Video spoilers ahead, so watch them before proceeding. Blizzard continues its glorious tradition of releasing a comic-like series of animated shorts before the next expansion. From Shao Hao's journey in Pandaria, through alternate warlord biographies of Draenor, through Legion's troublemakers and to BfA's warbringers I've learned to like and appreciate this iconic style of still … Continue reading Shadowlands: Animated Short Bastion and Release Date Trailer Review
Leveling alts has a pleasant yet not entirely unexpected side effect: more transmog tries! As Malchezar, the final boss of Karazhan, simply forgot that he had those Gruul's Lair helmet tokens for Pins, he immediately dropped two for the newcomer Rottenshield when she went to check what all the fuss is about :) And one … Continue reading Rogue Transmogs: Done!
Yesterday I scrolled through usual services spamming in the chat, then it struck me like a sledgehammer. If I am willing to pay 333333 gold for a frog mount, or buy 3 gryphons/pterrordaxes for 80k each, why not do the same for the raid bosses? The prices are really not that high now - even … Continue reading Boosts Are a Thing?
* spoiler alert: if you're planning to read the novel, beware of this post :) The Shadowlands prequel novel Shadows Rising by Madeleine Roux doesn't serve exactly as a prequel, but rather another story in-between the two expansions. I would criticize the writing style a bit. I'm not a fan of a fanfic writer's habit … Continue reading Shadows Rising: Novel Synopsis and Review
In no particular order: 1. Zindari the Troll Priest now leveled to 120 and got 393 ilvl after. A way to 430 awaits, but at least she already one-shots Ulduar bosses! 2. Rottenshield the Undead Rogue is 57 and almost over Classic Dungeons. 3. I've reviewed my characters' ilvl: aforementioned toons aside, I think we're … Continue reading Trivia: Weekly Adventures
Reset day in transmog raids wasn't too awesome, but priests got the gloves from Sartarion - and so Naxxramas, Vault of Archavon and Obsidian Sanctum trips are now history! Now that I have so few sets to complete, the chances are statistically also lower. Still, it comforts me to look back at the path: The … Continue reading Trivia: Reset and… More Leveling?
The pre-patch is now available for testing for everyone! Mind you, it doesn't work properly as of now. It is being patched as we speak, some options becoming available and unavailable back, still I managed to have some experience. The new character questline. The quest of saving an expedition member from harpies was broken (judging … Continue reading PTR is Up!
This is an extremely rare thing I'm writing anything about IRL events in this blog, and moreover, a political post. Yet it's something I need to talk about. So, current situation in Belarus. Belarus is a former Soviet republic, a country located between Russia, Poland and Ukraine. For 26 years now it's been ruled by … Continue reading When IRL Can’t Be Ignored
Absolutely no drops in raids this week. But at least I've finished leveling :) Gearing up and spreadsheets are in order, the goal is 435-ish on all toons for a smooth entrance into Shadowlands (not many left). Also I think I'll take the latecomers on a N'Zoth tour for quest and see how LFRs are … Continue reading Trivia: Reset
One more thing is left to level my characters for Shadowlands - the goblin hunter Lizgun: I'm roleplaying her as a jungle/tropic island denizen, so sea wave colored bikinis and greenish rags are in order. Tonight I'm googling the list of hunter pets to pick a color-suited crab or something else equally weird. And, as … Continue reading Trivia: A Bit More Leveling & Off to Star Wars Universe
