Game of Thrones: What Do the White Walkers Represent?

One of my fascinations about Game of Thrones is the question of power and ruling. How does power aid ruling and vice versa. In an earlier season, Cersei once mentioned to Peter Baelish that “power is power.” The equation is a reflexive one that reflects the absolutism in Cersei’s mind about power and ruling. In that sense, how does it fit in with the Night King and the White Walkers?

Game of Thrones: What is Tyrion’s Motivation?

One of the biggest questions on my mind with Game of Thrones this season is Tyrion’s ultimate purpose to the plot. Many have criticized his character as being an after effect due to Dave and Dan no longer having the books as source material for Tyrion’s better quotes.

But for the solo player, what are some good methods for leveling? If you’re looking for a post on reaching 70 super fast, this probably isn’t the best spot for you.

Diablo 3: Demon Hunter Marauder Endless Walk Build for Patch 2.4.2

Typically, for Marauders builds these days, you’ll see the M6 pairing with Focus/Restraint (Bastion of Will), Manticore, Wraps of Clarity and a few other key items. While this build is high in damage, it has a few issues in vulnerability when sentries are not up, is resource intensive and slow. So I want to present a slight variation on the M6 build with an emphasis on using the Endless Walk ring/amulet in this alternative build.
