Battle for Azeroth

Choosing a Main for BfA

So it’s around that time of the expansion, especially with Battle for Azeroth’s Alpha now live for “influencers”, that the rest of us non-streamer plebs start guessing as to what class we might look to main for the new expansion.

A new Dawn: These clouds have an Argent lining…

So following the betrayal and collapse of Treehugging Hippies, Azrel and I, alongside Alternative Chat have decided to launch a brand new guild on Argent Dawn! This is going to be a relaxed guild, with a mixture of social, alt levelling, casual raiding and whatever else takes our fancies!

Blizzcon 2017 – Does Battle for Azeroth make sense after Legion?

Blizzcon has wrapped up for another 12 months, and for the first time in 4 years, we’ve had a Blizzcon expansion announcement! Battle for Azeroth looks to bring the game back to its classic roots, pitching the Horde and the Alliance into an all out war harkening back to the conflict that birthed the franchise some 20+ years ago in Warcraft 1: Orcs v Humans. However the base premise of the expansion seems to me to be somewhat forced to say the least. For the duration of Legion the emphasis has been on our Class Order halls. These were Sanctuary

Damage output is punished cruelly by heavy movement and target switching. Mediocre damage in AoE heavy fights, even though that should be Balance’s niche. Poorest damage of all specs in the game in single target encounters in Nighthold. So a few weeks ago, I began privately mulling over a change

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
