The Guide to Taming Thok

Thok, the Devilsaur from Siege of Orgrimmar in MoP is a gorgeous big beastie. The good news, for BM hunters at least, is that with 7.0 he is now tamable! Hurrah! So, how does one go about getting through to Thok, given that he’s over midway through the raid instance, and Galakras, the famously un-soloable fight lies in between you and he? Well, let’s get into it with this guide to getting there and getting your very own Sparky!

PTR Hunter Preview: The Marksmanship Hunter

So after finding out BM was in a kind of a weird place, where it was decent enough to play, but not brilliant, and discovering the reason why my Arcane & Multi-Shots weren’t showing up on PTR (more on that particular disaster towards the end of this article), I’ve decided to move the MM preview up on the schedule ahead of the Survival preview.

(A Dozen) Things to do in Azeroth when you’re dead (bored)…

With potentially so long to go before Legion launches, possibly as long as another 8 months, for those that still want to play WoW, what is there to occupy your time? What can you possibly do in a game where there’s been no visible content in over 6 months already, with a seemingly bigger barren desert stretching out in front of you as well?

[Guide] Engineering: 1-700 in under 6½ minutes

Yep, it’s really that quick. I used to be a levelling BS/miner, but had wanted to be an engineer on my hunter for a while now. The reason I hadn’t yet was because I was immensely put off by the thought of having to level it 1-600 via old world recipes. However, what I didn’t realise was with WoD, learning Engineering has been ridiculously simplified (thankfully), and can now be done, from scratch as I did, from 1 to 700 in less time than it takes to walk to the corner shop and buy a pint of milk and back. How? Well
