Back — and cranky

Hey, all. Well, vacation is over — although “vacation” is not really the right term, as I was engaged in a lot of manual labor every day. I even took a slight break from WoW — would go two or three days without logging in, usually on evenings when I was too beat to do … Continue reading Back — and cranky

I think I can confidently say the top three are … Continue reading Leveling retrenchment, sort of

The devs tweeted this out in response to some complaints about the Legion Companion App. I do not often use the app … Continue reading Patchy notes
