Blog: My thoughts on the new female Draenei model

Posted by Raedel, July 19, 2014 12:10 pm

With the announcement that the new female Draenei model had been added to the beta I jumped right in to check it out. I’ve always liked the Draenei, even their refrigerator men, but something about this new model is a bit.. off. I can’t put my finger on what it is but there’s just something […]

Blog: Finding a new guild

Posted by Raedel, July 7, 2014 9:41 am

So I’ve been out of the WoW raiding scene for a few months. I stopped raiding on my Mistweaver monk after months of Throne of Thunder, because I just wasn’t enjoying WoW at the time. I felt like I was being forced to play when I didn’t want to, even though I always enjoyed raiding […]

Blog: What keeps me coming back to WoW

Posted by Raedel, June 28, 2014 5:11 pm

I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, why is it that every time I quit WoW I always come back. I think the longest I have ever been unsubbed for is roughly a month. Yet I can continue to pay my sub and not play at all for 3 months and be content. As […]

Blog: Shared Topic: Boosted Toons

Posted by Raedel, June 23, 2014 9:26 pm

So I admittedly haven’t browsed Blog Azeroth in quite a while, but I saw a tweet that reminded me about it and it’s awesome shared blog topic forum, so I hastily returned to the site looking to join in on some shared topics. There aren’t many up at the time of writing this, but there […]

Blog: Australian Latency Problems

Posted by Raedel, June 15, 2014 8:54 pm

Everyone has dealt with lag while playing an online game at one time or another, but for most of us Australians it’s a permanent and sometimes game breaking problem. In some games a little bit of a delay won’t make much of a difference, but for others it’s the difference between a victory and a […]

Blog: Raedel in Wonderland

Posted by Raedel, June 8, 2014 6:15 pm

I really wish I had more time during the week to play. I find myself feeling guilty playing video games on my weekends now instead of doing more important things, like shopping for food or hanging out with friends. But with Wildstar it’s not so bad, because no matter how long it takes me to […]

Blog: Where I’ve been, and Wildstar Release!

Posted by Raedel, June 1, 2014 11:53 am

Hey all, long time no see. Yeah, totally my fault. I got caught up in real life and had little to no time to play games, let alone blog about them! So what happened? Short version, I got a job! For those interested in a longer version, I finished my University degree at the end […]

Blog: #WoW30 Day 3: Favourite Racial Leader(Horde)

Posted by Raedel, April 4, 2014 10:02 pm

This is a tough one. It was a tie between Vol’jin and Lady Sylvannas. Before Cataclysm and Pandaria, I would have said Lady Sylvannas, no question about it. She is a complete bad ass, and strong female character, and I really love the undead lore and general feel to their questing zones. But with the […]

Blog: #WoW30 Day 2: Favourite Racial Leader (Alliance)

Posted by Raedel, April 3, 2014 8:21 pm

Today’s topic is ‘Favourite Racial Leader (Alliance)’. Surprisingly it was actually a hard decision, not because there were so many I liked, but because I felt like I knew nothing about the leaders at all. Which isn’t entirely true and is probably because I just got home from work and am starving waiting for my […]

Blog: #WoW30 day challenge – Day 1: Alliance or Horde?

Posted by Raedel, April 2, 2014 7:15 pm

Since I haven’t written a blog in over a month (started a new job, yay for me!) I’ve been itching to post something but was fresh out of ideas. Then I saw Amerpriests twitter post about her new blog post relating to day one of a 30 day WoW blogging challenge. I thought it was […]

Blog: Ally of the Netherwing!

Posted by Raedel, March 2, 2014 3:39 pm

So I’ve been working on my Netherwing rep this past week for the first time since I started it (but never finished) on my priest in Burning Crusade. And I’ve finally hit exalted! This is the first time, on any toon, that I have had a Netherwing drake mount and I am so happy about […]

Blog: Improving WoW professions

Posted by Raedel, February 24, 2014 2:52 pm

[WoW Insider] has posted a community blog topic regarding professions [Community Blog Topic: How to make professions better] that I thought I’d throw my two cents into. Professions in WoW aren’t overly interesting, especially towards the end of an expansion. Everything you can make is sort of out-dated (unless you’re an enchanter or jewelcrafter!) and […]

Blog: What I’ve been up to

Posted by Raedel, February 22, 2014 5:26 pm

So, I haven’t blogged in a while. Sorry ’bout that! I just sort of felt that I didn’t have anything interesting to blog about, but I probably do haha. My Paladin is now 549 ilvl and I, only YESTERDAY, replaced the blue quality ilvl 476 PvP shield I was using to tank with. Yeah, I’ve […]

Tank Strat: Siege of Orgrimmar: Immerseus

Posted by Raedel, February 6, 2014 5:22 pm

Immerseus is the first boss you will encounter in the Siege of Orgrimmar raid. The mechanics are very simple: avoid the bad, kill the adds, and tank swap at 1 stack. For those of you tanking this boss for the first time I’m going to go into detail about what needs to be done to […]
