Mists of Pandaria: Two Enthusiastic Thumbs Up

Mists of Pandaria: Two Enthusiastic Thumbs Up
I’ll be getting back into action with my own column soon, but for now I wanted to bring you highlights from World of Warcraft’s fantastic new expansion, Mists of Pandaria, which released on September 25th. You might recall that when Blizzard released news about this expansion there were many who thought it was an offensive joke, and I was certainly at the head of that crowd. With ten months of... 

Diablo 3 – Hardcore and Lovin’ it

Diablo 3 - Hardcore and Lovin' it
I’ve been absent from my column for a few months due to the winding down of guild activity (and the absolute lack of anything remotely resembling conflict) at the end of the Cataclysm expansion. However, I haven’t left WoW and will be back to my regularly scheduled programming around here when Mists of Pandaria is imminent. In the meantime, Michael and I have been distracting... 

Raids of Warcraft: Dragon Soul — Spine of Deathwing

Raids of Warcraft: Dragon Soul -- Spine of Deathwing
At long last the group has finally caught up to Deathwing.  With the assistance of Thrall, the Dragon Aspects, and the Dragon Soul itself, at last there’s a real good chance of taking out the Destroyer.  Well, at least there would be, if Thrall could get in another good shot with the Dragon Soul.  Fortunately he has a pretty impressive group of heroes standing by, just ready to take on such an... 

Raids of Warcraft: Dragon Soul — Warmaster Blackhorn

Raids of Warcraft: Dragon Soul -- Warmaster Blackhorn
After an extended break, we’re finally back!  Although come on now, don’t say you didn’t enjoy the holiday vacation.  And if you skipped out on visiting family because you had a raid scheduled, shame on you!  That is, unless your whole family is in the raiding business…?  In which case, well, sure hope you got that shiny new epic you wanted.  Holidays aside, we have work to do if we’re... 

Raids of Warcraft: Dragon Soul — Ultraxion

Raids of Warcraft: Dragon Soul -- Ultraxion
Don’t be too surprised if this week’s encounter starts out as a bit of a brick wall.  There is a very clear step up in difficulty going into the last wing of Dragon Soul, when compared to the first half of the raid.  While not every boss will be tossing curve-ball mechanics, all of them will press the raid’s raw numbers – success will depend on players’ abilities with their own class as... 

Raids of Warcraft: Dragon Soul — Hagara the Stormbinder

Raids of Warcraft: Dragon Soul -- Hagara the Stormbinder
The goal this week is to finish the Siege of Wyrmrest portion of the Dragon Soul raid.  Three of the four bosses in this opening segment have been cleared — only one to go.  Next up, Hagara the Stormbinder.  A friendly reminder that the encounter discussion here is based upon the 10-man normal difficulty version of this raid.  If you want to talk Raid Finder, I’d say try it out for yourself. ... 

Raids of Warcraft: Dragon Soul — Warlord Zon’ozz and Yor’sahj the Sleeping

Raids of Warcraft: Dragon Soul -- Warlord Zon'ozz and Yor'sahj the Sleeping
It hasn’t taken any time at all for guilds and pick-up groups alike to tear through the Dragon Soul raid, and since progress is being made so quickly, we’re covering the next two bosses this week.  Things get a little more complicated this time around, but still nothing to stress over.  Some of the mechanics are even rather amusing!  So let’s quit wasting time and get started before we’re... 

Raids of Warcraft: Dragon Soul — Morchok

Raids of Warcraft: Dragon Soul -- Morchok
We’re back from a short break, and just in time for the launch of patch 4.3, “Hour of Twilight.”  New dungeons, new raids, new loot… All the usual goodies.  Of course the biggest attraction by far is the raid instance itself, Dragon Soul.  Thanks to the addition of the new Raid Finder tool, it should be even easier for non-raiding individuals to step into this tier of content, at a reduced... 

Raids of Warcraft: Firelands — Heroic Alysrazor

Raids of Warcraft: Firelands -- Heroic Alysrazor
Up to this point, our stroll through Heroic Firelands has been fairly smooth, for the most part.  Well, get ready for some surprise speed bumps, as the last three bosses are easily the hardest of the bunch, as we start drifting away from a simple new mechanic or two and begin seeing radical changes to the encounters as a whole.  Large sections of old strategies may very well be invalidated going... 

Raids of Warcraft: Firelands — Heroic Lord Rhyolith and Beth’tilac

Raids of Warcraft: Firelands -- Heroic Lord Rhyolith and Beth'tilac
For anyone who’s been watching the PTR, you know that the next patch (and subsequently, the next tier of raiding) is fast approaching, leaving precious little time to power through the rest of Heroic Firelands before it becomes obsolete in the face of entirely new challenges.  Fortunately, we already have a solid progression foothold on that front.  With two bosses down and only five to go, it’s...
