Finally! I’m a Mythic Raider!

So THH have conquered Heroic Nighthold, and have it on farm (we’re able to clear it in about 90 minutes or so), so over the past 3 weeks we’ve been pressing forwards into Mythic Nighthold. The differences between bosses on Mythic and Heroic isn’t HUGE, not at least for the first three bosses: Skorpyron: Different coloured shards with differing effects to hide behind for shockwave. Chronomatic Anomaly: An extra add in the add phase, on the opposite side from the other. Trilliax: Pretty much the same, except a copy of Trilliax with far less health spawns about 2 minutes into

Life at the bottom of the meter

Or, how Balance is so strong it can hold up everyone else at the bottom… So it’s been a few weeks now since the big move to Treehugging Hippies on Silvermoon, and my trial period

For the Alliance! Wait, what?

For the past eight years, since I came back to World of Warcraft, I have been a dedicated Horde player. When I re-subscribed I immediately sought out a guild, the sister guild of the old Alliance guild I’d started off WoW in during the middle 6 months of 2006 (Gnome Warlock!). I’ve been a member there now for just over 8 years, and been a member, raider, guild leader, ex-member for a week (long story), guild leader again, and for the most part, a raid leader too. That guild is Thunder and since Feb/March 2009 I never looked back. Until

Legion – The Honeymoon is over!?

So, we’re well into Legion’s release now, a full 3 months into the expansion and midway through the first tier of raiding with Nighthold to release in January 2017 as the final instance of the first tier. Of course since the last post (oops, didn’t mean to leave it so long), we’ve had a Blizzcon to let us know exactly where we’re going in patch 7.2

Back from Hols, back in the saddle!

So after a holiday that couldn’t have been timed any worse, raiding has begun! After the launch of Legion I took 8 days off of work in order to get levelled and get some sort of progress on gearing ahead of raids, because 2 weeks into Legion being live I was due to go on holiday for 10 days! /facepalm In fairness though, it was booked long before Legion’s launch date was announced, so I blame Blizzard…

A brief sojourn to the Broken Isles in Legion Beta.

All throughout the past 7 months or so, I’ve been entering competitions on WoWHead, MMOC, MMOG etc etc in order to win a beta key. So with the expansion about 4 weeks out from the time of writing, and after the pre-expansion patch has gone live, now would of course be the most useless time to get a key to check out the changes. So OF COURSE…

The Switching of a Main v2.0

So, just over a year after switching my main character from my Prot Pally, who had previously been my raiding main character for 6½ years, to my Hunter, it has now come time to do the same again, albeit in reverse. And with a slight twist.
