Distracted thoughts

It’s another one of those scatterbrained days for me, so today’s post is just a couple thoughts I had last night while logged in and raiding. Ion’s lecture. Yesterday we got a glimpse of what we can expect in patch 8.1, which could go up on the PTR as early as the end of this … Continue reading Distracted thoughts

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

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

For all intents and purposes, we have begun Battle for Azeroth. At least I have. I spent last night doing the Silithus artifact retirement quests on all nine of my characters.

There was surprisingly quite a lot of what I think of as “real” information as opposed to the kind of blather that is nothing more than an infomercial. If you have an hour with nothing else to do, check out … Continue reading The real Q&A

Battle for Azeroth – more observations

Look at the title - if you don’t want to know, don’t read. Yesterday I spent several hours on the Battle for Azeroth beta with my copied main BM hunter. In general, it was a positive experience (with some reservations). I took my time, but even so it only took me about 8 hours to … Continue reading Battle for Azeroth – more observations

Battle for Azeroth developments

Spoiler Alert: Don’t read this if — oh what the hell, it’s not like I’m giving away the ending to The Sopranos or anything. I don’t know about you, but the news from Blizz on Battle for Azeroth has seemed to me to alternate between fire hose and last-trickle-of-water-from-the-canteen levels. The last day or two … Continue reading Battle for Azeroth developments
