The Story So Far... Ever since Vanilla, if you wanted to experience the whole mass of Warcraft lore, you had to play at least two characters: Alliance and Horde. You've missed all lore for the Alliance/Horde-specific zones, and often a half of what was contested. In further expansions, the split of two factions remained to … Continue reading Lore Questline Splits: A Bliss or a Curse?
The final wing went live, and this is how the story of 9.0. ends for all players. Sire Denathrius encounter was not... too hard? I guess? Well, we had an experienced raid leader who announced in chat what to do, and also reset day's LFRs are super geared and experienced. Anyways, there were three phases. … Continue reading Castle Nathria: A Peep Into Audience with Arrogance

Just look at me go! As you've probably noticed, Ardenweald and Bastion are gone from my spreadsheet, and the same fate expects Revendreth/Maldraxxus. I don't know if it was the right decision to binge-level the whole roster, but probably it is! There can't be a wrong way to play this game, right? I will need … Continue reading Probably Today?
It's wing 3 in Castle Nathria LFR, and it's new bosses to review. Now I see the reason behind the LFR layout: Shriekwing, Sludgefist and Stone Generals are really one step from each other, with almost non-existent trash. Yet I still think that lorewise it's not too great. Shriekwing is the first boss - the … Continue reading Castle Nathria: A Peep Into Blood from Stone
