Touring Draenor

Touring Draenor

Finally I've put some time aside to have jolly good nose around this brave and savage new world of Draenor. No more staring at the Garrison map or hitting target dummies and wondering why the zeros are missing, no, to site seeing for me! With wellingtons on, pack-a-mac er packed and trusty instamatic camera in toe... to Draenor I shall go. 162Read more …

How to keep playing when this all gets stale

We all know the feeling; you've raided that damn raid for 10 months and at some point someone has complained they're "sick of doing this boss!". Everyone nods, it's true, you've all killed the buggers more times than you can count.

Well, its not to say that I don't like people just that I've found I tend to avoid them. This is all in games of course, real life Drayton is a nice chap really. It's just these MMOs where I've found myself shunning human (and teenage) company, though I'm not sure why. 58Read more …

10 years: 10 Questions. WoW!

So there was a call to arms from the girlfriend... she'd found a World of Warcraft based survey and we just had to fill it out, also, what a great time to do some Wordpress blogging that she'd started getting interested in. Having the web space, I got the Wordpress set up duties so I thought I'd have a pop too. So here it is, a quick 10 question WoW survey, for those nice folks over at alt:ernative chat. 30Read more …

Ten

that's the number of years there's been this strange part of life that called Drayton. Tens years of paladining around the various landscapes Blizzard have thrown in front of him, sometimes wearing a pink dress (OMG I was healing you, stop laughing!), mostly wondering why the shaman and druid get to play more. 26Read more …

So, blogging eh, this is novel. Staring at all the white (or possibly black; themes are a bugger to chose) space wondering what to do, what to do. How about starting with a picture of a dancing panda? How very Warcraft...Read more …
