The Expansion Agenda—Where To Begin?
2010/08/19 at 6:36 PM
In 2006, when the release of the Burning Crusade was not too far away, I remember feeling rushed to level my paladin to the level cap before it was raised. I didn't think I'd manage to make it in time, but luckily for me I did, and with very little time to spare. In retrospect, this was also a bad thing, too, because by that time almost everyone had very little need or interest to go to instances like
, which I needed to do for the quest chain to get the
. Despite the setback, I was ready for the Burning Crusade expansion like most other people, and couldn't wait to start leveling my paladin again.
And then came the day of the expansion's release. As soon as I picked up my preordered copy of the Burning Crusade, I remembered thinking, "Forget my paladin, I want to play the new races!" That's right, the level 60 paladin into which I had put countless hours of work was abandoned because of a brand new Draenei Shaman on my character list. I spent a month or so leveling my shaman before I finally realized that all the time that I had put into my new shaman should have been used on my paladin instead.
WTB Time to Play WoW!
2010/02/16 at 12:28 PM
There is some unexplainable satisfaction I get from having a productive and meaningful day, even on those really long, dreadful days. But, for me, once all my work is done, all I want to do is go home and relax without having to worry about any work other than the typical daily housework. That would be so nice if every day was like that, but in reality, what is supposed to be my "free time" after a long day will, more often than not, delayed by more work that needs to be done.
I don't remember the last time I was able to devote
of my free time to World of Warcraft. In fact, the last time I've played the game was over six months ago. I probably haven't made any real progress, like leveling my 77 paladin to 80, since before then. Maybe it's because I've had less and less free time over the last several months, but it's not like the amount of free time I have now is scarce.
Looking Back at 2009 and Forward to 2010
2010/01/02 at 1:36 AM
Here we are, folks, right before the start of not only a new year but also a new decade. Hopefully, next year will provide us with new opportunities, new inventions, maybe even new resolutions—although, on second thought, I've really yet to meet someone dedicated to carrying out a New Year's resolution—and hopefully more happiness to everyone around the world.
Today we should take some brief time to look back on the year 2009, and take a moment to remember all the changes in our lives. It could be something as simple as getting a car. Or maybe you have a memory from something WoW-related, be it inside or outside the game itself.
What is your best memory of 2009?
Remember, you can include something WoW-related! And
what are you looking forward to when 2010 comes?
I've included a reflection of my own here, as well as one of
's. If you're interested in seeing the reflections, they are immediately after the break. :)

Blizzard Authenticators: Are They Worth It?
2009/11/13 at 1:39 AM
The Authenticator is an excellent tool that keeps unwanted hackers out of your account through a nearly infallible method. However, this device also has the potential to cause a
of inconvenience for the account holder, oftentimes more trouble than it would cause for a hacker. I can say from this personal experience because I’ve gone through it twice already. After the second incident, it really made me reconsider whether or not the Authenticator was worth the hassle.
The first time happened was when I went on a trip to Northern California.
