The hype train continues… somewhat erratically, really, because after the teaser image from a few days ago I expected it would be longer before we saw something else. Still, here’s what’s new: Who is "Soldier: 76?" New image provides clues about suspect involved in attacks on Overwatch facilities. pic.twitter.com/BOgmpKQghD — Overwatch (@PlayOverwatch) July 2, 2015 So what does this image tell us that we might not have already known before? Well, first and foremost is the clear look at what our new hero’s backside looks like, with the clear “76” and a triangular frame. This cements the idea that our new hero is likely male, since that body shape wouldn’t make sense with a female character; Zarya’s body shape is still feminine even if she’s built like a glorious pink-haired earthmover. We can also tell that this dude is wearing a mask, which has been stated plainly in previous ...

Cory Stockton, lead game designer on World of Warcraft, has confirmed that Patch 6.2 is the final large content patch of the expansion. Speaking in an interview with Mamytwink, Stockton said: Although Warlords has only had two raid patches/tiers, Stockton said that this may not be the case going forwards – they will use whatever fits. However, as Blizzard moves towards their goal of a shorter time between expansions, an obvious impact will that there will be fewer large patches. The interview also covers many other topics, including the power of the Mage Tower to counter the long Shipyard missions (Stockton says that this has been tempered by the recent hotfix). Other topics include the legendary ring (raids aren’t designed around everyone having one, which should help re-rollers), Farahlon (it didn’t fit in this expansion, but may be included in the future) and – of course – flying. According to Stockton, players put ...

Blizzard has updated the hotfix blog with the most recent updates and fixes implemented in patch 6.2. This includes adjustments to the length of certain Naval Missions which have been reduced to 18 hours or less. Currency awards from certain missions have also been increased. Along with the updates to Naval Missions, Bonus Rolls used on Supreme Lord Kazzak now reset properly and can be used weekly. Mac users screen resolution should still be maintained when switching from Fullscreen to Windowed mode. The mail system has been fixed to allow mail with items attached to be returned to the original sender, and messages from Blizzard’s In-Game Customer Support can now be deleted. Take THAT, wonderful note returning my disenchanted item and telling me to have a wonderful day! Let us know what you think about these changes in the comments below!...

 

Ars Arcanum: Serpent's Sparker

by Hotstreak on

Books have often been society’s only bastion of light for passing along knowledge that would otherwise be lost to time or convoluted by the oral tradition. In order to provide new and old adventurers with as much knowledge of what to expect on their journey in Sanctuary, we created this tome of knowledge – Ars Arcanum. We will regularly feature a Legendary weapon or armor piece, discussing its stand-alone powers and capabilities, as well as how it may synergize with new builds or other items. Serpen’ts Sparker  has always been an item that I’ve kept my eye on because Hydra  is an iconic skill and a huge nostalgia trip for me from the D2 days. Ever since I came across a sword on open bnet that summoned hydras every time you landed a hit, it became an instant favorite for me. So when SS was put into RoS it immediately piqued my interest ...

 

Identity Enigma #10: A+ Students

This week's edition of Identity Enigma is all about the A+, can you uncover the secret identity of these three prized students?...

 

Webspinners are the gimmick this week and it’s very similar to the Webspinner challenge we saw in Curse in Naxxramas. However, this time you choose a class and the deck will be full of Webspinner minions along with random spells for that class. Each time you load it up the deck will be completely random as will your opponents. Yong Woo confirmed on Twitter that the spells are random: Several people asked about this: the class spells in your deck are random! https://t.co/dIVyA9DJDW — Yong Woo (@cataclyst78) July 1, 2015 Have you had a chance to play Tavern Brawls yet this week? How did it go? Let us know in the comments!...

Episode 79: WoW Patch 6.2 and The Eternal Conflict...

In addition to re-jigging the Overwatch main site to help showcase their blog entries, it looks like the Overwatch team is also looking to start writing some news articles from an in-universe perspective. That’s what brings us this news report from Atlas News, which seems to go hand-in-hand with the teaser image we saw weeks ago. In related news that should surprise no one, Team 4 is going to be at gamescom 2015 in Cologne, August 5-9th. The timing of these teasers definitely indicates that we can expect to hear some big news out of Blizzard. Without further ado, let’s get to the Atlas News piece, with some commentary from yours truly after the article: Experimental Weapon Stolen from Watchpoint: Grand Mesa WORLD By Atlas News Staff 1 hour ago 7 Officials Confirm Connection to Earlier IncidentsGRAND JUNCTION, CO—A masked intruder has attacked a former Overwatch facility, injuring a number ...

During the PC Gaming Show at E3, Blizzard announced three new Starcraft II missions being introduced before the release of the final expansion, Legacy of the Void. Designed to bridge the gap between Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the Void, Whispers of Oblivion is a series of missions where players join Zeratul for the first time since Wings of Liberty to unravel the Xel’naga prophecy. Everyone will eventually be able to complete these missions, but players who pre-purchase the final expansion will be able to access them much sooner than those who do not. Additional information will be released in July on how and when players can access these missions. The original post from Blizzard can be found here on the Starcraft II Community Site: http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/blog/19804019...
