The newest hero to enter the nexus is none other than the legendary Blood Elf mage Kael’thas. He brought an amazing kit of spells along with some interesting synergy in team comps that lacked true stuns from their burst. So far I’ve had great experiences with Kael’thas and decided to feature him for my build this week. To check out some of the lore and basics about Kael’thas check out our brand new hero page located here Abilities Verdant Spheres – Kael’s activate-able trait allows you to empower his other abilities. You must be mindful of what spell you are going to cast before tapping this. For instance if you know that you will be initiating an engage on one target by opening with gravity lapse it wouldn’t be a good idea to use this first since you wont need to stun more than one target. I find that using ...

Identity Enigma goes green for its fourth edition, can you guess which 3 Hearthstone Cards we are talking about?...

Blizzard has just posted a new Dev Watercooler talking about itemization changes coming in Patch 6.2 and how they’re working to make raid loot feel more rewarding. Personal Loot One major change is improvement upon the existing Personal Loot system. Loot chances for Personal Loot will no longer be based on the individual (which had the potential for zero members of the group to receive loot), but instead will be based on a system similar to Group Loot to determine how many members of the party *should* receive loot, and the system will reward items to players accordingly. This should help normalize the amount of loot being earned. Set pieces will also drop more reliably in the new system so it is less likely members will be stuck without a two or four piece bonus. The overall rate of reward is also being increased for this system, which should help ...

Diablo 3 Celebrates 3 Years

Books have often been society’s only bastion of light for passing along knowledge that would otherwise be lost to time or convoluted by the oral tradition. In order to provide new and old adventurers with as much knowledge of what to expect on their journey in Sanctuary, we created this tome of knowledge – Ars Arcanum. We will regularly feature a Legendary weapon or armor piece, discussing its stand-alone powers and capabilities, as well as how it may synergize with new builds or other items. There have been many famous combinations throughout history: peanut butter and jelly; macaroni and cheese; cereal and milk, to name a few. While these delicious treats have sustained gamers for eons, none of them are particularly effective in ridding Sanctuary of its threats and dangers. Enter Focus & Restraint. These rings, redesigned in Patch 2.2.0, represent the type of power we deserve and need in this slot. ...

 

McCree Gameplay Preview

by pallimmanis on

Last week we saw gameplay demonstrations of Zenyatta and Mercy, and this week Blizzard has added another character gameplay preview: McCree. See the outlaw McCree dispense justice on his own terms in this complete, unedited match from an early version of Overwatch, captured in 60fps on PC. Here, McCree is on the attack in Watchpoint: Gibraltar, a Payload map set in an abandoned Overwatch outpost perched above the Mediterranean Sea. This game more than likely won’t hit Beta until Fall 2015 but Blizzard is certainly doing their best to keep people interested and eager to jump in as soon as the testing opens....

It’s been a busy week for the boys (and girls) in blue. We got all sorts of new information about most of Blizzard’s IP’s with the only exceptions being Starcraft II which is currently testing Legacy of the Void, and two gameplay previews from Overwatch where we saw a bit more about how Zenyatta and Mercy play. Check out all of our great content from the last week and get caught up with anything you may have missed using the links below.

Mercy Gameplay Preview

by JR Cook on

Yesterday we got a gameplay video from Zenyatta’s perspective, today we get one from Mercy. These games are played by the Overwatch developers and the QA team at Blizzard. The map is the Temple of Anubis, a point capture map. The video is recorded at 1080p with 60 FPS. As a reminder, this game doesn’t even get into beta until Fall 2015. I personally can’t wait to play it more....

Blizzard news has been pretty slow this past week with exception to Heroes of the Storm. We’re a week away from open beta and we’re probably going to be seeing a new patch this week with the new hero Kael’thas. WoW lost a lot of subscribers according to the last Activision-Blizzard investor’s call but Hearthstone is up to 30 million players. BlizzPro has a special date today as we’re celebrating our 2 year anniversary and are giving you a chance to win some pretty cool prizes. With that said, we’ve had another great week in content as always and here’s our roundup if you missed anything. BlizzPro Activision-Blizzard 1st Quarter Conference Call Ding!

Two years ago today we launched BlizzPro. When we launched we just had a small mission – 1 site that covered all things Blizzard related run by a group of volunteers who are passionate about Blizzard games. When we launched we had 5 volunteers on the site and that’s including myself. Today we have an individual site for each Blizzard game and over 30 volunteers either writing articles, producing podcasts, or putting together video shows. In our first month of operation we didn’t even have as much traffic in one month as we have in 1 day now. It’s actually pretty crazy to see how much we have grown and our team wants to just continue doing even more. We do it because we’re passionate about these games and the communities that have developed around it. The craziest thing is, we feel this is just the beginning and we can ...

April Fools: Spear of Adun

by JR Cook on

The day that the entire internet becomes a useless piece of crap is now here, and as always (well, except for the year they decided not to) Blizzard is participating. First up today is the StarCraft April Fools where they claim you can purchase the Spear of Adun, a real Protoss arkship. Best thing is, it’s even on sale! Now instead of paying $9,999,999 you can get it for the low price of $9,999,998 on the Blizzard Gear store. Too bad it’s out of stock though. Never fear though, the estimated completion date on this thing is the year 2315, but since this is Blizzard you can probably expect it around 2412 instead. Check out the full blog post here for more information on the Spear of Adun:...

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… ...
