Episode 57 – Flying in Draenor

“First they said you might be able to fly. Then they said you weren’t. But now you will for sure be able to fly in Draenor. If they take it away again we’ll go for a brawl in the Tavern.”


World of Warcraft

The developers finally reached a final conclusion and decided that flying WILL be available in Draenor.


Heroes of the Storm

Within the first week of Heroes of the Storm the first new hero got added which is the crusader from Diablo 3: Johanna

Diablo 3

The end of season 2 is near and is already in the first week of April – which means season 3 is close!

Reaper of Souls, the first expansion to Diablo 3, is turning 1 and that’s celebrated with an experience and gold buff.

In other news this week in the MMO world, the subscription drop change to The Elder Scrolls Online went live. Question is would this encourage you more to go out and play this game now? Do you think subscriptions in MMO’s are a thing of the past? Listen to the podcast to hear our opinions.

Episode 25: Now you see me

“A spooky card back awaits us as a reward in this season of Hearthstone.. and what’s this? Goblins on my minimap in Diablo? Let’s hunt!”


Hearthstone

To celebrate Halloween the seventh season of Hearthstone will have a Hallow’s End themed card back. So get to rank at least 20 in this season to get your hands on it.

And just to make it a bit extra spooky was the Naxxramas board added to the rotation in both normal play and in arena mode.


World of Warcraft

The PVP season is about to end so now is the time to make that last push to be the among the best PVP’ers in the world. Or maybe just to get those last items you need.


Diablo 3

Haven’t we all tried to miss a treasure goblin and not realizing that we pulled it until it was too late? The newest treasure goblin changes in Diablo should make it more clear when a goblin is near.


General Blizzard

Are you also a fan of the original Warcraft games but sad that you can’t play them on newer computers? Seems like Warcraft 3 is about to hit Battle.net.
