Doomfist is now live in Overwatch We’ve been looking forward to this day since the very first Overwatch trailer: Doomfist is finally playable in game. Stuck at work wishing you could play Doomfist? You can still read his comic and catch up on his lore while you wait. And with this shiny new hero comes a shiny new patch, featuring loot box...




Antorus, the Burning Throne raid testing begins this weekend on the 7.3 PTR Hot off the heels of the world-second kill of Mythic Kil’Jaeden, Blizzard has announced testing will begin for the WoW’s next raid, Antorus, the Burning Throne, starting this weekend. The testing will have scheduled Heroic-mode tests starting Friday at 1 p.m. Pacific, with a new boss available every hour. If testing on those bosses goes...

Defeat the Lich King on all Hearthstone classes for Young Arthas hero skin We know about the cards coming in the Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion for Hearthstone. But now, we’re hearing about new features and missions, and the biggest one is that you have to fight the Lich King himself. If you can manage to beat the Lich King on all nine Hearthstone classes, you’ll win...

The Queue: Same, again

Welcome back to The Queue, our daily Q&A feature for all of Blizzard’s games! Have a question for the Blizzard Watch staff? Leave it in the comments!

I don’t know who exactly piped up at Blizzard and said “Hey, you know what we need? A disco, right smack in the middle of the Auction House,” but they deserve a raise. Or cookies. Or something along those lines, because this was without a doubt the best mini-holiday in game so far. The place was packed all day long, the Karazhan-disco fusion music was amazing, and everyone was thrilled to be there. I don’t know about every weekend, but I wish this were a monthly event, like the Darkmoon Faire. It was nice to just ditch all Legion-defeating responsibility and go hang out and dance for a while.


BlizzCaps: Crib notes Submitter Tim had a little bit of difficulty on the Paladin Class Order Mount quest. His fellow Paladins suggested he check the ancient scrolls for guidance, but when he asked them to pull up Wowhead, he was met with only blank stares. Too bad Thottbot isn’t still around — that’s ancient by anyone’s standards. Want...




Do you like interacting with the game world? One of the things my wife and I get into arguments about when playing Diablo 3 is who gets to smash crates, barrels, and other destructible things. I argue that since I generate Fury on my Barbarian, I should get to. She has already destroyed them and moved on well by the time I make...

Garrosh Hellscream comes in like a ball that wrecks in his Hero spotlight Garrosh Hellscream will be making his Heroes of the Storm debut in the near future, and like all heroes, he’s received a hero spotlight to help get you pumped for his arrival. Oh, and obviously to give you a juicy preview of all his abilities. Most of Garrosh’s abilities are not exactly high-damage nukes, as...



Weekly world boss rotation won’t be random in 7.3 In patch 7.3, the world boss rotation will finally be on a set rotation. This is great news for anyone still trying to collect Artifact appearances or profession recipes. The rotation has been random so far, and it’s frustrating when you need the bosses for achievements. The lack of a set rotation has made several...

StarCraft’s patch 1.19 is the last major patch before StarCraft: Remastered Yes, you read that correctly. The original StarCraft game is still receiving updates, and its latest, patch 1.19, marks the last major patch it will receive before StarCraft Remastered launches later in August. Several changes appear to bring the game up to more modern, cross-game standards, especially when it comes to this thing called “Battle.net”...

Role Play: Roleplaying the extraordinary As I said when I started this column, you can roleplay whatever you want. But when you leap out of the realm of ordinary roleplay, you’ve got a difficult task ahead. The question of just how far you’ll go is entirely up to you -- but roleplay isn’t necessarily about you. So how do you come up with an unconventional character? And how do you roleplay that character, and get other people to participate?

Latest Heroes balance update reworks Stukov Keeping all of the heroes in Heroes of the Storm on par with one another is a constant balancing act, as indicated by regular balance patches. The latest batch of updates hits both Genji and Xul with some nerfs, cutting their health and increasing cooldown times. Though neither have complete reworks, players will probably feel...

The Queue: A score to settle

Goblins or Gnomes? The ultimate showdown… coming to a Queue near you… right now!

Okay. I admit I don’t exactly have a score to settle and it’s not exactly a showdown. Mostly I just think Gnomes are pretty great, and I hope you do too.


BlizzCaps: A natural combination I am the cat who walks by himself, and all places are alike to me. Especially now that I’ve found my sweet robot buddy. Now I can go anywhere I want without even having to get my paws dirty. And trust me, with some of the stuff you can step in around these wizards, licking...

Have you been playing a Seasonal Hero in Diablo? For some reason, I finally went ahead and started a Seasonal Hero in Diablo 3. Partially, it’s because my wife and I have been playing together and her running commentary over Facetime as we murder stuff is simply the best, but in general there’s something very fun about getting new abilities as you level and...
