Glide Around, Kill Stuff, The Usual

Played some WoW, Legion Beta. I'm in this Vrykul area, you know. Questin' n whatever.

Things are going better than they did last week. I don't know if this is thanks to content updates, or just because I'm in a different area, or maybe even because I'm getting a feel for the demon hunter's powers. I'm killing things more smoothly, dying less, achieving a little bit of a rhythm.

The beta itself is a bit less glitchy, too, which is good. I don't mind the glitches though. They add a little perspective. Normally I'd hop on an go to town and not come up for air for hours. But in the beta the game boots me every now and again for now reason. So I go do laundry.

This morning, for example, all was well, and then I got kicked. When I logged back in: rain. Tons of it. We're talking Noah's Ark levels of rain. I don't know if that's why the game went kerflooey for a second. But it's okay. I had a load of delicates that needed to be hung up.

Specific to the new content though: I don't think I have a grip on how to upgrade my artifact weapon yet. I keep getting artifacts points but when they get over a certain number, they just go away. I'm doing something wrong.

Oh well. I can still fly off cliffs and kill shirtless men with big beards, so I'm happy.


Good news for alts/new players!

World of Warcraft's latest patch aims to clean up low-level play
The lower levels of World of Warcraft are kind of a mess and a half.

Thats nice, I remember waiting for ages for quest mobs to re spawn and it used to put me off playing at times.

Hmm... I might give WoW another bash. This pretty much sums up all that I loathed when I played it.

Lady of War, come at me!


Just something to think about, also I did not include any talk about continuing lore as a franchise/series because I am not one to theorize about it as I rarely ever dive into the lore of any game. I would love to here your opinions! It's been over two months and I am finally back!! Enjoy!

So I entered so many giveaways trying to get into Legion beta and this morning I woke up to an email titled "congrats". At first I thought it was spam but then I saw it was from Eurogamer and I was like NOOOO!!! LIES! I NEVER WIN GIVEAWAYS! Then I opened it and sure enough there was a key …

@Neny Thank you! :D

@Agagor Yeah I can see DH getting nerfed although I hope their survivability gets a buff because I feel super squishy until I actually kill something and then heal for a ton.

Big grats, have fun!

Thank you :D


Regular WoW Dungeons have become regular basis.


Well known.

Nobody goes there anymore.


BUT can you manage them while attending the "Special FUN Task Dungeon" challenge?!


____How it works____


- Everyone gets a SECRET GENERAL TASK assigned: for example when we approach a boss you must quote in Discord/type in chat one of your favorite desserts (f. e. "PUDDING!") - only the event manager and you know your secret task! So it's hilariously funny when random stuff is popping up everywhere!


- There is a general task for everyone changing every now and then (by announcement in Discord). For example: the first 5 minutes we are ALL only allowed to use the spell bound to key 3!





Sign the event HERE then:

  • May 19, 2016, 4:36:48 PM

I was about to suggest you to move it next week, but then...there will be Overwatch :)

  • May 19, 2016, 4:37:28 PM

For those that don't know about it yet, Blizzard just added WoD to the base game! \o/

Glance in the past

Haven't been writing a lot lately, so here is a very old piece I wrote almost ten years ago for my World of Warcraft Draenei Shaman Telkana.

A stinging pain woke her deep slumber. “Thank the light! You are alive!” A pair of soft glowing eyes stared at her in anticipation. She tried to sit up, but warm hands gently pushed her back. “You’re in no shape to do anything but lay down until you recover.” A deep frown crossed her face, which she soon regretted. “My head…” she mumbled as she fought back the tears, the pain was almost unbearable. “Yes, you took quite a hit, young one.” “Wh…what hap... pened?” even talking caused the pain to surface faster. “Everything went wrong” a sigh followed after which he continued, but this time softer. “Many of our people died. Something went wrong with the Tempest Keep’s satellite structure. The Exodar crashed head first into the very soil of this planet. Pieces are scattered all over these islands. We found you close by with many others, more death then alive. We are recording the survivors. That reminds me, what’s your name, young one?” “My name is…” there was a pause and then “heh... it’s on the tip of my tongue, how silly I can’t speak it.” But the more she tried to get a hold of it, the more it fled beyond her reach. “I… I can’t remember” she finally admitted.

After spending several weeks at the first aid encampment recovering, she was finally released. Gurdan, the Draenei that had taken close watch on her progress was a bit sad to see her leave. For a short moment it had felt as though he had a daughter. He had named her Telkana, since her amnesia prevented her from remembering much of anything. He had spent long nights at her sickbed, monitoring her every moment, but the time had now come to say their goodbyes. When Telkana had learned of the destruction the Draenei unintentionally caused to the land, she wanted to help nature and the creatures of this planet to rebuild strength, much as Gurdan had helped her. For she had at last, found something familiar. The breath of the wind as it brushed up on her arms, the rough earth beneath her hooves, the crystal clear water which was the first to return some color to her face and the warmth of the light which shone on her horns.

Legion Beta

Got into the World of Warcraft: Legion beta. I’m sure this means everyone is in the beta now. Well, whatever, let’s make us some demon hunters.

Here’s Quixote.

I won’t bother “reviewing” the new expansion or playing a demon hunter in general, except to say that this is the same old Warcraft as ever, which makes me glad, because I’ve been playing for ten+ years and there’s a reason for that. Blizzard hasn’t jumped the shark yet.

But it’s new, too, fresh enough to keep me guessing. Right now I’m kind of rushing through (started at level 98, dinged 101 today) but when it goes live, official, l and we start over again out of beta, I intend to take my time, read the quest dialogues, try to get into the story a bit.

Otherwise, playing in a Beta REALLY makes one appreciate the polished products that Blizzard usually provides. Right now, the game crashes, things get confusing, I die ALL THE TIME, and it’s just all-around cludgy. That’s why we’re TESTING this thing.

This is also a “beta” test of my own playing approach, in as much as long-gone are the days when I could spend hours grinding through content. Happy to say that half-hour chunks of play are also enjoyable, so far.


WoW Legion Beta thoughts:

"Hey, Discipline for life! I'm gonna try that in a dungeon!"

"Woop, ahh, what happened, why is he dying, why is this healing like one pixel of life, what just happened, wud, git gud?"

"....Okay, let's give holy a try!"

"What is this dungeon? Why is everyone standing in poop? .... I don't want this anymore :("


Interesting experience :'D I'm gonna stick with my love for discipline though! \o7

@Agagor It is 100% a healing spec, but it has a unique mechanic that makes it different than any others. :D

  • May 17, 2016, 6:17:05 AM

@Lonrem I'd call it more a support class, from what I have been able to test myself ... they are definitely wanting disc more on the dps side of things :P

  • May 17, 2016, 12:14:50 PM

Of course it is still a viable healing spec, one just has to adapt to all The changes. It might take some effort But i Love my Disc and Are going to practise to make it work :) and if Everything Fails, we still have two more specs ;)
