Blizzard Watch Week in Review: Still admiring Arthas’ hair
Seriously. Look at that hair. Look at it. Who knew we lost such lovely golden locks when Arthas became the Lich King? Tragic indeed.
But we can’t mourn the loss of great hair forever. Let’s check out what’s been happening in the world of Blizzard this week.
Your weekend to-do list
- If you’re looking for a new game to try out (or are just interested in giving the console version a spin), Diablo 3 is free to play on Xbox One this weekend.
Everything you need to know about lore
- With Garrosh Hellscream coming to Heroes of the Storm soon, it’s time to look back on his history.
- Last week we talked about Arthas Menethil, the Paladin, the son of Lianne and Terenas Menethil. The Crown Prince of Lordaeron. This week, we talk about Arthas Menethil’s fate. (Spoiler: it’s not good.)
- We don’t know what it’s going to be about or when it’s going to be released, but we do know Christie Golden is writing a new Warcraft book. Hooray!
- Anne talks about how to play an RP character who’s extraordinary. (Like your very own Hogger.)
World of Warcraft
- The latest wing of Tomb of Sargeras LFR came out this week, and if you haven’t tackled it yet, here’s what you need to know.
- More news about WoW’s patch 7.3! We have previews of new mounts, pets, and transmog (including the impending CUTEACLYSM), a raid testing schedule for the PTR, and now validated Doomsayers.
- Putting our soloing feats to shame, Demon Hunter Mione has soloed Court of Stars +19.
- A Fabio-like young Arthas hero is coming to Hearthstone. All you have to do is defeat the Lich King nine times to unlock him.
- These crazy and totally non-canonical Knights of the Frozen Throne comics are amazing, so stop what you’re doing and read them right now.
- But if you prefer to stick to the facts, we have all the details of the new Hearthstone expansion, plus commentary about the cards that have been revealed so far.
- DID BEN BRODE PROMISE US A NEW HEARTHSTONE RAP? Ahem, not that we’re excited or anything, but “Arthas” is due out on the 31st.
- At long last, Doomfist is live in Overwatch.
- Also live, a new reporting system that will dish out harsher punishments.
Heroes of the Storm
- Sort of dead, sort of hero Garrosh Hellscream is coming to the Heroes of the Storm PTR on the 31st, and wen have our first look at his skillset in this new hero spotlight video.
- Another week means a new rotation in Heroes of the Storm, but with Garrosh still two weeks away there’s not much interesting happening in the Nexus.
- A ton of new skins are coming, including Nightmare-fuel Anub’arak and Templar Li-Ming.
