Warfronts and Uldir

Yesterday I accomplished two tiny little milestones in Battle for Azeroth: my first Warfronts scenario, and finally clearing Normal Uldir. I found the Warfronts scenario somewhat fun, but I fail to see what the long buildup has been about, and why the hype. I mean, it’s basically a standard Battleground with NPCs inside that give … Continue reading Warfronts and Uldir

Distracted thoughts

It’s another one of those scatterbrained days for me, so today’s post is just a couple thoughts I had last night while logged in and raiding. Ion’s lecture.

If anything, I play more hours each week now than I did when I first started the game. I just want to get that out there, … Continue reading Battle for Azeroth wearing thin already?
