Happy New Year! I hope you're all going into the new year in high spirits. I don't personally make any resolutions, because I'm not the type of person that finds goals like that actually motivate me, but if you do, I wish you luck in them! A tip I find helps a lot of people is to ease into them if at all possible; don't feel bad for skipping a day at the gym or missing a day of your diet or whatever. It's not a failure, it's just a step on your journey!

Conversation this week is a numbers game.

Mechanical Madness

The Fan Community Spotlight returns for 2022 with a mechanical marvel - Mr.Stupid's Artificer

I've always been a fan of the Tinkerer or Artificer concept for custom classes. I think the concept of them as classes works so wonderfully in both integrating into Hearthstone's world and general level of fantasy, and also mechanically gels so well with so many different ideas. The Hero Power and Keyword that Mr.Stupid chose to go with here feels very appropriate, for example, but I've seen wildly different concepts that still feel like they capture it so well.

Consider something like the Death Knight. There's a few ways you could take it, definitely, but I can't imagine a Death Knight class without some level of Freeze and Resurrect support. I think part of it is how established Death Knights already are in WoW as a player class? Perhaps with that degree of separation afforded by not being an official class, you gain a level of freedom over what you can create.
