The latest World of Warcraft 6.0.3 hotfixes went live today addressing a number of issues. Some of the more interesting changes include the personal loot re-reversion for random dungeons which had previously been reverted to need or greed. Personal loot also received some changes, with the final boss of each random dungeon guaranteed to drop one item even if you don’t get something from any of the other bosses. Players can also now find portals to the Azeroth Dark Portal near Khadgar in Orgrimmar and Stormwind. There are also changes to the newly launched Molten Core LFR and enormous Tarren Mill vs Southshore battleground that went live for Blizzard’s 10-year anniversary celebration. For the full list of notes since 6.0.3’s launch, see the official blog post. We’ve included only today’s changes below.

Iron Sensei Revealed

by DannieRay23 on

Pcgamer is the latest website to reveal an exclusive Hearthstone Card from the new Goblins vs. Gnomes set, they bring us the Iron Sensei. And this Rogue Card looks pretty interesting. as a 3-drop, a 2/2 stat line isn’t very impressive, but his ability makes up for it handsomely. If you have another mech on the board it will get a sizable +2/+2 boost so essencially you are getting 4 attack and 4 defense for just 3 mana. Considering all the cards that have been revealed that play well with Mechs, the idea of a Rogue Mech deck is becoming more and more appealing by the day. One wonders if maybe Concealing this guy along with a Micromachine would be a good play, you’d have like an ultra Shade of Naxx. What do you think about this new reveal? Are you already planning on running Mech Rogue? Maybe you are ...

 

Diablo II Ladder Reset Next Week

by Neinball on

Coming next week, on Nov. 25th the Diablo II Ladders will be reset. While the D2 ladders have been resetting every six months for a few years now, this reset has a lot of players of the classic game excited. Why? A large number of exploits were fixed earlier this year and many players are expecting this to be one of the best Ladders ever. While it’s always unknown if there are other exploits lurking in the wild, the vast majority of duping methods and an exploit that caused server crashes have been eliminated. Archon, Leviathan, and I also plan on starting up some new characters for this reset for a special episode of Westmarch Workshop and will be inviting listeners of the show to come and play with us on stream. We don’t have exact details just yet on when this stream will take place, but make sure to ...

After a short hiatus due to BlizzCon, Play Your Way Thursday has returned. This week, Nevalistis is highlighting a Monk build submitted by Capicorp#1432. His build focuses on the Cold elemental application of Exploding Palm. Cool ‘em down to blow ‘em up? I can subscribe to that newsletter. Take a deeper look at this popular build with a new twist: Martial arts can be as deadly as they are beautiful in practice, comprised of precise moves, honed to flawless execution. Taking inspiration from one of his favorite novels, Capicorp#1432 has embraced the lethal artistry of a professional assassin to deliver a chilling result. About the Build: Exploding Palm is a shockingly effective ability with pinpoint accuracy that delivers devastation with the lightest touch. In the novel 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami, the lead character Aomame is a physical therapist-turned-assassin who specializes in eliminating her targets with similar effectiveness, her specially made ...

Tracer Statue Available for Pre-order

by matticus on

A statue of Overwatch hero Tracer is now available from the Blizzard store for pre-order! She’ll set you back a cool $150. The base of the statue has the option of coming with an illuminated Overwatch logo. You can see her in a classic mid stride as she’s in gunning form. Sculpted by Senior Sculptor Brian Fay and painted by Senior Illustrator Laurel Austin, you can really notice the care and attention that was given to really capture Tracer’s personality. The figure measures 10.5″ (or 26.67 cm) from floor to head and it includes an AC adapter with a battery option. Alas, it does not come with batteries. These statues are expected to ship sometime in February 2015. She looks awesome! Can’t wait until I get one of these!...

I want to focus first on the cinematic experience for Overwatch, since it literally brought me to tears when I was watching it this morning on the show floor. Rumor has it that Blizzard’s Cinematics guys have been rubbing elbows with Pixar lately, and if that’s true it really demonstrates what Nick Carpenter and his team can do when they glom onto a style and run with it. The anime-influenced style is definitely something that you wouldn’t normally associate with Blizzard, but this cinematic changes all of that. From the 2D elements in the first part of the video to the six different characters in play throughout the fight itself, this is a brighter, crisper and more fluid kind of animation than we’ve ever seen out of them before, and it looks amazing. Moreover, as a cinematic that gives you a very strong impression of what the game itself looks ...

BlizzCon attendees and Virtual Ticket holders can rest easy if they haven't gotten the chance to purchase any Blizzard swag yet. New goodies are now on sale on the Blizzard Gear Store through November 11....

Blizzard announced a brand new IP for the first time in seventeen years. Overwatch is a significant departure for Blizzard Entertainment and as such if you were to sit down and play this without knowing if was a Blizzard game, you’d have a hard time really knowing it was. This is a whole new world that lacks Orcs, Terran’s, or a Reaper of Souls. The first thing that comes to mind from the trailer is Team Fortress 2, and this wouldn’t be too far off from the feeling I got from the game. But along that line, it has that Blizzard polish that they are so well known with this game having the variety and amount of classes so far looks to lend some depth and variety this genre. One thing I also noticed during the trailer and gameplay is this feels like a very family friendly game. The game doesn’t seem ...

 

Legacy of Void Details Emerge

by Neinball on

The long awaited conclusion to the Starcraft II trilogy is finally here. Today we’ve finally gotten our first look at the Legacy of the Void. The campaign will focus around Artanis and his quest to take back the protoss homeworld of Auir and to stop the looming threat of the Xel’naga. In single player story you’ll command the Spear of Auir, a massive warship, that will allow you to use a super weapon during missions that has the ability to wipe out entire armies. Multiplayer In addition to the single player content, there will be new additions to the multiplayer and eSports side of the game. It seems you’ll be able to play LoftV without Wings of Liberty or Heart of Swarm, but we don’t have details yet on how that will work in terms of multiplayer modes or story modes. We have three new play modes being added in: ...
