Miscellaneous stuff

No big topic today, just a few incomplete thoughts about the game that have been rattling around in my head. Flying. At last, over the weekend, I completed Legion Pathfinder Part 2. The long pole in the tent for me was getting revered with Legionfall Armies. I had lost a couple days questing the previous … Continue reading Miscellaneous stuff
