Topic 36: Farewell to Legion

It’s been awhile since I’ve participated in one of these challenges (which is pretty hilarious given I’m one half of the team that runs these things… ) I’m aiming to do better with these challenges, though, so here… Read More

The last of the journey to Lord of the Reins

What a big weekend! Achievements and mounts and pets – it all happened! ~*~*~*~Note there are some class campaign and class mount story spoilers in this post for Death Knight and Rogue.~*~*~*~ This weekend I managed to tick… Read More

What to do in 2018

2018 is a big year for many reasons. The most obvious being that World of Warcraft’s next expansion, Battle for Azeroth will be coming out. awww yeah!

The catch-up

It’s been awhile, so I thought I’d best do a catch-up post to let you know what I’ve been up to and what I have planned. 

Malfurion and Tyrande can get stuffed

Before Legion, I hadn’t really given Malfurion and Tyrande much thought other than Tyrande’s dress is super pretty, and Malfurion sleeps an awful lot…

There is only one word- EPIC

~*~*~*~*~SPOILERS AHEAD!! This post contains images and discussion about bosses in the new Antorus raid. If you do not want to know anything about this raid, please turn back now. ~*~*~*~*~ Anyone who has been reading my blog for awhile… Read More

Mythic not-so-sassypants-anymore!

We did it! After all the dramas we have gone through as a team over the past couple of months; after losing so many players and recruiting and trialling others, we are finally at a point where, not… Read More

Look to the skies

~*~*~*~*~ Potential spoilers ahead.~*~*~*~*~ EDIT: adding more pics of little things like this as I find them. See them at the bottom of the post.  This latest reset has seen a few new things appear in game. For… Read More

Into the Tomb

This week the Tomb of Sargeras opened. ~*~spoilers ahead~*~

Mythic Gul’doooowwwwwwwn!!!!

Well, it took us three weeks, lots of tears, frustration, swearing and hysteria, but we did it – Mythic Gul’dan is defeated! We got our Cutting Edge achievement, and new title Vengeance Incarnate.

Lost

Truth be told, I’ve been feeling pretty lost in WoW lately.

Z and Cinder’s blog challenge topic 15: I love it all!!

It’s funny, I’ve put off writing this post for awhile. Not because I don’t have anything to love about WoW, but because there is so much to love and I’m finding it difficult to pin down only a few things to talk about.

It was the best of times, it was the busiest of times!

Getting back to work has been really great – knowing I’ve got money coming in again to pay bills is a big load off my mind! But it does come with the downside of a lot less game time.

Get to the Point!

Patch 7.2 started for us Aussies on Wednesday. It was eerie going back to the Broken Shore….

Hidden mages

The journey to find all 3 mage hidden artifact appearance is complete!

Classy! part 2

Oh holy… paladin

Well ok that’s a misleading title. I keep getting random Christmas songs in my head so I dunno, it just happened. So earlier this week I was bumming around damaging eternity by killing time just kinda not really… Read More

The Dreamer

Z and Cinder’s blog challenge – thoughts on 7.1

This week patch 7.1 Return to Karazhan was released. And what a patch it is! 7.1 brings with it a new min-raid, a whole bunch of new pet battle content (including a new Raiding With Leashes achievement and wild pets to raise into mounts) and, of course, Karazhan – the mythic dungeon on steroids (plus a buch of other stuff) . So how have I been spending 7.1?

Blog challenge – saddest quest

My lovely friend Zeirah and I are challenging each other with a weekly blog post. We choose a topic and both write about. This week’s topic is the saddest quest in Legion. You can read Z’s post about her favourite right here.

For Azeroth! (part 1)

Legion has now been out for three weeks. It has been an amazing three weeks, I have to say. The Emerald Nightmare raid opened last night, so I thought it would be a good time to reflect on how Cinderstorm got to this point.

Blog challenge: favourite Legion NPC

Z and I have been chatting about Legion a fair bit lately, and it came up that we’re both feeling like we’re not blogging enough (well, I sure am not! Z has been doing quite well indeed!) Anyway, we decided to set a challenge where we would both blog about the same topic, to encourage us both to write more.

I LOVE THIS GAME!!

Can I just take a minute to say how absolutely AMAZING Legion has been so far? And look how darn beautiful it is!

HAPPY LEGION!

I hope everyone has an amazing experience levelling in Legion. Remember to eat, drink plenty of water, get some sleep, and get up to stretch your legs every now and then. But mostly – HAVE FUN!!

Melbourne Legion invasion

Last week my partner Thor and I were exceptionally lucky to be able to attend the Melbourne Legion release party, hosted by Blizzard and featuring guest visits from Celestalon and Gen St Michel

Pre-patch adventures

I knew going in to this new patch that there would be some big changes, and that things might not work. So I didn’t hold my breath that things would be ok.

We made it!

We have a pre-patch date, and it’s just a few days away!!!   Come July 19, we will have officially made it. The wait for new things to do is officially over! From here on in we’ll be… Read More
