Fans of Knives: November 14, 2018

BlizzCon has come and gone. The news for us was…well, energy regeneration and putting combo points back on the target are things that the WoW Classic team are working on. Many of us were there and it was fantastic to meet so many rogues. That’s pretty much it. There were plenty of good things…just nothing rogue specific.

Now post-BlizzCon game news. Um…well…there isn’t any. A few good things have been announced either at or since BlizzCon but nothing rogue. So much for us being center of the universe.

Things to check out anyway:

  • New cinematics: Lost Honor which continues the story of Saurfang, and the introduction to the new Warfront, Terror of Darkshore. I cannot gush about these enough. The cinematic and narrative teams at Blizzard have outdone themselves. Check them out on the World of Warcraft website.
  • New old audio books: Warcraft history buffs rejoice, Lord of the Clans and Rise of the Horde are now available at Audible, and Arthas is on the way. Whether you are new to Warcraft lore, or need to brush up, these are really special unabridged recordings read by author, Christie Golden. Let Christie tell you a story as you go about your business.
  • New old game: Warcraft III: Reforged will give us a new opportunity to explore our origins with a reimagined version of the classic RTS. As is their wont, Blizzard is going all out, updating and modernizing graphics, sound, features and more. Preorder this!
