BlizzCon 2015: Heroes of the Storm State of the Game panel - Tue, 10 Nov 2015 02:00:48 +0000

Four Heroes of the Storm designers came to the Panels Stage at BlizzCon on Saturday to drop the latest on upcoming hero balance changes, snowball counters, and how they are addressing the hot topic of bad matchmaking by the system. They also lay out their plans for the rest of the year and what’s being […]

WoW Legion Paladin class preview - Tue, 10 Nov 2015 01:23:59 +0000

It’s Paladin class preview time and there are some tweaks and overhauls in the works. Holy Power is disappearing for Holy and Protection Paladins, but Ret Paladins are keeping it while their attacks are being modified to be mostly short ranged. Details after the jump. Holy Since Paladins are traditionally in heavy armor, the devs […]

Artwork from Legion
BlizzCon 2015 may be over, but there’s still a ton of information to process, particularly in regards to the next World of Warcraft expansion, Legion. While at the convention, we had a chance to sit down and talk with Lead Narrative Designer Dave Kosak about the upcoming Class Halls, pre-launch event details, zone-wide scaling, dungeons, […]

BlizzCon 2015: Playing Cho’Gall with Heroes devs - Mon, 09 Nov 2015 22:00:17 +0000

When I walked in to my BlizzCon interview with two Heroes of the Storm designers on Saturday afternoon I was quite frankly terrified. The Heroes team had thoroughly explained the reasons behind the new map, the new Arena mode and the three new heroes, Cho’Gall, Lunara and Greymane, at the earlier panels. I had no […]

Rogue’s class hall will not be Ravenholdt - Mon, 09 Nov 2015 19:51:45 +0000

In the same interview with Dave Kosak (Lead Narriative Designer) where he let drop some specifics about Legion‘s pre-launch event, he also told us that Rogues are not getting Ravenholdt as their class hall. Blizzard has something else in-mind entirely. Instead of the Hillsbrad location, Rogues will be positioned in a speakeasy-type location underneath the streets […]

WoW Legion Mage class preview - Mon, 09 Nov 2015 19:30:06 +0000

The Legion class preview for Mages is now live and is a bit different than the earlier Priest and Hunter previews. While those classes needed more separation and focus among their specs, Mages already have that so the devs are focusing more and adding to what’s already there than to revamp core mechanics. Read on […]

The Queue: Yeah, it’s still me - Mon, 09 Nov 2015 18:30:51 +0000

With half the office away doing BlizzCon, you’re stuck with me again. I promise someone else will be doing the Queue come Wednesday. (I’m still doing my usual Tuesday Queue.)

I’m very sorry, I’m sure you’re all very sick of me by now. But let’s do The Queue anyway.

Legion pre-launch event to be similar to the Scourge Invasion; most ambitious ever - Mon, 09 Nov 2015 18:07:41 +0000

Legion
In a surprising bit of news out of an interview we did with Dave Kosak, Lead Narrative Designer for WoW,  we learned that the pre-launch event for Legion will be the most ambitious ever, and similar to the Scourge Invasion that took place leading up to Wrath of the Lich King. Notable details include: The event will […]

BlizzCaps: I’m only a dolphin, ma’am - Mon, 09 Nov 2015 17:00:42 +0000

I have a certain theory about Saturday Night Live. Everyone claims that there is one era of SNL that is the greatest, and everything else is just a pale imitation. Having watched many of the shows from 1975 until today, I have become convinced that SNL has always been 90 percent awful and 10 percent […]

WoW Legion Priest class preview - Mon, 09 Nov 2015 15:30:17 +0000

Priests are next up for Blizzard’s Legion class previews. The roles of each are going to be more distinct with bigger heals for Holy, a greater Shadowform for Shadow Priests, and Discipline is going to be a balance of the two with a slight nerf to their absorption shields. Let’s dive in. Holy The Chakra […]

Breakfast Topic: What are your post-BlizzCon plans? - Mon, 09 Nov 2015 14:00:15 +0000

Last week, my gaming goals were pretty casual and ill-defined. I’ve been idly keeping up with my dailies in Heroes of the Storm, though I’ll admit I’ve let a few lapse since the Overwatch beta began. In World of Warcraft, I wasn’t doing much of anything. Sure, I planned on eventually finishing up that flying […]

Square Enix
In a video released just moments ago, Overwatch’s Game Director Jeff Kaplan announced that Blizzard is working together with Square Enix to release Overwatch for the PlayStation 4 in Japan. In the video, Kaplan speaks to the audience and describes the game’s “high-powered” nature and gives a brief description of the overall narrative of the […]

BlizzCon 2015: The future of Diablo 3 is patch 2.4 - Mon, 09 Nov 2015 02:28:09 +0000

All of Blizzard’s titles received big announcements at the Opening Ceremonies of BlizzCon 2015. Except one. But while Diablo 3 did not get any major expansion love, patch 2.4 was announced at their Friday panel and it includes a great deal of new content and features. And it’s hitting the Diablo PTR by the end […]

WoW Legion Hunter class preview - Mon, 09 Nov 2015 01:35:32 +0000

Blizzard kicks off its ongoing series of Legion class previews with the Hunter class preview today. They start with identifying the core class fantasy with four distinct elements: masters trackers, master snipers, master trappers and tamers of wild beasts . Unfortunately, all three specs incorporate all those elements to one degree or another. In Legion, […]

Demon Hunter first impressions from BlizzCon - Sun, 08 Nov 2015 23:42:46 +0000

While the Legion beta is just a few weeks away, the Demon Hunter class was already available on the demo stations at BlizzCon.

We’ll see a series of posts, each outlining a specific class and how it will be changing […]

BlizzCon 2015: Hearthstone Fireside Q&A - Sun, 08 Nov 2015 19:00:26 +0000

Taking place at BlizzCon 2015, the Hearthstone Fireside Q&A allowed players a chance to get up close and personal with the Hearthstone designers. This is what we learned. Hearthstone’s Senior Game Designer Mike Donais took the stage first to discuss Tavern Brawls. This format originally revolved around three different methods: Building your own deck, selecting a […]

The Queue: Titan’s Grip Lives - Sun, 08 Nov 2015 17:00:28 +0000

So it turns out I’ll be maining a Fury Warrior in Legion after all, because thanks to the Legion Q&A I know that Titan’s Grip isn’t going anywhere — the Artifact weapons for Fury Warriors are 2h weapons, they’re just not sized properly yet. Special thanks to Jay Wilson for answering the question at the Q&A, and Dylan Rondeau for asking the question in the first place. Whew. I’m super happy now.

Let’s do this first post-BlizzCon Queue while I’m all happy.

Breakfast Topic: Did Blizzard just solve the “bigger bags” issue once and for all? - Sun, 08 Nov 2015 14:00:14 +0000

It’s one of the most common refrains we hear, year after year: when are we getting a bigger starting bag? We hear it in The Queue, over Twitter, at BlizzCon. The question is always asked and the answer is almost always the same: not now, or just plain no. However, two things happened at BlizzCon […]
