Hunter dreams

A few days ago I posted some of my own personal quality-of-life wishes for Shadowlands.  Today’s post is about some changes I would like to see for Hunters. By all accounts, there will be some class changes to nearly every class in Shadowlands. And of course, no matter what the changes, there will be a … Continue reading Hunter dreams

The Candy Crush factor

This post contains very slight spoiler info about Shadowlands activities. Don’t read if you don’t want to know. In last week’s Slooty McToot interview with Mr. Game Director Hazzikostas, Mr. McToot asked Mr. GDH if a mission table mechanic would continue in Shadowlands, and if so, why? I thought it was a good question, I … Continue reading The Candy Crush factor

A farewell to alts

Over the weekend it became crystal clear to me that the alt war — waged now for three expansions by Mr. I-Know-How-You-Should-Play-This-Game Director Hazzikostas — is over. He won.

I have followed this blogger for close to 10 years now, and I have invariably found … Continue reading Another one bites the dust

Letter to Greatfather Winter

Dear Greatfather Winter, I have been a very good night elf (mostly somewhat). If you agree (I can get some references), this is what I would like you to bring me this year: A simpler gear system. I have wanted this a long time now, and I have made what I think is an excellent … Continue reading Letter to Greatfather Winter
