Last year’s mini archive

I didn’t really write blog posts last year… Between our huge move to Brussels and trying to catch back our delay in Warlords of Draenor, we didn’t have much time for a blog. Instead, I quoted a few screenshots and posted them on social medias. Here are the few ones I could find back in my hard-drive.

This first one was made during my favourite quest from Legion. For an Orc Hunter, what could be more amazing than to spend a night with Rexxar?

This house was the one where Sisqi and I were planning to retire (when we were still Alliance Druids). Deathwing (Chr. Metzen) destroyed many places in Azeroth, but Auberdine is the one I’d like the most to see rebuilt (along with Loch Modan). They should also clean the entire Darkshore and restore it to its previous glory. I plan to post something (maybe a video) about that zone and the npcs that were populating it. (like the Absent-Minded Propsector)

I was so thrilled to get the ability to tame mechanicals pets that the first thing I did was to collect them all and rename them. Pullover was the one I used the longest, it was also the one I had the most fun taming.

Warlords of Draenor was also the first time that people were raiding for fishing, and it was glorious! Spending an afternoon with a huge bunch of players, for no other reason than fishing mounts was really amazing. Especially when you catch them both!

If you’ve ever been farming The Eye for Ashes of Al’ar, then you know what I’m talking about…

This has to be my favourite easter egg from Legion. Talking about Game of Thrones, we’re only a few days away from the next season, the wait is almost over!

That’s all folks! I hope that you enjoyed these little souvenirs from my archives.

    I figured Vydhar had to be a reference to something, but I wasn’t quite sure if it was just something in general Norse mythology, or something else. I don’t watch Game of Thrones (or TV in general), so now I know!

    Hey Kamalia, thanks for your comment πŸ˜‰ If there was only one show you could watch, I’d advise you that one, it’s awesome!

    Hah, that was a fine achieve show, thank you very much πŸ˜€

    Aw, I hear you, restore Auberdine and Darkshore to how it used to look. Why not have it as a function in game at least, like in Blasted Lands?

    Those turtles are adorable up front, those eyes…β™₯

    Hah, yeah, blah blah indeed! Oldschool though, a little bit at least πŸ˜€ Could you imagine that fight back in Vanilla? Paladin buffs lasted like what, 5 minutes? πŸ˜› “Dudes, rebuff please…” “Seriously, the fight has not even begun yet?!” lol.

    I do not watch GoT either, sadly it’s too violent and “up in your face” for me, but I certainly understand why its so popular!

    Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

    Thanks for your nice comment, Alu πŸ˜‰

    I always enjoyed those old raids that required a long buffing (and re-buffing) phase, like Onyxia when the people took so long to fly to Menethil and we had to wait every single one of them. Then, finally, as we were finally ready to go, the main healer was shouting “wait guys, I need quick repair, brb” and all the buffs were expiring (again). I also remember Ragnaros, when we had to mind-control the priests from UBRS to get the fire-resist buff to the 40 people,… It was amazing!

    Ah, np, anytime πŸ™‚

    Oh yeah, aw! Thank you for reminding me. Remember the map of Dustwallow Marsh with all those little dots on it, showing 40 players who would slowly make their way to the Entrance (“Oh, sorry, forgot my necklace in the bank, lolz, I can’t enter brb guyz!” πŸ˜›

    Ah yes, the MC trick too! Shoot, such things are just being made impossible these days, sadly πŸ™ A little shame really, crushing the clever thinking like that.
