The new expansion releases on the 29th and it looks amazing! But, before we can roam the skies of the Dragon Isles, there’s still a lot to do in Shadowlands. We also have to reserve a day to do what’s to be done before each new expansion: cleaning our bags, our banks and the guild bank.
The Search For A New Main WoW Character
For a few months, we’ve been using most of our gaming to decide which class could replace our Hunters as main characters. Here’s a little break down of our research:
Elemental Shaman: You like casting Chain Lightning? No? Well, too bad because you have to cast it 12263737 times/hour which makes it very dull.
Balance Druid: The spec we’ve tried the most. It could have been nice… Wouldn’t it be for eclipse! We both get very nervous after a few hours keeping track of the short duration dots, the full moon and the mushrooms, the astral energy and the right eclipse. I thought that it would all become muscle memory, instead we just got a huge headache.
Shadow Priest: In dungeons, in raids or in the open world, the game has become an AOE fest. So, having to use Mind Sear and multi-dotting as main AOE abilities easily becomes boring. Too bad, we really enjoyed this one.
Destruction Warlock: The lack of mobility, in and out of combat is very frustrating. Burning Rush isn’t enough.
All those hours spent trying other classes were kind of hard and they made us realise how much we enjoy our BM hunters. I guess that using the same rotation (give our take a few minor changes) for a decade becomes a bit old at times, but it remains the most fun for almost every aspect of the game. So, we’ll keep maining our hunters in Dragonflight. At least, it cleared out all the doubts that we might have had.
WoW’s 18th Anniversary
Happy Birthday to the best game ever created! I’ve been playing it for more than 16 years and I can’t imagine a world without it anymore. Sharing my adventures in Azeroth with Sisqi is also one of the best thing that ever happened to me.
It’s been a hard year for WoW, trying to keep going through all the bad press around Blizzard. However, it remains the best MMO ever made.
he celebratory event could have been fun, wouldn’t it be for those damn dragons that chain stun us until oblivion. So, event complete, let’s move on.
The first phase unveiled the new talent trees which are great but we’ll only get to experience the real thing when we’ll be 70 and geared. That phase was filled with classes and specs experiments (hundred of hours).
The second phase got us really hyped for Dragonflight. We’ve created two Drachtyr (even though we don’t plan on playing it) and we went through their starting zone. It was really fun and it gave us a taste of the Dragon Isles which look awesome!
The pre-launch event is also pretty great, we especially enjoyed the revisited version of Uldaman and the huge chaos surrounding hundreds of players simultaneously farming the primal invasions. Is it me or it feels less laggy than Shadowland’s pre-launch event?
Anyway, we still want to complete a few achievements and collections before next Tuesday, so back to work (in a peon’s voice)!
