While first wing of Ny'alotha seemed hardest in terms of trash rather than bosses, the second wing kicks poor LFRaiders right into crotch! Despite the two weeks of gearing up in 8.3., the second wing seems way overtuned - most notably, with Hivemind and Vexiona. I can't possibly imagine how a group of 410 access … Continue reading Ny’alotha: A Peep into Halls of Devotion
As a casual player, I'm never into specific grind of power items, overall artifact power, or god forbid simulations and calculators. I'm just playing the game, and whatever power ups I get, I'm happy with. Yet the new systems are worth of my opinion cause they answer the question what shall we be doing in … Continue reading 8.3. Gameplay Systems: Corrupted Items, Visions, Invasions and Azerite Necklace
This post is an expansion of my yesterday's comments. I've mentioned that I'm experiencing a huge gap between my own feelings and what I am reading, watching and listening in WoW-related media from other players. Likewise in Draenor - while my WoD gameplay was rich, full of events and kept me busy from day one … Continue reading Battle for Azeroth: Why Am I Enjoying the Expansion?
The last wing of Uldir, unlike most raids in Legion, contains two bosses - Mythrax and G'huun himself. Mythrax, predicted as LFR bane, appeared to be one of the easiest bosses in the raid. It sports barely a couple of mechanics, and not any new ones. Step out of the cone if it targets your … Continue reading Uldir: A Peep into Heart of Corruption
In the second wing we continue to clear the enormous Uldir complex of G'huun corruption. There is not too much happening lorewise - much like in Nefarian's lair in Cataclysm, we clear the wings from monstrosities. The first LFR boss here is Fetid Devourer, a three-headed 'dog'. It reminded me of a Helya's pet, although … Continue reading Uldir: A Peep into Crimson Descent
The first wing of Uldir is up and running - Halls of Containment. The wing contains three bosses - Taloc, MOTHER and Zek'voz. I came drastically unprepared. This is actually funny :) A friend of ours came to visit yesterday (she lives across the road, so it's a common thing), and I've remembered that we … Continue reading Uldir: A Peep into Halls of Containment
A thourough research, alt+tab guides, was held yesterday and today. I've tried all the classes in the field during Army of the Light emissary quests and assaulted dummies in Pandaria hubs. Here's my report. First of all, healing will not be a thing of this article. The arsenal of healers did not experience too many … Continue reading Pre-Patch 8.0. Class Changes Overview
EU maintenance was planned during 3 a.m. - 11 a.m. By a good Blizzard tradition, I was able to successfully login at 8 a.m. :) First of all, the login screen. I hated the initiate sharp Legion tune chords, so I was happy to hear the new, softer one beginning of Battle for Azeroth. BfA … Continue reading Pre-Patch is Live!
Blizzard's official announcement about new Allies - Dark Irons and Mag'har Orcs - is up! Most importantly, the list of classes and racial abilities is published too. And it is high time to think about our new alts. Dark Iron Dwarves The Dark Irons can boast this set of classes: Hunter Mage Monk Paladin Priest … Continue reading Dark Iron Dwarves and Mag’har Orcs: Class Choice
This just in: Battle for Azeroth will be released on August 14! Pre-patch would likely be out a month before expansion, so prepare your checklists and get ready to grind them until July 14. Then we will have Teldrassil burning, Siege of Lordaeron and artifact power cancelled on our hands. Most probably well run repeatable … Continue reading Battle for Azeroth Release Date
