4 Days before Legion, Blizzard asks: “So Hunters, any class feedback?”

4 Days before Legion, Blizzard asks: “So Hunters, any class feedback?”

How late is too late to start fixing things?


So, with 4 days left before Legion’s big launch day, Blizzard have decided to come out and start asking for feedback on the changes to the Hunter class.

No, no, I’m not kidding. I’m being deadly serious.

Here, go look for yourself.

Now we’ve had 9+ months of Alpha/Beta where thousands, nay tens of thousands of articles, forum posts, tweets, videos and so on have been made highlighting exactly what is wrong with the Legion Hunter, in comparison to the old Hunter class we used to have. Continue reading →

Splitting the difference between Red and Blue

Splitting the difference between Red and Blue

Or, seeing how the other half live for a change…


So, you may have noticed, if you’ve been following my recent tweets, that I’ve been playing a lot of different alts and a lot of them are on the Alliance side of the fence.

I’ve decided that come Legion, despite the fact that I’ll be maining a Guardian Druid for my horde guild, Thunder, it’s time for a bit of a change.

A brief sojourn to the Broken Isles in Legion Beta.

A brief sojourn to the Broken Isles in Legion Beta.

All throughout the past 7 months or so, I’ve been entering competitions on WoWHead, MMOC, MMOG etc etc in order to win a beta key.

So with the expansion about 4 weeks out from the time of writing, and after the pre-expansion patch has gone live, now would of course be the most useless time to get a key to check out the changes.

So OF COURSE… Continue reading →

The Guide to Taming Thok

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! Continue reading →

So the changes are upon us, and with it the classes you knew and loved have been changed, to one degree or another, forever.

Or at least until the next expansion 😉

This also means we say goodbye to the best thing about Warlords of Draenor: Continue reading →

PTR Hunter Preview: The Survival Hunter

PTR Hunter Preview: The Survival Hunter

Having previously had a look at the Beast Master Hunter spec, followed by the Marksmanship Hunter, we now get around to the spec that’s seen the most change of all: the Survival Hunter spec.

Survival for the longest time has been the red-headed stepchild of the Hunter specs. Never quite up there in terms of popularity or DPS, but it still had its fans, and they were loyal fans as well. So it was quite a niche spec. However Blizzard with the coming of Legion, have seen fit to make wholesale and sweeping changes to the spec, and is the first spec in WoW’s history (correct me if I’m wrong) to change roles. Previously a ranged DPS spec it has now become a melee DPS spec.

That’s my secret, I’m always angry…

That’s my secret, I’m always angry…

 

Angry.

Really, properly, angry.

A white-hot, incandescent, rage-fuelled, burning, seething, roiling, pure, barely restrained anger.

That’s how I’ve felt since the result of the EU Referendum was announced in the early hours of Friday morning, when the UK had, incomprehensibly, voted by a slim margin to leave the EU.

My last post about this before the referendum was largely an on the fence one, but as you have probably guessed I went with my head rather than my heart, and made the sensible, logical choice to remain a member of the EU.

It seems however, that slightly too many people within the UK, particularly in Little England, actually fell for the jingoistic, xenophobic, misplaced patriotism espoused by the Leave campaign in the run up to the vote. Now of course begins Project Backpeddle, as the likes of Boris Johnson, Michael Gove, Liam Fox and Daniel Hannan start telling us that in reality: Continue reading →

PTR Hunter Preview: The Marksmanship Hunter

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.
