Blog Challenge #45: Revisit the 2018 Bucket List

Well, let’s head back to the start of the year. I made a pretty ambitious set of goals, and I know for a fact I accomplished at least a couple of them, but it wasn’t even close to half. Work out at least once a week Nope. Didn’t quite pull this off. I got sick…

Blog Challenge #43:Why Do You Choose The Games You Do?

So it’s been….almost four months since I’ve written here. Last time I was around we were talking about Blizzcon’s first day, and I never quite came back to talk about Day 2. Not sure there was much more to say that others hadn’t covered in detail. Since then we’ve seen the holidays come and go,…

Blog Challenge #42: What’s your favorite MMO Role?

If the title doesn’t make it obvious, Z and Cinder want to know my favorite role in an MMO. In other words they want me to I don’t think it will surprise anyone that the guy who plays a mage (when he isn’t trying to switch to a warlock or elemental shaman) says his favorite…

Blog Challenge #41: Why Do You Play Your Faction?

We’re coming around to the question that really defines Battle for Azeroth lately, and that’s “Why DO you play your faction?” I’ve been playing Warcraft games since Warcraft 2, and if you’d told thebmatt of those days that one day there would be a Warcraft MMORPG and he’d be playing on the Horde side, he…

Blog Challenge #40: Getting to know you

It’s coming up on the two year anniversary of this little set of challenges I’ve been writing with Z and Cinder, and now they want to get to know me, the guy behind the blog, better. To do that, they’ve provided a set of what is being called “Comfy Questions” that have apparently been floating…

Blog Challenge #39: To-do list for BFA

Z and Cinder are asking about my to-do list for BFA in this challenge topic. Honestly, I don’t particularly have a very big list at this point. I tend to establish my goals in the later part of an expansion life cycle. For now my major goals are the following Get BFA Pathfinder Level at…

Blog Challenge #38: How Do You Level?

Your topicmasters and mine wanna know “How do you level in Battle for Azeroth?” I refined my leveling strategy into the following during Legion, and I carried it over into BFA: As I’m leveling, I will do every single quest I come across. I will finish off every side quest hub/chain I can find before…

Blog Challenge #37: Battle For Azeroth in Pictures

Z and Cinder wanna see our BFA screenshots! Well, I forgot to take a bunch as I leveled, but I’ll share what I did grab! First things first, I had to take a screengrab of Oldmanfranks receiving the Heart of Azeroth. He’s still wearing the Sha-Skin Regalia transmog at this point, and it cracks me…

Blog Challenge #36: Farewell to Legion

Z and Cinder are back! We have a new topic! It’s also a 2-parter! Is “2-parter” a word? Probably not. I’m using it anyway, because I can. Anyway, let’s get crackin’. Special Programming Note: Because I was so late getting this out, tomorrow there will be two “5 Things” posts. Who will be featured? Come back tomorrow…

Blog Challenge #35: Your most badass moment in game

It’s time for the latest Blog Challenge, and this one’s all about the times when we’ve felt like awesome badasses when playing WoW.  Honestly, I’m not a great solo player. I’ve been trying the mage tower challenges whenever I can and I’m awful at them. I can’t PvP worth a dang. So I think most…

Blog Challenge #34: Your favorite reference in WoW

For this challenge, Z and Cinder are asking about my favorite real-world reference in World of Warcraft. I admit, I knew right away what I wanted mine to be, but due to various sicknesses and or busy weekends, I haven’t had time to put thoughts to text, until now. And if the side image doesn’t…

Blog Challenge #33: Design Your Own Achievement

I realize I’m a bit late with this one, I usually try to have a post up every Saturday, but I was pretty messed up this past week. It involved a newly adopted dog, some allergies going into overdrive, not being able to take any medicine while waiting for an appointment with an allergist, and…

Blog Challenge #32: Allied Races

Z and Cinder wanna know if I’m playing any of the new Allied Races, and what I’d love the next Allied Race to be. So let’s go through what I’ve done so far. We’ll start with the Horde. This is Merf, my new Highmountain Tauren shaman. I knew pretty much right away that I wanted to…

Blog Challenge #31: Your Favorite Mount

This time around, Z and Cinder want to know what my favorite mount is. This will prove a bit challenging (heh) for me, because I have a LOT of mounts that I love for various reasons. There’s mounts that I love for practical reasons, ones that I love for the lore tied to them and…

Blog Challenge #30: 2018 Bucket List

Uh….oops. Sorry Z and Cinder, looks like I jumped the gun on this one. Should have guessed this would be your first topic. Then again, I suppose I’ve almost missed this week’s blog for my own goals, so I guess I should thank you for a quick cop-out, I suppose. I haven’t made much progress…
