Hotfixes for July 28, 2015

by Alebeard on

Community Manager Spyrian took to the official forums this afternoon to announce a hotfix for Heroes of the Storm.  The patch itself was quite small, but it did address two major bugs that had found their way into play recently.  The first involved the use of Shadow Assault to allow Zeratul players to travel much farther than intended.  The second allowed Leoric players to deal massive amounts of damage to the Garden Terror or Dragon Knight thru a bug with the Crush Hope talent.  Just like with the Lili Cloud Serpent exploit, it is nice to see Blizzard taking quick action to address these types of game changing bugs. The full post can be seen here....

A couple small hotfixes went live today in addition to the Ashran changes Lore discussed several days ago. The fixes address the level 3 Trading Post, which did not correctly attribute reputation bonuses in Draenor, and the achievement Filling the Ranks, which some players did not receive since the July 21 hotfixes. July 28 Garrison Trading Post Level 3: The increase to reputation gain should now work correctly while in a Draenor dungeon or raid. Achievement Filling the Ranks: Players that have already completed the criteria to obtain this achievement prior to a hotfix from July 21st should now correctly receive credit for the achievement.

Last week was a busy one for the BlizzPro crew, particularly on the Hearthstone front. With the introduction of the Grand Tournament new cards and mechanics are being introduced all over the place and we’re doing our best to keep you updated on the latest news.

Exploring Draenor: The Blood Moon

by Malon on

Exploring Draenor delves into the hidden places of the world that will one day become Outland. From the volcanic landscape of Frostfire to the gloomy dells of Shadowmoon, these articles are your guide to events that are off the beaten path. Location: Zeth’gol Rewards: Vial of Red Goo You’ve probably heard the yells from Hellfire Citadel, as the various bosses inside summon their creations to stalk Tanaan Jungle. Siegemaster Mar’tak positions Doomroller outside the gates of the citadel, and the spawn of Kormrok, Terrorfist, marauds near the Iron Front. What you might not realise is that Kil’rogg Deadeye – or, more accurately, his tribe of Bleeding Hollow orcs – are also represented in the zone-wide announcements. Periodically, the Blood Moon will rise above Zeth’gol, in the north-western part of the zone. What the purpose of this massive orb of blood is we have no idea, but you can benefit from it all the same. When ...

Here’s what we know. Blizzard is throwing a media event at gamescom 2015. Some fansites have been invited to the event, so it adds fuel to the fire that Blizzard is going to announce something notable. However, there’s a few other pieces to that: The event is happening on the 5th, which is a press-only day. This is consistent with the announcement of Reaper of Souls back in 2013. Filming the press conference has been banned. There were livestreams of the 2013 conference. Now maybe there’s some kind of explanation for why they’d ban filming the media briefing, but it’s a key difference between the circumstances when Reaper was announced and what’s happening right now. That alone isn’t enough reason to confirm or deny the possibility that Blizzard could announce WOWX6, however; recall that immediately following the announcement of Overwatch at last year’s BlizzCon, there was a closed-door blacked-out media press conference where the ...

Ars Arcanum: Pride of Cassius

by Hotstreak on

Books have often been society’s only bastion of light for passing along knowledge that would otherwise be lost to time or convoluted by the oral tradition. In order to provide new and old adventurers with as much knowledge of what to expect on their journey in Sanctuary, we created this tome of knowledge – Ars Arcanum. We will regularly feature a Legendary weapon or armor piece, discussing its stand-alone powers and capabilities, as well as how it may synergize with new builds or other items. I remember back in the days of Inferno, Ignore Pain was pretty much a must have in your build. Since Inferno difficulty forced you to squeeze out any extra defensive buffs that you possibly could, IP was always a great choice for that extra boost. But ever since the difficulty curve was changed to be less brutal, there wasn’t a huge need for a skill like IP ...

The hype continues to build for Overwatch with the announcement of Soldier: 76, Hearthstone’s got tournaments, fireside gatherings, and more announcements of things yet to come.

Blizzard SDCC Panel Revelations

by Crow on

As has been standard for Blizzard over the last few years, the studio sends reps (often in the form of resident thunder god Chris Metzen but also including other company deities like Sr. Toys/Collectibles Manager Jason Bischoff) to run a panel at San Diego Comic Con 2015, where new merchandise and upcoming plans are discussed. It’s not usually a lot of game-related stuff, but with the movie in the pipeline and with how much non-game stuff is associated with all of Blizzard’s franchises, it’s usually an interesting experience, and from the reports we’ve gotten so far, this year did not disappoint. Check out the highlights below. More information on specific projects should be available soon, and once we know, you’ll know. Warcraft The previously-announced Warcraft Chronicles hardcover series is now being billed as a three-book series. A video preview for the first book, which is due out in November, was shown at the ...
