Bye Bye, Pandaren

Tomorrow patch 8.1.5 arrives in World of Warcraft, and with it comes the much-anticipated allied races of Kul’Tiran humans and Zandalari trolls (along with a WHOLE bunch of awesome content!) I am beyond excited (as usual) for new… Read More

Children of the sea

It seems the Warcraft development team are back at work, because this week the first official Patch 8.1.5 PTR went up. And there’s a lot of great stuff in there. As usual, Wowhead are going through and presenting… Read More

On the move

It’s been 2 lockouts since Realm disbanded. It’s been weird not raiding. I played a whooole lot less. The break was nice in a way, but to be honest one of the main reasons I wasn’t playing as… Read More

My BfA levelling adventure

How has it been a month since Battle for Azeroth launched? Holy moly time passes quickly. I suppose a bit part of that is about how completely flat out I’ve been in game. Which leads me in to… Read More

Pre-patch makeover

I really love a new pre-patch. There’s something about it that makes me feel like I’ve got a clean slate. It’s a new beginning which means new opportunities to kick butt in game and have new adventures. It’s… 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

Lost

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

Thank you Coolidge!!!

I’ve said quite a few times how wonderful the WoW community can be. From organising fundraisers, to helping each other out, to just being super awesome people. This week I was lucky enough to be the recipient of some generosity from the WoW community.

Seeing Azeroth in a new light

Like so many other people, I have been running around taking screenshots using the Inky Black Potion. What a wonderful addition to the game that little potion is!!

Restoration shaman treats

I have been extremely lucky this evening…

Classy! part 2

One of my goals during the summer down time has been to unlock all of my class halls. Today, I finished that. This is Part 2…

Splishy splashy woes

The new raid week started for us last night and we absolutely powered through a full heroic clear in no time at all. Then we went in to mythics and cleared Mythic Nythendra on just the second pull…. Read More

Z & Cinder’s blog challenge – favourite Legion dungeon

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 our favourite Legion dungeon.

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.

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.

Decision made

Regular readers will know that I’ve been ummming and ahhhing about how to level in Legion – do I want to make it as quick as possible by levelling as DPS but potentially causing troubles for my healing… Read More

Call of the World Shaman

Somebody on twitter reminded me of the Call of the World Shaman quest line from Cataclysm the other day. I did this quest chain once on my paladin but I was so new to the game at the time… Read More

Changing of the tides

One of the good things about keeping expectations in check is that when you are looking forward to an announcement, if it’s not super exciting, you’re prepared. It’s for this reason that I’m not overly disappointed with the… Read More

Glyph of Ascendance

So I just learned about Glyph of Ascendance! I’m really excited about this. The Wowhead video above shows what they all look like. The only downside is that I already struggle with wanting too many other minor glyphs!… Read More

Mythic Blackrock Foundry

I’ve been raiding with my new team for a couple of weeks now. We are currently 5/10 mythic, which I am incredibly happy with. Sunday last week we managed to get down Mythic Flamebender Ka’graz and Mythic Gruul… Read More

Purple fire

I made a new transmog yesterday – a purple fire set. I really like it. I think it’s something a bit different, anyway. 🙂 So naturally I had to take some screenshots the dark place behind Scholomance. I… Read More

It’s elemental!

I’m still doing my trial with the new raid team. This week seemed a bit rough – they had a few people missing, but thankfully were ok with pugging some people so we eventually got the 20 to… Read More

Legendary Tarecgosa

Well, it took me 9 months of on and off farming, but I have finally finished the Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa’s Rest legendary quest line.  During the countless Firelands runs I did, I managed to see Flametalon of Alysrazor drop twice,… Read More

Thank you Sleeping Fox!!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m so excited about these. I commissioned the incredibly talented Sleeping Fox to do a chibi of my shaman, Cinderstorm (top) and my boyfriend’s monk, Thorfu (bottom). She finished them yesterday AND LOOK HOW DAMN ADORABLE THEY… Read More

Blasting the elements

So raiding went alright on Sunday. We actually did quite well, one-shotting Heroic Flamebender as well as Kromog (who we only got down for the first time last week!)  We spent most of the night progressing on Iron Maidens. I… Read More

I have some lovely followers. Thank you to everyone who messaged me after my giant whinge the other day. You’re all wonderful and kind and lovely. ❤ I do feel a bit better. I’ve taken trollmonk​’s advice and… Read More

I’ve been feeling a bit crap about things lately. It’s why I haven’t been posting on here all that much. I’m going through a “I completely suck at this game, why do I bother playing it” phase. Mostly… Read More

Healing Heroic Highmaul – The Butcher

The Butcher getting in to the Festive Spirit! I’m putting together some short healer-based posts for each of the bosses in the Highmaul raid tier. Hopefully they’ll be useful for some fellow healers (my focus is on restoration… Read More

Brawler’s Guild – all done!

Brawler’s Guild – done! Yet another thing that I didn’t think I’d have the skill or time to do. Out of curiosity I took my shaman in to Brawler’s Guild to for a bit of a muck around…. Read More

Challenge Modes

For the past two weeks some of us guildies got together and worked our way through the challenge mode dungeons. At some silly hour on Saturday night, we finished our last one! Gold wins for us all! Of… Read More
