Bigger Bag My Ass!

Ah, the Monstrous Spineclaw, what a painful rare to spawn. Considering the fact I’ve been trying to spawn this elusive creature consistently over the last few weeks makes for a very boring grind indeed. I suspected the Spineclaw Crab would be the last item I’d need for this mother of an achievement but it also proved to be the only thing that kept me going. Just look at that drop rate – 1.74% according to WoWHead. I...

So Close

For the past three weeks, I’ve been down to my last three items – the Ordon Death Chime, Warning Sign and the Spineclaw Crab.

According to WoWHead, it’s a 6% drop but that seems higher than it really is. I was excited to use it after seeing all the people around me getting one so I wanted to try it on Cool until I realised I had to use it on an enemy....

Smashing Rocks and Bubbles

When you spend so much time on a certain little isle, it’s doesn’t take much to break the monotony so after killing countless rock giants between Jakur of Ordon spawns, I had the sudden urge to kite one into the mysterious den. My worst case scenario had him stomping and throwing boulders only as far as the entrance so I was happy to see him follow me inside. The things you do to amuse yourself when it’s late and...
