Draenor Curator

Hell yeah, baby! I’m done with Archaeology – at least for another expansion. It was really starting to feel like those pristine solves were taking a lot longer to complete so I decided to compare them with the ones from Pandaria. Draenor Ogre: 243 Draenor: 287 Arakkoa: 271 Total: 1072 Pandaria Mantid: 264 Pandaren: 298 Mogu: 668 Total: 1230 Yeah… it really wasn’t. I ended up using 30 randomisers but they ended...

Seeing Stars

Tonight it was all about archaeology (mostly). I had just completed a common Draenor project in Frostfire when the next one revealed the Ancient Frostwolf Fang: In life, no two creatures will share a stronger relationship than that of a Frostwolf orc and his or her companion wolf. The two eat, sleep, and fight side by side until one or both dies an honorable death. Even then, sometimes not even death itself can stop a frostwolf from...

Archaeologists Rejoice!

As probably the most exciting news to come since… my own npc, I have some awesome news to share. Ever since the Toy Box was revealed, I’ve wondered whether Blizz would be able to restore all those archaeology items we’ve destroyed over the years for room. In fact, it’s something I’ve mentioned and asked several times on Twitter but I now have a definitive answer. @Cymre one of our engineers produced some...

The Crystal Jewel

The other day, I was reminded of a recent visit to Questacon, our National Science and Technology Centre where my favourite exhibit involved swapping a rather large jewel with a bag of sand. Swap a ‘diamond’ sitting on a pressure sensor with a bag of sand, so you don’t wake the statue Much like the Indiana Jones movie, the skull (or in this case, diamond) was sitting on a pressure sensitive plate so you can see the...

Pets Behaving Badly

Getting your pets to pose for a photo can be quite difficult at times. This one’s always falling asleep on the job. OK, so this one’s not technically a pet but this huge thing tried to bite my head off  while Burgy was trying to decapitate me. I don’t think Burgy was too keen on having his picture taken. If you treat your pets well, it will feel like you’ve been bathed in a beam of warm and holy (well,...

Adventures of Cymre Jones

It’s been a couple of months since I had my wild adventure in the Dawning Woods Catacombs. From the beginning, I had a few close calls with a Writhing Terror and some nasty looking rats but with my trusty creepy crate in tow, they were no match. Little did I know that I would be walking into a den of ghouls. Once I was spotted by a particularly disease-riddled ghoul, I made a hasty retreat but ended up hiding out, (err I mean)...
