World of Warcraft ~ Understanding Endgame

February 14, 2010 2 comments

This post is fueled by a rant I have held back more than just once for players who simply don’t get what they’re doing; DKs in spell-power gear, Discipline Priest without Power Word:Shield on their action bars, Hunters speccing all their points in one talent tree (occasionally having half a dozen of unspent points), gemming expertise on a warlock, leaving half your rogue’s gear unenchanted…

There’s always a start, and that applies to everything.  The first step we take is most probably the most important one.  I’ve always been one for the crazy uncollected thoughts, and either repeating ideas to myself until my head burst, or writing it down and reading it over was and still is the only way for me to get it right and organized.

I’ve been interested in writing a blog for quite some time now, although WoW wasn’t the topic I had in mind back then.  I wanted to give it a shot while aiming to put myself as the audience. Read more…
