What we are learning about future WoW expansions

Yesterday we saw the introduction of the encrypted-file version of 8.2 on the PTR. (It’s not unusual for Blizz to put encrypted files on the PTR, I suppose so they can pre-position stuff for a timed test release.) This move came on the heels of a mini-hype tour by Mr. Game Director Hazzikostas, making the … Continue reading What we are learning about future WoW expansions

Battle for Azeroth wearing thin already?

I love playing World of Warcraft. I may not be the stereotypical fangirl, but it says something that I have played it all these years, with no real break. If anything, I play more hours each week now than I did when I first started the game. I just want to get that out there, … Continue reading Battle for Azeroth wearing thin already?

Battle for Azeroth – more observations

Look at the title - if you don’t want to know, don’t read. Yesterday I spent several hours on the Battle for Azeroth beta with my copied main BM hunter.

A plea to Mr. Game Director Hazzikostas

WARNING: Entering rant zone. Please drive carefully. Okay. Today's rant topic is one I have covered before, but last night it just hit a tipping point for me. To put it as delicately and politely as I can: BLIZZ, YOU HAVE ROYALLY FUCKED UP GEAR IN LEGION! What pushed me over the edge last night was … Continue reading A plea to Mr. Game Director Hazzikostas

Gear. Again. Still.

After a decent clear of Tomb of Sargeras (N) last night, I ended up with a new 910 ring and was able to complete my T20 4-piece. We had a lot of fun, and while we did not one-shot every boss, we did not have any real trouble with them either. Everyone is looking forward … Continue reading Gear. Again. Still.

Gear and math

It's been a nice relaxing couple of weeks in my WoW world. In my guild, we all took a break from what was becoming a very dull Nighthold raid circuit, and I seized the opportunity to work on a couple of alts -- my balance druid and my destruction warlock. I find I enjoy playing … Continue reading Gear and math
