Civilization 6: Who Are The Best Leaders? – Science Victory

If domination is not your preferred path to victory in Civilization VI, fret not – there are plenty of other ways to win. Colonizing Mars is as good a way as any, and can ensure that you don’t have to suffer the hardships of a global climate crisis after you manufacture all your rockets.

Although conquering the world by land is great fun in Civilization VI, there’s something to be said for taking the world by sea. If you enjoy playing on Archipelago or Island maps, there’s a good chance you’ll skip the monotony of building roads for your troops and will simply take to the seven seas instead.

This time I’m going to dive in to my top 3 civilizations – in no particular order – for conquering the world by sea, and what makes them so adept at doing so.

Switching Mains in Shadowlands – Death Knight Class Changes

The original hero class, Death Knights have had a solid expansion in Battle for Azeroth. Having mained my own Death Knight for large swathes of patch 8.2 and 8.3, Unholy and Blood in Mythic+ and raids has proven so enjoyable that I’m now faced with the prospect of not switching my main at all when Shadowlands is released.

Why? Because Death Knights are looking baller.
