Played around a bit on WoD Beta

I played around a bit on World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor Beta thanks to a friend. I made a premade hunter. The lack of serpent sting taking up a keybind is a bit weird. Because I have my pattern memorized with survival hunter and having that button difference is strange. Also the lack of an interrupt is horrible too.

The cute little tiny Dark Portal. Seriously it's cute. Deadly, but cute.

Everyone's trying to click on the Banner for an opening quest. Seriously, Blizz let's learn a lesson from last expansion and Timeless Isle. 80 people cannot click on the same item at the same time. This WILL be a problem.

Wildstar Beta & Heroes of the Storm Alpha

I’ve been working on 2 games today… Wildstar Beta is going along. My Chua is level 10 and my Exile Human settler is level 12 I think.

I also logged into Heroes of the Storm Alpha and finished the tutorial to show the game to a friend. It’s not my style of game. I can just see people not getting along and I get very nervous about playing with others. I got several photos to share later just from poking around in Heroes of the sTorm.

Daily Journal: Want to do vs Actually do

I want to do many things. I want to gear all my World of Warcraft characters. I want to finish the hunter book. I want to farm all the mounts I don’t have. I want to level the last 2 classes I don’t have at 90. I want to level my horde characters. I want to do Photo 365..

 

What I actually do: Play for an hour then log off and read some book not even in my To Read backlog. Or just go to bed.

My 2 predictions for the next World of Warcraft expansion were:

 

  • The Burning Legion – I mean Wrathion pretty much flat out said they were coming.
  • wibbly-wobbley-timey-whimy kinds of things…

 

Looks like I get to combine them a bit.

 

Basic premise of the new expansion: Garrosh escapes and with the help of a “friend” goes back in Draenor time to stop the orcs from drinking the blood of Mannoroth. He creates his new ideal of an Iron Horde.

 

It’s was slipped in one of the panels that the “friend” was Kariozdormu. Most of us level 90s probably know him better as Kairoz from the Timeless Isle who gives us the strange vision quests.

 

I’m excited to see quite a few things along with the new story.

 

  • New character models. There’s a possibility not all will be ready at launch, but they are quite a bit better with real facial movement. And the gnomes! the new female gnome models.
  • Garrisons. These kinda seem like a cross between the farm and SWTOR’s missions for your companions. Not really sure how the levels, qualities and adventurers are going to work out, but sounds interesting.
  • Collections. OMG I need this now. Toybox UI, Heirloom UI, being able to favorite mounts.
  • Increasing profession supplies stack size.
  • Quest items are no longer in your bag!!! I’m sold right here.

 

Missed a few days for NaBloPoMo, but getting back into the grove.
