Enough already

This is probably going to be a rant, so if you aren’t in the mood, you may want to skip today’s post. Over the weekend, I got a new piece of gear from the Warfront scenario. For a change it was not my umpteenth set of identical gloves, it was actually a 15-ilevel upgrade from … Continue reading Enough already

Unfocused focus

Some days when I sit down to write this blog I have to really scrape to come up with a topic. Other days there is so much to write about that the problem is choosing and limiting the blog’s topic scope. Then there are days like today, which seems to be a witch’s sour mash … Continue reading Unfocused focus

Beastmaster blues

A recent WoW dps chart — always guaranteed to provoke both whining and strutting among the numbers-obsessed — was bad news for BM hunters.

When the gear from normal becomes irrelevant to most of the raid, we switch to heroic on both nights. So last night was … Continue reading Dipping a toe into Battle of Dazar’alor

Thoughts from my week off

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. My alt hunter — a Beastmaster hunter — used to be my main, but for a lot of unimportant complicated reasons … Continue reading Goals and progress
