World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria review Part 5 – Townlong Steppes

Welcome to Part 5 of my World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria review. Today, I am looking at the zone Townlong Steppes. I only completed this zone after I hit 90. On the road to 90, I completed maybe a dozen quests and went straight to Dreadwastes for a quest XP bump. I decided to [...]

Impressions from the road to Level 90

So I reached level 90 over the weekend. The main highlight apart from reaching the new max level is to finally be able to fly. It is amazing just how much of the world you DON'T see when you are on the ground. It is a whole different world up there and it has been [...]

PAX Australia in Melbourne?

Gizmodo last week posted a story saying that promotional material for PAX Australia indicates it will take place at the Melbourne Showgrounds from 19 to 21 July.  Allow me to say BOO!  While I love Melbourne, I really hoped that it might take place a little closer to home.  Sadly, the Gold Coast and Sydney already has [...]

Geek Speak Live

I'm a big fan of a local Podcast that discusses all things pop culture.  Recorded in a local comic book store, they focus primarily on comics, but also discuss movies, tv, games and the odd bit of techie goodness such as the Raspberry Pi!  They also have their own TV show, most impressive.  They have [...]

ASP.NET, C# and Server 2008 R2 (A post about something other than WoW!)

Just so that everyone doesn't think that I only post about World of Warcraft, I thought I would post a quick update on what IT projects I am currently working on.  I have worked in IT for about 5 years now and recently my role has evolved from basic IT Support to Application Development and [...]

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria review Part 4 – Valley of the Four Winds

I finished Valley of the Four Winds yesterday and while I didn’t think it was as good as The Jade Forest, it still had some excellent chains with some memorable characters. The quest chain I was most looking forward to was Nessingwary who brought his son along to make a name for himself. I won’t [...]

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria review Part 3 – Alchemy

So I’ve realised that Blizzard has made most of the professions much easier to level. Inscription is still the easiest, but Alchemy wasn’t far behind. You learn very little from the Alchemy trainer. You start by crafting green potions that in turn have a chance to teach you to make something else. I didn’t mind [...]

World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria review Part 2 – Inscription

I got Inscription to the new max level of 600 a day after launch. I must admit that it was incredibly easy and probably a little too easy. But I do appreciate that Blizzard didn’t make it too hard to level professions in this expansion. In past expansions, it is just so damn difficult to [...]

First World of Warcraft Mists of Pandaria review – The Jade Forest

This is part 1 of my review of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria. It isn’t going to be anything hardcore, but will merely go through what I like and don’t like about different aspects of the expansion. I just finished the first Mists of Pandaria zone today, The Jade Forest. All in all very [...]

Mists of Pandaria!

I'm really enjoying the new WoW expansion.  Those first few Alliance quests were painful but after you get out of there it isn't so bad.  I am pumped about trying out some of the new reputation factions as well such as the Order of the Cloud Serpents, The Tillers and The Lorewalkers.  Really excited about [...]
