Paragons of Method, finding Serenity in the depths of Midwinter.

So Method died on its ass then. From Sco (who stays in charge of what remains of Method): World of Warcraft, and more specifically hardcore raiding is in decline. There is a lack of competition; 2 Horse race versus Paragon each tier. The effort required to raid at a hardcore level (locked away for 2-3 weeks) is […]

Long term petting, in at the deep end.

So, over this past week I’ve managed to complete a couple of long-term goals. First up, the legendary ring! Huzzah! Finally managed to get through the chain and get the final reward, Maalus the Blood Drinker. So once I’m back from hols and raiding again, that should give a nice boost to my DPS. Frequently […]

[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 […]

Snow: It’s always fking falling in Frostwall.

It’s the little things that annoy. Like how it never stops feckin snowing in Frostwall. Like ever. Still pretty annoyed that the Alliance get a bloody palatial Garrison with proper buildings with walls and all sorts of other luxuries, but Horde instead get a collection of glorified bus shelters. Mind you, my level 90+ Alliance […]

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.

An issued challenge, certain to be failed.

A challenge. To those who were against flight’s return. To those who took great joy in the thousands of posts and tweets of those expressing their dismay at flight’s removal. To those who cried “fucking whiners” repeatedly in response to the above. To those who rolled their eyes when people un-subbed from the game because […]

Content vs Consumption: The lie behind the spin.

Click it to get the original size graphic! Update: Forgot to include the Pandaren starter zone, so that takes Mists up to 11 zones! The Infographic says it all. I may have to take another run at those Wrath figures, because they do seem a tad high, despite the fact the Wrath zones had tonnes […]

Mythic Difficulty: Mythic failure?

So, looking at the stats released by MMO Champion it looks like Mythic Raiding has been an abject failure in terms of participation numbers. A few days ago I guesstimated that Mythic was catering to between 2 to 5% of the player base. Looks like that estimation was absolutely right on the nose. At best, […]
