This week in WoW:
What We've Been Doing:
Pet Battles along the road. Launch + 2 days had the whole zone to myself. Warmode on, a slightly better amount of exp for quests and kills.
Nine Blizzard Support tickets, and this is what it boils down to:
Blizzard can’t read and understand the text in the tickets.
I’m very sad about the fact that it is so difficult for them to understand that what ask of them is a company service Blizzard offers.
And they still can’t get their heads around that simple fact, the fact that i now have a US code and just want it applied to my account and the refund as Blizzard Balance on my account.
It worked with Battle for Azeroth, why not with Shadowlands?
The height of hypocrisy was the fact that they stated the following:
Carved In Stone, Written In Blood - Study the history of the blood trolls by locating the pictographs in Nazmir.
Death Rising Complete the Death Rising storyline leading up to the events of Shadowlands.
Shadowlands Safari does NOT have an achievement pet reward attached to it.
Master of Minions - Collect 1000 unique pet.
Finished the 4 Falcosaur quest chains and obtained the 4 corresponding mounts.
Trelane reached Level 60.
Started my Maldraxxus Necrolords Campaign.
Went back into the Maw and into Torgast.
Got my first additional follower from Torgast
Leveled Tailoring to 70/100. Crafting some 32 slot bags, i didn’t get the 34 slot one from the Pre-Event boss, sadly.
Leveled Enchanting to 26/115 by mainly disenchanting items i got and crafted.
Did some fishing 83/200.
No cooking yet, so 1/75 on that front.
Not sure why all the different skill maximums.
It is interesting though.
My favorite Shadowlands Cloth set, so far:
Have a great day!
Hope you all had a good week. Thanks to the little holiday break I was able to get in some WoW time! Currently playing my main shaman and have finished the first two zones and am nearly at level 56. I am liking the story so far and I am interested to see where it goes. I also like seeing some of the old heroes and villains from the past make an appearance again. It never occured to me that this could be a thing with us visiting the world of the dead.
Our Blast from the Past for the week comes from episode 427. Enjoy!
Each week GrandNagus takes a closer look at some of the most useful World of Warcraft addons out there.
Addon(s) of the week: Warning, Overwolf is taking over CurseForge from Twitch this coming week.
They will shut down shop for the week.
They wanted to do so on the week of Shadowlands release, but, according to WoWHead, that didn’t happen and got pushed to Nov. 30th.
