Legendary Pictures has a big blockbuster movie coming out on June 12 with Jurrasic World. What better way to advertise your blockbuster movie for 2016 than to show it’s trailer at the beginning? That’s right, it looks like in a couple short weeks the Warcraft trailer will finally be revealed to the world. According to the website projectionlist the Warcraft teaser trailer will be shown before the movie Jurassic World in theaters. Now this isn’t a full movie trailer, this is a teaser trailer. It could be something similar to the 30 second clip we got with the new Star Wars movie a couple months back. I think it’s likely to be the teaser trailer that we got to see at BlizzCon 2014, but finished. Chances are the trailer will probably also be on the internet that same day without having to go to the movie theaters to see it. But ...

Tracer Gameplay Preview

by pallimmanis on

Blizzard has added another Gameplay Preview to the list. This time we get to see Tracer in action. For those who don’t remember, Tracer was one of the Overwatch members we were shown in the introductory cinematic at BlizzCon 2014 as she and Winston protected an artifact from Widowmaker and Reaper. Try keeping track of Tracer in this complete, unedited match from an early version of Overwatch, captured in 60fps on PC. Here, Tracer plays on the defensive team in Hanamura, a Point Capture map set in an idyllic corner of Japan. For the best viewing experience, be sure to watch the video in 1080p HD quality. For more information about Tracer, check out her profile available here: Tracer Profile...

This week's edition of Identity Enigma is nothing special, it's actually quite a bit plain....

Rygarius has updated the 6.2 Patch Note blog with the most recent set of updates available for testing on the PTR. As always, items marked in BOLD are updates or changes, ITALIC items are removed items, and strikethrough items are remnants from Blizzard’s notes and are the same as italicized items. A few items of note: Bonus rolls can be used in dungeons set to Mythic difficulty. The Personal Loot improvements noted in the blog post here are being implemented. Highmaul and Blackrock are receiving their traditional nerfs, which should allow raid teams to get a leg up into the next tier of content. Along with the nerfs come the removal of the Ahead of the Curve achievements for these raids. As should always be remembered with patch notes and items on the PTR: These are a work in progress and are always subject to change based on the outcome of testing....

This week we shall be looking into that Holy Warrior for Akkhan, the Crusader. With patch 2.2 came a revamped Roland’s Legacy, creating both Sweep Attack and Shield Bash builds. For this one, we will be focusing on a Lightning Sweep Attack, creating great crowd control while outputting high damage. It will also utilize a number of defensive skills, such as Iron Skin,  allowing for a great balance of the two. The build will not utilize a Wrath Generator, requiring careful execution and precise resource management, however making ...

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 ...

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.

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:...
