Alt raiding

Last night our guild did an alt run of Heroic Antorus the Burning Throne. We have been running normal for alt runs, but several people have got their “main alts” to a level where that is not really challenging any more.

Main planning

I suppose it is nice that they are continuing to improve the game's visual experience. Side comment: I have often said that I think mages have the best visuals in the … Continue reading Hunters don’t fit in Blizzard’s mindset
