The patch is not out yet, but my guess is we might see it by next week (unless they decide to release it later tonight or this week). It looks like the patch will be some balance changes and some hero and talent reworks as well as introducing a new hero Kael’thas. The @BlizzHeroes twitter account recently tweeted out the Kael’thas tease: .@Warcraft was only a setback. pic.twitter.com/l8m3ocsrX0 — Heroes of The Storm (@BlizzHeroes) May 5, 2015 Then Game Designer Matthew Cooper put together a little blog about what we’ll be seeing in the upcoming patch. The biggest changes we’ll be seeing are changes to Healing Ward (making it easier to destroy) along with some upcoming nerfs to ETC and Diablo and some talent reworks that will buff them in different areas. Hopefully we’ll be seeing a more diverse field of warriors with these changes. Other than that, Blizzard will ...

 

How To Skip Tanaan Jungle

by Crow on

So you’ve got another 90 alt and you’re all ready to get into leveling through Draenor… but the thought of going through the railroad experience of meeting all the titular warlords in Tanaan Jungle just saps your spirit. You just want to get to your garrison, find Pepe, and start questing, not meet a bunch of dudes that by-and-large you’ve already killed on your main. Well, looks like there’s a solution to your problem. That starting experience for the expansion is skippable if you can get to the Timeless Isle. We’ve put together a brief video walkthrough of how to skip the Tanaan Jungle starting experience in Warlords of Draenor. Just to be perfectly clear, here are the steps you take: Get to the Timeless Isle. Swim under the Croaking Hollow to reach the cave with the Grim Campire. Click on the Grim Campfire. You’ll appear in Gorgrond. Swim to the ...

The week started off with my birthday (and the realization that I’ve been doing the fansite thing for 16 years now) and ended on the unofficial Star Wars Day. This week was honestly kind of slow, but we did get to hear about a new starter pack in Heroes of the Storm and the final wing of Blackrock Mountain released. Blizzard is entering summer time though and other than Patch 6.2 on the horizon for WoW, it might be a bit before we really get any huge news from the studio in the next several weeks. With that said, we’ve had some great content as always this past week and here’s the roundup.

Heroes of the Dorm and Gameplay

I realize this is the second Grim Patron Warrior deck we have done in the last few weeks, the first was Yong Woo’s Crazy Trigger deck. However, in the last few weeks it appears Grim Patron has gone from a gimmick, to getting in a place where it’s one of the top decks in the game. In fact, LiquidHearth has recently ranked it as the #1 deck in their recent power rankings. Now this deck is very difficult to play. You can’t expect to just roll it up and win right off the bat. The deck takes a lot of practice to understand it, and I don’t think even sitting here explaining how to play it will help all that much, but I’ll try to do my best. The deck is all about the combo with Warsong Commander, Grim Patron and Frothing Berserker. You use Unstable Ghoul, Whirlwind, Death’s Bite deathrattle, ...

Exploring Draenor: Darktalon

by Malon on

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: Central Shadowmoon Valley, South of Teluuna Observatory Reward: Darktalon’s Drape Alliance players questing through Shadowmoon Valley will run into several rare mobs on their travels. Bahumeye, Killmaw, and of course the Podling kings. Back on the beta, though, one creature was feared and respected above all: Darktalon. Darktalon is a fearsome Dread Raven, with unusual purple glowing plumage, who nests in the hills above Teluuna Observatory. Not only has she got some pretty savage abilities of her own, but it’s incredibly easy to pull the Darktalon Hatchlings and Darktalon Young that also populate the area. While the Hatchlings only boast a single ability – Screech – the Young add ...

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… ...
