Sprout video of the week: A YouTube channel for FFXIV lore: The Eorzean Archives - YouTube .

I go there often if I want to know something about a zone, race, area or the like.

The last thing I started watching was their video about the city of Amdapor and it’s history. It’s a 1h 45m video about the Amdapor society from its foundation to its fall.

As of June 2nd I only have the WoW PTR and D2R installed when it comes to BNetApp games.

I created another alt for the Road to 80 project, because I realized that I totally forgot that I need a reference point with regards to levels obtained on a normal toon without the buff.

So I'm leveling that one in stages and copying the same thing on the Road to 80 buffed toon.

The normal toon reached MSQ 2.0 ending at level 53 on the main job.

Doing some PvP. Grinding glam gear. I found a new healing glam set I want to get.

My RAF gear above and my new PvP glam below



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

WoWUp lost access to the CurseForge library of WoW addons with the launch of the new Overwolf API.

That doesn’t mean WoWUp, or other clients that don’t have access to that API anymore is useless, but it just doesn’t support the CurseForge library any longer.

You can install and use the stand alone CurseForge client, that I mentioned last week, and they said that it would be independent of Overwolf, so we have to see how far reaching that independence truly is.

You can find GrandNagus on Twitter @GrandNagus1, or by email at
