Quest objectives: Each floor within a level has a bonus event or objective that you can complete for extra WoW Anima powers.Mobs, Mawrats and rares: A wide variety of trash packs populate these halls, including elites, sometimes rare elites (which drop an Anima Cell to give you additional powers), and Mawrats. These easy to kill non-elites are notable only because many of the Anima Powers interact with them, making them explode when you kill them or buff you or reset cooldowns, for example.Souls: Freeing souls gives you a stacking buff to your stats, which persists through death. Completing souls’ bindings instead (starting with level 3) gives you a higher buff, but it expires in three minutes, forcing you to find another soul.Geography: The corridors are semi-randomly generated in each level, so there are lots of twists and turns and dead ends. To make it easier to see where you’ve been, you might consider dropping raid markers, guild banners, or toys (such as the … [Read more...] about Your guide to Torghast, World of Warcraft’s endless dungeon
Crossover walking dead fear the walking dead
Valhalla shows him as charismatic, magnanimous, but uncompromising. It's a good look for a would-be king. You don't have to go to as much trouble bringing a bunch of fractious warlords under a single crown if you can get them to like you enough, avoiding a big dust up. He plays up an idea of national unity and shared accomplishment that might seem familiar to us in the present, but wasn't at all common in Europe until hundreds of years later. Fairhair and his successors would still have to deal with rowdy vassals for generations, like our pal Sigurd, before power was really consolidated. But he got the ball rolling. And by all accounts, he looked fabulous doing it. … [Read more...] about How Assassin’s Creed Valhalla’s historical characters stack up to the real deals
Chris Livingston: Did I mention I bought an LED light for my toilet? Yes, I did, at length, and will continue to do so at every opportunity. But I also, finally, bought a Nintendo Switch, even though it wasn't actually on sale. It's my first console in quite a while, basically since I bought an Xbox 360 to play Red Dead Redemption back in 2010. I only have Mario Kart and Animal Crossing on it, plus a bunch of free NES games, but so far I'm impressed. It's a neat little machine, except for those joycons that can go straight to hell. (I also bought a Switch Pro Controller, and it's much better.) Maybe at the holiday break I'll finally, finally get to play Breath of the Wild. … [Read more...] about What did you buy in 2020’s Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales?
For trips to the bathroom at night, it's much nicer than turning on the light. My Cyberpotty's glow isn't blinding, so it won't mess up my night vision when I'm done and have to walk back to bed through the darkened house. And it's preferable to standing or sitting in the complete darkness, too. (Though while sitting, most of the light is blocked out. By my ass). … [Read more...] about I RGB’d my toilet, and you should too
CD Projekt Red receives $7 million (30 million PLN) in Polish government funding. It is the largest cut of Poland's National Center for Research and Development fund, to be used for the CDPR's four proposed focuses: city creation, seamless multiplayer, cinematic feel, and animation excellence. Multiplayer is news to everyone and speculation begins. Will Cyberpunk 2077 be an MMO? Will it feature a separate more traditional deathmatch mode? Or something else entirely? There is still no release date in sight. … [Read more...] about A look back at the eight year wait for Cyberpunk 2077
