Re-awakening

Hello! It’s been a long time since my last post, and there are a multitude of reasons why. If you’re a previous reader returning, welcome back! If you’re new to the site, welcome, and I hope you find reason to return. I have been playing to some degree for essentially the entirety of Warlords of …

Resto Druid Spells Removed in WoD

Below are some of the known Resto druid spells removed in WoD and some comments about their removal. Innervate (redesigned) Innervate was removed entirely, but has since been re-added with a changed effect. It is no longer …

Thoughts on the Warlords of Draenor Item Design Changes

Now that the dust has settled on the Warlords of Draenor announcements at Blizzcon, I’ve had time to ponder over some of the Warlords of Draenor item design changes to the game. Below, I’ll present some broad thoughts/concerns I have, particularly related to the changes to item stats and gearing. Changes to gems/reforging/enchants/affixes/etc I like …

BlizzCon Update: Warlords of Draenor Changes

Departing from the flow of more guide- and information-based articles which I’ve been working on recently, this weekend I did what I always do and bought a virtual ticket to watch BlizzCon. I woke up at 4am which was a welcome change from last year’s 3am start time (last time round I stayed up all …

Competitive WoW

While this post responds to some particular events, I’d like to thank Matticus for his post which tied everything together. It was while reading his blog that I got inspired to add my own commentary about the state of competitive WoW. A few days ago, Paragon announced that they will be switching from 25-player to …

Glyph of Stars is just better

Whether you love or hate the boomchicken form, Astral Form from Glyph of Stars has a distinct functional advantage. It might not be the biggest deal in the world, but it’s enough for me to take it based on that alone (and for the record, I do actually like the man-bear-owl-stag form and prefer it …

The Druid Learning Curve, or how you could have learned to heal as a druid

I had somewhat of an epiphany today. The question about “How does one learn to heal?”, if one even can, has come up time and again. I’ve mentioned before that I’m basically a StarCraft 2 player now – I play SC2 far more than WoW. While the launch of MoP will see me rest my …

Patch 5.0.4 drops tonight

So the pre-patch for Mists of Pandaria is dropping tonight. The last major patch for Cataclysm. Tomorrow, I have an exam, so I’ll probably wake up, see if anything crazy has happened, pick my specs and talents, and then… close WoW. I have an exam to sit, and have plans afterwards. Also, on completing the …
