Re: Therian Saga

I'll have everything but the 3 towers/2 fortification done for the outpost later tonight (~9pm est) and can get it built. Holly said she'd provide the towers/forts.

Um, I know I made some steel plates a bit ago that haven't made it into the vault, got distracted with making mattresses, not sure if she can make much higher than that yet.

Re: Therian Saga

Armor plates/ingots in the factory are for our lovely harnois crafters. Stone is mostly up for grabs I believe. Can someone confirm for me that an Outpost at the metal factory would build fine with linen walls and roof? I'm nearly done with the bedding for the knockdown furniture, and will start on ...

Re: Hearthstone

I don't actually play much hunter, but I still think it's a bit of an over-nerf. Decks with that kind of crazy card draw tend to rely on cheaper or weaker cards to pull the draw off. All of the minions with card draw are weaker than other minions of that cost. I've had good results with a paladin de...
