This is probably going to be a rant, so if you aren’t in the mood, you may want to skip today’s post. Over the weekend, I got a new piece of gear from the Warfront scenario. For a change it was not my umpteenth set of identical gloves, it was actually a 15-ilevel upgrade from … Continue reading Enough already
Before I get into today’s post, let me say up front I do not think the demise of World of Warcraft is imminent.

This morning, at a loss for a topic to write on, I listened to a Taliesin/Evitel interview with Jeremy Feasel, the current WoW Patch God.
