Blizzard’s Re-introduction of Flying to WoW


Props to Blizzard. It feels strange that no-flying was even on the table, and from what we’ve heard over the past couple of years makes it clear it was even a controversial topic internally. Like I get that there was a sudden influx of former wow devs or whatever from Titan and that likely saw a shift away from the direction WoW was going, but to have a feature in the game for SEVER YEARS be pulled in current and any future content over really dumb reasons (No one expects to be flying while leveling up, besides Cataclysm, literally every Continue reading

Warcraft and Squishing


One of the features in the upcoming Warlords of Draenor expansion to World of Warcraft was a squishing of numbers. I wasn’t planning to make a post on this, but I thought it was interesting enough to through up — you see on the night before the pre-patch that included the “squishing” I took some screenshots of some of my characters before, so that later I could compare them for after the squish.

Frankly it’s all nonsense, I Continue reading

Swipe is OP!

Been looking through my sites recently and realized it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything. I want to do some more WoW posts, but I’ve decided to hold on until Cataclysm goes final, as too many classes, spells, etc… seem to be in flux. For instance my old bear macros post is now outdated. Though truthfully bear tanking hasn’t really changed all that much, even now I basically use 2 buttons for single target tanking, and maybe 3 for AoE pulls (but even that’s iffy given how powerful swipe is currently on live). I let my time run out recently, Continue reading
