Swapping mains and Battle for Azeroth, part 2

In the last post, we talked about why I feel like I need to switch mains for story purposes. Now we’ll take a look at the various options and see what I might come up with. Bear in mind that there are a LOT of unknowns right now, so we’re not looking to make a…

Swapping mains and Battle for Azeroth, part 1

With two exceptions, I have played my troll mage as my main for the entirety of my time in WoW. The first was in Mists of Pandaria, when I mained a Warlock for 2/3rds of the expansion. I wasn’t on a raid team in my guild, so I was mostly soloing and doing LFR for…

Blog Challenge #28: Blizzcon Your Way

Z and Cinder want to know what I would have done with the next expansion and what I would have announced at Blizzcon for this topic. Well, in a serendipitous sense of timing, the same day this topic came out on their blog, I actually wrote about my thoughts on Battle for Azeroth’s story and…

Top 10 Races I’d love to become Allied Races

One of the best parts of the announcement about Allied Races is the idea that they want to expand it over time. So right here, I’m gonna talk about the 11 races I want to see added to this system! Simple enough right? Let’s do this. Disclaimer: I reserve the right to group races together…

My thoughts on Battle For Azeroth

So we know what’s next in store for World of Warcraft after Legion, and it’s the Battle for Azeroth, an expansion which, at first glance, seems to focus entirely on a renewed conflict between the Alliance and the Horde. We don’t yet know a great deal of the story surrounding how this renewed war starts,…

Blog Challenge #27: How do you find the time?

Z and Cinder are curious how I find the time to play WoW with all the real life stuff to do? Well, I’ll tell you, it’s not easy. I’m a father of two now, and those kiddos need a lot of time with daddy (and mommy too of course). Not to mention spending time with…

Blog Challenge #26: Pet Parade!

For this challenge, Z and Cinder wanna see my favorite noncombat pets. So let’s get this train a’rollin. I’m not a huge pet collector, by any means. I don’t really participate in pet battles much, I don’t go clear old raids on a weekly basis looking for those random drops off of bosses, and I…

Blog Challenge #25: Who do you cheat on WoW with?

It’s a suggestion from Ann from AnnInWonderland this time around in Z and Cinder’s blogging challenge, and she wants to know what other games I play besides World of Warcraft. Well, the answer is “At the moment, not much of anything”. Lately my life has been incredibly busy, mostly thanks to my children, and what…

Blog Challenge #24: Class Fantasy

Topic 24 from the lovely ladies known as Z and Cinder asks the following: How do you feel about the “Class Fantasy” Blizzard promised for Legion? Did it deliver or not so much? Hoo boy, do I have a lot to say on this topic. Class themes and design are one of my favorite parts…

Blog Challenge #23: Why Do You Blog About WoW? PLUS Bonus Transmog

The next challenge from Z and Cinder asks me to answer the question “Why DO you blog about WoW, Bmatt?” Uh…well that’s easy, ladies. You asked me to. Well, okay, maybe not me directly, but you did lay down the topics and ask anyone interested to write about them! Blogging about something is challenging for…

Blog Challenge #22: Your WoW Soundtrack

For this challenge, Z and Cinder, by way of fellow contributor Kamalia, want to know…..about things in WoW that make you think of other music? Specifically not music from the game itself? Huh. Sorry, maybe it’s just me, but I don’t get this challenge at all. Any good memories or screenshots I could share would…
