Feeling the Fear and Tanking Anyway

In a case of good news / bad news — I can’t really blame my tanking performance on gear any more. Not so much at least. I’ve been incredibly fortunate. I have never been this lucky in gearing a tank before in the entire history forever and ever amen in my tanking life. Do you

The Fear of Max Level Tanking

I started my WoW career as a tank. It was what I did all through classic and much of The Burning Crusade through to Cataclysm. I’ve geared several and had to break through that initial barrier of feeling ready for the end-game many times (considering the need to do so for each expansion). Heck, on

Pathfound — to the Skies!

I really, truly, thought… That this would come at earliest tomorrow. When I completed all my Mechagon dailies and quests today I was sitting with roughly 1,400 rep to go before revered. This was inline with expectations and I wouldn’t have given it another thought. Unlike Nazjatar I quite like Mechagon. It is very reminiscent

Done with Nazjatar (Foreeveerrrrr!)

Like Krikket, I’ve been working on the Pathfinder achievement set in Battle for Azeroth. Unlike her, I’m not finished yet. But I’m close. Very close.

The Tomahawk Investment

I just spent a good few minutes debating with myself whether it was worth it or not to buy a level 4 white weapon for my Warrior from a vendor. I was doing OK with my trusty Primitive Hatchet, paired with a slightly ‘borrowed’ Bent Large Shield. To be fair, the imp that was lugging

Durotar! (And Instant Quest Text)

Right — first things first. If the slow unraveling of quest giver text is driving you nuts, there is a way to switch it to instant text. When I first saw the slow quest text last night it struck me as very out of place. Then, through the night I remembered. This was a thing

Exploring The Intro to the Magician and Gunner Classes of Lost Ark

The Berserker set a very high bar of fun with meaty, impactful blows mixed with a certain brutal grace. Pirouetting through the air or between enemies on the ground. Was it even going to be possible for another class to live up to this? Early indications? Possibly not. You see, I’d toyed around with the
