How to gear up for Tomb of Sargeras So you want to start raiding Tomb of Sargeras, but you don’t have enough gear. Well you’re in luck! Patch 7.2 and 7.2.5 made it relatively easy to get caught up so you can jump right into the new raid. Tomb of Sargeras LFR requires 860 to queue while dropping 885 gear, so I’d say...

What’s going on in July for WoW July is looking like a pretty packed month as far as events go. Not only do we have the weekly bonus events, but Burning Crusade Timewalking will bring the long-awaited Black Temple Timewalking raid. We have a couple Raid Finder wings expected to open this month as well as a few micro-holidays and PVP Brawls....




When did you get your first tier set? I’ve been playing World of Warcraft since the servers went live in 2004, but have never acquired a raid armor set until now. When the game launched, I already had two kids under 3 which made committing to a raid guild…problematic if I wanted to stay married. When the LFR feature launched in late Cataclysm...

Do you pug raids? I hear a lot of horror stories about LFR from friends who run it. Now, I haven’t done a lot of LFR this expansion. What I have done is pug raids, up to the first couple of bosses in Nighthold. So what I’m wondering from all of you is whether or not you think pugging...

Should DPS be kicked from LFR for low performance? The LFR feature is a great way for players to see end game content without the time commitment of joining a regular raid guild. The only barrier to entry so far has been gear level. Get your ilvl up and you’re in. I find most players don’t even know the strats other than “don’t stand...

What’s worth your play time? I ran an LFR recently (both currently available wings of LFR Nighthold, in fact) and used all of my Seals of Broken Fate. I didn’t get any drops from any of the bosses and none of my seals got me anything but Artifact Power. I logged off, went to Twitter, and found several other people...




The Nighthold raid preview and schedule now available If you’ve been waiting patiently and running Emerald Nightmare/Trial of Valor, now you can finally sink your teeth into the raid that continues Legion’s main storyline, as The Nighthold is coming soon. How soon? Soon enough that we’re getting this preview from the fine folks at Blizzard. In fact, here’s the schedule for US realms...

What do you do when feeling lazy? For me, my ultimate I feel like taking it easy today activity is to go run old Mists of Pandaria LFR for transmog looks. It’s just super easy, it takes absolutely no effort on my part, I don’t have to work at all and that’s just fine by me. Sometimes I’m not in the mood...



Patch 7.1 adds Quick Join feature One of the things that’s more important than ever in Legion is being able to find a group. With Mythics, Mythic+, World Bosses and the coming Karazhan 5-person dungeon with its weekly lockout, if you want to see all the content the expansion has to offer, you need to find a group of like-minded friends....

Emerald Nightmare raid
Does LFR matter anymore? I’ve run Emerald Nightmare LFR. Once. We got a question on the podcast about this and at the time I answered that LFR is still cool for people who don’t want to run Mythics and it’s still worth doing even in the face of World Quests, but now I think maybe I was wrong. Because...

Do you feel group anxiety? Unless I’m rolling with friends, people I know, I’ve gotten to the point where I simply can’t group with other players. Part of it is my disability — I can’t see out of my right eye and there’s a big blind spot in my left — and how it hampers my performance. It’s hard for...

Emerald Nightmare launch September 20, Mythic and LFR a week later We knew the Emerald Nightmare raid would be arriving a short three weeks after Legion’s launch, but now Blizzard has given us a schedule for raid and dungeon releases. All of Legion’s dungeons will be open in Normal and Heroic modes on launch day, letting you start getting ready for harder dungeons and the expansion’s first...

Breakfast Topic: Fear This one’s a little personal, but you all know about it already, so why not? Essentially, the damage to my eyes means that I can’t see things as well as I once could, and that’s had a big impact on how I play WoW. I can’t see incoming mobs as well, I miss ground effects,...

Breakfast Topic: What great tip did you never know about? Recently I was queuing up for an LFR run to get a Savage Satchel of Cooperation, hoping for some Baleful tokens my alt army could use. I decided to see what other raids I hadn’t run that week that were also providing satchels at the moment when I accidentally queued up for one of those...
