BFA: The Journey to 120

Battle for Azeroth has launched, and most of us by now will have at least one character levelled to the new level cap of 120. So how did I find my first run levelling experience in BfA? Well…

The Burning of Teldrassil: Morally Grey or downright Evil?

So now we know who burned the World Tree Teldrassil, and boy it was a doozy of a reveal… Needless to say there are spoilers aplenty in this article for the second part of the War of the Thorns questlines, so if you’ve avoided it so far (how?), then come back and read this later! Ok, so now we know that it wasn’t some third party like Azshara (that was not on my radar) or Jaina trying to provoke war between the factions by inciting the Alliance to go full on as revenge for the burning of Teldrassil.

Choosing a main for BfA: Part 2

So after I initially went through the list of possible mains for BfA a few months ago, and had come up with Hunter, plus some Druid and Warlock action, Alpha and Beta continued apace, and with that came Alpha access for me, and the ability to judge classes and specs first hand. That turned out to be a waste of time…

367 days of Mage Tower Challenges

I have now completed my year long journey of Mage Tower challenges. All in all I got a total of 26, with only Affliction Warlock and Guardian Druid done before the turn of the year.

Membership of guilds is changing forever in BfA

Battle for Azeroth launches in just over 2 months, and with it will come, as is the norm with any new expansion, many changes to game systems, classes and new locations. One of the biggest changes coming in BfA is perhaps one that has flown under the radar the most in Alpha & Beta, one that has the potential to fundamentally change the social fabric of the game for a significant portion of the player base – the very fabric of Guilds and guild membership.

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.

Review: Star Wars – The Last Jedi

The middle film in any trilogy is always simultaneously the easiest, yet most difficult film to both judge and make. No responsibility to set the standards like the original, nor the responsibility to tie up loose ends and provide resolution to the genetic heritage of its forbearers like the finale. The middle child is free to let loose, mix it up a bit and try new things and broach new ground. It’s a pity then that apart from a short 10 minute stretch in the last 45 minutes, the film otherwise proves to be a very slight letdown…

Review: Justice League

So Justice League came out this week, and I took Mrs Sar along to see it today. As some readers will be aware, I’m one of the few viewers who actually honestly really loves Man of Steel, Henry Cavill’s first foray into the role of the..well, Man of Steel, Superman.
