More World of Warcraft Legion Fan-girling

I just can’t get over how amazing the scenery is! I swear, the imagery really just sucks me in. When people ask me why I love this game so much, it’s this scene that explains why.

And do I have a “pixel crush” on Jarod Shadowsong?

Another thing I’m enjoying about this expansion: having a holy “Voidwalker”. Well, it’s called a Lightspawn and you can get him once a day from the Well of Light to fight for you for ten minutes. He heals you as he’s fighting. I wish there was an option to have Lightspawn instead of the shadowy thing.DD and holy void

Even though, on Blizzard’s side, the game has been running fairly smooth (thank you, again, Blizzard), idiots have decided to DDOS WoW. Why? You would think hackers would be smarter. “Let’s annoy everyone because we’re bored and because we can” should be their motto. Do something different. Be original. Hack the major US banks and corporations and reset our society. Be useful, shit. As soon as I hit 110, WoW crashed. And of course, with me being on a very populated server, the queue time was 30 minutes. I don’t mind the wait. I can multitask. But I shouldn’t have been knocked offline for the selfishness of others in the first place. *end rant*

Before bed, I tested the waters of a few new dungeons. They were all so much fun to play, but Maw of Souls has the best end boss fight so far. Why? Stormy weather, held captive on a ship that takes you to the WoW equivalent of Hades (I love the incorporation of twists on various mythologies).

Halls of Valor was pretty fun, as well. Can you say, ‘Ludicrous speed’?

And of course, the transmog!

World of Warcraft: Legion Release is Purely Epic

So many people, including myself, were dreading the launch day usual suspects: severe lag, server disconnects, random restarts. Who remembers the Warlords of Draenor epic “I’m stuck in flight” fiasco when we first discovered our garrisons?

Stuck on our gryphons, then we fell out of the sky…

The release of Legion was not only a huge sigh of relief, but it’s been purely amazing! Legion is the smoothest expansion release I have ever had the pleasure of being a part of. I was already logged into my account, playing my alliance priest when it was released. All I did was hit “reload ui” and BOOM! My experience bar was simply activated and a quest popped up on my screen telling me to meet up with Archmage Khadgar.

And the content? Beautiful, rustic and natural views.

Instead of the lonely, boring and overly hyped garrisons of WoD, we have individual Class Halls. The Priest CH is so serene. And I think I witnessed some romance brewing between two NPC Priests.

My artifact weapon is so dope! I was disappointed that weapons were removed from the game. However, when I received my artifact weapon and learned how they worked–much like our old class talent trees, I was so stoked. I’m so glad that I decided to stick with Discipline and not switch to Holy. Discipline is incredibly fun and has such high survivability. Although, I did accidentally kill a Shaman (twice) with my dots. He/She/They was questing near me and, if you play Disc, you know that when you use Penance on a target effected by your Purge the Wicked, your Purge the Wicked spreads to nearby enemies, including enemy players. I’m all for PvP–I love it! But I wasn’t intentionally trying to PvP, only get some quests done, so I felt a little bad–and powerful!Artifact weapon talents

Blizzard is known for including pop culture into WoW and Legion is full of it. Have you seen the meme floating around of Dave Chappelle as Tyrone Biggums, a crack addict character from his sketch comedy, Chapelle’s Show? The memes are always asking if we have anymore of whatever is popular at the time. One of the most popular versions of the meme is “You got anymore of that WoW subscription?”warcrack

Meet, Runas and other mana fiends.

Are you playing Legion? What’s been your favorite aspect so far? I’ll be streaming Legion throughout the week. If you aren’t playing Legion, come get a glimpse of how it looks! So don’t forget to follow my social media to find out when I stream so you can stop by and say hi!
