The Eternal Conflict Nears An End

by Alebeard on

After a seemingly endless struggle, the Eternal Conflict is nearing an end, at least as far as the denizens of the Nexus are concerned. Blizzard announced today that the Eternal Conflict event will be concluding on September 8th.  This means that you have less than a week to complete the special event quest to Kill 50 Treasure Goblins and receive the limited edition portait.  It also means that Diablo 3 players will no longer receive a free Diablo Hero upon logging into Heroes of the Storm.  Players who have completed these promotions prior to the end of the event will continue to have access to the portrait and the Diablo Hero. Other features of the Diablo crossover event, such as Malthael’s Phantom and the Treasure Goblin mount, will continue to be available after the Eternal Conflict officially concludes.  It was mentioned that the Treasure Goblin mount will be going away ...

The Hero League changes just keep coming. Last week, the Heroes team announced that they would be reinstituting bonus points for Ranks 5-1.  They also revealed their plans for upcoming changes to placement matches, and initial ranks are determined. Today, Spyrian released a news post detailing changes to party size options for Hero League.  In the future, players will only be able to solo or duo queue for Hero League.  Players will continue to be able to queue for Team League as full five man groups.  Most other MOBAs already have similar restriction on their Ranked play modes, and this has been a frequently requested feature by some members of the Heroes community.  These changes will take effect with the the next game update. The fact that the announcement is worded as next game update, and not next patch, is interesting.  Recently, major patches have been released on a six ...

How Hero League Drafting Works

by Alebeard on

Last week we talked about how to get ready for Hero League.  This week we are going to cover how the draft process works so that you will know what to expect when you hit that Ready button for the first time.  This article focuses on the mechanics of the draft, and is geared towards new players who are looking to start playing Hero League.  Next week we will step it up, and talk about draft strategies, and the specific team compositions that you will see. When you start playing Hero League you will initially be unranked.  You will need to complete twenty placement matches before you are assigned to a Rank.  It is important to remember that your Rank is determined by your hidden MMR, not your placement match record.  the term MMR refers to an internal rating that compares your skill level to that of other players.  Your ...

 

Nazeebo Build: Insecticide

by balrogfanbp on

Nazeebo is the Witch Doctor representative from Diablo 3 who brings his jars of bugs, waves of frogs, and walls of zombies to the Nexus. During the recent patch there has been a massive power shift towards Nazeebo and he is currently enjoying a very high win rate. I’m here to give you the goods to help you take your witch doctor game to the next level. If you need to brush up on the basics of Nazeebo you can check out his BlizzPro hero page here. Basic Abilities Voodoo Ritual -(Passive Trait) This is what allows Nazeebo to be a great harasser. Make sure you don’t forget to toss basic attacks on the enemies and minion waves to maximize this talent. This also allows Nazeebo to sustain very well as long as you put the Voodoo Ritual on each creep before they die. For example if you kill an ...

Kharazim Patch: Winners and Losers

by Alebeard on

Now that we have had a week of Patch 13.0, also known as the Karazim Patch, it is time to continue our tradition of accessing who was helped and who was hurt by these changes.  Frankly, I was initially surprised at the amount of changes when this patch innitially hit the PTR, but I think this will be the norm going forward.  It seems as if Blizzard is sticking to their promise to deliver a new Hero every three to four weeks, with a major patch accompanying every other Hero release.  This means we should expect signifigant changes to be limited to every six weeks, with only bug and exploit fixes in between. Winners Kael’thas How can we not start with Kael’thas?  There was a large segment of the player pool who pronounced him dead as soon as they read that Ignite was being removed.  There was some logic to ...

 

Money Pig Almost Spent

by Alebeard on

If you have wanted to add the Money Pig to your stable of mounts, your time is running out.  This little piggie will be off the market as of September 1st.  He will return eventually, so keep that in mind if you are trying to decided which of the gold only mounts to purchase.  The Blackheart’s Doubloon mount will be added next week to make this decision even more difficult. There will also be a few other mounts rotating in and out of the Shop soon as well.  On September 8th, the Magic Carpet and Lunar Tiger mounts will be removed, and in their place the Dire Wolf and Cyber Wolf mounts will return. This is also your final reminder that the Nazeebra mount is being removed, along with the Nexus Bundle, on August 25th.  In case you aren’t good with dates, that is tomorrow!  Unlike the other mount changes, there ...
