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

It’s not like we have run up against a brick wall or anything on this boss — think we only have something like 25-30 Heroic wipes so far. … Continue reading Heroic Coven of Shivarra — bring your bookie

Non-legendary legendaries

Over the weekend I was reading up a bit on the 7.3.x upcoming changes — I opted not to dabble on the PTR this time — and I came away feeling pretty cranky about the whole legendary mechanic for Legion. What got me going, of course, is the description we have so far for the … Continue reading Non-legendary legendaries

Hopes for tomorrow’s Q&A

Tomorrow (August 3rd) there will be another in what has become a rather sporadic series of "Q&A" sessions, in which the ever-cheerful Lore selects players' mostly-softball questions to pose to a game developer -- in this case it will be none other than the Game Director himself, Ion Hazzikostas. There is always a forum prior … Continue reading Hopes for tomorrow’s Q&A
