I keep trying to find words that could describe the amount of positive feedback I receive from this community.

Every week I gather these questions, I run these tests, I create these clips, I create these videos.
And when a new video is ready for release, that is the highlight of my week.
 

It is such a huge satisfaction (you have no idea!) to see such a good response from the community.

Now I need to stop blabbering or I will start sounding like a old nostalgic man.



In this week's episode we feature Malfurion, Zeratul, Stitches, Zagara and a pinch of general spells interactions!

As always a huge "thank you" goes to Teiwaz and Exvin, without whom I couldn't run these tests and this show.

Hope you guys enjoy it, much <3

Hello everybody!

This week we feature Abathur, Stitches, the talent Storm Shield and Sylvanas.

And boy do we go big on Sylvanas!

Her Haunting Wave rose many questions in the community, and I have to say it is such a unique spell that I don't have all the answers myself. I will continue to run tests on it to unveil all the mysteries!

As always, I have to thank Teiwaz and Exvin for being the wonderful people they are, and you guys for all your support and feedback and questions.

I could never be able to do this without any of you.

Hope you enjoy this week's episode, much <3

It is that time again!

This week we had a new addition to the Heroes of the Storm roster, and boy did he make a big impact on the community!

Fan favorite, bearer of the "Loki effect", fire mage extraordinaire, it is the one, the only
Kael'thas Sunstrider!

Being his release week, and being such a big name in the hearts of many WarCraft players, it only felt appropriate to dedicate an entire episode to the Sun King himself.

Talent explanations, combos theorycrafting and a super fast Lightning round at the end!

As always, a huge "thank you" goes to Teiwaz and Exvin, for letting me fry them over and over with my Pyroblast.

Hope you guys enjoy it, mucho amor.

SunGlare.

A week late, due to my Hard Drive exploding on me, it is finally here!

 

To celebrate the game's launch, I've decided to dedicate a series of episodes to basic game mechanics.

 

In this first installment I will talk about on of, if not THE most important aspect of Heroes of the Storm: Experience Gain.

 

In Part One, I will explain Minions and Towers Experience gain.

 

In Part Two (Coming next week, so stay tuned!) I will talk about Mercenaries, Hero Kills and long range XP farming.

 

Thank you all so much for the support you have shown me in these months.

 

Whenever I release a new video I always look forward for your feedback, to improve myself and the show more and more.

 

As usual, you can contact me at my email: 

 

starcastreplay@gmail.com

 

Or on Social Media:

Oh boy, part 2 of our Experience gain Special!

 

 

It is time to discover how do Mercenary camps and Hero kills fit into the equation, and if it is possible to reliably farm experience from a distance!

 

 

This Science of the Storm special took more time and effort then all my other episodes, so I really hope you guys enjoy it!

 

 

My thanks, this time around, go to Santobi, a wonderful human being that helped me in some of these tests.

 

 

And, of course, thanks to all of you that keep watching, sharing and overall enjoying my videos. 

 

You are the fuel that keeps me going!

 

 

 

Until next time, much love. 

 

 

SunGlare.

Ever wondered if there is a vertical dimension in HOTS?

Or what happens when you knockback a player from two different directions at the same time?

Well, wonder no more! The answers are here!

 

What? You never wondered about those questions? Well, submit your own then! biggrin.png

This week the spotlight is on Stitches, Zeratul, Brightwing & Falstad, Sonya, Anub'arak and Blood for Blood!

 

As always a huge thank you to Teiwaz and Exvin. I have to pay them in coffee to keep them up to the task.
 

Experience special was fun, but it's time Science came back in its original form!

This week I'm all about meat! And maybe Meatloaf. But just because he's a funny guy.  Also, the Butcher!

Yep, with the Butcher's release, it figured I had to do a Butcher's Special episode!

This week we focus on Ruthless Onslaught and Lamb to the Slaughter, two new mechanics added into the game! 
And boy are there interesting interactions about these ones!

As always, my deepest thanks to Teiwaz and Exvin. They are amazing and you people should love them too!

Working in the summer is hard, especially when you have to close yourself in the recording booth (my room) with no air conditioning and 35° Celsius. 

But that will not stop me for long! and Science is back! 

This week is all about Leoric, and we might even unveil something pretty neat about stacking effects in the game! We will have to use... MATH! 

Hope you guys enjoy, and sorry again for my long time off!

Kharazim is the first support to be released in more than a year.
You can bet your teeth that he is going to roundhouse kick his way into the meta! 
 
Taking his rightful place with force like it's Fist of the North Star! Eeeekoo!
 
A big thank you to everyone who submitted a question and to Teiwaz and Exvin for helping me out with the tests.

You know what time it is?

It is Rexxar Special Time!

Yes indeed, the Champion of the Horde couldn't go without his own Science of the Storm episode.

Today we unveil a lot of hidden and somewhat controversial mechanics reguarding the half-ogre, including interactions with his best friend / love interest Misha!

So, saddle up and get ready to be taken into a science ride with SunGlare!

As always, a huge thank you goes to everyone who submitted and to Teiwaz and Exvin for helping me out week after week.

      Hey guys,
      Before you start any transmog farm ensure you have the following addons:
      https://mods.curse.com/addons/wow/lootappraiser
      https://mods.curse.com/addons/wow/tradeskill-master
      The farm i will be doing is located in the vanilla blackwing lair raid,
      This can be done with only a few characters as you require 2 things:
      - A way to drop combat such as invisibility or feign death
      - Magical damage such as arcane explosion for mages or hunter trap 
      the best option is still to use mage and even better would be a nightelf mage as you would have shadowmeld and invisibility.
      A detailed video on any information you may need.
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fiboRlLf-zY
      Thanks for your time and i hope you get some nice stuff.

      "For AoE there are two options. The first of these is Loramus Thalipedes' Sacrifice, further increasing the power of  Fel Rush for each subsequent target you charge through, though recent changes have diminished how powerful this is. 7.2 has extended this to apply with the first target hit, but are still unremarkable."
      This may sound stupid but I was hoping someone could just help me clarify this last sentence of this section. "7.2 has extended this to apply with the first target hit, but are still unremarkable." I'm a bit confused as to what this means. Is this sentence saying that the damage is "unremarkable" in a good way? Or bad way? I've just received the legendary boots and am trying to see if they're a good choice in fights with a lot of adds. 
      Thank you for your time.

      Hi, boys and girls!
      I recently played Evo-Shaman again (Brian Kiblers version basically), after having a lot of fun (and frustration) at the beginning of Whispers of the old Gods with an Evo-Deck and trying the Jade version in Mean Streets of Gadgetzan. But all the time I played it, it felt like I had a lot of bad luck with Evolve. Always getting something worse than I had before. So now I tried to prove myself wrong by doing some math (or counting). And I want to share my results with you! Enjoy!
       
      First off the five different classes:
      Bomb : possibly gamewinning. Overwhelming stats and/or powerful abilities. The best you can get for this price (e.g. Succubus, Savannah Highmane, Aya Blackpaw, Cairne Bloodhoof)
      Better : better stats than before (e.g. 2/3 from evolving a Totem) or a some kind of useful effect (e.g. Deathrattle) (e.g. Kindly Grandmother, Ornery Direhorn, Argent Commander)
      Mediocre : underwhelming stats or a downside / probably useless effect. (e.g. Scavenging Hyena, Frozen Crusher, Cabal Shadow Priest)
      Bad : worse than before. Terrible stats compared to other cards of the same cost (e.g. Grimestreet Outfitter, Nerubian Prophet)
      Awful : cards that can make you loose the game, are entirely useless in most situations or have extremly bad stats (e.g. Doomsayer, Ancient Watcher, Big-Time Racketeer)
       
      And some important things to considerate:
      cards are evaluated like if you are ahead or equal to your opponent (e.g. Abomination is Aweful)
      cards with useful effects are evaluated compared to an every day situation with a somewhat aggressive Evolution-Shaman-Deck. Likewise minions like The Voraxx are Bad, because you will not be able to use there ability.
      Minions with one Health are most of the time Bad
      Minions are compared to other minions you can get. Likewise nearly any 6-drop is better than the 2/2 from Doppelgangster but getting a Fight Promoter is still bad.
      Minions are partly evaluated like you would evolve them at the end of your turn and/or after you played them (so with not much mana left), as you most of the time would do. Likewise minions with triggered abilities like Gadgetzan Auctioneer are most of the time Bad.
      Of course Battlecries doesn't matter at all.
      Jades can get pretty much any manacost, so they fit everywhere.
      Aya Blackpaw is evaluated like if you get her while playing other Jade-cards in your deck (as you normally do in Evo-Shaman) otherwise she is mediocre.
      Finally some cards are very debatable and fit more in between classes, so you might come up with different results sometimes (e.g. Nat Pagle)
       
      Evolve List
      Instructions
      --------------------------------
      Costs of the minion you want to evolve (examples in common Evo-Shaman-Decks) →
      Class (e.g. Better) Number of cards ( I = one card, IIIII = 5 cards) (Best / Worse cards you can get) [chance of getting something aweful in %] - total number

      1-Mana (HP-Totems, Murloc-Tokens, Fire Fly, Patches the Pirate, Bloodsail Corsair) →

      Better IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII - 30
      Mediocre IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII I - 31

      Mediocre IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII I - 26
      Bad IIIII IIII IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII I - 31
      Awful I (Faceless Shambler) [1,11%] - 1
       
      Charge: 2 (2,2% chance)
      Taunt: 10 (11,2% chance)
       
      4-Mana (Jinyu Waterspeaker) (5/5 or 5/4 or 4/5 vanilla is mediocre)→
      Bomb IIIII I (e.g. Earth Elemental, Grimestreet Enforcer) - 6
      Better IIIII IIIII IIIII III - 18
      Mediocre IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII III - 23
      Bad IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII - 20
      Awful IIIII (e.g. Abomination, Bomb Squad) [6,94%] - 5
       
      Charge: 2 (2,8% chance) (Doomguard and Leeroy Jenkins)
      Taunt: 11 (15,3% chance)
       
      5-Mana (Doppelgangster) (5/5 vanilla is mediocre)→
      Bomb IIIII (e.g. Kabal Trafficker) - 5
      Better IIIII IIIII IIIII II - 17
      Mediocre IIIII IIIII IIIII IIII - 19
      Bad IIIII IIIII - 10
      Awful III (e.g. Big-Time Racketeer) [5,55%] - 3
       
      Charge: 2 (3,7% chance)
      Taunt: 9 + Hogger (16,7% chance)
       
      6-Mana (Thing from Below) (6/6 vanilla is mediocre)→
      Bomb I (Swamp King Dred) - 1
      Better IIIII IIIII II - 12
      Mediocre IIIII I - 6
      Bad IIIII IIIII I -11
      Awful I (Baron Geddon) [3,22%] - 1
       
      Charge: 0 (0% chance)
      Taunt: 4 (12,9% chance)
       
      Summary:
      It seems that you can get a lot of good stuff (mainly 2/3s and 3/2s) from evolving 1-Mana-minions like your totems and Primalfin-Murlocs. The danger of getting Doomsayer seems pretty low (1,3%).
      Evolving 2-Mana-Minions seems pretty good too. You get a decent chance of getting real big bombs and high-value-cards, but there is also some pretty bad stuff. Also you have to evolve your valuable totems (these are your 2-Mana-Minions most of the time).
      Evolving 3-, 4-, 5- and 6-Mana-minions are pretty much 50/50. They got a lot of awesome stuff, but also some pretty bad results.
      Especially the 5-Mana Evolve is important, since you will often get three 6-drops from one 5-drop (Doppelgangster), so getting a bunch of 4/5s is still awesome.
      Jades will probably turn into something similar or worse most of the time.
