Outside Azeroth - General Chatter / Re: Finished playing...

Dungeons III

Not much to say - if you've played and loved the others then play this for more of the same. If you didn't like those, don't bother.

I found it a little tedious. It leans heavily into the character and narrator voice-over with faux British-accented sarcasm. There are some clever bits, like different dialog depending on the time of day/night you play but in general they've milked this formula for all it's worth. The initial concept was clever - you play the evil overlord building a dungeon and populating it with monsters and traps to defeat the invading heroes. But it's kind of a one-note and three versions of it really don't add much that the original didn't have.

Here's another picture-laden review, this time of Hades:

The TLDR version: If you like Diablo, I think Hades is worth a try. It doesn't offer the continual flow of treasure and upgrades the way Diablo does, but Hades costs less and offers a more compelling narrative.

I'm actually pretty excited about this:  I really miss my crazy murder knife on my shadow priest.

Confirmed it works for Aluneth as well. Even with the special Sheep Staff Transmog:

Pretty neat to be able to have the talking weapons again, especially when Xal'atath reminds my Shadow Priest that "Every little death helps" while I'm doing the Kyrian Covenant storyline.

I don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but if you transmog your weapon into one of the sentient Legion weapons, you get the flavor whispers back. I.e. a Shadow Priest with a transmog to Xal'atath. I'm going to test this on my mage with Aluneth as well.

Sunless Skies is a 2D Victorian steampunk Lovecraftian horror rogue-like game. Normally I cut-and-paste my blog reviews into this topic, but this time I decided to include screenshots in my review and the pictures wouldn't be copied. If you're interested, the post is here:

This happened in the past with gear score and character average item level; the item level then became tied into the reward system for world quests.  I would speculate that Blizzard plans to tie the dungeon score into the M+ reward system, perhaps in place of the current +5/+10/+15 all-dungeon achievement criteria.

Apparently Blizzard are working with the people behind raider.io to create "mythic dungeon scoring" that will be in-game so people don't have to use an add-on or pop out of game to check this. I'm pretty sure I hate this, but since people are doing it anyway I figure it's a case of "if you can't beat 'em join 'em."

This change encourages upgrading all four covenant buildings to rank 1 and then all of them to rank 2, rather than ignoring certain buildings.
