News and Guides for World of Warcraft, Diablo 3, Heroes of the Storm, and Hearthstone

No New Set Dungeons in Season 19 No New Set Dungeons in Season 19 We're getting two new sets in patch 2.6.7 aka Season 19, with the Crusader and Monk getting upgrades, but it seems we're not getting their associated set dungeons. We may be seeing new ones in the future, but it seems they won't coincide with the introduction of each new set (as we're getting 2 new sets each season from this one forward).

Possible Leaks: Overwatch 2, Diablo 4 and Diablo 2 Remastered to Be Announced at BlizzCon? Possible Leaks: Overwatch 2, Diablo 4 and Diablo 2 Remastered to Be Announced at BlizzCon? We have a couple of weeks left until BlizzCon and the leaks and rumors have been heating up, with today's having at least a hint of credibility. It comes from streamer Metro_ow, and he's claiming to have a source that has given him a lot of info on the announcements and some game specifics for Overwatch 2 as well.

Why should he be considered credible? He's already leaked a number of things about Ashe from last year's BlizzCon, around a week before the actual reveal, with the info coming from the same source - "someone tied directly to a Blizzard dev". Now, obviously that doesn't mean his leaks are real this time around, but it at least separates him from the pack. But what exactly is he leaking?

Guide Writers Thoughts: What the Hotfix Tuning Numbers Mean Guide Writer's Thoughts: What the Hotfix Tuning Numbers Mean Yesterday's hotfixes introduced some big changes to the existing builds, with some favorite and very powerful items getting nerfed, so we though we'd talk to one of our guide writers, Motoko, to hear what's actually happened, as he tests the changes for upcoming guide updates.

We'll just go through all the hotfixes and hear what all those numbers actually mean. Obviously as the hotfix is still fresh, there's a lot of testing yet to be done, so these are just first impressions, but considering Motoko has a lot of experience and play time, they're definitely worth a read.

Nyalotha Allseer Mount in Patch 8.3 Ny'alotha Allseer Mount in Patch 8.3 Ny'alotha Allseer is a N'Zoth-themed mount added to the game in Patch 8.3. It is rewarded from a quest and could very well be the end-of-expansion reward for everyone, who defeats N'Zoth on Heroic difficulty before the next expansion, similar to Legion's Kirin Tor Summoning Crystal.

Hotfixes for October 17th: Legendary Tuning, Hex Nerf, Pet and Mech Buffs Hotfixes for October 17th: Legendary Tuning, Hex Nerf, Pet and Mech Buffs Today's hotfixes bring another huge round of legendary tuning, with nerfs to the massively powerful Lyuda, Lucian's Call, Flakker, Hellwalker, with buffs to many other weapons. The bigger news if that Hex grenade (the most powerful one in the game) also got a massive 70% nerf as well as a duration reduction, hitting both the Moze grenade and Amara Elemental Ricochet builds, with Firestorm also getting a 70% reduction.

We then have Vault Hunter adjustments, with big Iron Bear, pet and Digiclone health buffs, and a big improvement for shield boosters, as they're now an auto pickup, making those types of shields much more viable! We'll be updating our guides to include the changes soon.

As always, the changes will be live some time today before midnight CEST.

Explanation On Why Only 2 Classes Get New Sets this Season Explanation On Why Only 2 Classes Get New Sets this Season It seems the fact that only Crusaders and Monks are getting new sets is bothering a fair amount of people and Nevalistis has replied to a forum thread titled "2 out of 7 classes are getting love!?", which is a pretty ironic title considering Barbarians are getting quite some affection this season as well (I suppose it's only love if there's sets involved... typical materialists!!1).

The explanation goes into why this way of releasing updates to the classes was chosen and what other ways were planned and then scrapped (although the reason behind the initial limitation is clearly because there aren't that many devs working on D3, as is to be expected - and hopefully the rest are all on D4):

Free Character Moves US/OC Realms: October 17th Free Character Moves US/OC Realms: October 17th There's a whole lot more free moves coming tomorrow from pretty much all US and OC servers, in addition to the already ongoing moves to Latin American and Brazillian realms. While the transfers start tomorrow, there's no end date listed, however moves will be closed as soon as a target realm reaches high population. With layering being removed completely soon, and already at a bare minimum now, these moves come at a pretty good time. WoW Classic WoW Classic Oct 17, 2019 at 00:06 by Starym
