Heirloom Item Level Change

by pallimmanis on

In an effort to further improve the effectiveness of Heirloom items after the release of patch 6.1, Crithto announced that after the maintenance today a hotfix will be implemented which will increase the item level of all heirlooms from levels 91-100. There will still be some items which have better stats, but that should occur less frequently than it did before today’s fix. The original post is provided below along with a link to the thread to follow for any further updates or for questions you may have about the upgrade....

 

Transmog Tuesday #3

by Lt. Lunatic on

It’s round three of Transmog Tuesday, where we take a look at the best looking Nephalem submitted by YOU, showcase them for the world to see, and figure out what makes them tick. If you’re going to slay demons, shouldn’t you look good doing it? In spite of Season 2 ending this coming Sunday, our readers have not shown any signs of slowing down their beautiful transmog creations. Last week we featured Lala’s agile Monk. This week, a new class is once again brought to the table. In this submission, SabreWolfy shows off just how great he can make the seasonal transmog gear look with his Barbarian, which he likes to call “The Grim Conqueror.” The helm and shoulders come from the transmog options granted in Season 1, while the legs and feet are granted in the current Season 2. To switch up the transmog game, he finds a great use of utilizing multiple dye ...

Episode 70: Is the Sky Falling? WoW Tokens and More We had a bit of a microphone malfunction during recording that wasn’t noticed until post production.

Chances are every MMO veteran has been in this situation: You’ve sat in a queue for close to an hour, the dungeon is going ok but not great, and suddenly someone leaves. Maybe they drop some biting words about “noobs” and might recommend that you uninstall the game. Alternatively, maybe you’ve done that from time to time! That’s ok, we’re not here to judge. What we’re here to do this week is give some tips on how to make sure those dungeons get to completion and if not, at least make the disbanding a little less hostile and more productive for everyone. Plan in Advance By this I don’t mean to bring all of the necessary potions and meals for end-game content. Sure those are nice but not really necessary for the most accessible dungeons. By planning in advance I’m referring to making sure you have the time available to actually ...

 

Hidden Easter Eggs: Harrison Jones

by JR Cook on

Did you know that Harrison Jones has been hanging out in the Nexus lately? He’s a bit hidden but you can find him lurking on the Sky Temple and Tomb of the Spider Queen maps. In fact, if you find him and win the game, he’ll come celebrate with you at your opponents core. Last night, the Heroes Powerhour crew was playing with Alebeard from AlebeardTV on Twitch and he showed us how to find Harrison Jones. There is a little cylinder right below the boss with a cover on it. If you click it enough it will break the cover and Harrison Jones will pop out. He’ll then hop on a magic carpet and zoom away being chased by what looks like a large spider. It’s quite likely the Tomb of the Spider Queen resides right underneath Sky Temple. The next easter egg takes place on Sky Temple. On ...

Legacy of the Void Beta Hype

Episode 69: Legacy of the Void Beta Hype Articles Discussed PVP Damage Reduction Hotfix Reverted BRF Item Level Increase Season 2 Ending Legacy of the Void Beta Sylvanas Week XP Boost New Skins Overwatch Interview Blackrock Mountain Preorders New Cards Revealed...

In an interview with Polygon, Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan talked somewhat more specifically about how the game rose from the ashes of the Titan project, but also how Blizzard’s current game offerings have had an impact on how it’s gone so far. Something that surprised me coming out of this article is how hard Kaplan is working to drive home the point that Overwatch is not just a piece of the intended Titan experience spun out into its own game, but instead something built from scratch that only took some design lessons learned by the Titan dev team. Another interesting note came from how the team is starting to consider the esports possibilities of the game. Kaplan tells a story about how the Overwatch QA team took funds intended for a party and instead threw an in-house tournament for the game. This was apparently a turning point in how Blizzard thought about the game, which then laid the ...

Blizzard announced today that the closed beta for Legacy of the Void will be kicking off March 31st, and among other things, Archon Mode will be one of their first test objectives as soon as the test begins. Hearing the line that the beta will start off with more rough edges and “run for a longer period of time than usual” is very interesting to hear, since it gives the impression that the beta will be longer than the six month periods that both Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm received. That being the case, we might not see the release of Legacy of the Void until shortly before or after BlizzCon this year. Just when you thought Blizzard learned their lesson of having their convention and a product release push at the same time… ah well. We’ll see. Read the full blog below. The Beta is near… ...

Blizzard announced yesterday that they’ve got some plans for the ladder system in the coming seasons, so let’s get right to it. The short, short version? For the current season they plan to adjust leagues and the starting point for new players to be in line with their stated intent, as both have drifted off the mark. For next season, MMR decay will be disabled and more matchmaking tweaks will be made in order improve the experience. As we approach Legacy of the Void, the whole system will be under the magnifying glass. Overall, the sense is that they know ladder has got some issues, and are working to get those under control to make it more functional for everyone, especially players who are just getting onto the SC2 ladder scene. Read the whole post below, and if you’ve got strong feelings on the ladder system, make yourself heard. In recent months, we’ve ...
