Enough already

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

Beastmaster blues

A recent WoW dps chart — always guaranteed to provoke both whining and strutting among the numbers-obsessed — was bad news for BM hunters.
