Thoughts from my week off

Last week I divided my WoW time between some concentrated raiding and just doing whatever the hell I felt like doing when I logged in. It was fun. I also pretty much ignored Blizzcon, catching up with the headlines when they hit MMO-C or Wowhead. Today’s post is just some scattered thoughts about all that. … Continue reading Thoughts from my week off

Goals and progress

Over the weekend I spent most of my WoW time trying to gain some rep for my Druid (so as to get the level 3 alchemy recipes), and starting to level my alt hunter.

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

Ends are also beginnings

Tomorrow, if all goes smoothly, we will see the end of Legion and the beginning of Battle for Azeroth, the seventh expansion in World of Warcraft and the sixth that I will have personally experienced. Yes, I know the actual full expansion does not go live until a month from now, but the pre-expansion patch … Continue reading Ends are also beginnings
