PC Gamer recently published a Hearthstone interview with Senior Producer Yong Woo and Game Designer Mike Donais.
It’s that time again! Patch 6.2 is here, heralding the release of a new raid dungeon in our near future. We’ve got lots to talk about, so let’s dive right in and discuss patch 6.2 Druid changes for each specialization from the PTR patch notes, and the datamined new set bonuses as revealed by Wowhead.
Simply invoking the word “scaling” as a class or spec’s primary issue provides very little meaningful feedback, and is usually a disservice to yourself and your community. Let’s analyze why.
Welcome to Shifting Perspectives, Blizzard Watch’s regular column for druids of all vocations. This week, Chase Hasbrouck (@alarondruid) is on like a magnaron. Welcome back to another Blackrock Foundry edition of Shifting Perspectives! Today, we’re going to continue our series on the bosses of Blackrock Foundry, moving on to the second wing, The Black Forge. (If you missed the beginning of our series, click here to read my druid guide to the first wing, The Slagworks.) The fights in this wing are a good bit more challenging; you'll find managing your position to be key to avoiding the many traps that await you here.

Welcome back, druid friends! With 6.1 releasing this week, it’s time to take a look at the changes and see what you need to focus on. There were no groundbreaking changes, so the theme for druids this patch has been one of versatility. Several of the tweaks made previously poor talents viable choices, enabling more diversity in talent selection. First, I'll look at the two global talent changes, then look at each spec in turn.
The Enhancement problems come down to three basic issues: too much emphasis on area damage, not enough meaningful and impactful cooldowns, and too many buttons to rotate through normally. As cool as the spec is, we wind up feeling unwieldy and tuned for a role we didn't really ask for.
Welcome, shapeshifting friends! It’s great to be back. Once again, I am amazed at the community that this site shares, and am immensely grateful to be able to contribute to it. I’m going to steal the Queue’s format for this week and devote this column solely to your questions; going forward, let me know what you want to see! Q&A? Guides? Detailed analysis? Diatribes against the gear-stealing, death-feigning, class-who-will-not-be-named? Leave a comment, let me know!
