PvP still sucks

Over the weekend I ran some random battlegrounds on my monk. The only reason I ran them was because there was an engineering blueprint I wanted, and it was locked behind doing enough PvP to get the whatchamacallit gizmos to pay the vendor dude in Nazjatar. So, first off, I was grumpy because I felt … Continue reading PvP still sucks

Cranky Monday

Not much to report in WoW land these days, and I slept badly last night so woke up kind of cranky. You will realize that about halfway through this post if not sooner... Tonight, of course is the big name lottery for Classic — 2200 GMT, which is 1800 Eastern time. Apparently our guild will … Continue reading Cranky Monday

I find it fantastically relaxing — … Continue reading A break from killing

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
