Season 5 Ending Next Week, Bluddshed's Starter Builds for S6

New Warlock Card Reveal - Possessed Villager; Druid Spell - Wisps of the Old Gods, Soggoth the Slitherer

HotD Finals & New Observer Interface, Murky In-Depth Tips & Tricks

Overwatch Patch 28484 - New Genji Skin, Competitive Splash Screen

Legion - Resto Shaman Artifact Effect
Resto Shaman also get an effect from their Artifact weapon in Legion, though it isn't as exciting as the Fire mage effect. After you have been idle for several minutes, your character assumes the pose shown below and a blue swirl appears underneath you.



Legion - Character Trial Boost
The latest Legion build added some interesting strings that point to players being able to boost a character to level 100 to try it for a limited duration. Unfortunately the process isn't enabled on the Legion Alpha right now, so we don't have more details.

This is a bug - Fury of the Eagle should not be consuming your stacks of Mongoose Bite. Thanks for the heads up! (WarcraftDevs)

Weird/stupid question: What's the bulk of quest design? What skills are needed?
it's about 50% spawning (creature placement/actions/flavor), 40% mechanics (building spells and gameplay) and maybe 10% writing. (DaveKosak)

Computers - Setup of the Month
Each month or so we will post a couple of hardware setups for those of you who are thinking of upgrading their computer!

This month
The current SSD prices are fairly flat right now, with most SSDs under $0.50 per gigabyte when on sale. New GPUs may be coming later this year.

Depending on how much you want to overclock, you may need to spend a bit more for a better CPU cooler like the NH-D15.

Unless you are doing a lot of video rendering or streaming, you do not need the 6700K and should spend that money elsewhere.

Make sure to keep your AMD and Nvidia drivers up to date.

Don't forget to visit the Computer Forum for any extra questions!

    Trial boost? I believe the end is near.

    I like the resto shaman pose, pretty cool. I really hope ele gets some sort of thunder effect or something. Could be interesting.

    trial a level 100 to see if you like the class/spec instead of boosting it to 100 and going, oh actually i don't like the way the class plays then you've wasted money.

    seems like common sense? try before you buy.

    It just means you can try out a class at max level, before making the decision of dedicating your time leveling it, or if you were boosting a char to begin with , this way you get better information on what is available to you. It's a quality of life change and will affect you in no way, unless you were planning to look into a new alt, or boosting a new char to 100.

    Or, you know.. maybe people want to test something before they commit to spending $60? Just a thought.

    "Insensitive". We're now catering to people knowingly breaking the law? So they don't get triggered?

    No, we're not.

    Seriously?
  1. Rekuja's Avatar
    I like the trial idea, I'm sure they will have their own little instanced area to practice on dummies or something, just to try the class out.. I see no harm in this. People always react with guns blazing before they even think about it...

    R.i.p Nost, it was really fun seeing those 2k people in front of orgrimmar before the very end. Had like 2fps lol.

    I really like the trail option. I leveled for example a warlock and a shaman, it was fun while leveling but i didn't like them on max level, so i stopped playing them. It could have saved me lots of time if i could just try them in a trail.

    Think of all the time you'll have now to play Wildstar. It's the closest you'll get to vanilla wow and it's not illegal! Yay!

    Assuming this trial thing happens (I think it's a good idea overall), really hope this part is just a beta thing...
    This specialization isn't available for a Boosted character. You'll be able to switch to this specialization later.
    In a time that 90% of our class abilities are locked to certain specs, what's the point of giving people a character trial if you don't let them try the spec they want?

    WoW private server that became obscenely popular and thus gained enough attention from blizz to be shut down. As per usual the blizzdrones on here will gobble up anything that gives them a reason to spite someone having fun outside the current retail expansion of WoW.

    Rofl that pose. I'm looking forward to flying/walking around Dalaran and see praying shamans everywhere.
