So I know it’s been a while and since RL has been keeping me pretty busy – I started my own business last year so that’s where a lot of my focus has been – there hasn’t been too much to do in WoW so I’ve suspended my subscription for the first time in 13 years! Now I have to admit, not letting my subscription lapse til now has been pretty cool but once my account went inactive, I was expecting to take a break for several months until this happened a week later…

I was extremely excited to get an alpha invite since I’d never had one so early but my excitement waned when I had trouble launching the game on both computers. I tried several troubleshooting suggestions and as a last-ditch effort submitted a ticket which offered a few more suggestions. Sadly, the second GM confirmed my graphics card was just too old to support the new requirements for the game – namely DirectX 11. /cry
Well, there goes any exciting video content for the time being. Sorry Patrons, readers and subscribers. Hopefully, there are some who will still find my content useful but I’ll be sure to post some interesting content from the alpha when I can – like the fact we’ll have new pet battle world quests and dungeons coming in BfA. As well as more options to permanently change the look of some pets like Uuna and possible new pet rescues, etc. like Grumpy or the bear cub. :)
If you’re like me and in need of an upgrade, check out the system requirements you’ll need to run the game.
In other news, they finally revealed the contents of the Collector’s Edition and I have to say, it doesn’t seem like you’re getting that much for the price. Notably absent are the physical items you’d expect but a digital soundtrack, and no art book or mouse pad.
I for one, loved the mouse pads from previous expansions, although I haven’t bought a Collector’s Edition since Cataclysm. That’s the main reason I’m still using Deathwing after all these years. From some of the comments, not too many people are impressed with the contents, or lack thereof.
What do you think? Will you be ordering one or just the Digital Deluxe?
