Fun Fact About Hearthstones You Might Not Know

Recommended Posts

Did you know that HSs bind in the EXACT location the innkeepter WAS at the time of bindig, even if it was on a ship that is no longer there?

In the "Wow, I've been playing since day 1 and I really should have known this but never did" category, today I found out that when you bind yourself to an Inn the game remembers  not only the way you were facing, but also EXACTLY where the innkeeper was at the time of binding. Redditor BFGfreak learned that the hard way:

Apparently, way back when, it was also possible for members of the opposing faction to kite an innkeeper a long way away and then when they disengaged you could bind in the place they left him before he ran away. Some people in the reddit thread even mention having used it to get to Molten Core faster during progress!

So, hands up, make me feel stupid and tell me how many of you already knew this?

I've definetly heard about this, but of course, no proofs. 

Thumbs up for a old school meme!

I should also point out that the title is a huge clickbait for any Hearthstone player around here who doesn't spend a lot of time reading titles. A smart move, shame that I can't upvote this twice.

I always knew this as well. There aren't too many innkeepers who move, but i can think of atleast one from long ago, the most recent one is the leader of the nightfallen who moves downstairs. you still appear upstairs if you hearthed her before though.

Actually I really tried hard to differentiate this from an actual Hearthstone news article but all the other titles didn't fit :( I was going to call it "your hearthstone item" but that just sounded weird.

This was what I thought when clicking! :p

Nonetheless, I'm glad I did click, it's a cool article and a nice nostalgia kick.

I knew the process used to be more finicky but I had never heard about the kiting to raid entrance thing. It's very clever. I like when people find clever uses for in game things. Some blizz doesn't mind some they do XD.

If only we had ever found a use for abusing the tiny, unkillable bunny raid markers in the old fights.

      Finally Deathwing's size is getting the appropriate number of pixels to represent him as he was meant to be! We have two new AI upscaled videos to share today, starting with the into to Cataclysm, aka the Deathwing blows everything up show. There's also the ill-fated Starcraft: Ghost 3rd person shooter that was cancelled, but not before we got a pretty solid cinematic out of it, featuring the Overming, a whole lot of marines and zerg and, ofc course, Nova.

      Black Dragonscale Backpack is a cosmetic item sold by Wrathion in Patch 8.3. The cloak is actually a Wrathion-themed backpack that can be used for transmog.
      The backpack is very similar to the Vulpera Heritage Rucksack, used in the Vulpera Heritage Armor in Visions of N'Zoth.

      When you unlock Horrific Visions in the upcoming content update, you can talk to Wrathion who sells various items for Coalesced Visions and Corrupted Mementos including:
      Vessel of Horrific Visions for 10,000 Coalesced Visions; Gouged Eye of N'Zoth for 25,000 Corrupted Mementos; Black Dragonscale Backpack (new) for 40,000 Corrupted Mementos; Wicked Swarmer for 100,000 Corrupted Mementos. Related 8.3 Build 32805 News
      Veteran of the Fourth War Flavor Spell for 2nd Generation of Death Knights Vulpera Bag of Tricks Racial Mistweaver Monk Essence Changes Death Knight Eyes Update

      Veteran of the Fourth War is a new spell intended for the second generation of Death Knights created in Patch 8.3. The flavor spell is in place to reflect the end of the Battle for Azeroth War Campaign in front of the Gates of Orgrimmar ([error]). It works exactly as Veteran of the Third War for existing Death Knights.
      Players who pre-ordered Shadowlands will be able to create Allied Race and Pandaren Death Knights in Visions of N'Zoth. There will be a new intro with Bolvar and Blizzard has updated their eye glow multiple times on 8.3 PTR to bring it more in line with the Lich King's eyes.

      Vulpera Bag of Tricks Racial Mistweaver Monk Essence Changes Death Knight Eyes Update
    • By Stan
      The Vulpera Bag of Tricks racial works just like Mole Machine, allowing your character to discover new harmful and helpful tricks in the open world. In this week's 8.3 PTR build, 3 new tricks have been added.
      When reaching into your Bag of Tricks, you can pick a helpful trick to heal your allies or a harmful one to deal damage to your enemies.

      New characters start with Healing Vial and Corrosive Vial. This week, Blizzard added Holy Relic, Flames of Fury, and Sinister Shadows on 8.3 PTR. We will be able to discover up to 13 tricks in the future according to WoWDB.
      Helpful Tricks
      Healing Vial - Heals a friend for [ Greater of {270% of Spell Power} or {270% of Attack Power * pctD * (1 + 0)} ] Nature. Share the wealth! Holy Relic (new)- Heals a friend for 28. Share the wealth! Harmful Tricks
      Corrosive Vial - Splash your enemy with corrosive fluid, dealing [ Greater of {180% of Spell Power} or {180% of Attack Power * pctD * (1 + 0)} ] Nature damage. A good reason not to drop your bag! Flames of Fury (new) - Blast your enemy with the FLAMES, dealing [ Greater of {180% of Spell Power} or {180% of Attack Power * pctD * (1 + 0)} ] Fire damage. Sinister Shadows (new) - Torment the enemy with sinister power, dealing [ Greater of {180% of Spell Power} or {180% of Attack Power * pctD * (1 + 0)} ] Shadow damage. Check out our Visions of N'Zoth hub to learn more about Patch 8.3.

      While Shadowlands is looking really good and most of the community seems really hyped for it, the intro cinematic was a bit more divisive. With Sylvanas trampling Bolvar with relative ease, a lot of players have been voicing their dissatisfaction over how the fight went, or at the very least at how it was presented, with the Banshee Queen seeming a tad overpowered. But in comes Kirill Stepanov with his re-imagining of how the fight went down, with Bolvar earning his title this time around:

      Now sure, technically Sylvanas could still get out of that particular situation, but even if she did and won in the end, we really got no feel for Bolvar's power (not to mention the army at his command), so a bit of a bigger struggle would have been nice and this piece really showcases that. As you'd imagine the image is very popular on the WoW reddit and it would be nice if Blizzard took note of the, ahem, one-note direction some of the story elements are going. Sure, they have to set up the Shadowlands expansion somehow and cinematics can't last 10+ minutes, but just making things happen because they need to for the plot to progress is really bottom-of-the-barrel storytelling and hopefully the next expansion will be above that.
      Here's the cinematic itself, to remind us of how it actually went:
      Also, let's take a look at a few other impressive art pieces from Kirill Stepanov:

      "Survivors"

      "Start of Battle for Azeroth"

      "The Lord of the Infinite"
