Back to communication lockdown

After the Big Emotional Flying Flap, I -- foolishly -- thought that Blizz had learned a lesson about how lack of meaningful communication can spiral out of control. In response, not only did they do the "Q& A" but there was even a decent follow-up a week or two later. Though both these events left … Continue reading Back to communication lockdown

A few thoughts on the movie

Though I have paid little attention to any of the rumors and/or hype that have been going on for years now, it seems that there will in fact be a Warcraft movie hitting the screens next summer. I don't know if I will rush out to see it or not, honestly. I usually like to wait … Continue reading A few thoughts on the movie

Last night I decided to ditch tailoring on my mage and replace it with herbalism. I have not bothered to level her to 700 tailoring in WoD, as my warlock is also a tailor. True, she did have some low level patterns the lock doesn't have, but nothing that I can't buy on the AH or … Continue reading Gathering thoughts

Now what?

This will be a disjointed post, but it reflects my current feelings about the game. I really don't know where I am in my enjoyment of it, if indeed I am even still "enjoying" it. I just don't know. Last night I stepped out of the morass that is Draenor and revisited some of my … Continue reading Now what?
