I got nothin’

Extremely short post today. I have ideas, but honestly my interest in this expansion is so low that none of the ideas seems worth writing about. Pointing out systemic problems is futile, and addressing little cute things seems rather akin to rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. Blizz seems to be methodically dismantling World … Continue reading I got nothin’

Two big reasons BFA stinks

Warning: If you are not in the mood for a rant, you may want to skip today’s post. I have had a really frustrating week playing WoW. We had a rainy weekend in my part of the world, so I ended up spending more time than I usually do playing WoW. When an expansion hits … Continue reading Two big reasons BFA stinks

Hats

I am not a dedicated transmog or mount or hunter pet farmer/camper. For example, for some years I wanted to tame Skoll and Arcturus, but there was no way I was going to camp either of them for the hours necessary to catch them just as they appeared.

In general, I thought it was quite informative — there were several insights into design philosophy as well … Continue reading What I heard, part one

Goals and progress

Over the weekend I spent most of my WoW time trying to gain some rep for my Druid (so as to get the level 3 alchemy recipes), and starting to level my alt hunter. My alt hunter — a Beastmaster hunter — used to be my main, but for a lot of unimportant complicated reasons … Continue reading Goals and progress

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

Legendaries – stinking to the end

Last night I reached a Legion milestone on my main hunter — I hit the Legendary Lotto when opening an Emissary chest, and it was my first non-hunter token. I had finally gotten all the hunter legendaries and thus was eligible for a Blizz surprise. In this case, it was for a Demon Hunter.  I … Continue reading Legendaries – stinking to the end
