Heroes of the Storm: Falstad – quick guide

blank

Published

Falstad Wildhammer of Hinterlands is commander of the Wildhammer dwarf clan, noble gryphon rider, one of the most respected humanoids by the Red Dragons. In World of Warcraft he is neither Horde or Alliance and this makes him the perfect hero for Heroes of the Storm where you will fight and kill anything that will stands in your way.

Falstad is a Ranged Assassin dealing 38 damage at level 1 and having base health of 710.

1  Level 1: You can choose between Power Throw, Updraft, Seasoned Marksmen, Conjurer’s Pursuit or Bribe. For me the obvious choice was, Power Throw; it increases the range on the hammer by 40% and the slow duration by 25% and it makes the game easier.

42  4Level 4: The options are Charged up, Flow Rider, Vampiric Assault or Gathering Power. If you are confident enough in your surviving skill choose Gathering Power it will increase all your abilities damage by 15%, otherwise with the Vampiric Assault because it will allow you to live longer in battles.

1  Level 7: The talent option becomes: Battle Momentum, Secret Weapon, BOOMerang, Free Roll or First Aid. BOOMerang is probably my favorite talent for Falstad, it deals massive amounts of AOE damage (around the hammer) and no low-hp hero can escape your hammer this way.

10  Level 10: Hinterland Blast or Mighty Gust. Hinterland Blast because on a long line it deals 300+ damage to the enemies, and the other skill is useless because it only pushes enemies away.

13  Level 13: Choosing between: Giant Killer, Crippling Hammer, Thunderstrikes or Static Shield. Again you are an Assassin, you either go Giant Killer or Crippling Hammer but I prefer the Giant Killer talent just because you deal more damage with your basic attack while crippling hammer only slows your enemy.

16  Level 16: The following talents are available: Aerie Gusts, Hammer Time, Afterburner and Overdrive. Overdrive for sure. After you activate the talent, it will increase your Ability Power by 25% and the mana costs by 40% for 5 seconds but who cares? after a fight you’ll go back to base anyway.

10  Level 20: The last choices: Call of the WildHammer, Wind Tunnel, Nexus Frenzy or Epic Mount. I usually go for Call of the Wildhammer just because you are forced at level 10 to take the only ultimate that makes sense. Anyway you’ll deal a lot of damage with this ultimate if you find the right position.

This is how I play Falstad because you can give a high amount of damage and play your role as an assassin for the team. Good Luck & Have Fun!

Who doesn’t enjoy listening to a good story. Personally I love reading about the people who inspire me and what it took for them to achieve their success. As I am a bit of a self confessed tech geek I think there is no better way to discover these stories than by reading every day some articles or the newspaper . My bookcases are filled with good tech biographies, they remind me that anyone can be a success. So even if you come from an underprivileged part of society or you aren’t the smartest person in the room we all have a chance to reach the top. The same message shines in my beliefs. All it takes to succeed is a good idea, a little risk and a lot of hard work and any geek can become a success. VENI VIDI VICI .

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Bandai Namco and Nike designed Tekken 8 sneakers with tag-team designs

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.
