Webcomic Wrapup: Grunt work You’d think we’d be over the whole fetch quest thing by now. I mean, we’re heroes that have been fighting and doing good deeds for years and years at this point. Heck, right now I’m carrying around priceless artifact weapons. I mean, I’m good, right? I have to be good if they just handed those...

Patch 7.3.2 notes feature minor changes and class tuning Patch 7.3.2 notes were released today — and the background downloader started up earlier this week — which means the patch is coming very soon. However, this is probably not the patch you expect or are looking for. Patch 7.3.2 is a very minor update, with bug fixes and adjustments or tuning. Antorus, the Burning...




Know Your Lore TFH Edition: Helya’s betrayal and the Death God Last week we talked about Keeper Odyn and the dread being he had summoned from the Shadowlands. Odyn forced his stepdaughter Helya to call up this creature for him. The entity made a pact with Odyn, teaching him how to see into both the Shadowlands and the world of the living, by swallowing his eye...

The Queue: It’s time to panic

My wife and I are moving this weekend — just got the keys to the new place today and we’re slowly migrating stuff over now. The movers will be here tomorrow so we still have quite a bit of stuff to do tonight and yes I’m panicking of course I’m panicking we’re moving tomorrow and we’re not ready we’re not even close to ready.

Deep breaths. You can do this. You’ve done it before.

Anyway here’s the Queue.


Diablo 3 panels and events at BlizzCon 2017 There won’t be any big announcements at BlizzCon this year for Diablo 3, and that makes me sad. But that doesn’t mean there won’t be anything for you Diablo fans at this year’s convention. Coming off of the launch of the Rise of the Necromancer patch, the Diablo 3 team is heading to BlizzCon with various interesting bits...

Are you ready for the next WoW expansion? We haven’t officially been told what it will be yet, but we’re all fairly sure that there’s going to be a World of Warcraft expansion reveal at BlizzCon. This has gotten me thinking about whether or not I’m emotionally ready to move on from Legion. I haven’t even gotten into Antorus yet, but it’s coming — the...

BlizzCon 2017 Pre-Show videos intensify the hype How can you go wrong with Ben Brode? The answer is you can’t.

Yes,...

Dread the spine-tingling terror of Overwatch’s Return of Junkenstein comic Who is Jamison Junkenstein? What does he want? How did he survive last year’s fracas to return now? Who are these people trying to stop him? How on Earth do we get that Genji skin with the hat and OMG why is that not a skin? These questions and more* will be answered in the...

The Queue: But does he know how to alphabetize

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!

Uh excuse me, miss? Miss? You know, it’s been years since I’ve done any work in a library so I’m no expert, but I’m pretty sure the staff wouldn’t be too keen on just summoning animals indoors willy-nilly. I mean, I know the city’s all magical and otherworldly, but someone is going to have to clean up after that thing, and I don’t think Khadgar’s interested.


Will you run the Headless Horseman this year? There’s a tradition of sorts with holidays in World of Warcraft. They all drop something you want, and they all never actually drop it. So I’ve always taken a kind of bittersweet approach to Hallow’s End, the WoW version of Halloween. But as of this year, I’ve got everything I want from ol’ Headless. I have the...

Hearthstone’s Hallow’s End event brings tricks, treats and more It’s the Hallow’s End season, and Hearthstone is joining in on the festivities from October 24 to November 6. Not only will you be able to get special goodies just for logging on, but you can also take part in a special Tavern Brawl that suits the theme — namely, the theme of getting disguised and...

BlizzCon’s collectible pins and how to trade them Having never gone to BlizzCon — next year, I swear I’m doing this somehow — I’ve never experienced the various activities and interactions the convention has to offer. For example, I didn’t know anything about the idea of collectible Blizzard pins, much less that people trade them at BlizzCon. But now I do. Something like...

7th annual Warcraft Student Art contest expands to four categories The Blizzard University Relations department has been running various student contests for years, and the art contests in particular are pretty awesome. This year, Blizzard is running several, and if you’re a college student in the United States or Canada (with a few exceptions), you can enter. One of those is the Environmental Art contest,...
