Mounts

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...

Patch 7.3 brings Violet Spellwing, other mounts, pets, and transmog items Patch 7.3 has a lot of new stuff coming that players would likely be interested in — new mounts, pets, and even a few items for transmog hunters. Wowhead has the datamining reveals for all this amazing stuff, like the Violet Spellwing mount (a long-sought player favorite) and as soon as I drop a spoiler...




The Queue: Class mounts, bottlenecks, and the old guild

The last question in today’s Queue got me going down memory lane… It was kind of dangerous. I’m now thinking of popping over to the server and saying hello to a few folks.


Do you obsessively need to finish collections? I just downloaded Collection Shop and I’m already down 20k gold. I bought every transmog piece I could that was under 1k gold, which turned out to be quite a few old greens I never bothered with, and while I’m glad that I got those pieces, I also know full well that I’ll never use...

What motivates you to run old content? If I were going to be honest I’d admit up front that I haul my alts through older content for a variety of reasons. A solid half of the time it’s for transmog, and then the rest of the time is divided between enjoying feeling overpowered by blowing up old raid bosses, and because my...

Do you still run old content? I don’t need anything in Ulduar. I also don’t need anything in ICC, or in Trial of the Crusader. I don’t need anything in any Vanilla dungeon. I don’t need drops from most BC raids or dungeons. My transmog collection has pretty much every look I want from everything up to Cataclysm and I’m at...




BlizzCon 2016: Blizzard Watch Day 1 coverage That was quite the first day of BlizzCon 2016! People who were worried there wouldn’t be any news to talk about at this BlizzCon, I think your worries have been definitively answered. We here at Blizzard Watch wanted to give you a one stop place to check out everything we posted yesterday so you can...

Class and spec themed mounts coming to Legion in 7.2 Update: Watcher has said that we aren’t just getting class-specific mounts but spec-specific mounts (at least for post specs). Congratulations, Shadow Priests, you don’t have to ride a glowy holy mount. Flying is coming in patch 7.2 with the second half of the Broken Isles Pathfinder achievement for players to unlock. But that’s not all we’re...



BlizzCon 2016 in-game goodies revealed Although people have had their BlizzCon 2016 tickets — both physical and virtual — for quite some time now, we didn’t know what the in-game rewards would be. The wait is now over — Blizzard has just released a list of all in-game items for the event…well, most of them, anyway. World of Warcraft players...

Breakfast Topic: How do you feel about microtransactions? The topic of microtransactions is one I like to revisit from time to time. Players’ perceptions of them often change — those who once indulged greedily decide they’ve been burned and those who swore they’d never indulge at all found something tempting enough to pull them in. To get straight to the point: how do...

New Legion mounts and pets datamined from latest alpha build The Legion alpha is back from its holiday break and with it comes a new patch full of datamined goodness. New Legion mounts and pets have been discovered based on inventory icons. So saddle up for a ride into Spoilertown.

New skins, mounts, and bundles datamined in latest Heroes patch Today’s Heroes of the Storm patch introduced the new ranged assassin Lunara, but datamining has revealed a number of other goodies. Genn Greymane’s full suite of talents and abilities are in the patch as well as new skins and hints of new bundles.

Moose models from legion
BlizzCon 2015: Baby moose models invading our hearts in Legion The Burning Legion might be trying to take our planet, but these baby moose models from the Legion preview panel have already stolen our heart. Will they be frolicking out in the world, in the new Highmountain zone, or just available as an item drop? Will their parents be tameable by Hunters?

Artanis, Lt. Morales, new skins and mounts coming to Heroes of the Storm Heroes of the Storm has released a video previewing upcoming characters, skins, and mounts. The upcoming Lt. Morales (the StarCraft Medic unit) and Artanis (the leader of the Protoss) can both be seen in this video.

Breakfast Topic: How many mounts have you collected? I have a lot of mounts. A lot of them are rare or hard to find, and I had a lot of fun tracking them all down and adding them to my collection. But when I saw the latest update to the patch 6.2.2 PTR notes, I realized my collection is a lot smaller than...

Breakfast Topic: Create a bonus event It’s not really a secret that I love the Timewalking bonus weekends.  As someone who’s been playing since vanilla (cue “thanks for the reminder” groans), any chance I have to take a trip down Nostalgia Lane makes me very happy.  Outside of the nostalgia factor, though, I like the idea of rotating events to help...
