I know, I have been an absentee blogger for quite a while.. It’s not that I haven’t been playing WoW. It’s really just that I haven’t been doing anything particularly interesting. Also, while quite a bit of interesting stuff has been going on with MoP beta and information coming out of that, well, I usually don’t talk about that stuff here. That’s what TNB is for, right?
But, I suppose things have been going on, so I might as well give a rundown. We are up to 3/8 Heroic Modes for DS. Yes, that is after the most recent “nerf”. We had been getting Morchok down on heroic for a while though. We just finally got Yor’sahj a couple weeks ago and this last week we downed Ultraxion. So far, none of the Hunter tokens have dropped but I have “high hopes” .
We have also gotten almost all of the Achievements in DS. I think my raid group has gotten all but the heroic ones but I still need “Taste the Rainbow”. This last week we finished up Chromatic Champion by getting the “blue pillar” done. Given the nerf and that we were generally running with our core group, it was much easier than we thought it would be.
What else is crazy? TNB is turning 4! That’s right. On May 27, the Twisted Nether Blogcast will be four years old.. I still can’t believe we have been going at this for so long. We just recorded episode 167 this past Saturday and, while we have been doing an “every other week” schedule for a little while, we’re back to weekly for at least the next few. We still love doing the show and I’m hoping to at least get to episode 200! I expect a big uptick in blog activity (from everyone out there and even possibly me) because of the huge number of changes coming in MoP.
In other gaming news, Diablo 3 releases TONIGHT! I will probably not be up at 3am when it finally unlocks but I’ll be sure to start it installing when I get up in the morning so I can play, possibly, when I get home. I am so excited about D3. Diablo and Diablo 2 were some of my favorite games of all time. I was even playing Diablo 2 when my wife told me we had to leave for the hospital to have my eldest child! If you haven’t seen it already, check out the 2D Short “Wrath”. It’s pretty awesome.
I also finished up Kingdoms of Amalur: The Reckoning last night. I was successful in my goal to finish it up before Diablo 3. I pushed it a bit, understatement, but I did it and I’m happy with my generally “clean” slate for Diablo 3.
I just want to say thank you to all of you out there that somehow still have this blog on your reader or wander in here every once in a while to see if I’ve posted anything. I really appreciate all of your support throughout all these years I’ve been doing this even through the slow times. Hopefully I can once again become more inspired in Mists and go back to posting more than once every 6 months..
