Exploring Draenor: Primalist Mur'og

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: Edge of Daggermaw Ravine, north of Bladespire Fortress Task: Collect/kill Rewards: 17 Garrison Resources and Ritual Leggings of Mur’og. With mining, an additional 17 Garrison Resources and around 20 True Iron Ore. Bladespire Fortress: mountainous hub of the Bladespire ogres; a monolithic marriage of mineral and magma; and a secret hiding place? While galloping around Frostfire Ridge in the beta recently, looking for another part of that upcoming article that I talked about last week, I came across a vignette that was even more hidden than normal. Indeed, it appeared that the Bladespire clan had gone to some lengths to hide this one…which, in the manner of ogres, is ...

 

The Community Team (specifically CM Lore) has graced us with another round of Crash Course videos designed to teach you the basics of your class, and this time they’re up to date with Patch 6.0.2, wherein a lot of class rotations changed dramatically. My only critique about these videos is that you’re only learning one spec per class. For many classes, teaching the basics of the damage spec is likely a boon to benefit players who otherwise are flying blind with how to use their abilities, but for classes that have multiple DPS specs (or classes like Priest that have more healing specs than DPS specs) you might not be getting the exact brand of information you want. Then again, these are specifically branded as brief overviews, and don’t really do more than cover the basic single-target rotation and execute-phase abilities of each spec. It really behooves Blizzard to give ...

We are less than a week away from our Extra Life Hearthstone Charity Event on October 25 and we still have a long ways to meet our $1,000 goal. So with that, we decided to give a little incentive for people to start donating. For every $5 you donate to http://extralife.blizzpro.com you will be entered into a raffle drawing to win a SteelSeries Warlords of Draenor Headset ($220 value). I currently own one of these headsets and it is the absolute best sounding and most comfortable gaming headset I have ever owned. It could potentially be yours with a donation as small as $5. If you want to donate more than $5, you will get multiple entries. So, let’s say you donate $50, then you will get 10 entries into the drawing. We will do the drawing on Sunday October 26 and the winner will be contacted. We have more ...

As previously noted by my good friend Neinball, this latest edition of Play Your Way Thursday was going to be extra special. Not only were two builds going to be featured (both the winner V3dun’s “Void Ray” Wizard and second place finisher who was able to step in for the stream spot, Majier’s “Sweeping Thunder” Crusader) and not only were all of the participants going to be putting their characters (and pride) on the line by showcasing Hardcore gameplay for the first time on Play Your Way Thursday, but also the effervescent and widely-popular deadmau5 would finally be making his Diablo debut in an official capacity. [Those in the know surely recognize the tribute to him in this item.] With Brandy “Nevalistis” Camel and Don Vu in tow, this stream could not be anything but amazing. So, did it live up to the hype? Read on for my favorite highlights from the session and the ...

Meet Ciwiel Cosplay

by DannieRay23 on

Today we sit down with the Multi-Talented Ciwiel Cosplay. Learn more about her and her stunning costumes....

The previous three Play Your Way Thursday (Formerly Theorycraft Thursday) streams were amazing. We always had some little tid bits of information on coming changes that the devs would talk about during the stream, but this stream is shaping up to be a bit different. This stream is going to feature the one, and only, deadmau5! If you didn’t know, deadmau5 is a huge diablo fan and a dedicated hardcore player. That’s right, he plays hardcore. This will be Blizzard’s first official hardcore stream and it’s going to glorious! I truly hope no one dies, but I won’t deny that it would be entertaining if someone does… You don’t want to miss this stream, catch it tomorrow October 16 at 2:00pm PDT. While the master of magic, the Wizard, prevailed in our last Play Your Thursday community vote, we were unfortunately unable to sync up with V3dun#2884 for our upcoming livestream. Thankfully, runner-up Majier#1230 has ...

The BlizzCon 2014 schedule (most of it) is now out along with the floor map. At first glance, people who are not fans of eSports might be disappointed while those who are fans are going to be very excited. However, do not let this schedule fool you as there are some obvious gaps that Blizzard is not putting on this schedule and will probably reveal in the opening ceremonies. Friday Schedule Saturday Schedule Map If you’re an eSports fan, you’re loving how much work that Blizzard is putting around the StarCraft 2 WCS and the stage area they are using. They are really trying to play catch up to Riot and Valve in terms of throwing an event. I believe you’ll either hear more about the next expansion Legacy of the Void or at the very least how Blizzard is going to want to focus more on the eSports component ...
