Rockbiter and Windfury Weapon at the Same Time (or Flametongue or Frostbrand) Rockbiter and Windfury Weapon at the Same Time (or Flametongue or Frostbrand) We have a useful little discovery for enhancement Shamans in Classic, as you can combine the effect of Rockbiter Weapon with either Windfury Weapon , Flametongue Weapon or Frostbrand Weapon, so they're active at the same time! Spell batching makes this possible and it's not a universally useful technique, as it will spend a whole lot of mana, but there are plenty of situations where it might come in handy, from Vael, PvP or just the final burn phase of any boss fight if you have the mana to spare. Obviously Windfury is the best bet, as you can get all 3 of its swings with the extra 653 attack power from Rockbiter, packing quite a bigger punch.

Here's the quick video and text explanation, and thanks to GideonAI for the heads up!

Detailed Outland Topographic Map by Sturmbart Detailed Outland Topographic Map by Sturmbart It's time for more cartography as we move off-world! Sturmbart is continuing his efforts to map out all of WoW, and after recently having finished the whole of Azeroth, it's time to move on to other planets! He's starting with the present time/main universe version of Draenor, aka TBC's Outland and we get a new color palette to get that space vibe going as well. The city sizes are a bit more interpretative this time, for example while Shattrah is big, it doesn't seem to have that many inhabitants in the game, as Sturmbart comments.

Starting Zone Heroes: Goraks Guide to Classic Starting Zone Heroes: Gorak's Guide to Classic Gorak's back with another of his Classic "guides", as the brave Orc has managed to clear the starting zone and found life outside it can be... different! In a pretty accurate description of what it's like to leave the Valley of Trials and assume the rest of the game will follow suit, and is honestly one of the things I miss most about retail. The machinima itself also reminds me of the old-school Vanilla videos in its simplicitiy and really captures that vibe well.

The series has been going for 2 years now and is a pretty good watch so definitely check out some more of the 16 episodes made so far!

A Roguelike Challenge: 1 Life Naked MC and Gear Up Along the Way A Roguelike Challenge: 1 Life Naked MC and Gear Up Along the Way As the end of expansion lull is upon us, we should always remember there are many, MANY things to do in WoW that aren't just current content, and we have a really cool challenge/concept by Deededee everyone should take a look at! He's taken playing old raids to a whole new and fun level. The idea is quite simple and very roguelike: you start out naked in Molten Core and just gear up along the way. The catch is you stop if you die (although that part can be skipped if you're not a hardcore type of person) and tally all the drops you got, trying to get further and get some better stuff along the way.

This will certainly make transmog runs more fun, if you can stomach doing a few raids you don't need stuff from, but it really seems worth it.

Diablo 2 4K60 Upscaled Gameplay: 4 Acts Sorceress Diablo 2 4K60 Upscaled Gameplay: 4 Acts Sorceress The remaster-bait continues, as we have another 4K 60 FPS upscaled Diablo 2 video, but this time much more extensive, as the first one was only the first 15 minutes of the game. We see the sorceress go through all 4 of the base game's acts (and poke around vendors in act 5, just to get us teased). It's looking damn good and, as many community members have mentioned, this is pretty much what they'd want out of a remaster, just more modern graphics with maybe a touch of quality of life improvements, like the stash sizes.
