Tomorrow the gates of Azshara’s fabulous Eternal Palace open, giving us a brand new raid, with loads of new boss butts to kick. And with it (hopefully) will come some answers as to the next part of the… Read More
Can’t I just go back to a week ago, when I was ignorant? Please? It was more fun then.
We’ve been progressing on mythic Jaina for 2 weeks now. We’re at 200 pulls and seeing third phase, so we’re actually doing pretty well in comparison to some other guilds. But it is a hard slog, without a… Read More
Ok, ok I’m late for my own blog challenge. Oops! For topic 37 we are sharing our first impressions of Battle for Azeroth in pictures. The challenge was 5 pictures… look, no-one thought I’d actually do just 5,… Read More
Every time I think about the book, I keep thinking about hope, and what it means to lose it. And what becomes of the person who does.
I’ve been wanting to do something for my guild for quite some time. I’ve grown so fond of my guildies, and I wanted to say thank you.
It has been a very long time coming (thanks my slow-ass levelling skills) but this weekend I finally finished collecting all of the class mounts. I’m officially finished!

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!
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.
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…
Hey, what a surprise, I’m behind on posting responses to our blog challenges! That is so unlike me! 😉 Clearly I have a lot of catching up to do, and rather than starting at where I last left off,… Read More
Well, I find myself here once again where the team I’m raiding with has crumbled.
I did the thing!!!
So the secret finding community has been at it again, and with the launch of 7.2.5 they discovered how to get the gorgeous Sun Darter Hatchling pet. It’s quite the puzzle, and incredible of them to have figured it out!
This week the Tomb of Sargeras opened. ~*~spoilers ahead~*~
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.
Anyone who knows me knows that I love collecting transmog pieces.
Truth be told, I’ve been feeling pretty lost in WoW lately.
I really struggled with this topic, which is why it’s late! I thought long and hard about which areas in WoW reminded me of home….
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.
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.
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.
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!!
Patch 7.2 started for us Aussies on Wednesday. It was eerie going back to the Broken Shore….
This evening I was pottering around Dalaran. I wandered out of the kitchen and noticed a door I had been running past all expansion. Of course I had to go see what was in there.
I doubt this will come as a surprise to anyone who follows my blog or twitter!
I have been extremely lucky this evening…
The journey to find all 3 mage hidden artifact appearance is complete!
I think this is one of the trickiest topics we’ve had for this challenge. For me, when it comes to designing my zone, I had to think about what I liked most about existing zones in WoW.
It sure has been quiet around here, hasn’t it? To say things have been chaotic in my life right now is a bit of an understatement, and it has obviously been affecting all the “extra-curricular” things I do in my life – this blog included.
The Real Neat Blog Awards are doing the rounds at the moment, and the lovely Z nominated me – thanks Z! 🙂 I love things like this because it helps people find some great new blogs to read, and gives a bit of an insight into other authors.
So, world quests. I personally love world quests. The main reason being that I just love being able to choose to do the quests that give me the rewards I want.
It’s a sad time for anyone who feels their class has moved beyond something they can connect with, and I feel for anyone who has to go through it.
Last Sunday morning I had the absolute delight and pleasure to be a guest on Stone and Leeta’s show, WoW Challenges Podcast. I had such a lovely time with them, and was super excited to get to speak to Stone for the first time ever.
I’m stealing Z’s blog idea and posting a screenshot from each month of 2016 as a way of saying farewell to it.
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…

It’s that time of year, where I start making lists of things I want to get done over the Christmas break.
I don’t know about others, but for me the dream is to have an NPC named after me in WoW. I know, so lame, but how awesome would that be?! Getting to see yourself in game – what a treat! But what would an NPC in WoW be like if it were based on me? Now that I had to think about.
This week’s topic came about as a result of Z cheering me up one day. I was at work having a miserable day and she was telling me all the wonderful things I could look forward to about heading into Azeroth when I got home. It’s such an awesome topic!
It’s been a pretty successful week of raiding this week!
So I think the initial intent of this topic was to talk about the dos and don’ts of pugging, and how to run one. But I haven’t done that for such a long time, so I’m just going to write about my thoughts on the current state of pugging. It’s quite a ramble – I just woke up from a super long nap and I’m quite dopey still!
This week started the 12th birthday celebrations for World of Warcraft. It’s crazy that a game this old is still this popular, although I understand it. The topic we chose for the challenge this week is an opportunity to take a step back and look at how this game has impacted our lives. Because let’s face it – WoW can have a massive impact.
My lovely friend Zeirah and I have turned our weekly blog challenge into a public blog challenge for anyone to participate in. Each week there is a new topic for everyone to write about and share. You can… Read More
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?
Ok so this week we’re taking things a little easier (or so we thought!) by having our topic this week be our top 5 favourite screen shots that we’ve taken in Legion.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Can I just take a minute to say how absolutely AMAZING Legion has been so far? And look how darn beautiful it is!
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!!
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
So I finally got the chance to transfer my mage back over to the Alliance. I was having troubles trying to decide what race to make her. She has SO much transmog…
I needed a little break, but I’m back now!
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.
