Maiev Shadowsong
Know Your Lore: The fate of Maiev Shadowsong We’ve talked about Maiev Shadowsong before, but we haven’t really discussed her role in Legion. It’s a role which raises as many questions as it answers. Both Maiev and Jarod Shadowsong show up in the expansion. Maiev features in the Demon Hunter starting zone, as well as appearing in Val’sharah. But a lot of the...

Lightsworn: Dungeon tanking tips, talents, and treasure You can solo as Protection all day long (and it’s a blast), but you aren’t tanking until you get into group content.

It’s adequate for holding threat and has solid but unremarkable...

We tackled Black Rook Hold and had fun doing it — even if we weren’t entirely sure how to play our characters yet. The archive is...

Today, Blizzard unveiled its next expansion pack and with it, lots of information on the upcoming zones, dungeons, and raids. The expansion experience will begin at The Broken Shore and the Tomb of Sargeras, where an endless gateway of demons pours out into our world — this is the biggest demonic invasion...
