What I did on my summer vacation

My two weeks of writing vacation went by far too quickly, but now break is over and it’s time to lace up my hard shoes and get back to school. While I was out, I spent a lot — A LOT — of time playing WoW. Too much, even in my own opinion. But I … Continue reading What I did on my summer vacation

Is it enough?

WARNING STATEMENT: This post may contain spoilers. If you are hyper sensitive to such (“OMG, there are two new zones??”), best to skip it.  Patch 8.2, Rise of Azshara, is live as of yesterday. The technical rollout, at least from my perspective, seemed flawless. Announced outage was from 10-6 my time, and I had planned … Continue reading Is it enough?

Two big reasons BFA stinks

Warning: If you are not in the mood for a rant, you may want to skip today’s post. I have had a really frustrating week playing WoW.

What I heard, part two

Finishing my take (it’s a long one, get comfortable) on the March 21 Live Developer Q&A: Caverns of Time portal. This will return in “the next content update”, which I guess means 8.2. I did find it interesting that Mr. Game Director Hazzikostas, who in the past has not shied away from reiterating ad nauseam … Continue reading What I heard, part two

The endless war (campaign)

So over the weekend I played with newest leveled alt, my MW/WW monk. I had fun finally running some LFR, the Darkshore Warfront, and some emissary quests with her. I am finding the monk play style both quick and engaging, a far cry from the dull BM hunter mash-the-button-on-cooldown style. If monks had a ranged … Continue reading The endless war (campaign)
