This week in WoW:
Battleground Bonus Event starts
PvP Brawl: Arathi Blizzard begins
Feast of Winter Veil starts on sunday 16th
and lasts until wednsday, Jan. 2nd

What We've Been Doing:



Wee buff too good to resist on Saturday, played from 7am until 1 am. Watched several movies, ate food at the computer, queued with friends for timewalking.

Grisly trophy quest completed on 3 characters and started on a fourth.

Played rogue, death knight, priest, paladin, other paladin, warrior and did a little alchemy transmutes for Living steel.  Sold 1 mount.

Warfront requires iLvl 320, fortunately the items the vendor sells in Timewalking are 320 so It was just a short hop and skip away to get the priest to loot the 370 iLvl cloak on Saturday.

Little bit of Auction House, another 45k spend on enchanting, really tough without 3 star recipes, and still 30 points to go.

Gave a friend cloth shoes, she didn’bt want to spend 10k on that slot, so I sold to her for 1k.

Started streaming on a regular shedule:
Monday, wednsday and saturday at 9am ET
Lost a green man toon (Forsaken Warlock) at lvl 21 in the Northern Barrens and another earlier today (Forsaken Rogue) at lvl 12 in Tirisfal Glades on the tower quest. Not ever gonna do that again on a challenge toon!!.
Beyond that i played a minimum of WoW.
Dipped my toe into Destiny 2 again, liking it very much.


Hello everyone!

Hope everyone has had a great week!  It was the end of the Trimester at our school, so I was a tad busy trying to get everything graded and report cards submitted.  Downside is that I didn't have much time to play this week, but the upside is that with a new Trimester and everything being caught up now I should be able to log in for a few hours soon.

Here is this week's Blast from the Past, coming to you from episode 359.  I apologize that it is a bit longer than my usual submissions, but hopefully you'll forgive me after listening to it :)

Till next week!


Each week GrandNagus takes a closer look at some of the most useful World of Warcraft addons out there.

Addon(s) of the week: GW2 UI and Easy Scrap

GW2 UI screenshots:
Character screen

Profession screen

Spells, specs and talents screen

Easy Scrap adds a new frame to the Scrap interface that shows you all items in your bags available for scrapping and lets you queue items.
  • See all items you can scrap without having to look in your bags and search for even faster results.
  • Queue up items and have them automatically placed into the scrapper when the scrapper is empty again.
  • Create a keybinding for the scrap button. Look under Key Bindings->Addons->Easy Scrap
  • Hide specific items you do not want to see in the "Eligible" tab by right clicking them.
  • With the default filter automatically hides all gear that is used in an equipment set.
  • Create custom filters to automatically ignore items. Leave a comment if you have a specific filter request.
If you want to macro the scrap button create a macro with the following text:
/click EasyScrap_ScrapKeybindFrame
