The Lure of the Vanity Pet

So I had pretty much decided to completely close the doors on WoW. But I discovered the Moonkin Hatchling had been released in the Blizzard store. I wanted it… I wanted it bad.

Where Were You?

How will you cope with the loss and destruction of everything you hold dear? The answer is that you don’t have to. Bring your friends and family to one of our gatherings and learn how you can survive the apocalypse together, with us.

In Disguise

I don’t know why but I hadn’t thought much about Deathwing taking on a human disguise during the Cataclysm expansion. I think I just pictured him as a Black dragony version of Sindragosa, or Malygos even, who would fly down from wherever to be killed when we were good and ready.

I haven’t quit playing or anything though RL has been incredibly demanding taking up all my time of late and I’m sorry in advance that this [...]


In the fallout of the 25 or 10 man raiding arguments flying around the World of Warcraft blogging community I find myself thinking about prestige.
