Cheap Druid Deck for Heroic GW Faerlina

heroic faerlina druid deck

A cheap way to take out heroic faerlina if your druid is low level (mine was, at level 6)

Spammed low cost cards to prevent her arcane missiles from accumulating too much from a large hand, and had gurubashi berserker soaking stray missiles to rack up attack for sieging.

General cookie cutter taunts and zoo generation kept it going til the later cards were in play.

Blockchain Returning to Apple

At last!

Blockchain is Back

https://blog.blockchain.com/2014/07/28/blockchains-wallet-returns-to-ios/

Blockchain’s Wallet Returns to iOS!

At the beginning of 2014, our iOS wallet was the final bitcoin wallet app to be removed from the App Store. The support we received from the community after this happened was absolutely phenomenal and we thank you for sticking with us through that experience.

Our intent was never to leave iOS users without option to use bitcoin, so we began working on mobile web wallet that would work on any device.

This spring Apple signaled it was changing it’s position with the new App Store Review guidelines, and it appeared the restrictions for bitcoin wallets had been lifted. The most common question directed to us has been, “When will Apple allow bitcoin wallets back?”

As of today, we are excited to announce that Blockchain has returned to the App Store!

Users can now once again enjoy the simple experience of sending, receiving, and storing bitcoins securely on any iOS device.

The new Wallet app remains consistent with Blockchain’s principles: a wallet that allows you to control your own private keys, know your funds are secure, and transact with anyone in the world.

We rebuilt the wallet from the ground up adding security features like a pin screen, improving performance, and updating the user interface. We also changed the default sending fee to .0001 BTC; the same as our Android wallet.

Stay tuned for new releases in the coming months, as we bring features over from the new Android App, including the very popular merchant map. Our whole team is excited to be working on iOS again and we look forward to hearing your feedback.

Get Blockchain’s new iOS wallet here.

Heroes of the Storm

Had some time to try out Heroes of the Storm.

Gave me a feel that is more LoL than Dota, but really a different game. Everyone levels up together, and it is a talent tree (like buffs) unlocked with levels instead of skills. Neutral creeps are also more exciting, as well as map differences and different activities like the mines.

Hearthstone unpacks Curse of Naxxramas 1.1

Ah, the hotly anticipated single player mode of Hearthstone (PvE mode) that brings it closer to Hex in terms of raiding.

Take the chance now to at least try it and secure a free first wing, before it becomes gated off!

Brings back memories of old WoW days too.

anub'rekhan

First up was Anub’Rekhan, you can find Naxxramas in your solo play segment.curse of naxx

There’s some voice acting there.

Grand Widow Faerlina looks better as she lobs magic missiles at youfaerlina grand widow faerlina

You get cards specific to naxx as you clear the bosses, but otherwise nothing much in terms of rewards. No Gold even.reward anub

Heroic mode is quite a step up, and probably requires some customsheroic mode

It is unlocked when you beat Maexxna on normal (class challenges also get unlocked)maexxna

Curse of Naxxramas: The Arachnid Quarter – Now Open!

Curse of Naxxramas: The Arachnid Quarter – Now Open!

Gather your strongest spells, sharpen those armaments, and dust off your spider-stompin’ boots—Curse of Naxxramas: The Arachnid Quarter has opened its gates to players! Mind the webs—they already know you’re here. . . .

The Arachnid Quarter will be free to all Hearthstone players during the month-long Naxxramas launch event! Every week, a new Naxxramas wing will become available for players to experience. Naxxramas wings will be available for players to unlock in the following order:

The Arachnid Quarter
The Plague Quarter
The Military Quarter
The Construct Quarter
Frostwyrm Lair

The Arachnid Quarter hosts undead humanoid arachnids and their masters, who are eager to eat . . . er,  meet you. Victory over these creepy crawly cretins will reward you with all-new Hearthstone cards!

The undead nerubian Anub’Rekhan is the first boss players will encounter within Naxxramas. Defeating Anub’Rekhan will award you with two copies of the Haunted Creeper card for your collection.

Next, players will challenge Naxxramas’s mistress of venom and premier acolyte trainer, Grand Widow Faerlina. A victory against Grand Widow Faerlina will award you with a pair of Nerub’ar Weblord cards for your collection.

Maexxna_HS_Lightbox_CK_250x250.jpg

The final boss of Naxxramas is the massive spider, Maexxna. Don’t get wrapped up in all the excitement and miss out on your chance to add two Nerubian Egg cards to your collection for defeating her in a duel.

Defeating all of the bosses within the Arachnid Quarter will reward you with the Legendary Maexxna card for your collection. Your opponents may need to grab a bigger boot*!

Lurking within this wing are two Class Challenges that will become available to players who have defeated all of the bosses in the Arachnid Quarter on Normal Mode. These Class Challenges will put your skills with those specific classes to the test! If you overcome these Challenges, you’ll be rewarded with new class-specific cards to add to your collection.

For those of you looking for a serious challenge, Heroic Mode of the Arachnid Quarter becomes available after you’ve defeated all of the Arachnid Quarter’s bosses on Normal Mode. Heroic Mode bosses are significantly more difficult than their normal versions, and aren’t for the faint of heart (or the arachnophobic).

Experience all of the creepy crawly fun of Curse of Naxxramas: A Hearthstone Adventure by skittering in to the Arachnid Quarter for free today!

Singaporean spent $16000++ at TI4 Seattle Secret Shop to resell in Singapore

It looks like a Singaporean went to Seattle for TI4′s secret shop and threw a cool $13,000 USD (around $16k++ SGD) spread out over 8 buyers for the great swag there.

he spent $6700 himself in one trip, and then i talk to two guy with 8 bags of stuff that were working for him. Apparently he bought everything possible in one trip.

I know it’s not really my business, but I think it’s ridiculous that somebody is allowed to buy that much stuff.

hes a trader that is well known for dropping 10k last year and making a profit of 40k

also known for other misc trading IE sven commander set, flowering treants etc.

The user with the great dota loot:

Looks like he is selling his leftover TI4 Secret Shop Stuff, at a steep premium.

He’s more than happy to redirect the flow however:

Like what I already mention above, I am not forcing people to buy from me. You guys can get from Kevin or even Yammy if you guys want to get it cheap.

I am only selling to people who wants it, it’s up to them to decide if they want to get it or not.

As a matter of fact, hi guys if you guys want to get it cheap just go to buttsoupz, he will only be charging a $10 fee for it. Here’s the link
