Like a mage in a bottle…

It’s the Cataclysm. We’re a heartbeat from flying.. but it’s still a long way from point A to point B. Here’s some shortcuts:

Argent Crusader’s Tabard
Direbrew’s Remote
Boots of the Bay

I feel like we should start having a “best route” application like you can use to figure out what busses to take to get across the [...]

12% less epic

Patch 4.0.3a is going live today. Azeroth is shattered. I’m .. perplexed how I feel about it. It’s weird that weeks in advance I knew exactly when the world would end (or at least shatter). It’s like Y2K. I had plenty of time to prep for it.. but really.. I didn’t do [...]

Unexpected Victory

It's like progression only personal

– Fiddled my UI (a lot)(fiancé was [...]
