Hearthstone Blackrock Mountain Adventure Guide

The Hearthstone cards for Blizzard’s latest adventure, Blackrock Mountain, have been unleashed. Blackrock challenges players to fight through the molten depths of the fiery mountain itself, stopping iconic and villainous characters, while claiming powerful rewards in the form of new and exciting cards.

Thing is, these foes won’t give up their spoils - often allowing of completely fresh and whacky decks - without a good fight. Fortunately for you adventurers, we have the know how and the tactics to give each and every boss a run for their money cards. Read on for our guide to beating Blackrock Mountain.

Update: we've added the guide to Wing 3 - Blackrock Spire!

Blizzard incentivises revisiting old dungeons with Timewalking

World of Warcraft patch 6.2 is now live in the Public Test Realm. Blizzard revealed the 6.2 PTR patch notes yesterday, but kept one new feature under their hats until now: Timewalking. 6.2 introduces seven weekend events, and two of those events will be Timewalking weekends, where you’ll be able to venture into old-school dungeons with a new difficulty.

The price of eSports legitimacy can't be cable network restrictions

Among Heroes of the Dorm’s other issues, one huge problem that afflicted it this past weekend was the fact that a large portion of its international audience couldn’t actually tune-in to watch it.

That’s because ESPN3, despite being an online streaming service, isn’t available to a lot of online viewers due to the subscription fees ESPN charges. That left Heroes fans, particularly in Canada, out of luck even as some of their own teams were competing in Heroes of the Dorm.

All for the sake of four letters: ESPN.

Hearthstone arrives on iPhone and Android

The great thing about Hearthstone was that, while it could always be as addictive as a smoking habit, most of us were forced to leave it behind at some point. You had to go to work. You had to ride a bus. You were at a restaurant with your romantic partner. You were in the bathroom. You were doing something that required a leaving Hearthstone and all its enjoyable frustration behind.

Not anymore. Hearthstone has gone mobile. I repeat: Hearthstone has gone mobile.

World of Warcraft 6.2 patch notes speak of garrison shipyards and Tanaan Jungle invasion

World of Warcraft 6.2 patch notes speak of garrison shipyards and Tanaan Jungle invasion

Former subscribers could be forgiven for thinking that World of Warcraft was still chiefly a game about gathering some friends to go out and biff men with beaks. But thanks to the garrison features of Warlords of Draenor, it’s now also a game about building shipyards and sending vessels out on naval missions.

The comfort of the familiar can be found in the quest the shipyard unlocks, however: an expedition into Tanaan Jungle to push back the Iron Horde.

Watch Nick tackle Diablo 3 on hardcore tonight

Diablo 3's new season has started, and with it a whole bunch of new legendary items will be unleashed thanks to patch 2.2. As an avid player, I’ll be starting anew with a yet undecided class, playing on the unforgiving hardcore difficulty.

As I make my way through to level 70, and to the end game, I’ll be streaming my adventures on our Twitch channel. If you have any questions, or maybe some theorycrafting to contribute, you’re much welcome to join. Or, you know, you can watch to see if I meet my demise early or not.

Also, according to Blizzard, Season 3 will aim to last around four months, as they further test the waters for a fitting Season length.

WoW Tokens have already shed almost a quarter of their value

It’s only taken a single day for Blizzard’s WoW Tokens, which can be redeemed for World of Warcraft game time, to dip in value. WoW Tokens can be purchased for $20 or 30,000 in-game gold. The latter of the two prices can change with the in-game market, however, and it has. You can now buy WoW tokens for almost 25 percent off their original price.

Diablo 3 patch 2.2.0 is out now, introduces bottomless health potions

The health potion is no more. In one of the biggest changes to core gameplay in Diablo 3’s 2.2.0 patch, the regular health potion has been scrapped completely from the game. Replacing it on the action bar is now a Bottomless Health Potion, which can be used as often as needed. It heals a set 60% of your maximum life. 

Bottomless Health Potions are just one of many new changes that come as part of the patch. Find the whole set of patch notes below, which detail new Treasure Goblins, improvements to all classes, and an increase in Blood Shard caps.

WoW Tokens go live tomorrow in the Americas and Australia / New Zealand

The WoW token, which functions a lot like EVE’s PLEX, goes live tomorrow in the Americas and Australia / New Zealand. The token will sell for $20 USD / $25 AUD, and it’s starting price in-game will be 30,000 gold, though that will fluctuate with supply and demand.

It’s going to be a big change for the economy of World of Warcraft, and one that will likely make a lot of elite players very happy.

World of Diablo: here's what Diablo 3 looks like with a normal third-person perspective

World of Diablo: here's what Diablo 3 looks like with a normal third-person perspective

Dungeon-crawling, hacking and slashing loot-fests, games like Diablo, Torchlight, Titan Quest, they’re all isometric affairs. With that camera fixed in the sky, all that lovely loot and all those horrible monsters are a lot easier to click on.

A change in perspective makes a dramatic difference, transforming Diablo into something that looks a lot like World of Warcraft. MonstrousD3 has been fiddling with Diablo III’s camera, and the result is less Diablo, more World of Warcraft. It all looks a bit odd. Take a gander below.
