It has been a while since I have posted anything. Settling into a new job, as well as trying to kick start the online section of the business has been fairly time consuming.  While I have continued reading other blogs and watching the Warcraft news which has frankly bored me since Blizzcon (after 3 expansions I really can’t care anymore how stats work, I’ve seen enough changes to cope – just tell me what we should expect to see & experience in the new world damnit), I haven’t felt compelled to write much.

Then yesteday I noticed a post on WoW Insider about what would you choose to create an in-game event, and I thought to myself that while new events would be nice. I personally would like to see one in-game event that already exists built upon further .. mostly because it is overlooked. I would like to see the Harvest Festival built upon, expanded and made into an event along the lines of love is in the air, or noblegarden.

The theme around Harvest Festival, is at least in the single quest that is available, to honour a hero of your faction. I would see this expanded to honour the fallen overall – like ANZAC Day or Remembrance Day is in the real world. Let us honour Magni, and Cairne, give us some quests to remind us of why the warring forces combined their might at Hyjal, or Silithus, give us some reasons to recall why we have been fighting – and in some cases why we still do.

I’ve always felt it was a bit odd, that holidays like Valentines day made it into WoW in such a big way, but ones where we pay our respects for those that served seem to be left by the wayside. A revamp is, in my opinion, well past due.


Well, what a Blizzcon hey .. I tell you if the return of Gul’dan wasn’t enough for me (see my previous post on desiring a return of a real bad influence) the fact that we are seeing so many other lore figures, plus getting a great form of player housing has really stoked the furnace in wanting to play WoD. Though I am not looking forward to months of people here talking about blowing their wod, still I am sure that can be ignored.

Everyone made a big deal about changing timelines and other plot devices, but before I say to much I would like to give you one of my Favorite Terry Pratchett Excerpts ..

Just a note to say I am still here and still kicking .. since the last post I’ve changed jobs and while the new one allows more free time I have been pushing hard to gear my main toon and get the guild running back at a point I would like, add to that I have been busy developing 3 other blogs .. and I haven’t had much time in a few months to post much here.


I will say though that the follow up from Battlefields Barrens has been .. odd. I did enjoy the event and how it progressed the storyline .. and the way the storyline progresses in the raid works well. I just feel there should have been some sort of in-between quest or chain where Vol’jin says we are ready, go let everyone know the attack starts now! Or something like that.

I have been enjoying the new content and look forward to seeing what Blizzcon announces as the upcoming expansion … while I would love to see a full underground expansion in Azjol-Nerub I know its not likely.

You know I have always had my ups and downs with druid gear looks and some sets eventually grow on me .. like the blue winged bird-suit from the first tier of Cataclysm, but apart from Tier Six, I will admit I have never seen a druid set and just said to myself “that looks awesome”, until today .. the Season 14 Druid set looks awesome, and for the most part I have really liked the upcoming armour. There are a few exceptions but I will mention that later.

Avoiding class changes, upcoming raids, scenarios etc .. I can’t help but look at two new features and say thank you Blizzard. What am I talking about? Virtual Realms and Proving Grounds. I think both will in the end prove beneficial .. at least to my way of thinking.

You know I am infinitely proud to play a Tauren Druid, I don’t think that anything else comes close .. especially those inferior druid races. Having said that, I couldn’t help but don the old Darkspear warrior outfit acquired back in the pre-cataclysm event and ride out fo Senjin beside Vol’jin to conquer Razor Hill. Trolls are my second most preferred race, and it just felt right to be riding to war as one rather than a Tauren, Orc, Forsaken, Goblin or Blood Elf.


I will admit, I have been really enjoying an ‘event’ driven patch, and the nonsensical rewards that come from continuing to participate. The 489 gear from the vendors isn’t wanted by the Druid but some of my ungeared 90′s could benefit. The druid is enjoying his whole body shrinka and drums, and should really take time this week to get some boxing gloves. I have though been considering a mechanic available in Guild Wars 2 though that would make events in WoW so much more accessible and ever so much more epic ..
