Hati, we hardly knew ye

If we needed any additional confirmation that Blizz not only does not care about the hunter class, but that they have absolutely zero idea of what it means to be a hunter, it is this: Apparently Hati will just disappear when artifact weapons disappear in Battle for Azeroth. Now, I admit I have not really … Continue reading Hati, we hardly knew ye

Class chaos

In my last post, I mentioned my view that one of the major flaws with Legion is something I call "class chaos". Today I want to discuss that some more. "Class chaos" as a term suggests to me that there is no true unifying control within the class development hierarchy. That is, there is no … Continue reading Class chaos

What Blizz got wrong in Legion

My last post laid out what I think Blizz got right about Legion. It was a long post, because I think on balance Legion is a decent expansion -- certainly leagues better than WoD.

I was glad I had allowed myself a little leeway, because about … Continue reading A Beast Mastery hunter’s first day in Legion

Late breaking edit: Hell has frozen over. Blizz CM Ornyx has opened a forum thread soliciting comments on hunter changes. (Also one on Warlock changes, I think.) Head over there and make your opinions known. I am not going to go into why Blizz has ignored hunter pleas for months, and now wants to hear … Continue reading Class balance revelations

My crystal ball

Last night as we were tidying up some loose ends for guild achievements, our GM remarked that we only have two more Thursday night fun runs before Legion. I knew this, of course, I mean I know how calendars work and I can count, but that statement really got my attention. Suddenly all my plans … Continue reading My crystal ball
