WoW Leveling in Patch 9.1.5

Yes, I still play World of Warcraft. It’s a mindless time sink for me. I’m what you’d call a “Filthy Casual.”

Well, I’m sure YOU wouldn’t call me that. You’re classy, and above that sort of thing.

That being said, I find it necessary to find resources to explain to me just what the Hell is changing with new game patches. Websites blather on and on, telling but not explaining. I’m certainly not going on social media to find out what is going on because that’s where people are, and people are terrible (not YOU of course. Again, you’re classy like that.)

But then where does one go for information without having to deal with people? TO THE YOUTUBES!

Dalaran Gaming came through with a good video explaining the quality of life things for those who might be trying to level a character through Shadowlands in Patch 9.1.5.

I was aware of some things (heirloom gear upgrades), but not of other (Torghast is actually useful for something? Really?)

So check out the video from Dalaran Gaming. I hope you learn something. I know I did… classy.

California Sues Activision Blizzard

I can barely bring myself to format anything here regarding this case. The only reason I’m posting anything is for my own bookkeeping. I have a World of Warcraft category on my little blog here and if nothing else gets posted regarding WoW, I’d just like something here that outlines why. Here’s a video from Bellular News regarding the case against Blizzard and its shitty workplace environment.

Here’s another video discussing the shitty human beings associated with aspects of the case. People I actually met and shook hands with at BlizzCon.

I fucking loathe this “yeah bro” mentality. Fucking Blizzard.

I hope Final Fantasy 14 is good.

I’ll have my tequila ready!

WoW Leveling Pre-Shadowlands

Well here we are. The World (of Warcraft) has changed once again. Shadowlands is coming… eventually. But in the meantime, we as players can take this time to adapt to Patch 9.0. This means changes to class skills, talents, and dealing with the level squish from 120 to 50.

With the squish comes certain benefits. This might not be a bad time to level up some alts. By all accounts, leveling now is much quicker than before. Bellular (@BellularGaming on Twitter) over at Bellular Gaming cranked out this video to explain just what the Hell happened, how the Hell to level, and where the Hell to do it.

Needless to say, I’m looking forward to leveling a few more alts.

Hell no.

Fastest leveling 1 to 120 in World of Warcraft

With the 100% XP bonus being extended, now is the time to level up those alts. And, like an idiot, I decided that maybe I’d like to unlock the Mag’har Orc Heritage Armor, so I started a DK and decided to give it a go. Well thanks to the video below by FezzikGG, I went from 58-62 in about 45 minutes using a route I’d never taken before. I don’t know how long I’ll be able to stomach leveling yet ANOTHER character, but until I hit that wall and come to my senses I’ll see how far FezzikGG can take me.
