A plea for simple gear

A couple of days ago, Blizz published a fairly comprehensive guide on what to expect with Azerite gear in Battle for Azeroth. It was nice to finally have the information collected in one place, and for anyone trying to plan out a gear strategy for BFA it seems like it is a useful post. That … Continue reading A plea for simple gear

Deja vu?

As we all know, Patch 7.3 will go live with the reset next week. Some people are wildly excited about it, others not so much. For myself, I am in a wait-and-see mode about it. On the one hand, I am impressed with Blizz's lockstep adherence to their stated release goals for Legion patches and … Continue reading Deja vu?

Delirium over at Thrill of the Wild does not post often, but when he does it is frequently … Continue reading For stat geeks

The ascendancy of gear in Legion

Last night was our regular normal raid night, and it was a good session all the way around -- we cleared normal Nighthold, did 3 early bosses in heroic so as to give us a head start Thursday for our heroic progression, and still quit 45 minutes early. Quite a few people got tier gear … Continue reading The ascendancy of gear in Legion

I wish I were as good as the sims say I should be

Been dabbling a bit with SimulationCraft. I didn't really mess with it long enough to get any real deep insights, but below are some random observations. I used these options: --  Fia's SV talent/glyph/gear spec --  Patchwerk style fight (stand in one spot and hammer the boss) --  100% active time (yeah, right -- I am … Continue reading I wish I were as good as the sims say I should be
