Gul’dan

Know Your Lore: Death Knights, then and now Before the Frozen Throne crashed into Icecrown, before the lords of the Burning Legion first conceived of a weapon that would scour life from Azeroth, there was only means, motive and opportunity... and a self-serving power hungry Warlock grasping for a tool.

More nerfs to Nighthold in latest WoW hotfixes Anyone struggling with Nighthold will be happy with this batch of hotfixes, which dishes out some significant nerfs to several bosses. Mythic players will find Spellblade Aluriel’s damage and health has dropped, and Star Augur Etraeus’ health down as well. All players will see nerfs to Etraeus and bug fixes for Gul’dan — in short,...




Un’goro Madness already nerfed in latest WoW hotfixes Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone! I hope you’re ready for some WoW hotfixes. The good news is that none of you are getting nerfed. Unless you’re a raid boss. Sorry, Tichondrius and Gul’dan, if you’re reading. Also getting hit by the nerf bat is the Un’goro Madness holiday that started today. (Okay, maybe they’re bug fixes,...

Lightsworn: Bringing the Light to Nightspire and Betrayer’s Rise The Nighthold is a big place, but it’s almost clear of those pesky demons, uppity elves, and grandstanding warlocks. Just two wings await us — the Nightspire, where Tichondrius, Krosus, and Grand Magistrix Elisande can be found, and Betrayer’s Rise, where we can finally put an end to this alternate-timeline Gul’dan. First the peak of...

How do you feel about trade-offs? One of my least favorite fights in Nighthold has to be Chronomatic Anomaly, and that’s pretty much entirely thanks to the Passage of Time ability that slows everything down. When the boss does this, you walk slow, cast slow, and even have to wait longer for cooldowns to be available. It’s infuriating. I absolutely cannot...

Know Your Lore: The Reunion of the Elves The Suramar questline steadily unravels ancient Elven history, from the time before the coming of the Burning Legion to the destruction of the Well of Eternity, and presents you with a gradually unfolding picture of Elvenkind and their society. It gives you a sense that the Elves as we know them today were once one...




Know Your Lore: Dangling plot threads in World of Warcraft Every game as big as World of Warcraft is going to leave things unfinished or truncated from time to time. This is just the nature of the beast. Sometimes these things are unavoidable, and sometimes they come back and are resolved years later in ways we might not have expected — if you play a...

Know Your Lore: The Shal’dorei of Suramar They are the ancient Highborne dream deferred. Powerfully magical — to them the magic of the Nightwell is literally food and drink — the Nightborne are the ancient survivors of the grand city of Suramar, the birthplace of many notable Night Elves alive today. Jarod and Maiev Shadowsong, Malfurion and Illidan Stormrage Tyrande Whisperwind — all...



Raynor returns to this week’s hero rotation Whether you’re excited about the upcoming Machines of War event or the arrival of Zarya and Alarak in Heroes of the Storm, you have some time to wait. Machines of War (with two new maps), Alarak, a free hero for everyone, and (we’re guessing) a rework of Valla will go live on September 13 which leaves us with three weeks to wait for new...

Auriel, Gul’dan see changes in latest Heroes of the Storm patch Though we knew we would be getting a rework of Valla in a future patch, today’s patch notes include changes to eight heroes, none of which are Valla. (Since her changes aren’t here, we expect them to come with the Machines of War patch, due to hit the PTR on August 29.) Among the heroes...

Gul’dan joins the free hero rotation just before Gamescom It’s a quiet week in Heroes of the Storm, or at least it is right now, early on a Tuesday morning. Gamescom is kicking off soon, and with it we expect to hear about the next big thing coming from Blizzard — and since we don’t know of any upcoming heroes, it would be a...

You should watch the other faction’s Broken Shore cinematic First, let’s get the spoilerific business out of the way. This post is full of spoilers. If you haven’t played through the introductory quest for the Broken Shore, go do it now. You don’t even have to have purchased Legion. All WoW accounts in good standing with a character at level 100 can do it....

The Tomb of Sargeras Part Four: Standing Alone The finale to Blizzard’s audio drama, The Tomb of Sargeras, has just been released. In Part Four: Standing Alone, Gul’dan has come into an incredible amount of power, courtesy of the Burning Legion. But will he use that power for its intended purpose, or will he instead keep it for himself, and serve no master?...

Tomb's Fury
The Tomb of Sargeras Part Three: The Tomb’s Fury The next chapter in Blizzard’s Legion audio drama has arrived! Part Three: The Tomb’s Fury sees Khadgar and Gul’dan engage in a heated game of cat and mouse deep within the Tomb of Sargeras. Khadgar wants to know what Gul’dan is up to, and he’s got the perfect bargaining chip: Knowledge. But with Gul’dan’s dark...

The Tomb of Sargeras Part Two: Old Friends Apparently Blizzard isn’t wasting any time with the release of its first audio drama. The Tomb of Sargeras Part Two: Old Friends has just been released. In this chapter of the four-part tale, we follow Khadgar on his pursuit of Gul’dan. But before Khadgar can go find Gul’dan, he has to deal with Maiev and her...

Tomb of Sargeras
The Tomb of Sargeras Part One: The Fate of Another Blizzard has tons of printed lore and animated shorts, but today they’ve released their very first audio drama. Written by Robert Brooks and narrated by Steven Pacey, The Tomb of Sargeras tells the story of Gul’dan’s journey to — you guessed it — the Tomb of Sargeras. There, he is charged with the task of...
