World of warcraft returning player trial
When Crucible of Storms arrives on April 16th, World of Warcraft players will have another opportunity to participate in a “mini raid”. These small-scale raids usually feature three or fewer bosses. Crucible of Storms is similar in scope to the Trial of Valor mini-raid that was released in Legion. Until Trial, however, that was released as part of a major patch (7.1), Crucible is coming in a “half patch”, something sort of unusual. … [Read more...] about What’s New in World of Warcraft 8.1.5?
Festivals, achievements and more still are a large part of what brings the community together. New players don’t have to see and do it all at once too. The best thing about WoW is that you make your own path. Eventually, you’ll progress through the story as its current at Blizzard will have many ways to get you through that with catch up mechanics. While recent cinematics are gated behind Raid completion, the LFR works for casuals. And that’s a bonus. … [Read more...] about Is World of Warcraft Fun To Play Now That Battle For Azeroth Is Progressing?

I will say that the pre-BFA event was pretty damn exciting. The burning of Teldrassil and the siege of Lordaeron Ruins? Sylvanas sacrificing the Horde and resurrecting them as mindless undead? There’s a lot of speculation on what this all means, but I’m going to put my chips in the “Old Gods Warring” pile. It’s my opinion that the Old Ones have taken sides and are causing the destruction of Azeroth as we know it. So now we have moved to Kul’Tiras (Alliance) and Zandalar (Horde). Each faction having their own island is interesting, and they are absolutely gorgeous. Though I did focus on the Horde side of events, I do have a 110 on the Alliance side I’m going to take through to see the other side of the story. I have taken a tour of both islands and all six of the leveling zones (three per island) are scenic and breathtaking. If there’s one thing Blizzard can do, it’s set the stage for a story. “Battle for Azeroth” feels … [Read more...] about World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Review
