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

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.

Windows 10 gave me ideas…

Ok, so having had Windows 10 installed over the past 24 hours, I’ve pretty much fallen in love with it.

The Switching of a main…

So I’ve switched mains. Yep, for 6½ years man and boy I was a paladin tank. And I loved it. I loved the sense of responsibility. The control I had over the flow of the fight. The make or break mechanics that meant a good tank could shine, whilst a bad tank would do nothing but […]
