Well, that was a tricky ride :) I still have not got any clue how this all worked. Finally I came to the solution of a completion spreadsheet: queue character names and mark them with a "+" if typing "conscript" in the collections tab showed an appearance in every slot. Mark you, it has to … Continue reading Pre-Patch Event: Transmog Sets Complete
First and foremost: a rant! It is a big mystery how Argent Conscript set transmogs are counted into your collection. The only thing that is 100% sure: if your character bought it, it will be there. On alts - you wish! That does not concern only cross-faction issues. For example, my gnome warlock Myrki boasted … Continue reading Pre-Patch: Transmog Pain & Spreadsheets
The first week of pre-patch appeared to be pretty scarce in content - and probably this is good in case you have many alts to prepare for the expansion. Story (beware the spoilers) There are two main directions of development: Nathanos and Scourge invasion. It's not an exaggeration to say that probably even Sylvanas loyalists … Continue reading Shadowlands Pre-Patch Week 1: Experience & Impressions
Alright, I'm ready to share the experience as through testing I have more or less understood how it all ticks. Storyline Complete a pop-up quest with Lor'themar/Genn in the cityMake a questing tour Orgrimmar -> Crossroads or Stormwind -> Darkshire.Back into capital, take a quest to Argent Crusade grounds in Northrend and a quest to … Continue reading Shadowlands Icecrown Event Guide
It is ironic how Battle for Azeroth, deemed to be one of the "worst" expansions by many along with Cataclysm and Draenor (not me though in any of these cases), appeared to be also the longest one. I think we could thank Covid for that, because whichever cool and natural work from home could be … Continue reading Death’s Rising Guide: What to Do During Pre-Patch Icecrown/Scourge Invasion?
Well this time I mimicked a more traditional pre-9.0. leveling: chain dungeons with quests in between. I've picked TBC content and did about 60% of quests of Hellfire Peninsula while in dungeon queues, then I went to Chromie and switched to Northrend dungeons for variety. Mind you, dungeon runs are a total lottery now. It's … Continue reading Leveling Experience in Shadowlands: Dungeons, Dungeons
There you go, I did a translation :) https://www.youtube.com/embed/rBA2-8_xyBw Turn on subtitles and enjoy the brilliant Shadowlands promo! The Shadowlands promo video is a parody of "In the World of Animals with Nikolai Drozdov" - one of the most popular TV shows in Russia and CIS countries in Soviet and post-Soviet era, a footage of … Continue reading In the World of Warcraft with Nikolai Drozdov: English Subtitles
Following the bleak "bird's eye" zone videos, the Russian/CIS segment of WoW community has got an unprecedented PR video yesterday. Here goes: https://www.youtube.com/embed/-6KZ6GfyOTE So, why is it hilarious? It requires an explanation for non-Russian speakers and those living outside of CIS countries. Nikolay Drozdov - the man in the video - is a zoology scientist … Continue reading A Hilarious PR Move From Blizzard
Hallow's End is over, and I'd say I ran for the horse with maximum capacity: probably the biggest number of toons in my WoW holiday history. I've tried to - and almost accomplished to squeeze in 24 daily runs for Headless Horseman. The reins did not drop, but at least I can say I did … Continue reading Holidays, Holidays…
Yesterday we've got a big announcement we've all been waiting for. Pre-patch drops on November 10/11, and the expansion itself is scheduled now for November 24. I'd say that I'm super glad. First of all, we now have the goal to wait for. Having an exact date is comforting, and it means we have just … Continue reading Shadowlands: Finally We Have a Release Date!
