Questing in BFA has been enjoyable thus far

I really don't know where the past two days have gone. Ever since 3pm yesterday I've been playing Battle for Azeroth (minus work and RL obligations, of course... I'm not into the whole "let's play for 24 hours straight" thing anymore). 

I'm level 117 now, and so far I've completed all of Tiragarde Sound and all but one final area in Drustvar -- those are Alliance questing zones.

There are some incredibly good quest lines in these two zones. There are also quite a few of those 'filler' quests that just keep you going through the motions in a manic-like state, but every once in a while a real good story quest hits you in the face.

Our In-Game WoW Community for BFA

Battle for Azeroth launches in exactly 1 hour 30 minutes. If you're looking for people to chill with, we have a small community of people who just like to hang out. No raids, no drama, no nonsense like that. We're just chatting and having a good time.

Our in-game guild is Alliance on Fenris if you need a home. Our Discord Community and In-game Community are open to the public, so feel free to join! Simply click the images below.

Several of us are wanting to do Mythic Dungeons on a consistent basis. That's about as far as I'm preparing to go right now, but plan to keep my options open. If I find a casual raiding group that needs a healer, I'll probably look into joining.

I'm excited to dive into this expansion knowing literally nothing! I don't even know what zones there are to quest in, or how any of this story will play out. That should make for quite an entertaining couple of weeks.

Until launch, I patiently wait next to Magni with the rest of the zerg.

Here’s what I’m playing on BFA eve

This weekend was pretty good for games. BFA comes out tomorrow, so I tried to to load up on a variety of games pass the time.

No Man’s Sky

Graev and I are taking our time exploring. We had a minor frustrating moment when we couldn’t figure out why I had a quest he didn’t have, when neither of us has played without the other. I have an Awakening quest that says something about exploring the universe and he doesn’t. We both chose the same options. Anyone know anything about that? Also, when we both entered the first big anomaly and docked with it, I talked to the little guy and he gave me a choice for an upgrade but Graev wasn’t offered one. That was yet again frustrating for him. Would love input there from any of you vets.

Otherwise, we’re having fun exploring. It’s a bit of a slog at times to spend -so- much time gathering resources. That’s probably my biggest critique. I love flying, exploring, fighting, etc., but there’s a huge emphasis on gathering resources and not much time on using them. In fact, the very act of gathering resources leads to needing more resources to recharge the item I’m using to gather resources.

I didn’t like Call of Duty Black Ops 4

I was looking for something to pass the time until BFA on Monday, so I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to install and try out the Call of Duty Black Ops 4 open beta. I always have the itch to try out the newest Call of Duty game, though I’v resisted that itch for the past few iterations.

The itch goes back to my CoD4-MW2 days when I’d log between 200 and 400 hours without breaking a sweat. That’s pretty good for me in a shooter game. I wasn’t half bad at them back then, either.

My first impression of Black Ops 4 was that it was really involved. I was going to say complicated, but that’s the wrong word — involved is too. There’s just a lot going on. CoD used to be a really pure experience. You get in, you pick your guns you want, you maybe put on attachments if it’s one of the newer ones, then you just run around and shoot. That’s changed quite a bit.

The Classes of Pantheon

Pantheon's August newsletter revealed the last of the classes the upcoming MMORPG will have available at launch. Do they remind you of anything?

  • Summoner
  • Wizard
  • Enchanter
  • Druid
  • Cleric
  • Shaman
  • Ranger
  • Rogue
  • Monk
  • Warrior
  • Dire Lord
  • Paladin
  • If you answered, "those are the classes in EverQuest," then you'd be exactly right! I find parallels interesting, especially since most of them appear to have the same names. There are a couple of differences, though.

    We Got No Man’s Sky and…

    Graev and I picked up No Man's Sky yesterday. I was completely against getting the game. I had no plans to get it because of all the bad things I'd heard over the last year. Graev called me up randomly and said, "I got No Man's Sky on sale for $29. You should get it too!" Since Graev and I really enjoy playing together, and hadn't had a game to play together in a while, I thought it was worth the risk.

    The Siege of Lordaeron Impressions

    The last pre-patch event before Battle for Azeroth's launch next Tuesday is here and gone all too quickly. In just 30 minutes I completed all of the new content this week. But how did it stack up against what we've seen so far?

    Beware, here there be spoilers. If you haven't played the little bit of content released today, don't keep reading. I don't spoil anything in BFA because I haven't played anything in BFA.

    Who Should Pull Mobs?

    Here's a great question for you guys.

    Who should pull mobs for the group if there is no dedicated pulling class - Crowd Control, DPS with aggro drop ability (Smoke bomb, FD etc.), the main tank or another option?

    First, I have to stop and appreciate for just a minute how awesome a game is when there are actually pulling classes.

    For a pulling class to exist, that means there must first be a mechanic which requires a group to sit back and brings mobs to it rather than faceroll through everything or 'play through' content.

    Then you have to actually have a class with uniquely designed abilities that aren't homogenized across all of the other classes and "core" archetypes like healer, tank, and dps. When there's a puller class, there's also typically a CC class and a support class that isn't a healer, and chances are class variety and role filling is quite varied too.

    Now to the question.
