Countdown to Warlords

With the expansion due to release on November 13 and the 10 year anniversary running between November 21 – January 6, I’m glad we have over a month to participate in these special events. More importantly, we won’t feel the need to rush to 100. The advantage of playing through the beta several times allows me to know exactly which questlines to focus on. Levelling up was surprisingly fast the first time around so...

Garrison – First Impressions

Over the last couple of days, I’ve spent some time setting up my Garrison. As you’d expect there’s a real Orcish feel which looks pretty bland but I’m hoping some sort of customisation (albeit minor) will come later on. Personally, I’d love to have some sort of racial or class feel but that may just be wishful thinking. So far I’ve set up the initial stage of my barracks and gained one follower but...

Toy Box – My Wish List

To add a toy, just right-click on any eligible item. It will no doubt be one of the first things I do on live so between that and filling up my second void storage tab, I should have a lot of room back. So after...

A New Blingtron Appears

Several days ago, Jonathan LeCraft tweeted something very interesting: This pint-sized trainer looks familiar. She might just visit your garrison in the future Check out this Gilnean child with her epic looking Diablo team. While many can relate to having only the Treasure Goblin in their collection, I was excited to see both Mini Tyrael and Mini Diablo on the PTR a while ago. I just didn’t have the heart to level them. Talk...

Pre-Order Warlords of Draenor

In the wee hours of the morning, my twitter and facebook feeds were filled with excitement about pre-purchasing the new expansion. Even with a possible release date as late as December (or as early as September) it’s hard not to wonder about a closed beta like in previous expansions. Now as much as I’d love to be involved in building my own garrison or seeing how many spots I’ll save with the toy box changes,...
