

It’s been 7 years since Blizzard has been working on their next gen MMO. It’s been a few years since we found out the codename was Titan and roughly a year since Blizzard hit the reset button on it. Now, according to Mike Morhaime and Chris Metzen in a Polygon interview, Titan has been officially cancelled. Speaking to Polygon, Blizzard co-founder and CEO Mike Morhaime reiterated that the company has technically never officially announced Titan, though it hasn’t been shy to talk about the game over the past seven years. “We had created World of Warcraft, and we felt really confident that we knew how to make MMOs,” Morhaime said. “So we set out to make the most ambitious thing that you could possibly imagine. And it didn’t come together. “We didn’t find the fun,” Morhaime continued. “We didn’t find the passion. We talked about how we put it through ...
