In case you’ve been hiding in a small hole where not even Jinx promotional emails can get to you, World of Warcraft’s Legion expansion launched over a month ago. It was a slow trickle of content release before that, since the class and system changes went live early August along with story content like demon invasions and scenarios where a bunch of main characters from the Warcraft lore had their battle-rez on cooldown when they died, and several people were /promoted. Finally, the deluge of Legion happened, and it was amazingly – and surprisingly – great. As in, one of the best expansions in any game ever.

Those of you who have followed me on here know that I haven’t been a World of Warcraft guy. I started playing last January, got a hunter to level 86, and quit to go back to SWTOR or TSW or one of my other standard plays.

Things were different for Legion for one reason and one reason only: Class Identity. This is a day-and-age where SWTOR is abandoning the thing that made it great, their class stories. It’s a time when games have come out that have had the ability to change class at will with the same character, like The Secret World and Firefall.

Update 2.0 Leveling Gear Guide

June 13, 2013 7 comments

Welcome to the Update 2.0 Leveling Gear Guide! This guide is compiled from a combination of my experience leveling a brand new character on a brand new server without the aid of my crafters and the knowledge of the systems in place.

This guide is not an endgame gearing guide. Once you hit level 55, you are on your own. This is a guide about getting the maximum use out of your planetary commendations while leveling. First off, let’s talk about what planetary commendations are. Read more…

Did Bioware Back Themselves Into A Corner?

Story is Bioware’s fourth pillar in Star Wars: The Old Republic. They have spent possibly millions of dollars on voice acting alone. Almost every single quest in the entire game is voice-acted, and in fact, they literally hold the world record for voice-over content. What does that mean when it comes to putting out future content?
