Only difference / addition from Summoner PvE Skill Tree guide is that I have placed a second point into Beckon for the reset on Taunt.
Is chat important to you during dungeons? If not, you could simply leave an empty chat window there. (Or rid of it from your UI completely)
Otherwise, you can use that space to put the most recent tip that showed up on the screen, slightly dimmed to show that it was already communicated in a more forward manner.
My final recommendation, a bit more complex, would be to put pictures of the ability circles / rectangles from 6-man, so people have a visual reference when you mention these abilities. e.g. "Use counter when Minou summons shadow minotaurs" show the rectangle aoe indicator from Minou 6-man
Blizzard today announced Hearthstone’s next major expansion, Whispers of the Old Gods, which will come to PC, Mac, iOS and Android by or before mid-May.
Whispers of the Old Gods will not only introduce 134 new cards, but also Hearthstone’s Standard format, which limits the playable card pool to the most recent sets. As such, the expansion will play an especially pivotal role in Hearthstone’s competitive and constructed play for the foreseeable future.
Whispers of the Old Gods carries themes of corruption and villainy, as evidenced by cards like Polluted Hoarder and Validated Doomsayer. The set is centered around four Old Gods from Warcraft lore: C’Thun, N’Zoth, Yogg-Saron and Y’Shaarj.
C’Thun, a Legendary minion with a cumulative Battlecry effect, was revealed today. It stands to reason that the other gods will also appear as Legendaries, along with at least one unique Legendary for each of the game’s nine classes.
Ahead of the game’s “late April/early May” release, starting Monday, March 14 players can pre-order bundles of 50 Whispers of the Old Gods packs for $49.99. That's actually a significant discount, as $49.99 will usually only get you 40 packs. Pre-orders also include an exclusive card back (right).
WildStar developer Carbine Studios has let go of nearly half its staff following the cancellation of plans to release its sci-fi MMO in China.
The news comes to us from a forum post authored by publisher NCSoft, who said the layoffs stem from both the cancellation of WildStar’s Chinese release and the game’s overall performance since it launched in 2014. Notably, WildStar shifted from subscriptions to a free-to-play business model just six months ago.
“These kinds of decisions are exceptionally difficult,” NCSoft said. “The talented and passionate professionals who are impacted by these cuts have been valuable team members and respected colleagues. We wish everyone well for the future and will be providing severance and employment search assistance.”
It wasn't specified exactly how many employees have been cut, but sources close to Polygon suggest roughly 70 staff members were affected—around 40 percent of Carbine’s total workforce.
Nevertheless, NCSoft says they are committed to “operating and updating WildStar as a live game in the U.S. and Europe.”
“Over the next few weeks and months we will deliver a significant update to the game, kick off a variety of community events, and continue our work on new content that we will talk more about in the future,” the publisher added.
Collectible manufacturer First4Figures is working on a large figure of Dark Souls’ Knight Artorias.
The news comes to us from the official Dark Souls Twitter, along with early images of the final figure. The figure bears the same slumped posture that made Artorias so unnerving in Dark Souls’ DLC expansion, Artorias of the Abyss. There’s just something about that arm…

The Dark Souls Twitter later confirmed that the figure will be built in 1:4 scale, meaning it may be up to two feet tall. That’s considerably larger than the 10-inch Red Knight Statue included with Dark Souls 3’s collector’s edition, though the 15-inch Lord of Cinder figure in the extravagant prestige edition is more comparable. The Knight Artorias figure does not yet have a release date.
Big figures are nothing new to First4Figures, though this is the company’s first Dark Souls build. They’ve also immortalized characters from Metroid, Mega Man, The Legend of Zelda, Assassin’s Creed and more.
There are two types of modders. There are modders who put Star Wars helmets in XCOM 2 and crossbows in Fallout 4, and then there are modders who recreate entire levels, trailers and even games using game engines never designed for the task. YouTuber SuX Lolz :] is clearly in the latter category, as he took it upon himself to build the city and prologue from Mirror’s Edge inside Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
Lolz’s recreation is impressively accurate, bearing the same high-contrast, sterile aesthetic as Ubisoft’s first-person free-runner. The sheer size of the city, made possible in part by free assets Lolz found online, is impressive in its own right.
The level was designed as a “deathrun map,” Lolz said, and isn’t quite finished yet. A few secret rooms and weapons will be added in before its release. Lolz said he would also consider making a Black Ops 3 custom map should it ever receive mod tools. Perhaps a Mirror's Edge: Catalyst map?
Phil Spencer’s plans for the relationship between Xbox and Windows are slowly coming into focus. First, it was upgradable Xbox systems, then it wasn’t. Then it was Xbox games on PC, but not all of them. Now it’s the freedom to play on either platform but benefit from both.
In a recent interview with Polygon, Spencer clarified that PC gamers who aren’t involved with the Xbox brand may very well stay PC-only gamers, and that that’s fine.
“I was actually asked by somebody, ‘Did you do Forza 6: Apex as a way of teasing the PC gamers with how good Forza is so they’ll go buy an Xbox One?’” he said. “No. That’s not the plan. So they might not [buy an Xbox One], and I want that to be okay.”
“We’re gonna make the absolute best TV gaming console experience we possibly can,” Spencer continued, “and if you decide that you want a PC gaming rig and to have an Xbox One, the fact that Microsoft has a presence in both of those places is gonna make your life better.”
Spencer’s latest comments echo his previous suggestions regarding Windows and Xbox. The gist of Spencer’s plan, it seems, is that allowing Xbox to bleed into the Windows space will attract additional developers and, ultimately, benefit Xbox gamers with more games. Exactly how that will play out remains to be seen.
