These are my rough notes. I haven’t had a whole lot of time for the beta, just a few hours spread across weekends (planning a wedding is a real time suck). I don’t really feel like spending much time polishing them up into formal responses (I’d rather spend that time on the BfA guides), but I’d like to put them somewhere at least in this preliminary form.

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.

I finally got around to updating almost all the bosses (I haven’t seen mythic Argus yet) with details for mythic! This has been a rough winter and busy spring for me, so I’m sorry it took so long! Hope it’s still helpful. :)
Also, we’ve covered a lot of stuff on the podcast too. Here are some of the latest episodes that might be informative!
- Legion Retro with Sloot and Graf: Slootbag and Grafarion return to discuss Antorus, Legion, and Battle for Azeroth.
- Mythic Varimathras: Sunnier and Arielle recap Mythic Varimathras and talk about clearing Antorus on alts.
- Mythic Imonar and Kin’garoth and BfA: Sunnier and Arielle recap a lot of the recent BfA news, and cover two new bosses in Mythic Antorus.
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”
This is ridiculous.
I just want to start with that statement, since arguing for what classes should be available to what races has always been a pointless endeavour in World of Warcraft. If I was a wise person, I’d let it rest and give in to the inevitability of playing what feels like my perfect race as a different class (I mean Sunnier and a race of hooved, big-horned, tattooed light people?!).
But I spent all of Blizzcon obnoxiously telling everyone who would listen about why I thought lightforged should be playable as monks, so I’m going to finish out with this little blog post and leave it at that. Worst comes to worst, I’ll continue as my vanilla-Draenei monk, or play a warrior as one of my mains in Battle for Azeroth, or convince my guild to become traitors to the Alliance so that I can live as the other love of my life — the hooved, antlered, tattooed/painted race of Highmountain Tauren.
Social media during raids destroys my concentration. I’ll read something and get emotional in one way or another and think about that instead of keeping my head in the game. That’s fine sometimes, but during progression raids it is deeply distracting and makes me forget things like countdowns and cooldowns. So here are things I’ve been trying to do to keep myself from checking Twitter between pulls.
- Summon a random pet and think about how great that pet is.
- Summon Pepe.
- Change my title.
- Change my transmog if I’m in a mountable zone.
- Think about what I should change your transmog to if I’m not in a mountable zone.
- Use a toy.
- Look at warcraft logs (wow little miss productive raider aren’t we).
- Admire everyone else’s transmog.
- /dance or /silly
- Play some music on random and think about the song that pops up.
- Think about what I’m really doing here. I could be asleep on the couch right now.
- Pet a cat.
