Weapon restrictions and class identity World of Warcraft has weapon restrictions built into its class system. Over the years, it’s changed and relaxed some — Rogues didn’t used to be able to use axes, for example. However, Legion introducing Artifacts in a way reversed that. Even if you can still equip axes on your Rogue, you’re not going to be thanks...

Brewfest 2017: Once again, I will fail at Ram Riding It’s Brewfest again, and I once again have an opportunity to display to the world that I am utter rubbish at riding a ram around while trying to complete a task. I really don’t get enough opportunities to humiliate myself in front of people. Why would I do this to myself again? Because I need...




Mione solos Helya normal in Trial of Valor While Mione can solo current (and harder!) content than most players are doing currently, like, you know, a full +19 Mythic dungeon, raid bosses still give a bit of trouble. That didn’t stop her though, and the latest boss to fall to her solo endeavor is Normal-mode Helya. Even though it’s on Normal and also...

Fel Lasher drop rate and Grand Lector Enaara fixed in latest WoW hotfixes Apparently Herbalists can get a pet from herbing in Argus. I certainly didn’t know that, mostly because the drop rate has been so low that I’ve never seen one. Apparently Blizzard thought it was too low as well. Today’s hotfixes adjusted the drop rate, making the pet less rare. It now has a chance to...

Talk Like a Pirate Day hits WoW and Hearthstone September 19th is Pirate’s Day in WoW, and Hearthstone is celebrating with a little gold reward just for logging in today. In World of Warcraft, the long-established Pirate’s Day holiday hasn’t seen many changes, but there is the new Jolly Roger toy… but it’s a bit hard to come by. Said toy is available for sale by Edward Techt, but...

Yes, you can fight gaming toxicity by being nice to other players In a Developer Update last week, Jeff Kaplan called for the Overwatch player base to be nice to each other. I’m oversimplifying — the update discussed reporting features and their rollout on consoles among other things — but the message was clear enough. Overwatch can’t iterate on new content as fast as they would like because...




Know Your Lore, TFH Edition: Cycle of the Naaru In the beginning of everything, there was only the Light. It was a sea of living energy, filled with the potential of life. But as that sea expanded, pockets of nothingness began to form. This was the Void — and as it grew, it began to move against the Light. Eventually, the two forces clashed...

Latest WoW hotfixes see the return of Glyph of Fel-Touched Shards A small and unexpected list of hotfixes was released over the weekend for patch 7.3. However, Warlocks and Scribes alike can now rejoice — Technique: Glyph of Fel-Touched Shards is once again usable. The item, which dropped from Inquisitor Vethroz, was temporarily removed from his loot table earlier this month due to a bug. In...



Do you like the Netherlight Crucible? This week saw the last piece of the Shadows of Argus story quests, which concluded with the unlocking of the Netherlight Crucible. Now you can… reforge your Relics? Did anybody want this? I know that was snarky. And there are cool things about the Netherlight Crucible. It does serve to make RNG less awful. But it does...

Know Your Lore: The future belongs to Azshara Right about now, we can be forgiven for focusing on the Burning Legion and the threat they pose to Azeroth and the universe. Even if Sargeras was defeated utterly, the vast army of demons at his disposal will likely remain a threat. Although Archimonde and Kil’jaeden are seemingly disposed of, this vast worlds-destroying force is...

Webcomic Wrapup: Happy fel pools Petunia just looks so…cheery, doesn’t she? I suppose if I spent most of my days chilling in a hot tub I’d be pretty happy too. Minus the whole fel-goo part, of course. Sadly, I live in a desert and hot tubs — not to mention pools — are in short supply. I’ll just go ahead...

Latest WoW hotfixes adjust the Seat of the Triumvirate and more The latest round of WoW hotfixes address the new dungeon added with this week’s maintenance. A bug preventing some of the Seat of the Triumvirate dungeon World Quests from counting towards Emissary credit has been fixed. In addition, a couple of encounters have been adjusted as well. When fighting Zuraal the Ascended, Dark Aberrations should...

HCT Americas finals and more in esports The past week was a bit wild. My power went out right when I could’ve used a Hero of the Storm the most. Because it was a hurricane, see. This weekend I’m definitely cracking open a beverage which has spent time in a cold refrigerator. Now that my wifi is luckily back in service, esports...

Do you wish Shadows of Argus had more story quests? By now, players are unlocking the Netherlight Crucible, the Seat of the Triumvirate 5-player dungeon, and otherwise finishing up with the Shadows of Argus storyline. And I’m not arguing that the story for the patch is bad by any means… But I am curious as to whether or not it’s enough. Are you satisfied with the...

A quick guide to the Netherlight Crucible The Netherlight Crucible is a way to combat bad RNG with a little more RNG while making you stronger. Basically, before patch 7.3 if you got a Relic with a trait you didn’t like, you’d throw it away. Now, if you get that Relic, you have a chance to add a better trait to it,...

Lightsworn: Legion’s healing trinkets Deciding which healing trinkets to use is always an interesting minigame. Unlike our DPS comrades, whose trinket choices mostly come down to “highest single-target DPS” or “highest multi-target DPS”, we healers typically get to take our pick from a wide variety of trinkets, all with their own unique benefits, situational uses, and mechanics. Do we...
