The Queue: I haven’t done the Trial of Style and I might not

I honestly thought I would have by now. But I haven’t. Just haven’t felt the slightest inclination to log into WoW. It’s like I simply can’t until patch 7.3 drops. Which means I’m going to miss out on the fun new thing, but that’s the way things go sometimes. In the meantime I’m enjoying my Diablo 3 play, so that’s something.

Well, okay, also my computer freaked out and I had to reinstall Windows last week so I lost all my WoW screenshots, and that has me bummed out.


What new modes should Overwatch do next? Recently we found out that Blizzard is putting a Deathmatch mode in Overwatch. A lot of players have wanted that mode forever, and now it’s coming. But that has me wondering — how many modes does Overwatch need? More importantly, at this point is it lacking anything you’d like it to have? Overwatch seems pretty diverse to...

Hearthstone’s Knights of the Frozen Throne music is an excellent listen for all Okay, while I don’t play a lot of Hearthstone, one of the things I love about Blizzard games is the music. The Knights of the Frozen Throne update brought not only the usuals like new cards and challenges, but also music for the new expansion. The folks at Hearthhead have it, and as is almost always the case, it’s...

Overwatch Contenders returns for Season 1 and more esports It’s been a wild week in esports. We heard whispers of the NCAA trying to establish themselves in collegiate esports which is comical at best, given their rules. Since college athletes under their banner aren’t allowed to make money on their given sport, being awarded a Twitch affiliate sponsor button could get one of those...

The Queue: So do we sing it a lullaby or what?

Welcome back to The Queue, our daily Q&A feature for all of Blizzard’s games! Have a question for the Blizzard Watch staff? Leave it in the comments!

Uhoh, the world is having nightmares. Should we read it a story? Check the closet for monsters? Give it a flashlight? Maybe some brandy? Look, I don’t really know what to do with babies, okay? But I do know how to answer questions, so let’s stick to that.

Overwatch is unveiling a brand new animated short in a world premiere during the Blizzard Reveal Ceremony live stream next Wednesday at 6pm CEST (9am PDT/12pm EDT). Those of...

BlizzCaps: The missing link in the food chain “Here we see the rare and elusive Carnivorous Squirrel in its natural habitat, stalking its natural prey,” writes submitter Paladave of the Queue on Nesingwary (US-A). “The Silvertail Mountain Goat is as ofyet unaware of his peril. The Vindicator and I watched, as silently as possible, lest we attract the attention of the vicious Squirrel...

Argus has several new Hunter pets to tame Sometimes it feels like the people at Wowhead and Petopia are out to get me. See, I’m married to a Hunter. She pretty much never players her alts. She’s been playing the same Hunter since launch day 2004, and she gets so excited when new pets become available to tame. So every time a post...

Blizzard unveils new spell animations in patch 7.3 Back at the start of Legion, we got new combat animations for each class. Some players loved them — I’m personally still hugely fond of how Rampage looks — and others weren’t so happy. Also, caster classes like Mages, Priests and Warlocks noticed they didn’t get the same love. Well now they will, as patch 7.3...

Role Play: Plot points for roleplayers headed into patch 7.3 Argus is clearly visible in the sky for all players now. We just had a new 7.3 related scenario drop yesterday.

Bastion of Twilight raid entrance
7.3 PTR raid testing coming up this week Raids have to be tested every WoW PTR cycle, but due to the nature of monitoring these raids, the development team likes to be on hand to observe. Thus, they have to schedule raid testing for specific windows of time, announced in advance. So, here’s the announcement — there’s more raid testing for Antorus, the...
