Demon Hunter PvP in Legion Alpha

Demon Hunters will be the new hotness at the launch of Legion. They are the new “hero” class with all sorts of interesting abilities, not to mention the sexy tattoos and horns. The question is – just how cool and fun, etc, are these DH’s going to be when they step into a Battleground at end game? How will Demon Hunters hold up against various other classes in PvP?

As a surprise to no one, Bajheera took a level 110 Demon Hunter out for a PvP spin and I think he feels they’re all right. Maybe. Check out his video and decide for yourself.

Legion Unholy DK Talents and Abilities

I know this video is yesterday’s news. Literally. It just came out yesterday. But with job, and life, and job, I didn’t get a chance to sit down and look at my Youtube feed. Which is always fun, because if it wasn’t for Youtubers and Twitchers (that can’t be the right term for Twitch TV people – sounds more like someone going through drug withdrawal), there would be almost zero things to talk about in World of Warcraft.

Anyhow, Bajheera gave the Unholy DK a spin on the Legion alpha. He shares with us the talents and abilities of the Unholy DK as they stand currently. Of course this could mean nothing by the next patch. We’re talking about alpha testing here. Shit happens between alpha and live. I’d be happy if they still had an Unholy DK as an option by the time Legion goes live.

So check it out, and see what might(?) be coming for the Unholy Death Knight (maybe?)

Windwalker Monk Artifact Quest

The Fist and the Furious.

 

Bajheera has been busy.

His Royal Swollness has been playing many classes in the Legion alpha, checking out artifact quests, class halls, and overall gameplay. When I saw his playthrough of the Fury Warrior it didn’t surprise me, since his main is a Warrior (as are several alts). But when I saw him testing the gameplay on a Windwalker Monk, it certainly got my attention. In fact, watching the playthrough may help sway the decision from my Twitter poll results.

So here it is – the Artifact Quests, Class Hall, and some sweet gameplay from the Windwalker Monk in Legion!

To say that, news-wise at least, that World of Warcraft is in a bit of a dry spell is like saying that a summer in Death Valley isn’t quite sweater weather. Understatement for the win!

Unless you’re trying to get a moose mount, there isn’t a whole lot that has people glued to the game. At least, not in Warlords of Draenor. There are those blessed souls (Twitch Streamers, I believe they’re called) that have access to the Legion alpha. And boy howdy they’re hitting it like hard and milking it for every drop of content that they can. Wowhead already has an extensive Legion Database that covers things like Demon Hunters, Artifact Talents, and screenshots of various new zones. And that’s just the tip of the information iceberg!

Many streamers are posting their experiences online. Bajheera recently posted a video regarding the Artifact Quest, Artifact Talents, Class Hall, and even some gameplay footage of the Legion’s Fury Warrior! Knowing that Bajheera loves him some Warriors, I was waiting for a video like this from him. The man delivered. Check out Bajheera’s first look at Fury Warrior in Legion!

Bajheera Discusses Death Knights in Legion

So listen up Rokkstars, let’s all take a breath and not lose our minds for a second. What am I referring to, like, specifically this time? Well, Blizzard has recently outlined the proposed changes to various classes once Legion comes around. Now let’s remember that the beta has not even been launched yet, so some of these changes may not even happen. Let’s also remember that many people are outraged, or confused, because other people are outraged and confused and they themselves don’t know just how earth-shattering these changes might be.

I prefer to have a voice of reason explain these things. I like to hear from someone who not only is knowledgeable, but can speak to me in terms I can understand. Dumb it down for me. I don’t have a PhD in Min-Maxing or Theorycrafting.

Bajheera (@BajheeraWoW on the Twitter), he of PVP and Warcraft Hosting duties, knows a thing or two about Warriors. We all know this. What you may not know is that he’s also pretty well versed when it comes to playing a Death Knight. Witness now while he discusses the upcoming changes to the Death Knight class in Legion. Take it away, Baj!

 

 

I think I’m looking forward to playing my Death Knight Deathrokk in Legion. I suspect, should I improve my gaming rig, that I may also try to get onto a raiding team.  Why? Because Death Knight’s Tier 19 armor looks fifty shades of badass.
