BFA is just around the corner

And with BFA I mean the new Word of Warcraft expansion Battle for Azeroth. This new expansion will be released exactly one week from now. The last expansion Legion was one of the best expansions we’ve seen over the years. I’ve enjoyed it very much. But to be honest I stopped playing World of Warcraft several months ago. And this freed up a lot of time to other things that …

Access to alpha for Battle for Azeroth

Today I received an e-mail from Blizzard informing me that I have been selected to participate in the alpha test version for the upcoming expansion Battle for Azeroth. I hope this means that I will automatically also get access to the beta version that will be released soon. I’m not going to try the alpha version because well… it’s alpha. I’m not even sure if I will be trying the …

Achieving Ahead of the Curve: Argus the Unmaker

Today was a good day for me in the World of Warcraft. I got my achievement Ahead of the Curve: Argus the Unmaker by killing Argus in Antorus on Heroic difficulty. That means I also received the awesome mount that goes really good with my transmog. Many thanks to Laurens and the people in his guild who made this possible by boosting me. So that’s one thing to cross of …

This is going to change the world… of warcraft

Blizzard announced at Blizzcon 2017 that a new World of Warcraft called Battle for Azeroth expansion will be released somewhere next year. Awesome introduction cinematic, as always. I’m excited! I think most players are excited. Are you excited? Let me know by leaving a comment below. The video below shows all the previous World of Warcraft Expansion cinematics in chronological order, including the very first one from 2004. That’s the …

It’s time for some Cosplay!

This weekend is Gamescom 2017 in Germany where Blizzard has already presented their new upcoming content. I was pretty surprised to learn that the new patch goes live next week already!! Still so many things to do before then :-|.  What I always love is the Cosplay contest at these events. Transmogging is one of the elements in the game World of Warcraft that I really like so you can …

The quest to find Leeroy

If you are not a World of Warcraft player you should stop reading right now because this post will probably not make any sense to you. I’ve decided to embark on a quest to find Leeroy. He’s not dead yet so he’s got to be somewhere! I will start where the Terminator also started his quest; in the phone-book registry. So let’s start making some calls! I will post the …

I need one of these because of reasons

I would love to have one of these old Blizzard servers that the game World of Warcraft used to run on. Back in the day a realm used to run on one of these bad boys. I need one of these servers for nostalgic reasons. And of course to mess around with to get my own private server running 🙂

Progress in Tomb of Sargeras

Our guild Vliegende Hollanders (Trollbane-EU) has recently decided to team up with Shadow Army (Aerie Peak-EU) to combine our resources and manpower to make some progress in the new Tomb of Sargeras raid and it was a very successful evening. I uploaded a compilation to youtube for those very few people that are interested in watching it.

Some loving words and appreciation towards Blizzard

I haven’t been playing the new World of Warcraft expansion Legion as much as I thought I would before it was released due to even less important activities that have been taking up most of my time. Writing this post for example might be one those things. I’m even falling behind on some of my friends and guildies! What the f is wrong with me? Can somebody please check my …

Fighting as a snowman in PvP BG during WoD Season III

If you are a World of Warcraft player and know your stuff a bit than you will probably see the fun in this video. If not then please carry on, there’s nothing to see here. Completely by accident I found out that it’s possible to be transformed in to a snowman, but still be able to move around. Normally when you use this common toy then you are also transformed …

Ironman achievement in WSG BG WoW

Well this achievement only took me several years to get lol. A fair dosage of luck plays a big role in getting this achievement. I already gave up on getting it on my pally. But then, one hot Sunday afternoon, when least expected, I earned the famous Ironman Achievement. I really have the healer that accompanied me to thank for it because without those heals I would have never made …

Ret Paladin in PvP Battleground WoD Season III

This is just some random battleground PvP gameplay I recorded somewhere during Warlords of Draenor Season III. To be honest I still miss the way the game-play was for my ret paladin. Overal I’m always happy or don’t even care at all what Blizzard changes in the game but this time I was really annoyed and pretty upset. Now that I think back I realize I still feel a bit …

Quest NPC’s helping me in PvP battleground

I’ll be posting most of my Youtube video’s here eventually. Here’s one of the very first ones I uploaded. If you are not familiar with the game World of Warcraft than this will have little or no meaning to you. But for those who do.. it was a funny situation. I was in the middle of a lowlevel quest that instructed me to gather some npc’s and bring them to …
