6.2.3 is now Live!

Well 6.2.3 went live this week, and with it several things of note: Cataclysm Timewalking dungeons. One additional dungeon for Timewalking during TBC and Wrath events. Valor Points, for… MoP-style 2/2 item upgrades boosting items in item level by 5 per upgrade at a cost of 250VP per upgrade. Grove Warden Moose* & Infinite Dragon Mounts (Heroic Archi & Timewalking bosses respectively). Mythic HFC is now Cross Realm. Mythic 5 mans now have item levels of 685 to 725. Tanaan Baleful token drops can create items that range in item level anywhere between 655 and 695. Felblight drops have been

On design and updates…

I’ve been working on a new design for headers etc over on Twitter over the past few weeks, and I think I’ve hit upon a design idea that I’m happy to run with for the foreseeable future! Making it more generalised in step with the broadening of the theme of my writing, so it’s reflective of more than just gaming. Started using Adobe Illustrator for the headers rather than my old favourite, Photoshop. It works quite differently, and there’s going to be a learning curve, but I really like the clean results vector artwork gives. It certainly makes logo design

Lifting the veil of Sar Crux…

Yep, I’ve changed locations as well as names. For clarity, the following has changed: Twitter handle, from @sargaming to @sarcrux Website URL, from sargaming.net to sarcrux.com Why the change?

Similarly I follow quite a

Legion: Removing Gear and Weapon Drops

Edit: If you’re coming here having seen Bellular’s video where he used my expansion quest stats, go here for the fuller story on that infographic.

Pillars of Eternally writing Sheet Music

I’m really enjoying Pillars of Eternity so far. The storyline appears very interesting, pretty Planescape-ish in tone, and the classes seem good and varied. As per the video, the class I chose for my first game was a female Moon Godlike Priest, and whilst she’s not a straight up healer archetype, she can throw out the occasional heal here and there, as well as dish out the damage  The game by all accounts racks up at about 40+ hours of gameplay, so a real epic along the lines of the Baldur’s Gate series, which should keep me occupied for a good

Amusing & Puzzling: Subscribers

It always both puzzles and amuses me, whenever I take a bit of a content break (as you’re no doubt aware I do once or twice a year), that subs only ever increase during the break. However as soon as I start producing content again, the subs numbers actually drop lol It’s like people think “Oh yeah, that guy. I’ll unsubscribe if he’s just going to keep putting content up! Grrrrrr!” Oh well, they’re welcome to re-subscribe any time, feel free!
