Gee, thanks Blizzard…
As the year draws to a close, thoughts inevitably turn towards both the new and the old. 2018 for me was a tumultuous one in some respects, especially in terms of guild stability and raiding.
I started the year as a mythic raider Alliance side on Silvermoon, and finished it as a mythic raider Alliance side on Silvermoon, but the in between bit was anything but stable…
So I’ve moved the website to a new host, as visitors to the site earlier today will have seen it in a state of no small disarray! It’s taken a while to get everything moved over, but having finally got all my media files uploaded and the database imported from the old host, we should, by and large, be up and running again 100%
If there are any oddities, missing images etc, let me know!
So, onto WoW, and what I’ve been up to over the past few weeks…
Once upon a time dear reader, I was a member of the mighty Horde. I fought and lived and breathed Lok’tar Ogar, and followed my Warchief with unwavering loyalty, and then…
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…
In Part One, I outlined the many problems faced by players of Balance Druids in Nighthold and almost certainly ones that will continue into Tomb of Sargeras:
So a few weeks ago, I began privately mulling over a change
So, we’re well into Legion’s release now, a full 3 months into the expansion and midway through the first tier of raiding with Nighthold to release in January 2017 as the final instance of the first tier.
Of course since the last post (oops, didn’t mean to leave it so long), we’ve had a Blizzcon to let us know exactly where we’re going in patch 7.2
After quite an epic and longer-ish levelling experience, how did Legion’s levelling experience hold up?
As you can probably tell, given the lack of recent articles, I’ve been somewhat busy playing a particular game since August 30th…
Yep, Legion has launched and has been out now for about 10 days so far. By now most of us will have levelled at least one character to the 110 level cap, and seen a fair amount of the levelling content in doing so.
Blizzard took a fairly novel approach to levelling in Legion, introducing the scaling tech that it’s been toying with since Mists to the levelling process. This meant that no matter where you went in Broken Isles, with the exception of the endgame specific Suramar zone, you were always faced with mobs and quests appropriate to your level.
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.
