BlizzCon 2017 pre-show videos talk about Ezra Chatterton, cosplay, and more The first set of pre-show video episodes leading up to BlizzCon have gone up for this week and they seem to have a little bit for everyone. Two videos are free for the public, the first episode and a Heroes of the Storm Year In Review, and the other three videos are exclusive to the...

Hearthstone Innkeeper’s Tavern Cookbook hits shelves November 7 If you liked the official WoW cookbook, you’ll be excited to know the same author is now putting out another with a Hearthstone theme! Hearthstone: Innkeeper’s Tavern Cookbook is currently available for pre-order, and will hit shelves on November 7. This cookbook has six recipes to look through in the Amazon preview, which includes a...




Ask Samwise Didier anything this Thursday September 21st In case you don’t know who Samwise Didier is, he’s a Senior Art Director over at Blizzard who is currently working on Heroes of the Storm. And wow, is that not nearly enough to really explain who this guy is. If you’ve ever played Warcraft, be it the RTS games or World of Warcraft, you’ve seen Samwise’s...

Weapon restrictions and class identity World of Warcraft has weapon restrictions built into its class system. Over the years, it’s changed and relaxed some — Rogues didn’t used to be able to use axes, for example. However, Legion introducing Artifacts in a way reversed that. Even if you can still equip axes on your Rogue, you’re not going to be thanks...

Brewfest 2017: Once again, I will fail at Ram Riding It’s Brewfest again, and I once again have an opportunity to display to the world that I am utter rubbish at riding a ram around while trying to complete a task. I really don’t get enough opportunities to humiliate myself in front of people. Why would I do this to myself again? Because I need...

The Queue: A puppy for you

Was someone talking about puppy pictures? Yes? No? Either way, it doesn’t matter, because I am breaking out the big guns of puppy pictures with the above pair of six-week-old basset hound puppies. Just try to top that, because you can’t. It just not possible.

But, really, give it a try because everyone loves puppy pictures.





Heroes of the Storm: What is quick casting and why is it important? If you’re even a casual fan of Heroes of the Storm, it’s still a good idea to understand the ins and outs of the game. For example, even if you never play a particular hero, it’s still helpful to know their main ability kit. Similarly, understanding what quick casting is and how to use it...

How bad is player toxicity now? I have my own opinion on player toxicity — it’s gotten bad enough that I don’t even do LFR anymore and rarely do five-player content. Even then, it’s mostly late at night or when I have four friends on who want to rock some dungeons — but I’m curious what others think. Do games like Heroes...



Mione solos Helya normal in Trial of Valor While Mione can solo current (and harder!) content than most players are doing currently, like, you know, a full +19 Mythic dungeon, raid bosses still give a bit of trouble. That didn’t stop her though, and the latest boss to fall to her solo endeavor is Normal-mode Helya. Even though it’s on Normal and also...

Fel Lasher drop rate and Grand Lector Enaara fixed in latest WoW hotfixes Apparently Herbalists can get a pet from herbing in Argus. I certainly didn’t know that, mostly because the drop rate has been so low that I’ve never seen one. Apparently Blizzard thought it was too low as well. Today’s hotfixes adjusted the drop rate, making the pet less rare. It now has a chance to...

Junkertown map and hero changes now live in Overwatch If you've been wondering what's going on with Junkertown, you can stop wondering and start blowing things up, because Junkertown is live in Overwatch now.

The Queue: I am mice cars!

That’s approximately the same look I had when I thought of the above wordplay. I’m a real cool dude, you guys.


Talk Like a Pirate Day hits WoW and Hearthstone September 19th is Pirate’s Day in WoW, and Hearthstone is celebrating with a little gold reward just for logging in today. In World of Warcraft, the long-established Pirate’s Day holiday hasn’t seen many changes, but there is the new Jolly Roger toy… but it’s a bit hard to come by. Said toy is available for sale by Edward Techt, but...

Yes, you can fight gaming toxicity by being nice to other players In a Developer Update last week, Jeff Kaplan called for the Overwatch player base to be nice to each other. I’m oversimplifying — the update discussed reporting features and their rollout on consoles among other things — but the message was clear enough. Overwatch can’t iterate on new content as fast as they would like because...

Play Ana and Volskaya on the Heroes PTR, or play the latest free Hero rotation A new balance patch should be hitting Heroes of the Storm today, complete with a host of Hero changes. (And if that wasn’t enough, there are even more hero changes up on the PTR.) But unless those changes hit one of your Heroes of choice, there’s not much going on this week: just the Call of Kel’Thuzad event,...
