Hey, did you know that World of Warcraft has a new expansion? They do! It’s called Dragonflight, and as you might suspect, it is all about Dragons! A flight of dragons, you might say!
Editor’s Note – This has no relation to the 1982 animated classic The Flight of Dragons starring none other than James Earl Jones and the late John Ritter. Damn, that was a great movie and amazing cast.
Over the past few months, you may have noticed that I have not posted much along the lines of World of Warcraft content. That’s because I let my subscription lapse just before Dragonflight was released in November (Nov 28, 2022). Great timing, right? I had been playing just to earn enough gold to purchase additional months of subscriptions, but my mojo fell off a steep cliff. I had to decide where to put my spare time – World of Warcraft or the Pathfinder RPG. As you can tell from my posts, the TTRPG beat the MMORPG.
However, I have not gone to scorched earth with WoW. Despite not having an active account, I continued to ensure my addons were up to date just in case I got the itch to start playing again. As luck would have it, the WoW PVP and real-live swolverine, Bajheera posted his preferred addons and UI setup for Dragonflight 10.0. I’ve followed his guidelines in the past (both for World of Warcraft and fitness/workouts), so when I saw his video, I knew I had to check it out.
Not gonna lie – this may have been the motivation I needed to resub and try out the new expansion. He won’t see this, but just in case… thanks, Boss.
Enjoy his video!
The day has arrived! World of Warcraft announces the next expansion – Dragonflight!
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!
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.worldofwarcraft.com
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.
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.
