If you're like me, you're kind of done with Diablo 3 and eagerly anticipating what Blizzard is going to roll out with Diablo 4.
Demon Hunters are the first new class coming to Hearthstone!
I was so excited for Horrific Visions when Blizzard first unveiled them.
Out of all the announcements about World of Warcraft at BlizzCon 2019, two things spoken by Ion Hazzikostas stood out to me over anything else: "unpruning" and "player agency." I'm hopeful that this is a sea change in the design philosophy for WoW.
At today's World of Warcraft Q&A panel, a player asked if we'll ever be able to transmog our weapons into legendary weapons such as Val'anyr, Thori'dal, and the like.
"Player agency" is turning into the biggest buzzword of BlizzCon this year.
World of Warcraft has certainly taken its fair share of ideas from the Diablo franchise: random legendary drops, the whole idea of socketing gems into loot -- even the original Classic WoW talent trees were inspired by the skill trees of Diablo 2 but today the tables have turned.
To me a loading screen in Diablo games is a chance to take a breath -- a break from the tension of surviving in the game's hellscapes to gather myself and get ready for the next challenge.
Today's Deep Dive panel revealed further information about leveling changes coming to WoW in Shadowlands.
Day 1 of BlizzCon has come and gone.
