I realised recently that I’ve been neglecting my thoughts. Or to be more precise, not releasing them from the confines of my head!
Many moons ago I had an active tumblr and a blogspot/blogger for this reason. Both sadly neglected in recent times.
So this is an attempt to try again (I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve said this, which I am sure is true of most developers – too busy tinkering!).

I’ve been playing Diablo 3 this past week and wishing I was on the beta test.
There’s plenty of things that seem to have slipped past the testers which lead me to this post.
In order to get on to Blizzard’s testing, all you need to do is submit your computer specs and be a paying subscriber. Then you may get a beta invite for a new game, and more likely if you subscribe to WoW then you’ll get to play on the PTR (Public Test Realm).
This is all well and good, but it seems most users don’t grasp the idea of what testing means. Continue reading “When is a tester not a tester?”
The Feast of Winter Veil will soon be upon us in Azeroth, are you ready for the achievements?
On Xmas day, it’s a chance to get some cool companion pets (which, if you stockpile them!, can generate some gold throughout the year). Blizzard has changed them now too so that they don’t require snowballs, not to mention some of them can’t be called outside of the event; and the Winter Reindeer is a plain reindeer outside of the event!!
From what I remember, small eggs sell really well at this time too (to make egg nog for one of the achievements/quests).
It should start around the 15th December, so time to get ready!
It’s Pilgrim’s Bounty in Azeroth at the moment – see http://www.wowhead.com/achievements=1.155.14981
A chance to get some achievement points, a cool companion pet, and a title!
Also, the biggest boon from this World Event is that you can quite easily (and cheaply!!) level your cooking skill up to 300 with a bit of travelling (or portal-ing for mages!).
As with Fishing, Cooking is a secondary skill that doesn’t have level requirements for getting to max level 🙂
As with most things, Dugi has it covered here: http://www.ultimatewowguide.com/blog/2011/11/pilgrims-bounty-guide/
There are plenty of other guides out there, but I love Dugi’s guides (my personal preference).
