As usual, I’ll be updating over the next few weeks (and months for mythic) as I experience these fights myself.
We did something extra special for our 100th episode — a live show! Arielle and I streamed on Twitch with webcams and everything.
The stream is up on Twitch if you want to watch. We will also be uploading the mp3 to the normal places.Watch Tankcast Episode 100! from SunnierBear on www.twitch.tv
All normal and heroic bosses have been updated with my experiences from live. All mythic bosses have notes on them now, and I’ll clean those notes up as I experience those bosses on live.
They’ve been ready for a while now, but perhaps we could all use a little reminder now that the expansion is here.
I tried a few new things for these, like adding tank-relevant details for trash, even where to skip some (at least in heroic and mythic, skipping is pointless in normal when you need exp). I also tried to add directions on how to navigate some of the more confusing dungeons. Hopefully it’s useful!
As for me, I’m sitting on the beach in Maui on my honeymoon (this is the reason why I finished this guide a few weeks ago, I wanted it to be done before the chaos of a wedding really hit). I’ll be leveling on my laptop, though hopefully I’ll still be able to run dungeons with friends who are forgiving of my latency and limited computer resources.
The time has come to make a decision! I will be starting out maining…
I’ll still be playing my brewmaster and protection warrior, but someone needs to get leveled first and be the priority, and that’s going to be my demon hunter.
So how’d I make this decision? Well, I wrote earlier about how I needed to try a new main. I love my brewmaster, but besides briefly pushing her aside for early Legion, she’s been my main since 2012. If I want to keep playing this game with my friends (and I do), I needed to try something new.
With Legion coming to a close, I figured I needed something less demonic as my blog header, so here’s a pretty Niuzao.
If anyone has met me in person (or seen selfies), you recognize him as a colorized version of my tattoo! The artist is Melanie Steinway, and I did the color (which I will probably iterate on).
I’ve been thinking more and more than I’m going to need a change come BfA. Not that I don’t love my brewmaster, but more that I’ve been doing the same thing for six years and I need some freshness. I feel more like I’ve hit a wall in improvement on my monk, where technically I can improve, but I’m stuck in my ways and need to try something else so that later I can see it in a fresh light.

Ugh, athletics classes. Sunnier had tried all the specialties. As the child of two famous adventurers, she was supposed to be good at swordsmanship (like her holy-light-loving father) or daggers (like her slightly-more-scoundrelly mom), but neither seemed to click. Even the study of the magical arts failed to draw her attention.

With all the new allied races, I’m already imagining what all my alts should be in Battle for Azeroth. It’s all unrealistic for a number of reasons. It costs a lot of money to change races. I don’t think I could actually maintain more than one character Horde-side. I’m going to need to level up new characters to get the heritage transmogs I want. This expansion is likely a year away. Etc etc. At least I can dream. Continue reading “Microblog: Unrealistic Battle for Azeroth Race Plans”
So Battle for Azeroth! Overall quite excited for the new systems and features, though the story seems a little like…maybe there’s some big events but they don’t want to spoil them? At least that’s the feeling I got from their incomplete descriptions of raids and dungeons. Continue reading “Blizzcon Reactions”
