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

Patchy notes

With any luck, we may finally be past the play-stopping bugs with Patch 8.0.1 and into the exploration phase. Before I get started on my hunter notes, though, a couple of random thoughts. The devs tweeted this out in response to some complaints about the Legion Companion App. I do not often use the app … Continue reading Patchy notes

Maybe it is just a reflection of the long dragged-out winter we are having, but most of the things I read about Battle for Azeroth seem depressing. (WARNING, RANT FOLLOWS) And … Continue reading Battle for Azeroth: Legion transmog?

Overcoming mage phobia

Those of you faithful readers that have followed this blog for a while now are probably aware of my love-hate relationship with the mage class. I rolled a mage as my second character years ago, mainly because I had a friend who swore it was the best class in the game. At the time he … Continue reading Overcoming mage phobia
