BlizzPro

 

This week’s Play Your Way Thursday feature is especially special. No, it isn’t Deadmau5 or anything like that this time around. Even better, the BlizzPro clan has received the honor of having one of its members featured in the column again! As you may recall, I had my go at it the first time around and now Thibbledorf is in the spotlight. This week’s feature focuses on the Witch Doctor class with Thibbledorf’s crowd control build working off of the Helltooth Set. While openly admitted to be a rather underpowered set by developers and the community alike, it’s nice to see Thibbledorf making it work in this build, as he spins a new take on hybridization of support and DPS roles for the Witch Doctor. Community Representative Nevalistis breaks everything down far better than I can here in my mini-recap, so go ...

Monday we saw Blizzard ban thousands of players who were using bots in order to win gold or gain rankings in Hearthstone. Today, Blizzard has banned some top tier players who have been accused of “Win Trading” The full announcement can be found here: Fair play is at the heart of Hearthstone. The Ranked Play ladder is a place where players have the opportunity to duel and gauge their card-slinging prowess while climbing the ranks. Participating in Ranked Play should be fun, exciting, competitive, and fair. We’ve recently banned Hearthstone accounts that were found to be participating in win trading. Win trading at any rank is something that we do not take lightly, and is in violation of our Terms of Use. As we mentioned in our previous statement regarding fair play in Hearthstone, instances of cheating will not be tolerated. Accounts that were discovered participating in win trading have ...

This is no trick. Blizzard is treating all of us to a nice long weekend of bonus gold and experience! Starting in less than seven hours from the time of this posting (12:00 a.m. Pacific Time, October 31, 2014 to be exact), you will see an in-game Community Buff both for PC and console players providing +100% bonuses to Gold Find and Experience. The best part? This buff is multiplicative. This means that whatever bonuses you’re already receiving from Torment, affixes on gear, Paragon points, etc. will be multiplied by this community buff for HUGE gains. As a bonus to the bonus, Daylight Savings Time ends this weekend, so you’ll actually get an extra hour to take full advantage of. Read on below for the details. Somewhere between the High Heavens and the Pandemonium Fortress linger spirits who hunger for the company of wandering nephalem. . . . This weekend, we invite you ...

 

Relic Hunter’s Toybox: Haunted Hiding

by BLU30RION on

You looking for something special? Got that new boosted 90 that you want to stand out? Perhaps you want to disappear from sight? Never mind that shoddy looking oil lamp. What you need is a true treasure. Not sure where to start? Come with me, and I will show you some great items that will make your adventures that much grander. Join me as I scour the lands of Azeroth and beyond for those special items… Sorry, but BLU3 has been too busy exploring old raids to notice the Marauder of the Azerothian seas, Pollywix, sneak back in. To be truthful even if he had been watching for me he wouldn’t have caught me. He may have caught a fright though. Want to know how? If you promise to sign a non-compete order I will waive the customary 150g information fee…in half. Make sure you pay the 15g entrance fee at the door. It is always best to start off with what you know, ...

Delivered by UPS this morning, I received this little treat from Blizzard folks This is all that came in the package. A blueprint post card of a Repair Bot along with the note “Making Plans for BlizzCon – I hope you like my invention!” It seems we aren’t the only people who received similar packages today. TouchArcade received a blue print of a Demolisher and Noxious received a blueprint of a Poultryizer. We’ve also seen a Harvest Golem blueprint floating around as well. It’s obvious that Blizzard is teasing their Hearthstone announcement at BlizzCon, and with November’s card back being Goblin themed it’s likely the next expansion could very well be mechanical focused in nature. What do we know about this next card expansion so far? Well, we know it’s going to be around 100 new cards and the way to get them will be through another set of booster packs which ...

With the upcoming release of Walords of Draenor, Blizzard reminds us to keep our information in our Battle.net accounts up to date. With these five simple steps we can help make the process of purchasing product and managing our accounts a lot simpler. The original post can be found here.

The Edge: 6.0 Impressions!

by matticus on

Episode 36: 6.0 Impressions! The first week of 6.0 has come and gone. Most of the crew tried out Siege of Orgrimmar on their characters with the updated models in a post-stat squish environment. Many of the bosses were significantly nerfed. Outside of SIege of Orgrimmar, those of you interested in soloing raids will be happy to know some of the legacy raids have been made easier. For example, Icecrown Citadel’s Dreamwalker can be skipped entirely by walking right past the mobs and the Gunship encounter can be defeated within seconds of jumping into a cannon. In other event news, Hallow’s End is also now available! Blasted Lands is seeing elements of Iron Horde forces attempting to establish a foothold in Azeroth. The Edge crew also discuss the latest news with BlizzCon. The final act has been announced! It’s Metallica! Bonus: How many Metallica references and song names can you ...

Metallica to Play at BlizzCon

by JR Cook on

It’s always fun to hear people speculate every year on who will play at BlizzCon and I don’t think anyone has ever got it right. There is no rhyme or reason on who Blizzard gets to play at their biggest show of the year and this one is no exception. Metallica will now join the ranks with Ozzy, Foo Fighters, Tenacious D, and Blink182 of the past and will be playing at BlizzCon’s closing ceremony this year. Prepare yourselves for awkward moments of the lead singer asking if you actually brought an iPad to a rock concert. You can read the full announcement here: We’re thrilled to announce that Metallica will be performing the closing concert at BlizzCon 2014, playing before a sold-out convention crowd on the night of November 8! If you didn’t score tickets to the show, don’t worry—you can still get a front-row seat from home with the BlizzCon ...

by matticus on

Episode 35: 6.0 is Here! Patch 6.0 has arrived! The Edge team spends the first half of the episode discussing the positives and the negatives that the patch is bringing out. We’ll have more updated thoughts in next week’s episode after we spend some more time with it. Here’s a quick and consolidated list of the major updates: New Character Models Stat Changes Item Changes Auction House Changes Currency Changes Toy Box Reagent Bank Void Storage and Reagent Bank Additions Class Changes Guild Changes Group Finder Siege of Orgrimmar Changes Level 90 Upper Blackrock Spire Blasted Lands Quests UI Improvements Old World Dungeon Revamps Undelete Character Feature And more!
