The next WoW expansion has been announced!!!
And it looks awesome.
I really, REALLY hope I get into beta, because I am going to play the hell out of a demon hunter.
That class, just looks like so much fun.
This begs the question though, is Illidan seriously coming back?
Is he going to be a good guy this time, or a bad guy?
CAN he even be a good guy?
Apparently there will be a Q and A on Sunday from Gamescon.
In the meantime you can watch the recorded live stream of the announcement here.

Alts, Alts and MOAR ALTZ!!!

So many alts.
Around New Years Eve the question was thrown out there into the world, "What is your WoW goal for this year?" and it occurred to me that I don't usually make a "wow goal".
Usually my goal New Years goal or "resolution" is to either replace the job I hate with a job I hate less or, preferably, don't hate at all...or, if I'm unemployed, find a job I don't hate.  That is a whole lot harder than it sounds.  I've only managed to get jobs I love at places where my position was temporary or the company got purchased and/or shut down. 

So this year I had the bright idea to make a WoW goal instead!
What did I decide to make my goal?
To get a level 100 of each class...on both factions.
That's right!  TWO of each class at max level.
So...twenty two 100s total...if my maths are right, which they may not be.

So far, it's gone OK.  I got 5 classes to 100 as Horde, somewhere in the middle of that I got my Alliance hunter to 100.
Got a couple more Horde characters around 90, and I've gotten at least two more Alliance characters to level 60 - 70.
The problem I'm having with the Alliance characters is I have to start at level one, except for the Death Knight....and just spam queuing for lowbie dungeons gets REALLY old.  But it's a lot faster than actually questing.
I'm sure I will have this down to a science soon!
There's also a good chance I give up on this goal, because it's ridiculous and time-consuming.
I did learn tonight that when 4 of your guildies make lowbies as well, and you spam queue for dungeons together, it's REALLY fun.  Leveling buddies are the best, leveling groups are even better!
My Alliance guild is so awesome. :-)

Anyone else out there trying to follow through with a WoW resolution/goal?

YouTube Channel The Vazula

I made a YouTube channel a while back where I upload gameplay videos too.
I'll probably try uploading videos from games other than just WoW eventually, and maybe videos that aren't gameplay, but other things as well.
Here's the link. :-)

Live Long and Prosper...

Today the world mourns.
The world lost a great man today.
Rest in Peace Leonard Nimoy.

For those who are interested, here's some things I found....

Leonard Nimoy's last tweet from last Sunday.

Spock's death and funeral from Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan.

 Leonard Nimoy's The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins.

Leonard's Nimoy's Hollywood star with a single rose placed on it.
Note: this is customary in Hospice, when a patient passes, a rose is placed on the door to the room they inhabited.

And last and probably least, sadly giving the Vulcan Salute.
(It's very hard to take a selfie while doing this, btw.)

Live Long and Prosper, friends.

World of Warcraft: FINALLY! New Blood Elf Models!

I'm a little late on this one, as they were previewed a long time ago and they were on the PTR for a while but....THE NEW BELF MODELS ARE FINALLY HERE!

These are the preview screenshots Blizzard uploaded a while back.

WoW Insider Logging Off?

Yesterday, marks the end of an era.
One of the most popular World of Warcraft sites is going down, the staff having been fired/laid off, or whatever you want to call it, by AOL.
Good bye WoW Insider, you will be missed.

I started following WoW Insider in it's beginnings, not long after the original World of Warcraft was released.  I used to follow Scattered Shots religiously, even emailing Frostheim a few times and getting a response!  That made my year. :-)
Scattered Shots and the other class columns were crucial for players who wanted to be their best.
WoW Insider will be sorely missed, but here's hoping that they get more than enough support that they need to carry on with the next project, Blizzard Watch. :-)

Warlords of Draenor Beta Ends

The beta servers for Warlords of Draenor went down for good today.
Between extreme lag that caused me to not be able to res after being one-shot by the bosses, and other baddies, that were dropped in front of the Orgrimmar gates, and getting disconnected every few minutes, I didn't get many screenshots or videos.
I did get some, however, and you can view that here.

I thought I was pretty lucky to get video of the servers last seconds, because there was sooo many people there, as you can see.
It was total chaos.
Good times!
While I am a bit sad, it was fun, and I'm looking forward to Warlords going live.
If I hadn't gotten into the beta and got a chance to see the amazing content that is in store for us, I might have quit since I'm sooo sick of Mists, lol.

I sincerely hope I get to be a part of the next beta or even alpha test.
Thank you to Blizzard, for allowing me to be a part of the WoD beta. <3
