February 26th Hotfixes

by pallimmanis on

Rygarius posted another round of hotfixes last night to address some of the issues noted since the release of patch 6.1 into the wild. A few notable items from the full list: The Heirloom vendors Estelle Gendry (Horde) and Krom Stoutarm (Alliance) now have a similar aura surrounding them that was placed on Khadgar, which should prevent them from being covered up by crowds of people trying to get their upgrades. A fix to the oddly high amounts of Bonus Armor on low-level items has been added, however this change will require a realm restart before it will take effect. The Heirloom item Musty Tome of the Lost now uses the Heirloom Armor upgrade tokens rather than Heirloom Weapon upgrade tokens. This change also requires a realm restart before it will take effect though. S.E.L.F.I.E. Cameras can now be used while under a stealth effect so watch out for those sneaky Rogues ...

 

New Hero Hinted at for PAX East

by JR Cook on

Blizzard has hinted at a new map that will probably be seen at PAX East, and now we have hints at a new hero. What caused one weightlifting world champ hopeful to give up fame and glory? Find out in our March issue! pic.twitter.com/VGrAK8QjVu — Overwatch (@PlayOverwatch) February 26, 2015 This cover gives us some hints on what this hero will be. He’s likely to have an origin from Russia and is a melee/brawler style of character. The QR code when scanned reads “Together we are strong”. With the magazine being a March edition it once again leads us to believe this will be a PAX East reveal. We also have a possible picture of what the hero looks like from this art work that was shown during BlizzCon There is a press event today at the Blizzard Headquarters with some livestreamers attending. However, it sounds like they are ...

 

Next Adventure Mode is Black Rock Mountain?

by JR Cook on

We’re a little over a week away from PAX East and we know that the Hearthstone team will have some kind of major announcement at the show. Speculation has been a new adventure mode would probably be announced but up until now, we didn’t really have an idea what it might be. We might have gotten a hint of that answer today. Hearthhead has datamined a new upcoming patch in Hearthstone. Within it are some card backs for Ragnaros, Molten Core, and a Golden Celebration. Molten Core’s card back has the most interesting string associated with it that says “purchase brm presale”, brm in this case probably pertains to Black Rock Mountain where Molten Core is at. The Ragnaros card back is a seasonal card back and when (or if I guess) Black Rock Mountain Adventure Mode gets revealed at PAX East next week, will probably be the card back ...

 

New Animation for Mimiron's Head

by JR Cook on

In today’s patch one of the items added was a new animation for Mimiron’s Head. I think we can all agree that this is probably one of the best animations that you are very unlikely to see in game....

 

Patch 2.2.0 PTR Patch Notes

by Hotstreak on

The Public Test Realm for Patch 2.2.0 has gone live and is available to play on. This PTR will allow you to test all of the new and redesigned class sets as well as some new legendaries. There isn’t much in the way of class balancing in this patch but there are plenty of legendary item tuning. Shout out to Blizzard for making all potions bottomless, it’s probably the best quality of life change ever.Check out the official patch notes down below! GENERAL Regular Health Potions have been removed from the game The Health Potion slot on the action bar is now a bottomless Heath Potion that will heal you for 60% of your maximum Life The functionality of Legendary bottomless potions is unchanged Return to Top CLASSES Barbarian Active Skills Hammer of the Ancients Skill Rune – Rolling Thunder Should now more reliably hit nearby enemies in front of ...

Overwatch Press Event Incoming

by JR Cook on

It looks like the Overwatch team is preparing to release a bunch of new information on the game this upcoming week heading toward PAX East. Some Youtubers (Muselk, OneAmongstMany, Sips, and Star_) and some fansites (Overking) have been invited to Blizzard Headquarters this week. We’re not sure on the full list of attendees yet, these are just the ones we have seen talk about it. It sounds like the event will be showing them the game and getting their hands on it and then will be able to interview the developers. We’re expecting quite a bit of new information to come out of this event. This event sounds very similar to an event I was invited to at the end of June 2013 for Hearthstone. BlizzPro and a handful of other content creators (ranging from fansites and podcasts to Youtubers) attended an event at Blizzard Headquarters where we were shown ...

Demonlock Deck

by JR Cook on

Episode 50: Demonlock Deck This week we have a pretty sweet Demon Lock deck! It proves to be fairly effective against all decks (aggro, mid-range and control). We hope you enjoy! Deck List Demonlock Class: Warlock Warlock (21) Voidwalker x2 Darkbomb x2 Demonfire Mistress of Pain x2 Hellfire Imp-losion Shadowflame x2 Voidcaller x2 Demonheart Doomguard x2 Siphon Soul x2 Dread Infernal Lord Jaraxxus Mal’Ganis Neutral (9) Ironbeak Owl Sunfury Protector x2 Mind Control Tech Defender of Argus Antique Healbot Sylvanas Windrunner Molten Giant x2...

Arguably, one of the most heated debates among the community since the removal of the Auction House has been microtransactions. These conversations get legs for a few reasons. The Real Money Auction House (RMAH) provided a source of “renewable” and ongoing income for the game outside of box sales when a new expansion releases. While the company certainly isn’t hurting for money, players essentially equate that money with the means for their favorite game to continue to receive support. However, there is another, perhaps more fervent, side to this. Players always want more. Not just more development and/or more content, but also more of what they already have. We have character slots that were expanded with the release of Reaper of Souls to where, if you purchased the Collector’s Edition, you actually received bonus slots on top of what was naturally being provided in the expansion. A few months pass and it’s not ...

Episode 39 – A Glorious Season Awaits A new Season is upon us and new possibilities abound! Back to our normal format, Leviathan and Neinball go over some best practices and build tips for players starting fresh this season or those who are just looking to try out a new class. This week we focus on the Crusader and the Witch Doctor, but don’t worry we’ll cover more of the classes in our next episode. As always, we also field some questions from the community and showcase some epic loot you, our listeners, send in. While we’re all excited for Season 2, a still more glorious season awaits us in the future!...

Episode 38.5 We have a special episode in store for you today. This week we streamed the Season 2 launch with some members from our Blizzpro Clan. Come join our hosts Leviathan and Neinball along with special guests Lala and Thibbledorf. We discuss the recent Tavern Talk, bot bans, and class balance as well as just taking it easy through our late night stream of the opening of Season....

Legacy of the Void Multiplayer Update

by JR Cook on

We got another Legacy of the Void Multiplayer update to go with the one we got on December 17th. This is the second update we have now received since BlizzCon. In the last update there were talks about resource changes, and it seems that they are planning on sticking with those changes as it encourages more expansion across the map rather than just 1 or 2 bases. A new change they are looking at it slowing down the combat in multiplayer by about 40%. Right now they’re not sure if this change will end up making it or not as it will force the games to feel more dragged out. As far as units go, it looks like the HERC for Terran is now going away. It seems that Blizzard simply can’t get a decent new Terran unit as they had trouble doing the same in Heart of the Swarm. ...

 

Deathrattle-ish Shaman Deck

by JR Cook on

Episode 49: Deathrattle-ish Shaman Deck So the normal Deathrattle Shaman packs a bunch of Reincarnates, Ancestral Spirits and Baron Rivendare.  This is a little bit different.  It’s a great mid-range type Shaman deck with a bunch of problems for your opponent to deal with.  We hope you enjoy! Deck List Deathrattle-ish Shaman Class: Shaman Shaman (14) Earth Shock x2 Rockbiter Weapon x2 Ancestral Spirit Crackle Flametongue Totem Vitality Totem Hex x2 Lightning Storm x2 Fire Elemental x2 Neutral (16) Zombie Chow x2 Bloodmage Thalnos Haunted Creeper Loot Hoarder Harvest Golem Mind Control Tech Piloted Shredder x2 Feugen Sludge Belcher x2 Stalagg Dr. Boom Kel’Thuzad Sneed’s Old Shredder...

StarCraft 2 Battle Chest on Sale

by JR Cook on

Looking to get into StarCraft 2 before Legacy of the Void is out? Recently Blizzard made the Battle Chest where you can get both Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm in one package and today Amazon has that on sale for 25% off. Right now you can get the Battle Chest for $29.99. Do keep in mind, that as far as multiplayer is concerned, Legacy of the Void will be a standalone game when it’s released so if you plan on playing multiplayer you won’t need this edition. However, if you want to see the awesome story surrounding the game now is the time to grab it....
