Warlock

Introducing Hearthstone’s latest hero, Nemsy Necrofizzle Hearthstone is getting a new alternate hero! Her name is Nemsy Necrofizzle, a Warlock. The story of Nemsy is a tragic one. While out exploring the Sunken Temple within the Swamp of Sorrows in Azeroth, Nemsy was exposed to the mystical energies within the swamp which twisted her until she became the Warlock she is...

Know Your Lore: The Fall of Argus, Part 1 The homeworld of the Eredar. The birthplace of Velen and the Draenei. The seat of the Burning Legion. A world on the border between the Twisting Nether and the Great Dark Beyond. Argus is, was, and will be one of the most pivotal worlds in existence. The heart of the Burning Legion’s portal network, the...




Breakfast Topic: Could WoW fit new specs? Right now all WoW classes have three specializations, except Druids who have four, and Demon Hunters will come in with Legion and will only have two. In the discussion of new class options, one thing that keeps coming to my mind is the idea of expanding existing classes instead by adding new specializations instead of...

Blood Pact: Legion’s Warlock legendaries Among the Diablo 3-esque features of this expansion, in addition to the bounty-like world questing, are legendaries with specific class ability effects, sometimes spec-specific. While legendaries in Azeroth are nowhere near as prolific as they are in Sanctuary, they can still be kind of fun or useful if you get one. A Flaskataur selling all...

Class halls help gain secondary artifacts and more While everyone else on Legion alpha was retaining their most progressed leveling characters for more raid testing, I rerolled my Warlocks to level again. Blizzard requested that Warlocks, Monks, and Shaman reroll since the class hall updates included in the latest build don’t work very well on already post-100 characters. The Warlock class hall already...

More iconic abilities returning in Legion Blizzard’s approach to class design in Legion centers around the “distinctive identity” of a class and its specializations. While past expansions have pruned abilities from classes, Legion looks to diversify a class’s specs with spec-unique skills and talent options. That has heralded the return of many iconic abilities, some of which are radically different from their original versions....




Deck Tech: Hearthstone’s Reno Warlock This week’s deck centers around the new Reno Jackson legendary that came out with League of Explorers. Reno’s ability makes life tough for aggro players because right when you think you manage to get the player down to lethal range, out comes Reno to reset the player’s health right back up to full. Using Reno makes for some unique...

Video: Legion Warlock class hall tour In my final class hall tour before the Legion alpha went down for the holidays, we took a look at the Warlock class hall. Located on the Burning Legion stronghold of Mardum, its introductory sequence is one of the more epic of the many class halls — though at this point in the alpha, it feels a bit empty...



The Queue: Which came first, the warlock or the mage?

This one’s never going to be solved, because we know that Doomguards were created by the Titans to hunt down those that engaged in sacrificial magics, implying that there were Warlocks before the fall of Sargeras. We know that the most famous Warlocks, Archimonde and Kil’jaeden, were Mages on Argus before Sargeras came and converted to Warlock magic as a result, and that the modern Warlock tradition derives from their teachings, so even former Orc Shamans who became Warlocks learned from Kil’jaeden’s teaching of Gul’dan and thus learned from a former Mage.

In the end, all we can do is go on with The Queue.


Deck Tech: Demon Handlock While decks like last week’s Secrets Paladin have an explosive strategy, Handlock relies heavily on having as many options available to deal with threats. Warlocks can Lifetap allowing them to lose 2 health in exchange for drawing an extra card during the turn. That’s where the deck name Handlock comes from. While the deck first...

WoW Leveling Bonanza: Felwood shenanigans Last week on Blizzard Watch's WoW Leveling Bonanza we headed to Felwood, minus one green-haired gnome but full of the spirit of adventure. What kind of adventure, you ask? Why, the kind that leads us through half a zone's worth of quests, a horde of incredibly irritated imps, and more green ooze than you can shake an ooze-covered custom made furbolg beehive whacking stick at.

Zoom through Hearthstone with this warlock Zoo deck At first glance, Zoo might seem awfully similar to Face hunter largely due to the cheap minions. A Face hunter deck relies on numerous cheap and aggressive minions to batter away at the opponent while relying on their Steady Shot hero power to chip away. However, the Warlock Zoo deck here will be using the minions to completely dominate the board first.

Blackwing Lair
Hearthstone’s Blackwing Lair opens Thursday Another week means another wing! Blackwing Lair wing details for Hearthstone's recently released Blackrock Mountain adventure can now be found on the Hearthstone website. After Nefarian tried to wave us off when we stormed through Blackrock Spire, we're going to take the fight to him!
