Whelmed by the patch

CAUTION: May contain Patch 8.1.5 spoilers, read at your own risk. As you all know, Patch 8.1.5 dropped yesterday. To quote Mel Brooks, “I am not overwhelmed, but I am definitely whelmed ...” by it. As a minor major patch goes, it is fine I suppose, and like every patch it has some positives as well … Continue reading Whelmed by the patch

Lazy Friday

It’s Friday, and honestly I am feeling quite lazy — possibly getting a head start on spring fever? Thus, I have no great words of wisdom or even foolishness today, just some random observations, links, and stray comments. Feel free to skip the post, I guarantee you there is very little of importance in it. … Continue reading Lazy Friday

Hati! You’re back!

Back in the early days of Legion, when beastmaster hunters were having some pretty dark days because of Blizz’s complete stripping of the spec’s very soul, I remember being kind of skeptical of Hati.

This latest "addition" to Legion gear calculations -- … Continue reading Cranky about the crucible

Woohoo and Holy Moly!

There is only one possible topic for today's post, and I'm certain you all know what it is: The Blue post BM hunters have been waiting for ever since, well, the early days of Legion alpha testing: Hi Beast Masters. We’ve been reading your feedback and trying different sets of changes for Beast Mastery Hunters … Continue reading Woohoo and Holy Moly!

“We’re as mad as hell, and…” Oh forget it

There comes a time in every firebrand's life when they just have to admit defeat. I think I have, at long last, reached that point with hunters in WoW. Oh, out of stubbornness and habit, I will likely continue to play one, but for me the joy of it has gone. Worse than that, I … Continue reading “We’re as mad as hell, and…” Oh forget it
