So close, yet so far…

We came a smidgen away from getting our first ever Cutting Edge, for killing N’Zoth on Mythic, but after 200+ pulls it just wasn’t meant to be…

Statement of Intent: Part 2

With the pre-tuning issues Hunters have at the moment with rotations over both specs, I’ve been thinking about a Plan B that would serve as a backup plan should Hunters not get smoothed out…

Why responsibility is like a boomerang…

And it’s certainly not why a raven is like a writing desk… When I left Thunder as a raider, I obviously stepped down as a raid leader and as one of the guild leaders, then later also stepped down as an officer once the Thunder website etc was transferred to a new host.

Coming full circle in the World of Warcraft… (Part Two)

Choosing a class for Legion?

Or, what happens when an Atheist joins the Clergy… So, with Hunters seemingly still in a rather disturbing place on Alpha, you’ll probably already be aware that I’ve begun to look further afield for my next class. I’ve decided that I wanted to give full-time healing a go, as it’s the only role I’ve never main specced with during all my years in Azeroth (it’ll be 8 years this year). I’ve obviously done the whole DPS & Tank thing, even at one stage thinking of playing all 5 tank classes. Then I realised how boring Warriors & Druids were to tank
