Volunteer thoughts

Friday night we did our weekly Battle of Dazar’alor normal fun/alt run. Our GM is the raid leader, we usually partner with a sister guild, people can invite friends, and we almost always pug a few players.

Worse … Continue reading Beastmaster blues

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

This and that

Though it should not be necessary at this point, here is the standard spoiler warning. Don’t read further if you wish to retain any hope of launch day surprise. The closer we get to Battle for Azeroth, the fewer in-depth topics I am able to come up with. Today will be just a scattershot of … Continue reading This and that
