Episode 95 – A Wild Khadgar Appeared

Podcast: Play in new window | Download


Khadgar is conjuring up a good cause for us to spend our money on. Tracer blinked her way into the Nexus. And there’s loads of new – and old – lore coming our way.


General Blizzard

Prequel to the Warcraft movie is going to be a graphic novel which we are very excited for.


Heroes of the Storm

Tracer has blinked her way into the Nexus and is soon a playable character in Heroes of the Storm.


World of Warcraft

Hearthstone

4V2JDH3S4VQC1460588110415

Khadgar can now be bought as a character portrait in Hearthstone. And the money goes to a good cause.

And we also talked about a few hand picked new cards for the Old Gods expansion that got announced the past week.

Episode 88 – Seas the Day

“The dead are rising in the Nexus…. and Is your glass half full or half empty? In Legion it won’t matter as you won’t be to use water mounts…”


Heroes of the Storm

Xul the necromancer is about to get added to the Nexus.

Two new small features are soon getting added to the game.

Get a free portrait if you’re going to watch the Esports stream.


World of Warcraft

The race for world first got a bit more interesting now that Paragon has decided to quit raiding.

Is the removal of Water Striders water walking ability the new flying-gate?


Guests: Sil from Battle Chat Show and Rosie Brent

 

Episode 78 – For Whom The Bell Tol’Barad

“Winter approaches and the heat of the demonic forces has arrived in Legion – The alpha is live! Doom rises in the Nexus and the Ruined City awaits us in Hearthstone!”


In Heroes of the Storm the new battleground Towers of Doom has been added and it’s a bit different than most of the maps.

There’s some big news for the smallest race in World of Warcraft when legion hits. But it’s not only the small an unappreciated gnomes that gets new and huntery things.

Now that Thanksgiving is over it’s finally time to look at the new wing in Hearthstone‘s League of Explores when The Ruined City hits this week.

Episode 64 – Yearning Legion

Gamescom had a lot revelations and new content for us to enjoy in all of the Blizzard worlds and I have a feeling we weren’t prepared for all of this…

Starcraft 2

Allied Commanders is coming soon as part of StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void, bringing with it a variety of open-ended cooperative experiences to explore and conquer’

Co-op PvE Starcraft – looks like another new way to draw people into the game and also give the game extra longevity outside of Standard Multiplayer. Nice feature we think!

“Infernal Shrines is a three-lane Diablo-themed Battleground featuring three shrines that will periodically gather power. Teams can unleash this power by activating a shrine, defeating its guardians, and summoning a devastating Punisher to fight for them. These powerful bosses will spawn with one of three deadly affixes—Arcane, Frozen, or Mortar— and will hunt down nearby enemy Heroes as well as pushing the lane closest to their shrine.”

They added the lovely arcane spell that everyone loves in Diablo (if you got the item that makes you immune)


Hearthstone

New mechanic in Hearthstone, Jousting. New ranked rewards and new cards!

 

Episode 61 – Starcraft Fridge Magnets
