World of Warcraft – Dragonflight

The day has arrived! World of Warcraft announces the next expansion – Dragonflight!

Easy Pet Battles in WoW

gggg

You may read the title of the above video and think “c’mon, pet battles aren’t rocket science.”

My reply would be “shut up.” Also, “watch the damn video.”

The video, from the mind and talent of Kraken Latte, really puts pet battles on cruise control. Why would someone want such a thing? Well, maybe you’re new to pet battles. Maybe you’re just trying to get through them ASAP. Maybe you’re having trouble coming up with the best combo and rotation to get through these battles.

Five minutes after watching this video, I was wrecking face in new and interesting ways. Thanks, Kraken!

World of Warcraft – Next Expansion

Save the Date, as they say. April 19th, 2022 is the day flagged for the announcement of the next World of Warcraft Expansion!

On April 19, the World of Warcraft development team will reveal the next expansion.  We’re excited to show you what we’ve been working on and where your adventures in Azeroth will go next.

I’m not sure how much this will affect me. Apparently, there are a few more zones that have been added to Shadowlands since 9.0 went live. I’m still running dailies for gold in the main hub. Haven’t been motivated, storyline or otherwise, to go much further.

Still, April 19 may be a bigger date than just an expansion announcement. BlizzConline was put on hold back in October 2021. Since then, Blizzard has been dealing with “issues” of its own. But with a new expansion coming and some other titles showing movement on the development front… maybe, just maybe, we might hear something about Blizzcon 2022.

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.
