DC’ed from inspiration

This is just one of those days when I have absolutely zero idea of a decent topic to write on. It happens. Thus, here are a series of disconnected thoughts, in no particular order. — For a chuckle, check out this clever post by long-time blogger Elkagorasa the Casual. If you have ever done M+ … Continue reading DC’ed from inspiration

Fun, part deux

A couple nights ago I was grinding out some world quests, and it struck me how annoying most of them are. Not because I have done them dozens of times and they are boring, though that is true, but because Blizz has steadily gone stark raving bonkers with packing mobs into every available space. There … Continue reading Fun, part deux

Remember fun?

Last night our guild resumed its regular raid night, after a nice long holiday break. We pretty much romped through heroic Uldir, with only a couple of wipes each at Zul and G’huun. We were short a couple of our core raiders, so some others had to fill in on cc and orb duties, and … Continue reading Remember fun?

The current Arathi Warfront will remain, so basically, players will have two that … Continue reading Warfronts and assaults

I even took a slight break from WoW — would go two or three days without logging in, usually on evenings when I was too beat to do … Continue reading Back — and cranky

Warfronts and Uldir

Yesterday I accomplished two tiny little milestones in Battle for Azeroth: my first Warfronts scenario, and finally clearing Normal Uldir. I found the Warfronts scenario somewhat fun, but I fail to see what the long buildup has been about, and why the hype. I mean, it’s basically a standard Battleground with NPCs inside that give … Continue reading Warfronts and Uldir
