A couple things

First off, my trip up to Oregon the other weekend was a blast. The drive was brutal (especially on the return home), but it was a great trip. I saw a lot of friends I hadn’t seen in… well, too long. I may have sampled a few dozen tasty micro-brews while I was up there as well… 🙄 I’ve been …

Click on the images to see embiggened pics of this badass new Spirit Beast. You Hunters that are into the nifty pets… you’re going to want this guy. Trust me. I know he’s just another Spirit Beast retread with a new skin, but he’s a frickin’ bear, and a bad ass one at that! He has no special emotes, but …

How ‘Bout Them Apples

My wife’s not an ElitistJerk, but she very well could be. 😉

Talking to her about this upcoming change regarding Beast Mastery and the supposed “buff”, she took a few minutes of her time at work today to do a little theorycrafting on my behalf.

My lovely genius of a wife sat down and calculated some results based upon the upcoming “buff”, along with my estimate of a 55/45 split between Hunter and pet.

Here’s what she had to say…

While camping for Skoll a few weeks ago, I recorded a quick video snippet of the new Deterrence animation, along with my bugged Worgen under Bestial Wrath. The new Deterrence …

The Hunt For Skoll

…continues. Well at least I got to see him on the PTR today for the first time. 😀 Yaone of Lightbringer had posted earlier this morning about taming him at the Snowdrift Plains location. I saw the comment and I figured I’d log on and make a quick swoop while I was thinking about it. Lo and behold, what do …
