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:

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.

      I’m in the process of rerolling a tank. My question is: How do I know if I’m doing a good job?

      I currently play a hunter and as a DPS the metrics that I use to judge my performance are fairly simple. If I’m consistently sitting in the top X percentile of DPS for my spec and gear; and sitting in at least the bottom half of the raid for damage taken, I can be relatively sure that I’m doing good DPS and doing the mechanics well too.


       
      However, as a tank this falls apart. Damage taken and even damage mitigated are poor metrics because I need to know if I’m taking and avoiding/mitigating the right damage. For example, I may mitigate 95% of the total damage in a fight, but if the 5% that I don’t mitigate is the 5% that is vital to avoid then I have done a poor job. Damage taken is bad because I may only be sitting at the top of damage taken because I didn’t switch when I needed to, therefore taking unnecessary damage.

      Staying alive is a poor metric too, just because I’ve stayed alive doesn’t mean that I’ve done a good job. What if I’m only alive because a healer needed to make the choice to keep me alive while I was taking excess damage and sacrifice one or more DPS in the process.

      Keeping threat and tank switching etc at the right time is bad as well because there is more to tanking than just mechanics.

      I’ve done some reading and apparently there is or was a ranking system for tanks in wowlogs. But after a long look I can’t find it and all the posts relating to this were over 12 months old, so I assume it’s been removed.

      I’ve also spoken to our MT about this and his response was ‘I don’t know’. As someone who wants to preform at the highest level possible, I find it unacceptable to not be able to judge how I’m preforming relative to my past self (am I improving?) and other people in a similar position.

      So, how do I judge if I’m doing a good job tanking and what areas need to be improved?

      Since 7.1.5 it seems that Cinderstorm and/or Meteor are valid options and often outperform Kindle. 
      How to properly include them in you rotation? Would be great if the guide would highlight the use of them.
      Questions like:
      Cinderstorm > Rop > Combustion > Instant Pyro > and so on  , does this really work to get 5 stacks of pyretic incantation? Cinderstorm on cooldown or only as filler if FB is on CD with HS up? When to use Meteor in Single Target Rotation?

      Hi everybody!
      As a Hearthstone player I have now choosen a better alias than POGSZ that also includes what I am doing together with my kids.
      So from now on I will refer to #jobsdone! (go figure where that come from) ;-)
      Anyway, I still appreciate hugely your support and help in my streams to analyse my game play and give me advice's that helps me get the job don! ;-)

      Here are my videos and streams. The newest ones are on the top:
      Today I started to play this aggro shaman deck for the first time.  Thumbs up!

      Recorded proof for ya here.

      Out of boredom during long work shifts, I came with this idea to allow players to come up with their own concepts.
      In this thread you'll be free to create your own ideas of Heroes, Maps and skins. Shower thoughts are always nice, and I'd like to see your ideas. Plus, who knows, maybe we can send this to Blizzard and light some bulbs.
      Allow me to start with my idea for a Hero I've been wanting to see for a long time:
      HERO: Broll Bearmantle
      ROLE: Multiclass (Warrior/Assassin/Support)
      ABILITIES:
      • Trait: Shadowmeld (30 sec CD)
      Broll slip into the shadows, entering in stealth for 5 seconds. As soon as activated, Broll becomes invulnerable for 1 second. Players can move while in Shadowmeld, however, at 50% movement speed.
      • Q Skill: Mangle (6 sec CD)
      Broll mangles the target with his fist weapons, dealing increased physical damage.
      • W Skill: Barkskin (15 sec CD)
      Broll's skin becomes as hard as bark, reducing all damage taken by 30%. It can be cast on an ally, however the effect is reduced to 15%. Can be used while stunned or feared.
      • E Skill: Rejuvenation (5 sec CD)
      Broll heals a target ally over time, for 15 sec.
      <This would basically function like Malfurion's Regrowth, but without the initial heal burst; however, the heal over time would be superior to Malfurion's.>
      • Z Mount: Travel Form (0 sec CD)
      Similarly to Rehgar, this is an instantly cast, where Broll shapeshifts into the Stag Form, increasing his movement speed by 20%. Other players can left click Broll and mount on him. Attacking while in this form causes Broll to slow opponents by 20% for 0.5 seconds, and causes him to revert to his normal form.
      __________________________________
      • Heroic Ability 1: Guardian Affinity
      Broll shapeshifts into a Bear permanently for the rest of the match. His health is increased by 50%, however, attack speed is reduced by 20%. <Similar to Varian's Protection Heroic>
      While in this form, his abilities change:
      • Trait: Shadowmeld > Frenzied Regeneration (45 sec)
      In addition to the stealth, also gives Broll a shield, but its CD is increased by 15 sec.
      • Q Skill: Mangle > Thrash (6 sec CD)
      Broll strikes all nearby enemies, dealing physical damage and slowing them for 30% and reducing their attack speed by 10%.
      • W Barkskin > Ironfur (30 sec CD)
      Broll's skin becomes as hard as iron, reducing all damage taken by 50%, however its CD is increased by 15 seconds. If cast on an ally, it will be default Barskin skill.
      • E Skill: Rejuvenation (5 sec CD)
      No changes.
      • Z Mount: Travel Form (0 sec CD)
      No changes.
      • R Skill: Might of Ursoc (30 sec CD)
      Broll invokes the spirit of Ursoc to deal damage and stun the primary opponent for 3 seconds, and nearby opponents are stunned by 1.5 seconds.
      __________________________________
      • Heroic Ability 2: Feral Affinity
      Broll shapeshifts into a Cat permanently for the rest of the match. His movement speed is increased by 15%, and his attack speed by 75%. However, his attack damage is reduced by 20%, and his health by 25%.
      While in this form, his abilities change:
      • Trait: Shadowmeld > Prowl (10 sec)
      It now permanently puts Broll in stealth until he attacks or is attacked. He can now move at normal speed while in stealth, but no longer becomes invulnerable as soon it is activated.
      • Q Skill: Mangle > Rake (6 sec CD)
      Broll rakes the opponent dealing high physical damage and causing a bleed effect that causes the opponent to take damage over 5 seconds. The damage of Rake is doubled while in stealth.
      • W Barkskin
      No changes.
      • E Skill: Rejuvenation (5 sec CD)
      No changes.
      • Z Mount: Travel Form (0 sec CD)
      Broll becomes a cheetah instead of a stag. The movement speed is increased to 30%, but players can longer mount on Broll.
      • R Skill: Tiger Fury (60 sec CD)
      Broll goes on a Frenzy, increasing all damage done by 15% for 8 seconds, and causing Rake to deal its bleed as instant damage.
      __________________________________
      • Heroic Ability 3: Restoration Affinity
      Broll's mana regeneration is increased by 15%, however, his attack damage is reduced by
      While in this form, his abilities change:
      • Trait: Shadowmeld > Renewal (30 sec)
      It also instantly heals Broll by 15% of his maximum health, but its cooldown is increased by 20 seconds.
      • Q Skill: Mangle > Typhoon (8 sec CD)
      Broll strikes the opponent with his fists, dealing small damage knocking them back. It also causes a small burst of wind that pushes all nearby enemies slightly. However, its cooldown is increased by 2 seconds.
      • W Barkskin
      No changes.
      • E Skill: Rejuvenation > Lifebloom (7 sec CD)
      Each healing tick is increased by 0.5% over 15 seconds, and after it expires, it blooms, instantly healing by a large ammount. However, its cooldown is increased by 2 seconds.
      • Z Mount: Travel Form (0 sec CD)
      No changes.
      • R Skill: Wild Growth (60 sec CD)
      Broll heals the entire party instantly for a small ammount, followed by a large ammount over 7 seconds that decays per tick. Global range.
      __________________________________

      This is just a brainstorm, like the title suggests. A lot could be polished or changed. I considered concepting the idea of having Rage and Energy for the Bear and Cat forms, respectively, but I think this would overcomplicate things. I am not sure if Shadowmeld should be a trait or a separate skill (assigned to the 1 key).
      Maybe Broll isn't the best pick for it, since he is probably just Guardian lorewise, but I couldn't think of another remarkable Druid.
