WoW Classic is getting bug fixes that were never in the original game

WoW Classic moves further and further away from being a 100% accurate recreation of the original World of Warcraft with every moment that passes — not that it was ever really going to be able to recapture what it was like to play WoW those years, but I digress. Still, seeing this bug fix for...

What’s the first thing your characters are going to do when the Shadowlands pre-expansion patch drops?

Getting ready for all the changes that happen when a new expansion pre-patch drops is a time-honored tradition in World of Warcraft, and it’s one I’ve been through a few times now. I have a bit of a ritual — first, I figure out which of my characters have changed the most and how much...

To all the brews I’ve loved before: A sample of the silliest suds in Azeroth

Welcome to Brewfest 2020, Azeroth’s annual celebration of the “fermented fruits of the harvest!” Running through October 6, Brewfest is World of Warcraft’s homage to Oktoberfest, which we celebrate in-game by tossing kegs, racing rams, and of course, the classic “kill someone for something shiny.” But why settle for only 17 days of celebration? Let’s...

Storm, earth, and fire will rock Hearthstone Battlegrounds, with new Heroes and Elementals joining the game!

DIE, INSECTS! Ragnaros, the Firelord, will once again grace Hearthstone Battlegrounds with his presence — but for his return, things are very, very different. Not only has the Elemental Lord been redesigned, but he brings a bunch of new hero friends and a whole new tribe of minions, Elementals, to command! There is, in fact,...

Relearning how to play a Shadow Priest, Balance Druid, or Enhancement Shaman in patch 9.0

Even though every class and spec is getting changed somehow for Shadowlands, not all of them are getting major changes. Every class is getting “un-pruned” — that is, some classic abilities that had been removed are returned to them — but in most cases those returning abilities are for utility, and don’t directly interfere with...

The Queue: I missed you all!

It’s been so long since I wrote a Queue! Like, slightly more than a week! I missed you all! I saw that Mitch made you do all the hard work in supplying your own earworms for Anna. I hope you left her some good ones. But it’s time to return to our regularly scheduled program — the Queue.

Spear of Rethu transmog available from Legion Archaeology this week

Looking for something quick to do in the waning days of Battle for Azeroth? Looking for new transmog or to finish an achievement? All this can be done this week as the Spear of Rethu Legion Archaeology quest is up for Highmountain. It took me 90 minutes start to finish with a friend tagging along...

What Blizzard franchise should get a movie next?

Blizzard has said in the past that the name of their game studio is “Blizzard Entertainment” and not “Blizzard Games” because they see themselves as not just making games, but creating franchises that can cross into different kinds of media. We’ve seen that kind of crossover into comic books, novels, audio dramas, and cinematics of...

Diablo 3 Season 22 is headed to the PTR with shadow clones and bonus Kanai’s Cube powers

The Diablo 3 patch 2.6.10 PTR will start on October 1, opening testing for Season 22: The Season of the Shadow, as well as the usual assortment of changes to items and sets. The test period is set to last for two weeks, but I kind of hope they’ll go over the two weeks just to give it...

Castle Nathria will have Covenant specific weaponry

Raid weapons have some of the coolest appearances in the game. There’s no feeling quite like walking out of your raid swinging a weapon that you just pried from the cold dead hands of one of the mightiest bosses on Azeroth. We’ve already seen that the upcoming Castle Nathria raid in Shadowlands was going to...
