Cassandri Gets Gabbing

I’d like you to meet my Worgen, Zivanci. And here’s what I thought of the Worgen starting zone and experience.

The Sunday Night Ritual

So its already May and the year is passing by in a flash.  If you had asked me this time last year what I would be doing in WoW I would have answered without a moments hesitation that I would be raiding.  Perhaps not 4 nights a week but definitely 2-3… boy was I wrong!  [...]

What Happened to Westfall?

I had a young, confused Paladin going by the unfortunate name Dêva waiting for me on my loading screen. Yes, that’s Dêva with a funky character “e”. I’m not even sure how you type that onto your screen. I woke up at the graveyard.

The new Fire Nova is an AoE spell that sends a blast wave of damage out from wherever you dropped your fire totem. It’s such a cool spell! I can’t believe I didn’t know about it, and use it, for weeks.

Restoration (Shaman) No More

I tried. I really did. I waited until I had gathered 200+ Emblems of Triumph and bought all my 232 Tier 9 to see if it would make a difference. It didn’t. I still struggled to heal as a Restoration Shaman.
