A recent WoW dps chart — always guaranteed to provoke both whining and strutting among the numbers-obsessed — was bad news for BM hunters. Basically, with performances aggregated over time since Battle of Dazar’alor went live, BM hunters are at the bottom of the chart. The bottom. The worst. The spec stinkers of WoW. Worse … Continue reading Beastmaster blues
Yesterday I accomplished two tiny little milestones in Battle for Azeroth: my first Warfronts scenario, and finally clearing Normal Uldir. I found the Warfronts scenario somewhat fun, but I fail to see what the long buildup has been about, and why the hype. I mean, it’s basically a standard Battleground with NPCs inside that give … Continue reading Warfronts and Uldir

Maybe it is just a reflection of the long dragged-out winter we are having, but most of the things I read about Battle for Azeroth seem depressing.

Last night was raid night with my lovable and fun but let's face it, dysfunctional, raid team. (We still have not cleared Highmaul normal, stuck on Ko'ragh after about 3 weeks in there, having skipped Brackenspore because there is no hope we have the DPS to do that one.) We were having one of our … Continue reading Raid DLJO
