A plea for simple gear

A couple of days ago, Blizz published a fairly comprehensive guide on what to expect with Azerite gear in Battle for Azeroth. It was nice to finally have the information collected in one place, and for anyone trying to plan out a gear strategy for BFA it seems like it is a useful post.

Legendaries – stinking to the end

Last night I reached a Legion milestone on my main hunter — I hit the Legendary Lotto when opening an Emissary chest, and it was my first non-hunter token.

Dusting off alts

Last night I pulled out my poor neglected mistweaver monk and ran through a couple wings of Antorus the Burning Throne with her. It was pretty grim, but thankfully even really nasty LFR groups seldom pay any attention whatsoever to healers, so I have found it is easier to be very bad on a healer … Continue reading Dusting off alts
