This week in WoW:

Running of the Gnomes (The Great Gnomeregan Run will be on Oct. 9th.

Diablo 2 Resurrected launches on Sept. 23rd

Overlords of Outland”, the first content patch is LIVE in TBCC WoW.

This opens Serpentshrine Caverns and The Eye raid dungeons, as well as Arena season 2.

Ogri’la and Sha’tari Skyguard Daily Quests will be available as well as the Guild Bank feature and LFG, both of which were originally added in WotLK in current WoW.

Updated art.

Paintings and icons as well as names of items have been changed.

Listen to music from Shadowlands: Chains of Domination on YouTube.

WoW PTR news:

The Mage Tower on the Broken Shore will reopen, no info on how the unlocking mechanics will work yet.

New rewards to keep the original Legion current rewards unique to that expansion proper.

New set recolors, a mount for defeating the encounters with each available class and a new werebear for the Guardian Druids, fel infused this time.

You need to be Renown 80 to unlock the Mark we talked about last week to boost your Renown to 40 in other Covenants or on alts. I find this excessive. To unlock it, if you want a grind, the level of Renown needed should reflect the Renown given via this item. But I talked about this last week and my point from last week stands.

What We've Been Doing:



No New Pets or Mounts.  Sold 2 Vial of the Sands.  Trying to collect more toys.  I see a lot of Hunters at the Auction House with Loqu’nahak as their pet.

Grand Nagus

Played a couple of hours of D2R this last week. Though I haven't gotten into it that much yet with so much going on IRL, two birthdays in the family and all it’s been a busy week in and out of game.

Syntax in FFXIV is so cool. Sylphs are a plant type beast tribe race and they don’t use “I” and “We” nor “You” and “They”. They say “This one” or “That one”

Got a new car (special event mount).

Pretty sunset in Limsa Lominsa

Unlocked some Battle Jobs in the last few days.

Black Mage (BLM) Classic glass cannon mage.

Scholar (SCH) Healer with a healing pet.

Summoner (SMN) Caster dps with a pet, like a water elemental, only you have choices for what element you can have, fire, earth and wind, i think. I’ve just unlocked the job, so I don't know exactly yet.

Both SCH and SMN unlock from the Arcanist (ACN) class at level 30, like all jobs from base classes. And you level both jobs at the same time.

FFXIV: Save 50% on Collector’s Edition Digital Upgrades Until 30 Sept

Maintenance in FFXIV on Tuesday from 2 am - 7 am GMT. Maintenance is generally longer in FFXIV than in WoW.


Hello all,

Extremely busy, hope life settles down soon.  Do not enjoy working 12 hour days just to stay afloat on what needs to get done. Blarg!

Here is a blast from the past from episode 443.  Enjoy!



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