Dress for Success: Gul'dan

All across Azeroth, warlocks are looking up to one of the most influential warlocks of our times, Gul'dan. His influence has been felt for several expansions and even plays a major role for the next years to come. Elkagorasa has started collecting pieces to put together a similar set. Here's where he's at so far. Nice look, but won't pass for Gul'dan.

The shoulders miss out on the wrath style glyphs on them, but definitely have the skulls on barbs going for them.  Head:  Nightsky Cowl  - which I actually like this better than the corruptor head piece.  Belt: Primal Gladiator's Cord of Prowess  - this is a PVP piece that sells for 1750 honor .  Main hand: Headmaster's Charge which is an heirloom item. Not a great coloring, but the extra skull adds nice flavor. Have to try out some cosmetic enchan

August Status Update

It's been awhile since my last post, so I thought I'd at least share some of my progress in the game. Legion: Warlock Class Hall - A little alone time. Legion: Like many, I made sure to watch the big expansion reveal this month. I am excited about some of the things they are introducing. I think we are long overdue for a new hero class. It's all new continent, so no one can complain about 'rehashed' content. On the other hand, Class halls for warlocks? I have always seen the warlock as a loner. We rely on our minions to do our bidding. If they aren't working out, we will even go to measures of transforming ourselves into demons. So, are we going to have a phased location and don't need to share it with anyone else?? Pathfinder:  My main is about 60% complete with the reputation. As of this morning, I am 75% complete (i.e. middle of honored) for Saberstalkers and Voljin's Headhunters. I am still only at 40% through the Awakened rep (still

My Casual Legion Reaction

Feels a lot like a mashup of Burning Crusades and Wrath. We have elves, we have Valkyrs, we have mountain region loving tauren. Oh My! The Dalaran Justice League of Mages has relocated their floating city base to here.. About time they get involved again. I can only guess that it was too hard to drive their floating city to the turtle and/or through the dark portal.. Helheim: Ghost Ship dungeon As they said, everyone's FAVORITE dungeon, Violet Hold, is coming along too. (Ran this dungeon yesterday on my level 77 druid. The question came up why the guards don't simply use their aoe electric shield on all of the escaping mobs? Why bring in a group of under-geared noobs!?) Best slide of deck: Feral druid artifact weapon upgrades. You envied the warlocks and their green fire quest chain? No problem, to get your artifact weapon, every class will need to do a spec specific quest. Play a dual-spec discipline/shadow priest?? Guess what, 2 different weapo

The Royalty of Eastern Kingdoms

With all the speculation about the upcoming expansion announcement on Thursday , I'd like to throw out one more. See, the big gorilla in the room is the Warcraft movie set to come out June 2016. From what I've heard (and the leaked trailer), this movie is based off the Orcs first showing up in Kalimdor and claiming Orgrimmar. (Photoshop in a picture of you.) I'd like to postulate that the upcoming expansion will mirror this. Again we'll time travel to the not so distant past of Azeroth. The orcs HAVE come through the dark portal (patch 6.2.2) and we follow them into Azeroth. Unfortunate for us (see Quantum Leap ), we don't land in our own timeline, but a similar, but different timeline. We now must relive the founding of Orgrimmar, destruction of Stormwind and the exile of the Trolls from their homeland (which we helped them reclaim back in Cata). Fight alongside  King Llane Wrynn as he deals with the orcs streaming through the dark portal. Followed by h
