World of Warcraft | Battle for Azeroth

At Blizzcon 2017, the new expansion for World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth has been announced. This expansion brings the story back to Alliance vs. Horde on new Continents with new Allied Races and Powers.

Currently only 4 races have been revealed:

  • Highmountain Tauren [H]
  • Lightforged Draenei [A]
  • Nightborne [H]
  • Void Elf [A]

Azeroth paid a terrible price to end the apocalyptic march of the Legion’s crusade—but even as the world’s wounds are tended, it is the shattered trust between the Alliance and Horde that may prove hardest to mend. As this age-old conflict reignites, join your allies and champion your faction’s cause—Azeroth’s future will be forged in the fires of war.

Hearthstone | Kobolds & Catacombs

The next expansion for Hearthstone: Kobolds & Catacombs has been announced at Blizzcon 2017.  The expansion is set to launch sometime in December and features 3 new cards types into the game: Legendary Weapons, Unidentified Items and Spellstones.

To start you on your quest, you’ll be granted one random Legendary weapon for FREE just for logging in after Kobolds & Catacombs is released.

Each Legendary weapon has its own flavor and unique power. While every class will be able to equip a weapon, those weapons will reflect the character of the classes that wield them. For example, the classes most known for spell-flinging in Hearthstone—Mage, Warlock, and Priest—each have weapons with 0 attack. They’re potent magical artifacts that grant vast powers, but they’re not meant to be swung in combat.

Another feature new in Kobolds & Catacombs are Unidentified Items Cards which acts as an RNG card that gives a random bonus. There are total 3 Unidentified Items Cards in Kobolds & Catacombs.

Lastly, Spellstones Cards are another new feature to be implemented into Hearthstone, Spellstone Cards have 3 tiers, each tier can be obtained by sacrificing Mana. Each Tier of Spellstone gives greater and greater bonuses.

Overwatch | Moira

Announced today at Blizzcon 2017 is Overwatch’s next upcoming hero Moira. She is another support that utilizes biotic abilities to heal her allies and hurt her enemies.

Moira’s biotic abilities enable her to contribute healing or damage in any crisis. While Biotic Grasp gives Moira short-range options, her Biotic Orbs contribute longer-range, hands-off damage and healing; she can also Fade to escape groups or remain close to allies in need of support. Once she’s charged Coalescence, Moira can save multiple allies from elimination at once or finish off weakened enemies.

Abilities

BIOTIC GRASP

Using her left hand, Moira expends biotic energy to heal allies in front of her. Her right hand fires a long-range beam weapon that saps enemies’ health, healing Moira and replenishing her biotic energy.

BIOTIC ORB

Moira launches a rebounding biotic sphere; she can choose between a regeneration effect that heals the allies it passes through, or a decay effect that deals damage to enemies.

FADE

Moira quickly teleports a short distance.

COALESCENCE

Moira channels a long-range beam that both heals allies and bypasses barriers to damage her enemies.
